Who Is the Greatest Wrestler of the 90's?.... Part 1 Now finished.

Rate this Entry
This Blog is to see who really was the best wrestler of the 90's. This is how it will be done, It will be done by star ratings, I will get the best Wrestlers of the decade and get their 10 highest rated matches, tally up their star ratings and who ever has the highest score wins.... This Is for American wrestling only and is limited to WWF/WCW/ECW... Remember this is who had the Best matches and nothing else. This is to see who the Best "Wrestler" of the 90's is

How Will the Star ratings be used?
Ok it will be a mixture of Wrestling journalist and what I think mixed in one, I will be unbiased, Some matches that are dated or overated I will cut down their rating by a little to fit where they should be, Classic matches I wont touch like the Ladder Match at WM10 cause that is a classic and is 5 stars. Matches that I think are 5 stars but get mixed reviews by Wrestling journilist, I will meet in the middle or put in to proper perspective such as I think Bret and Shawn Michales Iron Man match is 5 stars, Most rate it 4 1/2 to 4 3/4, so I will just call it 4 3/4.... Confused? Dont be.

So Heres the men with the best Decade so far. Now will see who is the Great Wrestler of the 90s.



Ric Flair
In no particular order here are Ric Flairs best matches of the 90s by highest star ratings (Royal Rumble 1992 is not counted cause battle Royals dont apply).

1. Wargames 1991 ****1/2
Sting, Brian Pillman , Rick Steiner & Scott Steiner vsRic Flair, Barry Windham, Sid Vicious & Larry Zbyszko .... This Was a Brawl, These men destroyed each other with the Story of the match being Pillman. People Rate this clost to 5 stars or 5 stars, I seen it a few days ago its more like 4 1/2.

2. Ric Flair vs Randy Savage Wrestlemania 8 ****1/2
One of the best feuds of the 90s, With a incredible Wrestlemania match. This was a dream match and lived up to it and is worth 4 1/2 star rating.

One of Foleys best matches ever. Must see, One of the best matches of the 90's 5 stars.

2. Dude Love vs Steve Austin Over the Edge IYH 1998 ****3/4
One of the best Brawls you will ever see, Great Storyline and Violence, What more can you ask... I would rate this 5 stars but thats being biased and is usually rated 4 3/4 so ill stick with that.

3. Mankind vs The Undertake Hell in the Cell ****1/2
The gutsiest performance I ever seen. I rate this 5 stars but so many reviewers called it much less so ill give it 4 1/2.. I can see peoples gripe with the match and calling it in the mid 4's and not 5. but I still Love the match.

Brutal match. This is a Fight and these mean beat each other Bad. 4 1/4.

    Nice effort. Shawn Michaels was the first name on my mind, but Bret Hart could score very high because of your chosen system.

    You should think about what to do in case of a split decision. I would propose taking longevity in account.. top matches in 1990, 1993, 1997 and 1999 is even more impressive then 10 in 1996,1997,1998 (though that of course is fantastic too), or you could go with 'different guys worked top matches with'. But it's your party..

    If you need help PM me a wrestler and the critic sites you wish to include, I'll make time to look one or two up.

    Personally I agree with you about the Shawn Vs Bret Iron Man match. It made it where both guys were equal!

    my first instinct was austin, but since he really started having great matches in 97 he only has 3 years to accumulate stars. with this rating systen its definitely shawn or bret. PS i think the iron man match should be 5 stars. the overtime made it seem that much more even with them two.

    Austin is ranked pretty high on this list........ but part 2 is now pending, When Frank approves it i should be up....... The last 2 men on this list is Bret and Owen Hart and they are profiled in Part 2 and all the scores are added we will see where everyone ranks

    cant wait to read it! pretty much the only complaint i have is that you should have rated all the matches you thought were 5's as a 5 haha. cuz i think they were all 5's too. screw what everyone else thinks those matches were flawless! haha

    I agree but I didnt wanna be biased so no one complain.... I agree I underated some Bret matches.

    Is The Rock not on your list cause I remember he had many great matches including his ladder and 2 out of 3 falls match with Triple H and his backlash match with Austin. Plus his I quit match with Mankind...I realize that is only 4 matches but I know he had a hell of a few years from 97 to 99...just curious.
