I came up with this list thinking of who is the best on the mic today. After of course reading the all-time list which I'll deliver mine soon. This is the best on the mic today which includes ROH, WWE, and TNA even though TNA didn't have a wrestler to make this list. Let us drop managers(Heyman + Truth Martini), part timers (Rock + Taker), and lets talk about the young guns today who is wrestling 200+ days a year. This is just based on my opinion of who I want to hear. Who do you turn the volume up to hear speak? I'm picking on unpredictability mostly.
1.Briscoe Brothers-Correct me if I'm wrong, but has there ever been a tag team as good as them on a mic? Maybe the New Age Outlaws?
2.Kevin Steen-One could argue Steen because of unpredictability, but I went with the Briscoe Brothers.
3.CM Punk-I know people may hate on me for not having Punk higher, but his mic work seems to be more scripted now days.
4.John Cena-Whether Cena haters want to admit this, they want to hear what Cena has to say. No matter who claims they turn the channel when he appears is full of crap. They not only want to hear what he has to say, but they want to know the results of his matches. I'm not a Cena mark by any means or Cena hater, but you want to hear what Cena has to say.
5.Miz-During his championship no one was better.
6.R-Truth-unpredictable!! Comedy, rap, or whatever it may be.....you want to hear what he has to say. Very entertaining on the mic!
7.Mike Bennett-The prodigy tells us all like it is whether we want to hear it or not.
8.Cody Rhodes-Cody has gotten a lot better on the mic over the years. Couldn't stand it when he had the mic in his hands when he was with Legacy. Now when he takes shots at Big Show and so forth........you want to hear what he has to say.
9.Roderick Strong-Truth Martini helps Strong at times, but I think Strong is rather good on the mic. Elgin(partner) really isn't good at all.
10.Christian-I'm a huge Christian fan and like his mic work. I still believe he is one of the best in the biz on the mic especially as a heel.
Honorable mention: Santino-unpredictable and is funny at times.
Why no TNA wrestler? I'm a fan of TNA and watch it every week, but no wrestler really stands out where you want to hear them speak. I don't want to hear Sting or Hogan talk anymore. Roode's promos are predictable. Kennedy is annoying to me with his donkey references. Bully Ray is pretty good, but is predictable at times claiming he is going to attack the fans.Daniels/AJ fued is the most annoying fued in wrestling. Well, you could argue Show/Cena, but how many times does AJ have to help Daniels keep employment in TNA? It is annoying for him year after year have to hold Daniels up because he can't stand on his own 2 feet. Daniels is still living in 2005 in the TNA world with this AJ fued. Enough is enough!!
