I want to take the time and share my Top 10 Wrestlers since I have been watching Wrestling. I am 27 years old and grew up watching WCW and WWF back when the Monday Night Wars were in full force. This list is purely my opinion and I welcome any comments below. I will start from Least Favorite to Favorite. This list goes by success and just plain fun/exciting to watch on tv.
10. Mick Foley- Has had one of the most unpredicted and exciting careers in Wrestling. Whether he was Cactus Jack or Dude Love or Mankind, he always put his body on the line and was awesome to watch. From his Match against Sting at Bash at the Beach in 1992 to his match against Undertaker in Hell in a Cell, he continuously gave amazing matches.
9. Chris Jericho- Some people my question why hes listed above Foley but simple fact is Jericho is a much better wrestler. He has had some classics in WCW and also in WWE and still to this day is putting over talent for the better of the company. First Unified Champion and multiple other championships he deserves his place in the Top 10 List.
8. Sting - For me its hard to put sting on the Top 10 list only because we have seen him with only so many wrestlers. Being "Only" a WCW/TNA guy its hard to put him any higher than 8 because there are so many possibilities he could have been given. He could have classics with the likes of Shawn Michaels or Undertaker or Kane. But his role in WCW has been phenominal and much of WCW's success/TNA's only success is due to him.
7. Bret Hart - The Hitman is simply just a great wrestler. Not great on the Mic but he did have some Amazing Matches. With matches against Mr. Perfect and Shawn Michaels and Stone Cold Steve Austin he was a must see Wrestler. 5 Time WWF Champion = Awesome!
6. Stone Cold Steve Austin - Out of most of these Wrestlers Stone Cold has probably the shortest career , but most exciting. He's not put higher on my list only because I don't consider him a great wrestler. Hes a Beat Your Ass down type of Wrestler. Not high Technical Moves. His memorable stuff with Vince Mcmahon and also his matches with Bret hart and The Rock are the highlights of his career. Not to mention the Championships he carried.
5. The Rock - The most Exciting person on the Mic and just as athletic as any of the above. He's not the greatest Technical Wrestler but if it weren't for him WWE would never have been the same.
4.Shawn Michaels - Shawn Michaels was just an unbelievable Athlete. He could wrestle, was good on the mic, was originally a great tag team partner. Once with Marty Janetty and then again later with Triple H. He put on Top Matches ever. Just to name a few:
Hbk vs Bret Hart - Survivor Series and Iron Man Match
Hbk vs Ric Flair - Career vs Career Match
Hbk vs Undertaker 1 & 2 - Memorable Wrestlemanias
3. Hulk Hogan - Yes folks I had to put him on the list. This is due to his success in the WWE and WCW and EVERYTHING. This man might be a coward now a days and might have some problems. But this man did put Wrestlemania on the map. He might not be the best on the Mic but he surely helped make WWE and WCW what it was. Now being his age and still trying to be active you have to respect the fact that he still to this day is still active and trying to be part of what he helped grow even bigger.
2. Undertaker - I want to so bad put Undertaker #1 but its hard to do so. Undertaker has only been in WWE. He has memorable matches and amazing story lines. His Memorable Wrestlemania matches are what makes him great. His persona is just phenominal No Pun intended. His streak will never be touched and his Wrestlemania Matches with Shawn Michaels will always be the most Memorable Matches I have ever seen. All thats left is that very anticipated showdown with #8 on my list.
1. Ric Flair - Woooooooo . His title history says it all. Not to mention he was 40 years in the business at least. His best years may have also been before the 90's but even into the 90's and 2000's he put on memorable matches. I don't think I could have put anyone else as #1 on this list.
There you have it guys, thats my top 10. Feel free to comment below and let me know what you think. Hell put your top 10 below and let the discussions begin.
