    Wrestling kind of sucks now havent watched in a while my picks will obviously show that.

    5. Super Fly Jimmy Snuka
    4. Owen Hart
    3. Brett the Hitman Hart
    2. three way tie, Barry "widowmaker" Windham, Rick "the model" Martel, and Chris Jericho
    1. No one else but the Nature Boy Ric Flair
    the greatest

    honorable mentions include...The Ugandan Giant, Abdullah The Butcher, Prince Akeem, Dino Bravo, Tito Santana and The Bolsheviks
    fuck Hogan...and Austin and Rock
    they just don't have the class and prestige these guys did.

    Is this on talent, or stardom? If it's wrestling talent, no way does Hulk Hogan belong up there.

    Gotta give some props to Randy "Macho Man" Savage. [img]smilies/devil.gif[/img]

    Austin is no question the greatest. If you've noticed all the wrestlers now kind of rip-off a lot of the things that Austin did. Like the way he wrestles and speaks and shit. I guess I watch to much of that crap to notice these little things.

    If we're talking "influence", I could think of a few...
    Steve Austin
    Hulk Hogan
    Ric Flair
    Bruno Sammartino
    Andre

    If we're talking "impact", I'd say...
    HH
    Andre
    Ric Flair
    Piper
    the Gobbly Gooker [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] (just kidding about that one)
    Dick the Bruiser

    If it's sheer talent (today), I'd say...
    Bret Hart
    Chris Benoit
    Chris Jericho
    Kurt Angle
    a bunch of those high flying cruiserweights

    The lists go on and on and on...
    Macho Man, Scott Hall, Kevin Nash, Sting, Mick Foley, The Rock, Triple H, Goldberg
    [img]smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img] (I guess he DOES have SOME influence), Undertaker, Kane, etc

    Here's my list (For what it's worth):

    [in no order]

    Hulk Hogan
    The icon, changed wrestling forever. Austin and the Rock may rule today, but Hogan was the first to have theme music, the first to be a crossover pop icon, the first to really turn wrestling merchandise into a multi-million dollar industry.

    Ric Flair
    Sure, he was the 14 time NWA/WCW heavyweight champion of the world, but more importantly, Ric Flair perfected the type of "in your face" mic skills that helped put the Rock over with the crowds today. He is probably the penultimate character personality in wrestling. Woo!

    Chris Benoit
    If you've seen any of his Japanese matches as Wild Pegasus (IIRC) you'd know why. He's the only gimmickless wrestler I know that is consistantly over with the fans, he probably knows more moves than any other wrestler (Bret Hart being a close second), and he's a hell of a worker.

    Gorgeous George
    Years before any of the wrestlers we know today existed or dreamt of wrestling, GG was the first to build a persona and gimmick. GG's gimmick has been copied by many many wrestlers since, including "Ravishing" Rick Rude and Marcus "Buff" Bagwell (among hundreds more).

    Shawn Michaels
    Yes he could work. Yes he had charisma dripping from his pores. But more importantly, Shawn Michaels was a "small" wrestler. These days he'd probably be a light-heavyweight. But he succeeded in proving that you didn't need to be a big man to compete with the larger wrestlers and convincingly dominate the title scene. People like Chris Benoit and Chris Jericho wouldn't be where they are in the promotion today if it wasn't for him.
