I don't watch wrestling like I used to but it sure was fun to root for certain characters.  I voted for the Undertaker - one of my favorite personas.  I like his b-grade zombie gimmick and his overall brutal style, even though he's not the greatest worker.

As far as technical move sets, etc., I'll have to go with HBK  - always liked Shawn Michaels - he had great psychology too and was a great heel.  Chris Benoit is also a good technical wrestler.

And I must say that Jake "The Snake" Roberts also had great in-ring psychology.

Yaddo, you mentioned some of the very great ones. I can tell you had a steady diet of Georgia Championship Wrestling.

The Fabulous Freebirds and Kevin Sullivan were some of my all time favorites.



How about the Masked Superstar. Truely one of my favorites and one wrestler Hulk Hogan never defeated in the WWF as far as I'm aware.

I was a fan of Mick Foley. It's been a while since I watched wrestling on tv but I remember Foley being the person I connected with the most (I was in middle school then, give me a break). He was funny, he was different, weird, and he was tough. He fought ECW, WWF, ICW and a lot more leagues in and out of the country I'm missing. He did things other wrestlers wouldn't-- couldn't do. Big falls and bumps, explosions, barbed wire and other gimmicky dangerous things. The cage match between Undertaker and Foley where he goes off the cage and through one table was huge, especially for a WWF match. It was huge for any match. He later went through the cage in the same match. He's been exploded, stabbed, crushed, poked. He wrote two very entertaining books, traveled to Africa and Japan to wrestle, became WWF commissioner and generally epitomized what a good pro wrestler should be.

I don't like wrasslin to much,but I DO like BAD movies,and SANTO and the BLUE DEMON are pretty cool. I used to watch wrasslin as a kid,and Bobo Brazil,Haystacks Calhoun,and the original Sheik were fun to watch.George(the Animal )Steele is a classic! This got me thinking of wrestlers who have gone on to make movies...Diamond Dallas Page is great in the DEVIL'S REJECTS.Though somebody should convince the Hulk to please PLEASE stick to wrestling!
Roller Derby...now THERES a show!!!!

Skaboi, found these neat matches of the Great Kabuki on Youtube.


Here he fights his son The Great Muta in Japan.

"Macho Man" Randy Savage was always my favourite growing up so I voted for him here. I like wrestling from years back, especially the late 70s-1980s far better than what they offer today if you can actually call it wrestling, Vince's "sports entertainment" phrase seems more appropriate somehow, nowadays.

Vince definately named the WWE appropriately, but I think he missed the mark. There are some people who simply hated wrestling years ago because it was "fake" and the business wouldn't acknowledge it publicly. People couldn't just enjoy it for what it was.

Now that it's admittedly "entertainment" more have become fans. We all knew that it wasn't all real back in the day. Why try to explain it to those who couldn't understand it? They have a much worst fan base now than they did back then. Even if some of the fans back then where a bit odd and on the slow side.  Smile

What was presented years back had a more believable edge. Rules, clearly defined good guys and bad guys unlike today where there are no real rules, no officials truly enforcing said rules, etc.  meaning when someone cheats, it really doesn't create the negative reaction it's intended to since the heroes cheat just as much as the villains do.

Yea, you had the "scientific" wrestlers and then you had the "rule breakers" or "good guys" and "bad guys". You had to get the good guy pretty upset to break the rules.
