It seems that almost anyone that's been watching for 25+ years would say Hogan or Flair. I happen to be a Flair guy.
Do you go to events? I go once or twice a year, when they come to my area.
I have gone to around 5 or 6 events in my time. Some friends and I meet at a restaurant/bar and watch the PPV's on most months.
I have watched wrestling for years and I cannot argue against Flair. However I feel the Undertaker may be the greatest of all time. I think he would dominate any era.
Undertaker is a good choice. The Wrestlemania streak will never be broken. Speaking of Undertaker, I'm guessing he'll come back for Wrestlemania, then retire with the 20-0 mark.
Who do you think he'll take on?
The Undertaker may take on the person who is building up the most momentum at that point. Randy Orton is separating himself from the Pack. Although he lost to him around 6 or so years ago, he has become a much more seasoned wrestler. He can push the Taker to the limit. Also If the CM Punk Train continues, that could be possible. His cult following may demand the match.
A Triple H/Undertaker rematch makes sense but Triple H is not going to let Taker beat him twice in a row at a main event of this magnitude. Besides, I don't know if their bodies could handle another clash like that.
The Undertaker! I agree! He brings down the house..everyone loves him!
Since the outcomes in wrestling are predetermined, I'd have to go with the person(s) who played the biggest part in making wrestling what it was (late 80's to mid-90's, what it became at its peak (mid 90's to early 00's), and what it is now (early 00's-present). And that person is Hulk Hogan. I also have to credit Vince McMahon though for being equally important in making wrestling as huge as it became at one point.
Bottom line for me is that without Hogan's charisma and character throughout his career, and without Vince McMahon's transcendent impact on the business, Wrestling would not have become something that would draw pay-per view worthy appeal it started in the mid 80's and has carried on to this day; nor would it have drawn mass appeal it did with WWE-WWF/WCW in the late 90's-early 00's; nor would it still have even as much as the diminished appeal it seems to have presently. It would be entirely off the radar and perhaps have never been on the radar without Hogan or McMahon.
o hell ya stone cold!!!!!! I think if you made a top 5 that was interchangeable it would be hogan,flair,stone cold,undertaker,brett hart
Big Daddy or Giant Haystacks, both sadly no longer with us. I used to enjoy Saturday mornings watching them in the ring. Of course, it was all put on, and the outcome of the fight had been decided beforehand, but it was still fun.
A bit off topic, but I remember back in the 80's going to many AWA events at a local school gym...maybe 300 or so people in attendance. Can you imagine the WWE doing a show in a school gym these days?
Dusty Rhodes may not be the greatest of all time, but he was one of the early guys that could really light up a crowd, both in the ring and on a microphone.
Barry Windham was probaby the smoothest as far as in-ring talent goes. I wish I could see the Windham of 1986 take on Randy Orton today.
