        Hard to argue with that one.   

        I loved the fued with Harley Race and Ric Flair.  I was just a young kid, but that's what got me going into wrestling.

      For me, when I started watching Pro Wrestling it was quite interesting and after that it became pretty much boring. My vote goes for 'Shawn Michaels'

      Cena was much better portrayed and liked when he broke into the wrestling firm as a heel back in 2002, known as, 'The Doctor of Thuganmics' wink

    For me, Ric Flair is the best ever.  Hulk Hogan drew more money, Sammartino had a longer, uninterupted streak, and Shawn Michaels is "cuter" but nobody was better.

        If I remember right, he was a part time wrestler and was a real-life elementary school principal.

    Hulk Hogan represented the good guy attitude and was always drawing in more money than  handful of other wrestlers on the roster.

    Ric Flair is the only legend of his kind that really went toe to toe against anybody during his prime.

    Stone Cold Steve Austin was originally build as a technical wrestler before his neck injury, shot knee joints, and back problems, but he was the biggest bad boy who reinvented much of his character apart from what was said on paper.

    The Rock; if there was ever a guy that only be descibed in one word, being 'charisma', that would be 'the Great One' because he was a guy that could make you hate at the same time you couldn't help but love him because of all of his catch phrases and gimmicks and also that wild sense of humour.

    Triple H is a villain like none other and he got to the point of being appreciated as a villain which changed the landscape of the WWE concept of Hero/Villain where fans started to like the villain more because they thought that type of character was cool and appealing.

    Shawn Micheals; what is there that you can't like about him, having done everything from winning titles, main eventing several PPVs, Mr. Wrestlemania, the guy that trained young amateur wrestlers, and also the best in the business alongside best friend/counter part Triple H.

    Brock Lesnar is the final wrestler I'll mention being that he has been praised by everyone from a professional stand point to the other wrestlers he worked with and thats simply that he was the only of kind born with the raw edges of a perfect wrestler from size to build and also personality on live television and was easy for him to adapt to.

    My pick is none of the above because I think there is someone else that deserves this:


    http://s1.hubimg.com/u/5841856_f248.jpg


    He did everything to the point where the next time he get severly hurt in the spine, he's either permnantly paralyzed or even death. He's considered a future Hall of Hamer in the WWE and also there is no better way for him to retire than as a World Heavy Weight Champion after Wrestlemania, which wasn't even planned because he was informed of immediately being forced to retire after Wrestlemania on the next few days where he did a physical. Great true story! smile

          Yes. I've met her here in Toronto. I was passing by Richmond Hill where she opened her Yoga Studio. She is so hot!

      She looks really intelligent. I think it's important to see what people look like without their clothes on.

    Depends what you mean by greatest.

    For genuine wrestling it's old timer, maybe Thesz, Sammartino, Ed Lewis or Gotch. Though Antonio Inoki deserves a mention as well.

    For "showmanship" you'd have Rogers, Flair, Hogan, Sting, Michaels and a few others.

    For a combination between the two probably Flair.

    This brings me back when I used to love to watch wrestling on Channel 9.  Well, I would say my choice is Hulk Hogan!  He was the man and the max.

    The Undertaker is the greatest pro-wrestler of all time by far. He has theatrical visuals and audio like no other, an epic theme, indestructible persona, incredible ring psychology, powerful moves, intimidating presence, almost everything a wrestler should have. He's been in the most classic and brutal matches in WWF/WWE history. He is a legend forever in pro-wrestling.

    Piper greatest because he stared in a movie called
    :They Live:  Something meaningful.
    The producer was a real pro wrestler.

    Worst
    Randy Savage. He wore a cap with Twin Towers on it. With a speech about how he was going to destory Hulk. The speak was very much on how the Twin Towers exploided explosion, two years before it really happen.

    Plus the wrestling federation back then was under the title. One World Order.
