Greats of The Game

1. Ric Flair: Flair has won the Heavyweight championship 16 total times, six times with the WCW. The Nature boy is the first ever WCW Champion and he was a head of the famous wrestling bad boys known as The Four Horseman. He has feuds with some of wrestlings best including: Sting, Terry Funk, Lex Luger, Hulk Hogan and Ricky Steamboat. Flair was the master of the Figure Four leg lock. Flair has took on all comers, fought all over and he has seen and done it all in the squared circle and he has fought in other organizations as well.

2. Sting: The Stinger is a 15 time heavyweight wrestling champion who wore face paint and was known to enter the arena from the ceiling rafters. Sting has won tag team titles, heavyweight titles and he even won a battle Royal. He had a nemesis at every turn including: Ric Flair, The Giant, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Hollywood Hogan. Sting took on all comers and he really connected with the fans.

3. Goldberg: He has the longest undefeated streak in wrestling history with 173 victories before losing to Kevin Nash in a match that Scott Hall interfered in. His finisher was the Jack Hammer, which is a vertical suplex that turns to a power slam. He won the WWE and the WCW heavyweight championship and he fought all comers.

4. Scott Steiner: Big Poppa Pump had major success with his brother Rick with the Steiner Brothers tag team but his solo achievements were many as well. He also won the WCW world heavyweight title and his finishing move was the Steiner Recliner, which was somewhat of a standing Camel clutch hold. He was also a member of the NWO.

5. Hollywood Hogan: Hohan won the WCW Heavyweight Championship six times and he was the heel or bad guy for most of his tenure here. His main finishing move is the running leg drop which has accounted for most of his biggest wins. He was the leader of the New World Order wrestling gang. Terry "Hulk" Hogan is an entertainer and he is gonna be popular even past his prime at any wrestling organization.

6. The Giant: The Giant won the WCW Heavyweight Championship twice while he was at World Championship Wrestling. Also, he won the WCW tag team title three times. The Giant had long standing feuds with Hulk Hogan, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Lex Luger. The Giant or Big Show at WWE, had several signature moves but, his main finisher is the Choke slam. The Giant is nearly 7 feet 2 inches tall.

7. Kevin Nash: Nash has won the WCW Heavyweight Championship 5 times which is a great accomplishment. Nash is 6 ft. 11 inches tall and was the leader of the NWO Red and black. Nash was also a 9 time WCW World Heavyweight Champion and he plays heel and good guy back and forth. That hurts his standing because he is wishie washie, as they say. His top finisher was the Jack Knife Power Bomb.

8. Bret Hart: Hart won the WCW Heavyweight Crown two times. Known for being a good guy who gave his sunglasses away to fans and also he was known for being a cocky, bad guy. He is the only wrestler to have held wrestling titles over the course of five decades. Hart had long standing feuds with Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Sting, Golfberg and many others. The Hit man is one of the top technical wrestlers of all time and he started as a kid learning with his family who were all involved.

9. Curt Hennig: Mr. Perfect was a former United States WCW Heavyweight Champion. But it was not belts that made him special. Curt had great athletic moves that were done to near perfection. His defenses of that title included wins over: Chris Benoit, Ric Flair, Lex Lugar, Diamond Dallas Page(twice), Jeff Jarrett and The Giant (Big Show). His finishing move was the HennigPlex, which is a fast cradle Suplex. Hennig was one of my favorites because he had true skills and did most things to near perfection.

10. Diamond Dallas Page: In the WCW organization he was a three time world champion, four time tag team champion and a former U.S. Champion as well. His finishing moves actually varied in it's ending but the most common one was The Diamond Cutter. A good and bad guy, usually bad, Page fought in tag team and singles bouts and had a strong fan base.

Bret "The Hitman" Hart

When Bret Hart put an opponent in the Sharpshooter the match was usually over. He called himself The Excellence of Execution and it showed I I excellent ring technique.

Goldberg Career Highlights

Goldberg Was Devastating

Goldberg used a deadly spear to set up his finishing move which was a hybrid duplex and power slam. He came to the ring with flames and smoke and he looked scary. Sometimes he dominated and ended his bouts with ease but even when he was taking a beating he usually came back to win in dramatic fashion.
