I'll be honest... I never got the love for Cactus Jack or Mankind or Mick Foley whatever you wanna call him. I never thought he was exciting to watch, and I never cared much for hardcore wrestling.

Fuckin Nash had those awful knees that meant he sideswiped you with his thigh instead of any kind of realistic knee . And he did it over and over. He had about 4 moves, 3 more than Hogan.

Oh, so wrong. Impeccable ring psychology, fantastic appearances, rockstar mic work, amazing reinventions and the promos are as good as it gets. But different strokes for different folks.

Ric Flair has always bored the piss out of me. I know that I'm SUPPOSED to like the guy but he has never, ever done it for me.

Ultimate Warrior is the most overated wrestler of All time. He didnt have one good match his entire run and his Promos were just wierd yet he thought he was being clever. I get that he drew money with Hogan, but then again Hogan drew money with anyone.

Number Two would be Andre The Giant..I mean come on name a good Andre match. He was terrible and held onto the ropes swating at guys. If Andre was around today everyone would shit on him like they do Kahli.

Number 3 is Goldberg..3 move set and matches that lasted under 3 minutes..when he did go longer it showed he couldnt hang by Hurting wrestlers and Never Sold to anyone.

Number 4 goes to All the Old legends like Lou Thez and the Vern Gagna types...40 minute matches and 39 minutes of Headlocks and punches...Maybe the most Boring shit that you'll ever watch.

Rob Van Dam - As has been discussed before in this sub-forum, RVD is an amazing pure athlete who had a lot of things going for him on the in-ring side of these. Unfortunately, storytelling was never one of those things and psychology rarely showed up in his matches. However, it's the out-of-ring side of things in which Rob suffered the most. Most of the time, his character was very flat. There were occasional signs of passion (as we saw during Rob's shoot promo at the first ECW: One Night Stand in 2005), but they were few and far between.

I don't think anybody rates the top 3 high at all
Almost everyone agrees none could "wrestle"

I expect a Jericho (overrated) mention soon

The only great match Goldberg ever had was with Diamond Dallas Page. We all know that Goldberg wasn't the reason that match was good and that is one of the reasons I put DDP on the other list -- the good list.

Rey Mysterio. I really don't like the luchadores and there's no believable way he wins against some of the big guys he's faced.

I can't believe I forgot to include him on my list. He's one of my least favorite performers. Between his moves that are unrealistic even by pro wrestling standards and the way he always looks shocked when his opponent lands in perfect position for the 619 (another thing that bothers me is that his signature move involves every opponent always landing in the ropes in a very specific way every match), he just makes me want to punch him. But then he'd lightly touch my hand and I'd wind up doing a corkscrew flip onto my back before bouncing up and landing with my arms draped over the 2nd rope, so maybe that's not such a great idea.

  • Hulk Hogan - 2002-2003 WWF return (at the very least). His match with the Rock at WrestleMania X8 is enjoyable as fuck, but that was because of the hot crowd. The wrestling in that match sucked balls. Obviously not the Rock's fault. He carried Hogan as best he could.
  • Ric Flair - As a promo man, I think he sucks.
  • Bret Hart - He was obviously a phenomenal wrestler, but he lacked personality and his mic work was merely decent.

  • Randy Orton - Boredom personified. That dead-eyed "I shit my pants" look of his is the fucking worst.
  • Batitsta - I've never seen a nobody do so much. He's a typical WWE muscle-hack (much like Ryback, only Batista had much more personality).
  • Ric Flair (again) - I mentioned Ric earlier because of his awful promos. This time, I'm mentioning him because of his supposed looker room leadership. Anyone who knows the "Plane Ride from Hell" story knows what kind of leader Ric is and the example he sets for younger talent as far as out-of-ring conduct goes. He's a drunk and a deadbeat. He was also a terrible booker.
  • Umaga - I only include him because I hated the gimmick and finisher he was using when wrestling under this name. I really liked his work and look when he was Jamal of 3 Minute Warning.
  • The Steiner Brothers - Scott's WWE debut at Survivor Series 2002 was the only thing he's done in the business that I gave a shit about. Rick doesn't even have that.
