1. Shawn Michaels (imo the greatest of all time)
2. Brett Hart
3. Macho Man (Was a huge fan of his when I was younger)
4. The Undertaker
5. Stone Cold
6. CM Punk
7. British Bulldog (Don't know why. Yeah, I know he wasn't great in-ring. But I used to love the running powerslam move. Thought it was the coolest finisher at the time)
8. Jericho
9. HHH
10. Shane Mcmahon (Don't care what anyone says about this. The guy was fantastic during the attitude era. He did things that I had never seen before on tv. Falling off the titantron, elbows off the top rope through announce tables, etc etc. I just really liked that the son of Vince would go out there and earn his stripes like that. Much respect)

Those were the days! Kanyon was a fave of mine during that run, and I always like the Mortis gimmick. Too bad he didn't have a longer career in the spotlight.

You do know that Ambrose wrestled as Jon Moxley on the indies for years. I knew him well before his time in the "big leagues." I do agree if CPrice is basing this off WWE only, that's a little crazy.

Saw my first show when I was 6 in 1993, but I've watched pretty much any big event from '85 onwards. WWF, AWA, WCW, NWA, TNA, ROH, plus a lot other indies and Japan stuff. It's going to incredibly difficult to limit myself to 10 guys.

1. Christian
2. Alex Wright
3. Mr. Perfect
4. Ken Shamrock
5. Jimmy Rave
6. Owen Hart
7. Marty Jannety
8. Bret Hart
9. Christopher Daniels
10. Chris Jericho

HM: Rick Martel, Shawn Michaels, Alex Shelley.

* Chris Benoit would be on the list and while I still enjoy his matches, it always reminds of the ****** situation, so I try to leave it out.

* The Hurricane and Doink the Clown were close, but after their original runs, they got pretty lame. Hurricane was great up until he started teaming with Rosey, while Doink was absolutely incredible up until his face turn.

I liked the S.H.I.T stuff.

Didn't Hurricane come back a few years ago on ECW? I wasn't really watching at the time but I think I seen that. Was he/it terrible then?

Parents got me watching when I was about 2 in the mid-80s. To be fair I probably didn't really understand it until I was about 4 or 5 so I'll say from '88 to '07 when I stopped watching for about 3 years.

In no particular order:

1) Bret Hart
2) Chris Benoit
3) Raven
4) Christopher Daniels
5) Nigel McGuinness
6) Owen Hart
7) Rhyno
8) Bryan Danielson
9) Kane
10) Chris Jericho

HM: CM Punk, RVD, Samoa Joe, Edge, SCSA, James Gibson (Jamie Noble), Mickie James, Bubba Ray Dudley, Jerry Lynn, Kurt Angle

Hardcore Holly & AJ Styles used to be in my list but both of them turned out to be utter ********** in real life. Plus it is hard for people to take you seriously when sparkplug bob holly is in your top 10.

Great topic, these are fun to read. Id like to hear someones list who is from the Bruno Sammartino era.

I started watching when I was a little kid in the 60s. In Chicago we had Bob Luce Wrestling and Dick the Bruiser was the man, he was the Stone Cold Steve Austin of his era. To this day, he is still my favorite as are most of the wrestlers from that era.

Top 10:
1.Dick The Bruiser (and as a tag team with his cousin The Crusher)
2.The Road Warriors
3.Superstar Billy Graham
4.Ox Baker
5.Andre The Giant
6.CM Punk
7.The Rock
8.Yukon Mooose Cholak (often described as The Midwest's version of Gorilla Monsoon)
9.Jessee The Body Ventura
10.Big John Studd - He was great, was always angry he cracked me up

Just missed:
Rikishi
Bobo Brazil
King Kong Bundy
Baron Von Raschke
Black Jack Mulligan/Lanza
Sailor Art Thomas
Ivan Putski
Mr Fuji (had great rapport w Mean Gene Okerlund as the announcer back in Bob Luce wrestling, you could tell they were friends off the air)
-----Mean Gene: Fuji, you are a sick man.
-----Mr Fuji: Thank you

Bobby Heenan & Mean Gene were the same, Heenan started off as a wrestler in Bob Luce wrestling, you could tell Gene & Heenan tipped a few cocktails on the road together.

I started watching in 1995 when I was 2. Wrestling has always been important in my family. My Great-great Uncle was Laurent "Larry" Moquin, a popular Canadian wrestler in the 50's. In fact, he once wrestled Lou Thesz to a draw after 1.5 hours! He also wrestled Maurice Vachon (before he was Mad Dog) and Gorgeous George. His tag partner was Yvon Robert!

1) Davey Boy Smith... and this will never ever change.
2) The Road Warriors... not because of how good they were, but the paint/spikes.
3) The Patriot... nothing to say about this.
4) Raven... brilliant mind inside the ring, loved the eerie persona. New age version of Jake Roberts?
5) The Undertaker... quite possibly the greatest gimmick ever, 23 years strong.
6) Jeff Hardy... always exciting, hard worker, too bad he got mixed up with drugs.
7) Shane McMahon... had some of the best matches i've ever seen, too bad he's only known for being the boss' son.
8) Kane... another strong gimmick, someone let this man win a Rumble already.
9) Essa Rios/Mr. Įguila... high flying at quite possibly its best.
10) Ultimo Dragon... same as Essa.

HM: Taka Michinoku, Too Cool, Godfather, CM Punk.

Well that's pretty interesting! I'm sure there are some great stories there to be told. Do you know or recall any?

I started watching in the late 80s. I have odd tastes when it comes to favorite wrestlers. I'm certain nobody would have a similar list.

1) Mr. Perfect (When he would get pushed into the corner, spit out his gum and slap it out of the air... Tremendous stuff.)
2) The Repo Man (Amazing gimmick. Unfortunately underused.)
3) Big Boss Man (That slide out of the rink uppercut, amazing move.)
4) The Beverley Brothers (I am not separating them as it is the teamwork which makes them so enjoyable.)
5) Sabu (I love hardcore stuff. Huge ECW fan. Sabu really put himself on the line.)
6) Steven Regal (Real man's man gimmick only.)
7) Shawn Michaels (Loved HBK as a kid.)
8) Austin Aries (My current favorite.)
9) Tommy Dreamer (Again, my love for ECW.)
10) Owen Hart (Only as "The Nugget".)

Sadly no. He passed away 5 years before I was born, and my Grandfather passed a few years after him, so I never got to meet either or learn any stories. I plan on asking my Grandmother on that side, as well as my father, if they know anything about him.

What i've gathered from online research is that he was the no.2 face (Yvon Robert was 1st).. He went by the name "Handsome" Larry Moquin.. Along with the already mentioned wrestlers, he fought Killer Kowalski, Arnold Skaaland, and The Sheik (at MSG!). He was the NWA Hawaii Heavyweight Champion in 1954 from May to July.. He retired in 1967 and worked as a salesman for Victoriaville Hockey Sticks. While wrestling he ran the Hotel Larry Moquin in Ste. Anne de Bellevue, Quebec until fire destroyed it in 1964. His overall record was 271-133-197 (w-d-l), and to me one of the coolest things is that in 1954-55 Parkhurst made a wrestling trading-card of him. I've been trying to find one, they go for about $4 on eBay.. Id pay more than that though, as the sentimental value makes it near priceless to me.

"A 225 pounder, handsome Larry stands nearly six feet and is one of the most agile, acrobatic boys in the game."

1. Rowdy Roddy Piper
2. Rick Flair
3. Arn Anderson (the original Pipe Bomb dropper)
4. Andre The Giant
5. Randy Savage (Heel only)
6. Road Warriors
7. Hart Foundation
8. Kevin Sullivan (seemed legitimately wacked out)
9. CM Punk
10. Undertaker (early era, with Paul Bearer)


I started watching around 1983, when I was about 14. I disliked the faces, because you were supposed to root for them. I have seen each of these guys at live events, and remember those experiences as some of the best times I ever had. Heel lover for life!
