who is your favorite wrestler of all time?
I don't have an absolute favorite, but ones I've enjoyed over the years include The Undertaker, Mr. Perfect, Sting, Ric Flair (vintage, not the washed-up has-been he is now), and the Macho Man Randy Savage. I used to love the Ultimate Warrior until I found out how much of a turd he is in real life.
The Ultimate Warrior!!! Because he’s bat shit crazy.
Hmm. I think overall I have to go with Chris Benoit. But there are literally dozens that I really really enjoy and have called my favourtie at one point or another. Macho Man, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, Taz, Dean Malenko, Chris Jericho... just to name a few.
But Chris Benoit is just so consistant, and so good.
I don't have one favorite either: Hogan, Flair, The Rock, Sting, Benoit, Booker T, Austin, HHH, Shawn Michaels, Arn Anderson, Undertaker, Bret Hart, Owen Hart, Piper, Andre, Hot stuff Eddie Gilbert, Eddie Guerrero, RVD, Tazz, Ron Simmons, Butch Reed, Ted debiase, Rick Rude. Haku/Meng, Mick Foley, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall, DDP, Raven, JYD, Ricky Steamboat......
I haven't watched wrestling since probably 1989 or so, but when I did, it was the Macho Man Randy Savage and the Million Dollar Man Ted Dibiase.
Something tells me that my favorite wrestler is rather obvious...
However, I'll note that I'd have a substantially long list of runners up: Kurt Angle (who has the bonus of cutting great promos), Rob Van Dam, Sabu, Chris Jericho, Kennedy (he's definitely an up-and-comer), and a lot of other ECW wrestlers (Super Crazy, Little Guido, Masato Tanaka, Mikey Whipwreck, Tajiri). ECW had a substantial roster of wrestlers who were truly gifted in the ring. And Samoa Joe does appear to be as good as I had heard prior to his joining TNA...
My favorite wrestler was Hollywood Hogan from the time he started the nWo up until around the time Goldberg beat him for the Title. I think my current fav is King Booker. I love heels.
You should ... SNAP IN TO A SLIM JIM
Hey brother I'm a Hulk Hogan fan. Watcha gonna do Brother when Hulkamania runs wild on you?
I also have to add that there are several Japanese Wrestlers that, though I haven't seen a huge volume of their work, are also among my favourites. Kobashi, Misawa, Kawada, Chono, Great MUTA, Jyushin "Thunder" Liger... guys like that.
The Best There Was, The Best There Is, And The Best There Ever Will Be...
Yeah I love Bret "The Hitman" Hart. My only regret is not spending the extra $30 to take picture with him. I do have his signature which I'll cherish forever.
I also love the following:
Kurt Angle, Christ Benoit, Chris Jericho, Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, rest of Hart Foundation, Owen Hart, Goldberg (yeah I dig him so what?), RVD, Eddie Guerrero, Mike Foley, British Bulldogs, Road Warriors/Legion of Doom, Hollywood Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Piper, Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock... that's all I can think of right now.
And I hate HHH just want to make that clear. Hate.
It's a toss up between Kurt Angle and Bret Hart. Brock Lesnar would be a runner up.
Brett Hart, with Hogan and Undertaker as close 2nd and 3rd.
Current favorites include Rob Van Dam and Samoa Joe... of all time though, probably a toss up between Shawn Michaels and Chris Jericho... I miss Y2J bad.
I haven't watched wrestling since the early 80's - back then I liked Andre the Giant.
May he rest in peace.
I always thought the tendons in Randy Savage's neck were about to snap when I'd see those commercials - it came on one time when my buddy and I were stoned and I screamed, "SNAP INTO MY NECK!!!!"
I guess it was funnier when we were high.
Macho Man Randy Savage! OH YEAH!
the game triple h
I'm also in the camp of liking an ass load of wrestlers. For my top three active wrestlers, I'd have to go with Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, and AJ Styles.
