  1. This is going to be a series of polls to determine the consensus greatest wrestlers of all time according to the posters on this board.

    Disclaimer; by all time, I am actually going to limit things to 1985 on, or what could be viewed as the 'Wrestlemania Era' because let's face it, there is no use in a bunch of 20 somethings/teenagers debating if Bruno Samartino or Bob Backlund were better than The Rock or Bret Hart. While most of us probably don't remember many things from the 80s, we have all seen Wrestlemania 1 on DVD.

    The first man to 10 votes will win the ranking. For the vote to count, you must make a post stating who you voted for, and also say who you think should be added to the next poll that was not included in this one.

    Now, there are a lot of things that go into making someone great, but I'm not going to lay any specific guide lines for what you should vote on, it's simply your personal opinion. Me personally, I will take into account how iconic a wrestler was, lasting impact, memorable matches & segments, and things of this nature.

    I vote Hulk Hogan and nominate Kurt Angle

    Also if you think the #1 GOAT isn't in my original list, tough shit, vote for someone who is and nominate them for the next poll
  2. I voted for Steve Austin, the greatest of all time. I nominate Chris Jericho
  3. Voted for Stone Cold Steve Austin, reasons include his gimmick being revolutionary amongst mainstream wrestling, some excellent promos and some matches were amazing, especially his matches with Bret. His impact was huge. Nomination is Roddy Piper.
  4. I know reading is hard, so let me remind you:

    • Like Like x 1
  5. LIKED! For the huge ass explanation, haha.

    Voted for Hulk Hogan, and I'm nominating The Game, The Cerebral Assassin, Hunter Hearst Helmsley, Paul Levesque aka
  6. Vote tally:


    Jonathan's vote is in limbo
  7. I separate Western and Japanese wrestling, they are two different entities.

    In "western" wrestling culture, Ric Flair is the GOAT, he's simply the best at anything he did: matches, performances, showmanship, promos, entertainment value, you name it. He's a true wrestling god.

    The greatest and best Japanese wrestler of all time is Mitsuharu Misawa.
  8. Let's keep it relevant. Nobody cares about Japanese wrestling :pity:

    Nominate someone for the next poll or suffer the same fate as Jonathan

    oh and for the record SPOILER Flair is my #2
  9. Not a fan of Japan(ese Wrestling) either.
  10. To all the haters of Puro
    Not seen a great amount but what I've seen has been stupidly enjoyable.
  11. I was kidding about nobody liking Japanese wrestling, I love watching matches of guys who go over to Japan, but it's pointless to bring it up in this discussion
  12. I never said I hated it, I just don't like that stuff..
  13. I wasn't being serious lol....
  14. I'm a Puro fan first, then come American Indies. Puroresu is so better than Western pro wrestling, it's not even debatable. But I'm not going to bother you with that.

    I nominate Sting.
  15. Is this not strictly WWE wrestlers or?

    Obviously Kurt is in TNA but he's known more for his WWE career.
  16. I don't see any reason why we should have to leave Sting and AJ Styles out
  17. Shut up, Dolph's Ziggles.

    You went mad when I mentioned MISAWA (aka Jesus). You bad person. :bury:
  18. Asians dont have the face expressions that fit wrestling.
  19. I lol'd at that post.

    For some reason I can hardly ever see the images you post -.-
