  1. We are going to try this again. I attempted to do this a while back but people can't follow two simple rules and it went awry. Here's what's going on. 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.

    Just like last time, I am limiting this to wrestlers of what I will call the 'Wrestlemania era". Most of us are in our teens/early 20s, and so arguing about guys clearly before our time is pointless. And while '85 is still probably a little bit before a lot of our times, I'm sure most of us have seen Wrestlemania 1 on DVD and things like that. Oh and North American wrestlers only before anyone nominates someone from a Japanese org.

    I'm not going to lay out a specific guidelines for what you should think makes a wrestler an all time great, but I will share with you the criteria I'll be using. I will take into consideration how iconic a wrestler is, lasting impact that they had on wrestling, the number of memorable matches and segments they had, and also their actual ability ala in ring skills, charisma, mic ability, ect.

    Now for the two rules:

    1.) You must post who you voted for in the thread.
    2.) You MUST nominate another wrestler for the next poll.

    ***If you do not follow these two incredibly simple rules, your vote will not be counted.***

    Now, for example, here is my vote for the first poll:

    I vote for Hulk Hogan, and nominate Kurt Angle.

    ^It's as simple as that.


    Now vote, nominate, and let's not fail at this twice please.


    I'm trying to come up with the right number of votes to declare a winner.. obviously we don't have a huge group of users yet, but I don't want the polls to go by too quick.. I'll say the first wrestler to 8 votes wins, or whoever is in the lead after 48 hours pass.

  2. I vote for the heartbreak kid, Shawn Michaels.

    I nominate Macho Man Randy Savage.
  3. Savage is already going to be in the next poll. You nominate someone to be included in the poll that isn't an option at this point.

    Sorry if I failed to make that clear in the original post.
  4. Partly me to blame then as well. Didn't see the poll since it hadn't fully loaded = Didn't see all the names. I nominate André the Giant instead.
  5. Voting Undertaker, unselfish guy who was able to drag Heidenreich to a good match.

    I nominate Chris Benoit, or at least the wrestler.
  6. Voted Flair and I nominate Roddy Piper.
  7. Voted SCSA, the beertrucks and random stunners is how i look back on my childhood wrestling experience, Macho was my #2.

    I nominate THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR for next time. Whoever voted for Hulk is going down. HOKE OGAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  8. Voted for "The Immortal" Hulk Hogan, and nominate Lou Thesz.
  9. I voted for Stone Cold Steve Austin and nominate Eddie Guerrero.
  10. I voted HBK and nominate Rowdy Roddy Piper.
    But damn :booker: is a close second.
  11. post- 1985 Lou Thesz? I can't imagine him being all that great at age 60


    For #1:
    Hogan- 2
    HBK- 2
    Austin- 2
    Flair- 1
    Taker- 1

    Piper- 2
    Andre- 1
    Benoit- 1
    Angle- 1
    Warrior- 1
    Eddie- 1
  12. I voted for the one who's 20-0 at Wrestlemania. And I nominate Owen James Hart
  13. I voted for Austin and nominate Kane
  14. I voted for HBK and nominate Roddy Piper.
  15. I see your point here. Then I nominate Ricky Steamboat.

  16. Testify = boss.
  17. Snap.

    Do I have to think of another? If so I nominate Daniel Bryan. Controversial I know but best wrestler in the world for like 6 years or something plus a good mic worker, and a interesting character has to have him up there.
  18. Who did you vote for in the poll?

    And no, someone nominating a wrestler doesn't mean you can't nominate them. On the contrary, you should still definitely nominate who you think is the most worthy. Whoever gets the most nominations is going into the next poll. Right now Piper has 2 votes and everyone else has one, so atm Piper would be added.
  19. Ahh I see. Well I voted for SCSA and I am nominating Eddie Guerrero then.
