  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.

    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. (someone that is NOT an option for the current 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.

    __________

    #1- Stone Cold Steve Austin
    #2-


    __________

    I vote for Hogan and nominate Kurt Angle.
     
  2. Voted hot rod and I nominate Kurt Angle.
     
  3. I vote for Bret and nominate Owen Hart.
     
  4. I voted HBK, I nominate Eddie again?
     
  5. Yea essentially if you want Eddie nominated you should continue to nominate him until he wins the vote. Same with the voting in the poll. I think Hulk is #1 so I'll continue voting for him until he eventually wins.
     
  6. I voted Undertaker and nominate KANE!!!!!!

  13. :win:

    Hogan is hated by so many on here, I get the feeling we will be voting for him for awhile.
     
  14. Voted for the Hearbreak kid, best entertainer in the history of wrestling.
     
  15. Who do you nominate though?

  16. This
     
  17. I seriously don't get why people's hate gets in the way of being objective and realistic.
     
  18. I suppose it depends on your definition of "greatest wrestler", most influential, definitely up there. Most charismatic? Another strong case can be presented but as the best total package, I just can't justify Hulk being there. He's under rated by many, especially in ring but he's still not up there in my humble opinion.
     
  19. You voted Piper, but Piper was only as well known as he was because he was lucky enough to feud with Hogan. Without Hogan wrestling wouldn't be what it is today.
     
  20. Which is the point I'm kind of making, we're not talking the largest influence are we? Rather who we deem to be the better performer or greatest ever, correct? Roddy was influential in creating Hogan tbh, the people loved Hulk. I'm a fan of his so can't deny it, however if Piper wasn't an epic heel would Hogan have gotten as big?
