It is finally done. What was supposed to be a few weeks turned into the better part of a year. But we have reached the final 10, the creme-della-creme. The best that ever was in professional wrestling. Believe me this list was not taken lightly. Each of the top ten have switched spots more than once. But at the end of the day this is the final lock. These are the ten wrestlers who honestly represent the best and the brightest. To see the rest of the list, please follow the links below.
I am sorry for the delays on this one. I do want to get the rest of this list out once I realized the popularity of the list. To move on! Let’s discuss 60-51! If would like the other parts of this list they are linked below.
The list keeps on trucking along! Check out the links below for the honorable mentions and wrestlers 100-71!
The list continues! We started with the honorable mentions, then moved on from 100-91, 90-81, and now we hit 80-71. If you would like to check out the other parts of this list, please check the links below.
This list just keeps on coming doesn’t it? Listed below are the honorable mentions as well as 100-91. So we will keep this going with the wrestler ranked 90 and through 81 and next week it will be 80-71. Enjoy!
oI am ready for the hate I am about to receive for this list. There are a number of wrestlers, both past and present, who receive WAY TOO MUCH adoration and praise from the fans for being sub par athletes, sub par on the mic, or are just plain dull. So this list is going to include 20 wrestlers and a few honorable mention who have received more praise then they deserve over the years. This is the Top 20 Most Overrated Wrestlers of All Time.
I should also state that this list will include wrestlers outside of the WWE sphere. While the primary focus is on WWE, WCW, and ECW talent due to the fact that this is a US centric list, you will also find wrestlers from NJPW, AAA, NWA, and so forth. With that said, I’m ready to prepare for the hate! Let’s get to some dishonorable mentions. Continue reading “Top 20 Most Overrated Wrestlers of All Time”
Let’s continue part 3 of the wrestling special: International Talent Better than the WWE. Today, we are going to be talking about a type of wrestling that the WWE have been slowly weeding out over the past couple of years: high flying wrestlers. Tragically, due to the high risk nature of high flying luchadores, most of the move sets synonymous with a high flying wrestler’s repertoire is banned by the WWE. This is one of the areas that I can understand. As much as I love seeing it, sometimes high flying can be a little dangerous. However, I still love watching it and will continue to do so. I just don’t fault WWE so much on why high flyers are not exactly something they want to push. This is the list of high flyers that are better than WWE talent.

So we continue this little special with the teams. Tag Team wrestling is some of my favorite wrestling. It means that you get to see cool tandems with great gimmicks who can feed off of each other’s energy. WWE has tragically never been a land of Tag Teams. Now that isn’t to say that they have made some great Tag Teams in their years. I can think of Demolition, The Rockers the New Age Outlaws, Edge & Christian, MNM, The Hardy Boyz, just to name a few. But it has always been historical that back in the days of the territory that southern promotions put an emphasis on Tag Team wrestling while northern wrestling (McMahon territory wrestling) focused much more on singles competition. Due to the fact that Vinnie Mac was the one who lead the charge to eliminate the territories and as such Tag Teams always takes the back seat. It is because of this that, with the exception of the ‘top tag team’, the division is treated much like an after thought. If you are a fan of Tag Team wrestling and are tired of watching the same wrestlers squaring off day after day with WWE, fear not because the International wrestling scene has plenty of wrestlers for you to enjoy. These are the international tag teams who are too good to ever be ruined by the WWE machine! Continue reading “International Talent Better than WWE: Tag Teams”
A few weeks ago, I posted a list that included a number of reasons why a professional wrestler should not sign with the biggest promotion in the United States, World Wrestling Entertainment. I encourage you, if you found this first, to go and read that before continuing on with this list. But basically, I am firmly behind the idea that WWE is or should be the pinnacle in which all people strive. I am critical of how they do business, how they treat their talent, and the condescending nature they take against the fans that pay money for their product.
But I do not feel that this is enough! No! For those of you out there who do not know of the alternatives available to you, I would like to start a series that highlights some of the best wrestlers who are either ‘on par with’ or ‘better than’ some WWE talent. Thus, I give you this wrestling special. Continue reading “Wrestling Special: International Talent Better than the WWE: Non-“WWE Model” Wrestlers”
