Top Ten Wrestlers Ever + Edge

I saw this in the comment section and thought I’d throw this out there for you guys.  The debate was over where Edge ranks as an all time great.  I figured this might get some people talking, so here are my (thrown together off the top of my head) top ten greatest ever.  Also I’ll throw in approximately where Edge would rank.

1. Hulk Hogan

2. Steve Austin

3. The Rock

4. Shawn Michaels

5. Ric Flair

6. Harley Race

7. Sting

8. Andre the Giant

9. John Cena

10. HHH

Edge I would put in the high teens, probably around 18-19.

Your lists?  And also that list is off the top of my head remember, so I’d likely change things on it that I had forgotten about later.

    Nice list. I’d have Austin top though, through personal preference if anything. Also, HHH would be higher in my list.

    The biggest surprise is that Taker doesn’t make it onto your list. Nice to see you keep it old school as well though with Race & Andre etc.

  2. Mando>Eddie says:

    Andre is #1 and Piper would def. make mine.

    Surprised Taker isn’t here myself.
    I personally would’ve had Flair a little higher myself but that’s just me.

    Fun thing to do…

    Tough to decide if Misawa or Eddie is my 1

    Considering Eddie is ridiculously overrated, shouldn’t be that hard. And Misawa…..eh whatever. Not a fan of puro at all.

    Bryan Reply:

    I love your reviews, but disagree with Eddie… maybe you not liking puro could have something to do with imo underrating him?

    Since I liked him in AAA/NJPW, etc.

    Also I’m forgetting Flair!

    He may be my 1.

    I’m glad btw you have Sting up there. I don’t get how he isn’t in the Observer hall of fame.

    The Vader series + Flair matches + 4 Horsemen angle + NWO angle seems like it should be enough imo.

    That would be because the WON is the most partisan, biased and absurd rater of things if you look at it carefully enough.

    This isn’t a favourites list so the top 10 ever?

    1: Austin
    2: Hogan
    3: Rock
    4: Undertaker
    5: Flair
    6: Michaels
    7: Race
    8: Sting
    9: Andre
    10: Cena

    Edge would be roughly in the early 20’s.

    No Bret Hart?

    1. Hulk Hogan
    2. Steve Austin
    3. Ric Flair
    4. Andre The Giant
    5. The Rock
    6. Shawn Michaels
    7. Bret Hart
    8. Sting
    9. The Undertaker
    10. John Cena (not a fan, but being the face of the company means something)

    Oh, forgot about Edge. I guess he would rank somewhere in the top 20, closer to 20. He held so many titles it’s nearly impossible to let him slip any further, even if I wasn’t his biggest fan.

    1. Hulk Hogan – His main period of wrestling in the 80’s-early 90’s is like The Time War in Doctor Who – it can’t be tampered with. No matter how much he tries to ruin his legacy.
    2. Steve Austin – Attitude Era. Co-Saviour of the WWE (alongside Russo)
    3. Andre The Giant
    4. Ric Flair
    5. Sting
    6. The Rock
    7. John Cena – The face of the WWE in the modern age. Can’t deny that Cena is one of the biggest draws of all time.
    8. Bret Hart
    9. Shawn Michaels – would be higher if he hadn’t ‘lost his smile’
    10. Undertaker – purely for the streak.

    Edge would make it around 15th on my list.

  8. Undertaker says:

    1. Undertaker
    2. Bret Hart
    3. Hulk Hogan
    4. Shawn Michaels
    5. The Rock
    6. Stone Cold Steve Austin
    7. HHH
    9. Chris Benoit
    10. Ric Flair

    the list cant be complete without the phenom and he deserves the number 1 position.
