  1. VERY NICE!

    to add to the list

    King Kong Bundy
    Arn Anderson
    George “The Animal” Steele
    The Nature Boy Rich Flair….WWWWHHOOOOO
    Does Miss Elizabeth count as a wrestler?

    This is not my top 5. I can’t limit it to a TOP 5 just the first 5 I thought of.

    I was Superfly Jimmy Snuka for Halloween last year.
    Seriously.

  3. aa!2on says:

    That is a tough top 5 list man… Though I do appreciate the time that a top 5 list saves as opposed to a top 10…
    Rowdy Roddy Piper is tha man.

  4. Giant Idiot says:

    I am sure this list could easily, easily reach 25 or more so I commend you to limiting it to 5. I will probably post about 10 times with 10 different lists.

    Ultimate Warrior
    “Ravishing” Rick Rude
    Dino Bravo
    Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart
    Tito Santana

    How about Old School Tag Teams?

    The Hart Foundation (The Excellence of Execution Brett “The Hitman” Hart and Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart)
    Demolition (Ax and Smash)
    The Bushwhackers (Luke and Butch)
    The Powers of Pain w/ Mr. Fuji (The Warlord and Barbarian)
    The Brain Busters w/ Bobby “The Brain” Heenan (Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard)

    also – we could do a managers top 5. i liked mr. fuji – i don’t even know why.

  17. vagabondrunn says:

    I love Ricky Steamboat. However, can I point out that the one thing that made him so great was his constant fued and high flying matches with Randy Savage. Some of the greatest matches to watch of all time. It was before high flying was the cool thing to do.
