5. Koko B. Ware
4. Super Fly Jimmy Snuka
3. Jake The Snake Roberts
2. Ricky The Dragon Steamboat
1. Rowdy Roddy Piper
Filed under Top 5
to add to the list
King Kong Bundy
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.
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.
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.
“Ravishing” Rick Rude
Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart
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)
You are forgetting:
Brutis the barber Beefcake
Macho Man Randy Savage
Jeff Jarrett (because I went to high school with him)
Ted DiBiase The Million Dollar Man
Great post Matt!!! I got to go…
George the Animal Steel
Jake the Snake

5. The Bushwackers
4. Superfly Jimmy Snuka
3. The Junkyard Dog (RIP JYD!! see you at the crossroads..)
2. Ricky ‘The Dragon’ Steamboat
1. The Ultimate Warrior
hogan – deserves mention – i was obsessed with him until he went to the dark side. lost all credibility to me. i cried until his reality TV show came on.
also – we could do a managers top 5. i liked mr. fuji – i don’t even know why.
I just need to know why the Junk Yard Dog didn’t make it into this list?
How about these fine grapplers?
“Big John” Stud
“Mr Wonderful” Paul Orndorff
“The British Bulldog” Davey Boy Smith
This post brought a tear to my eye.
In no particular.
Andre the Giant
The Ultimate Warrior
The Honky Tonk Man
RRP was always my favorite.
Big Boss Man
Akeem the African Dream
Greg “The Hammer” Valentine
Marty Jannetty-Always felt sorry for him after Shawn Michaels threw him through the plateglass on Brutus the Barber’s show
Abdullah The Butcher. How ’bout that.
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.
My age will show again with this one….the first match I saw in person was Johnny Valentine vs Ken Patera…I was a wee lad at the time and a neighbor took me and his grandson…I’ve been hooked ever since. But I admit it less to my 12 year old.
1. Chief Jay Strongbow
2. Wahoo McDaniel
3. Bruno Sammartino
4. Rick Martel
5. Blackjack Mulligan
