    Nobody will want to say Austin, but he's definitely one of the best if not THE best. He may not have had 450 splashes and shooting star presses, but he had crazy charisma and exciting matches.

    Bret's up there. His flaw is that he was never the greatest on the mic, but he usually got his point across. Was an underrated heel. Had good, realistic, creative matches.

    Flair was okay. Charismatic, but he always had the same match. ALWAYS. But it worked for him I guess.

    HBK was pretty good. Problem was that he only recently learned how to put people over. That, and he was never too great on the mic.

    lol... sting?

    People seem to like him I guess, but he was never really too good at anything. An average worker at best, and he sucks on the mic. He was the coolest guy ever in wrestling until he started wrestling and talking again. That says a lot.

    I agree with Mac about Austin and Bret. I think HBK is better on the mic than you give credit though. Angle had great potential but he went to nutty. Never was a big fan of Flair wrestling. Loved his mic work but not to big on see the same match from him over and over again, especially that stupid flop of his. I think Eddie had great potential on being the greatest. I was always a big fan of his.

    I was actually thinking Eddie as well. Problem is that I think he was still coming full circle when he died. Also an underrated heel. But then again WWE crowds can never be pleased with quality.

    Exactly. I think Eddie had great potential even though he was part of wrestling for awhile. His death put an end to great momentum to being considered in the discussion. Always something came up for him. The drugs and ultimately his death. Damn shame.

    I always though Jericho could be in discussion one day, but for some reason there is always something that limits him for me. He is entertaining, but I get bored with him alot, than he is entertaining, than boring again. Maybe it is just me.

    I think right now is the most interesting he's been in years. I slapped my forehead in disgust when I saw that lame title match skit after he returned.

    Yeah, he is finally getting some good opportunities. They do under utilize him at times.
