It's Selection Sunday and Mark Madness has returned in its evolved, Hall of Fame form. Wrestling's finest including John Cena, The Rock, Hulk Hogan and Ric Flair will be included in a field of 64 all-time greats to be dwindled down to the single greatest wrestler of all time.
This year's bracket will span across a wide range of eras, territories and international promotions. Each timeless slice of pro wrestling utopia is represented in a fight for ultimate prestige.
The criteria used to select and seed each wrestler are as follows:
Star Power: Was the superstar a perennial headliner whose namesake sold out arenas? What was this superstar's crossover value into mainstream entertainment? What was their impact in big shows like WrestleMania?
Championships and Accomplishments: How many championships did they win? How long did they hold on to these championships? Did their championship accolades translate to multiple promotions?
Workrate: How good are/were they in the ring? Were they master ring technicians who could have a great match with the proverbial broom? Is their resume filled with wrestling classics, or did they just get by on intangibles?
Career Impact: What type of effect did their career have on future wrestlers, concepts, standards, etc?
