Right now, WWE may be at its all-time, in-ring peak. They're on a great run of consecutive quality pay-per-view events, lots of quality matches on free TV each week, and so on.
Out of the ring, things have improved as well: When I was putting this list together, I realized that finding definitive "worst" picks would be much harder than I expected since there are so few outright terrible talkers getting time in WWE anymore. Narrowing down the "best" list also proved more difficult than anticipated, and came down to a matter of personal preference as far as one's view of what a wrestling promo should be.
As a result, there are some notable omissions here, but it shouldn't be seen as a slight if someone like, for example, Damien Sandow, isn't on the five best list. He's great, but he's not quite serious enough yet to be the very best.
Anyway, with that in mind, let's take a look at who in WWE is always worth the promo time and who should never be allowed near a microphone.
