The Wrestling world has hear some of the greatest calls and that is what makes wrestling what it is.
If you watch some of the greatest moments in wrestling you're sure to find a voice behind it.
Who will be in and will be left out. Do you agree with it.
Honorable Mention: Mike Tenay, Jerry "The King" Lawler, and Lillan Garica
10. Bobby "The Brain" Hennan
The man they call "The Wisel" is just breaking in because he was more of a funny announcer but knew what he was talking about. He has been a announcer for both WCW and WWE and left his mark on the mic.

The Chairman of the WWE at one time announced for his own company and did a great job at it. Vince McMahon called one of the greatest matches in WrestleMania when Shawn Michaels beat Bret Hart and you heard Vince McMahon say "The boyhood dream, has come true". Vince McMahon is a great talker and he proved it at the announcing table.

"Oh My God", has been made famous by one man the one and only Joey Freakin' Styles. He has been there since day one with ECW and is the voice of Extreme and always will be.

The voice of World Class Championship Wrestling is seventh and for good reason and that was because he is one of the best voices in wrestling history.

4. Gary Michael Cappetta
He was dubbed "The World's Most Dangerous Announcer" and in the NWA he is well known. He is the one of the greatest voices in wrestling history.

Mean Woooooooooooooooo Gene, the man with a voice that is well known by everything about the business showed he can talk and make the superstars look so good after the interview and made the superstar belivable.
One of the greatest of all time has been at the top of his game and made a good little run in the ring with his close friend Hulk Hogan.
2. Gordon Solie
Gordon Solie is possibly the most recognized voice from the days of "classic wrestling" and "Dean" of wrestling announcers".
They say that he is the best because he was so good and you could feel what as going on in the ring, he was an amzing man with an amazing voice and he was the the man with the golden mic to go with the golden voice.
Gordon Solie will be remebered as one ofthe greatest and agrubly the best ever.

Good Old JR, he is truley a wrestling fan doing what a wrestling fan do if he couldn't wrestle and that was speak of what they were doing.
Jim Ross is one of the greatest talkers on th mic and is the greatest even though he doesn't think so.
JR to me will be remebered to many as the greatest, the best, and the one and only can't find no one like him Jim Ross.
