Top 5 Wrestlers Of All Time (IMO)
Hello everyone, this is Svyato. I have noticed that it has become a trend that people are making lists with their top 10 or top 100 or top 5 wrestlers of all time or whatever. Well it's my turn.
I'm going to make my own list of the top 5 superstars in WWE history. Lucky for you that means no Cena, Hogan, or any other crap superstar like that. Only the best. Enjoy the read!
5. Stone Cold Steve Austin
If you have a list of best wrestlers of all time you are obviously gonna have Ston Cold Steve Austin. The man raises hell wherever he goes and then leaves. He has amazing mic skills, he's great in the ring, and he's the toughest SOB this world has ever seen.
Stone Cold Steve Austin has been a part of some great wrestlemania matches. There was that great Wrestlemania 13 clash between him and Bret Hart. The was also Stone Cold Steve Austin Vs Hulk Hogan, wtih Stone Cold obviously carrying that match. He also participated as referee in the Battle of the Billionares. Stone Cold is the man.
He would always go around hitting that Stone Cold Stunner on who ever he wanted. From Vince McMahon, to Stephanie McMahon, to Undertaker, to everyone else. The man brought excitement wherever he went.
Recently Ston Cold Steve Austin was inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame. We all heard Vince McMahon say that Stone Cold was one of the best of all time and he truly is. I also loved that part about the love-hate relationship between him and the man(smirks). Moving on.
Basically Stone Cold was great, maybe even the greatest, but in my list he's No. 5. And that's the bottom line because Stone Cold said so.

4. The Undertaker
The Dead has risen and it's risen right onto this list. The Deadman, The Undertaker is without a doubt one of the greatest wrestlers in all of sports entertainment.
Nobody who is a fan of the WWE can honestly say that The Deadman does not belong here. No true fan at least. The Undertaker has been here for quite some time. Whether we are talking about the Badass days, Deadman, or anything he was there. He has excited us for quite some time and personally I thank him.
Obviously the most well known thing about the Undertaker is his 17-0 streak at Wrestlemania. He has had some spectacles there that we will never forget. Whether it's the recent Wrestlemania 25 match against Shawn Michaels, or the Wrestlemania match agains Jimmy Superfly Snuka, the two clashes with Kane were also something to behold. He even made Batista look good in that amazing Wrestlemania 23 match. Bottom line is when it comes to Wrestlemania he will put on a great show for you.
Despite his age the Undertaker is still going strong with his wrestling ability today. He has the in ring talent, he has those creepy Deadman mic skills, that in ring charisma, he's got it all. The Undertaker is the total package.
So Undertaker is at No. 4 and if you don't like it you can, Rest In Peace!

3. Chris Jericho
As many list as I have seen I have been disgusted by how Chris Jericho is being put so far back. I mean can't anyone recognize talent anymore. If you can't than take a good look because it's right in the picture.
Chris Jericho is without a doubt in my mind one of greatest wrestlers of all time. He can play the role of a good heel or a good face. He is hilarious as Y2J and he is hated as the short man in a suit.
Also he has gotta be up there for best technical wrestlers of all time. The man just does it to perfection. The Slammy Award winning wrestler is truly a reason to watch wrestling. Even when tha excuse for a show, Raw is on I still tune in just to see an amazing match from Chris Jericho.
And I'm sure no one will forget that he is also the first ever Undisputed Champion. I mean how could you forget when Chris reminds us all the time?
Right now Chris is being forced to make the Big Show look good in the tag division, but come 2010 we will see him ditch that untalented excuse for a wrestler and move on to a possible feud of the year with Edge! Now that's wrestling!
So Chris Jericho is our No. 3 and there is nothing all you parasites and hypocrites can do about it.
Times World Champion: 5 reigns
2. Shawn "HBK" Michaels
Are you ready for the Showstopper himself, HBK? Well if you are not sucks to be you. Whenever the topic of greatest wrestler in the WWE comes up you always know someone is going to mention Shawn Michaels. The man is a wrestling legend.
Mr. Wrestlemania knows how to get the fans out of there seats. He has had some epic clashes in the past and present. With the best ones being at Mania of course. Here are some you might remember, WM 12 HBK Vs Bret Hart, WM 25 Undertaker(as previously mentioned), WM 21 Kurt Angle. Those matches ring a bell? I'm sure they did.
No one in this universe can deny Shawn Michaels' greatness when it comes to wrestling. Well technically you can, but you had to have been dropped on your head if you say the man can't wrestle. HBK can make even the worst of wrestlers look good. He can put on instant classics. Whoops kinda took Christian's thing there, but hey Christian can't wrestle anyway so he won't mind.
Basically Shawn is wrestling at it's best, he is in a league of his own, he is wrestling before your eyes, but he is also No. 2.
Times World Champion: 4 reigns
1. Bret Hart
The best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be is the signature phrase for our No. 1 superstar and it couldn't be more correct. Bret Hart is without a doubt in my mind the best wrestler there was, the best is up to today, and the best there ever will be.
He is without a doubt one of the best technical wrestlers in WWE history. Despite some people calling him a crybaby you can't ignore the wrestling talent he has. He is wrestling sent from above.
I'm sure everyone remembers the Iron Man Match at WM 12 vs HBK. Another memorable match is the one Vs Austin at WM 13. Let's not forget his clash with his brother Owen Hart. These were all spectacles. They all came from the Hitman.
When it came to the number one spot it was a close call between Hart and HBK, but I do believe that Bret has a small edge over the sexy boy. Despite that these two can be swithced around at any time depending on the writer. Still like I said before I say he gets the nod in my book. So here is your No. 1, Bret "The Hitman" Hart!
