A lot of the flare of a WWE event is lost without the superstars coming to the ring in an extravagant manner. Even if the storylines are built well, that small walk down the ramp gets the crowd pumped up into a frenzy, anticipating the action they are about to witness.
Read on, my friends, to see my list of the nine flashiest entrances in WWE history.
Despite his personal demons, Jeff Hardy is arguably one of the most popular superstars to ever lace up his boots. His high-energy entrances started when he was part of the Hardy Boyz and have held true to the present day.
Another superstar who is immensely popular, Rey Mysterio always gets the crowd going when he pops out from under the stage. He has added a new dimension to this excitement by getting people talking about what pop culture icon he will dress up as at each WrestleMania.
Few are loved as much as the late, great Eddie Guerrero. There are few in professional wrestling that could get the fans going like Eddie and his lowriders. He, along with JBL, may have influenced a certain superstar.
Batista was a large and imposing figure and his popularity after leaving Evolution was unquestionable. The energy he exhumed in his entrances of that time were reminiscent of another big man in wrestling named...
From his WCW days to his brief stint in WWE, Goldberg's entrance was intense. The pyrotechnics and the breathing of the smoke was and still is absolutely amazing.
When the phenom from Death Valley's music hits, you know something is about to happen. Once the lights cut and 'Taker steps out from behind that curtain, it's just eerie. The crowd gets into his entrance as well, waving lighters amongst the darkness.
The hype for a DX in-ring return was at a fever pitch before Summerslam 2009, and the boys did not disappoint, with a flashy and hi-jinx-filled entrance.
You won't get two more polarizing figures than John Cena and Triple H. The entrances the two had at WrestleMania 22 are two of the greatest in recent memory.
Shawn Michaels' entrance at the silver anniversary of WrestleMania was nothing short of awe-inspring. With the way the match was built and how the story played out to that point, Michaels' entrance conveyed all of the emotion put in into that match. WWE would be hard-pressed to make this kind of lightning strike again.
The Eddie/JBL "inspired" superstar
So what do you guys think? Did I miss someone? Did someone not deserve to be on the list? (Don't say John Cena just because he's John Cena.) I'm up for debate, as always!
Until next time, I'm Merlot Williams, and that's my opinion.
