The 100 Greatest Wrestlers of All Time

OK, I am taking another stand.

I will stick to my guns on this one. This is the piece I have wanted to do for some time, so here it is.

Remember, I am schooled in the traditions of wrestling, the likes of Jack Brisco and Harley Race.  The figure four leg lock and the Russian Leg Sweep. I believe in the carnage of blood and gore from a bull rope match and I love seeing barbed wire draped across the ring.

I remember when Dusty Rhodes was young, Terry Funk could wrestle and Barry Windham was a wet-behind-the-ears kid trying to make a name for himself in Florida.

Yes, to me that is professional wrestling.

And while I watch it today with all its glamour and style, I think at times how in the world someone could make the transition from toe holds and arm bars to a Five-Star Frog Splash or a Huracanrana off the top ring rope.

Truly a change in style and in pace as far as I am concerned.

Understand too this is my list. I think the past should be honored for its diligence in the business. I feel there are wrestlers who are Top-10 caliber that will surprise you and others whom are a little lower on this list that will disappoint you.

But all that does it bring about a great debate!

Let’s get started, shall we?
