Lately, there has been a lot of talk about comparing former and current stars.
In fact, CM Punk lately has been compared to many other stars as if he were just an evolved version of these former performers.
There are no shortage of ideas by people about who is who from the past.
I suppose I am here to just put my hat in the table by saying that these comparisons are a bit unfounded.
Yes, many stars have some characteristics of older stars, but that does not mean that they are just WWE's version of that star in modern WWE.
Each of these athletes is a distinct person, wrestler, and performer.
So the following are my comparisons of stars to their closest counterpart in the past. While some of these I will say are fairly close, there are no shortage of unfounded comparisons, and those who are close still have things that make them distinctive.
