off the head, no google kings, PLEASE..
1. Sting.. Consistent at the top, he's been there for damn 20 years, still going.
2. the Ultimate "crybaby", the Utimate Warrior. Warrior's WM6 victory can never be erased.
3. The Great Muta.. his run in WCW put him on the map in the states. The Great Muta in-ring was incredible, and he faired well against rivals like Flair, and Sting. The Great Muta did come back when the nwo emerged. Muta's a legend in the land of the rising sun.
4. Hawk ... L.O.D.. self explanatory.. the leader of one of the best tag teams to ever put on the trunks..
5. Jeff Hardy.. Yes, I just said that.. Guys got more accolades than you think, dont make me bring these bad boy's out. Jeff Hardy made the ladder match a staple in the business. Yes, Shawn Michaels and Razor Ramon were the pioneers, but Hardy's been keeping them going for all of us to see.
6. SMASH.. Demolition.. "We're demolition, we're on a mission".. Darsow went on to play doink as well, not the greatest wrestler persay with that, but Demolition, reigned supreme in a deep array of tag teams. Vince at that time, didn't even know what he had. lol

You picked a lot of good ones Peach, but I will give it a shot.
I am going to try and change three to make it fun:
2. Ultimate Warrior
These 2 are not arguable. Both sat at the very top of WCW and WWF/E respectively.
3. Goldust. Straight out of one of the best period in WWF/E history...the Attitude era.
4. Doink the Clown. His original appearance as evil Doink mostly... I loved his crowd appearances leading up to his eventual feud w/ Crush.
5. The Mising Link. A little old school here. Most success came in NWA.
While I agree that LOD and Demolition are two of the very best tag teams, I tried to stick to singles wrestlers. Also, I am not sure Smash (Barry Darsow) went on to portray Doink (he may of been one of many who did). I do know for a FACT (w/o Google) he went on to portray Repo Man.

He had a stint at Doink the clown, alot of other people did too tho..
lol I'll tag Smash in on this one..
You have no love for the Great Muta? i guess he's too old for you or something, I'm highly confused why you left him off.
Goldust just got released from WWE a couple days ago, Vince wished him great hopes in his future endeavors... lol
my # 7. is the Barbarian..
you know.. Powers of Pain?
Same guy that main-evented a Halloween Havoc in the early 90's..
The Barbarian had great size and good agility for that size. Move over Warlord, I'm taking the Barbarian..
ruff fuff woop woop

Plenty of love for Muta (he isnt too old...lol)...he will make my list. I just don't think he was as good an entertainer as some. Sure...hell of a wrestler in the ring, but we both know that entertaining will trump in ring ability every time. If you can't talk/entertain...see ya! Ask Shelton Benjamin and John Morrison.
Anyway, here are my remaining five:
6. The Great Mauta - There ya go!
7. "The Taskmaster" Kevin Sullivan - He didn't use paint in his entire career, but he used it a lot.
8. Papa Shango - Another good one from the 80s and 90s. You know you were scared of him as a kid.
9. Mr. Fuji - Well you picked Smash and the Barbarian...why not go with a great wrestler, and on of the greatest managers ever who managed Demolition AND the Powers of Pain!
10. Raven - Again, not always, but he used it!
Before you argue about Sullivan and Raven not always using paint....neither did Jeff Hardy...just sayin'.

saw Jeff Hardy with a full face of paint last thursday night, impact zone..
I'll quit, but i don't really like Muta being that late on the top 10 list. The Great Muta, last i checked, is still wresting..
I was wrong about smash being Doink, and i know he was the repo man, fun gimmick, horrible pushover..hahah
Alright for 8. i'm going to agree with you.. Mr. Papa Shango..
he didn't last long, but he was getting a little push while he was going, he was the Warrior's voodoo king..
9. Animal from L.O.D. the spider did wonders..
10. Goldust.. i have him #10, not 3 lol..

Well, I do not have much more to add. Like I said before, Goldust and Doink are rated high because of their sheer entertainment value. I think they performed well above expectations, given their respective gimmicks. I was always a big fan of the bizarre one. Still am, I wish we could of seen the rumored feud between him and Cody Rhodes.
I will not dispute your choices of including LOD, and Smash. I fully agree they belong on the list, I just wanted to try an all singles list.
Thanks for the TD, and the trip down memory lane!
