pick 15... wrestlers from the history of the sport, or better yet "sports entertainment"..
CANNOT pick mine, this is fantasy...
FIVE PER ROUND...
Talk about loyal. WCW's most popular wrestler minus Hollywood Hulk Hogan. Sting partnered with "Flexy" Lexy, and he fought him as well. Sting came back as the crow, then gave Hogan a BIG scare.
Hogan... self explanatory. WMania 1
Ric Flair... I think he won the heavyweight title more than "16x's".. haha
Bobo Brazil- forget the Rock, Booker T, and Ron Simmons, Bobo was the pioneer african american superstar.
Terry Funk- Hardcore, Hardcore, Hardcore...

- Andre the Giant!
8th Wonder of the World.
One of the most recognizable names in the history of wrestling.
To quote a famous line from Princess Bride, Andre isn't just on the Brute Squad, he IS THE Brute Squad.
- 'Stone Cold, Stone Cold, Stone Cold!'
Stone Cold Steve Austin!
One of the biggest draws in the history of wrestling and leader of WWF's Attitude Era.
My list will be the best and That's the bottom line cause Stone Cold Steve Austin said so!
- Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson!
The Great One! The People's Champ! The Brahma Bull!
- Bret 'The Hitman' Hart!
The Excellence of Execution!
The best best there was, the best there is, and the best there EVER will be!
- Georgous George!
The orignal "Over the Top", 'you just wanna see him get his', uber confident, flamboyant performer/wrestler.
The inspiration for generations and generations of wrestlers , even til this very day.
Also, THE inspiration for Muhammad Ali's over the top personna as stated by Ali himself on several occasions.

Andre the Giant.. Eh.....yeah, he sparked Hogan to monumental status. No diss, I'll stop.
Brute squad, gotcha.
I knew stone cold would pop up, his longevity on top effects me.
My 6th pick, and please, these are not in order...
Inducted into the 2012 wwe hof
The innovator of the luche libre style.
This guys's nephew is Albert del rio... (big time pointers)
This guy tagged with hogan in '82 and '83
The emperor of Japan pro rastlin'
Inoki went into wcw's hall of fame in'95. Might not say a lot, but I hardly ever remember wcw inducting randoms.
Shawn michaels has ONLY borrowed the flying elbow from randy savage. Randy 's ic title fight with steamboat is one for the ages, possibly the best Eva!!!!!
Simply "perfect" ..... In-ring up there with greats like hbk
Typed from my iPad, sorry.

- Rey Mysterio!
'619' The ultimate Luchadore. One of the first and best luchadores to appear in the US when he was in ECW in the mid to late 90's along with others such as Eddie Guerrero. Went on to WCW before going to the WWF/E.
The rated 'R' superstar. One of the best heels in wrestling history. The ultimate oppertunist! Too bad his career was cut short by a neck injury.
- Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka!
His dive off the top of a cage onto Don Muraco after a match at Madison Square Garden in 1983 inspired many several NY residents such as Mick Foley and Tommy Dreamer to get into wrestling. Jimmy was one of the first highflyers and is still considered 'The Ultimate Highflyer' by many to this day!
- The Dudley Boyz! (3D)
The only tagteam to hold the ECW, WCW, WWF/E, and TNA tagtitles. So hated in ECW that they caused riots before and after their matches.
- The Fabulous Moolah!
The longest reigning Women's Champ in wrestling history. She was the first female inductee into the WWF/E HOF!

i have six picks left...
You say Dudley Brothers, i say Stiener Brothers.
Suplex master, and the "dog-faced" gremlin????
One "rastler" you've forgotten, HBK, Shawn Michaels.
Shawn Michaels is arguably the best in-ring performer. They didn't call him the "showstopper" for nothing!!!!
Shawn Michaels had his share of Wrestle Mania main events as well, and did a DAMN good job performing those..
Ted Dibiase.. yeah, he didn't gather the hw strap, but he sure did have microphone game, "everybodies got a price".. Lets not forget that Ted Dibiase and IRS were pretty talented as Money INc.. Ted Dibiase has a gang of goons following him too, in the NWO, and his million dollar corporation.
Road Warriors/Legion of Doom, self explanatory.
Lex Luger.. Legendary fights with Flair, Hollywood Hogan, Sting, and Yokozuna.
Lex Luger taking on FSU's Ron Simmons was one of favorites tho. #Halloween havoc
i think you missed a couple, good day.

The Deadman. 20-0 at WrestleMania, a record that will never be broken.
- Chris Jericho!
The first undisputed WWF/E Heavyweight Champion. The Best in the World at What HE Does.
- Mick Foley!
The Hardcore Legend. Momma Foley's Little Boy. Plus with Mick, I also get Mankink and Catus Jack too!

Arn Anderson and Tully Blanchard. One half of the 4 Horsemen in the NWA!!!
- The Fabulous Freebirds!
Hailing from Bad Street, USA. Michael 'PS' Hayes, Terry "Bam Bam' Gordy, and Buddy "Jack' Roberts. Originators of the 'Freebird Rule' that allowed any combination of the three to defend their NWA Tag Titles.
- Bonus Picks, Manager and Valet.
Manager - JJ Dilion. Manager of THE FOUR HORSEMEN.
Valet - Miss Elizabeth. The Valet/manager of Randy Savage. Also his ex-wife. Will cause Randy and Hogan to fight when Randy accuses Hogan of having 'LUST' in his eyes for Elizabeth.
I didn't forget anybody PCHY, you just picked 'em first. By the way PCHY, you're still one wrestler short.
Very hard to pick just 15! Lots of great wrestlers left off our lists!!!
