My first pick, Shawn Michaels.
The Rockers were the most energetic team in the late 80's, early 90's. Marty Jannety and Shawn Michaels would put on a high flying maneuvers for all the fans pre luche libra days in the states.
Shawn Michael's turning on Jannety at Brutus the Barber's salon, priceless!
As we all know, Shawn Michaels has had one helluva a career in the single's ranks.

I'll go with Bret "Hit Man" Hart as my first pick.
Bret started out in the WWF during the early 80's as one part of the tag team the Hart Foundation with Jim "the Anvil" Neidhart. The British Bulldogs and the Rockers were two of the Hart Foundation's biggest rivals. Although they started as heels the Foundation soon became one of the most popular teams in WWF
In the early 90's the Hart Foundation split and Bret became a 2-time Intercontinental Championship, a 5-time heavyweight champ and one of the WWE's biggest draws and fan favorites. This lasted until 1997 when Bret shockingly turned heel sfter his WrestleMania match with Stone Cold nd formed the new Hart Foundation with Neidhart, Davey Boy Smith and Brian Pillman. This nis the maytch that Stone Cold passed out in the shartshooter rather than submit. Hart couldn't take the fanbs sheering for the loser and turned on his fans. The new Foundation was very pro-Canadian and often stirred crowds into a foaming frenzy with their anti-American rants.
These rants caused Hart to go from fan favorite to the most hated man in WWE. And ultimately led to the Montreal Screw Job which launced the Attitude Era in WWF.
