Re: General Pro Wrestling News and Discussion Thread Part Deux!

In a forum elsewhere, somebody started a thread asking for a rough list of who everyone thought were the best wrestlers to hold the WWE Championship (not the best champions, just the best performers). My initial list caused a shitstorm because I ranked RVD and Kurt Angle higher than Randy Savage, so I spent that weekend going over some old matches and the like in an effort to tweak my original list given that it got to so many people. Again, the thread starter had said give a rough list, which wasn't something I really thought much into, regardless I did the list again and came up with this:

1. Shawn Michaels
2. Ric Flair
3. Bruno Sammartino
4. Steve Austin
5. Bret Hart
6. Hulk Hogan
7. Kurt Angle
8. Rey Mysterio
9. Bob Backlund
10. Eddie Guerrero
11. CM Punk
12. Chris Jericho
13. Brock Lesnar
14. The Undertaker
15. Edge
16. Randy Savage
17. Randy Orton
18. Triple H
19. Rob Van Dam
20. The Rock

And even though it hasn't resulted in any shitstorms, I'm sure it still drives people mad. Just out of curiosity, what would you guys rate as the 20 best wrestlers to have held the WWE Championship?
