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

I have disagreements about stuff with you guys and a couple of my friends...but nothing really bothersome or overt. Can't say that I've encountered ass hole fans...or the fanatics as I like to call them.

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?

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

Interesting list. Don't have much problems with it...I think I would rank The Rock and Triple H higher on that list based on your criteria of best performers, along with the Undertaker. I think the three of them would be in my top ten to be honest, but otherwise I think that's a great list.

^^ I'd personally reverse Rey Mysterio and Chris Jericho's positions, but that's just me.

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

As I thought Brock is being advertised for the 1000th episode, so is Bret Hart!

I know, it's exciting stuff, I'm wondering whether they have the beginning of some big angle planned, to commemorate. Hopefully they won't blow the show, regardless of what they have planned for it!

I have a feeling they may introduce the new WWE Championship belt at the show, since the WWE Championship is the only title that has been permanently active since the beginning of Raw. (the Intercontinental Championship briefly ceased being active in 02-03, ludicrous decision in hindsight!)

I'm also wondering whether they will announce a stipulation for the Lesnar/HHH match at the show. A straight up wrestling match would be good, but I think a HIAC or Street Fight is a more likely candidate. Of course, WWE could really buy into Lesnar's UFC days and have it so he only accepts the match if it's inside an octagon cage, which would of course, serve as a storyline advantage for Lesnar.

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

I've theorized that we could see the unveiling the new WWE Title there as well...I could see Triple H walking out with it to present it with Punk, only to be interrupted by that familiar music...out walks Brock (maybe even with Paul at his side) hops up to the ring takes a long look at Punk (who smirks back at him) and then grabs the mic and says something like "Summer Slam...I'm going to bring you pain!!" (yeah that was bad I'm tired right though lol). Or it will happen something similar to that.

Viscera claims that he was scheduled to win the WWE Championship in 1995... I honestly can't put it into words, so I'll use a GIF instead,

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

This thread is dying a bit...I guess there isn't much to discuss right now until the 1000th episode, and since I haven't been able to see Raw or comment on stuff that is going on.

The Rock tweeted that he would be there and hash tagged his intent to recapture the WWE Championship.

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

^ Can you imagine WWE pulling something like booking The Rock to capture the WWE Championship at Raw #1000? It's almost worryingly possible if John Cena wins the MITB match... Rock vs. Cena: Part II @ Summerslam

I noticed a few people were pissed at the mock revelation that Hornswoggle was the Anonymous Raw GM. I knew that it would be a farce conclusion given that Santino was the person engaging in the investigation. At this point it was just WWE ribbing the audience, they probably had a few people in mind for the role back when it was relevant, but decided to quietly bury the angle because Michael Cole was getting over instead of the Anonymous GM concept!

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

In that case the obvious conclusion would have been to make the anonymous GM Michael Cole.

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

If they tried to ignore all the wrestlers with sordid bits in their histories, they wouldn't have anyone left to talk about. Pro wrestling is a dirty industry. Everybody knows that; they just don't talk about it.

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

Yeah I am another fan would thought it logical to reveal that it was Michael Cole...that ship sailed a long time ago though. @Admiral M...I agree that revealing of Hornswaggle as the Anonymous GM was a gag and not meant to be the reveal of their actual plans.

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

I'm somewhat amazed and scared at the same time, by how much Ric Flair has aged in the last decade. Check this out:
