    so i guess they “blurred out” punk from the list too?

    I am not so sure about Hulk Hogan the other guys on the list are pretty good. But Hogan to me if he doesn’t have a card to look at in the back he can’t talk on the mic so good. Or maybe that just age caught up with him. I know when these list comes up there always somebody who never agrees. Ric Flair is where he should be #1 nobody has been better on the mic. In Ric Flair promo me credited a lot of moment on that stick.

    I’m honestly not sure whether you’re joking or serious. Dusty Rhodes was fantastic on the mic. His “Hard Times” promo is widely regarded as a clinic for such spots. The idea that he would not be on such a list is almost laughable. Arn Anderson was also very good and probably underrated simply because he was with Flair.

    The top 3 I agree with, in that order, and I’m glad to see Piper recognized, as he cut some of the best promos ever. I’d move Heyman to number 4, however, and move CM Punk into the lower half of the top 10.

    HHH at #6 is what i meant….

  • trevor

    it is shit…..Bray Wyatt, even though he is a newer guy, should be ranked in the 12-15 range. Arn Anderson and Dusty Rhodes should not be on this list. CM punk should be in the top 5, and Paul Heyman should be #1!!!! Rounding out the top 5 should be The Rock, Stone Cold, Jericho and then HHH.
