I had people over to watch WK who'd never seen NJPW and they all marveled at Tana's hair and tan. I told them he was 41 and they were in shock.

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.

Buddy of mine gave me a "if you had to start WWE with 10 WWE wrestlers, who would they be" question post-Mania, and I went with

Braun
Styles
DBry
Gargano
Almas
Miz
Charlotte
Asuka
Becky
Alexa

But apart from that crew, my GOAT is the guy who wears it on his too-small trunks, Y2J baby.

Stone Cold
The Rock
Bret Hart
Daniel Bryan
AJ Styles
Brock Lesnar
Shawn Michaels
The Undertaker
Kenny Omega
Okada

No offense to the women but you could build around that for a solid year

I've got some bad NOMS for you

I got into wrestling not long after the nWo became a thing.
By the end of 1996, I realized that the only wrestler that was entertaining every drat time he stepped into the spotlight, was Chris Jericho.

He could carry a feud with anyone, even if the other party wasn't involved. The man of 1004 holds with Malenko, "Jericho goes to Washington", the Goldberg taunting...so many times he just made things work with little else than his creativity and charisma.
He could win or lose convincingly. His style worked well with both large and small opponents, and he could adjust it to suit the match. I can't recall a squash match he's ever been involved in.
He was consistently entertaining in the ring, and not many other WCW wrestlers were.

His WWF debut was legendary, it's a pity he was underutilized afterwards, but he made the most of his time in the midcard by elevating the performances of other people. I would argue that neither Chyna nor Chris Benoit would have had the careers they did if not for the ability of Jericho (and Eddie Guerrero) to sell them as he did.
When he had the opportunity to work with someone who was actually good on the mic, he could play to their strengths like no one else. It wasn't just a war of catch phrases and "I'm better than you" promos. There was depth of character that few other wrestlers have shown. Cup of Pee anyone?

20+ years later, I still think he is still the one guy who could make any booking work, any day of the week. He is the complete wrestler.

John. What are you doing.

Daniel Bryan Danielson.


I could write an essay about this. But i won't. He has this intangible element about him. He's been my favorite since 2004.


His success is wonderful and gently caress he's the most over person in the WWE
