All those names were established stars. You can make a case for Jericho for being an up and comer, he can be taken off that list. Maybe that's why their feud only had 1 ppv match in 2000, because he couldn't elevate a youngster to stardom. Triple H's great matches are only big, because his opponent has already reached stardom.
I give Foley so much credit for pushing Hunter into the mega heel level. This is why I agree with Bret that Hunter is a good wrestler, but not a great one with Austin, Rock, Foley, Undertaker, HBK, Bret and so on.
