When he was in his prime, he COULD wrestle. His days in Japan(before Hulkamania) proves it.

See i was thinkin guys like Bruno and them, but wrestling is especially hard to pick the GOATs in.

1. because obviously its scripted so there's guys who aren't really that good but they still get mentioned cuz the script called for them to win all the time

2. because its COMPLETELY changed since the early days. At least basketball still has the same basic idea, but wrestling went from a 99% technical show that was seen as real to "sports entertainment" which is now 70% soap opera and 30% actual wrestling (and of that 30% only like 5 is actual WRESTLING, while the rest is stunts)

3. because of what is allowed now. Like back in the day someone couldn't do the things that made Austin entertaining to us, and they werent on TV to become the icons that Hogan and Rock are

I mostly just stuck to the modern era of what we call pro wrestling (80s-present)

I personally think the Rock was the best ever but he only did it for 7 years or so.

I stopped watching in about 2000, but man it was some good times while it lasted.

I don't really know how you can really pick anyone at #1 but Hogan. He put wrestling on a whole new level. After that I think you can make valid arguments for everyone else at #2 and beyond.

There wouldn't be a WWE right now if it weren't for Hogan.

cena and edge shouldnt be considered number 1....

Hogan is #1...not cuz of his wrestling skills but his personality, the way he portrayed himself was perfect for wwf

Looks like the Hulkster is leading the voting we need enought comments so finally we can closed this thread. Move on the 2nd best wrestler in the history of the WWE.

What are we basing #1 on? Best in-ring ability or on how big the superstar was?


Greatest superstar is Hogan.

Best technical wrestler would be either Benoit or Bret Hart.

Hogan didn't do much of technical wrestling when he was in the US, just because he didn't have to. But when he wrestled in Japan, he did, kinda "had to", show his ground wrestling skills.

These are clips when he wrestled The Great Muta, one of the best technical wrestler at the time, in 1993 while he was still in Hulkamania gimmick. Vince would never allow Hogan to do moves like armbar or enzuigiri in WWF.

(Hogan use "Axe Bomber" running clothesline instead of the legdrop as his finisher in Japan)

Ric Flair.
Same mic skills as Hogan.
Blows Hogan away when it comes to working matches.

However Hogan made wresting what it is today.

Glad to see no one mention Triple Turd, sorry I meant H.
