The 1,2,3 KID, SYKE... The Ultimate Warrior!
Not sure who my favorite is so I'll just share a quick story. My first event was 24 years ago in Columbus, MS. Lord Humongous was introduced that night and scared many of kids when he came out of the locker room. He later went on to become Sid Vicious. Rick flair fought Wild Cat Windle Cooley, a local favorite and it was beyond epic. Adrian Street was there as well and he was a character if there ever was one. (He was notorious for licking the palm if his hand then pretending to wipe the refs butt with it). An hour after the show was over we saw everyone mentioned above getting gas at a local 7/11. I thought they were enemies in real life and till this day it pisses me off that I had to see that at such a young ago.

Sting. My current favorite is AJ Styles.

Stacy Keebler. Does she count as a wrestler?
That's like asking me to choose between children. If I had to choose my favorite of all time I'd go HBK.
Sting was at the event I mentioned above as well. Of course back then he simply had the star over his eye, not positive he had the white face then or it was added later.
This. UK just signed his son to play football.
Keep Calm & Stoops On..
Curse them for breaking kayfabe. My uncle was a manager at a gym near Hershey PA back in the day & they would always use that gym when they were in town & he said they were all pretty much cool with one another. Even though they were blood enemies on TV lol.
Same here, hard to choose really. FYI the HBK was voted #1 overall by his colleagues a few years back in the 50 Greatest Wrestlers of all-time DVD.
He was the ish in the mid to late 90's until he got hurt. He could put on a 5 star match with anyone & was always entertaining. I was a huge HBK mark back then.
For me it was like finding out Santa Claus wasnt real.
I know. When my uncle told me The L.O.D & Nasty Boys were pumping iron together I was shocked & appalled. I expected the story to end with them tearing down the gym going at it. Not high fiving & encouraging one another.
As you know the best Wrestlers are the ones who make you look better than you are which is why everyone wanted to work with the HBK. Although that era is gone there's no question today that Dolph Ziggler put in his homework and does a better job than anyone at selling almost every move to the point he makes average wrestlers look better than they are (from a technique standpoint). Dolph could and would have fit in just fine in the attitude era.

Standing on a hill in my mountain of dreams,
Telling myself it's not as hard as it seems - Led Zeppelin
Dolph has been getting a "push" for like two years now. & I agree hes one of the best workers out there right now. I have no idea why they are not putting him over. Vince does stupid sh!t that makes no sense.
He's underrated technique wise. For example look at Cena, he doesn't sell his moves like he use to when he was hungry. Hardly anyone does IMO and it looks bad. Zig needs a makeover. He's been doing the bad boy thing for too long IMO. Then you have a guy like Ryback come in and he shoots too the top and the whole storyline is for him to lose consistantly in the big matches by way of cheating or interference. Why? The crowd obviously views him as the next Goldberg but now that he's lost several times where does he go from here? His role would have been better as one who was somewhat invincible IMO.
Hulk Hogan. Watching him "hulk up" when ish looked bleak, followed by the three punches, big boot, and then the atomic leg drop was something that made my day when I was a kid. It was like watching Rocky Balboa dig down and find a way to beat Ivan Drago, Clubber Lang, Apollo Creed, etc. I will admit I was pretty pissed when I went to see my first wrestling event as a child and Hacksaw Jim Duggan had to fill in for Hulk Hogan as Sgt. Slaughter's opponent in the main event (allegedly Hogan was in trouble for drugs or juice or something).
I don't get the love for HBK. He is a wrestling legend and great performer for sure, but he's a bit of a weasel as a person (unless finding religion changed him). The way he handled the Montreal Screw Job and bitched out when Bret Hart confronted him was pathetic. That will always be a major black mark on him IMO.
I can see not liking him as a person. But there is no taking away from him his in ring ability & the matches he made. Dude put on 5 star matches against Vader. Name another wrestler who could do that. Yes he was a prick & a back stage politician, but there is no denying how awesome he was. A lot of it had to do with the real life heat he had with Bret Hart. Neither wanted to drop the title to each other or anyone else for that matter. Both were always jockeying with each other for the top spot & neither would yeild. That's the business. Both have moved on & buried the hatchet, HBK even admitted his role in the MSJ. They did a dvd together where they both stated that they were sorry to one another & wished it all would have never happened.
