It's way too hard to name just five, there have been soooo many great talents.

From a good technical side : Jerry Lynn , Chris Candido , Bret Hart , Dean Milinko , Billy Robinson , Lance Storm , Eddie and Chavo both , Bob Roop, Kurt Angle .

Just great workers in general : Jake Roberts, Mr. Perfect, Steve Austin, Rock , Flair , Mark Lewin, Murdoch, Terry Funk, Rick Rude , Debiasie, Steamboat , Savage, Lawler Could go on and on.

On the stick : Piper , Flair , Hogan , Rock , Austin , Jake Roberts , Heaneen , Mick Foley, Lawler .

I know I was supposed to name only 5 it's too hard.

Absolutely.
I was trying to think of the total package - workers who embodied the best of all skills.
But, even then, it's too hard to limit it to five; there are just so many!

I'm sure ratings are going to sky rocket with this guy as Champ.


Two things:

1.) Bryan isn't desecrating the belt or the position of champ the way "The Queer from San Antonio" did.
2.) Bryan isn't overrated and glorified by marks the way "The Queer from San Antonio" is.

Only in the presence of the above two things could we draw any kind of comparison between Daniel Bryan and "The Queer from San Antonio."
But, since he does not portray ambiguous faggotry and sissiness via his character, the only thing he has in common with HBK is drawing little money.

You know what though - Bryan is ALWAYS trying to better his craft. He trains hard with my Neal Melanson trying to perfect new moves and holds.

Cool!
Shawn Michaels used to pass out on Somas and get beat up a lot.
Then he had to "look for his smile," which I'm sure was very difficult and equated hard training.

So, I guess that's one more thing Bryan and the "Toy Boy" have in common.

1.  Superstar Billy Graham
2.  Jimmy Superfly Snuka
3.  Tommy Wildfire Rich
4.  Tony Mr USA Atlas
5.  Kerry Modern Day Warrior Von Erich

Not the best workers or technically sound, not the best mic skills ( except for Graham ) but these were the guys I rooted for the most when I thought it was real, and even afterwards.  Looking back, I'd have to group Ric Flair with these guys too, but didn't really root for him as a kid.

Wasn't it his idea for Hell in the Cell? What about the ladder match?

I don't know who created HITC, but the only thing "Toy Boy" can lay claim to is being in the first one.
FOLEY set the excitement benchmark in 1998 when he took two unforgettable falls - not to mention the rest of his superb performance - during his "Cell" match.

As for the ladder match, that was NOT Shawn's idea.
The first ladder match on North American soil took place in Stampede Wrestling in 1972.
Bret and Bad News did one in the very early 80's, and it was Bret who pitched the idea to Vince years later.
Bret and Shawn worked one at a non-televised show so that management could see how it went over.
Supposedly, Bret made Vince promise not to do it in a high-profile show without the Hitman's involvement, but Vince booked Shawn and Razor to do the gimmick two years later in their I-C title match at WM X.


I could care less about the locker room or their private lives.

Yet, you ALWAYS attack HHH attributing his success to crawling into bed with the McMahon's.
The FACT is he was champion and got a major, well-deserved push WELL BEFORE his marriage, but that's beside the point.

You only turn a blind eye to Michaels, which is why I'm always quick to point out the reality: he was a good performer most of the time, his character was too gay to draw big money, and he's used politicking to remain relevant all these years, as there have been many workers to surpass what he's done in the way of bumps, aerial moves, etc.
And, certainly, his character has been outperformed by the number of guys who've drawn considerably BETTER business than he has.

LOL!!!

Speaking of queers and losing smiles...
My buddy worked in WWE developmental for a while.
He said it is basically part of Federation folklore; the "special relationship" HBK has/had with a very, VERY, VERY high-ranking male executive in the company.
In fact, our very own Playboy from this board is school buddies with a member of the current roster who has also recounted those stories.

Actually there appears to have been quite a large number of gay/bisexual higher-ups in wrestling over the years.
I never encountered anything in my brief tenure - maybe I wasn't cute enough - but, this seemed to be a common theme in the 80's, hence all the accusations during the sex scandals.
