The 30 Greatest Wrestlers of All-Time…In My Opinion

List A: 30 through 21

In light of “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s tragic death, I decided to compile a list of who I believe are the greatest wrestlers of all-time to see how he stacks up. There are a few rules, however, that I’ll go over quickly.

First, all of these wrestlers had to have performed in my lifetime. If I haven’t seen them wrestle, then they don’t make the list. So a lot of the old-timers like Gorgeous George and Lou Thesz are not included here. I have to see someone wrestle and entertain to make a personal judgment.

Second, these wrestlers are not only from WWE, but from WCW as well. Many of the greats wrestled for both companies, but some remained loyal to one or the other.

The last rule is that each wrestler had to be a great entertainer, whether as a heel or a face. These wrestlers all won over the crowd, either by inspiring raucous cheers or hate-filled boos. What makes a wrestler great goes beyond his ability in the ring; he has to be able to rile the crowd up.

So, without any further delay, here is my list of numbers 30 through 21.

30. Eddie Guerrero

Accomplishments: WWE Champion, 2-time WWE Intercontinental Champ, WWE United States Champ, 4-time WWE Tag Team Champ, WCW United States Heavyweight Champ, 2-time WCW Cruiserweight Champ, 2-Time WWF European Champ, 2-time ECW World Television Champ, 2006 WWE Hall of Fame

My biggest criticism so far is the inclusion of DDP mainly because he's pretty shitty in the ring. He's a good character, though. I might end up arguing that some of your 21-30 belong higher. For example, Mr. Perfect was such a good technical wrestler that I'd put him close to the top, but he was never at a level of a heavyweight champ and was never a face so he gets overlooked.

Painter: DDP was underrated in the ring. He only had a few moves, but he was such a crowd-pleaser that he has to be included. Most people don't know that he was the People's Champion well before The Rock stole the monicker.
