Yes or no?

Is there a list now so I can look at it and see if I think Savage should be there instead of someone else?

My initial reaction was "no", but thinking of 10 other wrestlers that I think should be ahead of him there are several that I wouldn't care if Savage was ahead of them or not.

"Ooooh Yeaaaah..."

:laugh:

Do you mean "WWF" wrestling? The fact that his quotes are stll relevant after he's been "retired" for so long, I'd say "yes".

I'm not a fan of WWF/etc, but I actually watched it for a few months a few years ago.. saw a couple of legitimate injuries that tested the improv skills of the announcers, for sure, when the "actors" were being carried off the stage.

He's definitely in my personal top ten of all time, but I could be biased by his presence and astonishing fashion sense...

Off the top of my head the ones I would definitely rank ahead of Savage

1. Ric Flair
2. Andre the Giant
3. Hulk Hogan
4. Georgeous George
5. Verne Gagne
6. Brett Hart


There are many others that I would put on par with Savage, but I wouldn't care if Savage was ranked ahead of them either.

Also I don't know a lot of the really old school guys that should probably be included on the list

Definitely. My favorite when I was a kid. Always put on exciting matches, and knew how to work a crowd.

Randy Savage was a great wrestler with above average promo skills but IMO would not be considered to one of the top 10 wrestlers of all time.

For those that say he is not in the Top 10, I need to see your list.

Hulk Hogan
Undertaker
Shawn Michaels
The Rock
Ric Flair
Bret Hart
Mr Perfect
Kurt Angle

those are my Top 8. after that i think who you wanna add depends on what criteria you're looking at. in terms of overall star power and legendary status, i'd say Macho Man deserves to be in that list.

if we're talking pure wrasslin' skills, then there's quite a few i'd put ahead of Macho Man - RVD, Rey Mysterio, Chris Benoit, Marty Jannetty, Owen Hart... etc.

if you're talking legends, there's quite a big pool to choose from, some very debatable, eg. Ultimate Warrior, Yokozuna, HHH, Ted DiBiase, Davey Boy Smith, Andre the Giant...

He would be in my top 10. As a teenager, I always enjoyed watching:

Bret Hart, Undertaker, Randy Savage, Ricky Steamboat, Tha Rock, Chris Benoit, Jeff Hardy, The Acolytes (team - count as one), Legion of Doom (team - count as one), Dudley Bros (team - count as one). Then again, I wasn't a hardcore fan. By my choices, clearly I watched during a certain era.

I generally found watching matches with Hogan, Flair, Piper, Austin and a number of the other veterans to be so so.

Randy's actual talent has been overlooked by some people due to his gimmick. Truth his, he was always a damn solid worker. There's a reason a lot of wrestlers rate Savage vs. Steamboat at Wrestlemania 3 as the greatest match of all time. Both guys are top tier workers and they put on what could be considered a "perfect" wrestling match.

Savage DEFINITELY in my top 10.

Sting
HHH
Bret Hart

I think it's a little of both...Wrestling is part Technical and the rest is how good of a show you put on...so Randy fits both bills.

He was an essential part of what made the WWF awesome in the 80s. :buttrock:
