    Default The Official PW List: Top 100 WWE wrestlers of all time.

    I'm taking a cue from the Entertainment forum. In an attempt to inspire discussion, I am going to take on a collaborative effort to see where exactly we stand as a whole in our opinion of the greats. Here's what you have to do: Send me your lists. I'm going to request a Top 20 minimum, 30 maximum.

    Now obviously, this is a huge project so it will take some time. I'm going to give everyone until March 22nd to make up their lists. After that, it will take some time to tally and add things up. I am going to HOPE to have this started by Wrestlemania, but depending on the size of the project it may not be possible. I'll keep you all updated on that front. I think this could be very interesting and could inspire a ton of discussion.

    Please number your lists. That will make things so much easier for me. Also, please space in your lists. Things may run together for me after a while. THe way scoring will be counted is on each list, the #1 guy will receive 20 pts, #2 will recieve 19, #20 will recieve 1 point.

    So start doing your thinking and get those lists ready.

    Is this who we think are the greatest in terms of what they accomplished, or who are just simply our favorites ?

    So Brooklyn Brawler in the #1 spot and Hulk Hogan in the #20 spot I can work with that.

    So only WWE accomplishments right or can we take into account stuff they did outside the E'.

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs."

    This is top WWE Wrestlers, so I don't think it would make sense to take into account stuff they did outside the E' .

    Completely up to you. I'm giving everyone full reign. All they have to have done is COMPETE for the WWE.

    Yeah. You know what? I think that's a good call. Base it on WWE work.

    No. You'll make a list based on upon whatever you want, but try to keep it based on WWE work only. Whether it's because they're a personal favorite or you like their ring/promo work, whatever reason you want, vote for them

    I plan on mixing my list to contain both my personal favorites and some based on their accomplishments. For example, I would feel like an idiot if I didn't include Hogan on my list but also, someone like a CM Punk may have a better placing than him. I'm going to have to think about how I want to make my list.

    Only problem I won't have is choosing who number one will be.

    If you don't want top put Taker on there, don't. The first list I've gotten so far from a well respected poster, doesn't have Hogan on it. Do what you want. Don't worry on how you feel you SHOULD vote.

    OK will do, no Genichiro Tenryu for me then. But I will warn that my list will probably not have many main event stars except for Austin ()

    Fuck this was hard, several favorites got kicked off the list and 2 personal faves got booted out of top 15 spots - Dean Malenko and Lance Storm. I loved what they did in WWE but not enough to get top 30 spots. I'll steal what I saw people do in the "Favorite TV Drama" thread and reveal a wrestler has they get shown on the overall list.

    Milopo, don't worry. Out of the three lists I have so far, the results vary SO much.

    Sent my list in and it was a mixture of who are my favorite wrestlers and who impacted the WWF/E the most with their storylines, matches, and promos .

    I weighted both when deciding where to place people .

    Want to know how diverse the lists are? On 7 lists, all but two being 20 names...we have 64 wrestlers right now. And the guy that's in the lead, isn't a total shock, but probably a surprise to some.

    Cool idea Benson, i'll get to work on a list. I promise PW, Miz won't take my #1 spot

    That's my list sent, picking the 30 was easy, ranking them was bloody hard, i'd always want to put someone higher every time I wrote their name down. Not gonna lie, mine is very very this gen. There are some guys who got on for the sole fact that I think their contributions to wrestling can't be ignored. Largely though mine was based on personal enjoyment.

    So do we include tag teams separately or as a team?

    IE : Apart the Dudleys are not near my top 30 , but as a team they are one of my favorites of all time.*


    * Just an example , I hate the WWE Dudley Boys.

    Great idea. I'm ranking wrestlers based on who I enjoy as a fan, and nothing more. With that in mind, Hogan is certainly not making my list. As for the 20-30 wrestlers that are...I don't know yet. This could take me a while.

    Just a reminder about scoring. Of you're accepting lists of 30, then everyone's #1 needs to be worth 30 points and do on, even if someone only sends in 20, to keep it balanced.

    Ill def be sending a list in.
