Seems to be the word thrown around quite often on WWE TV these days, usually by CM Punk in his quest to be universally respected as the best wrestler in the world. Storyline it may be, a lot of what others have said about respect having to be earned is very true and over the many years several superstars have come and gone but who did enough in their WWE tenure to gain respect from you?
Obviously this list could feature names from way back as wrestling has such a history and it is likely that a lot of names mentioned will be those that no longer compete as those currently active still have careers ahead of them to earn respect.
A bit of a tough one for me as I respect certain wrestlers in different ways but I'm just going to list the ones that immediately spring to mind when I think of that word. I'll do that tomorrow as I'm on the iPad and its taken me long enough to write up this opening.
So, who do you respect?
