Was feeling nostalgic today so decided to watch some old matches on You Tube. And seeing as I have never seen a thread on this, I decided this would make for an interesting topic.
As we all know, a major point in becoming a top star is knowing how to perform in the ring and execute your moves. But another major part, in my opinion, of becoming a top star is knowing how to sell. Because if your opponent looks good, you look good. At least that's how I see it. In selling your opponents offense, you are doing more for them than a simple victory would, win or lose. Not to mention it keeps the fans excited by appealing to that little mark inside all of us that still screams, "This is real to me!" Heheheh.
So who, in your opinion, are the top sellers of all time? At the top of my list, it's a tie between HBK and Ricky Steamboat. Aside from their awesome talent in the ring, I think they were the best at making things look painful.
Next on the list, despite not being very popular atm, is Heath Slater. I know most don't think much of him, but I can see him being the next HBK if he gets more experience in the ring and on the mic.
And then there is Randy Savage. While he was awesome in selling physically, I think he had the best facial expressions. How he cringed and squinted his eyes told a story all its own. lol.
So who are yall's picks?
