Top 10 material wrestler. I know he is worthy of being in the top 10 and even in the top 5 in some people's list. However, I could only put him near the top 10. If he stayed in the WWE, where he belonged, for the rest of the 90s and throughout the 00s, he might have reached the top 5. He is still one of my favorite wrestlers of the 90s, second to HBK, and of all time.

I respect everything that CM Punk has done in his legendary career. However, he loses a few points from walking out of the company six months before his contract expired. I still consider he one of the best wrestlers in a long time. He was the total package who could wrestle, talk, and entertain.

17. Ric Flair

When he comes back for another WWE run, he may reach my top 10 list when it is all said and done. WWE must complete to use him correctly by having him put on entertaining matches on a near weekly basis. He has baby Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit written all over him. He has the potential to become on of the very best. See you at the end of 2014, DB.

Self | W.W.E. 24

He was trained by the Original Sheik, Ed Farhat, who was one of pro-wrestling's classic and greatest bad guys.

I started to like him during his last run in the WWE from 2009 to 2011 because he had great matches with everyone in the locker room. It is a shame WWE did not use him better during his final years. While Randy Orton is one of my favorite, I believe Christian helped him to become a more consistent wrestler in the ring than he already was back in 2011. Due to working with Christian, he had good matches with Mark Henry and Kane, which is not easy to do.

Patricia Anne Stratigeas, better known as Trish Stratus, is marketed as a former wrestler for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE). Before she became a mainstay in professional wrestling, she was a student at York University in Toronto, Canada where she majored in Biology and Kinesiology. While in ...

Probably my favorite female wrestler ever. She it all, the looks, talent, work ethnic, personality to go all the way to top, which she did. I wish she wrestled longer; however, I do not fault her for calling it a career in 2006 because she wrestled for 6 years, which is a long time for a female performer.
