Jake Roberts, Ric Flair, Jerry Lawler, Roddy Piper, Billy Graham all better......the real top five.
(BTW i still don't get how Lawler is not on the list, it makes the whole thing a farce to me).
Austin, Top ten maybe? Overated probably, but he is top 20 for sure.
is debatable Austin either on top 3 ahead of those legends or not but in term of mic work Austin carried Bret/Austin fued and the whole damn Company on his shoulders with neck injuries, you can made someone like Austin character-charisma but you need to be great on mic...after his neck injury his in ring suck and mostly on MIC cutting promos week in and week out making money for WWF. if you say Austin overrated...you fucking out of your mind...
remember Jericho Conspiracy angle in WCW? he fucking carried the whole fued and the Cruiserweight, Jericho is simlar to AUstin on mic cutting promos/segment week in and week out... for those who haven't seen Jericho work in WCW and forgot so here it is and plus this whole Conspiracy angle is Jericho work http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CoVrkiejOIQ
if you look at it great mic worker like Austin usually they write their own shit...
