Re: Analyze This: Greatest of All Times
To your point. Where is the discussion there?
When my friends & I compiled our lists, we used a numerical system broken down by category.
On a scale of 1-10, give each guy a number under each category (this way, you can still include drawing power if you want but it doesn't necessarily make someone the greatest).
(1) Ring Work:
(3) Drawing Power:
(4) Charisma And/Or Verbal Skills/Promos: (this category was rough cause we tried to present it in a way that wouldn't exclude non-English speaking performers, hence the lumping of charisma with promo):
(5) Memorable Feuds/Matches:
So then you would answer with, as an example:
(1) - 4
(2) - 8
(3) - 10
(4) - 10
(5) - 10
Someone else might have Hogan at like:
(1) - 6
(2) - 7
(3) - 9
(4) - 9
(5) - 7
So then you get the average of the totals. In this case 40. Then when you write down the popular opinion at the end you would have:
#1 SOME GUY W/ MORE THAN 40 & MORE THAN #2
#2 SOME GUY W/ MORE THAN 40
#3 HULK HOGAN - 40 POINTS
#4 SOME GUY WITH LESS THAN 40 BUT HIGHER THAN #5
#5 SOME GUY WITH LESS THAN 40, LESS THAN #4 & MORE THAN #6
If you so desire, you can even make certain categories be more weighted than others, if for example you feel promos mean less and drawing means more.
