The best high-flying wrestling act to you?

Who was/is your favorite high flying wrestler of all times? Though I have predominantly watched Rey Mysertio and RVD who happens to be my faves, Eddie Guerrero tops my list for having a way out of the frog splash if his opponent were to move by rolling and special mention to AJ Styles for his unique move set.

Your say?

Re: The best high-fly wrestlers acc to you?

Mysterio was the first I thought of. I think Eddie overall is a better wrestler, but I'd have Rey as THE high flyer.

Rey Mysterio in the United States. It's hard to pick one. El Hijo del Santo was great from technical aspect. I pick El Hijo del Santo.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Myterio was the firt I came up with but I was always a fan of LA PARKA, great talent and I used to get a crack out of him playing the airguittar as a kid.

Re: The best high-fly wrestlers acc to you?

I loved the cruiserweights work in WCW obviously of Rey, Juvi, Eddie, La Parka, Jushin fucking Thunder Liger and Kidman.

But in terms of wow factor I can't go past AJ Styles and my favourite, a prime RVD. RVD did stuff I couldn't believe with my own eyes. I still think his 5 Star Frog Splash is the best finisher of all time.

AJ Styles and Jushin Liger IMO.

Mysterio for WWE/WWF/WCW/ECW - honourable mentions to Ultimo Dragon, Psychosis, and The Juice (I think).

Yes I am definitely implying that Mysterio is highly outclassed by many other people in many other companies - clearly Mexico. Jack Evans is an indy wrestler who does some insane shit.

Re: The best high-fly wrestlers acc to you?

Ultimo Dragon was the first name that came to mind for me. He was one of the main reasons that I enjoyed the tuned into the cruiserweight division in WCW. Don't get me wrong guys like Mysterio, Guerrera, Kidman and others were awesome too. But Ultimo Dragon is still one of my personal favorite cruiserweights. I remember when news broke out he was coming to WWE, I was ecstatic. Shame that went down the shitter pretty quickly.

Other guys I do enjoy (or enjoyed) were: Jushin "Thunder" Liger, Rob Van Dam, AJ Styles, "Flyin" Brian Pillman. Well you all get the picture.


STAND BACK!
