Re: Analyze This: Wrestlers transcending eras
Hulk Hogan is the obvious one as he went through The Rock And Wrestling Era, The Golden Era, The Monday Night Wars Era and then The Ruthless Aggression Era although he was the same character in three of those era's when you really look at it.
Shawn Michaels was a completely different character in three different era's from The New Generation Era, The Attitude Era and then The Ruthless Aggression Era and was a top guy in every single one of those era's as well.
Randy Savage was a major star in every era he worked in across both WWE and WCW from the mid 80's through to the very late 90's.
Triple H changed character in The New Generation Era, The Attitude Era, The Ruthless Aggression Era and the current one and was a major star in the last three.
Kurt Angle came about in 1999 but changed his character up from The Attitude Era through The Ruthless Aggression Era into his ECW run and then in TNA twice.
Chris Jericho is a great example of someone evolving their character and being a major star in every one he worked in as seen from him in The Attitude Era, The Ruthless Aggression Era and the current one.
