Seems like you're the one excited.


And just want to ask if you listed the Corporation, why would you list the McMahon's separate?
same reason why i listed Triple H & DX separate, they did other memorable things than that stable in my view

Re: The 20 Icons of the Attitude Era

Yeah, I would have had The Undertaker a little higher. His angle and character were one of the highlights of many a "RAW" during the Attitude Era.

Re: The 20 Icons of the Attitude Era

One of the better lists to come out of wwe.com

You couldn't really argue with the top 10 much at all.

Re: The 20 Icons of the Attitude Era

One of the few lists from WWE.com that I'm happy with. Can't really disagree much with it. May of moved certain guys higher or lower on the list, but other than that it's a solid list.

"Sigh" another mysterious list that's kiss ass heavy everyone on that list has been in a top 5 of another list. I don't disagree wit the picks but Jim Ross needs to be in the top 5. Why not only was he an announcer but he did hire most of the top draws in that era as his job as talent and relations. Sable, Russeo,Val Venis,Too Cool and chyna are also list worthy

Re: The 20 Icons of the Attitude Era

Everyone that should be on the list is on it. My opinion, Austin, Bret, and Shawn should be 1 2 and 3.

I'm one of the biggest Undertaker fans on this board, but I don't know how much higher he would be. His career began well before the Attitude Era and lasted well beyond it, so most fans don't tie him to just that era. Austin, The Rock and Triple H are hands down the top 3, and Mr McMahon has got to be the 4th with them. But part of me wants to put DX at 3rd instead of Triple H or HBK because their juvenile bullshit was virtually as great as Austin and The Rock IMO.

I'd consider Undertaker over HBK and maybe Mick Foley, but that's it, if that. For just the Attitude Era - top 4 should of been Austin, Rock, Triple H, McMahon. After that, Taker, HBK and Foley in some order. Kane above the New Age Outlaws too.

Bret Hart was great, but Bret is not above The Rock and a lot of people on that list, arguing the Attitude Era specifically. He left for WCW halfway through the era, and wasted away because they had no clue how to use him there. If you counted the New Generation era as well, then I would gladly say Bret Hart has a strong argument for the Top 5.

Re: The 20 Icons of the Attitude Era

1.Austin
2.Rock
3.Mr.Mcmahon
4.Triple H
5.Mankind

This is my top 5 of Attitude Era.

Austin vs Bret started the Attitude Era IMO.

Funny,an Austin vs Rock war hasn't started

Bret ahead of Rocky, VKM, Taker, Kane, Foley, and HHH? No way man, Bret helped kick-start the AE, but that was it.. These guys maintained, solidified and immortalized the AE.

Re: The 20 Icons of the Attitude Era

That's actually areally nice list. I'd put DX together and maybe take Goldust out and switch in Too Cool, Sable, and maybe JOB Squad.
