Most extremely tall freaks were shit and the really really fat ones, to sum it all up basically.

He is a veteran in the business though, so he can teach those rookies a lot.

Yoko was a great big man wrestler and whether or not there were many other better big men in wrestling (which there were), it doesn't change what I like about him. He was an awesome squash wrestler and everything he did looked brutal, like it could actually end a career if hit right (or wrong, I guess. He was a heel, though, so.....hit right, then?). He used simple moves that any average wrestler could use, but because of his size they felt like so much of a bigger deal. Owen Hart hits a leg drop it's just a leg drop. Yoko hits a leg drop and it's a thousand kilos of beef squashing a dude on the head and the face can sell it like so much more than a mere leg drop.

He was also really great at selling. For a guy so big to take the tumbling through the ropes bump, he did it super. He bumped around more than someone of that immense obesity should be able to. His weeble-wobble selling whenever the face is trying to knock him down is probably my favourite thing about the guy. Feels like a huge moment when he's actually taken down.

I can totally understand why people don;t think much of Yoko and it took me a while to come around on him, but I just don't possibly see any reasonable argument for him being one of the worst ever.

And the fireball to Hogan's face was pretty obviously Hogan not wanting to drop the Title clean. And Taker was taking time off because his wife was having a baby. Methinks.

Re: Worst Wrestlers?

Surprised no one mentioned The Ultimate Warrior yet. I liked his gimmick, and it limited his in-ring performance a bit I think.

Another wrestler people fail to mention IMO is Hacksaw Jim Duggan. The guy had a huge following due to him being a bit charismatic, carrying that US flag and chanting USA all the time. But inside the ring. He was jsut a borefest of epic proportions. The only half greatt match he ever had in WWF was against Ted DiBiase at WM 4, and that is to 95% DiBiases credit. As for his stint in WCW, it totally sucked. As for his pre WWF days in UWF and other places, I cannot comment, since I have not seen it.

Re: Worst Wrestlers?

Duggan was a legitimately great wrestler before he came to the WWF. If he stayed at that level his whole career he could have been one of the best brawlers of all time.

Because Taker is a great worker and has the ability to make shit look like gold.
