Big Show and Kane by a long, long margin.

There seemed to be a point where Big Show was turned on a weekly basis (it wasn't quite that often, it just felt like it was).

Yes Big Show how did I miss him? Obviously he is one of these guys.

Also I agree with Kane, Stlyes and Jericho. There are some other good calls on the thread, but those stand out to me.

AS for the Memphis area guys the more I think about it the more their quick turns made since. Idol, Mantell, Dundee, Landell, Rich, Valiant, even Lawler had a few quick changes back and forth. But in that context as a part of the story or mythos they were all so interconnected. They normally turned out of desire to be the man in the area, and they all were at various points of their careers. In a studio show where they could explain their actions and every one got mic time every week to promote weekly cards it made better sense.

Jim Ross, because he should of never been a heel. What were they thinking? Also JBL currently on commentary, who makes heelish statements and then completely goes face back and forth, sometimes in the same match towards the same guy!

Triple H and I think it hurt his legacy more than anything else IMO. Not necessarily the heel/face turns but the character turns. Yes, MOST of you will disagree. I'm not looking for an argument on this. Just stating how I feel about it.

1 minute he's the goofy dx guy. Then he's the corporation guy. Then he's the angry monster. Then he's back to being the goofy dx guy. Then he's the limo ridin guy with Flair. Then he's back to being the goofy dx guy. Then he's back to being the angry monster.

He switched back and forth so many times that it made it hard to suspend disbelief and believe that he was really the greatest at any point in time. Had he just consistently stuck with one character, preferably the angry monster character, I think he'd have 3x more believers than what he has

No need for argument here, very good thoughts.
