Re: Official DVD/Match/Show Discussion Thread
I dunno, I think Savage is great and when he's channeling the cocaine induced sleazebag from Memphis and '97 WCW vs DDP he's one of my absolute favourites guys to watch as he plays a convincing psychopath as well as anyone in wrestling has ever done. But well, when I see a 'favourite' list as opposed to an outright 'best' list I look it as more guys who's matches I could watch for an entire day and not get bored. Not trying to say Savage is a guy I would tire watching of, but well someone like Arn just has an erray of tricks in his bag whatever the match or setting to keep me hooked to the point that if you found me 10 Arn matches vs 10 Savage matches I'd probably be more excited in watching the Arn matches.
fwiw on my list I'd be inclined to think everyone of them would end up higher than Savage if I was asked to name the 'best' wrestlers. Again not a knock on Savage but more praise and recognition for how good the others are. Regal, Dustin and Finlay might stick out of the 10 as the most curious to some, but well Regal and Finlay feel infinitely complete as workers and Dustin is one of my absolute favourites. Such an overlooked talent.
Dibiase is actually someone I forgot. I was about to say his best stuff came outside of WWF, but fuck I've listed Dustin, Lawler, Funk, Vader, Steamboat, Arn & Vader. Again just watching his Mid South stuff as a babyface or heel its astounding how he still attracts discussion that his personality and charisma was all he had. He's a brilliant brawler and worker in general and one of the best Mid South had to offer in their time.
