As for the thread, no.

George brought mainstream to the business in the early days, Thesz innovated moves and was a pioneer to many in ring aspects, Sammartino was the biggest domestic and consistent drawing card of all time, Hogan was able to put wrestling on the map worldwide and broke all records domestically, Hogan started the second boom with Hall and Nash and the nWo storyline. Austin took it and sparked it even more on the WWF side and was able to turn profits as a true game changer. Rock started his rise, took over after only 3 years as an active worker, transcended the industry like no one else, gave the product more exposure than ever before, and on top of that, broke all their records IN the wrestling business and had the biggest year for any wrestler in history, along with the greatest year for any company ever on his back. Continued his meteoric success after his full time career, came back and broke HIS records after a decade. Became bigger than the industry itself, a worldwide media entertainment brand and is a more recognized figure than the WWE logo. Impacted the entire concept of what an entertaining wrestler should be, on what you can verbally do as a character, on The People's Elbow versions you saw over the years, on the fact that the Top guy in the business today was an attempt to create another megastar performer and mainstream personality that will be able to come close to his caliber. He inspired a new generation of superstars who became wrestlers because of him and tried to put his magic touch in different aspects of their work, from their arsenal to the way they're trying to carry themselves to the mic time they get. When you say wrestling, you say The Rock, you say Dwayne Johnson, or at worse, 5/10 you say Hulk Hogan. The Rock is untouchable as The GOAT because he made it on the highest level in and out, which is why anything "Wrestling" without his name on it is a big and clear No.
You're fucking annoying. Rock didn't change the business. He somewhat took over from Austin, but he didn't usher in a whole new era.

Stop being such a fanboy.

If you look at Hogan's records and impressive as they are, along comes a Stone Cold Steve Austin who shatters all of those records and obliterates them, and after Stone Cold there then comes along.......... so will see. In this businees theres always someone to exceed someone else and someone always rises to the occasion.

-

Vincent Kennedy McMahon states Hogan's records were broken by Austin.

Rock flowed the success of stone cold in 2000. After three hot years and with WCW becoming what it became any top face could of enjoyed the records set that year. If stone cold was around in 2000 for the whole year thEn he would of had the same if not bigger success. Austin built the momentum for that year. He made wrestling cool again and mainstream. Rock made it more mainstream but austin laid the ground work. Austin deserves his place as one of the four. Without Austin no rock 2000.

Don't know how Superstar Billy Graham's name hasn't been brought up considering he influenced Hulk Hogan, HHH, Jesse The Body, etc and his impact on the character aspect in wrestling.

Have to agree. Superstar Billy Graham was the prototype for the modern pro wrestler.
