Re: Best spot monkey

Its totally Shane Mcmahon. Everybody else on this list can put on great matches even Jeff Hardy. Shane literally just jumped off stuff. Thats it. No wrestling ability at all. I have no clue why people are saying John Morrison. The guy was flashy but he really could wrestle. He put on some great matches in his WWE run.

Rey is an all-time great wrestler. I don't think he should be considered a spot monkey. The guy can put on a good match with anybody. His body of work throughout his career is amazing.

He can wrestle, but not in the conventional way that the IWC adores. Most people are talking technicians, masters of grappling and whatnot. Jeff Hardy is a great athlete but he's far from a technician.

Re: Best spot monkey

I think Shane did a great thing when he did those spots. I know some question the logic but think of it this way. At that time the Hardys, E+C and the Dudleys were constantly in TLC matches or cage matches on a weekly basis. Shane was very much in the back stage telling these wrestlers what to do and so he needed to lead by example.
