Hulk Hogan not at 1?
Stone Cold not in top 3?
Eddie Guerrero over HHH and HBK?
The Rock at 34?

I don't agree with your list

I don't agree with your list
- The list ranks the complete packages of wrestlers; Hulk Hogan is great, but clearly there were better.
- Same story with Steve Austin.
- Eddie was a far better package than Triple H and Shawn Michaels, if you ask me.
- Too many Rock marks 'round here.

Well, your 150 picks are good. But the order seems way off.

Chavo is only on this list because he's a Guerrero. If his name was Chavo James he wouldn't be top 500... in my opinion, of course

I think it's cool you compiled this list and included some all-time guys on it.

1. Londos is really low. It's hard to weigh guys pre-tv on "in-ring skill, mic work, etc." with little to no footage. What we do know is he was a ridiculously huge draw and star. Think Hogan-level.

2. Sting at 8 or wherever he was placed is about the most confusing and largest red flag I've ever seen, unless we're factoring character's gullibility into the mix; where he stands out a King among kings.
