Default The "In Ring ability" Mount Rushmore

This stems from discussion about Hogan/Austin/Rock/Undertaker as the Mt Rushmore of Wrestling - Who would be on that Mount Rushmore for purely in ring ability? Forget gimmicks, based on skill and matches said person had.

There are a lot of options, but trying to narrow that to the top 4 of all time would be quite a challenge.

I have some names I believe would be listed more often than not. Some examples are:

Bret Hart
Owen Hart?
Kurt Angle
Chris Benoit
Eddie Guerrero
HBK
William Regal
Mr Perfect
Randy Orton
Chris Jericho
Ricky Steamboat
Dolph Ziggler
Ric Flair?
Daniel Bryan
Randy Savage
Dean Malenko
Jushin Liger
Kevin Nash
Dynamite Kid
Other

Can vote for more than 1 person, pick 4

There are some non WWE/WCW/TNA people such as Kenta Kobashi that might earn recognition, but I would imagine keep it within the federations a majority of people know.

Who would some of you place in the top 4?

Why wouldn't Stone Cold or Shawn Michaels be on there?

Seeing Kevin Nash leading the way at this moment made me legitimately LOL at work. Awesome.

Even though Stone Cold was a badass technical wrestler in the past, he's most well-known for his brawler style. HBK is just super flashy.

These guys are hardcore technical wrestlers till the day they die. Execution, precision, technical machines who will output the best maneuvers in efficient, quick and beautiful fashion. Their ring work is their work of art, and no one needed to ask them for anything more than that. That's in-ring ability.

You can argue why Dolph is in there, but the superstars that stand atop everyone else in "rushmore" for ring ability has an outstanding technical moveset, and great execution. That's what I believe.

Before the shaved head he was the ringmaster, and for a good reason. He put on a show with anyone and everyone. And my B, I was looking for his name not that.

Benoit

Those would be my top 4, coming from a "pure" wrestling standpoint.
