That Jake Roberts promo is fucking timeless.

Definitely anything Jake Roberts. He was in my opinion the best promo of all time and often fits outside the wrestling context. So may do "darkness" as a gimmick but Jake actually felt genuine, because he was in a dark place for real.

The intensity and anger that he shows in that promo is unmatched by anyone in wrestling ever. My friend who I watched wrestling with, who is a casual fan at best, sat in shock while watching that. That is the promo I'd show anybody who wanted to know what wrestling is about, absolute gold and The Rock was great as well.

A second choice would be any promo by Ric Flair, specifically "I will never retire!!" Haha. He is pure entertainment and I've never met anyone who hasn't liked him.
So good. It has been a little while since I had watched that promo. Punk didn't mark out and laugh like a lot of guys do/would when Rock went with his insults.

edit: Jake is one of the GOAT's I was watching his "Funeral Parlors" from 1991 recently when he went from losing Damien, to working with The Warrior and then to turning on him and attacking Savage. That period of time in WWF was a fun spark of dare I say attitude.

That promo is a 10/10 IMHO. Using that promo as a 10 on the scale I can't think of a promo since that was better than a 6 or 7 (and certainly not Cena/Roman when Roman legit forgets his lines).

Re: Recommended promos for a non-fan?

Thanks to all for the suggestions. I probably should've mentioned I'm selling them on the idea wrestling doesn't always have to be lowbrow... So as much as I appreciate it, I may have to pass on the whole Coach molesting cows stuff...

If anyone has the ECW Cactus Jack promo on the Mick Foley's Greatest Hits and Misses DVD titled "Anti-Hardcore", that would be great - I cannot seem to find it online.

Re: Recommended promos for a non-fan?

I really think the "End of an Era" or even the more recent HHH/HBK/Undertaker promos are excellent examples.

Festival of friendship is also great, but you may have to explain the list

Spoiler for GOAT Meeting:

No doubt, he held his own against The Rock, I can't think of anybody whose done better against him excluding Austin. Truly one of the greatest mic workers of all time. Sorely missed!!

Anything from The Rock. And chuck a Seth Rollins promo in there too so she can see the difference between a great promo and whatever garbage tier Rollins fits into.

You can catch me, Rih, in the new La Ferrar'
