Nice responses, I will tell you how I split them up when I get a certain number of votes
List A - technicians (-Masters and Smith) (actually, it's probably just a list of guys with submission finishers, but then Jericho probably shouldn't be on that list)
List B - powerhouses
List C - high flyers/athletes
List D - guys who were destined to be wrestlers/wanted to be wrestlers as a kid?

if A is ring skill, which it looks like, why the hell is Chris Masters there? he's above average at best. DH Smith isn't that great either.
B i'm assuming is power, although those are all very different variations of power.
C is agile, possible aerial attacks and the like, more spotty wrestlers in that list (not saying they are spot monkeys, they just perform more spots than others)
and D is the only one i can't really decide, cuz if its for promos, then you really, really fucked that one up with Orton, DiBiase, and McIntyre.


as for wrestling-wise, list D or A. a lot of them have way too many medicore-ness to make an easy decision.

Nothing is promo wise, people are getting close. D is tough because I used it as a catch-all for the ones who didn't fit, there was some who didn't even fit my mold for D.

D is mostly suplexes facebusters and DDT variants.

Ah, so that explains why I was automatically drawn to list D. DDTs have always looked like the coolest wrestling moves to me personally.

Interesting thread.

Take out DiBiase and Ziggler and it becomes the 'guys who make you land on your face' group.

List A has pretty good wrestlers but I'm not a big fan of technical wrestling so I only like watching Jericho's and Bryan's matches. I like Del Rio's as well but that's mainly due to his character not to his wrestling.

From list B I only like watching Sheamus, Kane is slow nowadays and his matches are a sore to watch. Cena while being the best of the bunch can't say I'm a fan of his wrestling and while Swagger might be good he's a poormans Kurt Angle.

I don't care for anyone's wrestling on list C.

From list D I only like watching CM Punk and Triple H wrestle.

When I try to enjoy a match it's hard for me to separate a wrestler's ring abilities from his character, if I don't like/care for the wrestler's character it's hard for me to care for his matches as well.

I ended up not voting.
