I'll take you down the only road I've ever been do
Punk has said a number of different people are the greatest on different occasions. Ho-hum.
I absolutely love these arguments over OPINIONS.
To Punk's credit, it's hard to argue with that statement.
As a total package, I would only put Stone Cold and maybe Flair in the same level as Eddie. He simply had it all.
Purely in-ring, Benoit is the only guy I would say is better than Eddie and even then, he didn't have the diversity that Eddie did in the ring. Eddie could play a sadistic heel, a comedic face and a sympathetic babyface as good as one another. Not many can do that so flawlessly.
Angle = GOAT
Eddie was great but it is annoying when some dies people go over the top. Eddie is nowhere best of all time. Kurt Angle was better than Eddie
What about The Rock?Eddie is tied with Macho Man as the most charismatic wrestler of all-time.
Don't get so bitchy. I'm a huge Eddie Guerrero fan, but in my opinion and i'd lie if i wasn't biased, I think Kurt Angle is the most talented performer i have ever watched. I definitely have Eddie in the top 3-5 range, though.Jesus Christ there are more of you. fpalmfpalmfpalm
I love how people are some how forgetting that even before Eddie died he was widely considered one of the best wrestlers ever. Flair says Eddie is one of the all time great performers in his book, which was written before Eddie died. Jericho says in an interview that was done before Eddie died "When Eddie is on, which was 95% of the time, nobody can touch him". Back in 1994-1995 when Heyman first introduced Eddie to the ECW locker room, he did it by saying "Hey guys I just wanted to introduce you to Eddy Guerrero, he's one of the very best performers in the entire world". This was in 1994-1995, before Eddie had even come close to reaching his potential. It wasn't a state secret that Eddie was great.
The thing is, the internet and having guys entire careers become suddenly easily accessible on sites like YouTube is why there is more support now for Eddie than ever. Now we can really go back and watch all of Eddie's work and fully appreciate how great he was.
That's what happened with Terry Funk for me. I always knew he was widely regarded as one of the best ever, but I just never saw much of him because he was before my time. Over the past year I've watched TONS of Terry Funk, and it's led me to believe he too is one of the all time greats. Does that mean that I'm only appreciating him because he doesn't wrestle anymore? Nope, it's just easier now than it has ever been to find a guys entire catalog and really dive into it.
