Forget that Flair and Cena have won 16 World Championships. Forget that Hogan Austin Rock and Cena are the four most popular wrestlers ever...just from an in ring perspective, who is the best? My pick is HBK.
Toshiaki Kawada - Best seller of all time, best offensive wrestler of all time, incredibly versatile, has some of the greatest matches ever as well as an incredibly long list of great matches that are unmatched to this day and an awesome gimmick. AND had a longer life shelf as a top wrestler than Misawa.
Ask me another day and I'd probably say Ric Flair.
