Greatest In Ring Performer of All Time?

This has probably been done before but couldn't find it.

Who do you guys think is the greatest wrestler of all time based on in ring talent. Not mic skills, not charisma, not even accomplishments. I'm talking the best WRESTLER of all time.

Personally, I can't say. I know there's a lot of guys from the old days that I haven't seen wrestle like Sammartino, Eddie Guerrero, the Von Erichs, the Harts(though I have seen one or two full length Bret Hart matches), etc.

So, what do you think?

I can't name just one man because it's very hard to compare, for example, Jericho and Sammartino. That's why I will divide the greatest permormers in decades.
40s-50s - Lou Thesz
60s-70s - Bruno Sammartino
80s - Bret Hart
90s - Shawn Michaels/Bret Hart
00s - Chris Jericho/Kurt Angle

Note: this is based solely on US wrestling.
