Hey, everyone!

I hope you all have recharged your batteries from the last ratings edition a few weeks ago because now we're reviving it for this thread! I'll be taking over for this one, so here we go!

Unfortunately for Bret Hart, he finished last on the Classic Superstars category. However, he did get a fairly good overall rating at 8.1; which means he'd be in 4th place on the Current Roster category under AJ Styles. Unsurprisingly, Bret's In-Ring Ability is the highest one rated for him at 9.7, which means he is 2nd place in the Classic Superstar category under Shawn Michaels. However, his mic skills rating did hurt him since it is the lowest one in that same category.

Here are the updated standings.

Classics:
Steve Austin: 9.4 (Look/Presence 9.4, Charisma 9.9, In-Ring 8.7, Mic Skills 9.7)
Shawn Michaels: 8.9 (Look/Presence 8.5, Charisma 9.4, In-Ring 9.9, Mic Skills 7.8)
The Undertaker: 8.5 (Look/Presence 9.8, Charisma 8.9, In-Ring 8.1, Mic Skills 7.0)
Triple H: 8.4 (Look/Presence 9.2, Charisma 8.2, In-Ring 7.6, Mic Skills 8.5)
Bret Hart: 8.1 (Look/Presence 8.2, Charisma 7.7, In-RIng 9.7, Mic Skills 6.6)

Current Roster:
John Cena: 8.5 (Look/Presence 8.7, Charisma 9.1, In-Ring 7.3, Mic Skills 9.0)
Chris Jericho: 8.5 (Look/Presence 7.2, Charisma 9.5, In-Ring 7.4, Mic Skills 9.8)
AJ Styles: 8.3 (Look/Presence 7.8, Charisma 8.4, In-Ring 9.9, Mic Skills 7.1)
Bray Wyatt: 7.7 (Look/Presence 7.8, Charisma 8.2, In-Ring 6.1, Mic Skills 8.6)
The Miz: 7.6 (Look/Presence 6.8, Charisma 8.4, In-Ring 6.1, Mic Skills 9.2)
Brock Lesnar: 7.5 (Look/Presence 9.7, Charisma 8.2, In-Ring 7.8, Mic Skills 4.2)

CM Punk:

Look/Presence: 6/10

In-Ring Ability: 9/10

Charisma: 8/10

Mic Skills: 7/10 I honestly think he's overrated here. Red rep incoming lol...But he's always lauded in elite company when I can think of dozens of guys who were way better. He had one pipe bomb and then was out of ammunition IMO.

Heck there have been hundreds of WWE who could have delivered that pipe bomb just as well. And that's a fact. But CM Punk got to do it.

I dunno man I think you're undervaluing him here quite a lot. His pipe bomb...okay yeah you may have a point on that (I disagree personally), but his mic work all throughout 2011 was full to the brim with conviction, passion, hostility and sprinkles of humour. When he spoke, people listened. He never once missed a beat and he never stumbled over his words.

He may have run dry towards the end of his heel run as champion but that's what happens when you've over exposed in a modern day product which never stops. His verbal jousting with Rock in 2013 is still some of the finest work I've seen from a heel in the modern era.

Fair enough....too each his/her own. I just think a 7 out of ten is pretty lofty. I don't give high marks on mic skills to just anyone. 7 is still pretty good. But I just don't hold him in as high a regard as guys like Rhodes, Anderson, Lawler etc....He was truly given a far looser leash than guys who could have done similar things. Jericho given the same leash? Heck if the Rock could have talked to management the way Punk was able to. Lets put this in perspective. Maybe I am wrong but I did not think he was as fluid as some of the greats....at all.

i think in some aspects this guys wildly overrated, however i no longer hate him after going through some of the stuff he did in that late 2012/2013 period
agree with @Greenlawler as well. you can give that pipebomb to any competent mic worker and its considered a fantastic promo

look 6
charisma 8
ring 9 (his best attribute imo, he was fucking good in the ring and had something i look for in a star. people popped for his signatures all the time and he could adapt for every style)
mic 8 (he has a good delivery as a face or heel, ill give him that, but he was given some really juicy material for this era, would he have stood out if everyone was? im not so sure)
