Yea, that's right, everyone. I have good news! This is the first ratings thread in June. We're halfway done with the year already, which means that I am NOW bringing back some classic legendary names into the vote poll. 5 of those include some male legends. There's also the rest of the options for you folks to vote as well the next time we do these threads. That's not all though. I have more good news to come. All of you will find out very soon ;)

Now that my announcement is out of the way, I want to remind all of you folks that it is now time to rate another current superstar. I'd like to thank those who participated in my previous thread. Remember that all of your votes DO matter, but please just try to be objective. Let's also try to get as many responses here as possible now :eek:

Dolph Ziggler ended up being ranked at 11th place in the current section. Unfortunately for Ziggler, the rating for his mic skills hurt him dramatically. However, the Showoff did receive a pretty good score based off his in-ring ability. It turns out that Ziggler is now tied with Randy Orton at 8th place for having the best in-ring ability in the current section so far.

Here are the updated standings:

Today we will rate Rusev since he won the previous poll. This is your turn to vote. Make sure to keep up!

Please set each quality in this order (Look/Presence, In-Ring Ability, Charisma, Mic Skills), so it'll be easier to count your votes :)

NOTE: If you feel like you missed out on a previous rating thread of a superstar, then it is NOT too late!! I am still willing to count any of your votes for any old rating threads from this year. You folks have until the END OF THIS DECEMBER to do this; so just be sure to let me know which old rating thread you want me to include your vote in, and just be sure that it's from a thread in 2019. If you even feel like bumping up any of my older rating threads, then go right on ahead! My rankings are based off the MOST UPDATED standings. The MORE votes that are included to ALL of this, the MORE accurate the results will be :D

Edit: Don't forget that the poll is MULTIPLE CHOICE.

Charisma: 8
Mic Skills: 8

He's a solid performer and knows how to tell a good story in the ring. He reminds me of Moxley; a talented performer who the WWE has no idea how to use or book.

look/presence: 8 dude actually looks really good and believable and is able to stand out in that regard.

in-ring ability: 7 not one of the all time greats but easily capable of having good matches with a good amount of talent

Charisma: 6.5 he has some natural charm but it isn't great enough to keep the fans interested in him in spite of WWE's poor booking hence the lower rating.

Mic Skills: 7 Actually really good and funny on the mic when he wants to be though he barely ever gets a chance to show it. Not someone I'd have cutting those opening 20 minute promos but someone who you give him 5 minutes and he's good enough to get the crowd going.

Overall a very solid talent and one that I feel is criminally underutilised by WWE due to a problem with them I constantly bring up and it's the fact they can't book a midcard whatsoever. If they had a proper midcard this guy could be a major player in it constantly in the title hunt for the midcard belts and maybe as a transitional champion in the main event to up his credibility when he puts over a future real main eventer (a role that means nothing in modern WWE but if handled right is actually quite important and a good one to get)

Look/Presence: 7.5 - I'd separate them and give him an 8 on look. He's a throwback to big guys old, Bruno, Crusher, etc. in his look. Today that is a unique look - 8. Presence - it shows on him how beat down he is, a 7 on Presence averaging to a 7.5 on both.

In Ring Ability: 7/10 - nothing fancy, but it gets the job done and is a good, believable moveset for him.

Charisma: 7/10 - I'm a little optimistic on this. They've been so hesitant to let him open up, but I think there is more in him.

Mic Skills: 7/10 - Kind of like charisma, they never really let him cut loose here.

One of WWE's better all-around performers. A real shame they either misuse, abuse or ignore him most of the time.
