I don't see too many topics dedicated to cruiserweights so I guess I'll start a trend of making topics based on smaller performers. Let's start with a basic top 10.

#10-Psychosis
#9-Eddie Guerrero
#8-Chris Jericho
#7-Super Crazy
#6-Tajiri
#5-Juventud Guerrera (The Juuuuice!!)
#4-Taka Michinoku
#3-Jushin Thunder Liger
#2-Ultimo Dragon
#1-Rey Mysterio

May want to rename your thread if you mean lucha-style wrestlers.

Because if you just mean guys around the cruiserweight range, and you don't have Malenko listed, BAH GAWD.

My personal favourites

1) Rey Mysterio
2) Ultimo Dragon
3) Eddie Guerrero
4) Tajari
5) Dean Malenko
6) Gregory Helms (either as Hurricane, Gregory or Shane)
7) Chavo Guerrero Jnr
8) Psychosis
9) Billy Kidman
10) X Pac

Never watched much of Liger so couldn't place him on the list

The fact these guys had by far the best random-group tag team in WWE history may cloud my judgement, but they seemed really similar, even before and after their tag team work. If anyone was to rate them on a list I'd really have expected them to be close. Enlighten me?

Keep in mind that I am not including Puroresu Junior Heavyweights. My list would be a hell of a lot different if I included Dynamite Kid, Tiger Mask I, Koji Kanemoto and others.

I don't care for lists as long as "The man of a thousand holds" or "The iceman" Dean Malenko is number one!

Best cruiserweight, and one of the best technician of all time

Any list that doesn't have Rey Mysterio in the top 3 is flawed. The guy is a pioneer in Cruiserweight wrestling.

One wrestler that i believe doesn't get enough praise and attention that he does deserve is La Parka. He was a great unique talent and I always enjoyed him, especially when he played the air guitar
