If you started your own promotion, and got to choose any wrestler in the world to be on your roster, who would you pick?

For the sake of argument, lets say the following rules must be followed.

No dead wrestlers

No wrestlers who are outright too old to perform

Injured wrestlers are permitted. So Bryan Danielson, Richie Steamboat, etc... Just assume they are in shape to perform.

No more than 50-60 on your roster, counting members of tag teams/factions individually
