My top 5 is pretty simple and self-explanatory. The top 5 on the mic dont reflect my top 5 favorites of all time per se(my top 2 is basically that, just in reverse order).

1. The Rock- Just youtube some of his promos, especially his Corporate Rock and Hollywood Rock promos to see what I mean.

2. Stone Cold Steve Austin- I debated on whether he or Rock were better. Rock's energy is what made him my no. 1 and command of the crowd.

3. Mick Foley- ECW and Mankind promos sealed the deal as did his last WWE promo with Edge.

4. Kurt Angle- Kurt in WWE through 2000-2002 was the best mic working heel, hands down.

5. Ric Flair- The icon, the original, the measuring stick perhaps on the mic. I've seen most of his old promos and I can attest to Flair being a top 5 on the mic of all time. So much charisma.

1. Mick Foley

The rest in no real order:

Bobby Heenan
Jim Cornette
Ric Flair
Jake Roberts

And I'll probably kick myself later for completely forgetting someone. Just writing this I remembered about Heyman, but I'm not sure I would put him in the top 5 of all time. Top 10 definitely.

Undertaker on the mic? I dont know, he doesnt really speak much to be honest so I never thought of him. I mean, Paul Bearer used to do the talking, then he started doing it, but it was standard RIP, taking your soul shit.

Jericho
The Rock
Stone Cold
Angle
Ric Flair

I have only seen some of Foley's promos, but they were top notch. If I see more like them, he will probably elevate himself onto that list. Heel Cena promos were great. I liked Angle's promos in the WWE, especially when he sang, but his TNA mic skills have just been bad. If Christian were a main event player, I would put him up here as well.
