I’m not a guy who has any sort of link to the wrestling business or the people in it. Still, I think I could put together a better list than the politically-influenced 50 Greatest Superstars list the WWE put out over a year ago.
The minute it came out, it received tons of attention—and not for the right reasons. So many people were too high or low, some people weren’t in it that should’ve been, while others were in it who shouldn’t have been.
That list is titled WWE right? Then why are there so many guys from the AWA, NWA, WCW, etc. who barely or never wrestled in the WWE at all? Guys like Nick Bockwinkel or Jack Brisco never wrestled for the WWE, while Dusty Rhodes, Harley Race, Dory Funk, Jr. and Terry Funk had terrible runs in the WWE. Gorgeous George was basically retired when the WWE was formed.
I realize Vince respects these guys, and rightfully so; they all had excellent careers.
But did they have to be in a DVD titled WWE’s 50 Greatest Superstars? I know my list won’t be perfect and a lot will disagree with it, and that’s fine. It’s your opinion, I’m just telling you mine.
