As Bryan Alvarez said, don't bother getting worked-up over this.

 

As you said Inno, what else could/can we expect from Vince?. The scary thing is, Bruce Pritchard isn't even in the company anymore!

Criteria?...i'd imagine it's like the Hall of Fame; a few office guys come up with a few names, and then Vince decides. I can't decide if the office guys or WWE fans have the worst knowlege of pro wrestling history.

I meant more to decide the order of the list, as opposed to who is on it. It's a WWE list, so the people on the list will always be a bit off.

It's just a piss take nothing list, theres no point in trying to work out why its in the order it is, its that way because McMahon wants it that way.

Edge outranks Hogan? Really :lol

Then again if it's their top "superstars" you could make the arguement it's since they introduced the term and Hogan was a wrestler for most of his career. You could but it'd be wrong I guess.

All good entertainers/wrestlers but Hogan should be in the top ten.

Simple logic with this is that Hogan, Hardy, Flair, Foley and Angle should all be higher on this list, hell Hogan has a right to be considered number 1 (and I don't particulary like Hogan) such is the fact that the WWE's rise in the 80's was on his back.

 

Point is, as they are TNA talent now they have been put in those positions by whoever at the WWE as a petty insult.

 

The reason Michaels and Taker, as great as they are, are 1 and 2 is due to loyality to the company. Austin, Hogan and Rock should be the top 3 and Taker and HBK should be 4 and 5.

 

Also no Brock Lesnar? Really petty lol.

I think a top 3 of Michaels, Hogan and Austin would be about right. The order? That's for someone else to argue over ;)

 

Michaels before The Rock?

For me it would be Austin, Rock, Hogan, HBK and then Taker in that order which is based on the numbers they drew in terms of ratings, livegate, merchindise and PPV money then paired with the matches they had that I have enjoyed.

 

But the top three is very close as all were mega draws in their prime but the personal enjoyment of Austin and Rock's matches in their prime put them above Hogan for me.
