The recent spate of activity in the wrestling thread got me thinking this would be a good idea, plus it's a battle thread we haven't already done, which is a rarity. What's a good number of guys to include? Maybe 64, or is that not enough? There's a fair few guys who are certainties to be included, so I'll list them now and then take suggestions for the rest of the competitors.
André The Giant (R.I.P.)
'The Game' Triple H
'The Immortal' Sting
'Stone Cold' Steve Austin
'The Heartbreak Kid' Shawn Michaels
Bret 'The Hitman' Hart
Eddie Guerrero (R.I.P.)
Chris Benoit (Erm...)
The Ultimate Warrior
'Macho Man' Randy Savage
'The Hardcore Legend' Mick Foley
'Y2J' Chris Jericho
'The Whole F'n Show' Rob Van Dam
'The Legend Killer' Randy Orton
'Five-Time WCW Champion' Booker T
'The American Dream' Dusty Rhodes
Bubba Ray Dudley
'The British Bulldog' Davey Boy Smith (R.I.P.)
'Mr.Perfect' Curt Hennig (R.I.P.)
'The Million Dollar Man' Ted DiBiase
'Ravishing' Rick Rude (R.I.P.)
Jake 'The Snake' Roberts
Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat
I'm not gonna be able to enforce any strict rules about when the voting period ends etc, because of how irregular my internet access is, but we'll just say that voting is open until I declare it closed, which'll be after everyone who wants a vote has had a decent enough chance to get one. I'm not gonna be closing battles after one vote just so my favourite guy wins.
Tag teams and stables are not eligible, although if someone wants to put The Dudleyz or the Hardys or anyone else in then there's no reason why they can't both be put in and voted for separately.
So, suggestions for other names? There were plenty I can think of who were maybes, but I thought I'd leave it up to others. One other thing I thought I'd say is that we're not voting on technical ability, or mic ability, just purely on one thing - entertainment. You're voting for the guy you most enjoy watching, for any reason.
