    *Official* Pro-Wrestling Thread II

    So, time for part two. I have asked for the previous one closed as suggested by Jack.

    Seeing as its a new thread let's do a quick WWE title roll call.

    WWE Champion: John Cena
    World Heavyweight Champion: Randy Orton
    US Champion: Kofi Kingston
    IC Champion: Wade Barrett
    Tag Champs: Big Show and Kane
    Divas Champ: Brie Bella (I think it's Brie anyway)

    I think Sting is TNA Champ, no idea about ROH.

    Anyway, as you were...

    A match between Rey Mysterio and Sin Cara would be the most amazing spectacle ever.

    That's my only current thought.

    Good to see a new thread. Now where were we?

    I didn't even realise who the US and IC Champions were. A far cry from when the IC Championship was the second most prestigious belt on the show.

    Also interesting news that TNA Wrestling is rebranding itself to Impact Wrestling. Not sure what I think of the rebranding but TNA was a name that people never took seriously anyway and after 9 years has really failed to be recognised amongst casual viewers.

    They are making 'Wrestling Matters their slogan, too. A shot at WWE, basically.

    What TNA don't realise is that WWE are better than them for both wrestling and entertainment.

    Been very impressed with Sin Cara so far. He had a great match with Daniel Bryan on Smackdown.

    So where does he place in your all-time rankings? I stopped following Wrestling after the 1990's, so my judgment is limited to who I remember, but I have him in my top 5.

    In terms of pure favourites, he makes my top 5. I wouldn't have him in an 'objective' top 5 per se. But favourites? In no order, you've got him, Shawn, Rock, Jericho and Cena, for me personally.

    Yeah meant more in terms of “favorites”. Even when I did follow Wrestling, I wasn’t a hard core fan, so I wouldn’t be able to tell you “objectively” who’s a top 5 candidate anyway. My favorites would be Hogan, Macho Man, Brett Hart, Ultimate Warrior, and The Undertaker. Probably outside of the mainstream consensus, but there you have it.

    Nah, if you watched up to the 90s then you certainly wouldn't be alone with those picks

    so gutted about that, Macho Man was so awesome. His matches against Ricky Steamboat for the IC belt were amazing.

    RIP Macho Man. It's horrible news. He'll definitely go down as one of the all time greats and he's well deserving of a spot in the WWE Hall of Fame.

    The HOF will surely happen next year. Might have done anyway with it being in Florida and their stance on him seemingly cooling over the past couple of years (the DVD - which is awesome, and the fact he was included on the new game and they promoted that fact on Raw).

    I wonder who will/would induct him though.Steamboat?

    ****, that's terrible to hear. Waited for years to see the Miss Macho Man (.com) contest. "So Stephanie McMahon get ready for the kid!". RIP.

    Horrible news. So many memories.

    Only a few days ago I made a post saying I had watched some classic Macho Man promos in the old wrestling thread.

    RIP
