'Funny' is a very broad term, so I'm looking for anything here. Which is the wrestler who made you laugh the most, be it through interviews, facial expressions, ringwork (please, no "Heidenreich's work always makes me laugh"-esque posts) or anything else.

On a consistent basis, probably Kurt Angle (not so much these days, but a couple of years ago).

The single funniest incident, to me, was probably when Kanyon Kanyon Cuttered Mike Sanders backstage after Sanders had been punked out by both Jeff Jarrett and (IIRC) Daffney.

I loved that angle when Kanyon was just going around giving people the Kanyon Cutter. There'd be a exterior shot of the building after they came back from commercial or something, and you'd see Kanyon run in and KC some random pedestrian. Always made me laugh.

Kurt Angle. His singing JMMY CRACK CORN AND I DON'T CARE (wearing that mini stetson) was absolutely nuts.

Psycho Sid gave me many, many belly laughs just about every time he was given a mic.

Dusty, as well, because he just had a way with the english language like no one else.

Kevin Nash and Scott Hall, however, will win hands down cause they really know how to work a crowd. They could have you eating crap outta their hands and you'd be asking for more. Their mic work, from the moment Hall stepped foot on Nitro, was golden.

I'm tempted to say the Rock for his large body of work dating back to when he gave Faarooq a gigantic photo of himself. However, I think I have to go with heel Stone Cold circa Invasion 2001. I guess Kurt Angle should also get Honorable Mention for adding to a lot of those skits during the summer.

Mick Foley was also funny. But that was in more of a regular guy making smart remarks type of way rather than a funny over the top wrestling personality.

Proabaly Stone Cold back in 2001. His interactions with Debra, Vince, Angle and the Alliance were priceless. Of course the birth of What? was hilarious. The Rock back in 1999/2000 was very entertaining. That Austin/Rock segment before the Survivor Series in 01 was up there as one of the funniest segments ever.

I'll have to go with Jericho, if only because I can think all the way back to "Chris Jericho, Conspiracy Victim", "Stinko Malenko", "The Man of 1,003 Holds" (#59 - ARMBAR), "The Strangler Lewis Exception", etc. Mostly I'm giving him credit for doing then what he seems to be doing today - booking his own programs because the people in charge for most of the last 10 years or so really haven't had anything for him. I could be way off base with that assumption, but Jericho's stuff just seems too wild for it to come from a booking committee.

A very, VERY close second goes to Bobby "the Brain" Heenan. Brain and Gorilla are still my favorite announce team.

The Rock.
The guy has great timing. His reactions and expressions are great. Just watch Halftime Heat, the way he answers a ringing phone mid-brawl. His "What in the Blue Hell?" reaction to Michael Cole in interviews. His imitations of five opponents in a row during a promo.
I would love to see him come back and feud with HBK for the promos alone.

Runner up: Goldust when he was teamed with Booker T.

The Big Show cracks me up something fierce every time he appears on Conan O'Brien.

Kurt Angle is insanely funny too, and he tempers it by being alternately hilarious and badass.

I have to go with Heenan. I have always had a laugh for the chicken heels ( Jericho kind of falls into that now) and when Heenan was wrestling, and managing, he was hilarias. Of course, we all know that once he started announcing, he may have become the funniest ever at that position.

Just a wrestler? Iron Mike Sharpe. I used to DIE at his screams and facial expressions.

So many come to mind. I agree with those who listed Heenan, Austin, Angle and Foley, as all of them have had me in stitches at various points over the years. Going to add two more, though:

- Owen Hart. Forgetting the man's reputation as a pratical joker (which none of us really knew about until after he had passed on), Owen could do really subtle things and have me laughing out loud. The time he accepted his second Slammy Award, for example, even though he wasn't nominated. Or there was one backstage sketch near the end of his career, and someone came to his locker room looking for (I think it was) Steve Austin and Owen said "Don't ask me. I'm retired." Classic stuff.

- Rowdy Roddy Piper, circa 1985-87. Yes, his material is definitely worn out now, but some of the tangents Piper went off on back in the day were downright hilarious.

Jericho would probably be my choice, dating back to the Goldberg "feud" and his battles with Prince Nackymacky and Dean-o Machin-o.

The hardest laugh I ever had watching wrestling, though, is from Bret Hart in WCW, after Mean Gene seemed skeptical of Bret's newly named number one contender for the U.S. Title: "Who are you to question El Dandy?!"

The midget Sky Low Low. Honorable mention goes to the late, legendary Classy Freddie Blassie.

HHH can be funny as hell when he wants to be, and William Regal is perhaps second only to Vincent Kennedy McMahon when it comes to funny (staying in character) facial expressions.
