Daffney, Lita, and Jazz. And absolutely NOT Kiebler, Torrie, Sable, or any other clones thereof.
Reasoning: I'm an anime fan. Spunky, can-do girl power in the ring works for me. Especially when it's packaged in a way that does not emphasize bleached blonde hair bimbos. Unfortunately the only place to get great cruiserweight / martial arts women's action is in the WWE video games and even then you have to employ a series of hacks to get them fully integrated into the game's career modes.
Sure, they've got Angle (for a little while longer), Benoit, Mysterio, Brock, Benjamin, Haas and Mattitude, but the real reason I broke down and bought tickets for next week's Smackdown is because the Hulkster will almost assuredly be there, brother.
I also think I'm the Big Show's biggest fan. He's more than mobile enough for a guy his size and, hell, Andre the Giant never did much more than stand in the center of the ring and have people run into him and no one acts like you're strange when he's one of your all-time favorites...
I'm also into Three Minute Warning, although it may be for the badass CAW versions I made in Smackdown. I don't understand it. None of my other CAWs are completely invincible, but you don't fuck with fake Rosey and Jamal. Not to mention the fact that their three man entrance with Rico is the Thriller dance to the Billy and Chuck music.
Oh, and I liked Billy and Chuck, too.
AND D'Lo ruled six ways from Sunday and I didn't wait until he was released and jump on the bandwagon to say that.

My first welcome and its from the Ringmistress! And I thought you ditched him for Randy...
Much appreciated. Actually, I was thinking of doing them both for a while, but now that Randy's injured again, it's just me and that guy with the sunglasses again, LOL...
Hi, I'm the Ringmistress and I have a crush on the IWC's most hated man. Do strait jackets come in one size fits all?
Okay, there's a big list of people i like that are generally unliked that have already been mentioned. Undertaker, Kane, and the like.
Here's something though -- and I know i may be the only person in the world who feels this way, but I actually liked it when the NWO got too big.
Hogan, Hall, Nash, Syxx, Bischoff, Steiner, Bagwell, Hennig, Savage all those guys were great in the NWO and whatever. But the guys I always liked in the NWO were -- get this -- Scott Norton, Vincent, Bryan Adams, Bossman, Stevie Ray and the like. I was a huge NWO mark (though I had been watching wrestling all along -- even before NWO came about) and I rooted for the little guys just as much as I did the top level guys. I don't know, it seemed to make them more important.
The NWO DVD was alright, but I wanted to see the ENTIRE history of the NWO when they started adding people and the different incarnations -- I am the only one in the world who actually enjoyed that.
I think most of the people that are widely despised are disliked for good reasons most of the time. I always have arguments with casual wwe viewers about whether many of the (heel) wrestlers I like are good at wrestling, and I always have to explain that in the wwe there's a common malady which forces anyone who turns heel to forget how to wrestle or at least not wrestle anywhere near as well as they once did (Jericho, Tajiri, Rico, Cena, etc.) and it's very sad, because I really like these guys, and I wish they'd wrestle to their potential, ESPECIALLY Tajiri.
Isaac, welcome to the wienerboard. Saying that, I have to mention that I think Jericho has done better in-ring being a heel than when he was a face, but that's IMHO.
Guys who I liked that no one else did?
- Virgil, during the feud with The Million Dollar Man (didn't like him any other time though). - Stevie Ray doing colour (because suckas GOTSTOKNOW!). - The Ultimate Warrior, back in the day. - Jake the Snake, also back in the day. - Whenever Piper had the mic. - Goldberg during the streak.
Recently? The Dudleys I like, although many think they're "stale" (if they're so stale why do the crowd chant for them so?).

I don't fully understand the meaning of this topic. Should people feel bad because they show their personal taste? Here is insisted that it is bad to have an own opinion, and this is something that really creeps me out. People say how Test sucks and how bad X-Pac matches were LIKE IT'S A FUCKING RULE or something! I'm sure there are some unwritten rules somewhere that state how it's not allowed to mark out for Goldberg or Steiner for ex, but for those who have never read it, it's pretty unfair!
With that being said, I pretty much like(d) everyone except Kevin Nash and Chyna.
I shouldn't try to speak for the person who actually started the thread, but I will...
My impression was that the idea of a thread like this is to get everyone to admit that they mark out for someone that isn't a net darling, demonstrating that we aren't all mindless sheep following the latest mindthink, and that we all mark out for somebody perhaps a bit unreasonably, so we should lay of a bit when someone defends a wrestler that we can't stand. Just my take on it.
I think the thread has done it's job too well, because I can't think of a single wrestler that I can fairly claim that "just about everyone hates". Even Albert has a fair number of defenders. But RVD and UT take a lot of flack for no-selling, so I have a personal message for them. Don't sell!
Undertaker, I have completely accepted that you are too tough to be effected by the average offense, feel free to blow-off anything less than a finisher, or maybe a top-rope version of a finisher.
RVD, I accept that your yoga and training allow you to shake off the effects of opponents' attempts to pin point a body part, and that you will still be able to hit your signature moves. No matter what anyone says, neither of you need to change any of that. (You could stand to work on your punches, though, Rob)

Have you ever thought of permanently taking your bipolar ass back to Delphi?
Any of the Beantown faithful hitting the Fleet for the big PPV this weekend? I'm sure the building will be rocking with a good sized crowd, for once. With the NFC game on at 3:00, it's gonna be a loooong evening for me.
