You ever seen Moolah & TL Hopper (another sad omission) in the same place @ same time?



House shows don't count unless acknowledged on TV so before WM they officially fought 3 times, with HBK being 2-0-1. Sure both of those wins involved 1-9 people interfering but a win's a win!



Shut up, Josh!

Well, they only had so many places for Dead Guys.
Hennig, Thez, Blassie, Eddie, Gorilla, Gorgeous George, Kawalski, Moolah, Buddy Rogers, Rude, Jack Briscoe, and JYD.

A dozen dead guys, no room for one more.

Also, Jerry Lawler is CRIMINALLY underrated at #20. He worked as a heel, a face, had feuds with his best friend that lasted 20 years, was a booker, gave a TON of people their break before they went to WWF, and came up with some of the best EXTREME moments in Wrestling. Memphis Wrestling was ECW before ECW was cool.

Why words missing? Yoda you are? ;)

Here are some photos of the DVD set itself:

http://www.wwedvdnews.com/exclusive-pre-release-photos-of-wwe-top-50-superstars-of-all-time-dvd/6980/

On the back it says: "WWE superstars have rated their favorite superstars of all time.....-in the minds of the men and women who battle in the ring- Who is the number one superstar of all time?...Watch the Top 50 superstars to see who the superstars respect the most."

So, the debate can now come to an end, as far as the positioning of wrestler A or B is concerned. It's not an acutal "This really are the Top 50"-list. It's a "As ranked by the WWE superstars"-list.

Points being added up from lots of people's lists kind of explains the randomness and the strange success of Mr. Perfect but I find it hard to believe that the WWE Superstars would've remembered to do Universe Mandated things like penalize Flair ten or fifteen spots and include Gorgeous George because his movie is coming out

This match just sounds awesome. I love oldschool six man eliminations almost as much as Battle Royals from yesteryear.

I don't know why they decided to throw Rosie into a more comedy angle with the BP when she legit injured Daffaney. Maybe she is going to replace ODB who is not been on TV as much as well.
