Who was the better wrestler in their prime?


Pure technical skill.

>>851657
technical wrestling? benoit, technical in the ring? eddie. Better overall wrestler and draw, eddie.

The fucking match between guerrero and malenko was GOAT. I miss classic ecw man.

Benoit was a better pro wrestler. Eddie was a better sports entertainmenter.

I hate that we have to use the past tense when referring to them.

Hi bretkuck. How's it feel to know Bret and Diesel were the worst drawing champs of the 90's?
>>
>>852063
Yokozuna rounds off the top 3.

That wasnt me you were replying to, and it feels fine because it isnt true

> top 5 worst drawing champs of all time

1. Seth Rollins
2. HBGay
3. Diesel
4. Yokozuna
5. Sid
>>
>>852130

>90's

Also, WWF got better right after Bret left. And it's pretty much objective fact Bret was a worse drawn than Shawn, no matter how much whining you wanna do.
>>
>>852130
>1. Seth Rollins
>2. HBGay
troll list confirmed
>>
>>852197
18+
Shawn was the worst draw of all time before Seth came along, even worse than Diesel. I have posted the buyrates numerous times and anyone that was sentient in the 90s will tell you themselves the amount of heterosexual adult males(aka the vast majority of the fanbase) shawn turned away with his male prostitute gimmick

1997 was a great year, it got better because the kliq's stranglehold was weakening and it got better because Bret was a professional and put Austin over, friendly reminder that HBGay did everything in his power to hold Austin and anyone else down and it literally took Undertaker threatening shawn with a beatdown for him to put Austin over. If Shawn didnt break his back then the AE wouldnt have happened, and thats a fact kiddo

Tldr
Eighteen plus

The Attitude Era was already starting to happen you stupid Bretcuck
HBK was the one suggesting all those raunchy Attitude ideas to Vince
>>
>>852247
Toplel
The Attitude Era already started because Bret started it himself with the This Is Bullshit segment you windowlicking cunt, Shawn's injury paved the way for it being allowed to steam on unchecked. You would know that if you wasnt an underaged kliq dvd babby

And the only raunchy ideas Shawn was suggesting to Vince was what they could do in their private after work hours

Go do the research yourself kiddo, ive posted the numbers and buyrates numerous times
>>
>>852063
Bret and Diesel were both draws though, even in a climate were wrestling was down.
>>
>>852218
Not him but why wouldn't Rollins be the worst drawing champion of all time? Not counting wrestlers with extremely short reigns, we have solid proof that Rollins was in fact a very poor drawing champion. Raw is getting it's worst ratings in history with him at the top. Rollins wasn't even a top 5 merch seller as champion.

It's pretty safe to say that Rollins is bare minimum in the top 5 worst drawing champions ever. And I actually like Rollins. He is pretty good. It's just that most of the audience feels otherwise.
>>
I never understood the appeal of either of them, same with edge and rvd and kurt angle

You probably aren't a fan of good wrestlers
>>
>>852397
Diesel was the lowest-drawing WWF World Champ ever
>>
>>853133
He drew more than Shawn Michaels
>>
>>853140
Not according to anybody who matters he doesn't

nWoWolfcuckTV pls grow up
>>
>>853154
Do you really want me to get the stats up again senpai?
I like Shawn 100 times more than Nash but the fact of the matter is due to the climate and his gimmick Shawn was the worst draw of all time before Seth came along
>>
>>853165
The fact is, people who know far more than you do have stated otherwise.

Stop embarrassing yourself
>>
>>853184
Like who

I got stats that prove otherwise, no one cares what your precious le meltz thinks
>>
>>853190

Jerry Brisco

More people care about Mad Money Meltz than you, Wolfcuck

Bret was the worst drawing champ and sent them into the huge slump they were in in the early 90s.

Makes sense, seeing as /pol/ is right more often than not

>Thread about Eddie and Benoit
>Becomes an argument about Bret and Shawn's drawing ability.
You know Shawn likely doesn't give a fuck who sold more tickets at this point and if Bret does it's cause (hate to say this as A Bret Fan) he's a bitter aging dude, in a family of people who give their lives to Pro Wrestling, who's been pissed off by years of Backstage Shenanigans.
Let's get with the times and Argue about Hogan and Savage.

I only see Eddie Gurerro
>>
>>854695
I wouldnt call him bitter, he is just an old straightshooter that gives zero fucks
>>
Lol I can't believe this is even an argument. Bret damn near killed the company when he was champ.

He's eternally bitter cause Hogan refused to put him over cause Hogan said the truth and that he wasn't able to draw a dime.
>>
>>854721
Hogan didn't give a fuck about that. He just didn't wanna lose to somebody who wasn't as big as him.
>>
>>851792
Reminds me of the leftovers season 2

:(
>>
>>851723
that's kevin smith

>>851792
Didn't know Cena had this moment with Guerrero.
>>
>>853165
>>853165
Stats need critical interpretation, though.

At least in the case of Seth, he's the worst drawing champion through now huge fault of his own. Ratings are down in his championship reign because of the god awful handling of the entire company.
>>
>>854742
Hogan just didn't want to lose because he's a literal manchild
>>
>>851805
lmao, you lying faggot it is known fact those two manlets didn't draw jack shit whilst they were champions, ratings were at the lowest point
>>
>>857392
We're not talking about Diesel nWoWolfkuck
>>
>>851657
What are you building into skill? I love all three of the amigos, but I think that Eddie's selling puts him ahead of Benoit when it comes to ring work.

And as we haven't talked nearly enough about Malenko in this thread, I recall hearing some talk that he could have been MUCH more entertaining than the "Ice Man" gimmick allowed him to be. Anyone else heard the same stories?
>>
>>857496
According to Jericho's books Malenko had a pretty sharp wit backstage
>>
>>854721

The steroid scandal and the resulting final death of kayfabe damn near killed the company
Bret's clean cut underdog champ persona is the reason we arent posting in the /wcw/ general right now, you would know that if you were 18+
>>
Anyone else secretly wish one day we find the REAL killers...

And have Vince cry on camera to save face for not giving Benoit the benefit of the doubt?

I can dream right?
