The Ultimate Warrior would have handed Goldberg his @ss... Old school Sting was cool too, not the weird emo Sting of more recent years.

Zeus (Tim Lister) was a real conflict for me. I wanted to root for the bad guy in that case.

I voted for Andre the Giant

I lucky enough to get to stand next to him ....I'm 6 ft tall but felt like a midget
he was billed at 7' 4" but was probably around 7 ft tall ....he definitely seemed like it ....huge feet too

I worked at the airport for a couple years back in the 1980's ...I saw all the popular wrestlers of that era ....Jake the Snake ...Macho Man Randy Savage .....Hulk Hogan ....

Most of them aren't as big or tall as theyre billed at ....
some of them wear "magic boots" to seem taller

For example Hulk Hogan didn't sem to be as tall in real life ...
he's maybe 6' 3" ....not 6' 5" or what ever he's billed at

My second fav wrestler is George "the Animal" Steel
all my friends and I would crack up at his antics ...never mind his interviews

1980's were best time for pro wrestlers ....
even the managers were cool .....Captain Lou Albano ....Bobby the brain Heenan.....

What did you do at the airport? To be honest I don't feel like throwing bags around all day just to be around famous people But it's always a nice thing when they come to where you work. Years ago I worked at M&M who were sponsors of wrestling shows and they actually had them up to the place,I never saw them but that's what I heard.
I also worked at the Marriott hotel where WCW would stay in the late 90s and got to meet some of them also.

Yes, the perks of working at the airport ....I saw quite a few celebrities my 2 years there ....I worked for a major airline ...I won't say which one to protect the innocent ...the job was lousy ....perks were good

No kidding. I liked the Elvis schtick.

For me. #1 is Roddy Piper, #2 Mr. Wonderful, #3 Jesse "the body"
I never understood the insane love for Hulk Hogan. I loved the heels. To me, those heels truly make it entertaining. I think it takes more talent to pull off being a convincing heel, than a babyface. I can't stand Hulk Hogan or the Rock.
Anyone remember Brother Love? That guy was actually pretty talented. I saw him doing interviews back in 80's or 90's for WWF, may have been a wrestlemania. He was doing dead on impersonations or other wrestlers and of Mortan Downey Jr. he was dead on with it. Brother Love was a great actor, whoever the hell he was?
