I mean he’s probably a large part of the reason why I’m a fan today

1/5

I absolutely deplore the man but feel I need to give him a 2 because of his importance? undecided.

There are a lot of important things in life that are undeniably awful

He did arguably give us the nWo at least? Even though that was really Hall & Nash but his heel turn completed it? Is that worth a point?

I mean he’s also given us some of the most entertainingly shit segments in wrestling history, which maybe also justifies a point in a weird backwards way

Probably one of the, what, five most famous people in the world at one point? Fries my brain that stuff.

Dunno if it would be fair to say he was fairly limited in the ring, but the most established face during what I’d consider (and what’s generally considered, right?) the golden age of wrestling.

Also an apparent racist who seemingly fancies his own daughter, so, y’know.

God it’s hard to tell innit. Borrowed most of the gimmick, rested on his laurels for 30 years or so. But he did what he did exceptionally well. Pure character work combining the face run in the 80s with the nWo in the 90s probably can’t be matched and has given wrestling as a form of entertainment some of it’s most seminal moments - slamming Andre, the feud with Macho Man, the exodus and heel turn, the return and huge match with Rock. Even his feud with Vince a little later. Piece of shit human being and never put on a classic but can’t give him less than a 4.

him joining the nwo probs saved the wrestling business so he can have a point for that, and he can have another point for his mr america run as that was legit great
