    pretty tough to argue that it isnt.

    hogan has been around forever, but his wrestling ability and technical application was light years behind the nature boy.

    i guess that does it--flair was the wrestling goat.


    woooo

    really?

    id say top of teh pile of second tier, or top 3-5 (maybe) to top 10, but greatest of all time?

    care to share how you arrived at that conclusion?

    pomp and circumstance notwithstanding.

    Dude created his own gimmick, choreographed all his matches, had athleticism, technique, played face and heel equally well, as was highly relevant his entire career.


    But really pomp and circumstances.

    Not to me.

    He's one of the greats but when you put it all together I still have Rocky as my number 1.

    Macho Man is the correct answer.

    Flair had everything you could want from a wrestler. He commanded a crowd like none other.



    Those of you saying Rock/Austin need to realize they couldn't keep it going in the biz as long as Flair did. Macho was epic but what hurts Macho was a certain promoter's reluctance to put a world title on him, same with Piper. I think both Macho and Piper had all the same gifts as Flair they just didn't have the titles put on them

    Anyone who for a large portion of his career uses a mouthpiece can't be the GOAT. That and UT's character has changed overtime. Flair has been the Nature Boy for damn near his entire career, stylin and profilin

    No it wasn't. That's the biggest misconception about Flair. After Flair was in the plane crash he would only use chops and knee drops. Most of what made Flair a great worker is he was forced to work with a limited move set. Flair was a fine wrestler, but he could sell like nobody else in the business. His timing is second to none, he knows how to work a crowd better than anyone else in that ring.

    Watch Hogan's Japanese stuff. Hogan was a damn good worker.

    With all that said Flair is the greatest wrestler of all time in my opinion.
