    It's clear that the sport/art is in a transitional phase..so given its current condition, who would you choose to lead your promotion *Top 5, any company in the world?: I would go Brock Lesnar, Kevin Owens , Bryan Danielson,Darby Allen, and I guess Roman Reigns, I was torn to choose Rollins or Moxley ...but his dominance needs to be respected.

    Roman Reigns, Kenny Omega, Kyle and Bobby, FTR, and Eddie Kingston.

    I know I counted tag teams as one, but I wouldn’t like them solo

    I'm starting an all women's promotion with my first 5 picks having an age limit of 30-years-old in the interest of building around them long term. So, based on overall upside (age/experience) and my own personal taste, I'm going with...

    Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. (30/6)
    Giulia (27/4)
    Sasha Banks (29/11)
    Shotzi Blackheart (29/7)
    Toni Storm (26/12)

    *Hana Kimura would have been an absolute must have if not for her tragic passing.

    *Anna Jay is too young and inexperienced to be first 5 right now, but as an investment in the future, she'd be a no-brainer.

    *Mina Shirakawa would be my personal assistant to help get a load off all that very important promoting and booking stuff I'd have to do.

    That's my starting line up. Some established names to draw first time interest and some future prospects I can make something out of.

    Kevin Owens

    CM Punk
    Darby Allin
    Lucha Brothers*

    I know they're a tag team, but screw you.

    Depending on the day of the week: Brock, Mox or Jericho could have slipped in there.

    And even though you didn't ask, I'll list my top 5 favorite women as well:

    Becky Lynch
    Liv Morgan
    Dr. Britt Baker, DMD
    Anna Jay
    Alexa Bliss*

    *As Alexa Bliss, not Spooky Ms. Fiend.

    Ripley's god awful booking knocked her out of the top 5.

    Samoa Joe

    The Briscoe brothers

    Bryan Danielson

    Claudio Castagnolli

    Brock Lesnar
    Honorable mention: CM Punk, El Generico and Lashley

    A lot of the older guys and people I loved in ROH. I dont want to disparage the current product in wrestling but it's just not my style and that's ok. I still watch RR, wrestlemania and summerslam and I always try to follow along during wrestlemania season.

    Last year I watched Mania and was like that wasnt bad. I tried to watch Raw the next night and got about an hour and a half in and was so bored I realized that was a mistake. lol

    Walter for his stiff and believable style.

    Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch for the same reason above. Ilja Dragunov can also be placed here.

    EVIL for entertaining character and solid matches.

    Okada for good matches and solid gimmick.

    Bron Breakker for good matches and having huge future potential.

    Bryan Danielson
    Kenny Omega
    Brody King

    HM: Willow Nightingale, Big E, AJ Styles

    ***edit: PAC as another HM, shit, maybe wouldn't have forgotten if he showed up more than once a month.

    Also, almost added Penta earlier but saved this list from predominate tag teamers.

    Honorable Mention: There is an undeniable character factor with Danhausen as far as charisma/Keeping Kayfabe that regardless of in-ring work,
    he's solid enough,,.and then add in everything else that he brings to the table via social media. It's definitely something that you need to draw eyeballs for the product. Also watching interviews with Donovan Danhausen out of "character", he seems like a cool, normal creative dude. Which reminds me of my friends growing up, and we tried to make bands/movies all the time. I respect anyone who has a creative vision, and he made it work.

    For anyone curious about the future of our great sport, I asked LTR for his list:

    Jericho
    Mox
    Lucha Brothers*
    Sammy Guevara
    Orange Cassidy**

    Not a single WWE name on his list. Wake up, Vince!

    *Look at him putting the best tag team in the world down as a single entity just like his old man.
    **He initially said AJ Styles, but then quickly changed it to put OC above him. Seems like just yesterday he was the biggest KO mark in the world.

    LTR is the future, not Jericho. It's a glimpse into what the future of our great sport is into.
