The best “total package” guys in that they were great wrestlers, great talkers, were incredibly over, and were equally great heels or faces...
I think Jericho and Savage top the list. No flaws with either, IMO.
I’d put Eddie Guerrero up there too.
Then you get into guys where you can nitpick something...
Benoit(not a great talker)
Flair(not a great face)
Michaels(honestly think he was terrible on the mic for like 90% of his career)
Hart(pedestrian on the mic for most of his face years - got really good in ‘97)
Angle(not a great face for the most part)
Mr. Perfect - not a great face, never got to shine as a main eventer
Austin - not a great worker anymore due to injury once everything else came into play - same schtick always, no real nuance(not that he needed it as over as he was)
Austin is one i would fight; he was def a brawler after the 97 injury, but by like 2000/01 he was having awesome regular matches, not just purely brawls. and i mean, he's Steve Austin
I think Rock probably deserves to be in the convo, maybe never a super super worker, but really good. And the other stuff was just unbelievable.
