In the past 5 years, the WWE has provided a much more solid foundation for not only their midcard and main event talent, but also for the up-and-comers. The WWE training facility and the notorious NXT program have provided top notch training for new wrestlers to develop not only their technical skills, but also character development, promos, entrances, and more.
Although we do still see Extreme Rules Matches (RIP Hardcore Matches), let's be real, back then if someone shed a few drops of blood, no officials were going to come running out to stop the match while they wipe the blood from your face like they did during the Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor NXT match in Texas recently. So now we just remember fondly the days of blood, sex, and violence, in exchange for a program more centered around more technically sound wrestling.
9 Hardcore Holly
7 Crash Holly
5 Cactus Jack
4 The Rock
3 Stone Cold
2 Val Venis
1 The Godfather
The Godfather was a pimp. I feel that I need not go on, because that alone speaks volumes. Where do I begin... It was typical for the crowd to begin chanting "We want hoes!" before Godfather would summon a gaggle of women to come running out onto the entrance ramp surrounding him. Common sense will tell you that, if nothing else, the use of the word, and even the reference, of women as "hoes" is nothing more than a memory now. You could never in a million years get away with a gimmick like that these days, especially not on live television during Raw. As The Godfather would say, "Pimpin' ain't easy!"
