Today’s question comes from Bill Ray:
“What’s up Caliber,
Here’s a wrestling-related question of the day: if you could pick any wrestler past or present that you think could be a star in any promotion, be it the AWA or Stampede all the way to WWE, TNA, and ROH, who would it be? My personal one is Randy Savage, but I’m interested to hear you and the blog on this one.”
Honestly, I think Savage is probably the best choice. You could put him anywhere, in any time zone, and he’d work. Hell, I loved it when Jay Lethal was doing it because it was just like watching Macho. I even thought they made up his hometown, but turns out it was just a massive coincidence he hailed from Elizabeth, NJ.
Some may say Stone Cold, but you couldn’t do what he did in the 80’s, nor could you now in the PG era. With Hogan you couldn’t do his schtickt in the Attitude Era. So, really, I think you’re right on the money with Savage.
Although, there is Flair…
How say you?
