The Most Unsung Wrestling "Heroes" of All Time
« on: June 23, 2014, 12:03:29 am »

http://whatculture.com/wwe/20-unsung-heroes-wrestling-history.php

So I was feeling nostalgic the other day and I stumbled upon this list, and thought it was a pretty good read. Even when I didn't agree with someone, they were at least able to make a good case for them being there. I figured some of you guys would want to read this, there it is.

Do you all agree with their choices? Who would you consider one of the most unsung wrestling heroes of all time?

I would put DDP in there somewhere. I know, I know, he's got his fans, but I'm not sure he gets the credit he deserves. He was a key cog in WCW, their "people's champion", but I think his yoga and lifestyle has helped a ton of guys that are out of wrestling, and even those still getting in the ring.

I was glad to see Bam-Bam get a mention, I was always a big fan of his.

This name wont be popular, but one name I think of is Kane. Think about how many matches that guy has wrestled in. How his mask and evil persona helped put over many wrestlers. He also had the connection with the Undertaker that was awesome in the Attitude Era.

His Debut was awesome:
