“Over the last decade-and-a-half, SmackDown has played host to sports-entertainment’s biggest names. Hulk Hogan, The Rock, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, John Cena, Triple H and countless others have, at one point or another, taken their talents to WWE’s blue brand. Whether it’s been Thursday or Friday nights, SmackDown has been a regular ratings juggernaut since debuting in 1999, thanks in large part to the show’s seemingly never-ending supply of legendary competitors.
In celebration of 15 memorable years and counting, WWE.com decided to take a look back and rank the 15 Superstars who laid the smackdown on WWE’s blue brand better than anybody else.”
Features Batista, Big Show, Booker T, Brock Lesnar, Eddie Guerrero, Edge, JBL, Jeff Hardy, John Cena, Kane, Kurt Angle, Michelle McCool, Rey Mysterio, SmackDown, The Rock, Undertaker, WWE, wwe.com
“Think talk is cheap? Try telling that to the 50 Superstars on this list. From an arrogant former reality TV star with an attitude problem to a wildly charismatic plumber’s son, these men have packed arenas and glued millions of fans to their television screens with their unique ability to inspire passion, fear, anger and laughter through their captivating interviews. Nearly every Superstar who ever set foot in the ring has spoken on the microphone, but these 49 men — and one woman — did it best.”
Note: My entries are JBL and Edge.
