Every child who was a wrestling fan in the early 1980s wanted to be Hulk Hogan.
We watched and we learned. There is something about a WWE promotion that leaves us with chills running down our spine. Catch phrases, signature moves, and highlight reels are exactly what this business is all about. And throughout decades, we have had our favorites – the ones we quote and make believe we are just like them.
I remember Dusty Rhodes’ shtick being as good as anything I had seen when I was a teenager. The white man’s rap, the son of a plumber monologue and of course, who could forget “Hard Times?”
Rhodes was very good. These eight were just as good, if not a little bit better. These are eight wrestlers who we all like to imitate.
