Professional wrestling is very subjective. In the eyes of most, it's not a real sport. The competitors are not actually trying to win. They are trying to entertain the crowd, and in most cases they succeed. The matches are pre determined, and on the very rare occasion, something goes wrong and against the script, and they improvise. Look up cases such as David Sammartino vs Ron Shaw (WWF) or the Kurt Angle challenge vs Daniel Puder. Draw your own conclusions!

As founder and director of Media Man, and as a life long fan of professional wrestling, here are my current top picks.

It became timely to put our current picks in the public domain with the news that living legend of professional wrestling, Terry Funk is not well. This reminded us of just how great the Funker is. We believe his is the greatest professional wrestler of all time. The name of the Marquee is Wrestling, and he is also the consummate sports entertainer. We are hopefully that this news of Terry Funk being considered the greatest ever will also lift the spirits of Terry.

Get Well Soon Terry Funk

The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk is still in quite a bit of pain due primarily to an abdominal hernia and diverticulitis. No further health update is given at this time.

The hardcore legend turned 74 years old on June 30th.

There can be a case made that Thesz or Gagne are the greatest wrestlers ever, or is it George Hackenschmidt. The early to mid 1950's was a completely different era to the current, so how does once judge The GOAT. Others may say Dory Funk Jr, who surely played a part in Terry Funk becoming so great.
