Greatest Talkers

Hey, just thought I’d pitch you a question you can answer when the blog is slow.

Who would you place as the Top 3 greatest talkers of all time?

While we’re at it, what’s the greatest promo ever?

Ric Flair, The Rock, and a whole lot of other people way down tied for third.  The more Terry Funk promos from Memphis that I look up, though, the higher up the list he climbs.  I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned the greatest promo ever a few times, but it’s easily Archie “The Stomper” Goldie in Stampede, cutting his revenge promo on Bad News Allen after the brutal attack that put his son out of wrestling.  Even now you want to buy a ticket for the show and watch him beat Bad News into a bloody pulp.  Sadly the ultra-violent blowoff pretty much resulted in the early demise of the promotion, but no guts no glory.
