  1. Good morning, I'd like to talk about DVDR 500. How does it work? How many and who where the people that did those annual rankings? Where can I find all the complete DVDR 500 rankings? Thank you very much
  2. Good morning. This poll is about historical importance, obiouvsly not about who is a better worker. The comparisons are: 1) Undertaker vs Rey Mysterio 2) Kurt Angle vs CM Punk 3) Kenta Kobashi vs Goldberg 4) Sting vs Hiroshi Tanahashi 5) AJ Styles vs Kazuchika Okada 6) Bryan Danielson vs Toshiaki Kawada  Thank you very much
  3. Who influenced more the current wrestling style in North America (AEW, ROH,WWE main roster, NXT, indies) between Daniel Bryan and AJ Styles? What are the aspects that were more influenced by Danielson and/or by Styles? Thank you very much
  4. Good morning. This poll is about historical importance, obiouvsly not about who is a better worker.

  5. In reality when Batista was on top ratings, ppv buyrates, house show attendance increased strongly from the year before, so the fact that WWE is the draw is not so much correct. Bryan in WWE unfortunately was never a draw like Batista, and I'm a huge fan of DB and not a fan of Batista. The fact that Bryan headlilined everywhere he went I don't think that show that Bryan is bigger.
  6. But Batista was also a big star as a wrestler, he was way bigger worldwide than Bryan. He drew huge ratings and ppv buyrates, while Bryan was never a big draw. I think that Batista's wrestling career has been very underrated by many people, in 2005 he was even bigger than Cena.
  7. I agree with you about Goldberg vs HBK. Goldberg is clearly the biggest star, while HBK is more important and more influential. About AJ Styles vs Reigns is really difficult; I think that Styles is more important considering that everywhere he has been on top everywhere he wrestled; he was the most important wrestler in TNA history, he was from 2014 until 2016 the top gaijin in NJPW and since 2016 until today he is one of the top wrestlers in WWE. Anyway Reigns is clearly the biggest star, they are really close in USA, Canada, UK, but in countries like India, Arabia, Pakistan and other Eastern countries Reigns is way way bigger (in those countries he is even bigger than Conor McGregor for example); I think that should be considered if we judge who is the bigger star. About Batista vs Bryan, DB is clearly more influential and consequently more important. Batista is clearly a bigger draw and star. Worldwide there are for sure more people who know Batista than Bryan, he is a way bigger star in Mexico, Europe, considering that WWE was way more popular worldwide in 2005-2010 than in 2013-2014, so Batista is the real answer. Even if you compare PPV buyrates, house show attendance data and merchandise sold, he was also a bigger tv draw, he drew huge ratings when he was on top and that can be confirmed if you analyze ratings. Unfortunately Bryan was never a ppv draw, nor a ratings draw, when he was on top ratings and house show attendance decreased, although he was not only his fault.
  8. Good morning. This poll is about historical importance and about who is a bigger star/draw, obiouvsly not about who is a better worker. Furthermore, in the case of Batista it's better if you consider exclusively his career as wrestler, not his acting career . The comparisons are: 1) Goldberg vs Shawn Michaels 2) Roman Reigns vs AJ Styles 3) Daniel Bryan vs Batista Thank you very much
  9. In particular casual fans. Analyzing google trends appears for example appears to confirm that https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=%2Fm%2F01t99n,%2Fm%2F06299b
  10. However do you agree that Kane is more known by people? In fact he wrestled for a long period in the biggest promotion worldwide and was on top during periods in which WWE was very popular. While Bryan wrestled on top for less than a year in a period in which wrestling's popularity went down. Anyway that was not Bryan's fault.
  11. Yes, like I said Bryan was more over than Kane at his peak with crowd, but that does not mean that he is a bigger star or draw. Kane is objectively more known by people worldwide considering that was on top for longer. In a sense a comparison can be made between Kofi Kingston and Reigns. Kingston is probably hotter with live crowds, but Reigns is a much bigger star. In my opinion Bryan is more important than Kane, but not because he was a bigger star (he wasn't, although it was not his fault) but because he is much more influential? Do not agree with me?
  12. In your mind, how much important is "being more known and being a bigger star" in the criteria historical importance? For example you stated that Bryan is more important than Kane , but for sure Kane is much more known both in US and worldwide https://trends.google.com/trends/explore?date=all&q=%2Fm%2F01t99n,%2Fm%2F06299b. Bryan unfortunately was never a star like Kane, when he was on top tv ratings and house shows attendances went down, although he was really over with live crowds. Obiouvsly that depends also on the fact that Kane wrestled on top for longer and was an uppercarder/main eventer during the Attitude era, while Bryan was on top for a short period, less than a year.
  13. Good morning. This poll is about historical importance, obiouvsly not about who is a better worker. Furthermore, in the case of HHH and Batista it's better if you consider exclusively their career as wrestlers, not promoting career in the case of HHH and post wrestling career for Batista. The comparisons are: 1) Rey Mysterio vs Kenta Kobashi 2) Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Toshiaki Kawada 3)AJ Styles vs Big Show 4)Triple H vs Shawn Michaels 5) Batista vs Shinsuke Nakamura 6) Daniel Bryan vs Kane  Thank you very much
  14. Hi John, how are you? Yes I'm really enthused about AEW. I look forward to the first episode on TNT. I really hope that they will grow fast.
  15. Good afternoon. Like last time I opened a poll in which you should compare some of the best wrestlers of all time. The criteria is exclusively IN RING ABILITY, that includes criteria like storytelling, workrate, in ring psychologhy, selling, versatility, cleaning in the execution of moves, technical skills, high flying skills, brawling skills... The comparisons are: -Ric Flair vs Bret Hart -Kazuchika Okada vs Hiroshi Tanahashi -Daniel Bryan vs Mitsuharu Misawa  -AJ Styles vs Jumbo Tsuruta -Shinsuke Nakamura vs Jun Akiyama  Thank you very much
