Top 5 Best Microphone-Skilled Wrestlers of All-Time

The ability to work the mic, or speak, is vital to the career of a professional wrestler. Regardless of era or organization, here are the five best mic-skilled wrestlers of all-time (in reverse order).

Taking into consideration the vast plethora of wrestlers to have graced leagues such as the WWF, WWE, NWA, WCW, and various other organizations, here are the creme of the crop, the best of the best, the top five greatest mic-skilled wrestlers of all-time (in reverse order).

5) Dusty Rhodes. Back in the 1980s, The American Dream was the good ole boy of the good ole organization of World Championship Wrestling. Remember how much fun it was to see him talk? He would bounce and dance and tease and taunt like no other. You could tell that he wasn't acting - like some wrestlers were. He was who you saw. He dripped authenticity, which is why he was so great. His wrestling skills were so-so, but his mic skills made him the legend that he is.

4) The Rock. The best talker the WWE has had in the past 20 years. That is saying a lot since they've had some great talkers (who just missed this list) - Stone Cold Steve Austin, HHH, Shawn Michaels, John Cena - just to name a few. None could do it like The Rock could. He was so great at speaking that it makes you wonder how he would do as President of the United States. Imagine his State of the Union address! If The Rock had stayed in the wrestling industry he might have gone down as the best of all-time.

3) Hollywood Hulk Hogan. Not to be confused with the 1980s Hulk Hogan of the WWF - who was a great speaker, but kind of a one-trick pony, Hollywood Hulk Hogan, of the 1990s era nWo (of the WCW) was instrumental in changing the face of wrestling to what it is today. After rising to the status of greatest ever, he went in the opposite direction - he became a bad guy. It worked better than even he could have expected. He would take the microphone, enter the ring, and get the entire crowd - the same crowd who previously loved him as if he were a member of their family, to hate him so much that they would litter the ring with cans, papers, anything they could get their hands on. This was wrestling gold.

2) Rowdy Roddy Piper. The prototype of all 1980s bad guy/heel wrestlers, Piper was so believable at being insane that you thought he'd be admitted to the mental ward at any given time. The way he would go crazy in front of the camera was genius. It was also an act but the most believable act wrestling has ever seen. There are only a small handful of wrestlers so skilled at the act of talking that they can do any character called upon them. Roddy Piper was one of them.

1) The Nature Boy Ric Flair. He is the gold standard by which all wrestlers will be judged - on the mic - for all of eternity. When you look at him it was tough to see a wrestler. He wasn't particularly big, or strong, or technical, but he could talk as if it were his birthright. He could hold his own with any wrestler, in or out of the ring. If Ric Flair, Roddy Piper, and The Rock all had a debate, Piper and Rock would bow to his greatness. Nobody will ever be as great as Ric Flair. (On a side note - If you want to see a cool tribute to the Nature Boy, check out Will Ferrell's impersonation of him on the show Eastbound and Down. Hilarious.) Ric Flair - thy name is talk.
