Chris Page Asks: Hi Jim,
Although I'm in the vast minority (does that mean: wrong? lol I dont know), I consider both Ric Flair and Gordon Solie to be vastly overrated in their fields.
Flair is considered THE greatest in-ring performer in history, to me that couldnt be further from the truth. I'd not even put him in the top ten. You have a guy like, say, Hulk Hogan who is torn to shreds by people for working the same match every night, yet Flair did the same thing alot of the time too. I've been watching since 83 so have followed the majority of Flair's career and I just dont see it or get it with him. He is ok, but nothing more.
Onto Solie, he was so boring. His voice was just horrible, a cure for insomnia if there ever was one. That you are happy to take 2nd place to him when people talk about the greatest is crazy and I dont know if you do it because you consider it the right thing to do or really believe Solie was the best, but to me, he was just horrible. Jesse Ventura rarely gets a mention and he was fantastic, just made everything seem important.
Not really any questions, just comments I guess. Thanks for the forum you provide for us to be heard.
