I wouldn’t put his wrestling ability in the “great” tier, but I would put it in the “very, very good” tier right below it.
HoF promo skills.
But it’s longevity and character work put him over the top for me. In a business that people can burn out from easily, he has stayed in the spotlight for longer than almost anyone and re-invented himself multiple times.
The biggest knocks against him were that he was never “the guy” and wasn’t a draw in his prime. But he is serving as both of those things right now for AEW, and is very successful. He might be the biggest draw in wrestling today, with Mox and Tanahashi right behind him.
