Seems weird that a girl is writing this, right?  Not really.  I was born and raised in Stamford and as you probably know, it’s the home to the WWE.  (Or as I knew it as a child, the WWF- Screw those animal people for robbing us of our name.)  Anyway, being a lifelong Connecticut resident, I feel like you had to be a wrestling fan at some point.  It’s our home state pride after all.  I was no exception.  I had pictures of Bret “The Hitman” Hart covering my locker in high school.  I was pumped every time I got to go to a Monday Night Raw event.  As I grew older, my love for wrestling fell to the side.  With the passing of The Ultimate Warrior last week, it brought back many memories.  My grandfather never spoke any English, but I remember how his face would light up when The Ultimate Warrior would sprint into the ring.  Wrestling didn’t know any language, it was all about the theatrics- and it’s the one thing my siblings and I could watch with him and we were all on the same page.  Through careful research (that’s a lie, this is based solely on who I believe to be the best of all time) I’ve compiled a list of the greatest men who have ever entered the ring.  Please keep in mind that these fighters are in no particular order.  Question is, did I forget any?  Add them in the comments section.
