11.X-Pac
A bit of a controversial selection here (as the real life Sean Waltman would become famous for
attractingentirelythewrongsortofheatlateinhisWWFcareer),andalsoaformermemberof
DiBiases Million Dollar Corporation, XPac might not be your first pick when asked to think of a
WWELegend.However,asthe123Kid,andlaterasXPac,Waltmanwas(andstillis)atalented
worker, and a more than decent mic man. He brought cruiserweight moves to popularity in the
WWF at a time when the promotion was still almost entirely ruled by big men, and memorably

9.HarleyRace
The legendary WWE Hall Of Famer Harley Race is revered as one of the legitimately toughest
professional wrestlers in history, and practically worshipped by no less a wrestler than Triple H,
amongst many others. Race is the innovator of the diving headbutt, and regularly used the
piledriverasafinisher.Iftheresonethingthatavideogamehasovertherealthing,itsthatthe

Curtis Axel, was one ofthegreatest allrounders in wrestling history,as well as being a fantastic
technicalwrestler.HesalsoconsideredoneofthegreatestIntercontinentalchampionsofalltime

because playing Hart at his most villainous versus himself as The Blue Blazer would be a dream
come true. Or a final rematch against his older brother The Hitman even a dazzling technical

6.RowdyRoddyPiper
One of the first wrestlers known worldwide for his unpredictable verbal dexterity, Hot Rod
brought the pipebomb to WWF television twenty years before CM Punk came anywhere near a
wrestling ring. Famously headlining the first ever Wrestlemania against Hulk Hogan, Pipers hot
tempered wildman persona made him a fan favourite even when he was playing the ugliest of

It has to be said, the biggest appeal with the Sheikh is in his potentialcomedic value alone.

insanely popular that the fans chanted for it rather than for Hogan, which actually led to the
abandonment of the angle. If only there was a way to have JakeRoberts intense, psychological
style brought to bear in a video game. Perhaps WWE 2K15 could be the first wrestling game to
bringgenuineprofessionalwrestlingdramaticstorytellingtobearinitsinringaction.
