I wanted to take a break from the serious, analytical material I typically produce each week and simply focus on something fun, yet still thought-provoking at the same time. I came up with this.
It's completely subjective. You don't have to agree. And whether you do or you don't, I'm curious to see your "Top Five" lists. You can leave them in the comments section below, email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or tweet them to me @RealityofChris.
In no particular order, here are the top five "characters" I enjoy watching the most on pro wrestling television these days.
DISCLAIMER: These are not necessarily the top superstars or wrestlers in WWE or TNA. Most of them are not, in fact. The following five people are the ones that entertain me the most, right now, each week. It's a light-hearted list, people, and no one gets a prize for being included. If I leave one of your favorites out, don't yell…simply add them to your own list and send it to me.
#5. Santino Marella
He's been over for a while, but it was those final moments in the Elimination Chamber match that solidified his place with the fans. There simply was no denying his popularity at that point.
I'm happy he won a title; I just don't want to see the responsibility that comes with it cost Santino the time and ability to get over like he always has. He needs to continue being given mic time and funny segments on a consistent basis.
If you lose those, you lose Santino.
Santino is one of those cheesy gimmicks that are often hard to relate to if you're over the age of 12. But his delivery is exceptional and he's one of my favorites to watch each week.
