145. The Sandman
Before “Stone Cold” Steve Austin was chugging beer on Monday Night Raw, there was the Sandman.  He didn’t just drink beer; he took the empty can and smashed his forehead with it, often drawing blood.  He also entered the ring smoking a cigarette with a kendo stick in hand, the latter of which would often find its way into his matches.

The Sandman may have been technically sloppy, but he was fearless in the ring and put on matches in ECW that someone who with his limited athleticism and skill had no business having.  As one of the top draws in Philadelphia, the Sandman would attempt WCW and later the WWE.  He was actually over with the crowd in Vince’s realm, but he never felt comfortable there and did not have a long tenure there.  Near the age of 50, it is unlikely that he will get back to the WWE, and the question is could he be the ECW mainstay (if there is one) who gets into the WWE Hall of Fame.
