64. Gory Guerrero
Although El Santo may have been the first megastar of Lucha Libre, Gory Guerrero has to be considered the first great wrestler of Mexican history. As Santo’s former tag partner, Gory ascended in the ranks of popularity, but it was a brutal heel (Gory was so named for his “gory” ability to draw blood) that he truly shone. Despite that vicious reputation, he was a technical marvel and maybe of the moves that are still used today was created by the patriarch of the Guerrero clan. That innovation alone should make Gory Guerrero a contender for the WWE Hall of Fame.

I think Gory will eventually just get the Von Erich treatment and be inducted as part of the Guerrero family.
