    The GOAT Promos Thread

    Yes, it's that time to wheel out your Mick Foleys, Ric Flairs and Eddie Kingstons. Been a while since we have a great promo thread, so lets get it going. Self-explanatory - post the all-time great level promos and talkers.


    Is this the best god damn heel turn promo ever? The friggin HEAT for Latino Heat at the start

    You can't have a promos thread without THE VIEW NEVER CHANGES BABY. Massive pro wrestling feels

    There's like a 100 great Mick Foley promos but this has always been my favourite:

    Re: The GOAT Promos Thread

    I'm always an advocate for the Mankind interviews with JR from the summer of 1997. There was three (I think?) of them and they were all magnificent. Foley is a genius and the best promo of all time for my money. You could fill an entire thread just with Foley promos and it would fucking glorious.

    That Eddie heel turn is chilling, I love it. Can't call it the best heel turn promo ever though, not when Hogan at Bash at the Beach exists.

    I'll have loads more later, but I'll start with one of my favourites.

    Anyone that says Bret wasn't a good promo needs to watch his work through 1997. This remains one of the best promos I've seen from anyone. Simple, short, justified, to the point. There's no way you can watch that and not want to see what happens next, and that is exactly what a great promo needs to be.

    Pipe bomb be damned, this is the apex of Punk's work in WWE. Would have liked to see Punk dueling with peak Rock because we all know that Rocky at this point was pretty much just a catchphrase spewing shell of his old self.



    Alright fine, here's the pipe bomb too.

    I never knew that the Maniac and the Trashman interacted in WWF.

    The Punk and Rock promo battle was amazing. The arms are too short to box with God line is so good.

    I'm sure Rock and Cena had some great promos in 2013 too. Will have to hunt some down.

    Re: The GOAT Promos Thread

    I swear this thread is made every year Didn't we do the greatest promo poll last year? I voted this as my #1 then and I'll never be swayed from my belief it's the greatest performance of a promo ever:



    Also, the greatest 5 word promo ever?



    Funnily enough I watched the Flair/Lethal promo yesterday because it got shared on twitter. Hilarious stuff.

    I know it's been said a lot, but man... if they just turned Roman heel from this precise moment on, his last few years would have been much more enjoyable for me. We could have avoided all those awful Brock matches. He could have excelled in that role. And he'd probably be truly over as a face now.

    Classic 1984 Piper heel promo:

    https://youtu.be/y12igvl6wyw

    I really think you could make a case that, from 1984-86, Piper was the best heel ever. People really hated him. And it was off-the-charts hatred.

    Re: The GOAT Promos Thread

    The go to Miz promo would be his Talking Smack meltdown, but the guys been cutting great promos for the last 12-13 years. This has always been one of my favourites, and did really well to draw on reality.


    This promo was a prime example of what Miz did so well during his WWE Title run, the things he could control he did really well. He was just let down by poor booking feuding with Lawler and being a pawn in setting up Cena vs Rock.


    This one is probably my favourite promo from the modern era, both guys were on point and sold everything perfectly.

    Re: The GOAT Promos Thread

    Nothing to add but I love that the 1st thing I thought of when I saw the thread title was the Eddie G promo (my favorite of all time, I legit hated him as a kid because Rey Mysterio was my favorite and I was like 9 or 10?) and that's the first promo that goes up. When I efedded or BTB'd, this was a frequent reference point for me.

    @ETE these promos are on WWE's Channel, why not support the official uploads, instead of posting these low quality bullshit uploads that someone stole ...

    Re: The GOAT Promos Thread

    WWE's got all the blood money in the world, it does not need our support. Though that does make me wonder how much revenue do wrestlers make from their youtube videos on the WWE channel? Odds are nil considering how they'd have to math out royalties and WWE doesnt care about its talents, but still.
