WWE Names 10 Stars Who Were Ahead Of Their Time, Highlights From This Week’s “Superstars”

– The official WWE website has posted an article listing ten wrestlers who were “ahead of their time.” This list includes Dynamite Kid, Gorgeous George, Brian Pillman, Nick Bockwinkel, Bad News Brown, Goldust, Sabu, “Superstar” Billy Graham, Raven and Antonino Rocca.

WWE compares Pillman to CM Punk, stating, “Before CM Punk broke the fourth wall with his unforgettable “pipe bomb” tirade in June 2011, Pillman regularly cast his wild eyes right at the camera’s lens and unleashed bold messages that captured the unbridled emotion of The Attitude Era. Despite Pillman’s relatively short career, his body of work — including rivalries that took deeply personal turns — continues to influence a new generation of performers.”

– Highlights from this week’s episode of WWE Superstars are now online, which features Natalya going one-on-one with Aksana.

Also featured is Kofi Kingston squaring off against Primo.

    Brian Pillman was one of the main guys alongside Steve Austin, Bret Hart, HBK, Undertaker who opened the doors to the attitude era. A damn shame that he departed too soon.

    The only one I agree with is Superstar Billy Graham, since Hogan pretty much duplicated his character. The other ones fit in perfect in their times, whether attitude era, or before. Goldust’s initial push and controversy wouldn’t be a storyline in the PG era of today.

    I remember watching “flyin Brian” in late 80s early 90s WCW and thinking he was a lunatic for the way he wrestled, then when nitro came out and brought all the lucha talent it raised the bar much higher.
