WWE wrestlers pull off some of the most death-defying stunts, but that's only part of what endears them to the crowd. Being able to connect and entertain the audience on the mic is what gives these performers star power, and there were two masters who could control fans with their words. The Rock thrilled everyone with his quick wit, one-liners, and savage delivery. Others think Ric Flair's arrogance and impassioned promos are undefeated. What do you think? 🤼

When you think of iconic one-liners from the WWE, the greatest might have two or three memorable phrases. The Rock made a career turning epic phrase after epic phrase on the mic.

People never used the term "jabroni" until the Rock came along. No one was invited to the "Smackdown Hotel" before the most electrifying athlete in sports entertainment arrived on the scene. No sane person smelled what any rock was cooking before the Brahma Bull. Fans hung on every word. They savored every incredible insult and every ridiculous promo he dropped.

No one comes to close to what he did on the mic.

What the Rock did in the WWE was great, but everything he did, he learned from the Nature Boy.

Ric Flair wasn't the most athletic performer, but he always knew how to sell a match. The Rock had great one-liners, but Flair had unforgettable promos. No one has a more enduring interview than when he declared that Buddy Landel was dealing with the "Rolex wearin’, diamond ring wearin’, kiss stealin’, wheelin’ dealin’, limousine ridin’, jet flyin’ son of a gun."

While The Rock shoots for volume with his phrases, Flair goes for efficiency and impact. Like Mariano Rivera dominating with one pitch, the Nature Boy only needed his signature "WOO!" to become one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Even now, rappers reference him because his irreverent arrogance and style are second to none. 

When it came to the mic, no one inspired more or did it better than Flair.
