Perhaps my sig and pic betray an impartial opinion here...nevertheless I'd maintain that Kurt is the best all rounder I've seen certainly since I've been watching wrestling since 1996 and from what I've seen by way of footage, the best of all time. His in ring ability is unparalleled . And not just his amateur and mat wrestling, his versatility - suplexes , impact (no pun) moves, submissions, ability to make a match look big, his selling aility, playing to the crowd, high risk moves, his fantastic close "2 and a half" count kick outs. To take bumps, bleed, moonsault of a cage and still put on a long high octane and exciting wrestling match at ANY age, leave alone his, is incredible.
Promos/gimmick - I feel he has always been able to involve and engage the fans, be he heel or not. Whether it is humour or intensity, he gets it across nicely. Gimmicks - the dork one proved he can entertain and be versatile, he's done heel and face both well, and the machine gimmick (began in we with his violence mouthguard) is believable. An incredible talent that TNA are very lucky to have. Considering he was WWE's top earner before he left, he could have stayed and stayed on top, so this isn't a case of "I can't make it big, hire me TNa".
Hed get a huge pop if he returned, and while his "vince sends me flowers" may be exagerrated, Vince would jump at the chance of his return. Though I'm not sure how popular he is with HHH and HBK, and a lot of marks/smarks hate him now that Punk twitter-bashed him.
