Wrestling is my life. It's the only thing I am 100% passionate about. I started watching it when I was about six years old. The first event I saw was a VHS tape of SummerSlam 1991. My favorite wrestlers of all time are The Undertaker, Kane, Shawn Michaels, Chris Jericho and Edge. My favorite wrestlers right now are Baron Corbin, The Miz, Rhea Ripley, Becky Lynch, Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. I am so passionate about WWE that I can predict at least 95% of all the results.

    Mark Henry is retired, so you will never see him in the ring again. So he needs to be off this list
