Top 50 Wrestlers Of The 1990s: #36 - Sid
WrestleMania 34 is coming up, and being a wrestling fan, I tend to get a little more nostalgic for them olden days of when wrestlers didn't have scripts with WWE verbage in front of them. DeLorean back to my early days of fandom during the 1990s and you had a product that was hotter than any Seth Rollins theme song (you know, ”Burn It Down?” Okay, I’ll see that bad joke right out the door).
So from now up until "The Grandest Stage of Them All" (with a little help from Wikipedia to fill in the blanks), I will release my Top 50 wrestlers of the 1990., factoring in their impact from the kid-friendly first half to the cuss-ridden, beer drinking second half to determine where exactly your favorite heel or face fall in rank.

Sid isn’t this high up on the list because of his personality (and absolutely not his wrestling ability), but only because of how much promotions pushed him to be a main event star. His look was great and his persona was good enough, but with injuries and unreliability, the guy just didn’t have it as a consistent headliner. That being said, he was a Four Horseman (ugh) and had his feuds with Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Sting, Undertaker and the like. He also won the WWF Championship twice and WCW’s United States Title during those ten, that ultimately, was an encompassing decade for the big man (heck, dude even had a cup of coffee in ECW).
