    That's a pretty good list. Other guys I'd put up there with them are Ricky Steamboat, Daniel Bryan, Dean Malenko, William Regal, Owen Hart, Chris Benoit, Dynamite Kid and Rick Rude.

    I'd argue that Ric Flair wasn't a technical wrestler, even if you ask him he'd tell you he wasn't a technical wrestler, I would say that Shawn wasn't a technical wrestler either at least until the tail end of his career.

    But yeah Kurt, Bret, Curt definitely, add Stinko Malenko to that list as well, Benoit was extremely technical as well. The late Dynamite Kid, but he could do everything.

    I'm old enough to have seen later career Nick Bockwinkel. Like Flair, he could make just about anyone look good.

    EDIT: The objection CaptainCrunch raised about Flair probably is similarly applicable to Bockwinkel as well, but it's tough to know without having seen him live in his true prime.
