Default Who was the better wrestler between Dean Malenko and Bret Hart??

To me it's a close call....On one hand you have "The Iceman"...I remembered on most episodes of WCW saturday Night around 1996-1999 when Malenko would wrestle I would see him do moves on a couple of occasions I never knew existed at the time...The guy was an awesome mat technician and a great chain wrestler but sucked on the mic......To me Dean should of achieved more in WCW and WWE than he did....Although he was the U.S. champ at one point, I think he would of made a great world's champ.....
Finally,you got Bret Hart and unless you are living under a rock, you all know about "The Hitman's" in-ring perfection from (wrestling,brawling,working the mic etc )so need I say no more....And like he has well documented on a number of occasions his style was very physical, but yet still he never injured anyone in the ring.....Bret reached the pinnacle of Sports Entertainment and has done it all......

All in all I think Malenko was the better Wrestler in-ring wise,but Bret was the better mic worker.....What are your opinions??

I have to agree with you on that Napier. Malenko was a great technition but sucked on the mic. Malenko did pull off some great moves that I had not seen before, what did they call him, the man of a 1000 Moves? However I cannot knock the Hitman's in ring performance, he was a great technition as well. As he was great with the mic. So I have to give the nod to the Hitman.

Dean Malenko matched opponents that put on highly entertaining bouts. Bret usually had a slow paced contest. Both were great, hard to say

Brett was one of the best tag team wrestlers ever... I never really caught much of Malenko. I didn't have time for wCw...

Late.

That's another reason why I think Malenko was the better between the two..Bret's was awesome in the ring but his style was too slow for my liking compared to someone like Benoit,Eddie,Malenko,Owen....

Side note....Anyone else believe Owen was just as good as Bret in the ring??

IMO I dont think Owen Hart was better than Bret. I always thought that Owen never got out and really showed his independence. He was living too much in Bret's and Niedhart's shadow.

This is just opinion but I think Bret was way overrated as far as in the ring goes. He was very good and put on some great matches but I think the man of 1000 holds wins this little battle.

OOH! Someone wants to play!

Dean Malenko was by far the better wrestller. I think the question has to be put as who was the better wrestling entertainer. Then the answer must be Bret Hart.

Pea Brain, indeed. You have failed to understand the concept of the world of wrestling circa 2006. It is no longer about wrestling, only about entertainment. Your thread holds no meaning because it no longer matters who the better wrestler was.

Therefore, those that were not entertainers in the past (ie, Dean Malenko) no longer should even be discussed. Nor should broken down pathetic people that can't get over the past (ie, Bret Hart).

No, the term that would have made your thread more relevant in today's wrestling society would have to be: Who was the better entertainer between Dean Malenko and the chimp at the zoo?

While Dean would have still finished second, it would have at least carried some semblance of relevancy in today's wrestling message board market.

So, you must be a child that has no thought process of what pro wrestling was verses what it has become.

Thank you and good day.
