  1. Austin's king of the ri g winning promo was the best ever and it practically launched stone cold steve Austin into super stardom. I remember it too cause I watched it back in june 1996 on pay per view when I was 15.

  2. Hmmm, if I were to say greatest for KOTR…
    1. Steve Austin
    2. Brock Lesnar
    3. Kurt Angle
    4. Triple H
    5. Edge
    6. Bret Hart
    7. Randy Savage
    8. Owen Hart
    9. Booker T
    10. Ken Shamrock

  3. I just luv king of the ring am glad @WWE bring it back because at the end of the day it's a great feeling to be the ?KING!?

  4. I remember William Regal winning the KOR. When he beat CM Punk. I swear till this day, he was high ASF coked outta his mind. You can straight tell, its not cuz of a match. Nope Drugs. Im happy William Regal is doing great now, times are rough sometimes.

  5. The best part of Harley Race's coronation was the serious look on that "little man's" face. He sold that moment all by himself. Also.. Booker was the best in my opinion.

    But if we talk the most "hated" of them.. Owen Hart (R.I.P.) sold his heel persona better than anyone on this list who was heel!

  6. bret hart should be number 1. he deféated shawn michaels, razor ramon, and bam2 in one night to won the king of the ring.

  7. King Booker was the best to use the king gimmick to me he should be number one over stone cold and honestly would even put Owen Hart and Harley Race and Macho King over Austin.

  8. A very appropriate No. 1 choice. I’d have rated the two-time KOTRs — Randy Savage and Bret Hart — higher for that reason. And although he never won a KOTR tournament, no list is complete without Jerry Lawler on it.

  9. Austin had a great promo when he won but booker t was the best king of the ring. He made me hate him when he was world champion and king of the ring.

  10. I was at the first ever king of the ring held at Sullivan Stadium in Foxboro,Ma July 8,1985 and Don Muraco was the winner before it became a pay per view.Good Times?

  11. King Booker without any doubt was the best King of the Ring ever. He lived up to the King moniker perfectly.

  12. Anyone in the comments that agrees Austin was the greatest King of the Ring is wrong and caught up in the nostalgia. Yes, he was the greatest super star to win the King of the Ring, but that's not what the list says. It says Greatest Kings of the Ring, and Austin wasn't a better king than King Booker. Booker T literally perfected the King of the Ring gimmick and won the world championship in the process. and for Austin, outside of the promo that he cut, can anyone name one memorable thing that he did as a king?

  13. Austin made a cool speech, then was on the free for all (kickoff) for Summerslam 2 months later. Booker BECAME a majestic king! Booker is #1

  14. I think the Macho King and King Booker were the best. On a side note, Owen won?! I knew Bret did but oh man… The king of harts. I like the sound of that.
