WWE

WWE has made a habit of comparing its current crop of WWE superstars to the greats of past generations. How many times have we heard Dean Ambrose being compared to the late, great Rowdy Roddy Piper - or AJ Styles considered the second-coming of Shawn Michaels? These types of discussions make for good debates, but often times put the current crop of WWE superstars in a negative light.

How can anyone possibly live up to such lofty comparisons?

Well, what if we flip the script for a moment? Instead of focusing on the superstars that have been, fairly or unfairly, compared to the all-time greats and have a lot to live up to, let's focus on today's talents that could've competed with the stars of the past, specifically during the Hulkamania era.

What WWE superstars, on the roster in 2017, could've hung with the likes of 'Macho Man' Randy Savage, Ravishing Rick Rude, Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat, and The Million Dollar Man?

Which tag teams could've chased the titles away from The Hart Foundation, Demolition, or The British Bulldogs? And what women could've worked alongside Sensational Sherri and Miss Elizabeth?
