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?

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?
