MR. PERFECT Curt Hennig (RIP) hands down for me. The greatest intercontinental champion of all time! My reasons are thus:

-Unparalleled wrestling skills; just a great athlete. You should youtube his three matches against Hitman because they are phenomenal.

-Great Performer. Mr. P could really sell it! Arrogance, pain, pride, humor, talking the talk on the mic. . .he had it all. And he never missed hitting his gum when he spit it out of his mouth. Also, pretty handy with a towel. Absolutely Perfect.

-Best theme music ever. Epic!

-Best short TV spots. All those bits with him outdoing famous athletes at their own sport were hilarious and classic!

-Even though he was technically a heel, you still liked the guy because of his humor, confidence, and good sportsmanship when he'd shake a guys a hand after a fantastic match.

I never really watched wrestling, but I have to give props to my hometown hero, Jerry the King Lawler. Not only did he provide near-Shakespearean drama with his feud with Andy Kaufman, but he's a wonderful artist. He did posters for the fair for a few years, and even did some comic work!
