10 - Lex Luger - After a world title match on his in-ring debut, Luger genuinely has name power for the first time in two years. With Sting & Savage, he actually feels like a big deal. Then, he wrestles...
9 - James E Cornette - Undoubtedly the highlight of this month's WWF TV. Whilst not the greatest level of praise, the Louisville Slugger was - and is - in a class of his own when it comes to promo's in the Fed'.
8 - Chris Benoit - Some great matches, Eddy on Nitro, Malenko on Main Event, an established gimmick - even if it is an ECW re-hash - and a place in the latest incarnation of the IV Horsemen. Great month.
7 - Bret Hart - Hitman's match with Jean-Pierre LaFitte was arguably the only redeeming factor of the WWF's September offering. October saw him most-over in a PPV main event. Whilst COMMENTATING.
6 - Goldust - The Bizarre One finally made his in-ring debut this month. After months of glamourous vignettes & an extravagant entrance, Dustin Rhodes - bless him - seems to have enjoyed his time off.
5 - Rey Mysterio Jnr - In no small part to Psychosis, Mysterio Jnr finally gets to show North America what he can do. A perfect hurricaranna and a genuine competitor to Malenko and Guerrero's classics.
4 - Steve Austin - The blue-eyed boy showed more in a matter of minutes than he did in months of WCW. Shoot promo's, comedy skits, impeccable impressions and now the #1 Contender for the title.
3 - Hulk Hogan - Black gloves, black rag, no more Fu Manchu... In one month, Hogan managed to out-freshen his entire first year in WCW with a teased heel run. If only it could carry on.
2 - Mikey Whipwreck - The little guy finally did it. A testament to the booking of ECW shows Mikey as Champion has been a story told very, very well. Where does he go now? Time will tell.
1 - Cactus Jack - Perhaps the architect of the finest heel turn ever assembled. This month shows a stripped-back moveset while still delivering on an amazing run of promo's. Best in the world right now.
ECW gave us Mysterio Jnr vs Psychosis, WCW gave us Sting & Flair vs Anderson & Pillman. The best offering the WWF could make this month was either Dustin Rhodes vs Twinkies or Shawn Michaels vs the little cymbal-clapping monkey in Shawn Michaels' head. Which he has a fairer chance of winning than the Syracuse marine corps. It's WWF's last big show of the year next month. Surely it must be a November to Remember... Dear God, please...
