I'd take Thesz over Rocca, and I certainly admit there's no accounting for taste. I've always kind of liked the long scientific matches, where both men are looking for some escape to a hold, or use a subtle psychological ploy. But you know, some times I like to watch Orson Welles in Citizen Kane while other times I prefer watching Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space, not that Rocca's matches were the train wreck of Plan 9 (That's more comparable to Detroit's Big Time Wrestling, which I also enjoy).

All that being said, I'd take Georgous George over either Thesz or Rocca, and "Nature Boy" Buddy Rogers over Gorgeous George.

I would take Rogers and George over both as well
