#1 The Rock
"Jabroni-Beatin', Pie-Eatin', Trailblazin', Eyebrow Raisin', Step off the brake, Foot on the Gas, Always Ready to whoop some a**, People's Champ!" Think of another superstar that could've made up this line and make it believable. You can't. The Rock is considered one of the greatest talkers of all time. Everything that he said was hilarious, and he soon became a money-spinning wonder for the company with his fountain of catchphrases.
His promo battles against the likes of Austin, Cena, Jericho is the stuff of the legends. He was never repetitive, wonderfully creative, and completely believable. If you want, you can check out his greatest rivalries here.

#2 Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho went from being an underutilised cruiserweight in WCW to a sure-shot HOFer in the WWE, and much of it was because of his incredible mic skills. His wrestling prowess isn't being doubted, mind you but it were his incredible promos that made Vinnie Mac a big fan of his.
