    The poll makes me believe that Jake is highly overrated. Carlos Colon was wrestling in Puerto Rico. He was an influential figure that created a hotbed for wrestling there, and his World Wrestling Council, particularly with its NWA membership, boosted the careers of many wrestlers and gave them international exposure. Measuring impact on the industry? It's Carlos. Measuring popularity and cultural reach? Again it's Carlos. Accolades? Carlos. Money made? Carlos. By miles and miles. In fact I see very little reason to vote for Jake at all, other than the fact that he was a top television star for a few years.

    No brainer here. Vote Carlos Colon.

    I'm not going to pretend to be the global authority on Carlos Colon but how many of his big wins came outside of the promotion that he dominated and outside of Puerto Rico? Is Chicago in Puerto Rico? No? Ok then.

    Roberts was one of the biggest WWF stars in its most successful period. He didn't win titles because he wasn't as good as Hogan or Savage or Warrior, but he was pretty much better than everyone else. Once he went heel he showed he could craft a feud with anyone, and though he ultimately lost a lot of those feuds, he made a lot of performers. Jake wins.

    Jake is one of the best heels ever. He was just never the big dog. Carlos was just that & his name is usually uttered first when discussing Puerto Rico. Jake is more often than not, behind a good few names.

    I prefer Roberts, but Colon is a bigger name.

    Carlos Colon was a hero in Puerto Rico, and made sojourns into the Mainland USA and was well received. Jake Roberts was a glorified jobber that got roles in some of the greatest moments in WWE history. But, Colon he was not. Murky role in the death of Bruiser Brody aside, eat would have destroyed Roberts. Vote for Carlos Colon. Él es el único!
