Personally, I don't see how anyone could not draw a comparison to the 1982 Wrestling All Stars set and 1952 Topps Baseball--both seem like keystone sets in their respective sports. I also can draw a comparison between the iconic nature of the WAS Hogan and the '52 Topps Mantle--the cards are not necessarily important because they are the most valuable cards in the sport (b/c clearly, neither one are) but both sets, and cards, represent a set before the card "boom" and before either superstar was who they ultimately would become in the American zeitgeist.

I think a top 5 devoid of, at a minimum, the 82 Hogan would be flawed.
