The Top Ten

The Rock vs Stone Cold
Greatest rivalry ever! Stone cold and the rock these both have made it all for WWE and have taken it to the highest peak! The rock was young filled with talent, passion, style and the most electrifying man on the other hand it was austin who's fearless, greatest brawler, toughest SOB, beer drinking machine and who can beat the hell out of anyone and have hammered everyone down and lastly is capable to raise the crowd at their toes! Best rivalry ever!
I loved the moment when Rock stuned stone cold with stunner and stone cold gave rocl bottom to the rock>>>!
They deserve to be these two men the number one of the major rivalries of all the times, that so pretty epoch

2Shawn Micheals vs Bret Hart
All you need is to watch the dvd of this rivalry, they both started in hall of fame tag teams, then became some of the greatest IC champs ever and world champs and had a hall of fam singles career, plus there rivalry at wrestlemania 12 with shawn not shaking bret's hand and the montreal scewjob. Arguably the greatest rivarly in history.
Are you series bro come on this should be the best rivalry of all time they had ladder matches iron man matches and don't forget about the Montreal screw job this rivalry is legendary
Seriously NUMBER 2! Shawn and Bret at Wrestlemania in a Iron Man match to overtime got a 2 seriously I know austin and rock was great but Michaels and Hart is LEGENDARY OK!

3Steve Austin vs Vince McMahon
Whoever made this list is an idiot for not putting this list as number 1! Millions across the world tuned in to Monday Night Raw just to see an employee turns their boss's life into a living hell! There's car property destroyed, vandalism, riots, brawls, interrupting meetings, ruining plans, carnage, ^^ so much more that made it all so damn entertaining and exciting to watch! Who doesn't want to see that? For all who disagrees, get this to your head, "Without Austin vs. McMahon" WWE would never beat WCW in the ratings! EVER!
The best feud EVER.
Even though it wasnt always Austin vs McMahon in the ring, they did wonders with this.
Everyone wanted to see someone step up to the boss, and Austin was the perfect man to do it.
Austin was the reason this feud is so awesome, his persona & Vinces persona play off each other like no other two in the history of the WWE.
Everybody thinks that The Rock vs Stone Cold Steve Austin is the greatest WWE feud. Austin was mainly feuding with Vince MacMahon, The Rock being pretty much the guy Vince went to when he wanted Stone Cold's but kicked. Plus, nobody's put there boss through as much hell as Stone Cold.

4Cena vs Orton
One of the greatest rivalries ever! When these two are in the ring against each other you can feel the electricity in the air! Should be in the top 3 I think!
In modern WWE, this feud should take a credit because no more feud in modern WWE is better than this one. countless matches. relentless wrestlers but what is the difference between cena/orton and stone cold/the rock is non-stopping blood busting open!. so, in this term, there's no feud that is better than rock/stone cold but for this PG era (damn why they change it -, - ), fair to say cena orton is the best and I think if they feud when the PG dint happen their feud maybe more more more better than rock/stone cold feud
Might be the best rivalry of the generation. Cena and Orton had awesome mathes and it was a shame Cena got injured. Sure the Rock vs Stone Cold was good but this is better and after their falls count anywhere iron man match. Best rivalry ever. Laugh out loud.

5Shawn Michales vs. Undertaker
Wow yes I think this was a good rivalry also but when it came to wrestlemania shawn lost the big one and that caused his career to end but he will be in his best friend side at wrestlemania 29... But anyway I live you shawn michaels
Wrestlemania 26 the best match could be possibly done!
The most Epic Fight in Wrestlemania History!
I Want A Rematch!

6Edge & Christian vs The Hardys vs Dudleys
HBK may have revolutionized the ladder match, but these 3 teams perfected it.


I can reljve every moment of it on DVD
Greatest ladder matchs ever

7Undertaker vs Mankind
How the hell can you forget that HELL IN A CELL MATCH where Mankind was thrown from the top of the ring and all those dangerous pins in the ring. An epic match. Any wrestling fan after watching this match will go crazy. This rivalry should have been at number 1. Show some respect to Undertaker. If you want you can criticize him but remember we cannot ever lift mark henry or big show the way he lifts them. We are all too weak compared to that legendary man. We can just say and write things about him but cannot even perform one of his actions in the ring
The best ever mick showed taker he was flesh and blood

19Randy Orton vs Undertaker

Legend killer vs legend this feud lasted for 9 month. Randy orton introducing him self to the deadman by giving him an Rko. Undertaker knew what was coming. So on they feud at wm21 orton fail to end the streak. Orton then attacking undertaker on smackdown with a surprise rko on taker

All of the build up and reputations feuded what would be the best rivalry of all time, the constant mind games just made it better and whenever I hear orton or undertaker, thisnis what I think about

20Undertaker vs Kane
I know they are brothers. But that is what makes them amazing rivals. Both are tall, have long hair, scary faces and very powerful. Epic!
What on blue earth is dis...this should at least be in top 10...two legends of d game and their rivalry in no.31...what a shame...

21John Cena vs Alberto Del Rio

22Big Show vs Randy Orton

23Undertaker vs Edge

24John Cena vs The Rock
This has been on for about a yr. What in wrestlmania 28 it was said to be once in a lifetime and here its back on wrestlmania 29 in ny nj. But this one is nearly as good as cena vs randy orton. What an epic match it was.
Wrestlemania 28 great match
Wrestlemania 29 absolute travesty and the crowd was dead once cena won


John Cena becomes a Heel Turn Egomania Sellout talks about his storyline, tweeners & force people to quit booing him and showing him some Love & Respect because he Rise Above Love & Respect.

40Cena vs Brock

41Jeff Hardy vs Edge

42CM Punk vs The Shield

43The Rock vs HHH

44Kane vs. Matt Hardy

45Randy Orton vs Triple H
This two have became one of the greatest rivals ever since in 2004 up till early 2009, when Randy Orton was betrayed by Triple H and his group Evolution. But coming up to 2009 when Randy Orton RKO Triple H real life wife, things started to get hetty between Triple H and Randy Orton, as Triple H went to Randy Orton home and attack him. Even with Randy Orton by kissing Triple H wife.

The greatest feud of all time.they fought against each other at wrestlemania 20 with stone cold steve austin as special guest refree

59Wade Barrett vs Randy Orton

60Randy Orton vs Daniel Bryan

61Triple H vs Shawn Michaels
Lead to the first and I think greatest survivor chamber match. Add the best triple threat match ever at wrestlemania between them and Chris Benoit. Mix in some three stages of hell, hell in the cell and a great last man standing match, and it was the rivalry which saw the return of michaels after his back injury. It is is my favourite of all time

62Santino Marella vs Scott Steiner

63Daniel Bryan vs Authority

64Wyatt Family vs The Shield
In modern WWE, only this stables are lifting up the WWE universe. hope this feud will continue to a new stage
