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!
They deserve to be these two men the number one of the major rivalries of all the times, that so pretty epoch
NEVER disappointed this match. , these two put a lot of effort into it, the promos were great as were the storyline. My favoutire part was when they use to brawl and all the wrestlers use to come out to stop them
[Newest]No match to it

2Shawn Micheals vs Bret Hart
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!
This was talked about in till they made up last year
[Newest]Hello you suck. LOSER.

3Cena 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.
[Newest]I'm tired of this rivalry this sucks.

4Steve 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.
[Newest]It's odd austin vs. McMahon in third

5Shawn Michales vs. Undertaker
Two of the greatest WWE wrestlers of all time. These two created the greatest wrestlemania match of all time. And even whey they were both in their prime they still had unbelievable five star matches like the casket and hell In a cell match, which held great significance to the WWE and have a lot of historical value
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!

6Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels
Duh... Its Y2J Vs HBK. Period.

7Edge vs John Cena
Edge uses to capture the wwe champion and world heavyweight champion too the john cena to
John Cena's greatest rival is Edge, They fight for the WWE Championship in 2006 and the World Heavyweight Championship in 2009.
What? This isn't even the top 10? It should be at least in the top 3!

8Edge & Christian vs The Hardys vs Dudleys
HBK may have revolutionized the ladder match, but these 3 teams perfected it.


9Undertaker 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
the best feud ever in history of wwe.

10HHH vs Randy Orton
OMG he punted half of HHH's family and they had a most powerful tag team ever Evolution, THIS IS #!


The Contenders

11Triple 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
My opinion they are the best rivalry

12Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero
two of the best wrestlers ever simply fantastic
Great rivalry both men where the best performers in wwe when they clashed and how eddie and rey wrestled angainst each other was classic and will never be forgetten RIP Eddie guerrero

13John Cena vs The Rock
Wrestlemania 28 great match
Wrestlemania 29 absolute travesty and the crowd was dead once cena won


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.
I think wrestlemania 28 is greater than wrestlemania 29 because wm 28 is one year hard working the most epic match I ever seen rock is most greatest than john cena ever I love rock more than cena iam the rock biggest fan of all time
[Newest]Twice in a lifetime

The best rival but only in 24 are you kidding
This must be the 2nd or 1st, it doesn't belong in this place
This is the top 3 riverly of all time ffs.

17Randy 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.
