Top Ten Best WWE Rivalries


The Top TenXW

1The 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

Yeah man totally stone cold is just cold and the rock is just so hard both are really really really good dancers it son bae bae

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.

Vince McMahon getting beaten up in Hospital by Stone Cold posing as a doctor is a classic moment. I'll take it from here nurse.

4Shawn 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!

But shawn should be given one more chance

5Cena 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.

John Cena and Randy Orton is the best WWE wrestlers ever and thy both are super rivals when they both see each other they want tear each other apart!

6Edge vs John Cena

This is the best rivalry of all time because they made you feel like they really hated each other and their chemistry was like no other! Whenever people saw these two men in the same ring they knew they were in for a match and it was so charismatic before the match even started.

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.

Edge and John Cena rivalry are the best rivalries

7Triple H vs Shawn Michaels

This rivalry saw a Unsanctioned Street Fight at Summerslam 2002, the first ever Elimination Chamber match at Survivor Series 2002, a Three Stages of Hell match at Armageddon 2002, another Elimination Chamber match at Summerslam 2003, a match on the December 29th 2003 episode of Raw, a Last Man Standing match at Royal Rumble 2004, a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 20 and finally, a 47 minute war inside Hell in a Cell at Bad Blood 2004. This is better than Stone Cold vs The Rock!

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

8Edge & Christian vs The Hardys vs Dudleys

HBK may have revolutionized the ladder match, but these 3 teams perfected it. - andrewXmetallica92

9Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels

Duh... Its Y2J Vs HBK. Period.

10Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero

The Contenders

11Undertaker 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.

undertaker is my idol in wwe

12Randy 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.

13CM Punk vs Jeff Hardy

This was the extreme in wwe

Jeff hardy is the best.

Funk that hardy better

14HHH vs Randy Orton

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

15Stone Cold vs Bret Hart
16Ric Flair vs Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
17Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage
18Randy Orton vs John Cena

Yes that is a good match

19CM Punk vs John Cena

Even though it's a newer rivalry its still one of the better ones, they had some bad blood and went on for a while and I think it deserves to be higher on the list, maybe not top 5 but it deserves to be up there

This is a big Rivalry

It's the biggest rivalry I am grateful to have experienced.

Its like Batman vs Superman! 11
