Greatest WWE Superstars of All Time


The Top TenXW


The greatest wrestler of all time! Why? Because the respect that he gets from both fellow superstars and everyone is unparalleled. He has been in some of the greatest matches ever seen. He is undefeated at Wrestlemania. You know that once you hear those bells toll, the greatest wrestler of all time, Is on his way!

November 1990 he was introduced by Brother Love. Standing a 6'10" weighing nearly 300 pounds. And a devastating arsenal. It's easy to see why he is one of the biggest superstars in WWE history. Yes he is still undefeated at WrestleMania 19-0 but he has the total package, the look, the size he can jump of the turnbuckle and apron almost like a crusierweight. Always been a fan favorite.

He beats most of his fellow opponents because of his skill. some superstars rely on their brute size (Big Show for example) or strength (Mark Henry is a good example). All he needs is the chill he puts into his opponents with his appearance along with the knowledge of the tombstone pliedriver. Not to mention unlike some of the superstars he is very smart with props (especially in hell in cell matches).
Another reason I voted for him is not only can he deal a beating but he can take a beating. For example if you saw the hell in a cell when he faced Edge and when Edge got his turn to strike he speared him through the steel on to 2 desks and it only took him a minute to get up where it would have taken someone like Randy Orton much longer.

2John Cena

He is the awesome and the biggest greatest of wwe of all time

I think that John cena is this the best but I'm honestly
Going to say that I don't think he is the greatest of all time although he is awesome and I have a lot of respect for him but I think that every superstar and diva in wwe history is great but there can only be one superstar who is the greatest of all time and it isn't undertaker cause we all have our own opinions and I honestly think that John Cena is going to be the Greatest WWE Champion of all time If he keeps doing what he's doing"

John Cena has beat everyone on the current roster including Undertaker!

John Cena should be number 1 and undertaker should be on number 13

Shawn Michaels #3!

The most charismatic wrestler of all time, Shawn Michaels is the only WWE player who has played in 4 different generations. In: The New Generation (1994-1995-1996-1997), The Attitude Era (2004), The No Mercy (2008) and Ruthless Aggression (2010). In 1992, he began with a rivalry against Bret Hart "Hit Man", who then played the longest match ever in Wrestlemania (1hr/04 mins).

During the 1996 edition, he has played the ...more

4The Rock

The Rock is greatest entertainer, Mic skills, charismatic, in and out ring performer superstar of all time. He can make anything worth wanting to watch. At Wrestlemania, he has defeated the legendary Hulk Hogan. His greatest and respected rival, Stone Cold Steve Austin. And defeated this generations WWE top Face, John Cena. He will always be "The People's Champion".

Wrestlemania 30. Brock Lesnar, your candy ass is next!

The charismatic man in all the sports entertainment and now in twittertainment is on fourth ranking by his ass kicking skills in wwe. He has beat hulk hogan, stone cold and also beat John cena at wrestlemania 28 to became the best performer in the squared circle and still keep entertaining us - Shivprasadspatil

There is no entertainer, like the Rock. The attitude era was the best WWE had to offer in decades. Those who did not see him perform in the late 90s and early 00s must go to youtube right now and see what I'm talking about. It just doesn't compare to the NOW.

I love his body

5Stone Cold

At the 1996 King of The Ring Austin defeated Jake Roberts in the final round. Then he cu a promo saying Austin 3:16 says "I just whipped your ass" from there he would go on to Headline future Wrestlemania main events with the likes of The Rock, Bret Hart, and Shawn Michales a well as being a 6 time WWE Champion. It's hard to believe that an ass kicking Beer Drinking redneck from Texas can help shape an entire industry. TO this day he probably is the biggest superstar in WWE History.

Stone cold is number one. 1998 greatest year in pro wrestling. wcw, ecw, Wcw had the nwo hogan sting goldberg. Everybody of all ages were watching the attitude era. Lots of adults loved Stone cold since we can all relate to having bull bosses. Austin was the anti hero the average joe the rebel. Austin is number one he saved WWE during the wars.

Stone cold won 3 royal rumbles more than any other superstar off all time

If stone cold steve austin and the rock still in WWE, I'm sure John Cena will not popular like now.

6Triple H

He is the game, the cerebral assassin and always dominated every opponent he faced. Still marrying to Stephanie McMahon, he did not took any shortcuts to win win a title, he worked hard for every single moment and earned. His wrestling skills also awesome and still can crush someone's skull by his sledgehammer. - Shivprasadspatil

This man gets a bad rep from marrying the bosses daughter, but really he already established himself as a top superstar and a World Champion long before that. He was "The Game" before he married Stephanie McMahon and he will be "The King of Kings" long after.

Triple h was a an icon he never will be now because he won't be remembered as the game king of kings and cerebral assassin he will be remembered as a corporate sellout like kane rollins and big show. He cheated and tormented Daniel bryan for a year he even attacks his own referees like at survivor series and he turned his back on randy orton and ric flair. He
Thinks he can beat sting is hhh serious tripleh is afraid of hops life of sting he thinks he is the man he just wants to be another since mcmahon
Triple h always hides behind kane and the big show especially his own wife stephanie. he hired the shield to protect him because he was afraid of hops life of everyone

At least he is better than Cena

7Bret Hart

Why he is not #1 on this list is beyond me! He kept the WWE alive when people didn't want to watch it anymore. He was legit, and brought in a whole new definition to professional wrestling. He is all around the best wrestler ever! He was crafty, smooth, quick, and systematic. The PERFECT technician. He made wrestling believable after the 80's, and Hogan's cartoon era. The Excellence of Execution will always be #1 on my list. Thank you Bret!

The best there is the best there was and the best there will be in wwe. Brett Hart is an inspiration to every kid as well as to every superstar. Brett Hart was an icon of wwe and wwe will never have the second Brett hart ever - Shivprasadspatil

He is the excellence of execution He is the best there is, best there was, and the best there ever will be. King of the ring, Intercontinental Champion, Tag Team Champion, And a 5 time WWF champion.

He is the best there is the best there was the best there will ever be

Edge was such an incredible Superstar. If you ever hear other WWE Wrestlers talk about Edge, they all say how he was the best performer and was great in the ring. He just knew what to do. The ring was Edge's home and he knew exactly how to please the crowd. Edge was in numerous classic matches laying his body on the line. I always loved seeing him go crazy waiting for someone to spear and then finally spearing the guts out of someone. Absolutely no one can beat Edge's spear by the way. Edge is, without a doubt in my top 3 of the best superstars of all time. Not to mention that his entrance music was the best too! Hate that he had to retire, we miss you Edge!

On my opinion Edge is the best wrestler in the history of wwe, if you disagree then please don't get mad at me for thinking that. No one HAS EVER, AND NEVER WILL BE BETER THAN EDGE!

He was the best performer the facts tell you.. he had more championships than any other decorated superstar which includes 11 world titles, he was the first ever money in the bank briefcase holder and he accomplished every gold WWE had to offer like royal rumble, elimination chamber, king of the ring, wrestlemania main events everything.. his style and charisma his entrance was one of his own...

Edge is one of the best superstars! No doubt about it. And he had defeated John Cena which shows that he is the real superstar.

9Randy Orton

Randy Orton was currently the WWE Champion but in TLC 2013, he defeated John Cena for the undisputed championship and he is now the WWE World Heavyweight Champion. He is also the youngest world champion at the age of 24. He is a big fan favorite.

Randy Orton definitely belongs in this list. He was one of the most emotional performers. Just the way he looked at his opponent was evil. Also in my opinion, the RKO is one of the greatest finishers of all time. Always loved hearing the commentators say "RKO outta nowhere! " And he certainly would come out of no where. Keep it up Randy!

He is just GREAT! He should be number 1 in this list... Just the best superstar EVER!

He is the youngest player to be WWE CHAMPION

10Hulk Hogan

Hulk hogan should be number 1! He was in 7 main events at wrestlemania, won 2 royal rumble and wow the fans!

He beat undertaker he beat Andre the giant best leg drop

What the hell? Hulk Hogan is #9? Hulk Hogan is world champion. He made history is WWE. He deserves to be #1. He has beaten the best. Screw all you dumb, senseless, retarded John Cena fanboys.

I once had his WWE toy but I gave it away. Why? I don't know

The Contenders

11CM Punk

Just watch his 2011 promos... No words needed.
He has the techniques, the wrestlings skills, he is a great actor and he ist the best on the microphone in the roster today (and maybe for all time).
But what is most important: He makes WWE interesting even in the worst PG times! Rock, Austin, Taker, H, HBK... So much talent, shows had to be good. But CM Punk has to bring it just on his own!

You hear the words Best In The World you know exactly who is the best in the world CM Punk! Great at mic that's for sure great at wrestling that ones a definitely. He's great at everything! If he is The Best In The World he should be The Best Wrestler In The World! No, not only that he should be Number 1! Yeah, and CM Punk haters I can bet you 10$ no, 100$! That there are more fans than haters. I think CM Punk Best In The World, Best Wrestler In The World, Number 1 Forever!

No doubt in this one, the most charismatic personality in the WWE, the greatest wrestler, the greatest talker, he is the whole package... Should be ranked #1. Waiting 4 him to return

He really is the best in the world

12Rey Mysterio

He is the 619 baby man he should be number 1 man come on he is better than undertaker

Although his height don't support him, he has defeated many superstars by high fly actions...
And also became 2 times world heavyweight champion and 1 time WWE champion...

Mysterio is the coolest! This short guy will knock out anyone with 619'which deserves to be the best move ever!

He has a message to everyone its not about size, its about heart and dedication

13Brock Lesnar

Why? He is in 16 in this list.

He Deserves to be top 5 in the list because he conquered The Undertaker Undefeated Streak At Wrestle mania.


Brock Lesnar Is The Best. - subhashsahu

The next big thing. He can crush anybody and he's on is to summerslam and cm punk is going down.

Brock lesnar should be in top 5 and undertaker should be in top 20

14Chris Jericho

The first ever Undisputed WWE Champion, 9 time Intercontinental Champion, He beat Stone Cold Steve Austin AND The Rock on the same night and is the best in the world at everything he does.

Not sure how this list as stuck around for years and has John Cena at the front... but Chris Jericho, Ric Flair, and so many others ranked lower then him is just retarded.

The first ever undisputed champion

Awesome WWE superstar... He should Be at top 05...

He never loose a match. He is a STREAK 173-0

He has a unbeatable streak in WCW nitro and also in WWE...If the rock is called as great one..He should be called as the greatest most favorite wwe superstar is bill goldberg..

Goldberg is the most dominant superstar EVER. HE has beaten EVERYONE, Including everyone on this list, except John Cena, and that's only because they have never thought. A no doubt FUTURE hall of famer, and a truly dominant and intimidating man. He should be above EVERYBODY on this list. He is one of the most underrated superstars of all time. Jackhammer approved.

He is the best superstar

The brother of the undertaker, he has dominated every superstar in wwe and has destroyed careers. When anyone hears the name of Kane people get a scare or fear in their mind and so Kane still is a big red monster for wwe - Shivprasadspatil

You are great. I hate those people who don't like you.

Kane is the best! If that 1997 masked Kane existed at present he would have kicked that showoff superman John Cena's ass as well as that superbeast Brock Lesnar's ass and these two wouldn't have existed today.

18Eddie Guerrero

One of the greatest superstars in smackdown! History. He is a
A one time wwe champion, 1 time united states champion, 4 time wwe tag team champion, 2 time european champion, 2 time intercontinental champion. He also won other championships during his time wrestling in other companies such as wcw, ecw, and A. Without any doubt this legendary Hall of Famer is one of the greatest wrestlers in WWE History.

He was a great wrestler

Best among the rest

19Jeff Hardy

He had contributed himself for the WWE universe with his dominant high flying actions

Jeff, Rey, and Eddie, Are people of the brave. I respect living for the moment -

He should be back to WWE.

He just deserves it, to be on top for his high-flying entertainment.

Wish he come back

20Ric Flair

"The Nature Boy" Ric Flair is the all time greatest wrestler to ever lace up a pair of boots. 16 times he held the world's heavyweight title, not to mention a multitude of other titles he won along the way. This man has dedicated his entire life to professional wrestling. No one can put on a performance like Ric Flair. His matches were worth every penny to watch. He was almost always in the main event, and he also delivered a steller performance. Highly skilled in mat wrestling as well as ring psychology he dominated wrestling for decades, Next to Ric Flair, all other wrestlers are virtually forgotten. His figure four leg lock that he acquired from the late Buddy Rogers has served him very well as the coup de grace for any opponent he faced. Once he applied it, the opponent either gave up or had his leg broken. I take my heart off to Ric Flair. He sold out main events at the venues he appeared at. There will never be another like him--never. His interview skills and command of the microphone made him even more charismatic. No tatoos, no face paint; just solid wrestling and nothing boring in his encounters both in and out of the ring. The wrestler that all other have be measured against. He's number one in every sense of the word. Winner is written all over him. He gave me more hours of pleasure watching him than all other wrestlers combined. --MMK

Woo! The nature boy, the limosine riding, jet flying, 16 time world champion! Flair began wrestling in 1972 and was a household name for many years. He wrestled in the nwa, WCW and WWE. He was a force to be wreckend with and without question a mentor to many superstars like Triple H, batista and Randy orton. Flair had matches against Harley race, Ricky the dragon steamboat and sting.

Ric is also selfless. He even said that he didn't mind if Cena broke his record.

20 he should be in the top ten
