Top Ten Most Popular Pro Wrestlers

The Top TenXW

1The UndertakerThe Undertaker is a WWE wrestler. He debuted in 1990. He has been in WWE for 25 years and is best known for his streak at Wrestlemania: 22-1.

Hands down the most popular because nobody really ever thought he would wrestle for over 20 years, the best gimmicks, the only wrestlers that come close is John Cena, The Rock, Stone Cold, HBK and I'll throw in one more and he's the ICON Sting. I don't like Hogan because he is a straight up sell out. He can be a heel and people still will cheer for him. The only way you can prove it is to put Undertaker, John Cena and Sting in one ring together, because to me #1 Undertaker #2 John Cena #3 Sting #4 Austin #5 The Rock #8 HBK.

Even as a heel, everyone will still love him. One of very few, only few wrestlers can play heel and be popular: Undertaker, Randy Orton, Edge, Stone Cold, The Rock, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk. Not including Cena because he's really never a heel.

The Undertaker is indeed the most popular and greatest wrestler of all time. His legendary 20 plus career that he has behind him, his undefeated streak at Mania, and all his title runs are just the start of his legacy. Nobody plays their character and gimmick as well as he does. He has earned respect, which makes him the most respected wrestler, and the leader backstage. - Undertaker15-0

You're the best wrestler I have ever saw

2John CenaJohn Felix Anthony Cena Jr. is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor and reality television show host signed to WWE.

John Cena got his record breaking 10 time WWE championship this year and that's why I am voting for John Cena

BEST WRESTLER OF ALL TIME. JOHN CENA IS FUNNY AND ENTERTAINING. BEST OF THE BEST. ALWAYS THE BEST. NO CHEATS. PERFECT WRESTLER. MY LIST. MY CHOICE. HAHA - JohnCena555

I remember watching wrestling all the way back to the early eighties. I've seen a lot, and I love what John Cena has brought to wrestling. He is talented, and deserves his props.

Love you cena should be on number 1

3The RockDwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

Not the best but definitively the most popular Wrestler ever. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has made his imprint on popular culture through his wrestling accolades, movies, and the entertaining industry. The most entertaining person to watch. As far as wrestling is concerned he is definitely in the top 5.

Well I have listened many to say The Rock is famous for his best mic skill but I watched his almost all wrestling & noticed he was not only best at mic but his wrestling skills really impressive. The Rock is not only best at mic, accept it Jabronies The Rock is also best into the ring & of course The Rock has the guts, ability to take any challenge to single & many together & defeat them anytime. THE ROCK is the GREATEST wrestler of all time.

every single time he gets in that ring and on the mic the whole atmosphere just rises, and he makes hairs stand up on the back of your neck! amazing character

He is just awesome

4Stone Cold Steve Austin

I don't know Why people gonna refuse a person who got the persona to take a company like WWE which ranked 17 at his time and single handedly he take the company to the first position who made rock a real super star... He is the only super star in the history of WWE who had won only 6 times for WWE championship. But still popular than both hogan... Rock... Hitman... Ric flair... Undertaker and even his time 1996 -2001 he made every super star to work hard to compete him. He is the creator of Rock & WWE without him... I think no body can give that 100% thing to this game.

The guy was so popular he got millions of people to buy a shirt that only had the word "what?" on it.

yeah should be number one he was big for ratings one night monday night raw scored a 9.2 in the ratings I think the most ever. Now it only gets about a low 3's or higher 3. all because of the pg ratings and the stupid celebrity guest host looses a true wrestling fans. I sure do miss the attitude era - sUx2Bu

Best heel ever

5Hulk HoganTerry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.

When wrestling was at its pinnacle, there was NO ONE as popular as Hulk Hogan. Could he wrestle? No. Could he play the part? Absolutely. Put any ten wrestlers in a line-up, world wide, and more people would know who Hogan is than anyone else in the history of the sport... With the simgle possible exception of Andre the Giant.

Not the greatest but easily the most popular wrestler ever, - apachereporter

What you gonna do brother when me and my 24 inch pythons run wild on you!

Love him so much

He is my favorite guy ever I have my favorite bands and guitars and stuff but him he is more than a roll model to me but me is my favorite gut ever wean he quit I was heartbroken and sad I just can't get used to him being gone there well never be one like shawn michaels never! Shawn is better than all these wrestlers he should be number 1

Shawn should have been number 1! He's the magnet when it comes to getting attention from the people! He's one of the best wrestlers out there and he holds some of the best matches of all times. Come on! Who can ever forget the Iron Man Match in Wrestlemania 12?!

He is just the main event you have to just watch when ever he plays. He was the guy to watch every time he wrestled. He would bring new things to the wring he was just great.

Should have been number 1. Without him, WWE won't be what it is today. Many of these top WWE wrestlers won't be what they are today.

I'm like in love with guy. Not just because he's sexy but his also because he has amazing skills in the ring. Should be #1.

Randy orton is the best wrestle after John Cena and the rock.

10GoldbergWilliam Scott "Bill" Goldberg is an American actor, former professional football player, and semi-retired professional wrestler.

One of the if not strongest characters ever, literally picked everyone up and in less than a year and a half since his debut in wcw has captured a following like no other, listed win streak of 174. Great entrance theme, great in ring ability, great finisher. No one else comes close. "Who's next? "

He beat undertaker brock lesner big show batista John Cena randy orton. He's the best wrestler, he can beat HBK H. But now he's not in wrestling. I miss him very much. I think one day he will come and beat everybody in WWE

He is real giant in WWE. No one can beat him in right way to the ring. His power can unstoppable one in the ring. He is best in WWE.

He is the best one of all wrestlers

Batista is the strongest because he great khali's home turf :the Punjabi match. Batista 's definitely #1! Because he said khali " You don't know what it's like to be in a cage with "the animal".

13Sting

The Icon. He and The Undertaker are the two best things that happened to the wrestling business.

People would tune in to WCW just to see what Sting would do, and his feud with nWo changed wrestling for ever.

Icon sting want every one very time in Pakistan sting so famous and every Pakistani know sting

The only thing that is for sure about Sting is nothings for sure.

14Big ShowPaul Randall Wight, Jr. is an American professional wrestler and actor, better known by his ring name Big Show.

BIG SHOW is one of the greatest wrestler of all time.

I love the big show. He should be one of the top ten

15KaneGlenn Thomas Jacobs is an American professional wrestler, insurer, and actor. He works for WWE, and is best known by his ring name Kane.

Great wrestler. He is the king of all masked fighters and when he unmasked it was a shock to people. But he got a lot of attention

Kane is known for his destructive nature, whenever Kane comes out every one is scared and other wrestlers don't wanna mess with him - roblist

Kane is strongest, toughest, scariest monster to step in the ring with his terrifying mask and his red and black suit Kane can destroy anyone who dares to step in the ring

Biggest than bigger!

16EdgeAdam Joseph Copeland is a Canadian actor and retired professional wrestler. He is best known for his time with the American professional wrestling promotion WWE, where he performed under the ring name Edge.

29-time CHAMP is totally awesome. The Rated ARE Superstar was the first Mr. Money In The Bank, has a streak at Wrestlemania of 5-0 and is stronger, faster, smarter, quicker, awesomer and more agile than anybody in the WWE - AbdullahSaeedKhan

If you're talking WWE you're talking about Edge. The guy was super passionate about wrestling; it's sad that he had to retire. His performances were so engaging that I had goosebumps whenever I watched. I will never forget the classic "SPEAR. "

Edge put his heart and and soul into wrestling he was the ultinate bad guy then he could be the ultimate face he did everything for the fans and the only way he can't now is because of his injury other wise he would be wrestling right now

Edge hands down is my favorite because he's so good in the ring. His spear is the best!

17The Ultimate WarriorWarrior was an American professional wrestler, who wrestled, among the others, under the ring name The Ultimate Warrior for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 to 1991 and again in 1992 and 1996. During his 1998 stint in World Championship Wrestling, he was known as The Warrior.

The benchmark is beating the hulkster in terms of popularity and hogan was really the man.. It was only UW eclipsed him.. He should be #1. His memory will stay forever even if he only wrestled in a short period of time unlike the guys above

Best entertainer, his popularity in the late 80's was incredible

18CM PunkPhillip Jack "Phil" Brooks, also known by the ring name CM Punk, is an American comic book writer, actor, upcoming mixed martial artist and retired professional wrestler who is signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship.

The longest reigning WWE Champion of the modern era. Enough said.

He should be there in top 5; just because he is the best in the world from past 25 years; and nobody ever has dropped pipebombs like this super has done..
