The Top Ten

1
The Undertaker
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

This isn't the most popular wwe wrestlers, this is the best of the popular characters, and if there is anybody who deserves to be at the top, it is the Undertaker, why is he so great? He has been in the business longer than anybody else and still wrestles, Hulk Hogan is in the business but doesn't wrestle, The Undertaker has been everybody's favorite and that's because he is genuine to us, he has only been in the wwe

2The Rock
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

3Stone 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.
Austin was quoting mcmahon " the best wwf superstar in wrestling history" guys a legend man. Austin 3:16 shirts are sold more than anything else even " boots to asses " etc. He singlehandedly caused wcw's downfall. Guys a legend

anthonybecerra831

5Shawn Michaels
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
"Approaching to the ring, From San Antonio, Texas, HE IS THE HEART BRREAK KID, SHAWN... MichaelS! " God I will never ever forget that part of his Hall of Fame Tribute. This guy had a great sense of humor in and out of the ring, unlike other wrestlers. There will never be a man like HBK, EVER! Especially as a wrestler. The Showstopper, Mr. Wrestlemania, the legendary Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels will never be forgotten. Not even in a trillions of trillions of trillions years in the WWE World Wrestling Enterainment.
He is the icon, the show stopper, mr. Wrestlemania,
He will never be forgotten
Because he is the best

6Triple H
He is the Chief Operating Officer. HE STILL IS THE BEST INRING SUPERSTAR ALIVE. The universe stand tall when TRIPLE-H took the sledge hammer and
Pounded it on the DAMN nash's jaw and send him to fiery hell.
He's won basically every title! Beaten basically every opponent! Legends like The rock and Undertaker have fallen at his feet! He has got Charisma, strength and the perfect look for a wwe superstar!
He been wrestling for 20 years now he defeated Undertaker, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and Stone Cold he beated almost every top dog Past and Present

7Hulk Hogan
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,

12Edge
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

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
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. "

13Kane
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

17Sting
The Icon. He and The Undertaker are the two best things that happened to the wrestling business.
Charismatic, entertaining and arguably the epitome of WCW when it was at its peak.
C'mon! The best are all down here! C'mon!

18Goldberg
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.

19Booker T

Wow what an athlete. i admit his gimmick is terrible now, but imo he still can deliver the best matches among any active wwe wrestler (not including injured wrestlers). booker t we miss the old gangsta booker.


20Kurt Angle
what a wrestler! he is the best wrestler in TNA (tie with joe) and im so glad hes not in that pile of crpa u guys call WWE anymore.
He's just a sexy kurt! he'll make your ankle hurt! Hehe if anyone remembers that spoof when kurt was in a rivalry with shawn michaels then kudos to you

21The Cuban Assassin

22Big Show
I love the big show. He should be one of the top ten

23Chris Jericho
Wrestler, writer, dancer, actor, lead singer of a rock band... First ever undisputed WWE champion... Held inter continental title a record 9 times.. invented money in the bank.. Help put over guys like John Cena and CM Punk and dolf ziggler and daniel bryan... held over 30 titles between WWE, ecw and wcw... what more do ya want?

24The Great Khali
He does the greatest show! He makes me really like wrestling again

25Eddie Guerrero

The reason he is not in the Top 10 is because you keep disrespecting him you think Randy Orton was right to say Eddies in Hell How would you like it if you died and people said you're in hell

Greenday

You will be missed,RIP Eddie


26Ric Flair
His retired now so you should be voting for him as a tribute

Greenday

Without Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan in the 80's there is no wrestling now.

27Owen Hart

28Doink the Clown

29The Ultimate 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

30Mil Mascaras

31The American Dream Dusty Rhodes
the most influential wrestler of all time. he is a prime example of going from nothing to glory. what a wrestler

arhymemaster


32Daniel Bryan
Best wrestler in the world today. He spent a long time on the independant circuit where he is the best of all time.
I have the same birthday as Daniel bryan
Best wrestler on the planet. SCSA of this era

33Andre The Giant Roussimouf
The original super heavyweight,may his soul rest in peace

34Macho Man Randy Savage

35Bruno Sammartino
Everthing is wrong rick flair should be at least top 5

36Rowdy Roddy Piper

Huge draw during his time and also one of the best mic men in the business. Pipers pit was the best part of wrestling for the longest time. I only watch when he is involved the best in my opinion.


37Hornswoggle

to be sure, to be sure(in irish accent) he will kick your ass!


38Lex Luger

39Mr. Perfect

40Mankind

41Yokozuna

42Tatanka

43Giant Gonzales

44A.J. Styles
He's not just a wrestler, he's an inspiration and a hero to all who watch him compete! I can't wait for him to become TNA champ again. He deserves it!
He is the phenomenal one! No matter is he's a heel or a face the fans still cheer for him

45Kerry Von Erich

Awesome physical specimen died young but was NWA champ and WWE Intercontinental Champ, also many WCCW titles.


46Brusier Brody

47Matt Hardy

One of the most underrated superstars of all time. Able to deliver in both single and team matches.


48Ultimate Warrior

49Rob Van Dam

50Chris Benoit

51John Morrison
One of the coolest and amazingest wwe superstars ever

52Bob Backlund

53Papa Shango

54Ricky The Dragon Steamboat

55Jake the Snake Roberts

56Jim Londos

Drawing Power: First wrestler to bring large numbers of women fans to the arenas. Londos even sold a beefcake calendar of himself in wrestling togs with a muscleman pose at the beach. The fact that he could draw sellouts against Primo Carnera in the Fifties coming-out-of-retirement matches is a testimony to his charisma. He also drew well in a later Australian tour.
