The Undertaker, The Phenom, The Deadman, The Demon Of Death Valley, The Lord Of Darkness whatever you want to call him he is simply put the greatest WWE superstar of all time. He debuted in 1991 as part of The Million Dollar Man's 'Dream Team' and was undefeated for three years in singles and tag team competition. His career has been one which has brought many many good storylines and have been very enjoyable to watch. He is the only true legend left in WWE now, 20-0 at Wrestlemania a streak that is icomprable and one which I believe will never be broken, he has Done evening there is to do in WWE. Everything that he has accomplished has made him the most feared, respected and tenured competitor in WWE history, without a doubt the one example that comes to mind for that would be at the legendary Ric Flair's Farewell Ceremony where The Undertaker's signature Gong tolled and everyone came out of the ring, stood at either side of the ramp and 'allowed' The Phenom to make his entrance and ...more - jamesmacgregor

2Steve AustinSteve Austin (born Steven James Anderson on December 18, 1964, later Steven James Williams), better known by his ring name "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, is an American actor, media personality, producer, and retired professional wrestler who is signed to a legends contract for WWE. more.

I love stone cold steve austin they will never have another wrestler who can have the crowd of their feet with just the mention of they name. He is just the best they ever had

Come on when he pointed the gun at Vince's head it was one of the all time greatest moments in television history. I mean stone cold saved the WWE at time when wcw was hot on the trail of toppling it. While there's been a few glimmers here and there of new stars to take his place no one has made the WWE as interesting as Austin did back in the late 90s. Everyone was watching Monday night raw and dreaming of being able to do to their bosses what stone cold did to Vince. It was the best story line in wrestling of all time. I mean when he drove the beer truck into the area. It was pure brilliance

Why should Stone Cold be on the top of this list? Because Stone Cold Said So. He was the best badass the WWE has ever seen. He was way better than any wrestler. I mean come on, how many wrestlers bring a beer truck near the ring and hose Mcmahons and the Rock

The best ever!,

3John CenaJohn Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand. more.

John Cena does so much for the WWE and is a really hardworking person he cares about fans he's funny and entertaining.

He is the best wrestler in WWE history
He never gives up
He can kick out anybody finishing move
Just watch out John Cena is here in this world

John Cena is the best wrestler he has almost beat each and every wrestler in WWE and we can hope that john is the one who will break undertaker's streak, as you have seen john's increasing his status day by day, he is the one who will defeat The Undertaker and he is the one who will defeat the rock...

Awesome you can't see me

4The 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.

Are you guys crazy?!?! The rock is the MOST ELECTRIFYING MAN IN ALL SPORTS! He kicked undertakers ass and kicked John Cena's ass and will kick it again at wrestlemania 28 and not to mention that he WILL LAYETH THE SMACKETH DOWN ON EVERY WRESTLER'S CANDY ASS that faces him in the ring

Oh yeah! It is the greatest one, danger man of world wrestling. No one is like him. He is totally different than any other wrestlers. His attraction works into the left side of the heart of the people and this is why he is the champ of people. Only the rock is able to electrify when he plays. He is perfect with his body shape, body language and his height. He is also a good speaker with good logic. His entrance is a threat of all wrestlers. The rock has come back to win over everyone. Nothing can stop him. The rock will bring it.

I don't think anyone is here in WWE to match-up with the rock.

Finally the rock has com back...

5Shawn MichaelsShawn Michaels was born on July 22, 1965 . He is an American professional wrestler. He is the first wrestler to win all the titles the WWE could have offered. He is known for his moves and looks. His nickname provided by WWE is HBK (Heart Break Kid). He was in DX (Degeneration X) a tag team with Triple more.

The most charismatic WWE superstar of all time! #3? Are you kidding me?

Hbk is the greatest wrestler of all time, hands down. He could beat anyone anywhere. He beat undertaker in the first ever hell in a cell and was in the first ever ladder match and he also came the closest to beating The Undertaker at wrestlmania. HBK FOR LIFE

Yep HBK the best of best the cream of the crop the master of master the legend of legend one of the most favorite wrestlers seen I think it is so totally safe to say that HBK The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels is the greatest Wrestler Ever!

He is the best of all time in WWE

6Triple HPaul Michael Levesque, better known by his ring name Triple H, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler, corporate executive, and actor.

In the past 16 years of his career he have owned all other superstars ranging from The Undertaker to John Cena he should be on the top already. H is the best superstar to ever step foot in the squared circle.

If we start dissecting wrestling into single skills (in-ring abilities, mic skills, etc) Triple H is not the best at any particular aspect, but yet he embodies the spirit of wrestling like no others in my humble opinion. His charisma is outstanding and he can be awesome both as a heel and as a babyface. Although he was mostly (as a heel) a self-absorbed, arrogant character, he actually made a whole lot of other talents shine (Shawn Michaels, Batista, Orton, Cena just to name a few) and never refused a job. No single wrestler in the world (except Ric Flair) can match his career (in terms of longevity and accomplishments). For all these things he is the greatest (in my humble opinion).

He's coming back at the Rumble or b4 Christmas - SmoothCriminal

You are the best

7Hulk HoganTerry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.

Hulkster must be @ #1.. He made the wrestling more popular.. WWE ran into a billion dollar industry and paved way for today's high paid stars.. He ruled Wrestling over 2 decades. Hogan is beyond icon in the wrestling world. You ask anyone who he is and they know for the most part.

His ability to sell tickets is unmatched by anyone. His past matches basically have proven that if you work a program with this guy, then you are going to get noticed.

He has never been the best worker and he has the tendency not to put people over, but face facts, fans, there is nobody more charismatic than this man.

Hulkamania is a legend... He made the wrestling more entertaining... Even Arnold is a huge fan of him... Hulk Still Rules BROTHER...

This Man Is The Real Maneger Of The WWE He Should Back To His Company.

Anyone who hasn't Hulk as number 1 are retarded or biased against him. Hogans arms are bigger than most wrestlers careers.

8Randy OrtonRandal Keith "Randy" Orton is an American professional wrestler and actor who is signed with WWE, where he is a member of the SmackDown brand. He is a 12-time world champion, having held the WWE World Championship eight times and the World Heavyweight Championship four times.

Best wrestler ever. no one defend the title night after night like Bret did.

Won the WWE champion and could have won the 1996 royal rumble but the ref didn't see him eliminate steve austin and made stone cold quit in a I quit match. - dkiller

Of course he is the best, he is number 1 because of everything:intellegent, respectful, tallent and love.

Bret Hart should be hire up he's a epic hitman

He is very small but he can even defeat the bigger players like undertaker easily by using moves like by rolling moves like tornado dot, monkey flip, bull dog etc and flying moves like moonsualt, west coast pop or etc and his best move 619

The Giant Killer, The Biggest Little Man, The Masked Maestro... He is the 2 time world heavyweight champion, former WWE champion, 4 time WWE tag team champion, 3 time cruiserweight champion, 5 time WCW cruiserweight, 2 time intercontinental champion you GOT to love him...

11CM 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.

One of the most talented wrestlers in the WWE. CM Punk is the total package and he is incredible on the mic.

CM Punk deserves to be on the top ten because Punk is the Best in the World. There are a few Superstars as influential to the WWE Universe as CM Punk. Always controversial, Punk has never been afraid to speak to his mind. Having won multiple World Championships, Punk has the skills to back up his words and the ambition to inspire change in WWE. He caused an uproar in 2011 when he left the company with the WWE Championship in hand. But his controversial absence paid dividends, as he became a fan favorite upon his eventual return.

This pisses me off, CM Punk is the Best in the ring and on the mic. He can cut promos better than Stone Cold, The Rock, John Cena, and everybody else in WWE of all time. He has put on great matches that will be remembered for ever. He is the only two time Money in The Bank Winner! He is the greatest WWE Champion of not only the modern era, of ALL TIME. 434 days as WWE Champion, more than John Cena, The Rock, The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret Hart, and Shawn Michaels. PEOPLE OPEN YOUR EYES CM Punk HAS BEEN THE BEST IN THE WORLD SINCE DAY ONE GIVE HIM SOME RESPECT ALREADY.

Actually Edge is is a 12-time tag team champion including an unprecedented seven reigns as World Tag Team Champion with Christian. He won the 2001 King of the Ring Tournament. He is the first money in the bank winner.
He has won the royal rumble and has some elimination chamber records

He is the 11 time world heavyweight champion and 7 time WWE champion.

Edge.. should be 1 and ill tell you why. Win or loose half of WWE'S greatest moments would not have happened without him. The rated R superstar is the best. Here are just a few of his greatest moments, Spearing Jeff Hardy from a 20 foot ladder, Headlining wrestlemania against The Undertaker in an amazing match, cashing in his money in the bank against Cena, Cashing in ANOTHER money in the bank against Undertaker (winning both of them) Created the TLC match, AND HAS MORE CHAMPIONSHIPS IN ALL THAN ANY WRESTLER EVER!

13Brock LesnarBrock Edward Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler, professional American football player, and mixed martial artist who is currently signed to WWE.

Super powerful, he had to retire because he was too dangerous in the ring and caused many injures. Now he's in UFC. I don't envy whoever he fights.

I Love this guy because the beast brock lesnar most dangerous former ufc. Wwf. WWE mma on then WWE world heavyweight champion brock lesnar

In real no wrestler in WWE could even stand 10 seconds in a match with brock lesnar. He has honed the skill of mixed martial arts which makes him even more dangerous than when he arrived to the scene the first time. Cena is at no- 2 in this list only because lesnar left WWE at his peak if lesnar as been around the last decade in WWE the his stature in WWE would be even bigger than that of taker, hogan, Michaels etc. Moreover let me tell all the cena fans that the fu now (aa) is just a cheap attempt to copy of f5 don't believe me than check the record. Brock lesnar once broke the ring by slamming big show from the top this shows how much strength he has.

I think there are wrestler that can beat lesnar in fact Cena and HHH done it

His power and confident make him powerful and one of the best wrestler in WWE

He is simply awesome and he is a gatekeeper on the way of wwe superstar who want their position to be developed and it's too bad for many people because he is the baddest dude on the plane..

14KaneGlenn Thomas Jacobs is an American professional wrestler, insurer, and actor. He works for WWE, and is best known by his ring name Kane.

I remember the days when I used to watch WWE just for the masked kane! He is simply awesome.. Loved his personality and attitude! - rahulsharma1

Kane is one of the true faces of the WWE, and are we forgetting 2001? 11 eliminations, he is 3 eliminations away from breaking Shawn Michaels record for most eliminations of all time, 13 consecutive Royal Rumbles? Most of all time. Kane has a lot of history and records

The kane is very strong and the kane is first who won the match of kane vs Undertaker.

He is very good

15Chris JerichoChristopher Keith Irvine, better known by the ring name Chris Jericho, is a Canadian-American professional wrestler, musician, media personality, actor, author, and businessman, currently signed to WWE.

This really pisses me off.. Jericho 21!? Can I remind you that he is a multi time world and WWE Champion! 9 Time Intercontinental Champion! First Undisputed Champion by beating the rock and stone cold steve austin in the same night. Chris Jericho has beaten the greats like Undertaker... Kane... CM Punk... Steve Austin... Rock... Edge... Randy Orton.. Rey Mysterio... Hell He beat Shawn Michaels on consecutive occasions in the same month including defeating him to retain the world title

Who are you so ; tell chris jericho to fight greatest player of all time stone cold steve austin

Y2J is the best at what he does. This guy can play all sorts of matches-ladder, steel cage, last man standing. Plus he is one of the greatest heels of his generation along with triple H.

This is the man who defeated The Rock and Stone Cold at the same night to win the Undisputed champion man!

The list of Jericho! Drink it in maan

16GoldbergWilliam Scott "Bill" Goldberg is an American actor, former professional football player, and semi-retired professional wrestler.

Goldberg is the Man. He is very powerful and he beat all of WWE wrestlers. He beat batista, triple h, the rock, jericho, kane, batista, randy orton, ric flair, sid, hogan, sting, kevin nash, scott hall and...
His strength is in his jackhammer on big show.

Goldberg is the man with Iron Fist, you cannot simply compare him with other Wrestlers of all Generation. The people that don't believe me, they definitely need to watch his Journey in WCW, his undefeated Streak of 173-0 & all the big name like Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Raven, Triple H and list go on, were never be able to come to the level that Goldberg goes, so before commenting upon disliking this comment PLEASE first watch at least 10 matches of Goldberg...

I still have all matched of goldberg in my PC...

Not #1 but he is the strongest id say replace rey mysterio with him I think goldbergs jackhammer is awesome so much strength in him

He should be number 1

17Ric FlairRichard Morgan "Ric" Fliehr, better known by his ring name Ric Flair, is a professional wrestling manager and American retired professional wrestler currently signed to the WWE under a legends appearance contract.

The Greatest WWE/F Wrestler Of ALL Times. 2 time WWE champion. 3 time tag champion. Hall of Fame. Royal Rumble.

I love him from childhood. Most voters here are kids who don't know much about the past. Ernest Okojie

This is so outrageous and ridiculous. Ric Flair is number one no doubt about it. He has held 16 world titles, which is a world record, and he is the first and only ever two time hall of famer. I'm not just saying this because he is my favorite of all time (which is true), he has every right to be number one. Why would John Cena be three? And before I leave, I have to say, WOO!

During his 1998 stint in World Championship Wrestling, he was known as The Warrior.

He is the best. he could win every time and everybody, except his unfair enemies

Beat hulk hogan in peak hulkamania mode. Dominated undertaker in 91. Dominated andre the giant. Beat every1 that mattered in WWE from 88 to 91. Created a super hero type character with the greatest intensity

He Is The Most Prominent Wrestler And His Place Is On Number 2 because He Is Most Strategic And Full Of Stamina I Love His Style He Should Be At 2 After Goldberg

19BatistaDavid Michael "Dave" Bautista Jr. is an American actor and former professional mixed martial artist and professional wrestler.

Batista is definitely #1! He's been in hardest match ever and won. One sentence he said was " You don't know what it's like to be in a cage with animal. "

You are best wrestler in WWE! Batista when you defeat randy Orton the face of randy Orton is really very funny! And I am so angry on your friend rey mestireo I never accept this but I want to know why you friend ship is broken. I know this have great reason your oppnents do this I will never accept this but maybe this is randy orton I want broken face of under taker because I know you are a legend of WWE you have to defeat every superstar of WWE

This guy is great at wrestling, and that what I just said was one of the reasons I came here. But the MAIN reason why I came here was that 2 weeks ago from now, I had a little feeling that I was going to get a little bit POed. And that feeling just came true. And you know what it is? I'll tell you. People on the Monday Night that Batista returned started to tweet that "The Animal" will WIN the royal rumble. Which is exactly what happened last night. Now I start seeing people tweeting how Batista shouldn't even have won it or didn't even deserve to win it. Now I start hearing people booing Batista tonight? PEOPLE, What did Batista do? He's only been in the WWE for a week, and at least get a little bit more respect than this. He only won the Royal Rumble, which is impressive because it was his second royal rumble win. My point is, He's a very talented wrestler and a very athletic man. Just stop criticizing him. He didn't even do anything wrong!

Batista boom is power full

20Daniel BryanBryan Lloyd Danielson is an American retired professional wrestler best known for his tenure in WWE under the ring name Daniel Bryan.

#1 contender for the WWE title. He is the best and the fastest in momentum gainer

Daniel Bryan should be no.2 because he competed 2 times at wretlemania 30, Batista and Orton tag team him at a table but he never give up and he won the WWE World Heavyweight championship, he was attacked by Kane and got piledriver thrice and needed a neck surgery, the authority made him compete against Kane at a strecther match even he need a another neck surgery but he won again, and because of him Cena could never be a WWE World Heavyweight champion again. He should be the face of WWE because he is the flying goat

... How is he better than Owen Hart and Andre the Giant? He is an amazing wrestler all in all, and I love him but he hasn't proved enough yet to make us believe he should be on this list at all.

Best is enough
