Greatest WWE Wrestlers of All Time
« see full list
To actually find the greatest wrestler you need to look at his WHOLE carreer. Honestly the undertaker only got good with age. Shawn was one half of the most innovative tag teams of the rockers. Plus when he was with the rockers he even wrestled ric flair and Bret hart in singles matches. When he split with Marty it's still talked about today. The sexy boy ic champ stint was great. Even Jim Ross credits him the greatest ic champ. He stole how wrestlemanias which all voted match of the year), in the first hell in a cell, iron man, ladder, elimination chamber just shows that wwe trusted him for making the first the best. His return proved he's still just as good and throughout that time made all the young stars so much better ex. Jericho, angle, Cena, Kennedy, Rhodes and Dibiase, etc. And he had possibly in my opinion a perfect last year as an active wrestler, tag champ with (finally) main event against the streak an all. Which ending was my all time favorite (I cried a bit) he's the show stopper, main event, headliner, icon mr wrestlemania for a reason.
Are you kidding me?! Shawn Michaels, HBK, the Heart Break Kid, the Showstopper, the Headliner, The Main Event, the Icon, Mr. Hall of Fame, the Best of the Best, Mr. Wrestlemania! He is simply the most charismatic, iconic Wrestler of All Time!
Nobody is more exciting than HBK. So many unforgettable matches, incredible rivalries, beautiful moves...
Won the first Hell in a Cell, was in the first Ladder match, first one hour Iron Man match, first Grand Slam Champion, won two Royal Rumble and have the record for the most eliminations in cumulative Royal Rumbles...
This Man is the History of Wrestling and deserve the first place hands down. Whatever people think, the true fans knows that he is.
And if you're not down with that, I got two words for ya...
PS: Sorry if my English is not that good but I'm French.
The Icon, the show stopper, the main event, the heart break kid,
Mr. Wrestlemania, mr. Hall of fame the one and only Shawn Michaels, I mean I really don't know how many names like these he has to be given for people to see that HE is THE Sports Entertainer! All his accolades, all his wrestlemania classics his charisma, his charm, his drive, his passion for this business and most importantly his longevity and loyalty to this business is like that of none other. He is a living legend. Heel, face, tweener, doesn't matter, he always made you feel a feeling like none other! Anything he's touched has turned to gold! #1!
No doubt about.
Lets see he was in the first ever Elimiation Chamber, first ladder match, first Iron Man match, first Hell In A Cell match, and was in the three greatest matches in WWE/WWF history against Undertaker twice at WrestleMania and against Bret "The Hitman" Hart in an Iron Man match, he has always put his heart out in the ring in every single match and can face the worst wrestlers and make a 5 star match out of it every time. When Shawn Michaels has a match you can be promised its gonna be a great show. He's not called the Show Stopper for no reason, he's the Icon, Show Stopper, Mr WrestleMania, the Heartbreak Kid, and he's simply the Greatest Wrestler there has every been!
The heartbreak kid shawn michaels! Mr wrestlemania, the showstoppa, headliner, the main event is at #3 what? Hbk is the best man! Whether he wins / loss, title fights or not he steals the show every time.. 4-times champ it doesn't matter if other guys have more, championships doesn't matter much now in the industry, its just like a stepping stone, look at the current champs today like the miz and other no names? What the hell is that< right? But if championship and accomplishments are what you are looking for, then HBK Shawn Michaels, is the first grand slam champ in the WWE
First Ever grand slam champion. Competed in the first wwe ladder match, first hell in a cell match, first iron man match, first tag team falls count anywhere match. He is a wwe, world heavyweight, IC, multiple tag team, and european champion. He's won about 10 match of the year awards (1993,1994,1995,1996,2004,2005,2006,2007,2008,2009,2010) And probably the undertaker vs, h match which he refereed. And the fact WWE superstars already crowned him #1 in the top 50 superstars of all time dvd.
The most entertaining superstar of all time, mr Wrestlemania, below John Cena. Are you kidding me? All these kids thinking Cena is funny and entertaining. You wouldn't know funny if it hit you over the head. You want funny and entertaining, is a million times better than Cena. And Michaels will always create moments that will last far longer than anyone elses. No one has ever had a better night, from entrance to exit, than Michaels at Wrestlemania XIX.
Shawn is the best so everyone can just suck it. Went through some bad years in DGX but is well known for flying over the top ropes only to just pull him self back in the rink. Or his legendary kick up from the floor back to his feet. He beat the Best there is the best their was and the best there ever will be. Best finisher ever in my book.
Cena sucks how is he higher up in this list than someone who can actually wrestle like Shawn Michaels. He has multiple classic matches which is nothing that John Cena will ever do.
The 2 WrestleMania matches against Undertaker
Shawn Michaels vs Kurt Angle Wrestlemania 21
Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hart- 60 min iron man match
Shawn Michaels vs Mankind
Shawn Michaels vs H- Summerslam 2002
And most of all wrestled the first ladder match with Scott Hall at Wrestlemania 10
HBK is the most dynamic performer ever to grace a wrestling ring. He had the ability to innovate a style in the ring that made even the most ridiculous-sounding gimmick match (ladder match, iron man, elimination chamber, etc. ) into a classic. He also had to carry the WWF during their down period and help usher in the Attitude Era. For God's sake, he broke his back, took four years off, came back and was still better than 99% of the roster!
Never had a bad match. Greatest wrestler of all time. He is what all wrestlers strive to be. When he came back after his injury he told the WWE that he did not want to be champion and he pushed younger talent like CM Punk. He was so good that he got into the hof 1 year after he retired. His finisher was the best finisher of all time simply because he could hit it from any position. Whoever voted for anybody else is the stupidest person alive.
Best performer ever lived. Every single year since 2004 to 2010 he performed in the matches of the year. He's never back down for any challenge. (First Hell in a Cell, first ladder match, first Elimination chamber, first Iron Man match,... ). And D-Generation X is unstoppable as well. The dude is a LEGEND!
Shawn is the greatest performer in wrestling history. So much so that his moves are reflected by the guys like Ziggler with the Superkick and Rock with the Kip-Up. He wrestled from age 18 to age 45. He made the ladder match. He made the iron man match. He won match of the century against Bret Hart in that iron man match. He is one of only 4 superstars to win the Rumble twice, and one of only three to win it in consecutive years. He was the winner of the first Elimination Chamber, his second match after returning from a back injury. He's main evented 56 PPVS and on top of all that, he sings his own theme song!
I love this guy when he wrestled. He was a great man in and out of the arena. But on one night, Everything changed. "The Phenom" The Undertaker wrestled the legendary HBK at Wrestlemania 26, and Shawn Michaels career was on the line. He was actually the closest to beating The Undertaker, until that Tombstone ended HBK's 25 year career. Now HBK rarely even shows up and The Undertaker wrestles only once a year, I am now waiting for Batista to come back and do some butt-kicking. THE BOYHOOD DREAM HAS COME TRUE WITH SHAWN MichaelS!
The to ever lace up a pair of boots and the best who will EVER put on a pair of boots michael has the most matche's of the year award has the most 5 star matches rated by david melch or whoever michael could tell a story when he was in the ring its breaks my heart knowing that shawn michaels lost 4 years of his career due to a back injury because he could of went on to win more titles than anybody else but only winning 4 I also should add the he did not the title to look good he was good the best to ever step in a ring when michaels broke his back he didn't have to come back matter of fact his doctor's told him not to come back knowing that he did just to entertain us is a AMAZING THING he has touched my life I am completly 100 percent honnored to say I have been in the same building as shawn michaels and I watched him performed
Shawn Michaels is a greatest superstar in Wwe and my favorite all times. He gave every match in best performense most of wrestlemania's matches and he gave unbelievable performance in WM25 &WM26 face to undertaker no other superstar gave batter performence than hbk so I think undertaker name is correct position but john cena and rock names is wrong position hbk's name should be second position and cena and rock 3rd & 4th no.
Wow wow wow his smack is really attracted me. And Rey Mysterio also my favorite... Shawn well well
HBK as number four. That sounds fine with me. He is my all-time favorite wrestler. I got so mad after Wrestlemania 26 Since the legendary HBK Shawn Michaels got his career lost to THE best of the all of the best wrestlers named,"The Phenom" The Undertaker! I still respect both men to this day. Now since HBK Is rarely seen, and The Undertaker wrestlers once a year, I do not know what to do to either stop watching WWE for life or just wait patiently for "The Animal" Batista to come back and do some ass-whopping, which to me is "Best for Business" right there.
I am Shawn Michales Biggest FANN! I love him so much and I just wish he would come back for the people who truley love him and I really do love cena and the undertaker but he should be above themm both because he is truely amazing and I would love to see him come back I was so exicted when he was abducted into the hall of fame and yaa so I want him to come back and to me hell always bee the the hot guy from texas who I love the most!
He is the best... He is the heart break kid! He can beat Steve Austin if Mike Tyson was banned from ringside... He is also very stylish boy... He could beat all the WWE superstars... He could not beat Cena & Undertaker because he was a bit too old... That's why he retired... Still HBK will live on forever better than Rock, Cena, taker, H, batista, Orton and anybody... LOVE YOU HBK!
John cena and the rock is better than hbk that is the reason I stop watch wwe only idiot cena kids watch wwe today, hbk is the best of all time offical list
Hbk is number 1 at top 50 superstars of all time
Best wwe title match hbk vs bret hart iron man match
Best match of all time hbk vs undertaker wm25 (many people think it is best)
He vs john cena (raw show 2007), undertaker (wm26,25), ric flair (wm24), kurt angle was the match of the year so what rock and cena yheir match at wm (28,29) was too boring and match of the year 2013 will be lesnar vs h wm29 I'm sure
The most charismatic, the most resilient, the most heartbreaking and showstopping superstar ever... He was a part of-the first ever hell in cell, iron man match, ladder match, elimination chamber... Was the first person to win consecutive royal rumbles one of dem as the first entrant... People still love him and would be more than happy if he returns as a gm or something.
Hbk is the best of all time. He is the greatest man of all time. He had defeated every men in the wwe history like the undertaker(hell in a cell 1997), stone cold, hulk hogan, bret hart, and so on. Though there is undertaker, triple h, hbk are in the the middle of the ring people are supporting for hbk. He is the one who has entertained whenever he had stepped into the ring.
Shawn Michaels was charasmatic, talented, and skilled. Him and bret carried the business on there backs and paved the way for stone cold, even the other wwe superstars voted him the number 1 wrestler in the history of pro wrestling. He stole every show when he competed, every wrestlemania he was involved in, he either stole the show or had on of the top matches. It sad that he is retired now.
ARE YOU KIDDINg ME?! SHAWN MICHAELS! THE HEARTBREAK KID! THE ICON! THE HEADLINER! THE MAIN EVENT! MR. WRESTLEMANIA! MR. HALL OF FAME! ARE YOU STUPID? HE'S THE BEST THERE IS THE BEST THERE WAS AND THE BEST THAT WILL EVER BE! SWEET CHIN MUSIC? THE BEST MOVE YOU CAN COME UP WITH? WHO KICKED OUT ON THE FIRST TOMBSTONE? SHAWN DID! GET YOUR FACTS TOGETHER! NO ONE CAN BEAT HIM!
