Top Ten Best WWE Rivalries


The Top Ten

1 The Rock vs Stone Cold

Greatest rivalry ever! Stone cold and the rock these both have made it all for WWE and have taken it to the highest peak! The rock was young filled with talent, passion, style and the most electrifying man on the other hand it was austin who's fearless, greatest brawler, toughest SOB, beer drinking machine and who can beat the hell out of anyone and have hammered everyone down and lastly is capable to raise the crowd at their toes! Best rivalry ever!

They deserve to be these two men the number one of the major rivalries of all the times, that so pretty epoch

Best rivalry ever! Both of them were in their prime and both were the best in the business. Just wish they would have one last match and the rock lay the smack down and stone cold open a can of whoop ass what a match it would be.

There will never be another rivalry like this one.

2 Shawn Micheals vs Bret Hart

Are you series bro come on this should be the best rivalry of all time they had ladder matches iron man matches and don't forget about the Montreal screw job this rivalry is legendary

Seriously NUMBER 2! Shawn and Bret at Wrestlemania in a Iron Man match to overtime got a 2 seriously I know austin and rock was great but Michaels and Hart is LEGENDARY OK!

While these two are the best of rivals, they both almost cost WWE the Monday Night Wars when they were on Top.

3 Steve Austin vs Vince McMahon

The best feud EVER.
Even though it wasnt always Austin vs McMahon in the ring, they did wonders with this.
Everyone wanted to see someone step up to the boss, and Austin was the perfect man to do it.
Austin was the reason this feud is so awesome, his persona & Vinces persona play off each other like no other two in the history of the WWE.

Everybody thinks that The Rock vs Stone Cold Steve Austin is the greatest WWE feud. Austin was mainly feuding with Vince MacMahon, The Rock being pretty much the guy Vince went to when he wanted Stone Cold's but kicked. Plus, nobody's put there boss through as much hell as Stone Cold.

Whoever made this list is an idiot for not putting this list as number 1! Millions across the world tuned in to Monday Night Raw just to see an employee turns their boss's life into a living hell! There's car property destroyed, vandalism, riots, brawls, interrupting meetings, ruining plans, carnage, ^^ so much more that made it all so damn entertaining and exciting to watch! Who doesn't want to see that? For all who disagrees, get this to your head, "Without Austin vs. McMahon" WWE would never beat WCW in the ratings! EVER!

This is the best feud in WWE history.

4 Cena vs Orton

One of the greatest rivalries ever! When these two are in the ring against each other you can feel the electricity in the air! Should be in the top 3 I think!

In modern WWE, this feud should take a credit because no more feud in modern WWE is better than this one. countless matches. relentless wrestlers but what is the difference between cena/orton and stone cold/the rock is non-stopping blood busting open!. so, in this term, there's no feud that is better than rock/stone cold but for this PG era (damn why they change it -, - ), fair to say cena orton is the best and I think if they feud when the PG dint happen their feud maybe more more more better than rock/stone cold feud

Might be the best rivalry of the generation. Cena and Orton had awesome mathes and it was a shame Cena got injured. Sure the Rock vs Stone Cold was good but this is better and after their falls count anywhere iron man match. Best rivalry ever. Laugh out loud.

Money Making Rivalry

5 Shawn Michales vs. Undertaker

Two of the greatest WWE wrestlers of all time. These two created the greatest wrestlemania match of all time. And even whey they were both in their prime they still had unbelievable five star matches like the casket and hell In a cell match, which held great significance to the WWE and have a lot of historical value

Wow yes I think this was a good rivalry also but when it came to wrestlemania shawn lost the big one and that caused his career to end but he will be in his best friend side at wrestlemania 29... But anyway I live you shawn Michaels

Wrestlemania 26 the best match could be possibly done!

Great match Shawn took the dead man to the distance

6 Edge vs John Cena

This is the best rivalry of all time because they made you feel like they really hated each other and their chemistry was like no other! Whenever people saw these two men in the same ring they knew they were in for a match and it was so charismatic before the match even started.

There Rivalry was so good, that WWE basically brought it back in 2009 and made it a Mania Main Event. Edge and Cena have that chemistry of two who after fighting for so long, know each others weaknesses and strengths and they use all they have to counter or be aware of what will happen. Edge knows Cena's weakness is not expecting Spears and Cena knows Edge's ultimate weakness if Cena's STFU's.

Edge uses to capture the wwe champion and world heavyweight champion too the john cena to

No pair can have as much charisma and as much chemistry as these two when in the ring. In the ruthless aggresion era, this rivalry is hands down the best.

7 Triple H vs Shawn Michaels

This rivalry saw a Unsanctioned Street Fight at Summerslam 2002, the first ever Elimination Chamber match at Survivor Series 2002, a Three Stages of Hell match at Armageddon 2002, another Elimination Chamber match at Summerslam 2003, a match on the December 29th 2003 episode of Raw, a Last Man Standing match at Royal Rumble 2004, a Triple Threat Match at WrestleMania 20 and finally, a 47 minute war inside Hell in a Cell at Bad Blood 2004. This is better than Stone Cold vs The Rock!

Lead to the first and I think greatest survivor chamber match. Add the best triple threat match ever at wrestlemania between them and Chris Benoit. Mix in some three stages of hell, hell in the cell and a great last man standing match, and it was the rivalry which saw the return of michaels after his back injury. It is is my favourite of all time

An extremely tough rivalry with all the dramatic elements: championships, friendship, injuries, secondary main wrestlers... Maybe the best I've ever seen

8 Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero

two of the best wrestlers ever simply fantastic


Rey mysterious is the best

They are the best rivale in WWE history and I think rey mysterio is great and so is eddie guerrero but if it comes to rey mysterio vs eddie guerrero I would have to choose rey mysterio by a mile. I remember rey mysterio and eddie guerrero used to be the best of best frends then they became worst frends in WWE history

9 Edge & Christian vs The Hardys vs Dudleys

HBK may have revolutionized the ladder match, but these 3 teams perfected it. - andrewXmetallica92

All were very enthuaiaatists

I can reljve every moment of it on DVD

Greatest ladder matchs ever

10 Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels

Duh... Its Y2J Vs HBK. Period.

Show off vs show stoper

The Contenders

11 Randy Orton vs Triple H

This two have became one of the greatest rivals ever since in 2004 up till early 2009, when Randy Orton was betrayed by Triple H and his group Evolution. But coming up to 2009 when Randy Orton RKO Triple H real life wife, things started to get hetty between Triple H and Randy Orton, as Triple H went to Randy Orton home and attack him. Even with Randy Orton by kissing Triple H wife.

Evolution and the 2009 feud rocked

Randy Orton also punted the whole McMahon family

12 Undertaker vs Mankind

How the hell can you forget that HELL IN A CELL MATCH where Mankind was thrown from the top of the ring and all those dangerous pins in the ring. An epic match. Any wrestling fan after watching this match will go crazy. This rivalry should have been at number 1. Show some respect to Undertaker. If you want you can criticize him but remember we cannot ever lift Mark Henry or big show the way he lifts them. We are all too weak compared to that legendary man. We can just say and write things about him but cannot even perform one of his actions in the ring

The best ever mick showed taker he was flesh and blood

the best feud ever in history of wwe.

16 Ric Flair vs Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
17 Stone Cold vs Bret Hart
18 CM Punk vs John Cena

Even though it's a newer rivalry its still one of the better ones, they had some bad blood and went on for a while and I think it deserves to be higher on the list, maybe not top 5 but it deserves to be up there

It's the biggest rivalry I am grateful to have experienced.

This is a big Rivalry

Their wrestlemania series were great and they are two of the most respected wrestlers who always wanted to be the best in the business!

Played each other a lot at wrestle mania and it was always a good fight.

Undertaker and hhh 3 times faces each other at wrestlemania


27 Lita vs Trish Stratus

There is a reason why their match was the main event on Raw. The build-up, the story line, and the climax of this rivalry was intense. It doesn't even matter who was face or heel. These two women are not just Divas, but SUPERSTARS!

Even divas could be better than some superstars

One of the greatest rivalries ever!

28 Undertaker vs Edge

Best rivalry of 2008


Me fez começar assistir wwe

29 Matt Hardy vs Edge

This was easily the most interesting rivalry of 2005 due to the worked-shoot style of the whole thing. This not only brought in wide spread media attention, but also catapulted the career of edge by making him the most dispicable heel of his era.

30 John Cena vs The Rock

I think wrestlemania 28 is greater than wrestlemania 29 because wm 28 is one year hard working the most epic match I ever seen rock is most greatest than john cena ever I love rock more than cena iam the rock biggest fan of all time

Great feud with their raps and they put on two great matches.

Wrestlemania 28 great match
Wrestlemania 29 absolute travesty and the crowd was dead once cena won - htoutlaws2012

Way better than Stone Cold
