Top Ten Best WWE Rivalries

The Top Ten

The Rock vs Stone Cold

This is not up for debate. They took the WWE to unseen heights and never gave us a boring match. They could both play the Face and Heel roles as good as the other. While HBK or HHH used politics and bullying to move up the ladder, The Rock and Stone Cold made it with pure skill and character. When they were together, it was must see TV and rhe WWE knew it.

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!

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.

Who else can headline 3 wrestlemanias and one of them not being a title match? I'll tell you who, The Brahma Bull, jabroni beating pie eating trailer blazing eyebrow raising peoples champ The Rock and The Texas Rattle Snake, beer drinking Hell raising toughest son of a bitch to ever wrestle Stone Cold Steve Austin. When these two got in the ring together, it was just magic and I can die in piece knowing I got the chance to see them both wrestle! And go toe to toe not once but many times!

Shawn Micheals vs Bret Hart

One of the best legendary rivalries of all time in terms of both personal and professional standpoint of view.


Two of the greatest and legendary wrestlers of all time feud.

All you need is to watch the dvd of this rivalry, they both started in hall of fame tag teams, then became some of the greatest IC champs ever and world champs and had a hall of fam singles career, plus there rivalry at wrestlemania 12 with shawn not shaking bret's hand and the montreal scewjob. Arguably the greatest rivarly in history.

A real rivalry That was the most important wrestling rivalry in 90s. A rivalry That create a new era of wrestling: the attitude era and become the finish of monday night Wars.

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

Steve Austin vs Vince McMahon

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!

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.

Cause Stone Cold Said So!

Stone cold hitting Mr. McMahon with a bedpan in the hospital.
Hosing down the ring from a beer truck.

Could go on but you get the idea.

Cena vs Orton

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.

Randy Orton was the greatest heel at that time and John Cena was the face, that is all that Raw needed Smackdown had everybody else (Triple H, Edge, Hardy, Undertaker etc. ) and Raw still was more interesting because of the Randy Orton VS John Cena Rivarly

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!

John Cena and Randy Orton is the best WWE wrestlers ever and thy both are super rivals when they both see each other they want tear each other apart!

Shawn Micheals vs Undertaker

Two men who have been in the business for so long, yet still created their best rivalries in their later days. This rivalry stands out among the rest, as an example of a long term rivalry, which isn't built on a couple of months of heated aggression, but one of years of tension, determination and respect. This is a rivalry of the highest class, which produced the single best Wrestlemania Performance.

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!

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!

In my opinion, the HBK vs HHH street fight is the best Summerslam match ever, and my personal favourite match in WWE. They kept the rivalry fresh, it never got boring and should be way higher up in this poll

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

Edge vs John Cena

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.

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.

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.

John Cena's greatest rival is Edge, They fight for the WWE Championship in 2006 and the World Heavyweight Championship in 2009.

Rey Mysterio vs Eddie Guerrero

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

Rey mysterious is the best

Great rivalry both men where the best performers in wwe when they clashed and how eddie and rey wrestled angainst each other was classic and will never be forgetten RIP Eddie guerrero

two of the best wrestlers ever simply fantastic

Edge & Christian vs The Hardys vs Dudleys

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

I can reljve every moment of it on DVD

All were very enthuaiaatists

Greatest ladder matchs ever

Chris Jericho vs Shawn Michaels

Duh... Its Y2J Vs HBK. Period.

Y2J VS HBK...
Show off vs show stoper

The Contenders

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.

Randy Orton also punted the whole McMahon family

Evolution and the 2009 feud rocked

Hulk Hogan vs Andre the Giant

These guys were a rivalry
# love Hogan

Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit

Two of the best technical wrestlers of all time. These two are the true definition of true wrestlers.

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

undertaker is my idol in wwe

the best feud ever in history of wwe.

CM Punk vs Jeff Hardy

Punish cm punk very extremely jeff

This was the extreme in wwe

Jeff hardy is the best.

Funk that hardy better

Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hart

23? 😃😂just type in 'montreal screwjob' and change your minds

Hulk Hogan vs Randy Savage

This was the best and to place it at 18 is tragic

Kane vs Undertaker

One of the best brother vs brother rivalries

CM Punk vs John Cena

CM Punk was John Cena's greatest opponent ever. All the matches they had were amazing, and the match they had at Money inthe Bank 2011 still is the best match of the PG era, and it remains as one of the very few 5 star matches.

The only time John Cena wasn't the "face" of WWE (besides Daniel Bryan)

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

They had interesting heat and awesome matches with electirc crowds

Stone Cold vs Bret Hart
HHH vs Randy Orton

OMG he punted half of HHH's family and they had a most powerful tag team ever Evolution, THIS IS #!

It was awesome thank you for the comment this is triple hhh

Randy vs H is the best rival

They helped seth rollens backstap dean ambrose and roman reghns

Ric Flair vs Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat
The Rock vs HHH

I’m shocked by how low this is. I’m sorry but this should never be below anything with the names Randy Orton, or John Cena in it. Especially Orton... if a sleeping pill were ever put into a human form.

The most underrated rival of all time

This was the best rivalries

Stone Cold vs Vince McMahon
Undertaker vs Triple H

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
