Top Ten Best WWE Rivalries


The Top Ten

1 The Rock vs Stone Cold

Amazing rivalry no doubt

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

There will never be another rivalry like this one.

3 Steve Austin vs Vince McMahon

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.

This is the best feud in WWE history.

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.

4 Cena vs Orton

Biggest rivalry in the ruthless aggression and PG eras!

The best 2 wrestlers in the WWE & edge

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!

Money Making Rivalry

5 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.

Under taker

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

6 Triple H vs Shawn Michaels

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

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

My opinion they are the best rivalry

7 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

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

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

Randy Orton also punted the whole McMahon family

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

12 Kurt Angle vs. Chris Benoit

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

13 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.

These guys were a rivalry
# love Hogan

15 CM Punk vs Jeff Hardy

This was the extreme in wwe

Jeff hardy is the best.

Punish cm punk very extremely jeff

Funk that hardy better

16 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

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

18 Stone Cold vs Bret Hart
19 HHH vs Randy Orton

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

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

Randy vs H is the best rival

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

How is this #22?!

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

Faces each other a lot of time

22 Kane vs Undertaker

One of the best brother vs brother rivalries

23 Stone Cold vs Vince McMahon
24 Shawn Michaels vs Bret Hart

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

25 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


26 Lita vs Trish Stratus

Best women rivalry of all times

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!

One of the greatest rivalries ever!

Even divas could be better than some superstars

27 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

John Cena becomes a Heel Turn Egomania Sellout talks about his storyline, tweeners & force people to quit booing him and showing him some Love & Respect because he Rise Above Love & Respect.

28 Undertaker vs Edge

Best rivalry of 2008

Me fez começar assistir wwe


29 Batista vs Undertaker

The best rival but only in 24 are you kidding

Must be in top ten rivalries list

This must be the 2nd or 1st, it doesn't belong in this place

This is the top 3 riverly of all time ffs.

30 D-Generation X vs The McMahons


I will never forget that moment when was in the production truck and messed with Vince. That was gold - KingSlayer93316

This rivalry was the best ever! So many epic moments and hilariousness :D SO ENTERTAINING AND FUNNY

And McMahon's rivalry will go down in the history books

It is the best

31 Randy Orton vs Undertaker

Remember way back when the undertaker terrorized Randy Orton because Randy tried to "kill" the undertaker?

All of the build up and reputations feuded what would be the best rivalry of all time, the constant mind games just made it better and whenever I hear orton or undertaker, thisnis what I think about

Legend killer vs legend this feud lasted for 9 month. Randy orton introducing him self to the deadman by giving him an Rko. Undertaker knew what was coming. So on they feud at wm21 orton fail to end the streak. Orton then attacking undertaker on smackdown with a surprise rko on taker

32 HHH vs Austin

Rattlesnake, hit by a car, forklifted the car, pulled the ref out of his title match, screwed eachother out of the title, signed the contract to not atack eachother so stone cold stunnered stephanie and HHH pedigreed JR! The most intense ersonal fued in WWE history!

33 Cena vs Edge

One Of the Best

34 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.

35 Cena vs HHH
36 HHH vs Batista
37 Matt Hardy vs Jeff Hardy
38 Ambrose vs Rollins

One of the only good PG rivalries. This rivalry was gold - KingSlayer93316

39 Triple H vs Brock Lesnar

This one was absolutely intense! Come on Lesnar broke his arm twice for pete's sake. Such a fearsome rivalry!

40 Undertaker vs Kane

Devil's favourite demon vs The Deadman

How the hell are The Legendary Brothers Of Destruction on no.29 what happens if they brothers their rivalry is one of the best they will fight each other but if you mess with with one you have to mess with both one raised from the darkness of grave and the other raised from fiery depths of hell the big red machine and the demon of death valley they are the legendary the on and only THE BROTHERS OF DESTRUCTION!

I know they are brothers. But that is what makes them amazing rivals. Both are tall, have long hair, scary faces and very powerful. Epic!

What on blue earth is dis...this should at least be in top 10...two legends of d game and their rivalry in no.31...what a shame...
