Most Hardcore Wrestlers of All Time


The Top Ten

1 Mankind / Foley / Cactus Jack

To survive a 30 foot fall from the top of a cell, climb back up and get choke-slammed into the cell itself, then get choke-slammed on sharp needles then get back up.. Well that's extraordinary! - DJZeezo

Mick... or whatever you call him... - GuyA07

Of course foley is the top 1 hardcore competitor wrestling has ever seen. He is sadistic, shyco, crazy, he risks his own self than anyone else and no one is giving his opponent the pain and blood as foley does!

Seeing him walking is like a miracle

2 Sabu Sabu Terry Michael Brunk is an American professional wrestler, known by his ring name Sabu, who portrays an Arab American in the ring.

He has to be the most hardcore man that points his finger to the sky

Rob... Van... Dam!
The Whole F'n Show!
Mr Money In the Bank! - GuyA07

4 Terry Funk Terry Funk Terrence "Terry" Funk is an American retired professional wrestler and actor. Funk is known for the longevity of his career - which spanned 50 years and included multiple short-lived retirements - and the influential hardcore wrestling style he pioneered in the latter part of his career.

No. 7 for the guy that innovated hardcore and bleed all over this planet? Terry is almost 70 and is still in barbwire matches. I don't mind Sabu or even Cactus over the Funker but no one else

The Funkmaster will always be the most rigid hardcore diamond that anybody has ever seen

5 Sandman Sandman

Sandman should be in the top 2... He swung the Singapore Cane better than anybody else in the business.

8 Necro Butcher

Necro Butcher is the craziest guy out there. When it comes to hardcore, he really puts it all out there. Some say he is a wanna-be Mankind, but I don't think that is true. I think he is a wanna-be Necro Butcher. He's the kind of wrestler who you can tell is always trying to top himself.

He used everything... including scissors! - GuyA07

The guy took a weed whacker to the stomach, got thrown off a renters truck, and got slammed off a 2 story building on to concrete... Pretty hardcore.

YouTube: Canteen Rooftop Bump. Number 1. 'enough Said

This guy was hardcore since age 16. Fighting with hardcore stuff in his backyard with friends. Then goes onto professional. CZW. Weed wackers. Getting thrown off roofs onto tables. This guy has probably been through it all.
