2 Bret Hart Bret Hart Bret Sergeant Hart, better known by his ring name Bret "The Hitman" Hart, is a Canadian-American writer, actor and retired professional and amateur wrestler. A member of the Hart wrestling family and a second-generation wrestler.

The best there is. The best there was and the best there ever will be. Not just a tagline but the honest truth

Great wrestler

Bret Hart is one of the best wrestlers that utilizes submissions well. No body can do the sharpshooter like him. Not The Rock, not Sting & not anyone else in my opinion.

3 Kurt Angle Kurt Angle Kurt Steven Angle is an American professional wrestler, actor and former amateur wrestler currently signed to professional wrestling promotion WWE, where he was the on-screen general manager of the Raw brand and an occasional wrestler.

Olympic gold medalist in amateur wrestling, that should speak for itself.

Its True. Its DAMN True!

6 Mr. Perfect Mr. Perfect

All round greatest all time and so underrated

Mr. Perfect number 7, come on Curt henning lived up to his name, just watch any of his matches with Bret Hart or matches with Nick Bockwinkle, should be number 3 if not number 4 - germshep24

8 Daniel Bryan Daniel Bryan Bryan Lloyd Danielson is an American professional wrestler best known for his tenure in WWE under the ring name Daniel Bryan. He is the current WWE champion.

The greatest

Daniel Bryan is one of the wrestlers that hasn't really been able to show his skills: Ric Flair had Ricky Steamboat, Kurt Angle had Chris Beniot, Eddie Guerrero had Dean Malenko, Bret Hart had Shawn Michaels, but Bryan doesn't have anyone - germshep24

Daniel Bryan is a modern Chris Benoit. His technical ability has been around in WWE, ROH & even in Japan with NJPW and IWJP.

''Daniel Bryan is basically modern Chris Benoit.He is by far the best modern technical Wrestler in the business.''

9 Shawn Michaels Shawn Michaels Shawn Michaels was born on July 22, 1965 . He is an American professional wrestler. He is the first wrestler to win all the titles the WWE could have offered.

He should be further up. Right by Eddie. Above Jericho
