3 John Morrison John Morrison John Randall Hennigan is an American professional wrestler and actor, who is best known for his tenure with the WWE where he was better known by his ring names John Morrison and Johnny Nitro.

6 William Regal William Regal Darren Kenneth Matthews is an English professional wrestler, trainer, talent scout, author, and color commentator.

He is indeed the best I love his play and his way of interacting with his trainees on NXT. I have so much love for wwe lets get him to number #1 and yes William Regal is my sexy dream fantasy

He has an amazing body and probably an amazing personality as well.

I have watched William Regal fight almost every major name in international wrestling. In the WWE he never truly had a chance to shine but since he joined NXT he has had the chance to mould young talent

The best wredlt

7 Goldust Goldust Dustin Patrick Runnels is an American professional wrestler who is currently signed to All Elite Wrestling (AEW) under the ring name Dustin Rhodes. He previously wrestled for WWE under the ring name Goldust.

Best wrestler ever too bad he retired

Same situation as matt was in

9 Fandango Fandango Curtis Jonathan Hussey is an American professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Fandango.


10 Curt Hennig Curt Hennig

Very underrated. - RogerMcBaloney

Only inter continental champion

The Contenders

11 Lance Storm Lance Storm Lance Timothy Evers, known professionally by his ring name Lance Storm, is a Canadian professional wrestler.

All above Lance Storm have all had some moderate success within the WWE. I no Lance held the intercontinental and world tag team championships. But he was never seen as anything special. Regal was great but he got decent things like king of the ring. Chavo got ECW title. Kanes had a lot, Benjamin a solid mid carder. Even when I was a kid he stood out to me and I wasn’t exactly looking for great wrestling ability.

But as a wrestling stand point I would put him second to Regal out of this list.

12 Chavo Guerrero Chavo Guerrero Salvador "Chavo" Guerrero IV better known by ring names Chavo Guerrero and Chavo Guerrero Jr., is an American professional wrestler and actor.
13 Santino Marella Santino Marella Anthony Carelli better known by his ring name Santino Marella, is an Italian Canadian actor, retired professional wrestler and mixed martial artist.

Most underrated ever besides Ziggler

14 The Godfather
15 Owen Hart Owen Hart Owen James Hart was a Canadian-American professional and amateur wrestler who worked for several promotions including Stampede Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, and most notably, the World Wrestling Federation, where he wrestled under both his own name, and ring name more.

Not as much as his brother

16 Dolph Ziggler Dolph Ziggler Nicholas Theodore "Nick" Nemeth, best known by the ring name Dolph Ziggler, is an American professional wrestler, stand-up comedian, and actor.

Best ever!

He should not be underrated I mean especially now he's got a Scottish psychopath Drew McIntyre in his corner all the time so he shouldn't be on this list

49 Jim Duggan

They did not even give him a title in the WWF. They let him win the rumble and that was all. Also a short King of the Ring. The only promotion to ever give him a push was Mid-South Wrestling. He did end up getting a World Title in WCW, but besides that everybody forgets about the best brawler in history. HOOO!

50 Chris Jericho Chris Jericho Christopher Keith Irvine, better known by the ring name Chris Jericho, is a Canadian-American professional wrestler, musician, media personality, actor, author, and businessman, currently signed to WWE and NJPW.

Best in the world at what I do, first ever undisputed champion, 6 time world champion, 9 times intercontinental champion lost to fandango he is most under-rated superstar of all time and that is true
