The Top Ten

1 The Undertaker The Undertaker Mark William Calaway (born March 24, 1965), better known by his ring name The Undertaker, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where he has worked since 1990, making him the company's longest tenured in-ring performer . Calaway began his wrestling career with World ...read more.

Hands down the most popular because nobody really ever thought he would wrestle for over 20 years, the best gimmicks, the only wrestlers that come close is John Cena, The Rock, Stone Cold, HBK and I'll throw in one more and he's the ICON Sting. I don't like Hogan because he is a straight up sell out. He can be a heel and people still will cheer for him. The only way you can prove it is to put Undertaker, John Cena and Sting in one ring together, because to me #1 Undertaker #2 John Cena #3 Sting #4 Austin #5 The Rock #8 HBK.

Even as a heel, everyone will still love him. One of very few, only few wrestlers can play heel and be popular: Undertaker, Randy Orton, Edge, Stone Cold, The Rock, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, CM Punk. Not including Cena because he's really never a heel.

The Undertaker is indeed the most popular and greatest wrestler of all time. His legendary 20 plus career that he has behind him, his undefeated streak at Mania, and all his title runs are just the start of his legacy. Nobody plays their character and gimmick as well as he does. He has earned respect, which makes him the most respected wrestler, and the leader backstage. - Undertaker15-0

He's #1. Nothing else needs to be said.

John Cena got his record breaking 10 time WWE championship this year and that's why I am voting for John Cena

3 The Rock The Rock Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

Not the best but definitively the most popular Wrestler ever. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has made his imprint on popular culture through his wrestling accolades, movies, and the entertaining industry. The most entertaining person to watch. As far as wrestling is concerned he is definitely in the top 5.

Well I have listened many to say The Rock is famous for his best mic skill but I watched his almost all wrestling & noticed he was not only best at mic but his wrestling skills really impressive. The Rock is not only best at mic, accept it Jabronies The Rock is also best into the ring & of course The Rock has the guts, ability to take any challenge to single & many together & defeat them anytime. THE ROCK is the GREATEST wrestler of all time.

every single time he gets in that ring and on the mic the whole atmosphere just rises, and he makes hairs stand up on the back of your neck! amazing character

Hello! He is THE ROCK

I don't know Why people gonna refuse a person who got the persona to take a company like WWE which ranked 17 at his time and single handedly he take the company to the first position who made rock a real super star... He is the only super star in the history of WWE who had won only 6 times for WWE championship. But still popular than both hogan... Rock... Hitman... Ric flair... Undertaker and even his time 1996 -2001 he made every super star to work hard to compete him. He is the creator of Rock & WWE without him... I think no body can give that 100% thing to this game.

The guy was so popular he got millions of people to buy a shirt that only had the word "what?" on it.

yeah should be number one he was big for ratings one night monday night raw scored a 9.2 in the ratings I think the most ever. Now it only gets about a low 3's or higher 3. all because of the pg ratings and the stupid celebrity guest host looses a true wrestling fans. I sure do miss the attitude era - sUx2Bu

Why he is in 4th rank

5 Hulk Hogan Hulk Hogan Terry Gene Bollea, better known by his ring name Hulk Hogan, is an American professional wrestler, actor, television personality, entrepreneur and rock bassist.

When wrestling was at its pinnacle, there was NO ONE as popular as Hulk Hogan. Could he wrestle? No. Could he play the part? Absolutely. Put any ten wrestlers in a line-up, world wide, and more people would know who Hogan is than anyone else in the history of the sport... With the simgle possible exception of Andre the Giant.

Not the greatest but easily the most popular wrestler ever, - apachereporter

What you gonna do brother when me and my 24 inch pythons run wild on you!

He had the act, the look, the voice, the body, the ego, so popular

Shawn is better than all these wrestlers he should be number 1

Shawn should have been number 1! He's the magnet when it comes to getting attention from the people! He's one of the best wrestlers out there and he holds some of the best matches of all times. Come on! Who can ever forget the Iron Man Match in Wrestlemania 12?!

Shawn Michaels is the show stopper, Mr. Wrestlemania, He deserves to be at least above Non Wrestlers like John Cena. Did we forget who he is?

At least he's one half of D GENERATION X.

Shawn Michaels Is the best there was best there is and the best there ever will be and no I did not mistake for bret Hart

10 Goldberg Goldberg William Scott "Bill" Goldberg is an American actor, former professional football player, and semi-retired professional wrestler.

One of the if not strongest characters ever, literally picked everyone up and in less than a year and a half since his debut in wcw has captured a following like no other, listed win streak of 174. Great entrance theme, great in ring ability, great finisher. No one else comes close. "Who's next? "

He beat undertaker brock lesner big show batista John Cena randy orton. He's the best wrestler, he can beat HBK H. But now he's not in wrestling. I miss him very much. I think one day he will come and beat everybody in WWE

He is real giant in WWE. No one can beat him in right way to the ring. His power can unstoppable one in the ring. He is best in WWE.

He should be number 1 no other word's

The Contenders

11 Big Show Big Show Paul Randall Wight, Jr. is an American professional wrestler and actor, better known by his ring name Big Show.

BIG SHOW is one of the greatest wrestler of all time.

Guys like this man and Kane are still very talented but over the past few years they've been wasted because they've never been given title shots instead there kept in Triple h pockets all the time

The best wrestler and showman and the worst booked though.

13 Sting

The Icon. He and The Undertaker are the two best things that happened to the wrestling business.

People would tune in to WCW just to see what Sting would do, and his feud with nWo changed wrestling for ever.

Charismatic, entertaining and arguably the epitome of WCW when it was at its peak.

14 Kane Kane Glenn Thomas Jacobs is an American professional wrestler, insurer, and actor. He works for WWE, and is best known by his ring name Kane.

Great wrestler. He is the king of all masked fighters and when he unmasked it was a shock to people. But he got a lot of attention

Kane is known for his destructive nature, whenever Kane comes out every one is scared and other wrestlers don't wanna mess with him - roblist

Kane is strongest, toughest, scariest monster to step in the ring with his terrifying mask and his red and black suit Kane can destroy anyone who dares to step in the ring

Don't mess with The Big Red Machine or he will Chokeslam you to Hell,That's why Kane is the greatest wrestler ever to step in the ring...So Fear The Big Red Machine!

15 The Ultimate Warrior The Ultimate Warrior Warrior was an American professional wrestler, who wrestled, among the others, under the ring name The Ultimate Warrior for the World Wrestling Federation from 1987 to 1991 and again in 1992 and 1996. During his 1998 stint in World Championship Wrestling, he was known as The Warrior.

The benchmark is beating the hulkster in terms of popularity and hogan was really the man.. It was only UW eclipsed him.. He should be #1. His memory will stay forever even if he only wrestled in a short period of time unlike the guys above

By far the most electrifying wrestler of all time! This guy was nuts with unequaled to energy as he would fly through the entrance running all over the place igniting the whole crowed and with the perfect entrance themed music!

Best entertainer, his popularity in the late 80's was incredible

16 Edge Edge Adam Joseph Copeland is a Canadian actor and retired professional wrestler. He is best known for his time with the American professional wrestling promotion WWE, where he performed under the ring name Edge.

If you're talking WWE you're talking about Edge. The guy was super passionate about wrestling; it's sad that he had to retire. His performances were so engaging that I had goosebumps whenever I watched. I will never forget the classic "SPEAR. "

29-time CHAMP is totally awesome. The Rated ARE Superstar was the first Mr. Money In The Bank, has a streak at Wrestlemania of 5-0 and is stronger, faster, smarter, quicker, awesomer and more agile than anybody in the WWE - AbdullahSaeedKhan

Edge put his heart and and soul into wrestling he was the ultinate bad guy then he could be the ultimate face he did everything for the fans and the only way he can't now is because of his injury other wise he would be wrestling right now

Who can forget one of the greatest matches evernwith mick foley when edge was slammed on thumb tacks...
