Top 10 Best WCW Wrestlers

From 1988 to 2001, WCW was the stage where wrestling legends were made, epic rivalries were born, and some of the most memorable moments in professional wrestling took place.

WCW was a major player in the wrestling scene, renowned for its intense competition with WWE (then WWF) during the infamous "Monday Night Wars". Born out of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA), WCW quickly gained popularity with its unique blend of storylines, characters, and, of course, top-tier wrestling talent. From the iconic Starrcade events to the groundbreaking Cruiserweight division, WCW was a trailblazer in many ways.

Who can forget the dominant reign of the nWo, or the electrifying bouts of Sting, Goldberg, and Ric Flair? These were the athletes and entertainers who brought the heat to the WCW ring, captivating audiences worldwide with their charisma, athleticism, and sheer determination.

This list is a homage to those amazing athletes - the wrestlers who thrilled, shocked, and delighted us in equal measure. From technical wizards to charismatic showmen, from ruthless villains to beloved heroes, they represented the diverse and vibrant world of WCW.

So, who do you think are the best WCW wrestlers? Maybe you're a fan of Diamond Dallas Page's self-high-five or Booker T's scissor kick? Or perhaps you're a supporter of the high-flying Rey Mysterio or the unstoppable force that was Goldberg? It's time for you to step into the voting ring and decide who deserves the championship belt of 'Best WCW Wrestler'.
The Top Ten
1 Sting Steve Borden, better known by the ring name Sting, is an American retired professional wrestler, actor, author and former bodybuilder.

He was with World Championship Wrestling from the beginning to the end. Even to this day, he never gave in to WWE. He stuck with WCW until the very end.

Greatest wrestler of all time! Period! He was the biggest star of the '90s and the most popular wrestler, according to PWI.

Sting is undoubtedly the best WCW fighter of all time. His moves, like the Stinger Splash and Scorpion Deathlock, were iconic.

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

Goldberg is "the man." He's the best in the world, always giving 101%. It's hard to match Goldberg's level, and he's truly the greatest wrestler ever. AZed

He is the true alpha male in the ring, and his entrance song is one of the best.

Strength and in-ring ability, speed, and experience as a football player.

3 Ric Flair Richard Morgan "Ric" Fliehr, better known by his ring name Ric Flair, is a professional wrestling manager and American retired professional wrestler currently signed to the WWE under a legends appearance contract.

Flair carried the NWA for about seven years before it became WCW. Even after the change, he was one of the top 3 or 4 performers for another 7 or 8 years. Whenever WCW tried to sideline him, they always had to come back because he could generate excitement like only a few others could. I personally credit Flair with bridging the days of small armories to the big arenas we have today.

4 Diamond Dallas Page Dallas Page, better known by his ring name Diamond Dallas Page, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler, fitness instructor, motivational speaker and actor.

Bada boom, bada bing, bada bang! I'm not sure what that means, but Diamond Dallas Page is one of the greatest wrestlers in WCW history.

5 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.
6 Chris Benoit Christopher Michael Benoit was a Canadian professional wrestler. During his 22-year career, he worked for numerous promotions including the World Wrestling Federation/World Wrestling Entertainment (WWF/WWE), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), and New Japan Pro-Wrestling... read more

He's a strong man with muscles like Goldberg. He should be in the top 3.

7 Booker T Booker Huffman Jr., better known by his ring name Booker T, is an American professional wrestler, promoter, and color commentator who is currently signed with WWE as part of the pre-show team on Raw.

Booker T is very underrated. He is one of the most decorated WWE/WCW wrestlers ever. As a five-time WCW champion, he deserves more respect.

8 Scott Hall Scott Oliver Hall was an American professional wrestler. He is best known for his work with the World Wrestling Federation under the ring name Razor Ramon and with World Championship Wrestling under his real name.
9 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 AEW.
10 Kevin Nash Kevin Scott Nash is an American professional wrestler and actor, currently signed to WWE under their legends program. He is best known for his time with World Wrestling Federation under the ring name Diesel, and World Championship Wrestling under his real name.
The Contenders
11 Eddie Guerrero Eduardo Gory "Eddie" Guerrero Llanes, was a Mexican-American professional wrestler and a member of the Guerrero wrestling family.
12 Michael Schuler
13 Ricky Steamboat Richard Henry Blood Sr., better known by his ring name Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, is an American retired professional wrestler.
14 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.
15 Rey Mysterio Jr Óscar Gutiérrez, better known by the ring name Rey Mysterio, is a Mexican-American professional wrestler who currently works for WWE on the Smackdown brand.
16 Scott Steiner Scott Carl Rechsteiner is an American professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, Scott Steiner.

Best ever. An awesome wrestler and killer promo.

17 Randy Savage Randy Mario Poffo, better known by his ring name "Macho Man" Randy Savage, was an American professional wrestler and color commentator best known for his time in the World Wrestling Federation and later the World Championship Wrestling.

Randy Savage will always be my favorite wrestler. He wasn't at his peak in WCW, but he was still one of the most entertaining on the entire roster. His mic skills were among the best, his outfits were always eye-catching, and even in the ring, he was impressive until his knee injury late in the N.W.O./Wolfpac era. The diving double axe handle from the top of the cell at Halloween Havoc 1997 was wild! In my opinion, he deserves a better spot than 19.

18 Lex Luger Lawrence Wendell "Larry" Pfohl better known by his ring name, Lex Luger, is an American retired professional wrestler, television producer and football player currently working with WWE on their wellness policy.

He had the greatest physique in WCW and an awesome Torture Rack finisher. My favorite match of his was against Bret Hart for the title, which he won!

19 Vader
20 Vampiro
21 Dean Malenko
22 Lord Steven Regal
23 Steve Austin Steve Austin (born Steven James Anderson on December 18, 1964, later Steven James Williams), better known by his ring name "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, is an American actor, media personality, producer, and retired professional wrestler who is signed to a legends contract for WWE... read more
