Greatest Pro Wrestling Rivalries

The Top Ten
1 Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. Vince McMahon

This made the Attitude Era great.

Stunner to the boss

2 Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. The Rock Stone Cold Steve Austin vs. The Rock

The rock is a good actor... He's an actor, right? In Witch Mountain Race or something.

Just the best rivalry and the most entertaining.

If this wasn't number 1, then I don't know what is...

These two helped redefine pro wrestling into greatness again

3 Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart Shawn Michaels vs. Bret Hart

Bret vs Shawn. Who is really the best there is, the best there was and the best there ever will be? Bret says he is, while Triple H in 1997 and even today says it's Shawn, Even if a mini Bret Hart called Shawn John Michaels.
Its Joeysworld

A rivalry that led to the infamous "Montreal Screw Job". Former tag team wrestlers that had great chemistry with each other.

It was so real.!

4 Ric Flair vs. Ricky Steamboat

These two had some of the greatest technical matches ever. A rivalry that spanned the late 70's through the early 90's. They were so evenly matched.

5 Eric Bischoff vs. Vince McMahon
6 Edge and Christian vs. Hardy Boys and Dudley Boys
7 Andre the Giant vs. Hulk Hogan

A rivalry that lasted throughout the 80's. Hogan lost to Andre several times over the years but that changed with one big body slam at Wrestlemania 3.

He slammed him

8 The Undertaker vs. Edge
9 John Cena vs. Randy Orton

They both started in 2002, they both won secondary titles first, they both won world titles multiple times, both were controversially liked and both are future hall of famers

This has been a Rivalry for as long as they've been in the WWE and Before as well!

Longest running rivalry ever.

Two of the darkest forces in WWE and they're both good guys and they're both being cheered for

13 Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa Johnny Gargano vs. Tommaso Ciampa
14 Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega
15 Hulk Hogan vs. Randy Savage

They had a major rivalry in and out of the ring.

16 CM Punk vs. John Cena

The Dynamic of this rivalry is that Cena is the Superman of the WWE while CM Punk is Batman. Cena may have had more intense rivalries with Orton & Edge, but Punk has that conflicting personality to Cena that makes it feel more authentic. When Punk & Cena were both faces in 2011 it had a Hogan/Savage type of rivalry that was not seen too often. In 2012 when Punk feuded with Cena as Top Heel it developed into a Hogan/Piper rivalry. Maybe someday Punk & Cena can complete the trifecta with Cena being the Top Heel and Punk as the Top Face to make a Rock/Austin typeof rivalry.

Throughout the 'summer of punk' in 2011, I was more excited then I ever have since starting to watch wrestling in 2004. The matches were amazing, the matches were 5-star and it was a perfect blend of old school/new era. I cannot believe this isn't higher, as the complexity, longevity and awesomeness of this never-ending feud really brought a lot of people back to wrestling.

17 Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels Chris Jericho vs. Shawn Michaels
