Top 10 Most Hardcore Pro Wrestlers of All Time

Professional wrestling has always been a spectacle of physical prowess and drama, where wrestlers put their bodies on the line to entertain the crowds. However, some wrestlers take it to another level, pushing their limits and embracing the extreme to leave a lasting impression on their audience. These hardcore wrestlers are known for their fearless attitude, high tolerance for pain, and willingness to engage in the most brutal and dangerous matches.

Over the years, the wrestling industry has seen its fair share of hardcore wrestlers who have left a mark on the sport. From death-defying stunts to bloody brawls, these wrestlers have taken the concept of "no holds barred" to the extreme.
The Top Ten
1 Mick Foley Michael Francis Foley (born June 7, 1965) is an American actor, author, color commentator, and retired professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, under the company's "Legends" program, acting as a company ambassador. Foley has wrestled under his real name and various personas, including Mankind, Cactus Jack, and Dude Love.

To survive a 30-foot fall from the top of a cell, climb back up, and get choke-slammed into the cell itself, then get choke-slammed on sharp needles, and get back up... Well, that's extraordinary!

Of course foley is the top 1 hardcore competitor wrestling has ever seen. He is sadistic, shyco, crazy, he risks his own self than anyone else and no one is giving his opponent the pain and blood as foley does!

I really like him, he the best wrestler of all time, did you remember in the year 2000 when Triple H threw him through the cell and through the ring! That was amazing

2 Terry Funk Terrence "Terry" Funk was an American professional wrestler and actor. Funk was known for the longevity of his career - which spanned 50 years and included multiple short-lived retirements - and the influential hardcore wrestling style he pioneered in the latter part of his career.

No. 7 for the guy that innovated hardcore and bleed all over this planet? Terry is almost 70 and is still in barb wire matches. I don't mind Sabu or even Cactus over the Funker but no one else.

3 Jeff Hardy Jeffrey Nero "Jeff" Hardy is an American professional wrestler, singer-songwriter, painter and musician.

Jeff Hardy is one of the craziest wrestlers to ever step in a ring

4 Sabu Terry Michael Brunk is an American professional wrestler, known by his ring name Sabu, who portrays an Arab American in the ring.

Come on guys! Sabu had got to be at no.1

He has to be the most hardcore man that points his finger to the sky

Sabu enjoys pain

5 Raven Scott Levy is an American professional wrestler, podcaster, and actor. He is better known by his ring name, Raven. He has appeared in ECW, WCW, WWF/E, and TNA.

This man like pain

7 Sandman Sandman, whose real name is James Fullington, is an American retired professional wrestler. He is best known for his time in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), where he became a five-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion. Sandman was infamous for his hardcore wrestling style, often involving weapons and extreme stunts. He became an iconic figure in the 1990s wrestling scene, and his entrance to the ring while drinking beer and wielding a kendo stick is legendary.

Sandman should be in the top 2... He swung the Singapore Cane better than anybody else in the business.

This man can take shots

One of the best

The Contenders

The whole fkn show should be on top... His high flyin moves such as the van damminator, five star frog splash and the rolling thunder gives me goosebumps... RVD! RVD! RVd!

12 Shane McMahon Shane Brandon McMahon, is an American businessman who is a minority owner of WWE and the vice-chairman of YOU On Demand.

Very handsome and sexy man with amazing talent. Love his smile and his eyes. And the way he jumps off tall things is so awesome... Go SHANE!

The man is literally obsessed with jumping off of tall things.

13 Necro Butcher

Necro Butcher is the craziest guy out there. When it comes to hardcore, he really puts it all out there. Some say he is a wanna-be Mankind, but I don't think that is true. I think he is a wanna-be Necro Butcher. He's the kind of wrestler who you can tell is always trying to top himself.

14 Nick Mondo

The guy took a weed whacker to the stomach, got thrown off a renters truck, and got slammed off a 2 story building on to concrete... Pretty hardcore.

This guy was hardcore since age 16. Fighting with hardcore stuff in his backyard with friends. Then goes onto professional. CZW. Weed wackers. Getting thrown off roofs onto tables. This guy has probably been through it all.

15 Abdullah the Butcher

Abdullah is downright crazy.

16 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.
17 Abyss

Been in quite a few dangerous matches and with janice at his side he is quite formidable. Being a triple crown winner already he still has quite a way to go.

18 Drake Younger
19 Nick Gage

Nick Gage is definitely one of the most extreme of all time.
