Most Hardcore Pro Wrestlers of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Mankind / Foley / Cactus Jack

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 then 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

He took a pedigree on Thumbtacks...

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

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

Sabu enjoys pain

3 RVD

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!

4 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

5 Tommy Dreamer Thomas James "Tommy" Laughlin, best known by his ring name Tommy Dreamer, is an American professional wrestler, promoter, and actor currently signed to WWE.

This man like pain

6 Terry Funk Terrence "Terry" Funk is an American retired professional wrestler and actor. Funk is 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.

7 New Jack Jerome Young (January 3rd, 1963 - May 14th 2021) was an American semi-retired professional wrestler, better known by his stage name New Jack in ECW.

He used everything... including scissors!

He's all the way live! For real

New jack is number 1

8 Sandman

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

9 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.

Dark and demented

10 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.

The Contenders
11 Steve Blackman
12 Nick Mondo

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.

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.

13 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.
14 Nick Gage

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

15 Dean Ambrose Jonathan "Jon" Good is an American professional wrestler and actor, signed to All Elite Wrestling (AEW) under the ring name Jon Moxley. He also makes appearances for New Japan Pro-Wrestling, where he won the IWGP United States Championship. He previously worked for WWE under the ring name Dean Ambrose, ...read more.
16 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.

17 Drake Younger
18 Abdullah the Butcher
19 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.

20 Stone Cold 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.

25 Jimmy Havoc

How is he not here? This guy is insanely hardcore and he loves to use staples, paper-cuts, light tubes and... well, you name them all! He's now in AEW.
