Most Technical Pro Wrestlers

The Top Ten
1 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

Chris Benoit could carry other wrestlers with such skill, and he had your attention at every moment. He was truly the best technical wrestler in history.

The best technical wrestler in the world.

Despite what he did outside the ring, he is the greatest technical wrestler ever.

2 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.

Bret Hart is one of the best wrestlers that utilizes submissions well. Nobody can do the sharpshooter like him, not The Rock, not Sting, and not anyone else in my opinion.

The best there is. The best there was, and the best there ever will be. Not just a tagline but the honest truth.

The best... Period! No one was better in the ring!

3 Kurt Angle Kurt Steven Angle is an American professional wrestler, actor and former amateur wrestler currently signed to professional wrestling promotion WWE, where he was the on-screen general manager of the Raw brand and an occasional wrestler.

Olympic gold medalist in amateur wrestling, that should speak for itself.

Kurt Angle is legendary at this point.

4 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.
5 Eddie Guerrero Eduardo Gory "Eddie" Guerrero Llanes, was a Mexican-American professional wrestler and a member of the Guerrero wrestling family.
6 Curt Hennig Curtis Michael Hennig (March 28, 1958 – February 10, 2003) was an American professional wrestler. He performed under his real name for promotions including the American Wrestling Association (AWA), the World Wrestling Federation (WWF; now WWE), World Championship Wrestling (WCW), and NWA Total Nonstop... read more

Mr. Perfect number 7, come on. Curt Hennig lived up to his name. Just watch any of his matches with Bret Hart or matches with Nick Bockwinkel. He should be number 3, if not number 4.

7 Shawn Michaels Shawn Michaels was born on July 22, 1965 . He is an American professional wrestler. He is the first wrestler to win all the titles the WWE could have offered. He is known for his moves and looks. His nickname provided by WWE is HBK (Heart Break Kid). He was in DX (Degeneration X) a tag team with Triple... read more
8 Daniel Bryan Bryan Lloyd Danielson is an American professional wrestler best known for his tenure in WWE under the ring name Daniel Bryan. He is a five time WWE world champion.

One of the most gifted technical wrestlers today! So popular with the crowds! The LeBelle Lock is truly a worthy finisher for Daniel Bryan. Some of his greatest matches feel like a human chess match. He has got passion and grit that few others possess!

Daniel Bryan is one of the wrestlers who hasn't really been able to show his skills. Ric Flair had Ricky Steamboat, Kurt Angle had Chris Benoit, Eddie Guerrero had Dean Malenko, and Bret Hart had Shawn Michaels, but Bryan doesn't have anyone.

9 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.
10 Dean Malenko
The Contenders
11 Owen Hart Owen James Hart was a Canadian-American professional and amateur wrestler who worked for several promotions including Stampede Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling, and most notably, the World Wrestling Federation, where he wrestled under both his own name, and ring name... read more
12 Ricky Steamboat Richard Henry Blood Sr., better known by his ring name Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, is an American retired professional wrestler.

There is no reason that Ricky Steamboat shouldn't be in the top 10. This is the guy that brought out the best from Ric Flair. The guy is a wrestling machine.

13 AJ Styles Allen Neal Jones, better known by the ring name AJ Styles, is an American professional wrestler currently signed to WWE.

Best champion ever. He fights in the true sense, unlike the cowardly Lesnar.

14 Nick Bockwinkel
15 Jack Brisco
16 CM Punk Phillip Jack "Phil" Brooks, also known by the ring name CM Punk, is an American comic book writer, actor, upcoming mixed martial artist and retired professional wrestler who is signed with the Ultimate Fighting Championship... read more
17 Zack Sabre Jr.
18 William Regal Darren Kenneth Matthews is an English professional wrestler, trainer, talent scout, author, and color commentator.
19 British Bulldog

He had an awesome technical match with Bret Hart at WrestleMania, even though Bret did more of the work.

20 Triple H Paul Michael Levesque, better known by his ring name Triple H, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler, corporate executive, and actor.
21 Antonio Cesaro Claudio Castagnoli is a Swiss professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Cesaro. He was previously known for his work in Ring of Honor (ROH) and various independent promotions including Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), and Pro Wrestling... read more

Everybody in the WWE locker rooms respects his in-ring ability, and he is deserving of the top 5!

He had it all, from strategy and speed to strength and submissions.

22 Dynamite Kid Thomas "Tom" Billington, best known by the ring name Dynamite Kid, (December 5, 1958 - December 5, 2018) was a retired English professional wrestler.

He is the best technical wrestler. Chris Benoit copied his style, but Dynamite was more vicious with it. Check out his matches with Tiger Mask, especially between 1982-86. He was at least ahead of Bret Hart in terms of technical ability, but the Hitman was much safer with opponents. This guy should be ranked at least in the top 4 best technical wrestlers of all time and also in the top 15 best high flyers of all time.

See the YouTube interview where Bret Hart acknowledges Dynamite Kid as the best ever.

23 Kelly Kelly Barbara Jean "Barbie" Souray is an American model, former professional wrestler and professional wrestling valet, better known by her ring name Kelly Kelly.
24 Alberto Del Rio José Alberto Rodríguez best known as Alberto Del Rio is a Mexican professional wrestler and former mixed martial artist.  
25 Verne Gagne Laverne Clarence "Verne" Gagne was an American professional wrestler, football player, wrestling trainer, and wrestling promoter.
