Who knew mean mark callous from wcw would be on all #1 top list. wcw had stunning steve austin. If they kept these guys maybe wcw would still be in business. The Undertaker's debut 1990 survivior series. You knew he was going to be a star. He kept doing it for years until he retired. The Undertaker is in my favorite match of all time King Of The Ring 1998 vs Mankind You were thinking this match can't be beat. wrestlemania is not fun to watch anymore. He lost some wrestlemania matches and retired wrestlemania won't be the same without the undertaker the same with wrestling.

Hands down the most popular because nobody really ever thought he would wrestle for over 20 years, the best gimmicks, the only wrestlers that come close is John Cena, The Rock, Stone Cold, HBK and I'll throw in one more and he's the ICON Sting. I don't like Hogan because he is a straight up sell out. He can be a heel and people still will cheer for him. The only way you can prove it is to put Undertaker, John Cena and Sting in one ring together, because to me #1 Undertaker #2 John Cena #3 Sting #4 Austin #5 The Rock #8 HBK.

2 John Cena John Felix Anthony Cena Jr. (/ˈsiːnə/; born April 23, 1977) is an American professional wrestler, rapper, actor, and reality television show host signed to WWE, where he is assigned to the SmackDown brand.

Cena started his professional wrestling career in 1999 with Ultimate Pro Wrestling (UPW), and won the UPW Heavyweight Championship the following year. Cena signed a developmental contract... read more

John cena is simply awesome! He never ever gives up no matter how tough the competition! He is a great inspiration, moreover he teaches children to rise above all the people who hate u! Johncena is the best and always will be #1 in my book!

I remember watching wrestling all the way back to the early eighties. I've seen a lot, and I love what John Cena has brought to wrestling. He is talented, and deserves his props.

This wrestler is one I here about a lot they say John Cena this is why he is the most popular wrestler and his name is John Cena doodooododooodooo.

3 The Rock Dwayne Douglas Johnson, also known by his ring name The Rock, is an American and Canadian actor, producer and semi-retired professional wrestler, signed with WWE.

Well I have listened many to say The Rock is famous for his best mic skill but I watched his almost all wrestling & noticed he was not only best at mic but his wrestling skills really impressive. The Rock is not only best at mic, accept it Jabronies The Rock is also best into the ring & of course The Rock has the guts, ability to take any challenge to single & many together & defeat them anytime. THE ROCK is the GREATEST wrestler of all time.

Not the best but definitively the most popular Wrestler ever. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has made his imprint on popular culture through his wrestling accolades, movies, and the entertaining industry. The most entertaining person to watch. As far as wrestling is concerned he is definitely in the top 5.

He wasn't the best wrestler, but the best talker of all time. Rock knew how to give a good promo, get heel heat, and just talk. Promos now are not as good as The Rock's legendary promos

4 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.

He gained significant mainstream popularity in the WWE (then known as the World Wrestling Federation) in the late... read more

I don't know Why people gonna refuse a person who got the persona to take a company like WWE which ranked 17 at his time and single handedly he take the company to the first position who made rock a real super star... He is the only super star in the history of WWE who had won only 6 times for WWE championship. But still popular than both hogan... Rock... Hitman... Ric flair... Undertaker and even his time 1996 -2001 he made every super star to work hard to compete him. He is the creator of Rock & WWE without him... I think no body can give that 100% thing to this game.

Brought WWE from the brink of defeat at the hands of WCW. While the WCW vs NWO storyline was kicking the crap out of WWE it seemed if Vince's company was destined for financial collapse. Then because of the Montreal Screwjob Vince stepped up to be the antagonist against Stone Cold. Their feud reinvigorated WWE and brought them back from the brink. Soon they overtook the ratings of WCW and eventually bought them out. I believe that this alone makes him number one.

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.

When wrestling was at its pinnacle, there was NO ONE as popular as Hulk Hogan. Could he wrestle? No. Could he play the part? Absolutely. Put any ten wrestlers in a line-up, world wide, and more people would know who Hogan is than anyone else in the history of the sport... With the simgle possible exception of Andre the Giant.

I honestly found this guy a little annoying, but he definitely was extremely famous.

He made the sport big, and was an icon, when the world needed it and gave a damn.

6 Triple H Paul Michael Levesque, better known by his ring name Triple H, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler, corporate executive, and actor.

He's won basically every title! Beaten basically every opponent! Legends like The rock and Undertaker have fallen at his feet! He has got Charisma, strength and the perfect look for a WWE superstar!

He may not be the best wrestler... but he SURELY is better than John Cena.

Better then John Cena! More titles and wwe has hyped his return in money in the bank

7 Batista David Michael "Dave" Bautista Jr. is an American actor and former professional mixed martial artist and professional wrestler.

Batista is the best wrestler that ever walked inside a WWE ring. Batista he earned his titles unlike Cena whos given his titles and never stops running his big mouth his worst then the miz in my opinion. Batista was the modern golberg and lesner in my opinion they should also be included in this list too.

Batista is the strongest because he great khali's home turf :the Punjabi match. Batista 's definitely #1! Because he said khali " You don't know what it's like to be in a cage with "the animal".

The best there is the best there will The Animal is a one of the fierce wrestler in WWE and he still looks young and he is also a part of Avengers Infinity war he is the destroyer.The is no end for Dave Bautista

8 Rey Mysterio 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.

He is amazing to watch and he has always been my favourite wrestler and always will be the high flying energetic guy that makes people love the wwe.

Rey Mysterio is so famous because of his trademark moves, determination, and little size. Plus the mask adds to his awesome name

The king of 619, high flyer, beat a wrestler AKA JBL he sucks but Rey Mysterio is the bomb!

9 Andre The Giant Roussimouf André René Roussimoff, known as André the Giant, was a French professional wrestler and actor. André He most famously feuded with Hulk Hogan, culminating at WrestleMania III, and his best-remembered film role was that of Fezzik, the giant in The Princess Bride. His size was a result of gigantism caused by excess growth hormone, which later resulted in acromegaly. It also led to him being called "The Eighth Wonder of the World". In 2014, he was named the ninth tallest professional wrestler in history. more.

The original super heavyweight, may his soul rest in peace.

It's sad what happened to this awesome guy. Very beloved for his enormous size

HE will kill a person if he has to!

10 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.

Without Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan in the 80's there is no wrestling now.

His retired now so you should be voting for him as a tribute.

The greatest wrestler in this world ever!

The Contenders

"Approaching to the ring, From San Antonio, Texas, HE IS THE HEART BRREAK KID, SHAWN... MichaelS! " God I will never ever forget that part of his Hall of Fame Tribute. This guy had a great sense of humor in and out of the ring, unlike other wrestlers. There will never be a man like HBK, EVER! Especially as a wrestler. The Showstopper, Mr. Wrestlemania, the legendary Heart Break Kid Shawn Michaels will never be forgotten. Not even in a trillions of trillions of trillions years in the WWE World Wrestling Enterainment.

Cream will rise to the top!

At a time when nearly no one went on top of the ropes he made spectacular moves from the ropes

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

One of the if not strongest characters ever, literally picked everyone up and in less than a year and a half since his debut in wcw has captured a following like no other, listed win streak of 174. Great entrance theme, great in ring ability, great finisher. No one else comes close. "Who's next? "

He beat undertaker brock lesner big show batista John Cena randy orton. He's the best wrestler, he can beat HBK H. But now he's not in wrestling. I miss him very much. I think one day he will come and beat everybody in WWE

He is real giant in WWE. No one can beat him in right way to the ring. His power can unstoppable one in the ring. He is best in WWE.

14 Randy Orton Randal Keith "Randy" Orton is an American professional wrestler and actor who is signed with WWE, where he is a member of the SmackDown brand. He is a 12-time world champion, having held the WWE World Championship eight times and the World Heavyweight Championship four times.

Randy orton is the best wrestle after John Cena and the rock.

15 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.

Don't mess with The Big Red Machine or he will Chokeslam you to Hell,That's why Kane is the greatest wrestler ever to step in the ring...So Fear The Big Red Machine!

Great wrestler. He is the king of all masked fighters and when he unmasked it was a shock to people. But he got a lot of attention

Kane is strongest, toughest, scariest monster to step in the ring with his terrifying mask and his red and black suit Kane can destroy anyone who dares to step in the ring

BIG SHOW is one of the greatest wrestler of all time.

17 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.

18 Sting Steve Borden, better known by the ring name Sting, is an American retired professional wrestler, actor, author and former bodybuilder.

What? no. 13? How can the most popular wrestler of all time deserves this ranking...

2.John Cena
3.Steve Austin

People would tune in to WCW just to see what Sting would do, and his feud with nWo changed wrestling for ever.

The Icon. He and The Undertaker are the two best things that happened to the wrestling business.

19 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.

Greatest character of most people not only wrestlers I've seen and also had great spirit after owen died he isn't my favorite but is one of them.

20 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.

Wow what an athlete. I admit his gimmick is terrible now, but in my opinion he still can deliver the best matches among any active WWE wrestler (not including injured wrestlers). Booker T, we miss the old gangsta Booker.

21 Christian

He used to be my favourite before John Cena came in.

Captian Charisma - It sad that the WWE try to hold down his popularity!

This guy deserve more than what he gets.. he's one of the best around

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

Not only has Jeff won 24 titles in his time as a pro wrestler not just as a singles competitor but in a tag team with his brother Matt hardy but also in a range of different companies, from tna to wwe to roh jeff has exceeded the odds and will do anything to ensure the fans have a great time and remeber the match

Okay he deserves more than 0.9

23 Edge Adam Joseph Copeland is a Canadian actor and professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Smackdown brand under the ring name Edge.

If you're talking WWE you're talking about Edge. The guy was super passionate about wrestling; it's sad that he had to retire. His performances were so engaging that I had goosebumps whenever I watched. I will never forget the classic "SPEAR. "

Edge hands down is my favorite because he's so good in the ring. His spear is the best!
