Top Ten Most Popular Pro Wrestlers

The Top Ten
1 The Undertaker Mark William Calaway (born March 24, 1965), better known by his ring name The Undertaker, is an American semi-retired professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where he has worked since 1990, making him the company's longest tenured in-ring performer . Calaway began his wrestling career with World ...read more.

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.

This isn't the most popular WWE wrestlers, this is the best of the popular characters, and if there is anybody who deserves to be at the top, it is The Undertaker, why is he so great? He has been in the business longer than anybody else and still wrestles, Hulk Hogan is in the business but doesn't wrestle, The Undertaker has been everybody's favorite and that's because he is genuine to us, he has only been in the WWE

The Undertaker is indeed the most popular and greatest wrestler of all time. His legendary 20 plus career that he has behind him, his undefeated streak at Mania, and all his title runs are just the start of his legacy. Nobody plays their character and gimmick as well as he does. He has earned respect, which makes him the most respected wrestler, and the leader backstage.

I voted for Taker because, he is been there long enough as the top card guy and he jobbed when necessary unlike Austin or Bret or Hogan who refused to job to younger talent.

Besides he is the best all rounder performer in the ring and he pulled off the same gimmick for so long without becoming stale. He evolved the character.

Taker all the way!

2 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

He is the BEST period... "SMACKDOWN" is literally named because of him... He is the best wrestling entertainer ever... Maybe 2nd to hogan (1st)...

3 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. ...read more.

How is he not top two at least? He is the face of the WWE, and while big fans of the WWE will prefer others, non-WWE fans still know his name

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.

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. ...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.

Most popular of all time! Stone Cold made the " biggest impact " in wrestling culture in such a short amount of time and truly revolutionized the Attitude era. He was the one wrestler who kept television ratings through the ROOF! One of the greatest in- ring talkers, as well as performers. When you hear the glass...well, you know the rest. The GOAT hands down!

"What? " 4th position. Seriously! If its famous - it has to be Austin at no. 1

Highest figures in merchandising - What and 3:16 t-shirts
Maximum chanting - What
Maximum posters - 3:16

More than that if there is one person beside Vince who can say to have made WWE a success - Austin.

"that's the bottomline because Stonecold said so"

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.

What you gonna do brother when me and my 24 inch pythons run wild on you!

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

He been wrestling for 20 years now he defeated Undertaker, John Cena, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and Stone Cold he beated almost every top dog Past and Present

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.

"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.

Shawn should have been number 1! He's the magnet when it comes to getting attention from the people! He's one of the best wrestlers out there and he holds some of the best matches of all times. Come on! Who can ever forget the Iron Man Match in Wrestlemania 12?!

2 time royal rumble winner.
1st ever elimination chamber match winner.
Competed in the 1st ever ladder match and hell in a cell match...He is the best competitor in the pro wrestling business. The best wrestler to compete in the WWF and WWE ring. The greatest in-ring performer of all time. He deserves the 1st place...and if your not down with that, I got 2 words for ya...

He is just the main event you have to just watch when ever he plays. He was the guy to watch every time he wrestled. He would bring new things to the wring he was just great.

8 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

He is super dude. He deserves to be in the top 10 and who the hell is The cuban "ass"asin

9 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.

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

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.

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

All the kids in school have this guy as favorite.

HE will kill a person if he has to!

The Contenders
11 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 dirtiest player in the game, the single best wrestler in history

12 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.

I think he is the best

13 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.

Bret hart is my favourite wrestler I love bret hart..

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

1.Sting
2.John Cena
3.Steve Austin
4.The Rock
5.Hulk Hogan

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.

Charismatic, entertaining and arguably the epitome of WCW when it was at its peak.

15 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.

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

Q) Who is The Kane?
A) The one who is 7ft height
The one who makes everyone feel afraid even with or without mask.

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

19 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.

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

Jeff should at least be number eleven because of his jumps.

Okay he deserves more than 0.9

21 Christian

He is great at what he dose but deserve a story line like edge got

22 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.

23 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.

He should be there in top 5; just because he is the best in the world from past 25 years; and nobody ever has dropped pipebombs like this super has done..

The longest reigning WWE Champion of the modern era. Enough said.

24 Edge Adam Joseph Copeland is a Canadian actor and retired professional wrestler. He is best known for his time with the American professional wrestling promotion WWE, where he performed 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!

Who can forget one of the greatest matches evernwith mick foley when edge was slammed on thumb tacks...

29-time CHAMP is totally awesome. The Rated ARE Superstar was the first Mr. Money In The Bank, has a streak at Wrestlemania of 5-0 and is stronger, faster, smarter, quicker, awesomer and more agile than anybody in the WWE

25 The Great Khali Dalip Singh Rana, better known by his ring name The Great Khali, is an Indian promoter, actor, powerlifter and professional wrestler best known for his time with WWE.
