He never guves up that's what I think and he always make the WWE funner I hope he win another WWE or world champion and beat CM Punk

John Cena is the best in the world. He is real champ

Cena. Really. Booker help him look good during the best of seven matches for the us title. He can barely moved. He needs a new finisher but I like his submission hold. Maybe he can be a good world champion as a heel

This Guy looks Good with all the titles and John cena looks reAl good with the Divas Championship - SmoothCriminal

He is good the best friend of the hbk, shawn is the best wrestler but hhh has won more heavyweight belts than shawn after all HE IS THE GAME Ha ha ha!

Edge is 11 times world heavy weight champion and hall of famer - subhashsahu

He is the greatest world heavy weight champion of all time. - subhashsahu

How did cena get on this list he only won it 2 times and he is considered the greatest while edge won it 7 times and is 2nd best this whole list makes no sense scratch that no list on this website makes because its based on people opinions with nothing to back it up. This list is basically who is favorite superstar not who dominated the WHC division

He is obviously the best in this case

5 Chris Benoit Chris Benoit Christopher Michael "Chris" Benoit was a Canadian professional wrestler. During his 22-year career, he worked for numerous promotions including the WWE, WCW and ECW. Benoit is often cited as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time.

Best wrestler EVER! Beat hbk AND H TWICE. He defended it against H numerous times and deserved a longer reign! Never Forget!

Should be number 1! He was the most underrated wrestler of all time and deserved the WWE title as well

One cannot simply forget such a legend like like he was. This guy was one of the greatest of all time! Even if WWE tries to bury him, it'll be IMPOSSIBLE!

He was one of the best when it came to skill.

6 Randy Orton 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.

It was tough choice between Orton and Batista. But I would choose Orton because " He was the past, he is the present and he is the future too". and YES I have to agree that He is the face of WWE. By the way john and daniel shouldn't be on the list. They have no such historic achievements compared to Orton, Batista or any others.

He became the champions of champions by defeating John Cena in TLC for world heavyweight and WWE championship - kormo

Because he is the viper, he beat the ugly beard at hell in a cell and became new wwe champ.

He is gonna beat bray at wrestlemania 33.he won the royal rumble 2 times.wwe championship 8 and heavyweigth championship 4 times and a future 13 time world champion.

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

The longest reign as wwe world heavy weight champion he won his first by beating the all time king of kings triple h he won it 4 times and is the man that is strong enough of the to rise to the top as a champion

I have no idea why john cena is even in this list! He's not a wrestler! He's an entertainer with 5 moves for kids! Batista is one of the greatest WHC! He is "the animal" and wont back down for anything! Too bad that he had to leave WWE! As he said "WWE is nothing without me"! Have to agree to that fact!

Without a doubt Batista will always be the best World heavyweight champion ever he's had 4 world heavyweight title reigns and has held the title longer than anyone in history 282 days, he won his first title reign at wrestlemania 21 defeating his mentor Triple H, his second reign was against Booker T, his third defeating both the great khali and Rey mysterio and his final reign after beating Chris Jericho... Not to mention he's a two time WWE champion, 3 time tag team champion, and a two time royal rumble winner..

Batista sould of had it more than cena

Randy savage would slap his silly smile from Atlantic to pacific.

20 Kane 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.

Kane is a coward. He is too scared to face Taker. He can't beat Taker unless someone help him. Kane won the three matches in 2010 only with the help of The Nexus and Paul Bearer.

That Tombstone Pile driver seems to finish about just anybody off.

the big red monster with the chokeslam

Hey,to the person who is saying Kane is a coward.First of all Kane is not a coward and second thing is that he is stronger than any wrestler in wwe history.Even Brock Lesnar himself said in an interview that in a backstage arm wrestling match he was able to beat everybody,even Big Show but,the one man who he was not able to beat was Kane.Lesnar said that beating Kane was like pulling a tree with one arm.Ok,I admit Taker has better moves like The last ride,Hell's gate,Old School and not to forget about Chokeslam and Tombstone but Kane has better in-ring abilities and is more powerful than Taker.And some WWE Wrestlers even complain about Taker for not putting younger talents over and then Kane is just the opposite,he puts younger talents and over.And now I am going to tell you some more records of The Big Red Monster:-
1]Most Total WWE Matches-(1600)!
2]Most Royal Rumble Matches and Match Time-(19 Royal Rumble Match Appearances,Kane's Total Royal Rumble Match Time is ...more

28 King Booker

Booker is the best because he was given a gimmick change to run with and he made it impressive. He is still great in the ring and is better than some stars in the past as well as those now. A soon as he got to WWE he was really able to entertain and showed what he was truly about. He and Benoit had great matches in wcw and WWE. He made guys such as hunter look great in the ring for wrestlemania. He should have been giving another word title run. His reign helped push the prestige of the title even though he wasn't handed an 11 time title run. WWE tried to keep him mid card for so long that when batista go injured they didn't have a chose but to let booker show true talent
