Greatest WWE Wrestlers of All Time

The Top Ten

Calaway began his wrestling career with World more.

He is legend of WWE

He is undefeated man at Wrestlemania
He almost beat every superstar in WWE
He can beat every one
He is the man who never die
UnderTaker is the best wrestler forever
With out undertaker, no WWE!
BECAUSE with out legend no one want/like to watch WWE

And, his return at Raw 21 Feb 2011 make WWE again best show in all over world

And triple h is also good wrestler but, he can't beat undertaker at wrestlemania

But if he want to try it so OK
BECAUSE he was try at wrestlemania, nut he can't

So one more chance he has to prove his ability
But I know, you know, and all people in world know he can't beat him.
No only he, no one can beat UnderTaker


Who cares if he lost to brock lesnar at WrestleMania xxx, he is still the greatest of all time

Simply the best of all time, this guys is a true complete package, he can wrestle and give great matches with whoever he face, big guys, small guys, high flyers, grapples, hardcore wrestlers, bret harts, HBKs, kurt angles, batistas, yokozans, hbk, mick foley, rock, Austen, jbl, sid, hogan warrior, bid daddy v, big show, lesner, H, henry, batista, kamala, rey etc..., he is the master of hell in a cell, he competed in 11 hell in a cell matches, he had plenty hardcore match classics, with mankind at hell in cell, boiler room, with Brock Lesner at hell in a cell etc..., he can give great tlc matches (with edge), he is the innovator of buried alive matches and casket matches, he is the owner of wrestlemania and with 19-0 including some of the greatest matches of all time, this guy can do things that other men cannot do, very agile, very deadly, the pace of The Undertaker matches are BRUTAL, he destroy you bit by bit, his hells gate submission is brutal, his chokeslam is legendary, his last ...more

UNDERTAKER is the best no one can reach at his position or get close to him he is greatest legend of WWE of all time without him WWE couldn't have gotten that position...

Sorry I love Undertaker but he doesn't deserve to be number one the only thing that Undertaker gave us that was impactful was new types of matches: hell in a cell, the Coffin match, and buried alive match, but honestly the things that made undertaker memorable were the Superstars battling him: his must memorable matches wasn't because of Undertaker but the other wrestler in the ring with him. If you don't think so just watch his matches with non Superstars I guarantee beyond the intro it was a boring match.

His iconic Hell in a Cell match with Mankind only great because Mankind is a crazy mofo that didn't mind be choked slammed through the cage. his memorable streak matches are the ones because of the story with the Superstars: i.e. the Shawn Michaels matches great because of the emotion Shawn Michaels put into the story, The Edge match: Edge had never lost to Undertaker ever, the build up to having Undertaker finally being able to beat Edge was amazing and Edge was able to ...more - germshep24

2 Steve Austin 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. more.

I love stone cold steve austin they will never have another wrestler who can have the crowd of their feet with just the mention of they name. He is just the best they ever had

Why should Stone Cold be on the top of this list? Because Stone Cold Said So. He was the best badass the WWE has ever seen. He was way better than any wrestler. I mean come on, how many wrestlers bring a beer truck near the ring and hose Mcmahons and the Rock

Come on when he pointed the gun at Vince's head it was one of the all time greatest moments in television history. I mean stone cold saved the WWE at time when wcw was hot on the trail of toppling it. While there's been a few glimmers here and there of new stars to take his place no one has made the WWE as interesting as Austin did back in the late 90s. Everyone was watching Monday night raw and dreaming of being able to do to their bosses what stone cold did to Vince. It was the best story line in wrestling of all time. I mean when he drove the beer truck into the area. It was pure brilliance

Undertaker had a good character, he had evolved his move set when he was thinking about joining the UFC, put beyong the gimmic the WWE created for him the streak and scary coroner type character he wouldn't be that great. The bottom line is Stone Cold saved the WWF during the attitude era with Stone Cold antiauthority actions WWE would have fallen to WCW, people turned into WWE each night to see what Stone would do that night should be number one and undertaker should be number 3 after Shawn Michaels (number 2) - germshep24

3 The Rock 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.

Are you guys crazy?!?! The rock is the MOST ELECTRIFYING MAN IN ALL SPORTS! He kicked undertakers ass and kicked John Cena's ass and will kick it again at wrestlemania 28 and not to mention that he WILL LAYETH THE SMACKETH DOWN ON EVERY WRESTLER'S CANDY ASS that faces him in the ring

Oh yeah! It is the greatest one, danger man of world wrestling. No one is like him. He is totally different than any other wrestlers. His attraction works into the left side of the heart of the people and this is why he is the champ of people. Only the rock is able to electrify when he plays. He is perfect with his body shape, body language and his height. He is also a good speaker with good logic. His entrance is a threat of all wrestlers. The rock has come back to win over everyone. Nothing can stop him. The rock will bring it.

I don't think anyone is here in WWE to match-up with the rock.

He played a Disney character. That's why he rules. - Sambazing

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 more.

The most charismatic WWE superstar of all time! #3? Are you kidding me?

Hbk is the greatest wrestler of all time, hands down. He could beat anyone anywhere. He beat undertaker in the first ever hell in a cell and was in the first ever ladder match and he also came the closest to beating The Undertaker at wrestlmania. HBK FOR LIFE

Yep HBK the best of best the cream of the crop the master of master the legend of legend one of the most favorite wrestlers seen I think it is so totally safe to say that HBK The Heartbreak Kid Shawn Michaels is the greatest Wrestler Ever!

All time great wrestler

5 John Cena 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. more.

John Cena does so much for the WWE and is a really hardworking person he cares about fans he's funny and entertaining.

He is the best wrestler in WWE history
He never gives up
He can kick out anybody finishing move
Just watch out John Cena is here in this world

John Cena is the best wrestler he has almost beat each and every wrestler in WWE and we can hope that john is the one who will break undertaker's streak, as you have seen john's increasing his status day by day, he is the one who will defeat The Undertaker and he is the one who will defeat the rock...

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

In the past 16 years of his career he have owned all other superstars ranging from The Undertaker to John Cena he should be on the top already. H is the best superstar to ever step foot in the squared circle.

If we start dissecting wrestling into single skills (in-ring abilities, mic skills, etc) Triple H is not the best at any particular aspect, but yet he embodies the spirit of wrestling like no others in my humble opinion. His charisma is outstanding and he can be awesome both as a heel and as a babyface. Although he was mostly (as a heel) a self-absorbed, arrogant character, he actually made a whole lot of other talents shine (Shawn Michaels, Batista, Orton, Cena just to name a few) and never refused a job. No single wrestler in the world (except Ric Flair) can match his career (in terms of longevity and accomplishments). For all these things he is the greatest (in my humble opinion).

He's coming back at the Rumble or b4 Christmas - SmoothCriminal

Oh what a bad boi

7 Hulk Hogan 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.

Hulkster must be @ #1.. He made the wrestling more popular.. WWE ran into a billion dollar industry and paved way for today's high paid stars.. He ruled Wrestling over 2 decades. Hogan is beyond icon in the wrestling world. You ask anyone who he is and they know for the most part.

His ability to sell tickets is unmatched by anyone. His past matches basically have proven that if you work a program with this guy, then you are going to get noticed.

He has never been the best worker and he has the tendency not to put people over, but face facts, fans, there is nobody more charismatic than this man.

Steve Austin sells more tickets bro and yeah anyone who faces him will be unnoticed cause soon after he buries them. Lol. - Heatnix23

Hulkamania is a legend... He made the wrestling more entertaining... Even Arnold is a huge fan of him... Hulk Still Rules BROTHER...

This Man Is The Real Maneger Of The WWE He Should Back To His Company.

Hulk Hogan is an iconic wrestler but he just wasn't that good of a wrestler shouldn't be in the top 10, great promos, but his matches were very repetitive and strength show, takes a whooping, hulks up drops a leg or body slams for a one two three yawn. The only part of him that was remotely interesting was being the leader of the NWO his matches were a little more entertaining.

Keep in mind he became popular when everyone was heavy weight wrestlers and actual wrestling wasn't important just that you looked good in the ring - germshep24

Best wrestler ever. no one defend the title night after night like Bret did.

Won the WWE champion and could have won the 1996 royal rumble but the ref didn't see him eliminate steve austin and made stone cold quit in a I quit match. - dkiller

He didn't make Stone Cold quit, he made him pass out in the ring, but he did sky rocket Stone Cold WWE career with that match - germshep24

Of course he is the best, he is number 1 because of everything:intellegent, respectful, tallent and love.

No body is safe from the viper he will kick anyone in the skull if he just tried to stand against him actually nobody can, randy is the best you must all admit that... What you think doesn't matter because he is the best wrestler ever and the best champion ever

Randy is the super champion of the WWE who can beat great wrestlers like cena, sheamus, batista, 3 h, shawn Michael, taker, batista

First place! Great champion! Best superstar! No competition! Unmatched! Unbeatable! Better than cena!

He is Best Heel in WWE of All Time and Also he is Popular So he Deserves 7 or 6 Place

10 CM Punk 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. more.

One of the most talented wrestlers in the WWE. CM Punk is the total package and he is incredible on the mic.

CM Punk deserves to be on the top ten because Punk is the Best in the World. There are a few Superstars as influential to the WWE Universe as CM Punk. Always controversial, Punk has never been afraid to speak to his mind. Having won multiple World Championships, Punk has the skills to back up his words and the ambition to inspire change in WWE. He caused an uproar in 2011 when he left the company with the WWE Championship in hand. But his controversial absence paid dividends, as he became a fan favorite upon his eventual return.

This pisses me off, CM Punk is the Best in the ring and on the mic. He can cut promos better than Stone Cold, The Rock, John Cena, and everybody else in WWE of all time. He has put on great matches that will be remembered for ever. He is the only two time Money in The Bank Winner! He is the greatest WWE Champion of not only the modern era, of ALL TIME. 434 days as WWE Champion, more than John Cena, The Rock, The Undertaker, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Bret Hart, and Shawn Michaels. PEOPLE OPEN YOUR EYES CM Punk HAS BEEN THE BEST IN THE WORLD SINCE DAY ONE GIVE HIM SOME RESPECT ALREADY.

13 Brock Lesnar Brock Lesnar Brock Edward Lesnar is an American professional wrestler and former amateur wrestler, professional American football player, and mixed martial artist who is currently signed to WWE.

Super powerful, he had to retire because he was too dangerous in the ring and caused many injures. Now he's in UFC. I don't envy whoever he fights.

I Love this guy because the beast brock lesnar most dangerous former ufc. Wwf. WWE mma on then WWE world heavyweight champion brock lesnar

In real no wrestler in WWE could even stand 10 seconds in a match with brock lesnar. He has honed the skill of mixed martial arts which makes him even more dangerous than when he arrived to the scene the first time. Cena is at no- 2 in this list only because lesnar left WWE at his peak if lesnar as been around the last decade in WWE the his stature in WWE would be even bigger than that of taker, hogan, Michaels etc. Moreover let me tell all the cena fans that the fu now (aa) is just a cheap attempt to copy of f5 don't believe me than check the record. Brock lesnar once broke the ring by slamming big show from the top this shows how much strength he has.

I think there are wrestler that can beat lesnar in fact Cena and HHH done it

His power and confident make him powerful and one of the best wrestler in WWE

Brock is best

Randy Orton.. Rey Mysterio... Hell He beat Shawn Michaels on consecutive occasions in the same month including defeating him to retain the world title

Who are you so ; tell chris jericho to fight greatest player of all time stone cold steve austin

Y2J is the best at what he does. This guy can play all sorts of matches-ladder, steel cage, last man standing. Plus he is one of the greatest heels of his generation along with triple H.

This is the man who defeated The Rock and Stone Cold at the same night to win the Undisputed champion man!

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

Goldberg is the Man. He is very powerful and he beat all of WWE wrestlers. He beat batista, triple h, the rock, jericho, kane, batista, randy orton, ric flair, sid, hogan, sting, kevin nash, scott hall and...
His strength is in his jackhammer on big show.


Goldberg is the man with Iron Fist, you cannot simply compare him with other Wrestlers of all Generation. The people that don't believe me, they definitely need to watch his Journey in WCW, his undefeated Streak of 173-0 & all the big name like Hulk Hogan, Lex Luger, Raven, Triple H and list go on, were never be able to come to the level that Goldberg goes, so before commenting upon disliking this comment PLEASE first watch at least 10 matches of Goldberg...

Beat hulk hogan in peak hulkamania mode. Dominated undertaker in 91. Dominated andre the giant. Beat every1 that mattered in WWE from 88 to 91. Created a super hero type character with the greatest intensity

He Is The Most Prominent Wrestler And His Place Is On Number 2 because He Is Most Strategic And Full Of Stamina I Love His Style He Should Be At 2 After Goldberg

Macho without a doubt was the entertainment of all his matches, he kept you on the edge of your seat on all his matches. When he was a bad guy you didn't expect him to turn good and vise versa, all the other wrestlers especially four moves hogan you knew what the outcome was gonna be right away. I know I stopped watching wwf wrestling once he left.. It really became lame.

He performed the WWF in the late 80s and at the early 90s. He has in 3 Wrestlemania Main Events. The first time was against the Chinese legendary superstar Ricky Steamboat "The Dragon", and he lost after the "Dragon's Revenge" from his broken-neck. Then in 1989, he faced the King Hulk Hogan after thrilling Miss Elizabeth, his spouse, but he lost. In 1992, Ric Flair "The Nature Boy" has posted a video of him with a picture with Elizabeth. Randy has refused every interview and faced at the Main Event of the year and he won that time. He was probably unlucky at Wrestlemania but he has the 8th best Wrestlemania moment after his wedding to Miss Elizabeth at the WWF entrance. The former Intercontinental champion was one of the most hated superstars of his era. Elizabeth and him both died.

Macho Man Randy Savage Is Tough Enough Too Fight. Anyway Why Will You Put Jeff Hardy In Front Of Macho Man Like You Don't Know Anything Thetoptens. Randy Was the Entertainment Of Matches as You Said But Did You Know He's Better Than Ricky The Dragon Steamboat.

Batista is definitely #1! He's been in hardest match ever and won. One sentence he said was " You don't know what it's like to be in a cage with animal. "

You are best wrestler in WWE! Batista when you defeat randy Orton the face of randy Orton is really very funny! And I am so angry on your friend rey mestireo I never accept this but I want to know why you friend ship is broken. I know this have great reason your oppnents do this I will never accept this but maybe this is randy orton I want broken face of under taker because I know you are a legend of WWE you have to defeat every superstar of WWE

This guy is great at wrestling, and that what I just said was one of the reasons I came here. But the MAIN reason why I came here was that 2 weeks ago from now, I had a little feeling that I was going to get a little bit POed. And that feeling just came true. And you know what it is? I'll tell you. People on the Monday Night that Batista returned started to tweet that "The Animal" will WIN the royal rumble. Which is exactly what happened last night. Now I start seeing people tweeting how Batista shouldn't even have won it or didn't even deserve to win it. Now I start hearing people booing Batista tonight? PEOPLE, What did Batista do? He's only been in the WWE for a week, and at least get a little bit more respect than this. He only won the Royal Rumble, which is impressive because it was his second royal rumble win. My point is, He's a very talented wrestler and a very athletic man. Just stop criticizing him. He didn't even do anything wrong!

When he entire ring all men women side of ring stand up and salute him. he is my best superstar all time...

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 more.

Andre The Giant doesn't have great wrestling skills but because of his size and 15 year win streak I feel Andre should at least be in the top 10

15 years undefeated that's longer than most careers on this list

The 8th wonder of the world is the greatest wrestler of all time, everyone stood in awe of this man and nobody could truly beat him, he has the longest undefeated streak in the history of wrestling, he truly is the champion of champions.

André was everything that a wrestler need to, plus a very charming man.

True, the fact that, in real life, the Olympic champion would beat any one of these guys in combat is probably not reason enough to give him the vote, but add that he's one of the best in-ring performers, that he can be a hilarious heel or a likable face, and that he has the best theme music EVER, and that's more than enough to give him the vote.

His intensity is unmatched... Very few have such intensity and integrity to compete in a wrestling bout like him. Never ever count out the Olympic winner! He should be in the top 10 for sure. This current ranking (24) is actually an insult to what he's done for all these years.

Should be higher, one of the most underrated wrestlers of all time, a great wrestler and very entertaining with his skits with Stone Cold and his rivalry with Edge - germshep24

26 Mick Foley Mick Foley Michael Francis "Mick" Foley Sr. is an American retired professional wrestler, writer, color commentator, actor and voice actor.

There are a lot of people voting who are apparently too young to have ever seen Cactus Jack or Mankind in the ring. If they had, Mick Foley's rating would have been much higher. This man completely sacrificed his body in every match. In the ring, a few good throws and a choke slam might stop him; in real life, you would a half dozen Marines and a bulldozer.

One of the coolest (funniest) costumes I've ever seen on a superstar. He is really Mick Foley, one of the greatest wrestlers who ever lived. He is also Mankind who got chokeslammed off of a cell by Undertaker onto an announcers table and lived to tell the tale. His incredible finisher and wrestling make him one of the greatest.

The classical wrestler of all time... & he is a good writer too... Best hardcore wrestler...

Mick Foley is the person who changed ratings of WCW and Raw. He made awesome matches against Undertaker, Rock, and Kurt Angle. He's a risk taker.

27 Sting Sting

The fact that sting isn't even in the top 20 on this list just shows how much of a joke it is and should not be taken seriously. Easily one of the best of all time with a perfect combination of athleticism, wrestling talent and charisma. His crow gimmick is one of the best gimmicks in wrestling history

Gotta be in the top 6 or 7. Nothing like watching Sting putting the Scorpion Death Lock on unfortunate opponent! - BigBillyBob23

Sting is the ICON! A man who the WWF has relentlessly pursued for such a long time. He is seriously on par with the likes of The Undertaker, Hulk Hogan and Jake "the Snake" Roberts.

I would put him on par with Bret Hart, to say Hulk Hogan, Jake the Snake would mean that he was only a good promo guy, but he was a good promo guy and a good wrestler - germshep24

28 Bruno Sammartino Bruno Sammartino

This list shouldn't say "best WWE wrestler of all time;" it should say "Best WWE wrestler of the past 10 years." All time means since the beginning of the WWE, folks. That goes back to 1963. Sammartino held the title for a total of 12 years, dominated the promotion like no one before or since and was known, for good reason, as "the Living Legend." People who say a list covers all time but only go back 10 or 15 years need to get a reality check.

Nobody ever held on to the WWF (what the WWE used to be known as) title longer. Bruno didn't need a theme song, he didn't need to be showy, he just kicked butt.

Do any of you actually watch wrestling? Bruno was the best of his time and held the WWE championship longer than ANYONE on this list, he needs to be Number 1!

One of the biggest wrestlers of the B&W television times, unfortunately WWE doesn't promote wrestler pre 80's so the only way to find his matches is to search for them, so not many know about him or can see his greatest matches as easy as you could for Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, Ricky Steamboat, and other superstars of the 80s - germshep24

29 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.

I would say excluding what happened a few weeks ago you can never take away his pride dedication and hardwork to wrestling truly should be on this page

How can anyone put someone like John Morrison ahead of Chris Benoit, this guy is a ' legend, man. Gotta put him in the top 20 at least, I mean he went from number 1 in the royal rumble to win it in 2004, and beat Shawn Michaels and Triple H to win the World Heavyweight Championship at Wrestlemania, and still, someone like John Morrison gets in front of him, when will you people learn.

He is small but hard soldier in the ring. No one can beat him easily. In WWE history he is one of the most famous person.

30 Rob Van Dam Rob Van Dam Robert Alex "Rob" Szatkowski, better known by his ring name Rob Van Dam, is an American professional wrestler and occasional actor.

So totally awesome! He is really good at dodging hits, kicks, dives, signature moves, and finishers. He is very flexible. He is also very good-looking. He was a cute baby!

He is simply the best high flyer ever in WWE or the impact he is just an all around beast

He is my favorite wrestler of all time and is the greatest. I have no doubt that if van dam was still in the wee he could easily match up to greats like The Undertaker or John Cena!

My favorite - EliHbk

31 Big Show Big Show Paul Randall Wight, Jr. is an American professional wrestler and actor, better known by his ring name Big Show.

He's actually incredible. He's so big and strong, he has a great song to walk on to, he's INSANELY tall, and he's one of the most famous wrestlers in the world. Imagine walking into him in a dark alley and you had no idea who he was... YIKES! Laugh out loud - Mushroom99

Big show is the best wrestler ever he should be in the top 3 and if anyone pins submissions or eliminates Big Show I will come in the ring and use my signature and finisher on them - Thebigstrong

Big show is to strong he did beat the streak of the great shoe khali hope jack swagger is next

He is very good plyer
He plays well his move is nice (chock slamp)

I've seen him kick john cena's ass

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

The Phenomenal One is one of the best out there. The triple threat match with Joe and Daniels was TNA's first 5 star match. He is currently the best high flyer in the world. He proved that he was very talented when facing Shinsuke Nakamura at Wrestle Kingdom 10.

In an alternate universe, in which he made his name in WWE rather than TNA, Styles is #1 on this list.

He truly is Phenomenal. Beats Cena 3 times, even though the first one wasn't clean.

Greatest in ring performer of all time
He is the hybrid version of rey mysrerio and hbk

33 Sheamus Sheamus Stephen Farrelly is an Irish professional wrestler and actor. He is currently signed to the American professional wrestling promotion WWE, where he performs under the ring name Sheamus.

Sheamus has been the WWE champ and United States champ. Plus he has beat John Cena in a table match. He was breakout star of the year in 2010.

He is the best in whatever he does. He almost ended Cenation. He is very courageous and does not fear anyone

Sheamus is the hottest thing on Smackdown right now. In the beginning he said he would become Smackdown. He was right. He's the missing link to wrestling. His brutal, tough Celtic ways are new and exciting. He's also very easy on the eyes and lets not forget about that marble body. What can't you love about him. He is the ultimate wrestling warrior.

Best fighter

36 Sin Cara Sin Cara Sin Cara is a professional wrestling character used by WWE, currently portrayed by Jorge Arias, also known as Hunico.

Even he is new, he must be from the top 10, he is a great wrestler that'll probably bea champ when he will be given a chance. And he hadn't been defeated since he begun.

This guy is better than rey, he's more athletic and skillful. Sin Cara will definitely be a MASSIVE superstar in the future...

He rules he is the best wrestler in WWE. He can do any and I mean any move in the we he can just about rake the world and kill all the other wrestlers

38 Ricky Steamboat Ricky Steamboat Richard Henry Blood Sr., better known by his ring name Ricky "The Dragon" Steamboat, is an American retired professional wrestler.

For me, one of the best legends of all time! Many people don't know him but he was one of the greatest superstars in his time.

I'm just going to say it, it was Ricky Steamboat that made Ric Flair a legend, before him he was merely just a Hulk Hogan (a great mic performer, but a boring in ring performer), Ric/Ricky rivalry was the greatest thing outside of the Shawn and Bret rivalry - germshep24

Should be way higher, so many wrestler that shouldn't be higher than him but are because the people that are voting don't know wrestling before the attitude era - germshep24

Why is he so low on this list, he should be in the top 10

39 Seth Rollins Seth Rollins Colby Lopez is an American professional wrestler and actor who is signed to WWE under the ring name Seth Rollins. He is the Current Intercontinental Champion.

One of the greatest Superstars in years. I really enjoy it, when he is in the ring. Can't believe that guys like Reigns, Miz, Slater and Gabriel are on higher spots than he is!

This must be a joke, why is he behind people like Miz? He should be the highest former shield member, but for some reason he's last. He should be near the top, but he is somehow 114, WHY! At least put him in the top 50!

Seth Rollins is the greatest wrestler of all time! How he is Number 42!? This is almost the worst thing ever to happen! I'd vote 1,000 times!

I like his game he is the future wwe champion

He is one of the best in the whole wide world

He is the show off. Of course hé id good

He's a great guy and all, but his finisher stinks. I really disagree with his finisher being "painful." But no one over sells like Dolph

Great wrestler not good at promoting himself, most unfortunately know him has only one of the corporate goons that was there to take stone cold Stoners - germshep24

He play very well.

Good but forgettable

Backlund,class act. Great matches with Bruno samartino.

48 Dean Malenko Dean Malenko

Should be a lot higher on this list. This credit to professional wrestling was a phenom. Dean Malenko, like Karl Gotch before him, was a master of shoot wrestling, magnificent, polished purist who never had a dull match. The Iceman of a Thousand Holds, underrated much like the more modern Cesaro, another incredible talent.

You are saying Justin Gabriel better then Ambrose

Dean Malenko. Dean flippin' Malenko. One of the greatest technical wrestlers of all time, he can have a good match with anybody, just watch his match against Scotty 2 Hotty at Backlash. - EspioTheChameleon

Man of 1000 holds

50 Ultimo Dragon Ultimo Dragon Yoshihiro Asai is a Japanese professional wrestler and actor, better known as Último Dragón. In addition to having trained in Japan, Asai learned to wrestle in the lucha libre style while working in Mexico.

The only superstars who deserve to be on the list are the memorable ones. He is forgettable.

It is sad that the best ring performers are the forgettable ones, although to be fair he wasn't a WWE Wrestler, he was famous in Japan, when wrestling was at its height - germshep24

Kick his mask

Ultimo Dragon is by FAR the best Lucha-Libre Wrestler of all time. He is better than Mistico! JUST! When Mistico versed Ultimo Dragon, Ultimo kicked BUTT! His finisher called the Asai DDT is the absolute BEST finisher in the WWE (WWF) and Lucha-Libre EVER! WHAT... Wait a minute! 86th in the list! Whoever made this list should GET A LIFE! He should be in the Top 10 at least! HE IS the BEAST!



Showing your ignorance there, Japan and Mexican wrestlers absolutely loved masks, WWE was very prejudice and doesn't like to promote other countries wrestling styles, the only reason we even have Rey Mysterio in WWE is because of the WCW rivalry who actually promoted Japanese and Mexican style wrestling - germshep24
