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

Jeff hardy is the outstanding player and no one could do the stunts and move like him

This man made me watch wrestling. He is the most extreme superstar that I ever seen. He can jump off 20 feet to the ground, no one will do that except Jeff Hardy. Jeff Hardy should be the WWE Champion right now.

His stunts were the awesome and his extremeness was the best of the best definitely deserves my vote. He was the reason I watched WWE and when he left I stopped watching

I only watch WWE because the hardy boyz returned, best tag team and one of the greatest wrestlers alone.

23 Kurt Angle Kurt Angle


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.

The greatest WRESTLER of all time!
Only olympic gold medalist in history.

24 Andre The Giant Andre The Giant 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 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.

24?!? Are you high. - SoloPotato

25 Eddie Guerrero Eddie Guerrero Eduardo Gory "Eddie" Guerrero Llanes, was a Mexican-American professional wrestler and a member of the Guerrero wrestling family.

He was the Latino Heat. Remember him as the one winged angel!

His energy in the ring was beyond ordinary men

Simply the most beloved and charismatic Mexican wrestler ever in the WWE! Paved the way for future Mexican talent!

It is sad to see a true icon so far down on this list: he is a great technical wrestler, great performer in and out of the ring in general, was great on the mic, should be in the top ten - germshep24

26 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.

27 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!

12 year two time wwwf champ if it wasn't for him there would be no wwe.

28 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...

A perfect example of a man who rose from nothing to greatness. Mick Foley will always be a big part of my life.

29 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)

He is awesome

30 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.

WWE needs to have Chris Benoits history return

31 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!

Favorite as a kid. Rolling thunder and 5 star are legendary!

32 Sheamus 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.

R u kidding me!? 32!? Sheamus is the reason I love WWE. His signature move is awesome! I love him to pieces, also he looks so good! He can defeat any player by his amazing moves! He deserves to be in the top ten 10!

33 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.

He is phenomenal

35 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

How is he above half of these guys

38 Seth Rollins Seth Rollins Colby Lopez is an American professional wrestler and actor who is signed to WWE under the ring name Seth Rollins.

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!

Are you kidding me he is no 30.he should be at least in the top 10s and he is my favourite wrestler

39 Christian

He played a part in the creation of one of the best match types ever, TLC. He's a great guy and deserves to be a bit higher

Christian is really awesome. he can beat everyone. he is the champion of world.

Christian is awesome. He is a 2 time world champion he has been intercontinental and United States a lot of times. He had the longest time holding the ECW championship and has become tag team champion lots of times. He deserves more than this.

I thick so to

40 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

Ricky Steamboat"The Dragon" is one of the few players to have defeated Randy Savage at Wrestlemania. Him and Hulk Hogan only have did it.

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