Top 10 Strongest WWE Wrestlers of All Time

You've seen them lift opponents like rag dolls, slam bodies through tables, and toss grown men across the ring. In the world of WWE, strength isn't just about muscle. It's about charisma, presence, and the power to awe a crowd.

Imagine a man lifting a 500-pound behemoth on his shoulders or another bending steel bars with his bare hands. These aren't scenes from a superhero movie, but actual moments in WWE history. The sheer strength exhibited by these athletes has left fans and fellow wrestlers alike in stunned disbelief.

Over the years, WWE has been home to a multitude of powerhouses, each leaving a lasting legacy with their displays of raw power. From legends like Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant to modern behemoths like Braun Strowman and Brock Lesnar, the list of strongmen is long and varied. But who truly stands above the rest?
The Top Ten
1 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

He lifted the Big Show and Edge. So, yes, he will be on any top 10 strongest WWE superstar list. He can do anything he wants to. Best of all, he has never tapped out in his whole life.

John Cena is amazing. I love you, Siri. You're the best. He says he's weak? Yeah, get out of here. Cena, you're amazing. You're my favorite.

I'm your biggest fan in the world. My name is Philip Robert McGregor. If you can give me an autograph, I would love it.

John Cena has not lost even a single fair fight and he defeated Mark Henry (World's Strongest Man) in arm wrestling. Even Mark Henry salutes him. Most importantly, he has never tapped out in his entire career.

2 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.

I, of course, agree Brock Lesnar is strong, but remember he hasn't been able to defeat Goldberg. Just check out No Way Out when Goldberg confronted Brock Lesnar. Brock was about to run out of the ring, and even when Goldberg interrupted Brock's interview, Brock felt threatened.

Goldberg is stronger than Brock Lesnar, as evidenced by his military press to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania. Go Goldberg! Goldberg!

Former UFC Heavyweight champion, respected by every WWE figure including Stone Cold Steve Austin, The Rock, and Bill Goldberg to name a few. Lesnar is still dominating WWE. He is fast, strong, rough, and can even do a shooting star press.

The guy is a machine (proof is his UFC workout video). Apart from Cesaro today, no other younger WWE performers possess such versatility. Many have come and gone, but none like him.

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

Goldberg has not lost a single match in his career in WCW or WWE that was ever conducted without foul play. He is undisputed when the match is one-on-one and played fair. Within a single year, he defeated every single superstar in WWE, including Brock Lesnar. Actually, if you tune into YouTube, you can see Brock running. The man can still do a backflip at this age. His record of 173-0 in WCW reigns supreme. The streak would not have been broken if that wrestler hadn't shocked him with an electric rod during the match.

In this particular match, he knocked down everyone in the locker room who tried to bring him down. Then, this man made a foul move with an electric rod, and that is how Kevin Nash won. Just take a look at Wikipedia and witness Goldberg's matches in WCW and WWE and then vote. This is how you do justice to any man or any sport, not by voting for one's favorite wrestler without knowing what others have accomplished. It is Goldberg all the way.

4 Mark Henry Mark Jerrold Henry is an American powerlifter, Olympic weightlifter, strongman, and professional wrestler who is currently signed to WWE.

The guy is an accomplished powerlifter. He has broken records in the big three and won competitions by miles, drug-free. He was stronger in high school than most of the dedicated strength trainers you will come across in a gym.

His talent and raw strength should put him at the top. I can't speak for these other guys because they were not required to pass drug tests during their ultimate displays of power and strength.

Mark Henry can bench press over 700 lbs. He world strongest slammed Big Show - 485 lbs held across his chest, picked up over his head, and slammed - and he cleaned and pressed 451 lbs with the greatest of ease and held it up there for over five seconds.

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

Big Show is so strong he can flip over a jeep weighing 14.34 pounds. Because of his KO punch, Big Show has been my idol since I was three to four years old. My name is Cory Michael Koller.

Brock Lesnar can squat 1,000 pounds, but if I were older and stronger, I could lift and press 2,000 pounds (1 ton)! Still, Big Show is number two among the WWE's strongest men.

In their prime, I think only the Big Show could have handled Andre the Giant. Definitely between the two of them.

Big Show is the best wrestler in the world, and he is the strongest. Come on, people, become a fan now! I hope you like my comment.

6 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

He might not be the strongest, but he is, of course, strong! He could tombstone the 450 lbs Vader with ease in 1997 and could even chokeslam the 600+ lbs Yokozuna in 1994 right in the air! And it was not easy because Taker was thin and scrawny at that time.

He was able to chokeslam the 7'3, 420 lbs Great Khali, despite his age, in 2006. He was also able to do the last ride on the 400 lbs Mark Henry. He can ambush 5-10 men in the ring too. He really deserves to be in the top 10!

In his prime, The Undertaker was extremely strong. He is tall and has that 'never give up' aura around him.

A broken orbital bone, broken nose, severe concussion, plus bleeding like a broken dam, and he still carried on until the end. The fight, determination, and heart say it all.

7 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.

As a fan of Kane, I must say, Kane is the best! History also shows that Kane is indeed the best. I'm really unhappy that Kane was never defeated by any other wrestler. He was defeated only by WWE scripts and WWE writers. If you watch Kane's matches, you'll see that every time Kane is about to win, someone distracts him and Kane loses.

I know WWE created our Kane, but I also say loudly that WWE ruined our Kane as well. They never allowed Kane to become a great champion, conqueror, or legend. They used Kane only for monstrous, dangerous, scary moments. Kane is the one guy who has been with the company for such a long period of time. Kane is old, and I'm sure he knows that a title run or a long period of singles run isn't going to happen anytime soon, if ever. But what does Kane get in return? Nothing! Absolutely nothing! However, fans have never cheated on him. They loved him then, they love him now, and they will continue to love Kane forever.

8 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.

The trick about Khali is that he never trained. More than one person has said that if the Indian Giant, Khali, had ever trained, he probably could have set every strength record there was. Unfortunately, his size also created a huge strain on his joints, meaning that he had little flexibility.

Because of his size and natural power, he was the most devastating, but I don't think he could ever fully utilize his power. He was simply too big. Mark Henry is probably the strongest of all time.

He benches 800 pounds and can lift 600 pounds five times. He was also a bodybuilder. However, he is a bit slow when walking, but he is undeniably a strongman.

9 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.

The guy is The Rock. Can you believe he has defeated the man that never tapped, John Cena? That match was the greatest match I have ever seen, and that match is in the list of greatest WWE/WWF matches of the top ten list. The 8-time and 358 days holding WWE Champion is the most money-taking superstar in WWE history.

The electrifying man, with the electrifying moves and the electrifying theme song, is gonna rock on WWE. He is semi-retired and his age is 45 years, but he can win the WWE championship, WWE Universal championship, and many more. At last, I would say that The Rock is the most popular and strongest wrestler in WWE history.

10 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... read more

Andre's strength was never tested. He is one of the only wrestlers to be feared by everyone in his day. Basically, the rule was if Andre wanted to beat you, it was over, because he was so strong. There is a story about Andre and the Ultimate Warrior that is really crazy!

During their squabble, Andre was supposed to throw the Warrior into the ropes, and the Warrior was supposed to clothesline Andre. Well, apparently, the Warrior really hit Andre very hard. Andre went to Bobby the Brain and told him what the Warrior did. Bobby told Andre that he needed to go and tell Vince. Andre refused, saying he would talk to the Warrior himself and told the Warrior to ease off.

The next night, the Warrior hit Andre even harder. When he told Bobby the Brain again, Bobby said to him, You have to tell Vince what is going on. Andre told Bobby, No, I will handle the Warrior. The next night, Andre threw the Warrior into the ropes, and the Warrior came even faster and harder. Andre put his fist up and almost knocked the Warrior out. He was big and strong, and nobody could beat him.

The Contenders
11 Roman Reigns Leati Joseph "Joe" Anoa'i (Roman Reigns) was born on May 25, 1985. He is an American professional wrestler and former professional Canadian football player.

He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs under ring name Roman Reigns.

His finishing move is Spear and Moment of Silence... read more

Roman is completely overlooked for his strength capabilities. He's picked up both Dean Ambrose (225 lbs) and Seth Rollins (217 lbs) on his shoulders for a Samoan Drop back in FCW, a fact that everyone conveniently forgets about. He can easily squat 500 lbs on his shoulders, and he's Samoan dropped Big Show and Mark Henry.

He's an unstoppable force with that spear of his and should not be ignored or overlooked. He represents brute and raw strength incarnate right now and is a fierce competitor.

He is my favorite wrestler. He eliminated 12 wrestlers in the 2014 Royal Rumble and then won the 2015 Royal Rumble. He has won the World Heavyweight Championship three times in under six months.

He has earned his spot in the main event two times, against Brock Lesnar and Triple H. I think he should be in the top 5. Love you, Reigns.

12 Ryback Ryback Allen Reeves is an American professional wrestler that performs in wrestling shows on the indy circuit. He is a former WWE superstar and Intercontinental Champion.

Looking at him as a pure wrestler, he is the strongest man. Maybe Kazmaier and Mark Henry are a little bit stronger, but not by much. Forget about Cena, Batista, Lesnar, Goldberg, Triple H... they are not even close to him in the gym. I know. I saw them!

All that's true. I want him to put a stop to HHH, Triple H at Wrestlemania 31, and end his career forever with the shell shock and a clothesline meat hook!

Ryback is strong. He shell shocked Mark Henry, Big Show, Khali, Tensai, Kane. Ryback is the third strongest after Big Show and Mark Henry.

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

The great, the strong, the Animal Champ is really good, much like The Rock, the people's champion. He is stronger than John Cena, who is also quite strong. However, Batista was always stronger, consistently holding the title of World Heavyweight Champion at Smackdown!

He was a good man, with some special moves like the spear, spinebuster, Batista bomb, and Batista bite. I love the Animal Batista character in the WWE.

I am Batista's biggest fangirl. I have always loved him ever since I was a kid. I love his passion for wrestling. He also has very cool and meaningful tattoos.

He is indeed The Animal. I don't care what others say about him. He is forever the strongest and the best wrestler. I hope he is doing well in real life.

14 Braun Strowman Adam Scherr is an American professional wrestler and former strongman. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Braun Strowman. In WWE, he is a one-time Universal Champion, a one-time Intercontinental Champion, and a two-time Raw Tag Team Champion.

Yes, Braun Strowman is stronger than Cesaro. He flipped an ambulance, so that means Braun can lift about 14,000 pounds. He is way stronger than Big E. Langston, who can bench press 575 pounds and lift 10,000 pounds.

He's a lot more like Brock Lesnar. Out of any wrestler, Ryback can bench press 565 pounds. He's the second strongest after Big E. Langston. Braun's number one.

He has done things that are way more impressive than guys like Big Show, Khali, and Ryback. He has great potential, and surely a Universal or WWE title run is in his future.

15 Bobby Lashley Franklin Robert "Bobby" Lashley is an American professional wrestler, mixed martial artist, and former collegiate amateur wrestler and former United States Army sergeant currently signed to both Bellator MMA, where he is undefeated through four heavyweight fights, and Total Nonstop Action Wrestling,... read more

He lifted the Big Show and Kane at the same time. He should be in the Hall of Fame. If he never does, I'll file a million complaints. I promise I will if he is not in the Hall of Fame sooner or later. Please do, WWE. He has amazing talent, if not the best talent.

He is the strongest. He has lifted a car with Finlay on the roof of that car. He has running powerslammed Big Show and Braun Strowman.

He lifted Elias with one hand only for 16 seconds while applying a vertical suplex on him. He can jump on the ring apron without touching the ring ropes, something no one else can do, and no one has ever done it.

16 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.

Hogan, in his prime, was 325 lbs and had 20-inch muscles, also standing at 6ft 8in. He slammed Andre at his biggest, Yokozuna, One Man Gang. Saying that Cena is strongest is incorrect. Cena, in his prime, could only bench 450 lbs, stood 6ft 1in, and weighed 253 lbs, and only had 19-inch muscles.

The only reason Cena got voted first was because of all the little kid Cena fanboys. Hogan may not be the strongest, but he should be ahead of most of these, including John Cena.

Hulk Hogan is the Babe Ruth of wrestling. In WCW, without a WWE watered-down wrestling, Hulk Hogan led WCW ratings to leave WWE in Ted Turner's dust. Hulk Hogan, in WWE, made the ultimate face, and in WCW, made the ultimate heel.

Everywhere the Hulkster goes, the wrestling company he is at becomes better than it was before he was there, and TNA is no different. TNA was barely on the map before Hogan hit the impact zone. Forever a Hulkamaniac!

17 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.

No doubt he is the strongest. I saw him lift the Big Show and survive his knockout punch.

Because he is so strong, he can beat anyone in the ring like John Cena, Alberto, and Randy Orton.

He lifted and held the Big Show there for a few seconds. Enough said.

18 Ezekiel Jackson Rycklon Stephens is a Guyanese professional wrestler best known for his tenure in WWE under the ring name Ezekiel Jackson.

If compared with all the powerhouses in WWE history, he is one of the best.

What, he is the strongest man alive! He should be in the top three.

Big Zeke can slam Big Show two times, and he can put the torture rack on the Great Khali.

19 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 WWE wrestler of all time. He has beaten every wrestler, and he can prove that he can be one. If I had to choose a wrestler to team up with, it would be Randy Orton.

His anger doesn't just help him. It also helps other people like John Cena. He should be number one instead of 16.

He is my favorite. He may not be the most powerful but is skilled. He is the face of WWE and is stronger than Roman and Dean.

You are the best. Man, you have beaten more than half of these people. You are the face of the WWE superstars. No one is better than you.

20 Antonio Cesaro Claudio Castagnoli is a Swiss professional wrestler currently signed to WWE, where he performs under the ring name Cesaro. He was previously known for his work in Ring of Honor (ROH) and various independent promotions including Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG), Combat Zone Wrestling (CZW), and Pro Wrestling... read more

Number 19? Really? John Cena does not have the most strength, and here's why: first, John Cena actually gets help from the Big Show. Big Show jumps on John Cena's shoulders so John Cena can carry him. Have you ever seen the Andre the Giant memorial battle? Cesaro didn't need any help.

Second, because Cesaro can literally swing a nearly 400-pound wrestler. Like really, he isn't that high? Third, because you can literally carry Big E with his arms. He doesn't need his shoulders to carry someone big like that. It is amazing. Again, he made it to 19. At least he isn't number 20.

21 Big E Langston Ettore Ewen is an American professional wrestler and former powerlifter and American football player who is currently performing under the ring name Big E.

Big E is the most powerful wrestler in the world...

22 Alexander Rusev
23 Ahmed Johnson

Ahmed Johnson can scoop slam Yokozuna and suplex Vader. Obviously, he is one of the most powerful wrestlers.

24 Road Warrior Animal
25 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

Stone Cold was, no doubt, one of the strongest wrestlers ever in WWE. He literally handled Brock Lesnar with ease. He even defeated The Rock (one of the greatest wrestlers in WWE) fairly.

He does not need a reason for being in the top 10. Watch his wrestling times, then you will come to know.

Austin may be smaller than Henry or Big Show, but he can make The Undertaker buried alive. I'm glad it's not a real cemetery. Ha ha!

He should be in the top five. This is not fair to him!
