Top 10 Greatest WWE Wrestlers of All Time
The Undertaker is the best wrestler I ever. Seen in my life and if you put the Undertaker.
And Kane together. They are even better and this Is simple. The undertaker is the best 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 Lesnar 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 hell's gate submission is brutal, his chokeslam is legendary, his ...more
The reason why he is the best wrestler of all time is because he was one of the biggest stars in every era since his debut, if not the biggest. Sure he wasn't called the face of the compony but he is called the companies conscious in every era he's been in. And everyone should know that without Taker you wouldn't have many of the superstars you love now, he was known to side with the guys in the back rather than side with the boss like Shawn Michael did. He also puts young talent over and gives them a push, unlike someone and his famous shovel. And lets face it he draws better than any superstar in history. Some of the WWE fans today only tune in hopping they see his return.
I agree with all the comments. The reason why some people don't recognise his greatness is because he "only" has 7 world championships, but that's not his fault. In WWE, big men do not win many championships and they don't last long as champions (for example, Big Show, Kane or Mark Henry).
Also, you should consider that The Undertaker lost his three World Heavyweight Championships in unfair situations. The first one against Edge cashing in the Money in the Bank contract after The Undertaker had fought Batista and had been attacked by Mark Henry. His second reign ended by the decision of Vickie Guerrero, and the last one was in an Elimination Chamber match where Shawn Michaels attacked him with a Sweet Chin Music when he was about to tombstone Jericho.
To sum up, don't judge The Undertaker by his championships, but look at the great matches he's had, his incredible entrance and and the 21-0 streak at Wrestlemania.
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 storyline in wrestling of all time. I mean when he drove the beer truck into the area. It was pure brilliance
Stone Cold Steve Austin is arguably the most popular wrestler ever to lace up a pair of boots and his status as a first-ballot Hall of Famer is justified by his many World title reigns and his role in the eventual victory of the WWF in the Monday Night Wars. I would say that Stone Cold Steve Austin is undoubtedly the greatest WWE Wrestler.
Not the greatest overall run because his career was cut short by injury, but the greatest and hottest run of any major superstar in history. Stone Cold Steve Austin helped make wrestling seem cool to teenagers, young adults, and adults who had become lapsed fans. Could you imagine a maverick politician being able to flip off President Trump, hit him with a Stunner, dump beer on him, and then chug more beer? Stone Cold Steve Austin was a blue-collar superhero. He was simultaneously exceptional & relatable. If you agree with my assessment of the Texas Rattlesnake, gimme a hell yeah!
Austin is the greatest of all time because he largely helped WWE reach new levels in the late 90'. Nobody attracted a crowd like Austin did. Many say that Hogan is bigger that austin. This is not true because in 4 years Austin made more money for wwe than hogan ever did.
If hogan is greater why did wwe beat wcw? It's simple to understand why wwe beat wcw. This is because Austin attracted more fans than hogan and because Austin sold more merchandise than hogan.Hogan was wcw's biggest star yet they still lost because Austin was just too influential to the business. Hogan is awesome and he is wcw's biggest star in history but I do not believe that he is on Austins level.
From revolutionizing the tag team division with the Rockers to revolutionizing the wrestling business with Degeneration-X, Shawn Michaels has done it all. He is a multiple-time World Champion but it was during his second run with the company that he really cemented himself as one of the greats. Even in his 40s, he could have a great match with a broomstick and he will go down as the greatest worker of all time. One of the absolute greatest WWE will ever know.
Arguably the best in-ring wrestler of all time, there is a reason he is named "Mr. WrestleMania". He puts on classics with the likes of Bret Hart,Kurt Angle, and The Undertaker.
For the ones arguing over who is the "best" in ring wrestler ever, you'll be arguing forever. That is completely subjective. I personally like the more technical mat based wrestling, like Kurt Angle, Chris Benoit, or Bret Hart. But never before (and most likely never again) has there been someone that can ADAPT to his opponent like Shawn Michaels. If you want a technical masterpiece like his matches against Angle, he'll give it to you. If you want a high flying thrill ride like his matches with Shelton and Mysterio, he'll give it to you. Or if you want a bloody brawl like his matched with Triple H, he'll give it to you.
If you're looking for character progression and charisma, The HeartBreak Kid is your man. Shawn oozed charisma. The dude was an absolute savage in D-Generation X, but then could turn around and perform one of the most emotional matches ever with the likes of Ric Flair at WrestleMania. They don't call him "Mr. WrestleMania" for nothing. Shawn Michaels is the ...more
The Icon, the show stopper, the main event, the heart break kid,
Mr. Wrestlemania, mr. Hall of fame the one and only Shawn Michaels, I mean I really don't know how many names like these he has to be given for people to see that HE is THE Sports Entertainer! All his accolades, all his wrestlemania classics his charisma, his charm, his drive, his passion for this business and most importantly his longevity and loyalty to this business is like that of none other. He is a living legend. Heel, face, tweener, doesn't matter, he always made you feel a feeling like none other! Anything he's touched has turned to gold! #1!
No doubt about.
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.
He has been dubbed The Great One, The People's Champion and The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment. The Rock had an amazing career and I would say he would be the the 3rd or 4th greatest WWE wrestler.
While Austin did save the WWE from WCW in 1998 and was the poster boy of the Attitude Era, The Rock raised the company to new heights in late 1999 to 2000 when he became the face of the WWE. 2000 was the WWE's most successful year from a financial and ratings prospective and Austin was gone from injury for 80% of it. Professional wrestling is all about showmanship and The Rock was incredible on the mic and knew how to keep audiences engaged. While he was never booked as strongly as Hogan, Austin, Cena, Triple H, or the Undertaker, The Rock always managed to be a major attraction while putting over mid-carders. He was perfect as both a heel and a babyface and will always be known as the People's Champion!
The Rock is the greatest ever in WWF. He's like "light years" ahead of others. Played babyface, heel to perfection. Also can sing, play guitar, can play rugby, & most importantly he's the greatest entertainer ever. Any matured guy who has seen WWF during 1998-2002 will have same thoughts. Out of many many promos, at least 200 promos are extremely funny of his WWF career, Saturday night live funny stuff,... Etc. I can spend years watching his YouTube videos. Wrestling is a script, so I doesn't matter who won/lost. What matters is... who entertained fans as a wrestler. I did not see a single video of any other wrestler which is funny. & ya, I more thing, he's the only wrestler who didn't get involved in politics of changing the script written by writers (Read Vince russo book or see his YouTube video talking about Rock)
John Cena does so much for the WWE and is a really hardworking person he cares about fans he's funny and entertaining.
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...
Cena is a 10-time WWE Champion and, whether you like him or not, he was the name and face of the company . He has headlined countless WrestleManias and been involved in many high-profile feuds including his current war with the Rock. He is definitely one of my favrioute wrestlers
I have been watching WWE since 1997. Until now, there are two men who calls themselves the best of all time: The Rock and CM Punk. The Rock may be one of the best of Attitude Era. CM Punk has just been cared since 2011. I think these guys action sucks. The Rock is trying to say he is the greatest of all time by luckily beating John Cena at WrestleMania28. CM Punk is trying to call himself the best in the world but he is nothing to Sin Cara. John Cena never says he is the best. I grew and gathered all the best things of Attitude Era including The Rock's, StoneCold Steve Austin,.. And himself then showed that to the world. Even you like him or hate him, John Cena is still the best face of WWE. He never tries to prove to the world he is the greatest of all time like The Rock or best in the world like CM Punk. He just proves that he loves and enjoys to devoting and makes the Cenation icon only under him.
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 gets unfairly treated by the IW C for being Stephanie McMahons husband. In reality HHH was winning titles before he was married to Steph.
Always one of the top on the records book. HHH dominates the WWE Championship, World Heavyweight Championship, even Tag Team championship. Triple H was part of groups that have revolutionized the WWE, everyone is familiar with the likes of D-generation X and Evolution. Furthermore, he was part of the WWF during the attitude era which was probably the hardest time a wrestler can win a championship due to the competition. Yet, regardless of his young age he as able to be one of the greatest wrestlers during that time. After the attitude era, and the retirements of these wrestlers, he still dominated the ring against the likes of John Cena and Edge.
The only thing you can deny is that HHH doesn't have a strong record like The Undertaker or Shawn Michaels. However, despite his age, he still active in the ring to this date as he is the current World Heavyweight Champion!
by the way TEAM AUTHORITY
As for me I think that Triple H's got to be the top one. I really think that Triple H and Shawn Michaels have a same power, but if it comes down to one... I will go with Triple H, Not that I like to say Triple H is better than HBK.. but. Triple H the 13 time world champion, that is just the only thing I'm gonna list because if I try to type all things that Triple H have done it's gonna take me 16 years. Because in every year every match of his career it's been a hell of a match, and most of his career he has been a main event. I have no words to describe Triple H and his Career, Triple H is one hell of a Wrestler, he has an amazing career, he is the GAME, he is the King of Kings. And that's for Triple H and HBK, I LOVE'EM TO DEATH. long live. RULES, for life.
Hulkamania" was a real presence in the 1980s, as millions of children bought into the real-life superhero-like persona of the "Hulkster." He has drawn more money than anyone in the wrestling business and he is the biggest star this industry will ever know. Praise to Hulk Hogan.
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.
Although he hogged up main events and didn't have the greatest in ring skills, he changed Wrestling forever and made the industry what it is today.
Not the best looking, not the most talented, and not the most respected, however, Hulk is The Biggest draw and most popular and well known wrestler in wrestling history! People who don't watch wrestling know the name Hulk Hogan! How many fans in attendance for Hogan vs Andre, Hogan vs Rock, Hogan vs Warrior? Remember, pro wrestling is not olympic wrestling, it's not entirely real like a sport, it's entertainment! Hulk and Vince M have done more for wrestling than anybody else! From Japan, Canada, and the States, Hulk has received the loudest and longest ovations/cheers in history! Love him or hate him, Hulk Hogan is, by far, the Greatest wrestler of all time! Facts are Facts!
Some may have great personality or be really good with mic skills but it is the in ring performance that really matters and Bret hart was the best at it. Even something as trivial as punches and kicks were perfection. He was a good technical wrestler with a pinch of tradition, good at hardcore battle leaving all orthodoxy behind and also an acrobat to a certain extent. To add to this a great theme music, attire and character helped a lot. And unlike many legends he attracted all sections of fans ; kids, men, women and the older crowd.
Bret is the greatest of all-time in my opinion. His skills helped anyone who wrestled him to have their greatest match - British Bulldog, Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels etc. Bret was the first true "World" champion as no one had defended the championship belt in more countries than the Hitman did. I am amazed by how far down the list he is currently and I imagine it is from current fans who don't know any better. I mean how is Triple H so high? I would be the champion so often if I was married to the boss' daughter too. Seriously!
Genuine wrestling skills, no steroids, carried the company through an awful time, made crap opponents look good, took all the bumps, never injured anyone, best entrance music including sergeant pepper jackets. After watching pro wrestling since 1988 he is still my favourite talent to rewatch, Michaels was an incredible athlete but his gimmick of an obnoxious arrogant male stripper was way too disgusting even in the world of wwe. Bret came across as a mans man & all the family could enjoy him. They don't make them like that anymore.
You cannot put Shawn Michaels dumb ass in front of Bret. Bret is the most humble (other than undertaker) and in my opinion he always did what was best for the business. Don't care what anyone says, Bret has always been my favorite and always will be. Screw Triple H and Shawn. By the way screw Scott Hall for his lame ass drunken remarks on Bret being a pansy. Watch his documentary and tell me who would act different? I'd spit in Vince's face 10 times over.
Randy is the best... And at the age of 24 he become the youngest world champion ever... He the perfect champion... The apex predator... THE VIPER randy is the best wrestler ever been born in the WWE better than John Cena, under taker, shawn michels, batista, and every other super star, at the end HE CAN BEAT THEM! 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 Orton AKA "The Viper", "The Apex Predator" or "The Legend Killer" is always be the Greatest WWE Wrestler Superstar of all but that's not all, he can also make his own new moves, he can create a logo and a new motto... "Orton Vs. Everybody".
Randy Orton also has his own leadership so he can create his own wrestling group called "The Viperville", he will assign 2 members... Baron Corbin and Finn Balor to make the group in a total of 3 members and that would a perfect combination of the group and with that, they will easily prepare to fight and destroy The Wyatt Family... Randy Orton and Baron Corbin - The WWE Smackdown Tag Team Champions and then Finn Balor - The WWE Universal Champion or The WWE NXT Champion
He's number 8 in this list guys? Really? Randy Orton is WWE Royalty, a third generation wrestling machine, the Viper, the Apex Predator and don't forget he's the Legend Killer! He has arguably the best and most recognized finishing move in all of sports entertainment and also the deadliest. He'll the RKO even has its own weekly trending hashtag #RKOFromOutaNowhere! He's the youngest World Heavyweight champion, has held both the WH and WWE championships at the same time, he's the second longest reigning Intercontinental Champion, was the best asset in Evolution, he is a two time tag team champion, and is the only superstar who will have the whole crowd cheering even when he's the top heel. Orton has beaten every single superstar that has been put in his way and when he returns he will continue to do so!
Randy Orton 12 times WWE & World Champion! Royal Rumble Winner (2009)! Mr.Money In the Bank (2013) The first superstar ever to become the WWE World Heavyweight Champion! Randy Orton had so many greatest matches and some of them were against Legends "Mick Foley, The Undertaker, Shawn Michaels etc" The first ever youngest superstar to win the World Champion in a match against Chris Benoit. He definitely belongs in this list but not in this place. In my opinion, Randall Kenneth Orton belongs in 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th place! Hopefully Randy doesn't retire in 2018 like his planning too and stays longer here at the WWE.
Edge was such an incredible Superstar. If you ever hear other WWE Wrestlers talk about Edge, they all say how he was the best performer and was great in the ring. He just knew what to do. The ring was Edge's home and he knew exactly how to please the crowd. Edge was in numerous classic matches laying his body on the line. I always loved seeing him go crazy waiting for someone to spear and then finally spearing the guts out of someone. Absolutely no one can beat Edge's spear by the way. Edge is, without a doubt in my top 3 of the best superstars of all time. Not to mention that his entrance music was the best too! Hate that he had to retire, we miss you Edge!
He is in my opinion the greatest superstar of all time. His name is in the record books that can never be replaced. He has more titles than some of the greatest of all time. He has 31 titles to his name which is more than John Cena, Triple H, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho and even Ric Flair. I loved how he was a goofball with Christian and turned into one of the greatest heel characters of all time and loved his relationship with Lita and his rivalry with John Cena. He was one of the greatest tag teams of all time with Christian. One of the greatest factions of all time with the Brood (their music was awesome). He had the most insane music that I feel is the best and had one of the greatest matches of all time both being at wrestlemania. The first wrestlemania greatest moment is Wrestlemania X7 which is one of the single greatest TLC matches in the WWE and in Wrestlemania 24 against The Undertaker
Edge is without second thought the greatest WWE WRESTLER (not Actor as John Cena, Austin, The Rock, he's in real Wrestler) of all time.
Titles, Competitions won, Accomplishments say it. Edge is the only person that have won all the basic titles and tournaments and most difficult and dangerous (that cost his career) matches ever (except for Hell In A Cell). There's no wrestling fan (especially WWE fan) on this planet to think that John Cena or Randy Orton or Triple H are more talented and charismatic wrestlers than Edge. Especially when these wrestlers I pre-refered are not even wrestlers but just actors.
If it was up to me I would place him above John Cena any day. Edge came out, week after week and put his body and life on the line despite knowing that he has a life threatening injury. He came out and gave it his everything. Not only me but many others say so. Don't mean to disrespect any other wrestler, they earned their spots on the list, but, Edge took his performance to a whole new level. He won a total of 31 championships which includes a record 7 time world heavyweight champ. He won the first MITB, a royal rumble, a king of the ring and a elimination chamber making only one of the two wrestler to accomplish all of this. He may not be as legendary as The Undertaker and Michaels but if he had more time, he certainly would have. He retired as the WHC and was inducted into the very next Hall of Fame, making him the youngest alive person (as eddie was 38 too but dead) at 38 to be inducted into the HOF. He raised the bar and it isn't for no reason that HHH and Vince want him back in ...more
Mysterio should be in the top 10. He and Eddie Guerrero made high-flying what it is today. Wrestlers such as Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr. wouldn't be as popular today without them.
The Giant Killer, The Biggest Little Man, The Masked Maestro... He is the 2 time world heavyweight champion, former WWE champion, 4 time WWE tag team champion, 3 time cruiserweight champion, 5 time WCW cruiserweight, 2 time intercontinental champion you GOT to love him...
If he's not in the top 5, I committing suicide!
Funny, when a young fellow rates the wrestlers, he seems to only notice the wrestlers from his time frame. Now ask an old fellow who's been around for many years. You can't forget wrestlers like Bruno Sammartino, Gorilla Monsoon, Haystacks Calhoun, Waldo Von Erich, Ivan Koloff, Mario Milano, Toru Tanaka and the rest of the old guys. There was no big pay per views to push them. They had to work hard to make it. I could go on and on on this subject. Since wrestling is fake, it's a difficult subject.
I like rey mysterio because he had all the abilities and skill that a WWE superstars have he is small but he can almost the wrestlers of WWE. He had beaten all superstars such as randy orton, kurtangle, kane, alberto del rio and many more. He won his first world heavy weight title at 2006 wrestle mania. When he won it was my greatest day of my life. I love him very much and want to meet him
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.
I don't hate John Cena, I don't even dislike you... What I hate is this idea that you're the Best, because you're NOT. CM Punk is the Best.
CM Punk's been the best ever since day 1, when he walked into this Company and has been Vilified and Hated because Paul Heyman saw something in him that Nobody else wanted to admit. That's right He's a Paul Heyman Guy.
He's the Best In The World.
On that Microphone, in that Ring and even at commentary Nobody can touch him.
He is the Best "Wrestler" in the World.
There's one thing that Cena's better at than CM Punk is, and that's kissing Vince McMahons ASS. I'm not sure if Cena is as good as "Dwyane"(The Rock) though he's a pretty good ASS kisser.
So pissed that this guy left WWE. CM Punk is The Best in the World. On the microphone, in the ring and even on Commentary. He accomplished the WWE Championship twice (including one of them for 434 days), the World Heavyweight Championship three times, the ECW Championship once, the Intercontinental Championship once, the World Tag Team Championship once and two Money in the Bank Briefcases. And Despite all that, he was never given the chance to headline Wrestlemania. I hope he gets more success in the UFC.
Best wrestler, who has strength to beat anyone. Look at him. He looks and his body physique is just like common man. Those people have seen matches of CM Punk VS The Undertaker at wrestlmania, Punk VS The Rock and Punk VS Brock Lesnar at Summer Slam. They all know the stamina and power of CM Punk. That was different thing. Unfortunately, He couldn't beat them but matches were awesome and extremely ddifficult and tough forr those all winners.
One unforgettable achievement of CM Punk is that.. He had defended WWE championship 434 consecutive days.
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.
Brock lesnar the most hardworking and dedicated wrestler. I mean, The Undertaker himself wanted brock lesnar to be the one to end his legendary 21-0 undefeated wrestlemania streak.
He became the youngest WWE champion, undisputed WWE champion, the king of the ring and royal rumble winner within two years of his debut.
And here are those fake wrestling fans because of whom people like John Cena, ryback, daniel bryan, etc. are the cause for so much hype. these guys are just newbies.
Brock has truly earned it all. and that's just WWE. he left WWE because he knew WWE was just fake wrestling, scripted storylines and a lot of money, which was not what he wanted.
So, he started doing mixed martial arts and became one of the UFC greats, but that's another story.
That's what I've got to say about brock. the real beast (and the current reigning unified WWE champion.
Brock lesnar is at #1 in w we since his return to w we in 2012. Last Sunday he defate CM Punk in summer slam 2013. He is the beast. All the WWE fans are mad because the don't ever know the stamina of the brock lesner. He has the stamina bigger then every wrestler. You placed taker at #1 I think all of you don't know that taker never beat him in his carrier. So I think you must change the ranking. Lesnar is #1 in the world.
The beast is the most dangerous guy ever I seen in WWE history.He is dangerous and so mad in ring so that he was suspended many times and also get suspended from Stephanie McMahon. He did not afraid of anyone because he prove himself to be the most dangerous and the real beast.He attack many times the greatest and respectable people in WWE like Mr McMahon (the father of Stephanie McMahon). Overall he is most liked person by everyone and I too! Do yOu?
Unquestionably, the greatest to ever do it. The limousine riding, jet flying, kiss stealing, wheeling deeling, son of a gun. The nature boy, ric flair. He is the man, and a sixteen time world champion! Best promos and wrestling of all time! I do not belive that there is a single wrestler on the face of the earth, who is better than ric flair
Flair, Hogan, Hart, Orton, and Austin are the best. Michaels, Cena, Edge, Punk, and Lesnar are rated too high on this list. There is absolutely no way that Michaels is the third best wrestler of all time. Third highest ego, maybe. Wrestling got a second life because of Flair and Hogan.
Flair and Hogan are to wrestling what Bird and Magic were to basketball. Flair is the best wrestler and Hogan made it the commercial success it is today. Today's wrestlers are not near as good. Some are very athletic, but just aren't the overall wrestlers of the past (with the exception of Orton and McIntyre). Cena and The Rock vastly overrated. Bret Hart and Kurt Angle are the best technical wrestlers of all time. Steve Austin and The Undertaker are the best badasses. NWO (Hogan, Hall, and Nash) and Goldberg deserve tremendous credit for turning WCW's fortunes around back in the late 90's.
Ric Flair is definitely the greatest wrestler in the history of the business. He wasn't considered high on this list because he only spent about 8 or 9 years overall in the WWE and most of that was when he was past his prime. In a career that spands 35 years, he wrestled almost every top superstar in the business and won. Names like Race, Rhodes, Steamboat, Sting, Michaels, Hogan, Savage, Mulligan, Windham, Austin, Magnum T.A., both Valentines, all Von Erichs, Undertaker, Bockwinkle, Lawler, Jericho, Guerrero, Andre the Giant, both Garvins, Backlund and many more. Also, he won 16 World Championships, 6 U.S. titles, 1 I.C. titles, and several World Tag Team Titles mainly with Valentine and Batista. Nobody did it at such a high level for so long.
Kane had the best storyline buildup to a debut more than any other gimmick in the sport of Professional Wrestling. And intentionally only being a temporary gimmick at the time, just to shock the wrestling world with his skills and physic and his hight. But the Mask played a major role in his success. Kane was not a talker, just a destroyer. Even without the mask, he showed a demented side to his persona, Destroying Raw GM Eric Bishoff, Tombstoning WWE Owner Linda Mcmahon on the steel ramp, Electrocuting Shayne Mcmahons Testicles, Setting Jim Ross on fire, just to name a few.
But Kane also has humor in different ways, like when he showed up during the Minis Matches when he had the mask. His night of destruction (which is my favourite moment of Kane), owning both The Rock and Hulk Hogan in one segment, to Anger Management where Kane was asked to tell his life story, witch everything he said was actually true laugh out loud.
But even though Kane was more of a mute with the ...more
I want the masked kane back.. That masked kane can really kick everyone's ass out of the ring.. He is the best.. After the mask went he went down so I would like to see the masked kane back in the ring with paul bearer and enter the ring and eliminate anyone who dares to stand in that ring in front of him.. He is the best and also has so many records,17 titles master of inferno matches, highest elimination in royal rumble ever, he won the ECW championship in ten seconds at wrestlemania.. WOW!
KANE undoubtedly the BEST wrestler but WWE just tried their maximum every time to ruin his Character! But back in the days of the Attitude Era he was one dominant force, a Demon, a Monster.. No one actually dominated him back then. And Prior to his Biceps Injury, He was one of the Strongest Wrestler ever to enter into the ring!
And of course Glen Jacobs (his real name) is one of the nicest guy I have ever met. So down to earth and selfless human.
KANE For LIFE! Love You!
No Superstar in WWE History has ever made quite an impact as Kane did. Easily one of the most Underrated superstars in history, and his skills for a big man explains his tallent, and from being a mute to eventually speaking the best promo's in years in 2010, His charisma is out of this world sometimes laugh out loud but that's what makes Kane, Kane. My favourite moments was not only his debut where he ripped that cage door off of the hell in a cell, But when he turned heel and Paul Bearer and Undertaker reunitited and Kane went on a full night of destruction. that's what made Kane, Kane. The Funny moments are memorable like the time he Moched Cheif Morely by doing the Val Venus thing haha, and Moching both Hulk Hogan and the Rock,
There are many memrobale moments with Kane and I will always be a Kane-a-nite for life. even if he is changed from Anger Managing to wearing a suit, History shows that Kane is very unpredictable. haha looks like the Anger Management Classes didn't work.
His ability to re-invent himself and stay relevant is second to none. He's also very slefless and the industry on the whole would be better if more people were like Chris Jericho.
This really pisses me off.. Jericho 21!? Can I remind you that he is a multi time world and WWE Champion! 9 Time Intercontinental Champion! First Undisputed Champion by beating the rock and stone cold steve austin in the same night. Chris Jericho has beaten the greats like Undertaker... Kane... CM Punk... Steve Austin... Rock... Edge... Randy Orton.. Rey Mysterio... Hell He beat Shawn Michaels on consecutive occasions in the same month including defeating him to retain the world title
Most consistent superstar who has best match of the night more than anyone here on this list. He can turn from face to heel in a split-second and nobody is questioning it cause he is so good. Top 3 superstars at the mic, cuts promos like a boss and always have a great in-ring match. Only 2 other superstars have that talent of the mic, character building and in-ring performance and that is Shawn Michaels and Rick Flair, and Jericho has gone from attitude era to PG-era and still is as relevant if not even more. Drink it in man. If you don¨t agree, then just shut the hell up!
There's a reason Christopher Irwine is the Millennium Man Chris Jericho.
Y2J's debut in the WWF was the greatest debut of all time. There have been 3 comings of Y2J which is enigmatic and what a charismatic man Jericho is!
Greatest Heel of all time. The one true Best in the World at what he does. The World is Jericho. The Illuminati is Jericho.
I don't think any list even have jeff hardy but his in my list and I will give 3 facts why he should be number 9...
1. He is one of the greatest risk takers the WWE has ever had his Swanton bomb his whisper in the wind and even his basic high flying move my point is he just isn't scared of anything.
2. Him and his brother Matt are just one of the best teams The Hardy boys I mean not better than but there my second favourite time and whats better than seeing Jeff and Matt battle ing it out!
3. I'm kind of out of reason but here is one His face paint I know you might think face paint big deal but go to Google and type Jeff hardy facepaint you will be stunned.
I couldn't believe Hardy was on #45 on "top 50 greatest superstar of all time" dvd video. He should be way higher but thank god he's on #18 on thetoptens
Jeff should be top ten! This charismatic enigma brings joy to almost every person-- his amazing extreme moves and risking his body to perform hardcore stunts. A huge risk taker and one of the sweetest wrestlers out there... His dedication to his career is admirable and what he does for the fans is lovely...he is one of the former WWE superstars that shaped the tag team division along with his brother matt and other well-known wrestlers... He started his career at a young age and look how far he has gone
Despite all his personal past mistakes because that's his life and no one should judge him he is the best... Leave the poor fellow and focus on how he has accomplished in his wrestling career rather than his personal life.
Other than being hot because trust me he is(especially when he had the storyline with trish stratus lol), jeff is a unique person with so much talent c:
Best ever in WWE. You can't fake home jumping of a 20 foot ladder through tables. He is the person in WWE that I had the strongest connection to. When he won the WWE championship his speech was so awesome. He said the title was for the rejects and screw ups. I dig that about Jeff. He shows his love for all his fans including the outcasts. Jeff Nero Hardyrules!
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...
I still have all matched of goldberg in my PC...
Goldberg... His 174th match and 1st loss was caused by a TASER. He utterly destroyed Kevin Nash, knocked two wrestlers right out of the match that tried to help out Kevin, and then got hit by a taser. He was going to win, and it was obvious, but the taser just done him in. He holds the best win/loss ratio in the wrestling industry, and no way in hell you're going to get up from two of his jackhammers, you're dead. No way in hell is ANYONE going to be able to beat him in a valid one vs one, disqualification match. None of the best wrestlers today would be able to do him in, he can take allot more damage than undertaker. Hell, The Undertaker even loss to the Big Show, and Goldberg completely and utterly annihilated him. Not many people can say they picked up Big Show, let's not even think about the jackhammering. Peace.
I have seen Goldberg in his matches and I think he should be placed #1 with The Undertaker.
He's has beaten most of the very great WWE superstars mentioned above him.
I can't believe John Cena is #2. I can accept that he's incredibly strong, but has not enough strength in him to beat goldberg because I can guarentee that he cannot kickoff goldberg's jackhammer.
Goldberg ought to be #1 with taker because no great superstar including the rock can become a fan favorite like him.
Goldberg, simply put, is the best. There's not one wrestler who is purely more dominant than him! He does the best spear the business has ever seen. His ability to hold his opponent above his head before he says them down with the Jackhammer is unprecedented!
If I'm correct he's only been beaten five times. If that doesn't make you saw "Best Wrestler Ever! " then you're crazy. He went 173-0 on WCW and was undefeated on Raw! Goldberg deserves to be number one!
Ultimate Warrior had won the title 4 times and he didn't use as much steroids as all the other wrestlers did. Plus he beat all the greats including Undertaker, Hulk Hogan, Andre The Giant, Terry Funk, Rowdy Roddy Piper, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels, and I could go on even longer! Plus he was one of the first greats. He basically ruled the late 80's to the late 90's.
Legend pure and simple. Yes he was all clotheslines and shoulder blocks and 2 minute squash matches but that was what the persona was, what would have been the point in being the Ultimate Warrior if it had been 20 minute matches every time. The most entertaining "wrestler" that I have ever watched. RIP Mr Warrior.
People forget how popular the Warrior was. He is the only guy on this list that was a pure cartoon bigger than life character. His energy was unmatched and when you hear his music you feel that power. When he died, just look at the reaction. His character was beyond loved.
26? This guy was the first man to kick out of a Tombstone, never tapped out, no selled a Pedigree, beat Hulk Hogan, one of the first men to have an Intercontanal Championship and the WWF title, and lots more! And Cena number 2? He tapped 4 times! Angle 2 times, Y2J, And Benoit. This guy... Top 5 no doubt about it!
24? That's so low for the guy who is the only wrestler to win a gold medal at the olympics, with a broken neck. Nobody else could do that if they tried. Kurt is a top 10 and one of the best performers and makes so many matches like vs Shawn Michaels at WM 21 and vs Stone Cold at SS 2001. He deserves a lot more credit cause he is way better than Brock Leanar, Goldberg, CM Punk, Randy Orton and Batista. Give him more respect please, he is amazing!
One of the funniest most entertaining takers in history; face of heel. But his wrestling ability is world class, and he can have good matches with anyone. He is the only wrestler to have a good match with with Brock Lesnar without the need of blood. He is one of the very few wrestlers that can have a great match without needing blood. But he can also bleed.
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.
Kurt Angle should be higher than Kane, CM Punk, Rey Mysterio and Batista. Kurt Angle is a champion, including his Olympic gold medal champion. Kurt Angle should be in the top ten or higher. He is amazing and has been in some of the best matches of all time, even if he won or not. Kurt Angle is the Goat.
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 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.
Savage was such a colorful and entertaining wrestler. He could be a face or heel an fans still loved him. His ability to adapt to any style of wrestling made him special.
Not only was he great as a wrestler, he was much more entertaining watch. He kept you on the edge of your seat in every match, and he kept you laughing in every interview
The man that cared about the fans,his fellow wrestlers, and the business more than himself. A lot of the guys on the list wouldn't be where they are if guys like Mick Foley weren't there to put them over and look good.
A person who has always put his body on the line every Monday Night.
The reason he should be on one?
1. He has been thrown off the cell and then he was thrown through the cell and later chokeslammed right on the thumbtacks. Undertaker vs Mankind King of the Ring '98
2. He had taken 10 chairshots just to have the WWF Title. Royal Rumble '99
3. He has always put his body on the line every Monday night. He explains his actions by saying,"The viewers give all their hard earned money to see the show. If they don't get what they deserve. I won't be able to look at myself in the mirror." These words show he love that he had for the business.
4. Cactus Jack. <- This word explains it all. He has had one of the greatest hardcore matches in the history of Professional Wrestling.
This guy has made me love me ever since I watched King of the Ring '98 on YouTube.
Foley is GOD.
Have a nice day this dude was great, it would be funny if they had mankind, cactus jack, and dude love as option to vote for separately
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 greatest superstars in smackdown! History. He is a
A one time wwe champion, 1 time united states champion, 4 time wwe tag team champion, 2 time european champion, 2 time intercontinental champion. He also won other championships during his time wrestling in other companies such as wcw, ecw, and A. Without any doubt this legendary Hall of Famer is one of the greatest wrestlers in WWE History.
Eddie should at least be #9. He is probably the only wrestler in history who had a ring instead of a trampoline in his backyard. And your saying that daniel bryan is better than him? No way. His ability to wrestle are out of this world. I miss Eddie so much. Thank you latino heat.
The most passionate wrestler to ever embrace the brand... One of the most technical wrestlers with the best personality... love you Eddie. My thoughts will always be with you. Rest in Peace Latino Heat! VIVA LA RAZA!
I had the biggest crush on him over 5 years ago, and he is special because he was the very first guy I ever had a huge over-whelming crush on! He'll always be that first guy, and nothing anyone can do will change that.
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!
Batista should be the number2 because.
1-Batista and John Cena were the last two superstar in the ring at royal rumble 2005 and batista eliminated John Cena to won the royal rumble 2005.
2-Batista beats John Cena at the 2008 Summerslam.
3-Batista Beats Triple h three times in consecution, all of them were for the world title.
3-Batista Beats shawn micheals In a stretcher match and much more.
4-You guys know that rey misterio cannot be in Batista's pole.
This is how the top 10 need to be.
3-The Ultimate Warrior
7-The Animal Dave Batista
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
Batista is obviously the best. You can't see it by his statistics, but you would know if you just watched him compete in the ring. No one comes out of that ring without a broken bone, and batista never goes dow without a fight. He HAS beaten mostly everyone, like undertaker, cena, orton, edge, benoit, etc. He is also all pro on the mic, probably the greatest
There is no one who defeated the opponent like Andre did. Every time he toyed with his opponent, drawing out the pain to please the audience. Never has one gone before who has been so great. We should never forget about this giant. Even his last match with Hulk Hogan was pre-arranged that Andre would purposely loose. Andre was undefeatable and feared by all in the ring. He should definitely be in the top 10, if not #1! Such a great man!
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.
Most people don't remember him because it's been about 25 years since he wrestled. As big and strong as he was, he would have been nearly unstoppable today. The Big Show is a joke, compared to Andre.
He was so awesome that no one even wanted to be in the same ring with him. He was so huge that nobody could defeat him honestly. People didn't want to wrestle him, they ran away from him.
