Over the years, the WWE has had a number of superstars. A few have achieved greater success than others. Every fan of professional wrestling has an opinion regarding who the best wrestlers of all time are.
A great wrestler possesses a great deal of athleticism, charm, and ability to communicate with spectators; these qualities are just as important to their professional success as title reigns.
Let’s travel back in time and examine the remarkable careers of these icons that permanently altered the WWE business.
1. The Undertaker
“The Phenom” The Undertaker, who has dominated the wrestling business for almost thirty years, is the greatest wrestler of all time. Regarded as the best in every way, The Undertaker has gained admiration from people all over the world for his famous involvement in the professional wrestling business.
Undertaker is considered the greatest WWE superstar of all time because of his terrifying characterisation, mind games, supernatural skills, undead demeanor, and dark narrative.
2. Shawn Michaels
Though a number of WWE players have become more famous due to their amazing portrayals, Shawn Michaels remains the greatest in-ring performer in the history of this business.
Being the first-ever WWF Grand Slam Champion, he is the only superstar to have won the Royal Rumble twice.
The fact that so many of Shawn Michaels’ matches are remembered as timeless masterpieces is the only evidence that he was anything more than a wrestling machine and the Show-Stopper.
3. The Rock
In the world of professional wrestling, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is the most well-known celebrity. The Rock is the first celebrity in history to have dominated and delighted audiences in the professional wrestling business.
The Rock is well-known for his captivating demeanor, amazing physique and wrestling technique, and flawless storytelling. The Rock’s ability to connect with the crowd and have unwavering mic abilities has always been a terrific advantage.
He is now without a doubt the best wrestler in the business because to his protracted rivalry with McMahon and Stone Cold Steve Austin. The Rock rarely appeared in the wrestling ring since he began his acting career. With the largest global fan base, he is currently the biggest Hollywood celebrity.
4. John Cena

5. Stone Cold
Steve Austin is without a doubt the most respected and well-known superstar in the history of the professional wrestling industry. His anti-establishment rebel persona is undoubtedly the greatest wrestling gimmick.
Perhaps the most successful performer of the Attitude Era, Stone Cold beat the odds and waged a war with the company chairman that was too entertaining to ignore.

The Nature Boy, One of the most famous faces in wrestling, Ric Flair’s career is still developing. Ric Flair stopped wrestling very recently, even at the age of 74. In his final match, Flair wrestled for AEW after declaring his retirement once more.
But during his career, he had a number of memorable “final” bouts that cemented his reputation as the greatest performer of all time.
Part of the reason Flair is regarded as the greatest wrestler of all time is his longevity.
After making his WWE debut in 1997, the Ultimate Opportunist gained popularity right away and won several awards in his early career.
Numerous WWE fans were moved by the 44-year-old’s technical prowess, which further cemented his reputation as one of the finest in the business.
With eleven world championship reigns and an astounding 31 titles under his belt, the Rated-R Superstar has solidified his place as one of the best in the organization.
