Wrestling has been a popular sport for centuries and has produced some of the most iconic and memorable athletes the world has ever seen. But who are the greatest wrestlers of all time? This is a question that has been debated by fans and experts for years, and the answer is far from clear-cut. However, there are a few names that stand out as true legends of the sport. In this article, we’ll take a look at the top 7 greatest wrestlers of all time; those who have left an indelible mark on the industry and who continue to inspire new generations of fans. So, let’s step into the ring and see who makes the cut!
Hulk Hogan is a wrestler, retired from the ring but still very much active in the world of professional wrestling. He was one of the most popular wrestlers during his time with World Wrestling Federation (now WWE). Hulk Hogan has held many titles in his career, including: WWF Champion (4 times), WCW Champion (3 times), and WCW Television Championship (2 times).
Andre the Giant
Andre the Giant was a French professional wrestler, who was best known for his iconic size. He was billed as 7 feet 2 inches and 505 pounds (230 kg). Andre’s career spanned from 1954 until 1993, during which time he held several championships in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW). He also wrestled extensively in Japan during this time period; most of his appearances were on the same card as Hulk Hogan or another member of the WWE roster.
As part of WCW’s “War Games” event series, Andre teamed up with Hulk Hogan against Vader and Sid Vicious at Halloween Havoc 1994 to crown new champions for both companies simultaneously. This became one of the biggest matches ever seen outside of WWE when it aired live on pay-per-view television later that year; however it would not lead to any further championship opportunities beyond this event since neither man could emerge victorious since their respective partners suffered injuries during their match which prevented them from competing again.
John Cena is a wrestler is one of the most popular wrestlers in the world, with an estimated 2 billion YouTube views, and 17 million Twitter followers. He’s won 11 WWE Championships (the company’s top title), two World Heavyweight Championships, three Royal Rumbles (the company’s biggest event), and four Money In The Bank ladder matches to earn his spot as the greatest all-around performer in wrestling history.
Stone Cold Steve Austin
Steve Austin, better known by his ring name, Stone Cold, is a retired professional wrestler. He is best known for his work in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), where he was a two-time WWF Champion and one-time WCW Champion. In addition to these championships, he holds several other records: he has headlined WrestleMania XIX twice, headlined five pay-per-view events at WrestleMania, and won both Royal Rumble matches (1997 and 1999).
Austin also wrestled in other promotions such as Pro Wrestling Noah, Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling.
The Rock is a wrestler, movie star and rapper. He has also been known to be an actor and comedian but we will focus on his wrestling career here.
He began his career in the late 90s with Dwayne Johnson acting under his real name at WCW Monday Nitro where he was known as “The Great One.” The Rock would go on to win multiple titles including the WWE Championship three times (as well as being inducted into it’s Hall of Fame in 2009), while also winning other prestigious titles such as World Heavyweight Champion five times and Hardcore Champion twice more.
You may know him as the Undertaker, or simply The Undertaker. He’s a member of the WWE and has been wrestling since 1990.
He’s known for his signature move—the “ace crusher”—which involves him combining two moves into one by lifting a wrestler up off the ground with one arm, then hitting them in the back with an elbow drop followed by a choke hold that causes their neck to snap back violently before allowing them to fall forward onto their face (which is what makes it so powerful).
In addition to being able to execute this move well, he also has a number of other impressive feats under his belt: He was once dubbed “the Phenom” by WCW head Vince McMahon due to his ability to defeat opponents at will; he held titles across multiple promotions such as WWF/E/WCW/RAW; he holds five different championships at once (WWF Title/World Heavyweight Championship/European Championship); he was inducted into WWE Hall of Fame in 2005 along with Hulk Hogan.
Brock Lesnar is a professional wrestler. He is a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, and he also won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship once.
Brock has been known for his large frame and strong wrestling skills in the ring, but he has also been known for his extremely violent nature when it comes to competition. In one instance where he lost his title to Randy Orton at Wrestlemania XXVII, he injured several wrestlers on their way back from ringside after losing the match—including Triple H!
