The following list takes everything into account that a pro wrestler had done. This list concerns itself with seeking to understand who truly are the top ten wrestlers of all time.

Their ability to generate revenue as well as appearing on high profile matches was all taken into consideration.

Throughout the years we have seen all types of wrestlers in WWE. There have been different styles as well depending on the creative direction of the company during that particular time.

This list will try to make everything come together in a way in which we can finally reveal the top 10 superstars of all time.

I will admit I thought of Chris Benoit when making this list based on his wrestling talent, but due to his actions I do not feel right in including him.

I do believe that he has a place in wrestling history but I could not include him in my top ten list based on the final moments of his life. Having said that, my sympathies go out to anyone who suffered a loss due to that horrific incident.

10. Trish Stratus

Trish Stratus lit the world of fire during her tenure with WWE. Not only did she become the women’s champion on various occasions, but her feuds with Victoria and Lita are some of the greatest wrestling feuds of all time.

Trish Stratus has proven through her great in-ring work and promo ability that she is one of the top ten of all time.

9. Eddie Guerrero

Eddie Guerrero came from the world of Lucha Libre to establish himself as the top performer in WWE by winning the title from Brock Lesnar.

If ever an underdog has risen, it has to be this man. His work in WCW was amazing in that it showcased the abilities of the cruiserweight division.

His comedic timing and athletic ability took his career to new heights in WWE. It is hard not to love this man as a entertainer.

For opening the door up for Luchadors like Rey Mysterio to winning the world title, Eddie deserves to be on the best wrestlers of all time list.

8. RVD

Easily one of the most athletic superstars of all time. He not only captured two world titles at the same time but he changed the landscape of WWE.

He made it possible for the WWE champion whom at the time was John Cena to have to wrestle in the original ECW Arena.

Further cementing his legendary status, he managed to defeat Cena on RVD’s home turf. It would be impossible to make this list without the inclusion of “Mr Monday Night” RVD!

7. Owen Hart

Enough words cannot be said about this man. He was not only perhaps the most consistent worker in WWE but he helped a lot of people reach their potentials in the wrestling business.

Without Owen, the legend of Stone Cold would not be as big. Lets all face it, when Owen was in a tag team he made that division relevant. Also let’s not forget his classic matches with his brother Bret.

If there is any doubt, pop in an old Owen Hart match and watch the master at work. The wrestling world loves you, brotha!

6.Triple  HHH

This man has won the WWE title nearly as many times as Ric Flair. He was also instrumental in the Monday night wars thanks to his involvement with DX.

The Game also has a tendency to headline WrestleMania. He might be controversial at times, but when it comes down to it, HHH deserves to be on this list.

5. The Rock

The Rock has to be considered one of the greatest workers of all time. His promos could be considered the best.

It’s also important to note that his work rate in the ring has always been very high. Even after long periods of not wrestling, when he has returned, it seems he never loses a step inside the squared circle.

His match at Mania against Hogan had an epic feel to him, and it did feel that the torch was passed. I bet if he had stayed in wrestling, this man would be at the No. 1 list of many wrestling historians.

4. Shawn Michaels

HBK has been one of the top superstars since he started with WWE. He has also been extremely loyal.

Every one of his matches appears to be like a highlight reel and it is hard to tell if he has slowed down at all.

He was in the first Iron Man match against Bret Hart and also in the first Hell in a Cell match with Undertaker.

His latest masterpiece at WrestleMania 25 further cements the fact that HBK is a icon like no other.

3. Ric Flair

Whoooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This man has won the world title more times than wrestling historians can keep track of.

He is a legend whose career has been watched by millions of adoring fans. His work in NWA, WCW, and WWE is nothing short of perfection.

Thinking back to the Four Horsemen and their popularity in the sport, it is not far-fetched to throw this guy into the No. 1 spot of any list.

His WWE retirement match with HBK was amazing and one can only think that this man will never stop wrestling.

2. Bret Hart

His historic story has no limits. He has held just about every championship title in existence. One can only think that with his return to WWE that the legend will only continue.

Either way you look at it, his ability to tell a story in the ring is surpassed by no one. He has proved through his feud with just about every top superstar of yesterday and today that he is ” the best there is was and ever will be.”

If you don’t believe your humble writer, just go check out the iron man match between HBK and him at Wrestlemania XII.

I believe he deserves this top spot due to his ability to start a feud between Canadian and American wrestling fans; this is nothing short of legendary.

1. Hulk Hogan

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.
