21 Of The Best WWE Wrestlers Of All Time

21 Of The Best WWE Wrestlers Of All Time

Seems weird that a girl is writing this, right?  Not really.  I was born and raised in Stamford and as you probably know, it’s the home to the WWE.  (Or as I knew it as a child, the WWF- Screw those animal people for robbing us of our name.)  Anyway, being a lifelong Connecticut resident, I feel like you had to be a wrestling fan at some point.  It’s our home state pride after all.  I was no exception.  I had pictures of Bret “The Hitman” Hart covering my locker in high school.  I was pumped every time I got to go to a Monday Night Raw event.  As I grew older, my love for wrestling fell to the side.  With the passing of The Ultimate Warrior last week, it brought back many memories.  My grandfather never spoke any English, but I remember how his face would light up when The Ultimate Warrior would sprint into the ring.  Wrestling didn’t know any language, it was all about the theatrics- and it’s the one thing my siblings and I could watch with him and we were all on the same page.  Through careful research (that’s a lie, this is based solely on who I believe to be the best of all time) I’ve compiled a list of the greatest men who have ever entered the ring.  Please keep in mind that these fighters are in no particular order.  Question is, did I forget any?  Add them in the comments section.

    The
    writer seemed confused. She used the word “fighter” and put John Cena
    in there (probably to avoid angry fan girls/kids). Also…why top 21?
    Why not 20? or 25? Anyways she missed: Iceman Dean Malenko, Chris Benoit
    (yes, he killed his family, get over it, we’re talking about him as a
    wrestler, not a human being), Eddie Guerrero, CM Punk (unlike Cena, he
    doesn’t get boring as shit in the ring). Rob Van Dam, KURT ANGLE. Who
    the hell writes a best wrestler list without Kurt Angle??????. Hell,
    doesn’t anyone remember Bobby Lashley? Thinking of it, so much wasted
    potential for big stars because of bad gimmicks. Talking about: Charlie
    Haas, Shelton Benjamin, Dean Malenko (WWE’s stupid use of him),
    Christian, Ultimo Dragon, Rey Mysterio (basically doomed to Mid card
    because of his size, only got the belt in Eddie’s wake because of how
    close they were).

    Good grief Zaps, everyone knows “The Living Legend” Bruno Sammartino is the greatest in the squared circle.
