The Greatest Pro Wrestlers Of All Time
In making the list of the greatest pro wrestlers of all time, there were numerous backlashes and recollections that I experienced. Moreover, I also stumbled to the question that what special these people had in them that made them different from all others around them. One thing is for ssure here that the famous pro wrestlers I would be sharing with you below did go that extra mile in terms of making a huge fan following for themselves. In all, entertainment is the thing they did best and will always be remembered for that in our hearts. You might also agree with me on the fact that these individuals also happen to be the toughest of all the professional fighters in the world. Whether it be the inside ring combat or the outside game, they remain unparalleled and unmatched. I have also kept in mind the positive reviews and their numbers of fans while making this ranking. Here is the list of the 5 greatest pro wrestlers of all time.
5. The Rock
So what is the rock cooking these days? Although he has almost put an end to his wrestling career, but still there is no end to his millions and millions of fans all over the world. The reason for which he has been included in his list lies in his 17 championship reigns. He has also managed to be the world heavyweight champion 10 times.
4. Stone Cold Steve Austin
On number 4 we have the stunner, Stone Cold Steve Austin. He had been described and applauded by Vince McMahon as the most profitable and successful actor in his history of wrestling. In addition being a 6 times WWF Champion, he has held around 25 championships in the course of his career. Although the fans wanted to see more of him, but he was forced to retire in the 2003 due to a debilitating injury.
3. Brock Lesnar
Now here I have the most controversial name in this list. Most of you might never agree with me on this, but no matter what people say about this man, Brock Lesnar is the most powerful, dangerous and unmatched actor in the history of the sport. His matches with Kurt Angle and with Bill Goldberg are an open testament to his matchless abilities and power. Swinging the Big Show like a pillow in his finishing move “F5” was not a big deal for him. He has also held the WWE Championship 3 times. During his wrestling career in Japan, he managed to win the IWGP Heavyweight Championship without a sweat in his first match.
2. Bret Hart
Bret Hart has the right to be called as the founder of technical wrestling. He has held a number of championships in many decades. With a total of 32 championship, he was also the most popular in the world in the 1990s. Moreover, in the same period he had held the WWF Championship for about 654 days which is a record. That’s not all, as he is also the only wrestler to be a 2 time King of the Ring in the history of WWE.
1. The Undertaker
The real name of The Undertaker is Mark William Callaway. He is linked to a number of specialty matches, including the one known as the casket match. Other famous matches include the burying alive match, Hell in a Cell and some more. He holds the record for being unbeatable in the history of the Wrestle Mania matches. Another achievement of Undertaker was that he did not even lose a single match between the years 1991 to 1993. He is a 8 times world champion and the toughest professional wrestler in this history of wrestling.
