The Undertaker has pretty much become synonymous with WWE for his 30-year career with the company. Throughout his time wrestling for WWE, he has won 17 championships, including four WWE Championships and three World Heavyweight Championships. He’s also headlined five Wrestlemania events, being undefeated through 21 of them before losing to Brock Lesnar at Wrestlemania XXX.
Love him or hate him, you can’t deny the abilities of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. While he may be quite the respected actor now, he got his career start by competing for WWE in 1996. At that time, he was promoted as being the company’s first third-generation wrestler in history, being the son of Rocky Johnson and grandson of Peter Maivia. He moved on from that, becoming The Rock primarily thanks to his ability to talk trash and back it up in the ring with exciting matches. His bouts with Triple H were some of the best in the company’s history, and he went on to become WWE’s sixth triple crown winner.
Generally speaking, the Hart family as a whole could very much be considered greats of the WWE, although Bret “The Hitman” Hart became quite the major international draw for the company. He has been credited with helping to change the perception of mainstream professional wrestling as part of the WWE in the 90s, bringing technical in-ring prowess to the forefront of his matches. With brother Owen (RIP) becoming a decorated wrestler in himself, brother-in-laws Jim Neidhart and Davey Boy Smith taking on a successful careers, and niece Natalya currently competing for WWE, Bret has quite the lineage and family standing.
It’s hard to put Bret Hart and Shawn Michaels in one and the same list without thinking of the ‘Montreal Screwjob’ of 1997, but both are greats of the WWE. Michaels wrestled consistently for the company from 1988 through to 1998, when a back injury forced him into his first retirement. He resumed his career in 2002 with WWE, but then properly retired in 2010. His Wrestlemania XXIV match against Ric Flair will go down as one of the most emotional contests to ever take place. Michaels is also responsible for being one of the co-leaders of one of the most popular stables in WWE history – Degeneration X. It’s doubtless that The Heartbreak Kid’s in-ring skills will live on in people’s memories for a long time.
