Ranker – combined with their readers – have worked together to create their latest ranking system of superstars.
This time, the site has put together their top 50 WWE wrestlers of the 21st century.
This list is not overruling and will feature some surprises that you may disagree with, especially when we get down to the nitty gritty of the top 10.
The site claims that the scoring has been inspired by the DVD, the ‘Greatest Stars of the New Millennium’.
So, whether you completely agree or are left in outrage, here is the list of the top 50 WWE wrestlers of the 21st century.
- WWE fans have their say on the GOAT
- Top 5 moments from the Ruthless Aggression Era
- John Cena to choose own WrestleMania opponent
50. Gail Kim
47. Mickie James
46. The Miz
45. Cody Rhodes
44. Mark Henry
41. Becky Lynch
40. Dolph Ziggler
38. Matt Hardy
37. Sasha Banks
36. Booker T
34. Kofi Kingston
33. Finn Balor
32. Chris Benoit
There are a few surprises here to say the least.
You might be shocked to learn that the 'world’s strongest man' Mark Henry appears as low as 44.
Half of the infamous Hardy brothers finds himself in 38th place, just a couple of places above the ever-entertaining Goldust. Anyone who is able to wear a latex suit like that for as long as him at least deserves a place in this top 50.
There is a spot too for Kofi Kingston, currently in his fourth reign as SmackDown Tag Team Champion.
30. AJ Lee
28. Roman Reigns
27. Dean Ambrose
26. AJ Styles
25. Ric Flair
24. Mick Foley
23. Big Show
22. Rob Van Dam
21. Hulk Hogan
20. Seth Rollins
19. Trish Stratus
17. Rey Mysterio
16. Jeff Hardy
15. CM Punk
14. Chris Jericho
12. Kurt Angle
11. Randy Orton
As we reach the highly anticipated top 10, there might be quite a few names that fans may feel have come rather prematurely.
It would seem that legends of the past such as Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan have had their name’s and status deteriorate over time.
Plus, there is no place in the top 10 for the likes of Chris Jericho, CM Punk, Kane and Randy Orton, who came closer than anybody to breaking into the elite 10.
The Viper could be set to go toe-to-toe with Edge, who is placed just two spots behind him.
10. Brock Lesnar
9. Eddie Guerrero
6. Triple H
5. Daniel Bryan
4. Shawn Michaels
3. The Undertaker
2. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
1. John Cena
So, there it is. You CAN see John Cena at number one, crowning him the best wrestler of the 21st century.
Batista, The Rock and Cena are all killing it in the film industry at the moment and have too all been included inside the prestigious top 10.
The Undertaker’s WrestleMania legacy will live long in the memory and has earned him a spot in the top three.
It is hard to argue against Cena. He has the most world-title reigns in the history of the WWE (16).News Now - Sport News
