WWE news: The 50 greatest WWE stars of the 21st century have been named

WrestleMania 29 Press Conference

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.


50. Gail Kim

49. Asuka

48. Chyna

47. Mickie James

46. The Miz

45. Cody Rhodes

44. Mark Henry

43. Goldust

36. Booker T

35. Cesaro

34. Kofi Kingston

33. Finn Balor

32. Chris Benoit

31. Lita

50-31 Summary

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

29. Paige

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

18. Kane

17. Rey Mysterio

16. Jeff Hardy

15. CM Punk

14. Chris Jericho

13. Edge

12. Kurt Angle

11. Randy Orton

30-11 Summary

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

8. Batista

7. Goldberg

6. Triple H

5. Daniel Bryan

4. Shawn Michaels

3. The Undertaker

2. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

1. John Cena

10-1 Summary

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).
