One question that is continually asked and debated between WWE fans is who the strongest wrestler is, and although it’s subjective, the debate can get heated.
Having a ripped body and being strong are both excellent qualities for a wrestler. CEO of WWE Vince McMahon has shown preference to powerhouses over the years.
There is no doubt that strength is a pivotal factor to wrestling success seeing as it is responsible for all pulling movements when inside the ring – it also helps with balance.
It is no surprise to see The Undertaker creep into the top five. Despite not looking the most hench when it comes to some Superstars, his ability to complete his signature moves on heavier opponents was evidence of his brute strength. These opponents included Big Van Vader, Yokozuna, Great Khali and Mark Henry.
Speaking of Mark Henry, he is known as The World’s Strongest Man in WWE, so I don’t think anything else needs to be said – he has broken records in both weightlifting and powerlifting. The combination of his lifting and wrestling sees him take fourth place.
One of the most aesthetically pleasing figures in WWE history is Bill Goldberg. Based on physical appearance alone, he sits comfortably on this list. Seeing as his record was once 173-0, his strength was second to none.
During his WWE tenure, Lesnar managed to lift stars from Big Show to Mark Henry, showing his strength is first class.
John Cena may not be the most ripped from the list, but don’t let that dispute the fact that he swung Big Show and Edge at the same time at WrestleMania 25 – this is a combined weight of more than 778lbs.
Whether it’s a muscular physique, based on weight or pure towering size, The Top Ten have ranked the strongest WWE wrestlers of all time, and here are the top 15.
