Undertaker, John Cena, The Rock, Hulk Hogan: WWE’s 25 greatest champions revealed

Who Is The Greatest WWE Champion

Since the WWE started, we’ve seen a range of different champions and a whole host of different titles for the Superstars to win.

When you get to see your favourite Superstar come out on top in a title match, it is a great feeling for any WWE fan, with little coming close to compare.

But that begs the question, who is the greatest WWE champions of all time? The Top Tens have allowed fans to vote on the topic, with the top 25 now revealed…

25. Daniel Bryan

24. Sheamus

23. Diesel

22. Rey Mysterio

21. Roman Reigns

20. Mankind

19. Jeff Hardy

18. The Miz

17. Pedro Morales

16. Edge

15. Ric Flair

14. Randy Savage

13. Brock Lesnar

12. Bob Backlund

11. Bret Hart

10. Randy Orton

Randy Orton is a huge name in the WWE and has a plethora of title triumphs to his name. Love him or hate him, there’s no denying his success for the brand, nor can you really argue his place on this list.

9. Shawn Michaels

When you compile any list of the ‘greatest’ athletes in any manner, Shawn Michaels will surely be involved. The Heartbreak Kid was known for his WrestleMania performances, showing us he was a GOAT on the big stage and a top 10 champion for sure.

8. CM Punk

CM Punk’s title matches will always live long in the memory of WWE fans, holding the WWE championship for well over a year to prove his worth and why he’s a great champion.

7. Triple H

The Game was always one of the most feared men in the ring and will go down as one of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Like the majority of the top 10, he won titles for fun during his career and is now calling the title shots as Head of Creative.

6. Bruno Sammartino

The late, great Bruno Sammartino is the oldest name in the top 10, having two title reigns that accumulated 4,040 days, that’s simply unreal and more than most great champions combined!

5. Stone Cold Steve Austin

Stone Cold Steve Austin, the leader of the attitude era, makes the top five according to fans. Few could match his pull, meaning he was a shoe in for this list, but only seeing him fifth means some pretty big names remain.

4. The Undertaker

The Undertaker is one of the most renowned Superstars of all time and is one of the best, if not the best to ever step foot in the ring. With a 21 match winning streak at WrestleMania and with high profile wins over the other top Superstars, beating them fair and square, The Phenom rightly takes up a place on this list.

3. Hulk Hogan

Having arguably the biggest draw out of any Superstar from any era, Hulk Hogan takes his place on the podium. He was a six-time WWE champion, totalling 2,185 of reign. He was a pop culture icon, taking WWE to new heights in the 1980s.

2. The Rock

Just missing out on top spot is The Rock. He became the youngest WWE Champion at the time and was the first man to amass seven titles. A legendary figure in the ring, The Rock full deserves a place on the podium.

1. John Cena

When you say WWE, most will think ‘John Cena’ given his dominant spell at the top of the organisation, being the headline Superstar for most of his career. Few have more days amassed in total as a champion in the organisation than John Cena, who similarly to Hulk Hogan, has been a key reason in the exponential growth of the WWE.
