Many of you must be thinking, isn’t Dwayne Johnson an actor? I am here to tell you that before his acting career even began, Dwayne Johnson was a well-known personality in the field of wrestling. You could feel the crowd roaring in the stadium when he entered the ring. His wrestling skills were like nobody else’s making him one of the top wrestlers in world history.

Also known as the Heartbreak King, Sean Michaels made his first appearance in the ring in 1988.

Everyone in the wrestling circle was well aware of his rivalry with Bret Hart, which is still talked about. He took part in a huge number of WrestleMania matches, so much so that he came to be known as “Mr. Wrestlemania”. There is no denying that his contribution in the wrestling field has been extravagant.


5. Ric Flair:

Starting out his wrestling career in the year 1972, this wrestler looked like no other in the ring. He brought a completely different style and aura whenever he came to wrestle. He was also much older than all the other wrestlers. He quit wrestling very recently and is now 72 years old. He managed to secure 16 titles to his name and is passing his wrestling legacy onto his daughter Charlotte. People will always remember him by his signature last move ‘The Figure Four’. 



6. Bret Hart:

Also known as ‘The Hitman’ , Bret Hart was a showstopper in the ring. He made his first appearance in 1976 and left a lasting impact on the wrestling audience. Him along with his brother-in-law Jim Neidhart  were one of the most respected names in this field as they were a part of the Hart Foundation. He won the WCW World Heavyweight Championship twice and the WWF Championship a whopping 5 times. His finishing move called the Sharpshooter used to leave the crowd cheering loudly. 


7. Randy Savage:

‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage didn’t only have big muscles, but also a big personality. Making his wrestling debut in November 1973, Randy Savage left an impression quite different from the wrestlers. She was extremely charismatic and had the ability to charm the audience with his words, even though his moves stood out for themselves. He has fought some of the most memorable matches that wrestling fans remember like the back of their hand.



8. Roddy Piper:

‘Rowdy’ Rider Piper did not start out as a wrestler in this field. But instead, he was a manager of another famous wrestler before he made his way into the ring. His personality was to die for; the audience loved seeing him talk more than they loved seeing him fight. But that does not mean that he was any less of a fighter. His iconic finishing move “Sleeper Hold” is still a core memory for many wrestling fans. 


9. Sting:

An icon, a legend, the very best Sting. This man was a wrestler for four decades and retired in the year 2024 itself. Even though he is not as popular, the way he fought in the ring was extraordinary to say the least. He presented himself way differently. His face paint era truly made him stand out from the crowd. He has many winning tournaments in his name, and for those who know, he will always remain legendary in their hearts. 



10. Chris Jericho:

Starting his wrestling career in 1990, Chris Jericho didn’t always have it easy. Even though he was talented, he had a hard time competing with the top wrestlers in the business. But his hard work eventually paid off, and he became one of the most well known wrestlers in the world. He is a true example of how hard work and perseverance makes you reach new heights.
