WWE: Top 15 Most Decorated Superstars of All Time

1 of 16

    When it comes to deciding who the greatest WWE superstar is, everyone has their personal preferences.

    If you're on the Shawn Michaels train, you cite his big-match ability we've seen so often. Maybe you back up Bret Hart and his unmatched technical skills in the ring. Or perhaps you go a little outside the box and side with Hulk Hogan and his tremendous impact on the industry as a whole.

    Regardless of your opinion, it's a debate that has no end in sight.

    But what about the most successful superstar in history? Who, measured by his respective titles and accolades, is the most decorated individual?

    Here's a list of not necessarily the greatest, but the most decorated WWE Superstars of all time.

    (Logos, belts and superstar images derived from WWE.)

15. Rey Mysterio

2 of 16

    WWE Champion (One time)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Two times)

    Intercontinental Champion (Two times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (Four times)

    Cruiserweight Champion (Three times)

    Royal Rumble Winner (2006)

    Four WrestleMania wins (21, 22, XXV, XXVI)

    We'll kick off this list with a guy you may have forgotten about...Rey Mysterio.

    Mysterio, currently working his way back from injury, has developed into a huge crowd favorite over spending a near decade in the WWE. 

    He was World Heavyweight Champion twice, Intercontinental Champion twice and WWE Champion, although it lasted less than two hours.

14. Randy Orton

3 of 16

    WWE Champion (Six times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Three times)

    Intercontinental Champion (One time)

    World Tag Team Champion (One time)

    Royal Rumble Winner (2009)

    Four WrestleMania wins (XX, XXIV, XXVI, XXVII)

    Randy Orton has accomplished quite a lot in his 10-year WWE career. That's right, it's been 10 years. (Does that make you feel old?)

    Anyway, The Viper has seen his fair share of success in the company. But after yet another drug suspension, will we even see Orton in a WWE ring again? Will that resume above remain as is?

13. Big Show

4 of 16

    WWE Champion (Two times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (One time)

    ECW World Heavyweight Champion (One time)

    Intercontinental Champion (One time)

    World Tag Team Champion (Five times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (Three times)

    Hardcore Champion (Three times)

    United States Champion (One time)

    Four WrestleMania wins (22, XXVI, XXVII, XXVIII)

    While most fans are trying to push Big Show out the door, it looks as if we're in for the exact opposite. But current storylines aside, there's no questioning the validity of Show's career work in the company.

12. Jeff Hardy

5 of 16

    WWE Champion (One time)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Two times)

    World Tag Team Champion (Six times)

    WCW Tag Team Champion (One time)

    Intercontinental Champion (Four times)

    European Champion (One time)

    Hardcore Champion (Three times)

    Light Heavyweight Champion (One time)

    He could be one of the most disappointing WWE superstars of all-time, but Jeff Hardy's title history should be enough to get him on the list.

    Sure, he hasn't won a King of the Ring, Royal Rumble or Money in the Bank match. He hasn't even picked up a victory in multiple WrestleMania attempts.

    His long resume of championships, however, is what makes his WWE career considerably impressive.

11. Kane

6 of 16

    WWE Champion (One time)

    World Heavyweight Champion (One time)

    ECW World Heavyweight Champion (One time)

    Intercontinental Champion (Two times)

    World Tag Team Champion (Nine times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (One time)

    WCW Tag Team Champion (One time)

    Hardcore Champion (One time)

    Money in the Bank Winner (2010)

    Seven WrestleMania wins (XV, 2000, X-Seven, 22, XXIV, XXVII, XXVIII)

    Kane hasn't always been in the WWE spotlight. He has, however, quietly put together a rather lengthy list of accomplishments.

    His multiple major title reigns, WrestleMania victories and tag team success certainly warrants the Big Red Machine a spot.

10. Kurt Angle

7 of 16

    WWE Champion (Four times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (One time)

    WCW Champion (One time)

    Intercontinental Champion (One time)

    European Champion (One time)

    Hardcore Champion (One time)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (One time)

    WCW United States Champion (One time)

    King of the Ring (2000)

    Three WrestleMania wins (X-Seven, X8, 21)

    Although Kurt Angle made the curious jump over to Impact Wrestling, there's no doubt the Olympic gold medalist deserves a spot on this list. 

    In addition to the gold he brought over to the company, Angle won his fair share as a WWE superstar.

    Angle's four WWE Championship reigns, as well as his handful of other honors and accolades, are more than enough to land him here.

9. Chris Jericho

8 of 16

    WWE Champion (One time)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Three times)

    WCW Champion (Two times)

    Intercontinental Champion (Nine times)

    World Tag Team Champion (Five times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (Two times)

    European Champion (One time)

    Hardcore Champion (One time)

    Three WrestleMania wins (X-Seven, XXV, XXVI)

    Best in the World? After looking at this, perhaps.

    Chris Jericho is undoubtedly one of the most gifted wrestlers in history of this industry. He's incredibly athletics, ridiculously skilled in the ring and is more than entertaining with a mic in his hand.

    And although he has a bunch of other accomplishments, his reign as the very first WWE/WWF Undisputed Champion is easily the greatest. 

8. The Rock

9 of 16

    WWE Champion (Seven times)

    WCW Champion (Two times)

    WWE Intercontinental Champion (Two times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (Five times)

    Royal Rumble Winner (2000)

    Five WrestleMania wins (13, XIV, X8, XIX, XXVIII)

    The Great One sits at No. 8 on the list.

    Even though it seemed like a lifetime, The Rock spent about four to five years as a full-timer in the WWE. And by evidence of the resume above, he made the most out of it. 

    The Rock's seven WWE title reigns ranks third all-time. He is also the only man to defeat John Cena, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania.

7. John Cena

10 of 16

    WWE Champion (10 times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Two times)

    United States Champion (Three times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (Two times)

    World Tag Team Champion (Two times)

    Royal Rumble Winner (2008)

    Six WrestleMania wins (XX, 21, 22, 23, XXV, XXVI)

    Speaking of John Cena, the leader of the Fruit Loop Troop lands at No. 7 on this countdown.

    It goes without saying that his 10 WWE Championships rank first in the company''s history. And whether you like him or not, Cena will most certainly run into quite a few more title reigns barring any significant injuries.

6. Bret Hart

11 of 16

    WWE Champion (Five times)

    Intercontinental Champion (Two times)

    World Tag Team Champion (Two times)

    United States Champion (One time)

    King of the Ring (1991, 1993)

    Royal Rumble Winner (1994)

    WWE Hall of Fame (Class of 2006)

    When it comes putting together a wide-ranging list of accolades, consider Bret Hart a hipster of sorts. Sure, you had Hogan and Savage in the Rock n' Wrestling era. But Bret was pretty much the first guy to establish such an extensive resume.

    Hart was WWE Champion five times, won the Rumble in 1994 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2006. He also remains the only man to ever win the King of the Ring tournament twice.

5. Shawn Michaels

12 of 16

    WWE Champion (Three times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (One time)

    Intercontinental Champion (Three times)

    European Champion (One time)

    World Tag Team Champion (Five times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (One time)

    Royal Rumble Winner (1995, 1996)

    WWE Hall of Fame (Class of 2011)

    Six WrestleMania wins (VII, VIII, VII, XIX, 22, XXIV)

    When you talk about Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels usually isn't far off. As the biggest faces of the company's New Generation era, Michaels and Hart built two of the greatest wrestling careers the industry has ever seen.

    Unfortunately for Hart, Michaels just edges him out. The 2011 WWE Hall of Famer has three WWE title reigns as well as a World Heavyweight one upon his triumphant return. Michaels also has two Royal Rumble victories and was the first man to ever win the annual event as the No. 1 entrant.

4. Stone Cold Steve Austin

13 of 16

    WWE Champion (Six times)

    Intercontinental Champion (Two times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (Four times)

    Million Dollar Champion (One time)

    King of the Ring (1996)

    Royal Rumble Winner (1997, 1998, 2001)

    WWE Hall of Fame (Class of 2009)

    Four WrestleMania wins (XIV, XV, X-Seven, X8)

    Just like they did from their era to the next, Michaels and Hart give way to Stone Cold Steve Austin. 

    The Rattlesnake, a six-time WWE champion, is the personification of success in the wrestling industry. Austin remains the only man ever to win the Royal Rumble on three separate occasions. He's the company's fifth triple crown winner and was rightfully inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009.

3. The Undertaker

14 of 16

    WWE Champion (Four times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Three times)

    World Tag Team Champion (Six times)

    WCW Tag Team Champion (One time)

    Hardcore Champion (One time)

    Royal Rumble Winner (2007)

    20 WrestleMania wins (VII, VIII, IX, XI, XII, 13, XIV, XV, X-Seven, X8, XIX, XX, 21, 22, 23, XXIV, XXV, XXVI, XXVII, XXVIII)

    The Undertaker hasn't exactly captured every title out there. But what gets him all the way up to No. 3 on this countdown? Right, his WrestleMania victories. 

    Although his flawless 'Mania track record does contain quite a few stinkers, there's no doubting the instant classics from Taker and his opponents in the last five events. (Triple H, Shawn Michaels and Edge.)

    It's pretty safe to say his 20, and probably more, victories at the annual extravaganza will go untouched.

2. Triple H

15 of 16

    WWE Champion (Eight times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Five times)

    Intercontinental Champion (Five times)

    European Champion (Two times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (One time)

    World Tag Team Champion (Two times)

    King of the Ring (1997)

    Royal Rumble Winner (2002)

    Seven WrestleMania wins (13, XIV, 2000, X8, XIX, XXV, XXVI)

    Some could argue Triple H's success could have come as a result of his standing in the company. But all McMahon jokes aside, he is that damn good.

    What really gets him so high upon this list is his amount of reigns with the company's three major titles. Triple H held the WWE title eight times, the World Heavyweight five times and Intercontinental five times. 

    The Game has also racked up seven WrestleMania victories and is one of only a handful of men to win both King of the Ring and the Royal Rumble.

1. Edge

16 of 16

    WWE Champion (Four times)

    World Heavyweight Champion (Seven times)

    World Tag Team Champion (12 times)

    WWE Tag Team Champion (Two times)

    Intercontinental Champion (Five times)

    WCW United States Champion (One time)

    King of the Ring (2001)

    Royal Rumble Winner (2010)

    Money in the Bank Winner (2005, 2007)

    WWE Hall of Fame (Class of 2012)

    Six WrestleMania wins (2000, X-Seven, X8, 21, 22, XXVII)

    After taking a hard look at Edge's accomplishments, it's pretty relevant that the "done it all" phrase is used much too often. Yes, there are a few titles that Edge has never captured. But if we're talking "done it all," he has to be closest to ever do so.

    The Rated-R Superstar was WWE Champion four times, World Heavyweight Champion seven times and Intercontinental Champion five times. Edge holds the record for the most world tag team title reigns with 12.

    In addition to his title history, Edge has won the Royal Rumble, the King of the Ring tournament and the Money in the Bank ladder match on two occasions. It may have been a bit premature, but Edge took his rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame in 2012.
