Top 50 Superstars Ranked by WWE Itself
Hello, Creatures of the Night. Recently, I got some news on WWE's new DVD. Greatest 50 WWE Superstars of all time. To say the least, I'm a bit surprised.
This list differs a lot more than the ones on the B/R.
I am not that all surprised by the No. 1 entrant. I want to know the opinions of my fellow B/R Members so here you have it.
Also please remember, this is not up to my standards. I'm just simply naming the picks by WWE.
50. Killer Kowalski
He trained Triple H. Definitely deserves a spot on the list.
Dave Batista. Arguably the face of WWE in 2005. No. 2 guy behind Cena after his injury. Multiple-time World Champion.
48. Rick Rude
Ravishing Rick Rude. One of the Greatest IC Champions of all time.
47. Bob Backlund
Famous for losing his title in just a few seconds.
46. Dory Funk Jr.
(Along with Terry Funk, Dory Funk Jr. formed the only brother tandem to win World titles, both in the NWA. - ED.)
45. Jeff Hardy
Jeff Hardy deserves to be higher, at least in the top 20.
44. Nick Bockwinkel
(Bockwinkel held the AWA World title several times and was managed by Bobby "The Brain" Heenan. - ED.)
(Current World heavyweight champion, the top man on WWE Smackdown - ED.)
42. Sgt. Slaughter
41. Jack Brisco
40. Big Show
39. Jake The Snake Roberts
38. Billy Graham
37. Junkyard Dog
36. Gorilla Monsoon
35. Buddy Rogers
34. Kurt Angle
Kurt Angle. Number 34? Not at all. Arguably one of the Greatest. He should at least be in the top 10
33. Mick Foley
Foley is a Hardcore Legend. But doesn't deserve to be ahead of Kurt Angle.
32. Jimmy Snuka
31. The Iron Sheik
30. Pat Patterson
29. Randy Orton
Orton will be ranked higher as the years pass.
28. Freddie Blassie
27. Fabulous Moolah
26. Ted Dibiase
25. Chris Jericho
Y2J. To low??? I think so
24. Bruno Sammartino
23. Hulk Hogan
Seriously? Hulk Hogan may not be the best wrestler, but he practically brought the WWF to larger audiences.
22. Terry Funk
21. Lou Thesz
20. Jerry Lawler
The Rated R Superstar. Pretty high, but he deserves to be here.
18. Dusty Rhodes
17. Ric Flair
I don't know if Flair should be this low. He deserves to be in the top 10.
16. John Cena
John Cena's place on this list is well deserved. No matter what the IWC thinks.
15. Curt Hennig
14. Randy Savage
13. Gorgeous George
12. Triple H
Triple H. Top 10.
11. Eddie Guerrero
Five years ago, he stole our hearts. R.I.P Latino Heat
10. Roddy Piper
9. Rey Mysterio
Rey's higher than I thought he'd be. But that's WWE for you.
8. Andre The Giant
7. Ricky Steamboat
6. Harley Race
If you thought Eddie, Flair, and Triple H are bad. Watch this guy's matches. One of the Dirtiest Player's in the game
5. The Rock
The Great One. Number four. That's good enough for me.
4. Bret Hart
The Hitman's position on this list suits me.
3. Stone Cold Steve Austin
Ushered in the Attitude Era. He deserves his spot.
2. The Undertaker
The Phenom. I might have placed him at three or four. But Taker deserves his spot. Some may even argue that he's the Greatest.
1. Shawn Michaels
HBK. The Greatest Wrestler of all time. IMO. Number one WWE Superstar of all time
Creatures, please don't shoot the messenger. All of these picks were ranked by the WWE. Due to the multiple problems I have with the list, I will begin work on my own.
This ranking has inspired me. I'm going to write an article about HBK, and why he deserves to top spot.
