After I covered the '90s in a previous top 25, it was natural for me to follow with the greatest WWE wrestlers of the last decade.
If the '90s was a transitional decade, the '00s was the confirmation the WWE could adapt to anything. The fans witnessed the end of the Attitude Era, the full cycle of the Ruthless Aggression Era and the birth of the PG Era.
A lot of things happened in the first decade of the 21st century, from retirements to tragedies and from the arrival of the new generation Superstars to some who simply came and left with a bang.
To build the following top 25 of the greatest (and not best or purest) wrestlers, I considered 11 factors, including the major and secondary championships, the in-ring abilities, the mic skills, the impact on WWE and the charisma.
It was easy to list the amount of championships and how many times the wrestlers headlined WrestleMania or other major pay-per-view events. However, there could be dissidence regarding the other factors, such as the mic skills and the impact on WWE.
Keep in mind that the list is only for what happened in the exclusive period of 2000 to 2009.
So, with no more introduction, let's see who made the cut and who's the greatest wrestler of the last decade.
