Dr. Wagner Jr.
A rude in all the extension of the word. One of the most critical fighters who have stepped on the Mexican sands and we are fortunate to continue seeing at its best level even though it is no longer a kid.
Contemporary of the masked of silver divided its race between the ring and the big screen. In many ways, it was the antithesis of the Saint.
Holy, the silver-masked
The native of Tulancingo shined, not only in the quadrilaterals but in the cinema. One of the most recognized to which to date is paid homage.
We know that in this list a lot of fighters that have marked epoch have been missing, but maybe in future occasions, we can make this enumeration bigger than it is now. If you have one that is your favorite, do not hesitate to tell us.
The 15 best fighters in WWE History rated by importance and charisma
Andre the Giant
Years active: 1963 - 1992
An icon of a past time, a time of gods and giants. The great Andre was raised in the French city of Grenoble, where his neighbor Samuel Beckett used to take him to school. It was only the first hallmark of a life full of them: undefeated from 1973 to 1987, this legend of wrestling was capable (say, but we decided to believe it) of drinking 120 beers in one sitting.
His rivalry with Hulk Hogan was a matter of legend, as well as his role in 'The Promised Princess'. Andre opened the 1992 Hall of Fame and, a year later, died in a hotel in Paris. Do you want to know how much is still alive in the memory of the fans? They have created a prize in his honor was funny, in a few words. But he also knew what he was doing: he was the first fighter to win three big titles (King of the Ring, Money in the Bank and Royal Rumble), in addition to making great advances in the technique of the blockbusters. By the time he retired, this villainous theorist was one of the superstars most unanimously adored by wrestling fans.
Years active: 1992 - 2011
One of the best heels (slang to define wrestlers who assume the role of bad, as the rudos of Mexican wrestling), this Canadian was also a gifted physical actor. Not only in its movements on the ring, but also in its expressiveness. The guy
Active years: 1987 – Present
The current vice president of the WWE was the visible face of the so-called Age of Attitude, a period that covered the transition between the 90s and the 2000s. It was necessary that wrestling became sharper and politically wrong, so this human mountain (one of the strongest fighters of recent decades) was more than willing to play a game of pain with his rivals. Perhaps the most important of them was The Rock: his fight at Wrestle Mania in 2000 was, surely, his best moment in the ring.
Now he plays a rather malevolent authority figure: his marriage to Stephanie McMahon began as a story line in 1999, but they ended up making it a reality shortly after. Sometimes, professional wrestling can be a bit like ‘Game of Thrones’.
Years active: 1969 – 2015
The Piper left a hole the size of Scotland in the hearts of all fans when he died this summer. This was the show with capital letters, to the point that many viewers unfamiliar with WWE have it on a pedestal thanks to ‘They are alive!’. Within the stadiums, Piper starred in an absolutely mythical confrontation with Hulk Hogan that, in some way, also included the singer Cindy Pauper in the mix. The scholars of this consider that moment as the birth of modern wrestling, of the pop machinery that is still valid today.
The guy knew how to make people entertain themselves: there is, for example, his section ‘Piper’s Pit’, in which he fed new feud with anyone who was your guest every week. Oh, and everything was unscripted. Because the Piper did not need a script to put millions of people in his pocket.
