John Cena has beaten fierce competition from Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns to be named the best WWE wrestler of the last decade.
The 42-year-old WWE legend emerged during the Ruthless Aggression era in the 2000s and worked his way up to main-event status with the company.
While Cena has been reduced to a part-time role towards the tail end of the previous decade, Bleacher Report called him the "biggest, most successful homegrown talent since The Rock."
Cena, who was named in the 10 best WWE superstars of all time, tied the legendary Ric Flair for WWE's most world championship reigns (16) in the 2010s.
Bleacher said that the leader of 'C-Nation,' who hinted that he might be done with wrestling last year, has "established his place in the annals of pro wrestling history."
Following hot on Cena's heels in second place is current WWE champ Brock Lesnar, who made his sensational return to WWE in 2012.
The 42-year-old 'Beast Incarnate' has become a mega-attraction for the company and enjoyed multiple high-profile feuds, which included ending The Undertaker's WrestleMania streak in 2014.
According to Bleacher, Lesnar's "impact on WWE television has been undeniable" and he has "established himself as one of the most special attractions in all of WWE."
Former Shield star Reigns catapulted to stardom in the last decade and became a three-time world champ and one-time universal champ.
However, the 34-year-old WWE superstar was forced to relinquish the Universal Championship in 2018 after his leukaemia had returned.
Reigns, real name Leati Joseph Anoa'i, returned to WWE last year after confirming that his leukaemia was once again in remission.
Bleacher said in its rankings that the 'Big Dog' will now "set his sights on topping [this] decade's list."
