You can find the complete list, which extends beyond 50, over at Ranker. It's worth noting that certain entries were omitted due to the tag team and superstars from factions making the rankings. Where both superstars from a certain faction didn't make the rankings (like the Dudley Boyz), the WWE stable remained in the rankings.
