WWE’s 10 Greatest Superstars Of All Time Have Been Ranked

WWE’s 10 Greatest Superstars Of All Time Have Been Ranked

Stone Cold Steve Austin has fended off fierce competition from fellow WWE icons to be named the best superstar in the history of the company.

Bleacher Report compiled the list in 2018 and broke down the rankings based on different criteria.

The publication awarded a score of 0-10 based on four specific areas: 'Entrance Music,' 'Finishing Move,' 'On the Mic' and 'In the Ring.'

And the individual scores would be added up for an overall rating out of 40, with WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold receiving a whopping 39.7.

Bleacher Report said that wrestling legends Bruno Sammartino, Harley Race and Jimmy 'Superfly' Snuka 'didn't come close to making the cut' due to its criteria system.

"Entrance music and promos weren't really prevalent until the 1980s, but it's impossible to imagine an episode of Monday Night Raw without those elements," the publication wrote.

And Sting, Goldberg and Diamond Dallas Page were also ruled out of the list due to them being best known for their careers in WCW.

Posted below are the top ten WWE superstars of all time.
