And what makes a great wrestling superstar? Is it matches and moves? Box office receipts? Pure charisma? Or all of the above?

Sun Sport ranks the 10 best WWE wrestlers of all time.

10. Charlotte Flair

While dad Ric doesn’t make the list (most of his best work happened outside WWE), Charlotte has been WWE’s best all-round performer for years.

She’s the most important female star in company history, with game-changing matches against Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, Asuka, Sasha Banks, and more.

Already a 12-time champ – she’s on track to beat Ric’s record of 16 – Charlotte’s career is just getting started.

9. Triple H

Trips has been a divisive figure but you can’t argue with 20 years at the top of WWE.

He helped create the Attitude Era with DX and became the best in the business in 2000.

Since then, he’s been crucial in making new stars and future champs – Randy Orton, Batista, John Cena, Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins, all owe a debt to “The Game”.

Now he uses his sharp mind as the new Head of Creative following reshuffle at the top of the organization earlier this year.

His Superman-style defies believability and turned some fans against him.

But he’s the biggest ratings and ticket draw of the last 15 years.

7. Brock Lesnar

“The Beast” is a rare physical specimen in wrestling – a scary powerhouse whose legitimacy is unrivalled.

But Brock also has a great mind for the psychology of wrestling.

A true wrestling attraction, Brock makes everything he touches feel legit – matches, opponents, and championships.

6. Bret Hart

The Hit Man was a true artist of the pro wrestling craft.

Unlike some past generation stars, his matches don’t date – they get better with age.

Changing WWE from the big man-style to a more nuanced craftsmanship, Bret championed quality wrestling during WWE’s creative low-point of the mid-90s.

He wasn’t a draw as champ, but Bret had some of the best ever matches – against Steve Austin, Undertaker, HBK, and his brother Owen – and was the best…
