You can't talk about giants of professional wrestling without talking about the original. Andre the Giant was a larger than life persona whose dominating reign of terror defined professional wrestling for over a decade—and he never lost a match. His size made him both a great villain and a hero everyone loved. That kind of flexibility with his obvious star power made him one of the greatest to step into a wrestling ring.

His work as a wrestler is the stuff of legend, but what made him even more popular was his legend out of the ring. Whether it was the sheer volume of his alcohol consumption or his gentle demeanor with everyone around him, Andre became one of the few crossover mainstream successes to come out of the WWE.

#TeamCena

You can't see him, but it's hard to miss John Cena. From his incredible ring presence to his perfectly meme-able entrance music, the leader of Cenation is the embodiment of a hero. His mantra of "hustle, loyalty, and respect” is a code his millions of fans follow.

The 10-time WWE Champion is an example of doing things right, and never compromising your values for an easy way out. He has captured the adoration of an entire wrestling generation, and it's not hard to see why.

#TeamCena

Cena made a name for himself in the ring, but it is his work out of the ring that makes him a real hero. He has granted more Make-A-Wish Foundation wishes than anyone in the history of the organization. He has touched over 500 lives, giving people the chance to meet their hero for one unforgettable memory when things are at their toughest.

There is no fan John Cena won't go the extra mile for, and that's what makes him the greatest hero of them all.
