For many, WWE wrestlers are the real-life superheroes of the world. Whether they were upholding the values of justice or doing whatever it took to win, professional wrestlers continue to inspire or draw the ire of fans. Some feel that wrestling is a fake sport, but people will defend their favorite performers to the death. These athletes breathe so much life into their personas that fans can't help but think they're real.

Many go to the WWE believing they will become legendary, like some of the wrestlers before them, but few performers can really count themselves amongst the best of the best. These almost mythical heroes and villains have etched their names into eternity with unforgettable performances and inimitable characters. That's why we picked 16 of the best wrestlers to fight in the squared circle of the WWE and want you to answer one question: Who is the greatest WWE wrestler ever?

Dusty Rhodes may not have had the superhero persona of the Ultimate Warrior or Hulk Hogan, but that's what made him special. Rhodes was the ultimate blue-collar hero. His belly was a little bigger, and his muscles were a little smaller, but he was an everyman's man.

While the Ric Flair's of wrestling were showing off their Rolexes, Rhodes showed you can still be a hero rocking trucker hats and jeans. He was the embodiment of the American Dream for working his way from the bottom to the top with hard work, no flash, and all substance. Who doesn't want to root for that?

#TeamDusty

There were a lot of charmers in the WWE, but no one got the crowd on his side quite like Rhodes. He had a preacher's ability to rally people with a flow that would be the envy of most rappers. His promos with Ric Flair were legendary and brought professional wrestling to another level in terms of popularity.

Rhodes may not have the crossover popularity that some other professional wrestling superstars have had, but there may be no one more beloved by true wrestling fans than him.

#TeamAndre

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 hero everyone loved. That kind of flexibility with his obvious star power made him one of the greatest to step into a wrestling ring.

#TeamAndre

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.
