For many, WWE wrestlers are the real-life superheroes of the world. Whether they are upholding the values of justice or doing whatever it takes 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 eight 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?

There were heroes, and then there was the Hulkster. After defeating the hated Iron Sheik, Hulk Hogan became a household name. With his army of Hulkamaniacs, Hogan would dominate the WWE for over four years. He would ride his support to incredible victories against some of the sport's greatest opponents, including Andre the Giant and King Kong Bundy.

Hogan established himself as the all-American superhero, frequently waving the flag around as he lay waste to the villains who dared to threaten the company. There were many good guys in professional wrestling, but there weren't any heroes more wholesome than Hogan.

Hogan was the WWE's greatest champion and hero, but that all ended in 1996. Hulk Hogan turned heel to become "Hollywood" Hogan in the WCW, an arrogant, entitled coward who would hide behind his cohorts to protect his title. He was ruthless, and as much as people loved him when he was the face, they hated him just as much when he was the heel. Even when he was the villain, Hogan was the star of the show.

#TeamAndreTheGiant

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.

#TeamAndreTheGiant

Andre's 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.
