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?

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.

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 he won't go the extra mile for, and that's what makes him the greatest hero of them all.

The WCW needed new blood in the '90s with superstar Ric Flair aging. Enter Sting. The company found the anthesis of Ric Flair and ushered in a new era where the organization was never more popular.

Sting, a ball of energy from Venice Beach, brought a charismatic hero to counter Flair (and later the NWO) who was a tireless worker and one of the best performers the industry has ever seen. Even in his later years, Sting's athleticism was on full display, putting everything on the line for the fans. Sting was the hero of heroes in professional wrestling.

When Hulk Hogan turned heel, the NWO ran the WCW. Anyone who opposed them was met with a swift beating, and intimidating message to fall in line. Sting, who now dawned a darker persona, would not bow down to the NWO's demands, and rallied the other wrestlers behind him to overthrow the NWO.

Sting finally got Hogan at Starrcade, when the world saw the Stinger make Hollywood quit in the ring. The rest of the WCW rejoiced and paid tribute to him in the ring. You know you're something special when your rivals celebrate your victory.
