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 have been superstars in the WWE before, but there was no one bigger than Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. From his iconic entrance music to his athletic performances in the ring, Johnson took his popularity in pro wrestling and transcended to mainstream megastardom that had never been seen before.

Johnson may have strayed from his face role into heeldom a few times but his time as a hero lit the WWE on fire, even during one of the most popular eras of professional wrestling. Johnson wasn't just a star—he was the star. Do you smell what The Rock is cooking?

#TeamTheRock

He may have been one of the best athletes on WWE roster (Johnson was a national championship football player at the University of Miami), but his mic work was what made him legendary.

When he wasn't smoking jabronies in the ring, he was killing them in promos. No one could turn a phrase or create a catchphrase out of thin air like Johnson. Don't you think? IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK.

#TeamHBK

There was no one more natural in the ring than Shawn Michaels. Whether he was a face or a heel, you never questioned what the Heartbreak Kid was feeling. His passion was also evident in his ring work, where he sacrificed his body with some of the most athletic, high-flying moves in the WWE while he was active.

There may never be another overall threat like Michaels ever again.

People remember the classic matches Michaels was a part of, but he also had his lighter moments.
