1. Vincent Kennedy McMahon also known as Mr. McMahon is the most important man in sports-entertainment. He is the innovator, visionary, and brilliant leader of the WWE Universe. Mr. McMahon created superstars and made them into household names. If it were not for him, many people would not have had the opportunity to do what they love on a worldwide platform. One of my all-time favorite gimmicks of McMahon is “Mr. McMahon Kiss My Ass Club”, which consisted of various WWE Superstars being ordered to kiss his ass in the middle of the ring, usually with the threat of suspension or firing if they refused. Mr. McMahon is a genius!
2. Hulk Hogan is the single most recognizable person in sports-entertainment. People automatically think of this 2005 WWE Hall of Famer when thinking about pro wrestling. Hulk Hogan’s popularity was so huge that he headlined wherever he went, and became a cultural icon. Many credited him for the wrestling boom of the 1980s. Hulk Hogan has had mainstream success as both a movie and television star. Most people considered Hulk Hogan as the greatest in sports-entertainment.
3. The Rock was one of the fastest rising stars of sports-entertainment. In his short career, he earned world championships and became an icon in his genre. The Rock utilized the WWE as a springboard to Hollywood stardom. He made the most successful transition from professional wrestler to movie star. The Rock starred The Mummy Returns, The Scorpion King and Doom, which gotten great reviews. He hosted “Saturday Night Live” in 2000 and gave a speech at the 2002 Republican National Convention. The Rock no longer competes in the ring, but he remains one of the most beloved WWE Superstars.
4. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is the greatest Superstar in WWE history. This 2009 WWE Hall of Famer’s persona captivated die-hard wrestling fans in the WWE Universe, and his merchandise was the best selling in sports-entertainment history. “Stone Cold” Steve Austin starred in The Condemned, and has done many commercials. He is perhaps best remembered for his legendary battles with WWE Chairman Mr. McMahon.
5. John Cena is the biggest and most famous wrestler in today’s WWE. Like his predecessors, Hulk Hogan and The Rock, he has made a successful transition to a movie star. John Cena starred in 12 Rounds, The Marine and Legendary. He is also a bona fide hip-hop star. John Cena has the potential to be the greatest superstar in his generation as he is getting better and learning how to be great.
