8. Sean Michaels
Ask any Superstar on the WWE roster who the most gifted sports-entertainer of all time is and nearly everyone will have the same answer — Shawn Michaels. A cocky, confident heartbreaker from San Antonio, Texas, HBK started off his career as one-half of The Rockers and ended it in a classic match with The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXVI. Along the way, he won every major WWE title, two Royal Rumbles, entry into the WWE Hall of Fame and a reputation as The Icon, The Showstopper, The Main Event. http://www.wwe.com/superstars/hbk
7. Triple HHH
Overall Triple H has won 23 championships in WWE. He has won world heavyweight championship 5 times, and 13 time world champion- The all time record in the company. In addition Triple H won the 1997 King of the Ring, The 2002 Royal Rumble and was the Second Grand Slam Championship winner. http://prowrestling.about.com/od/wwerawwrestlers/p/tripleh.htm
6. Andre The Giant
In WWE, there have been many Superstars who are larger than others, but Andre the Giant has proven to be larger than WWE itself. Throughout the ’70s and well into the ’80s, the so-called “Eighth Wonder of the World” was the company’s leading attraction, towering over the competition at seven feet, four inches tall and tipping the scales at a gargantuan 500-plus pounds. http://www.wwe.com/superstars/andrethegiant
5. The Undertaker
The Undertaker (Mark Callaway) is a Professional wrestler who has worked for WWE for over 20 years. He holds the record for being 21-0 at Wrestlemania before finally being defeated after 2 decades by Brock Lesnar (accompanied by Paul Heyman). Undertaker is the only wrestler still working for the WWE to have appeared on the very first episode of Monday Night Raw. Since Fall 2010 he has been semi-retired, but has still appeared for a several week build-up and eventual match at Wrestlemania every year. http://www.giantbomb.com/the-undertaker/3005-473/
4. Randy “The Macho-Man” Savage
Few Superstars were as dynamic as "Macho Man" Randy Savage. His style — perfectly punctuated by his entrance music, "Pomp and Circumstance" — was only outshined by his performances in the ring, which led him to two WWE Championships. http://www.wwe.com/superstars/randysavage
3. Steve “Stone Cold” Austin
It's not an exaggeration to say that most wrestling fans knew Steve Austin was going to be a huge star from the first time they saw him. The weird part is that everyone who predicted superstardom for him early on was also very wrong: They thought he was the next Ric Flair. He instead ended up as the next Hulk Hogan. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1753539-full-career-retrospective-and-greatest-moments-for-stone-cold-steve-austin
2. The Rock
