It’s an enthralling subject that remains shrouded in mystery even now. What is genuine and what is a figment of one’s imagination? When it comes to wrestling’s history, it’s a question that must be posed.
We do know one thing: wrestling is a very genuine and extremely hazardous combat sport. The introduction of mixed martial arts (MMA) has demonstrated to the world how powerful a combination of amateur wrestling and submission can be, demonstrating that grapplers, not boxers, are the toughest men on the earth.
Today the wrestling fans know the sports mainly in two different genres and i.e WWE and UFC.
Fights and many other things altered slowly throughout time. Wrestling matches got increasingly explosive. They quickly lost any resemblance to real wrestling. The majority of the contestants were no longer amateur wrestlers, but rather came from the football and bodybuilding communities.
Starting the fighters list with the names related to WWE.
10) Kurt Angle
Kurt Angle is an Olympic gold medalist who went on to become one of the finest professional wrestlers of all time and one of the best mic men in the business when he joined WWE.
He was a six-time world champion in WWE at the time he retired, in addition to capturing five other championships there. Kurt Angle was also a standout in TNA, where he was a six-time world champion and twice won the X-Division and tag belts. Angle has been inducted into the Halls of Fame of TNA, WWE, and USA Wrestling.
09) Steve Austin
Many fans perceive ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin as a brawler who made a living off his great personality. Austin, on the other hand, is one of the finest professional wrestlers of all time, and he understands how to tell a tale in the ring like no one else.
Austin won six championships in WCW before moving to WWE to become a celebrity, and he went on to become the most popular wrestler in history, winning the world title six times before retiring due to a neck injury.
08) Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho has accomplished nearly everything in professional wrestling. He began his career in Mexico and went on to have success in Japan before returning to America, where he was discovered by ECW. He was soon signed to WCW and was one of the company’s top growing talents. He moved on to the WWE after multiple championships reigns there and became a huge celebrity.
Chris Jericho won six world championships in WWE, in addition to a record-breaking nine Intercontinental Championship title reigns and seven tag title reigns with five different partners. Jericho is currently a member of AEW, where he was the organization’s first global champion, and is still going strong at the age of 50.
07) Dwayne Johnson
Dwayne Johnson competed in the WWF title against great wrestlers like The Brooklyn Brawler. After a few further matches, including a well-known victory against wrestler Bart Sawyer, he was awarded the title of Flex Kavana by the WWF.
Johnson then adopted a distinct brand of world-class wrestlers and had an infamous feud with wrestler Steve Austin. During his time with WWE, he won a total of 17 different titles. He appeared in a number of blockbuster films, including Supernatural Bad Guy, Scorpion King, Game Plan, and others.
Johnson’s acting career flourished with appearances in various films, including Driver (2010) and the very successful Fast & Furious 6 (2013). In 2014, he was cast as a rough man in the film Hercules. He also returned to wrestling brawls on occasion, including a 2014 partnership with the legendary Stone Cold and Hulk Hogan at WrestleMania 30.
06 The Undertaker
Many WWE fans, pundits, and sportsmen consider The Undertaker to be the greatest WWE wrestler of all time. In 1989, he was crowned ‘Master of Pain’ in the USWA Unified World Heavyweight Championship. He won multiple WWF titles in 1991, 1997, 1999, and 2002, to name a few.
In addition, in 2001, he won the WWF Hardcore Championship. The Undertaker’s net worth as of August 2019 is $17 million. The Undertaker’s performance in the 2007 ‘Royal Rumble’ match is regarded as one of his most electrifying.
On the occasion’s SuperCard, five expert wrestling matches were included, and he won the championship by defeating one of the most popular wrestlers, Shawn Michaels. Furthermore, like a tonne, a more significant measure of his accomplishments is one that no one else has had the opportunity to replicate.
Throughout the years, The Undertaker has amassed a slew of lesser-known trophies that none of his buddies can claim to have organized. From stunning scalps on the biggest stages to a full house of wins on every single member of one of the organization’s most renowned stables.
And here are the warriors from MMA;
Jon “Bones” Jones is widely regarded as the greatest fighter who has ever walked inside the Octagon. He is the UFC title belt’s youngest ever winner (at the age of just 23 years old). Jones is unbeaten throughout his whole career (actually, he has one loss, against Matt Hamill, when he was disqualified for 12-6 elbows in the fight where Jon was dominating completely).
What made you the “Last Emperor” moniker? Try going unbeaten for over a decade. His biggest advantage was his longevity, as well as his energy, stoicism, and unpredictability. This Russian heavyweight was a difficult opponent to knock out — or even dominate. Some argue that because he fought for PRIDE-FC, M1 Global, and Affliction rather than the UFC, he had softer opponents; yet, in his peak, Emelianenko was undoubtedly king, retiring with 35 victories in 40 fights.
Ali was The Greatest, and he was as much a personality as he was a boxer, trash-talking opponents and standing up for his views. This heavyweight triumphed in the ring thanks to his height, footwork, quick fists, and Rope-A-Dope style. He was a three-time world champion and Olympic gold winner who finished his career with 56 victories in 61 contests. Even when he was dubbed “over the hill,” Ali astonished everyone.
Ngannou is one of the world’s most dangerous guys. He’s the heaviest hitter in UFC history, standing at 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds.
Ngannou was once questioned if punchers are born or manufactured, and where he obtained his concussive strength. He revealed last year that he is a self-taught puncher as a result of child labor in Africa.
Ngannou relocated to France later in life, began to fight, and after his sixth fight, he was signed by the UFC.
In his fight list, he has 16 wins(12 KO and 4 submissions) against 3 losses(3 decisions ).
01) Kamaru Usman
Since his debut in 2015, Usman has been destroying the UFC competition.
He’s previously defeated Leon Edwards, Rafael dos Anjos, and Tyron Woodley, winning the middleweight title in the process.
His first UFC championship defense against MAGA hat-wearing Colby Covington propelled him further into the awareness of combat sports fans, as he battered Covington so badly that his jaw was left hanging off its bloodied hinges.
Usman is currently lapping opponents and defeating them twice. And he’ll get another chance to beat Covington, as UFC president Dana White has suggested that’s likely next.
People may have been wondering who will take Khabib Nurmaomedov’s pound-for-pound title and throne when he retired.
Kamaru Usman till now has 19 wins (9 KO’s, 1sub, 9 decisions ) against 1 loss(submission).
Nowadays, people are thrilled to see more upcoming fighting devils in MMA.
