Becky Lynch

Becky Lynch has been the most popular wrestler in all of WWE since last summer. Declaring herself The Man, Lynch won the women's Royal Rumble match in January and, along with Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey, became the first woman to main event WrestleMania.

'The Beast' Brock Lesnar

A former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar is the real deal. He's been the WWE's top star for the last few years, headlining the company's biggest shows despite only wrestling a few times a year.

He's been top dog since 2014, when he ended The Undertaker's 23-year WrestleMania winning streak (pictured). He's a 3-time Universal Champion and his matches, though rare, are always worth watching.

John Cena

John Cena has been the face of the WWE for most of the past 15 years. His grappling duties have eased up as he transitions into Hollywood, but Cena still returns a few times a year to dust off his world-famous jorts.

Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns is the wrestler WWE has chosen to take Cena's role as face of the company. WWE has been working hard to achieve this over the past few years, making Reigns the focal point of most of its programming. 

However, Reigns recently had to take a few months off for a very real battle leukaemia. He returned in February, announcing his leukaemia is in remission, meaning there are big things in Reigns' 2019.

'The Phenomenal' AJ Styles

AJ Styles is one of the best wrestlers in the world. A former star of companies like TNA and New Japan Pro Wrestling, it took AJ 15 years to get to the WWE, but his finesse and spectacular offense is unmatched in the company.

He made his debut in January 2016 and has had countless great matches since. He also became the WWE Champion in just eight months, among the quickest to ever capture the prestigious title.

Kevin Owens

Kevin Owens spent much of 2018 out with injury, but he's back. As good as he is in the ring, and he's great in the ring, Owens is more known for his talking ability. WWE has notorious problems with over-producing its talking segments, but Owens is one of the few performers who comes off as genuine and likeable (or hateable, if he's playing a bad dude). 

7 of 15 WWE


Ricochet made his name in Pro Wrestling Guerilla and New Japan Pro Wrestling, and now hopes to make a dent in WWE. He's the embodiment of a high flyer, employing spectacular offense that often involve impressive flips. 

Also, he has a fantastic abs.

Triple H

Triple H is in the twilight of his wrestling career, grappling only a few times a year. But he's bigger than ever -- literally, look at those guns -- and recently defeated Dave Bautista, aka Drax the Destroyer, at WrestleMania 35.

The 14-time world champ has moved to a behind-the-scenes position in recent years, becoming the 2IC behind CEO Vince McMahon. When he shows up in front of the camera, it's usually a pretty big deal.

Kofi Kingston

A member of the WWE roster since 2007, 2019 looks to be Kofi Kingston's year. Kingston in February was put into a gauntlet match, where he defeated three opponents in succession. The performance made him a star to fans, and he reached a career high at WrestleMania when he beat Daniel Bryan to win the WWE Championship.

Charlotte Flair

In the past few years, WWE has made women's wrestling matter. The female performers went from getting the "bathroom break" spot -- that is, given a few minutes to wrestle in between big matches -- to being headlining acts.

The woman leading the pack is Charlotte Flair, daughter of the legendary Ric Flair. One of the company's best athletes, Flair is a multiple-time women's champion and, most importantly, an awesome wrestler.

'The Viper' Randy Orton

Randy Orton has been earmarked for success since day one. A third-generation wrestler, he became one of the company's chosen ones in the earler '00s. 

Seventeen years later, Orton is a 13-time world champion and a bona fide legend. 

12 of 15 WWE

Seth Rollins

Explosive, high-flying and silky smooth, Seth Rollins has become one of the company's most versatile performers -- both in and out of the ring.

He's been great as a good guy and a bad guy, as a single's star and as a tag-team wrestler. Like Kofi Kingston, Rollins also hit a career peak at WrestleMania: He beat Brock Lesnar to win the Universal Championship.

13 of 15 WWE

Daniel Bryan

After a three-year hiatus due to injury, Daniel Bryan returned to the squared circle at 2018's WrestleMania. Bryan is one of the most popular wrestlers of the last decade, which is why it was shocking to see him turn into a bad guy last November. 

But what a bad guy he's been, as he's managed to turn himself from arguably the most beloved hero to arguably the most hated villain. 

14 of 15 WWE

Bray Wyatt

After a much-need hiatus, Bray Wyatt is back with a refreshed character. He spent a few months doing the awesome Firefly Fun House vignettes, and has returned to in-ring action as The Fiend.

WWE has always been high on Wyatt, putting him in high-profile WrestleMania feuds with the likes of The Undertaker and John Cena over the years, so it's likely we'll see him return to the main event scene as The Fiend.

Aleister Black

The Ominous Man from Amsterdam, Aleister Black is one of the newer members of the WWE roster. He's trained extensively in kickboxing, and has spectacular, explosive strikes to show for it.
