One of the main reasons wrestlers use stage names is to help build a brand that’s both memorable and recognizable. This is especially true if a wrestler thinks their name is boring, amusing for all the wrong reasons, unattractive, hard to pronounce, or even hard to spell. 

The best WWE wrestlers names are popular for many different reasons. Some of them are funny, some are intimidating, some are fitting for that particular wrestler, and some are just so outlandish you can’t help but remember it. Either way, stage names have a purpose in wrestling.

As we celebrate the best WWE wrestlers names of past and present, let’s take a look at our favorite ones over the past 70+ years. We aren’t going to rank them or put them in any particular order, but they can all be considered among the best WWE wrestlers names of all-time.

18. ‘The One Man Gang’ George Gray

George Gray, better known by his ring name ‘The One Man Gang,’ made his World Wrestling Federation (WWF) debut in 1987. Unfortunately, his stage name wouldn’t last long and he would end up transforming into Akeem the African Dream by the end of 1988 – another good name. 

Standing 6-foot-9 and weighing 457 pounds, ‘The One Man Gang’ nickname was fitting. While he was often on the losing end, especially against big-time wrestlers, he is still remembered for his personality and attitude. He also found success wrestling in the WCW and the UWF. 

17. ‘The Fabulous Moolah’ Lillian Ellison

Lillian Ellison, best known by her ring name ‘The Fabulous Moolah,’ is no-doubt the greatest female WWE superstar of all-time and very well could be one of the greatest, period. In fact, no other athlete in any other sport has been as dominant as she once was in professional wrestling.

As his name suggests, ‘Bad News Brown’ didn’t have any interest in making friends in the ring – even his own teammates. There wasn’t much that instilled fear in him, but he met his match in 1990 when Jake Roberts struck his one true fear – snakes. It led to Browns’ WWE departure.

10. ‘Rey Mysterio’ Óscar Gutiérrez

Óscar Gutiérrez, best known by his ring name ‘Rey Mysterio,’ is one of the most popular lucha libre wrestlers of all-time. If it weren’t for him, the cruiserweight division wouldn’t be what it is today. His pro wrestling career began at the age of 14 when he joined the international circuit. 

At just 5-foot-6 and 175 pounds, ‘Rey Mysterio’ doesn’t have the build of most professional wrestlers, but he doesn’t need it. In fact, he was once a World Heavyweight Champion and even won the 2006 Royal Rumble Match. He’s the nephew of former pro wrestler, ‘Rey Misterio.’ 

9. ‘Sgt. Slaughter’ Robert Remus

8. ‘André the Giant’ André Roussimoff

With a stage name like Andre the Giant, you would expect him to be bigger than life – and he was. Born André Roussimoff, the 7-foot-4 and 520-pound professional wrestler took on the ring name ‘André the Giant’ and was often referred to as the ‘Eighth Wonder of the World.’ 

‘André the Giant’ frequently feuded with Hulk Hogan as he became a popular villain in the WWF. He was personally recruited by Vince McMahon and was the inaugural inductee when the WWE Hall of Fame was created. He was inducted after his sudden death in 1993 due to heart failure.

He wreaked havoc on superstars like Stone Cold Steve Austin and Triple H. His greatness led to many people referring to him as ‘The People’s Champion,’ ‘The Great One,’ and ‘The Most Electrifying Man in All of Entertainment.’ His father, Rocky Johnson, is a WWE Hall-of-Famer.

2. ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage

Randy Paffo, better known by his ring name ‘Macho Man’ Randy Savage, was one of the most dynamic professional wrestlers of all-time. Out of high school, Randy was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals and spent several years in the minor leagues before a career-ending injury. 

It’s a good thing he didn’t follow his baseball career because the WWE wouldn’t be the same. He spoke with conviction and intensity, something he duplicated with his wrestling style. He was a two-time WWE Champion, four-time WCW Champion, and was Intercontinental Champion 14 months in a row. 

1. ‘The Undertaker’ Mark Calaway


Mark Calaway, best known by his stage name ‘The Undertaker,’ is a legend in the WWE community. He spent 30 years in the WWE and was a problem for any wrestler trying to make a name for themselves. He didn’t back down from anyone and quickly set his eyes on Hulk Hogan.

When Simone Johnson, the daughter of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, signed with the WWE in 2020, many wondered if she would one day join her father as one of the all-time WWE greats. She certainly has the framework and she certainly has the fatherly guidance, but can she do it?

Simone has been training inside the WWE Performance Center since 2020, but many believe her debut is right around the corner and fans got a hint of that when she announced her WWE persona for the first time – Ava Raine. She will become the first fourth-generation pro wrestler. 

The announcement was met with mixed reviews. While some fans loved the name and were excited to see her fill the role, others criticized her for not picking a name that more closely associates with her father and his legacy. She immediately clapped back and doubled down.

Speaking of her father’s legacy, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson has written his name among some of the all-time WWE greats – in fact, some have dubbed him ‘The Great One.’ His resume certainly speaks for itself, spending eight years within the WWE brand as one of the baddest.

Brock Lesnar has done a little bit of everything throughout his career as a pro wrestler. Not only did he win the NCAA Division I wrestling championship in 2000, but he won heavyweight championships in the WWE, UFC, New Japan Pro-Wrestling (NJPW). He was built to destroy. 

What’s even more incredible about his story is that he was a WWE champion by the age of 25 and did so within six months of debuting. He won the Royal Rumble twice, Money in the Bank once, and the King of the Ring, and had an incredible 504-day reign as Universal Champion.
