NEW YORK – It was arguably the most memorable period in the history of the WWE, and produced some of the most iconic stars ever to step inside a wrestling ring.
For the wrestlers who competed in the Attitude Era, they were blessed in terms of being around a remarkably exciting period of professional wrestling. Innovative storylines and people pushing the boundaries beyond anything ever seen before made for some amazing scenes, meaning the men chiefly involved were inevitably going to become hugely popular.
Could there be any doubt over the guy who is top of this illustrious list? Forget the Attitude Era, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin is the biggest drawing star of any era, and he is without doubt the most popular.
Able to draw huge reactions as both a babyface and a heel, The Rock was arguably one of the most important men ever to step inside a ring during the Attitude Era.
Shawn Michaels is one of the most iconic men to ever step inside a WWE ring, and he more than played his part in some of the biggest storylines of the Attitude Era.
As one half of D-Generation X, Triple H earns an incredibly high spot on this list on absolute merit. A multiple champion across a variety of divisions, Triple H has ensured his legacy by playing a crucial role in the Attitude Era.
Arguably the biggest rivalry of the entire era didn’t come from two men who were full-time wrestlers, but between a bold, brash Texan and the biggest power figure in wrestling history – Vince McMahon.
Here is complete list:
1. Stone Cold Stave Austin
2. The Rock
3. Shawn Michaels
4. Triple H
5. Vince McMahon
6. Chris Jericho
7. The Undertaker
8. Bret Hart
9. Mick Foley
10. The Dudley Boys
