Our top guy has always been an exceptional athlete, taking his football talent all the way to the pros. There is also wrestling in his blood as both his father and brother graced the mat and several of his cousins became big stars in the WWF/E.

Despite his good looks, Reigns has become a polarizing figure in the public eye. In 2014, he won a "Slammy" for most improved wrestler and later that year won "most overrated wrestler" from the Wrestling Observer Newsletter. Critics have also gone back and forth, arguing that he is annoyingly being manufactured as the hard-luck underdog while turning in a star-making performance at Wrestlemania and exceeding all expectations.

Half Samoan and half Italian, his persona over the years has also been of ambivalence, being known as the man with quiet strength but also an air of strong confidence. One thing remains clear,however, he is off the market and married with a beautiful girl.

Randy Orton

Orton is another handsome lad on our all-time list that comes from a wrestling family. Even more impressive than Reigns, Orton is a third generation professional wrestler after his legendary grandfather and father "Cowboy" Bob Orton.

Randy's been a bad boy. He's been suspended twice by his employer for unprofessional conduct and drug use. He was also discharged from the military for bad conduct after going AWOL twice. That led him straight to military prison for 38 days at Camp Pendleton. On the mend, he then reinjures his collarbone in a motorcycle crash. Ironically, he released a movie in 2015 entitled The Condemned: Desert Pray. And lastly, his persona used to be "The Legend Killer" after disrespecting and physically assaulting several WWE Hall of Famers, including Harley Race and Hulk Hogan.

At the tender age of 24, Orton would become the youngest heavyweight champion in WWE History. He would make his legendary parents even more proud by becoming a 14-time champion. The wrestler/action star also starred ironically in a movie entitled 12 Rounds. The third generation wreslter, actor and bad boy seems to have already been in 12 rounds of life.

Rick Rude

In his day, he would actually put on a striptease before his match in the center of the ring, peeling off his robe, gyrating his hips, and puckering his lips for a big kiss. This was all part of his overconfident, cocky persona that included yelling at the men in the crowd for being overweight and blowing kisses to the blushing ladies.

One of Rude's trademarks was his fashion sense and highly detailed airbrushed tights that he wore during matches. Another trademark was inviting a random woman from the crowd into the ring to make out with him after he won the match. He would also like to play mind games by having the picture of his opponent's wife stenciled on the front of his tights. This crass action would land him in hot water with his archival, Jake Roberts, when the wrestler charged the ring and stripped Rude, appearing to television viewers to leave him naked in the ring, although the live audience saw him stripped to a g-string instead. Yes, Rick Rude was the spiritual forefather to Magic Mike.

Magnum TA

If you're wondering what the "TA" stands for, well, it is not "terrific abs" or "The Adonis", but unfortunately Terry Allen. Sadly, the acronym leaves no room for imagination.

Despite being a born again Christian, TA's wrestling persona was that of a motorcycle-riding bad boy. This gave archival and jet set playboy Ric Flair plenty of ammunition as he chided him for not driving a Mercedes Benz or owning a car. His persona took a fortuitous turn when he started to develop it after another ruggedly handsome man by the name Tom Selleck who was on the top of the world at the time with the popular TV series Magnum PI. It was actually Andre The Giant who would suggest to Terry to combine Magnum with the initials of his first and last name. This persona would click and he would go one to become a multiple time US Heavyweight Champion.

On a fall night in 1986, Allen was driving in his Porsche in the rain and lost control, wrapping the car around a telephone pole.The accident happened only a couple of miles from Allen's home. The accident caused his C-4 and C-5 vertebrae to "explode", and it was doubted that he would ever walk again. Doctors said that Allen's physical conditioning saved his life. The right side of his body was paralyzed for months, ending his in-ring career. Instead of letting depression ruin him, he found the Lord, a wife, a new career as a hedge fund manager and currently resides across the pond with his family of six.

He is one of the most decorated wrestlers in WWF/E history. He holds the distinction as the first grand slam winner, achieving all four belts. He has been described as the most athletic and daring storyteller in the wrestling business, winning the Pro Wrestling Illustrated "Match Of The Year" a record 11 times.

Known as the "The Heartbreak Kid", he began shaping his image and persona in 1992 as a vain, cocky villain. Like Rick Martel, he would flaunt his good looks by carrying around a mirror and his ring walk music included the lyrics "sexy boy". A big fan of Elvis Presley he would even have the announcer inform the crowd "Shawn Michaels has left the building", feeding the image of self-importance and being full of himself. The gimmick worked and super-kicked his career onto a main event level. He would go on to become a four-time champion, two-time Royal Rumble, and widely regarded as the finest performer in both the 1990s and 2000s.

Kevin Nash

A book could be written on Nash's life before he became a pro wrestler. At the University of Tennessee, Nash was a center for the Tennessee Volunteers basketball team, but did not play his senior year due to a scuffle with the coach. He winds up overseas playing for professionally for several teams before his career was cut short due to injury. Nash enlists in the Military Police Company in Giessen, Germany and also served in a secure NATO facility for two years. Back in the states, he would find work as a floor manager in a strip club.

After a successful tag team run, Nash tried his hand at singles and was rebranded as "The Master Blaster". Less than three months later, Nash reappeared under his new gimmick as the silver-haired "Oz", a character based on the acclaimed children's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. By the end of the year, the seven footer found himself in the midst of a lengthy losing streak. He decided to undergo another career face-lift and rebrand himself as the heel "Vinnie Vegas", a wisecracking pseudo-mobster based on Steve Martin's character in the 1990 film My Blue Heaven. He was later recruited by the WWF/E where he would be repackaged again as a typical cocky biker thug, sporting black sunglasses and leather garments. He would leverage this persona into a successful film career, playing the role of Shredder in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and Tarzan in Magic Mike.
