Top 20 WWE Superstars of the New Millennium
Throughout the history of the WWE, there has been countless Superstars that have made the show famous. WWE Legends such as Shawn Michaels, Stone Cold Steve Austin, and the Rock are considered to be three of the biggest stars of all time. However, like everything else in life, things change over time.
Since 2001, dozens of WWE Superstars have come and gone. But, there are a select few that have stayed the course of time, and that’s why we have decided to honor them in a detailed list.
20. Stone Cold Steve Austin
The Texas rattlesnake is arguably the most famous WWE Superstar of all time. In the late 1990s, Stone Cold Steve Austin took over the WWE. His feuds with Shawn Michaels and Vince McMahon are legendary. If we were making a list of the top Superstars of the 1990s, Stone Cold Steve Austin would probably be in the top 3. However, we are talking about the new millennium, and that means from 2001 on.
Stone Cold Steve Austin shocked the WWE when he joined forces with Mr. McMahon at WrestleMania, and it was even more surprising when he joined forces with the WCW alliance. Nonetheless, his retirement match against the rock at WrestleMania 19 is still considered one of the best WrestleMania matches of all time.
19. The Miz
Before he was a WWE Superstar, the Miz was a reality TV star. His role in the Road Rules-Real World challenges are infamous, and no one took him seriously when he joined the WWE roster. However, years of hard work and dedication have made the Miz one of the top WWE Superstars on the current roster. It should also be noted that the Miz actually defeated John Cena in the main event of WrestleMania 27.
Today, The Miz is a movie star, and he enjoys telling everybody about his Hollywood lifestyle. Thankfully, he has been shut up on a number of occasions, but it seems that he still maintains an extreme level of arrogance. Nonetheless, the Miz’s place in WWE history cannot be denied.
18. Trish Stratus
Trish Stratus is one of the best WWE divas of all time. Many wrestling fans consider her to be the best Divas Champion in the history of the WWE, and it’s not hard to see why. Trish Stratus has competed in several classic matches against wrestlers such as Lita, Jacqueline, and Victoria. Aside from being an incredible wrestler, Trish Stratus is also one of the best looking divas that has ever competed in the WWE. Her incredible figure coupled with her intense wrestling style has made her a WWE Hall of Famer.
