The Rock, The Undertaker, Triple H, John Cena, Goldberg, Ultimate Warrior, Shawn Miachels, Jeff Hardy, CM Punk, Ken Shamrock, Bret Hart, Chris Jericho, Brock Lesnar, Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Owen Hart, Batista, Randy Orton, Ric Flair and Sting are my all time favourites rankwise.
In general and in comparison, Lesnar. Batista was a strong guy, but I've never seen an athlete like Brock Lesnar in my life and it's highly possible anyone who comes close to him still pales in comparison.
The man really is incredible.

Lesnar was better overall. Batista got quite a bit of heat on the Internet before his last run in case people forget. Lesnar is a one in a million and working with Heyman, he was just that much better.
CM Punk, American Dragon, Ziggler, Shelley, Low-Ki, Benjamin, Cheerleader Melissa, Hamada
Lesnar, he's one of my top 3 wrestlers of all time, up there with The Rock and just behind the GOAT BPP. His in-ring work is entertaining as fuck. Brb wrestling, brb ground and pound, brb power moves and suplexes all over the place, brb stiff as fuck, brb moves like a highflyer and still a great seller/ring psychologist all at the same time. The guy is the most universally talented ring-worker I've ever seen, he can do everything a small athletic highflyer can do, he can do everything a proficient technical wrestler can do, and he can throw guys around like a big guy can do. He uses 100% of his genetic superiority and hard work in the gym in an entertaining manner and it pays off.
Marks for Austin Aries/D Bryan crew
Brock Lesnar by far. Better matches, better feuds. It's not even close. Batista had a great look and the rare good promo, but was injury prone and got carried in the ring all the time. Brock was huge AND a great in ring talent, never got carried and constantly had great matches with everyone from guys like Angle and Taker to midcarders like Rey and Benoit. And his match with Cena last year was better than any match Batista had with Cena.
Lesnar in the ring, but Batista's no slouch for a big man either. Then there's the category of mic skills. When Batista's a face, it's about even, but when he's a heel, he completely blows Brock out of the water on the mic. It's not even close.
^furious, projects self-image onto others^
