Re: Who are the 10 biggest stars to rise from the last decade

1.John Cena
2.Batista
3.Edge
4.Randy Orton
5.CM Punk

They're the only real who have emerged in the last 10 years. Not counting Lesnar as he became a star between 2001-02. Very poor considering between 96-02, you had Stone Cold, The Rock, Triple H, Kurt Angle, Chris Jericho etc.

Re: Who are the 10 biggest stars to rise from the last decade

I think practically everyone is underestimating Rey Mysterio. He hasn't held as many World titles as some of the guys or headlined as many PPVs but you can bet far more people are familiar with him than they are with the likes of Punk or even Randy and Batista. I'd put him at number three after Cena and Lesnar. You can bet he's sold a ridiculous amount of merchandise too.

lesnar debuted in april 2002 and became a much bigger star outside of wwe from 2008-11 the one mania with lesnar on top flopped buyrate wise whereas in 2009-10 dude was doing more on ppv than rock or austin at their peak, mysterio became a much bigger star over the past 10 years in terms of revenue, eddies best run in terms of bringing money in came from 2003-05, jeff hardy was outselling cena at one point and headlining pretty much every ppv before he left wwe

HE was still booked as a rising star. Similar to Rock when he debuted, the commentators would always give him the prop of being 'the next big star here in WWE'

Re: Who are the 10 biggest stars to rise from the last decade

Cena.
Brock.
Orton.
Batista.
Punk.
Jericho.

They're the obvious ones.

Benoit, Eddie and Edge would've been HUGE if they still wrestled imo so they deserve spots.

The 10th is the most impressive. The second coming of HBK. To put on 5* matches regularly after having retired and entertain a whole new generation of fans is just awesome. HBK is the re-breakout star

thats what the do with pretty much everyone, he was booked more along the lines of bo dallas than the rock, lets not forget rocky won the equivalent of the whc today a few months into his wwe career, cena was brought up early by heyman because he saw something in him but after the early matches vince soured on him and wwe were ready to release him only for steph to save his skin

fact is cena didn't have a singles match on ppv till backlash 2003 nearly a full year after he debuted

If people think Brock is bigger than Cena,they are crazy.

Brock is a bigger wrestler than Cena because he was the UFC champion. Rock is a bigger wrestler than Hogan because he is a Hollywood star.

I can't understand how people can write such crap
