Who are the most popular wrestlers outside of the WWE Universe?

Wrestlers who have became so popular - That if you were to ask a random guy on the street who doesn't watch WWE, they would know about him. Wrestlers who are well-known in modern pop-culture. Wrestlers who are an everyday household name.

My personal top 3 are:
1) Hulk Hogan
2) The Undertaker
3) Andre The Giant

Hulk Hogan, The Rock, and Stone Cold should be the only three answers.

Hogan,Rock,Austin

The answer is really obvious.

I'm not so sure about Andre but Undertaker is also quite famous outside wwe universe too,but not in the same level of the 3 above.

Hate to say it, but I'm not sure about Andre. I don't think "a random guy on the street who doesn't watch WWE" would have a clue...same with Taker if I'm being honest. Hogan, SCSA, and Rocky are about it.

Hogan SCSA Rocky and Undertaker, I'm fairly certain you could ask a good majority of people and they would know who they are.

Hogan, Rock and Stone Cold.
Although I guess J.c. would be up there too, as much as it pains me to say it.

Hulk Hogan and the Rock are the two most famous guys of the current generation who have the largest brand at the moment. Austin was a huge wrestler but he doesn't transcend the sport as much as Taker and Rock do.

Taker, just like sting, is only popular within the wrestling bubble.

Wrestling industry itself is shrinking in popularity. If we are talking superstars who transcended the industry its Hogan,Rock and John Cena.

Only three. While Austin did set the world on fire in prime, he is barely relevant in this era.

Rock first, Hogan and Taker next, in Poland those guys are known not only from wrestling.

Austin im sorry guys, but he's not popular anymore.

Hulk Hoan, Austin and The Rock are the obvious three. I'm going to stick myself out there and say if you mentioned John Cena to a non wrestling fan they'd know who he is. The man IS profesional wrestling.

Honestly, as little as 10 years ago, I would've said Andre would be well known outside of wrestling fans, but I'm not so sure anymore. I'd have to go with what most everybody else is saying, and say Hulk Hogan, The Rock and SCSA.
