The Definitive Ranking Of Every WWE Wrestler Of The 2000's

It was a decade of massive change. From Attitude to PG, Stone Cold to John Cena, the Monday Night Wars to the Brand Split, and everything in between. These are the men and women who stepped into their spandex and helped make it happen through blood, sweat, and cheesy acting.

First, a few notes.

Who Qualifies: I ranked only superstars who were part of the active wrestling roster at some point between 2000 and 2009. This excludes other personnel such as valets, commentators, managers, general managers, and legends or celebrities making cameo appearances. Even though many of them saw ring time once in a while, if they weren't in a primarily-wrestling role at some point, they were not ranked.

Wrestlers also had to have been part of the main roster, resulting in at least one match on RAW, Smackdown, ECW or a pay-per-view. Talent that was in OVW or FCW was excluded, despite making occasional appearances on secondary shows like Heat and Velocity.

How They Were Ranked: Rankings were based on the quality of the wrestler's performance. Much of it came to in-ring ability, ring psychology, character, and storylines/feuds. This is somewhat unfair to the talented individuals who did not get much of a chance to shine, and for that their potential was somewhat considered, but ultimately it came down to what was actually proven.

Also, only the years 2000-2009 (and in WWE) were considered. This means that work in other decades (80's, 90's, 10's) and in other promotions (WCW, ECW, TNA) was not part of the equation.
