WWE is the land of giants, men, and women of muscles.
Naturally, there’s a group of young people (kids) who are expecting a certain level of animalistic strength in their favorite star than just cool wrestling moves.
Because it’s not a big deal for a wrestling enthusiast to watch a wrestler lift an opponent wrestler out of the ground and slam it into a mat as if its a pillow.
However, there are gigantic beasts that display truly amazing feats of heroic strength and athleticism among these well-known freaks of nature.
They are the monsters of men portrayed to face the millions of loving and amazing fans expecting to see something unbelievable.
Here are the top 10 strongest WWE wrestlers:
10. Big Show
The giant WWE Big Show has haunted the square circle for over two decades.
The tremendously huge athlete has become so synonymous with incredible power throughout that time.
Of course, much of the attraction of the big show always was his huge, I mean very huge measurements.
His strength is, however, is also extremely impressive.
When some superstars in WWE revealed their best bench press results, remarkable superstars such as John Cena and Roman Reigns landed near between 445 and 465 pounds while monsters like Kane, Brodus Clay, Titus O’Neil, and Ryback reached around 525 to 550 neighborhood.
The best record belonged to Big E, who pressed a whopping 575 pounds (Cena by chance watched and called it the best he had ever seen).
Umm, and then there was the Big Show who casually admitted to pressing “just” 500 pounds for 12 reps. Sweet!
Big Show once in WrestleMania pushed over a jeep which driven to the ring by Luther Reigns just by bare hands to show that he could move the marginally much heavier sumo like Akebono.
9. Scott Steiner
There was only time when you were happy to hear sirens, “Holla If Ya Hear Me.”
The former World Championship Wrestling Heavyweight Champion made his aura feel different from the others in the showdown with a biceps higher than the Himalayas.
“Big Bad Booty Daddy” remains as one of the most talented athletes ever to wrestle or one of the freakiest physiques to ever step inside a ring or a crazy wrestler with an aggressive, brash gang-member attitude.
Whatever you prefer, ‘The Big Poppa Pump’ has a very successful career spanning over thirty years and still in 2020, shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
We can best describe Scott Steiner as the Brock Lesnar of the 1990s for younger fans unfamiliar with “Big Poppa Pump.”
Long before Lesnar became a “Beast,” “Freakzilla” was astonishing crowds with its own demonstrations of animalism, surprising agility, and amazing aerial wrestling moves, and not to mention the decimation of his adversaries with a variety of suplex variations.
8. Big E
Ettore Ewen is an American professional wrestler and a former football player.
Much of his in-ring signature moves are focused on strength features, including his best signature finisher, the Big Ending.
At 24, Big E broke powerlifting records in his 275-pound weight class, four Florida state records.
At the same event, he also broke the national deadlift record.
Big E squatted raw weight of 611 pounds, a raw bench press of 490 pounds, and a clean 749-pound deadlift earning for a total score of 1,851 pounds.
In 2011 Big E competed in Scranton, Pennsylvania, at the US Powerlifting Raw Nationals.
In that competition, he broke national records (799 raw pounds) and raw total weight (2,039 raw pounds) at that event while competing in the Super Heavyweight Division (+275 pounds).
WWE.com launched an introduction in 2013 on how much original WWE stars can bench.
The Big E’s number came at an impressive maximum of 575 pounds, which is by any standard is impressive.
Obviously, those there has to be a reason for those massive pectorals.
7. Braun Strowman
Braun Strowman is a relatively new WWE star and his popularity continues to grow.
He is WWE’s newest big man to join a long history of wrestling giants that included The Undertaker, The Great Khali, The Big Show, Mark Henry, King Kong Bundy, Viscera (Big Daddy V) and, of course, André the Giant.
A man’s monstrosity of 6-foot-8 height, 385 pounds became instantly popular as a member of the Wyatt family and has since then he has elevated crowds with his immense manhandling power in and around the ring.
Adam Scherr (his actual name) also competed in the 2011 Arnold Amateur Strongman Championships.
He was also in Pro Strongman competitions, but he did not win.
His peak weight was 415 pounds, and that’s isn’t WWE’s “billed” weight, it is his actual weight.
Over the last two years, he dominated the square ring like nobody else.
From destroying Roman Reigns to overthrowing an ambulance, he had done incredible feat of strengths.
Indeed, Strowman is the only person who managed to manhandle Brock Lesnar like no one before did.
6. Bill Goldberg
When the Monday Night Wars seemed to be turned to the Vince McMahon by Stone Cold Steve Austin at the peak of the Attitude Era, a fire-breathing character, larger than the character of life, emerged, mirrored Stone Cold‘s appearance, with a ten times intensity.
With an unplanned untouched streak of 173 wins in a row, leaving only destruction and carnage in his wake, Goldberg would run through all his opponents mercilessly.
Very rarely had a performer who was unaware, had such a huge degree of an epic journey.
Bill Goldberg is one of the world’s most renowned wrestlers.
In 2018, after his infamous return, WWE inducted him in the 2018 Hall of Fame.
Goldberg once wrestled for World Wrestling (WCW) before World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) takeover.
Still in 2020, at the age of 53, Goldberg can give any generation wrestler a run for their money.
If we consider power-to-weight wise, Cesaro could be the strongest man in WWE (and maybe overall).
No other wrestler deadlifts an opponent from the ground with the same ease and grace as the Swiss Superman, nor do they move their enemies in the middle of the air as if he washed out a piece of clothing casually.
Once Mark Henry said, “Cesaro is beyond naturally strong.”
Cesaro once swung the wrestling’s giant monster, The Great Khali in his finishing move just like an Olympic athlete performs Hammer throw.
The “Swiss Superman” has won a spot as a workout partner for power monsters such as John Cena and Sheamus while on the road.
It is very good training, but it’s the strength that you don’t expect him to have.
There shouldn’t be any surprise to see the Big Red Machine on the list. His higher placing, however, might surprise you.
Perhaps his scary monstrous persona overshadowed his physical strength features.
For the sake of relevance, we would be talking about pre-2010 Big Red Monster Kane, not gentle giant – corporate Kane or current Knox County Mayor.
Although Kane is not as ripped off the list as others are, but he is insanely strong.
At 6 foot 7 inches frame, Kane manhandled some of the strongest grapplers in the wrestling history.
Feats of Kane’s strength include lifting Triple H into the military press, giving the undertaker a tombstone, and in an elimination match, lifting off the Big Show over the top rope.
Brock Lesnar once mentioned in an interview that an arm-wrestling match between the wrestlers occurred once backstage.
Lesnar succeeded in defeating all the men, even the Big Show, but Kane was the only one he wasn’t able to beat.
Lesnar said that Arm wrestling with Kane was like pulling a tree with one arm!!!
Just like an old school rapper carried carries Big Boombox, Kane once carried 500lb Big Show on his one shoulder and walked around the ring.
3. Mark Henry
Although many of WWE have their own home in hyperbole, Mark Henry was dubbed as “the World’s Strongest Man” was not an exaggeration or WWE roleplay.
And sometimes Henry would be called upon to make life easier for the WWE Superstars (or WWE management) with his superhuman strength.
Henry was not only the monster of every monster, but he was a distinct type of monster, a specific race species, which in the gym could do things that none of the genetic freaks could even imagine!
Henry holds the world record as the youngest man ever to squat over 900 pounds without a squat suit and the youngest person with a total of over 2300 pounds score–the only person ever to perform these feats at age 25.
Mark Henry has an extensive list of strength features.
On an episode of SmackDown in 2006 tried to interfere in a caged match between Batista and Rey Mysterio vs MNM.
Mistakenly, the caged door was wrap locked with a REAL steel chain. After struggling for a couple of minutes, Henry ripped that chain off with his bare hands.
Once The 17-year WWE veteran pulled a semi-truck at the Press Forward Back to School charity event presented by Agape Christian Ministries.
2. John Cena
The popularity of Cena has helped him bag commercials for major brands and he has developed into the movie industry there.
Cena debuted in WWE in 2002 as The Prototype and quickly became a crowd favorite.
The famous catchword of John Cena, “You can’t see me,” used to for some time to taunt his opponents, suggesting that they weren’t up to its standard.
But since Cena spends more time in Hollywood, WWE fans can’t really see Cena.
Wrestlemania 25 was one of the best moments of this type.
This was one of the first true supercars and matches as famous as the first battle between The Undertaker and Shawn Michaels.
However, John Cena managed to do something which was still a subject of discussion.
He lifted Big Show with Edge stacked on top of him cleanly off the ground and delivered an Attitude Adjustment for the ages.
It was about 750+ combined pounds in weight and even his ardent haters tip their hats to his strength.
500lb Big show once said
“When Cena picks you up, it’s like you’re standing on concrete, I can call for pizza, I can order food, he is strong and really stable.
One can feel the stability of he’s strength….He’s like a machine.”
1. Brock Lesnar
Lesnar’s record at MMA is unspectacular 5-3-1. However, the standard of his opposition does not take this record into account.
He holds four out of five victories by defeating MMA legends like Heath Herring, Randy Couture, Frank Mir, and Shane Carwin.
Brock started to compete in MMA not from the below, but by facing heavyweight weight division’s champion fighters.
Lesnar is an professional wrestler with excellent take-down and grappling skills, as he is a former NCAA Division One amateur wrestling champion.
Brock Lesnar also has a breathtakingly strong chin, meaning that knocking him out is not easy.
Not just UFC, he is distinguished even in the world of WWE, where over-arching titans and powerhouses reside.
He has an eye-catching blend of power, athleticism, agility, and a frightening presence that makes him so feared.
There are very good reasons for Lesnar to be known as Beast Incarnate and the WWE champion is, after all, easily one of the scariest wrestlers.
Kurt Angle once said that Brock Lesnar squatted 900 pounds and benched 650 lbs.
He played in Extreme Rules against John Cena back in 2012, upon his return to WWE.
Once Lesnar showed off his strength by picking up a referee plainly with one hand (just as someone picks up a bag) and tossed him quite casually back in the ring.
