The greatest performer is The Undertaker. There has always been an aura that has set Undertaker apart from his peers.
There is a reason Shawn Michaels has been labeled Mr. WrestleMania.Epic encounters against Chris Jericho, and Kurt Angle.
Without Vince McMahon's vision and a star as popular as Hulk Hogan to help carry it out, WrestleMania would have never existed.

If one judged The Rock based on his first appearance on the grand stage, he would be nowhere near this list.
That all changed in 1992, when he challenged "Rowdy" Roddy Piper for the Intercontinental Championship.
He was also one of the best workers to ever lace a pair of boots, and fans witnessed as much at WrestleMania III.
First at WrestleMania 2000 in the first triangle ladder match, then a year later in Tables, Ladders & Chairs II.
