Wrestlers come in all shapes in sizes, from all over the world. However, over the years there has been one place in particular that has produced more than its share of greats – Canada.
The list of Canadian legends in the sport of professional wrestling is a long one. The WWE is loaded with Hall of Famers from the “Great White North” and there are plenty more names that are sure to be added as time goes on. Of course, this leads to a difficult question. Who are the greatest wrestlers the nation has ever produced?
To answer this question, we have ranked the ten greatest Canadians to ever set foot in the ring.
Holding down the number one spot we have none other than Bret “Hitman” Hart. He is widely regarded as one of the best in-ring technicians of his generation – or any other one for that matter. Hart always had amazing matches and fans never had to suspend their disbelief to enjoy them.
Hart is 5-time WWE World Heavyweight Champion and is one of the few wrestlers who has been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame twice (once as a member of the Hart Foundation). His match with his brother Owen and Shawn Michaels are two of the best in Wrestlemania history. He was also WWE's top start throughout much of the 1990s.
