8 WWE legends and their favorite wrestlers - Slide 8 of 8

Here are eight WWE legends and their favorites, some from the past and some from the current programming.

Stone Cold Steve Austin was a lot of fans’ favorite wrestler in the 1990s.

While some professional wrestlers, like Brock Lesnar, grew up with other interests, a lot of the performers in the WWE and other promotions grew up watching pro wrestling. As a result, they developed favorite wrestlers just like regular fans.

Additionally, when wrestlers retire, many of them continue to watch and stay invested in the product. Thus, they tend to find themselves picking up favorites in the modern era as well, and it can be interesting who those favorites are.

Here are eight WWE legends and their favorites, some from the past and some from the current programming.

#8 Chris Jericho - Cheeseburger

Slide 8 / 8

Listed at 5-fot-8 and about 140 pounds, it would be hard to predict that Cheeseburger would be destined to be anyone’s favorite wrestler. But his entertainment value and the commitment Ring of Honor has shown to giving him fun spots in big matches helps him stay relevant for fans and legends alike.

Recently on Twitter, Chris Jericho displayed that drawing power when he answered a fan’s question that Cheeseburger was his favorite, even asking if there was any merchandise available.

And when the “Ayatollah of RocknRollah” asks for merch, he should definitely get it!
