The road to Summerslam 1993 saw Yokozuna and Mr Fuji challenging all of America to put down the 500 lbs Samoan. In one of the most famous segments in WWE history, Lex Luger arrived on the U.S.S. Intrepid on a helicopter, ready to take the challenge.

In an incredible display of strength, Luger managed to do the unthinkable, and bodyslammed Yokozuna to the mat. Luger instantly became an American hero who was going to rid us of the Samoan, but the plans didn't come to fruition and Bret Hart ended up being the one to do the job at WrestleMania X.

WrestleMania 3 was built around the David vs Goliath encounter between Hulk Hogan and Andre The Giant, in front of a record-breaking crowd.

As 93,000 fans watched in disbelief, Hulk Hogan picked up The 8th Wonder of the World and bodyslammed him onto the mat at WrestleMania 3. Hogan followed it up by delivering a thunderous leg drop on Andre and retaining the WWE title in one of the most memorable moments in the history of the show.

Andre was bodyslammed on multiple occasions before WrestleMania 3, but the immense coverage this event garnered made sure that this would be the slam that would be heard around the world.

WrestleMania 25 is remembered for possibly the greatest match in all of wrestling, The Undertaker vs Shawn Michaels. But people haven't forgotten two memorable moments John Cena gave us in Texas that night.

Cena had one of the most amazing entrances in history, with a crowd of Cena look-alikes surrounding him as he made his way to the ring.

As the gruelling triple threat match was about to end, Cena left people gasping when he lifted both The Big Show and Edge, and delivered the biggest FU of all time! Cena had lifted giants on his back in the past like The Big Show and The Great Khali, but lifting two grown men at once was something no one imagined Cena could do. Cena ended up winning the whole thing and became the Heavyweight Champion of the World.

The build-up to a marquee match between The Undertaker and Kurt Angle at No Way Out 2006 saw The Phenom pick up Mark Henry and proceed to tombstone him in the middle of the ring. A stupefied Kurt Angle watched The Undertaker do the unthinkable, and the look on Angle's face told the entire story. The Deadman has been known for his incredible athleticism and strength, but this was something no one expected him to do, considering Henry's massive size and weight.

The Monster Among Men is well known for his incredible strength. During a storyline which saw the giant getting fired by Kurt Angle, we got to see what Strowman was capable of.

An irate Strowman proceeded to enter a production truck and hound the WWE employees. He soon moved out and the truck crew breathed a sigh of relief.

Suddenly, the truck began moving on its own. To Kurt Angle's horror, Strowman lifted the truck from the side and went on to demolish it in a mind-boggling scene which has to be seen to be believed.

This wasn't the first time Strowman caused damage to this proportion. The heavyweight has destroyed an ambulance in another occasion, and once went on to drop a set stage on an unconscious Brock Lesnar and Kane.

Both occasions received thunderous ovations from the WWE Universe.

The Big Show was known as The Giant back in WCW. He was billed as being Andre The Giant's son, when he debuted in the company.

At the peak of The Attitude Era, Goldberg had become one of the most popular Superstars in both WCW and WWE. On an episode of Monday Nitro in 1998, the fans roared in unison as Goldberg faced off against The Giant in a marquee match.

After slugging it out for a while, the match neared its end.

No one believed that it could happen, but Goldberg managed to lift The Giant on his shoulders, keep him at the same position for a second, and then drop him to the mat to a thunderous sea of cheers.

The crowd couldn't believe what they had just seen. This is widely regarded as the greatest feat of strength a wrestler has ever displayed.


What are your views on this list? Did Goldberg deserve the no. 1 spot? If not, then who is worthy enough to take his place? Sound off!
