The WWE Universe got many superstars who went out of the box to entertain the fans.

When it comes to a major fanbase and successful career, Hulk Hogan and The Rock have proved their worth.

 

Hulk Hogan was the company’s face for over a decade during the “Golden Age Era”, with many epic showdowns and title runs. He also made his name in other wrestling federations, too.

The other mega superstar was The Rock, who made his debut in 1996. Although he wasn’t successful in the beginning, he grabbed the spotlight in the Attitude Era, becoming The People’s Champ.

His rivalry with Stone Cold Steve Austin was one of the best in the Attitude Era. The Rock had a brief run in WWE until he changed his focus and shifted to Hollywood. Today, he makes guest appearances in WWE.

The 16-time champ is one of the biggest and most successful WWE Superstars. He has given a lot of epic matches in WWE history and drove the company to new heights.
