Hear the phrase "WWE veteran", and you probably think of Undertaker, Triple H and Chris Jericho, and perhaps to a slightly lesser extent John Cena and Randy Orton.
If WWE had a canteen where the wrestlers eat their lunch together, then these five would probably sit at a table separated from everyone else by a stanchion, manned by a pair of burly security guards who are instructed to turn away everyone whose last name isn't McMahon.
But, after that, there's another group comprised of employees who have been on the company's payroll just slightly over a decade. They're not quite at the point where they can sit with the cool kids, granted, but they've earned the grudging respect of their elders through years of hard work.
Included in this group are the likes of Sheamus, The Miz and Dolph Ziggler, wrestlers who began appearing on TV in the mid-to-late 2000s and whose veteran status isn't likely to arouse any surprise. However, you may be a little shocked to find out who else is sitting at this table...
Note: we're only including wrestlers whose WWE tenures have been continuous and uninterrupted. Those who left briefly and then came back (looking at you, Nikki Bella) don't count.
