An industry built on the intricacies of physical movement, muscular perfection and storytelling through action, wrestling is always going to be defined by aesthetics. The look of a wrestler often determines their future success, with a generic performer often being far less successful than someone more aesthetically invigorating.
There are plenty of cool wrestlers in the world, but what about the workers and presences that look immediately badass? These are the people that from the first second they appear on the entrance ramp, you just know that they’re important and could kick the ass of just about anyone in their ways.
There are varying ways to look badass as this list will prove, but the commonality between all these men and women is a distinctive edge and overwhelming confidence. All of these people project as stars, and have the capability to wow fans of all ages with their intensity, phenomenal entrances and ring gear and most importantly, that immediate look of destruction that can forge a star.
A few honourable mentions before getting into the list properly, Thunder Rosa’s face paint is insanely cool and makes her look unstoppable, Drew McIntyre’s chiselled physique makes him look like a Greek god and Brodie Lee currently has an otherworldly aura of chaos around him. All of these and so many others are badass looking, but these are the ones who stand above the rest...
