The Best Black Wrestlers Of All Time

The following is a list of the best Black wrestlers in the history of professional wrestling (or "sports entertainment" for those of you too young to remember anything that took place before John Cena). Through the years the WWF, WCW, and now WWE has seen many Black athletes leave an indelible mark on the wrestling industry. Superstars that have paved the way like the "Big Cat" Ernie Ladd, Divas that pushed the pace and raised the bar like Jacqueline, and once in a lifetime trailblazers like The Rock.

Whether they're most well known for their singles career or their tag-team career up in the "big leagues", namely WWE/WWF or WCW, the only requirement for this list of topflight African-American wrestlers is that they were great. That they told tremendous stories in the ring. That wrestling (sports entertainment) wouldn't be the same without them.
