WWE’s 10 greatest heroes

“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” — Joseph Campbell, author of “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”

Regardless of how you define what it means to be a hero, we can all agree that such individuals represent a righteous ideal — setting an example to live by and believe in. Himself earning global admiration as the principled “People’s Champ,” The Rock aims to impart his virtue as the host of TNT’s reality series “The Hero,” which tests the strength, courage and integrity of nine contestants in a life-changing competition.

In honor of his latest effort in the name of nobility, The Great One joins nine other heroic Superstars on WWE.com’s assemblage of ring warriors who have inspired generations of WWE fans through their valiant actions and honorable victories.
