How about Hulk Hogan, whom with his multiple WrestleMania main events helped WWF to reach its business pinnacle back in the 80s? Or Stone Cold Steve Austin, who embodied WWF "Attitude Era"'s fever pitch popularity? Or perhaps it should be The Undertaker himself, of whom clean slate records of undefeated streak in WrestleMania, 17-0, have been the stuffs of legend?
