The 50 most beautiful people in sports-entertainment history re-ranked - #8 Roman Reigns (WWE.Com)

Remember that early episode of “Total Divas” where Eva Marie and JoJo had a minor freak-out when they ran into Roman Reigns in the gym? Right then you could’ve tagged the 2015 Royal Rumble Match winner as WWE’s next big thing, because what other guy could intimidate a roomful of dudes while making Maxim models go weak in the knees just by showing up? Reigns is a rare breed, the kind of performer who can have a faceoff with Brock Lesnar or a walk-on as a reality show heartthrob and appear just as convincing in each. Believe that.

#18 The Shield

If you were a Superstar who stepped into the ring against The Shield between 2012 and 2014, you knew you were probably going to lose. If you were the WWE Universe tuning into a Shield match during that same time, you knew you were about to get a master class from three young upstarts who didn’t care what the rules were, or whatever “top guy” of the day was standing in their path.

To the collective of Dean Ambrose, Seth Rollins & Roman Reigns, every Superstar was simply a body waiting to be Triple Powerbombed into the mat, every potential victory a statement that had yet to be stamped and every crowd just believers waiting to be converted. There’s a reason they didn’t take a true blue loss for almost a year: Nobody, outside of outrageous circumstance or baffling good luck, could manage to beat them. And yes, it’s a shame Rollins had to betray his brothers to fast-track his own rise to the top, but there’s also a certain kind of logic to it. For these three marauders, there were truly no worlds left to conquer. — ANTHONY BENIGNO

#9 Dean Ambrose

After spending the entire year relentlessly fighting for the right to carry a WWE championship around his waist, Dean Ambrose finally succeeded at WWE TLC when he defeated Kevin Owens for the Intercontinental Championship.

Obviously, winning one of WWE’s most prestigious titles is a good way to make it on this list, but ultimately it’s the unstable Superstar’s consistency that got him here. You read that correctly … “consistency.” Night in and night out, The Lunatic Fringe delivered his wildly entertaining brand of chaos, making him one of WWE’s most popular and dependable competitors.  As a result, 2015 will go down as the year Dean Ambrose made crazy the new cool. — SCOTT TAYLOR

Okay, so Dean Ambrose is probably the last guy you’d want to see pulling up in front of your house to take your sister out for the night (considering the car would most likely be stolen and your sister wouldn’t make it back for a day or two). Still, it’s hard to deny the bad boy allure of WWE’s most unpolished Superstar. With his unkempt hair and shredded jeans, Ambrose constantly looks like he overslept and had to rush to get wherever he’s going, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t look good doing it.

The 50 coolest maneuvers of all time - #46 Roman Reigns’ Superman Punch (WWE.Com)

A close-fisted punch in a WWE match usually garners an admonishment — almost always unheeded — from the referee. However the rule book goes out the window when Roman Reigns lands his breathtaking Superman Punch. A jumping, cross-body right hand delivered with phenomenal impact, the blow is made all the more devastating by the incredible torque generated by The Shield member’s 250-pound frame. John Cena, Sheamus and Big E have all been flattened by a hit so impactful it would rival the power of George Foreman in his prime. What makes this move even more frightening? Even if an opponent is somehow able to avoid the strike, they still have to worry about a Roman Reigns spear that can rearrange the organs of any Superstar today. — ANDY SEIFE
