The internet is an interesting animal where a person can become well known, sometimes outwardly famous, for a variety of reasons. Some become platinum album selling artists (Justin Bieber) while others become the butt of countless jokes for what they did (Star Wars Kid), yet what remains constant is that these people achieve a level of notoriety because of something they did online. In some instances these people become a meme which is a joke template that accentuates the absurd within a given situation or part of a person’s life as well as exaggerate tropes within pop culture and can be made of any person or situation.
Wrestling is not exempt from memes and over the years quite a few have been made based on things that have happened to a performer or an exaggeration of a performer’s personality, most of which can be found at memegene.net. The reason that they work so well is because the targeted audience of the memes, wrestling fans, can quickly see the humor in the situation and enjoy it without feeling like the joke is on them as fans. So with that in mind I have ranked some of the best pro wrestling memes online. For this list I limited to memes that were directly tied to wrestling (so no Rock Driving Meme in Witch Mountain) and only photo memes were considered (so no RKO Vine Remixes or David Flair style titantron videos). The memes were ranked on how much they were used, how well they use the material that they are based on, and how funny they are, though to be fair these are all pretty well done and funny.
So please read, enjoy, and let us know what you think down in the comments section. How would you have ranked these differently? Are there other memes that you felt should have made the list or that one of the entries should be ranked differently?

9 10. Kevin Nash Adjective
8 9. Scumbag Vince
7 8. Out of Touch Vince
If there has been one thing that Vince McMahon has been accused of being more than anything over the last few years it is that he is out of touch with his fanbase. The Out of Touch Vince meme takes this defect to the next level where it makes Vince to be out of touch with more than just wrestling.
6 7. Scumbag Promoter
5 6. Shockmaster
4 5. Teddy Long Loves Tag Matches
3 4. Lonely Virgil
2 3. Shocked Undertaker Guy
1 2. Jeritroll
One thing fans have continually railed against John Cena for is his apparent ability to take a gigantic beating before amping himself up and beating his opponent with little effort as well as him somehow finding himself in main event angles despite not holding a title or even going after a title. So the Super Cena and Scumbag Cena share a spot at number one for the jokes used and that they have been combined many times. With jokes ranging from how Cena dies but still wins the match to having a Survivor Series team but not helping them when they are attacked by The Authority, the jokes hit on a lot of the hostility fans have towards the face of the WWE.
