Across all grappling disciplines? Hard to answer.
For BJJ and submission grappling, Marcelo Garcia has to be up there, as well as Andre Galvao and Roger Gracie.
In Judo, it's said, "No one before [Masahiko] Kimura, none after"- he was regarded as one of the best to ever live.In Greco-Roman wrestling, Alexandre Karelin was unstoppable for about a decade and a half.In old-school Catch wrestling, you had guys like Frank Gotch, Fred Beall and John Pesek.
In American wrestling, Dan Gable is a legend.It's really hard to get a definitive "top ten" because the disciplines are so different. Karelin would probably get subbed by anyone in a submission grappling match, but NOBODY beats him in Greco, for example. But I've given you a few names of great grapplers in their respective arts to give you some ideas for further research on your own.
