By far and away the biggest enemy of sharks are humans. Humans kill 73 million sharks every year,[1] mostly for shark fin soup, a delicacy to the Chinese diaspora.

In the wild, a few other animals can kill sharks, like a large crocodile.[2] Dolphins in groups have been known to chase away sharks,[3], but aren't really enemies. They only predator that could probably regularly take on a shark are Orcas (killer whales) that have been seen attacking Great White sharks,[4] but sharks don't appear to be regular prey.
