The yearly list that means nothing. Due to the fact they go on storylines and not wrestling ability. Even storyline wise it doesn't make sense. Christian as never been pinned or submitted. But he is only 12, whilst jobber Rey is 6 places higher. Lesnar wrestled only a handful of times in Japan. Against piss poor wrestlers before he got the belt taken off him. How he is so high is baffling. Miz is apparently better than Kennedy and Foley. I think PWI should think long and hard as to how they come to their conclusions. The top two shouldn't be anywhere near the top of the food chain.

The fact that there were only 5 Brits in there took the piss for me. The last 40 or so was just somebody going through EWR and writing names down, I'm sure. No Adam Windsor again is a joke.

I think we should put together our own list. Anyone interested could put together a list of 50 - 100 wrestlers and then maybe compare lists.
 
I for one think these lists are shat and I know I could do better. Anyone interested??

A "Peeps Top 20" list would be cool. Everyone can name an allotted amount of superstars from allover the world of wrestling. Then whoever gets mentioned the most gets put into a order. Some people here don't understand kayfabe. But i reckon between most of us we would have a fantastic list of 20 shit hot superstars. Mainly because we would go on none kayfabe matters. We would go on things that matter like ability, and persona. Not how many trophies won, and how popular someone is. If someone wishes to make a thread on this with rules then you can do in this section. Even if it's just one line, do explain why your picking each of your ten (or however many) superstars.

6. Chris Benoit 
7. Jushin "Thunder" Liger

How does ability and persona matter more than popularity? Popularity is the only thing that matters. Les Thonrton had all the talent in the world, but he's not the top wrestler in WWF/E history.
