List of current best wrestlers in the world (All companies)
I have been recently watching some NJPW and ROH shows and i thought why not? Whats your guys list? This can be a combination of charisma and wrestling skills or just your personal favorites.
Here is my top 40 wrestlers currently. (I might miss some guys because i dont watch very much indy stuff mostly wwe thats why the list is filled mostly with wwe guys so dont hate it because of that)
40-Hideo itami 39.Jason jordan 38.Roderick strong 37. Alberto el patron 36. Mike Bennett 35.OKADA 34.Will ospray 33.Marty scurll 32.Bully Ray 31.Baron corbin 30.Cody rhodes 29.Eric Young 28.Adam cole (BAYBAY) 27.Cesaro 26.Chad gable 25.tommaso ciampa 24.Seth rollins 23.Kevin owens 22.The brian kendrick 21.sami zayn
TOP 20 :
20.matt hardy 19.zack sabre jr 18.Y2J 17.Johny wrestling 16.samoa joe 15.Neville 14.Braun strowman 13.Kota ibushi 12.Jeff hardy 11.Bray wyatt 10.Tye dillinger (10.10.10) 9.Naito 8.Austin aries 7.Bobby roode 6.Finn balor 5.Miz 4.kenny omega 3.Dolph ziggler 2.NAKAMURA 1.AJ styles
Now people are going to be like this list sucks okada is way better then baron corbin or dolph ziggler at #3? i havent seen much of some of these guys people love but from what i seen i can stick them in my top 40. and if theres something you dont see chances are i never seen them wrestle. As for ziggler being #3 he has been one of my favorites from the beginning and i stick with my guys whether there beating treated as a jobber or not.
So what are your guys list you dont need to give me 40 top 10 top 20 whatever works for you.
Jesus Christ... Your list is all over the shop. I know they say opinions can't be wrong... But this one most certainly is.
^^^^ Yeah it is all over the shop like my post stated because i just started getting into indy wrestling. So i expected a few responses like that but if its so wrong wheres your top 10? Maybe the title is alittle misleading its not just based on pure wrestling skills but a combination of that charisma and favoritism. I know guys like okada kota ibushi and zack sabre are top 10 to top 5 wrestlers but the charisma isnt all there now is it?
So you're pretty much just asking us for a list of favorites then, because a list of the "best" would be based on monetary value, and can be reduced to an extremely short list containing Lesnar, Cena, Reigns, and maybe Okada, Styles, and Orton.
In ring ability is completely subjective. The OP mentioned Ziggler. I think he's trash, but I'm not going to knock anyone that likes him personally. Reigns is a favorite of mine, and plenty of fans choose to dislike the guy for whatever reasons.
I would probably say my current favorites would be [in no order]...
- Samoa Joe
- The Revival
- The New Day
- The Hardy's
I primarily watch WWE. I don't watch NXT or hardly anything from the Indy's or Japan. If anyone were to ask, "well why do you like those guys?" Simply put, they are interesting and fun to watch.
If you don't think that Okada is one of the most naturally charismatic performers in the world, then I'm not sure what Kazuchika Okada you've been watching.
I do think that you need to revise the title idea for this post. It clearly is asking for people's lists of favorites and personal preference guys, as opposed to asking who people feel are actually the world's best wrestlers.
Okada and Ziggler issues aside, your list lost any sort of credibility it might have when you put Dillinger as #10 solely to make a 'TEN!' joke. You even said that the list was based on favoritism over wrestling ability. You can't make a list of the "best of" something without being objective about it, otherwise it's just a list of your favorites.
Take me and Okada, for instance. He doesn't even crack into my top 10 as far as favorites is concerned. But looking at him objectively, he's easily top 3 in the world right now (toss up between him, Omega and Styles). On the other hand, you can take someone like Taichi, who is probably in my top 25 favorites list just because of his antics and how much he pisses people off with them. But put him in a list of "Greatest Wrestlers"? I doubt he cracks the top 200.
Now, since this thread has already been established to be a "list your favorites" one, I guess I will. I haven't watched WWE since Royal Rumble 2013, so all of my list is based off their work outside of the company (if they've joined it since then), or their work in and outside of the company if they were with it before I stopped watching. I'm also excluding guys that are primarily tag wrestlers because this list is hard enough to make as is (Sorry Bucks)
20. Minoru Suzuki
19. Hiromu Takahashi
18. Tomohiro Ishii
17. Naomichi Marufuji
16. Kurt Angle
15. Hiroshi Tanahashi
14. Zack Sabre Jr
13. Adam Cole
12. Kazuchika Okada
11. Finn Balor
10. Katsuyori Shibata
9. Marty Scurll
8. Kota Ibushi
7. Veda Scott
6. Tetsuya Naito
4. Kevin Owens
3. AJ Styles
2. Shinsuke Nakamura
1. Kenny Omega
This is the first time that all of my favorites are now inactive or only appear in Hall Of Famer / Legend guest roles.
Stone Cold Steve Austin in 2002
The Rock in 2013
Kurt Angle in 2017
Ric Flair in 2011
Hulk Hogan in 2012
And now once again, Chris Jericho, probably for only a short period of time.
Because of this, I'm going to go with the SuperStars with the Gold and Silver and leather. From number 1, Brock Lesnar to number 13, Tyler Bate and every Champion in between. That's how I rank them. I should note that I only watch the WWE Network and some Global Impact Wrestling.
There's only about seven that I enjoy watching right now:
7. Baron Corbin
6. The Miz (for his promos only)
5. Nia Jax
3. Braun Strowman
2. Samoa Joe
1. BROCK Lesnar
Overall exposure. If you asked somebody who dolph ziggler is chances are they know. same with cody rhodes. ask somebody about okada and they probably wont. thats literally the only reason i put him where he is that and i only seen a hand full of his matches.
