New Episode of the Bored Wrestling Fan Podcast is now Online, click here to check out this week’s show

  • Jimmy

    Let the complaining begin that John Cena is above Daniel Bryan.

  • William

    This list is automatically a bunch of shit…where’s HIroshi Tanahashi? He only broke the record for most IWGP title defenses this year. PWI is an out dated, out moded, pile of kayfabe shit, that belongs with that idiot Bill Apter…in the garbage can of an abortion clinic. FTL.

  • DMorg

    jphn cena third? . . . fuck off, hard working and consistant yes but more interesting to watch in the ring than ziggler, rhodes and bryan i think not

  • The Truth

    Hunico beat Sin Cara and Chavo Guerrero

  • Steve

    Devon at #25 ahead of Bully Ray and Styles??? There’s a ton wrong about this list but that immediately jumped out at me….

  • The Original Jeff W.

    It doesn’t matter. This list is about accomplishments and how much the person is featured, not talent. The PWI ranks people based on the storyline aspects of wrestling as opposed to their actual wrestling ability.

  • Joseph

    I never understood this list. I always thought it was supposed to be the BEST wrestlers, yet Cena as #3? Fuck that shit.

  • Joseph

    How bad is it that Matt Hardy never even made the top 500?

  • Darren

    Dolph Ziggler behind Sheamus???
    Sheamus is one the worst faces ever, and Ziggler consistenly puts in entertaining matches, not to mention he sells like no one else.

  • Bane

    How in the world does Garett Bitchoff make the list, even in the 400′s that’s a joke. I can’t disagree with #1 CM PUNK, but overall the list is a JOKE. I know they don’t wrestle every week or for that matter once, twice, three or four, etc. times a year but HHH (whom I’m not a really a fan of because of his ego), Brock Lesnar, the Rock, and the freaking Undertaker deserve 2 b somehow on that list. Can’t b a top 500 list without these 4 (and I probably forgot some others) and the inclusion of Bitchoff’s kid, just can’t buy into him knowing he’s really only in TNA because of his dad who is in part responsible 4 the demise of TNA.

  • GunShark

    The Original Jeff W. has it right. It’s from more of a kayfabe perspective, than anything. You people are getting worked up over absolutely nothing.

  • Insanechip517

    THE BIG O!! #485… HE WILL BE #1 Next year!! #HerecomestheBigO
    and zack ryder will be right next to each other!! #Longislandbuddies

  • Matt

    This list is complete shit. I don’t know what PWI is going off of here, but it’s not wrestling ability. While I agree with CM Punk at #1 because I think he is the best wrestler in the world, there is pretty much nothing else right with this list. Otunga ahead of Tyson Kidd and Drew McIntyre? Otunga’s probably the worst in-ring wrestler in the WWE other than Great Khali and Hornswoggle. Cena, Henry, and Del Rio should be nowhere near top 10.

  • Nunzio Zurzolo

    PWI 500!!!
