To me, someone who doesn't know much about the Japanese or Mexican scene, this list isn't very controversial. I guess Brock doing his IWGP thing must rank him pretty high, I mean, he was the IWGP champion which should count for something, right?

I have no idea who this Mistico guy is, but I'll just assume he's a really big deal.

Cena #1 is easy, Angle was so good WWE demoted and them fired him for it, and I think Rey rightfully belongs in the Top 10.

The only thing I'd dispute is that I'd put RVD over AJ Styles, since his DUI had enough of an impact where WWE had to reorganize their entire top tier because of him, but Jarrett should be the top TNA guy since he basically owns the entire fed. RVD had a really big impact this year, even if it was for a month.

Angle was world champ and lost the title without being pinned, then went to ECW briefly and beat people up. He only lost a couple times all year. Rey Mysterio suuuuuuuuuuucks and lost all his matches. He won the Rumble I guess.

Rey's reign was handled like crap, but he lasted longer as champ than anyone ever thought (at least, outlasting Cena) and won the title at a WrestleMania, which should count for something. You're right that his Rumble win was probably the most impressive thing he's done all year, though. He had the longest time in the ring, tossed HHH and Orton, and won from #2.

Also, if you're going on drawing power, Rey was easily (EASILY!) the second biggest draw on Smackdown behind Batista, even if his reign was booked pretty badly. I mean, kids love him and he makes them money.

CM Punk coming in at #35 seems way too high, and that's coming from one of his "marks." I mean, at the time this list was compiled, I imagine he'd probably JUST debuted on ECW and had wrestled primarily in OVW during the calendar year for the 500 (with the exception of that "surprise one-night return" he did in ROH that got Tommy Dreamer in trouble). I guess the line of reasoning would be that since OVW is WWE Developmental that it gets guys more weight than other promotions? *shrug*

Pardon my indy ignorance, but Kamikaze Kid (494) isn't Kid Mikaze, is it?

I would argue that before he started losing to everyone, Rey was even a bigger draw than Batista based on the quarterhours he did and the inexplicably not horrible buyrate for Judgment Day. But I would also argue that it's the PWI 500 so that really doesn't have much to do with Rey sucking at wrestling by losing all his matches.

Plus RVD was the WWE (biggest company right now) and (!) ECW champion this year! After defeating John Cena = #1 of that whole list!

I remember loving this issue when it came out back in the day, 2nd only to the big PWI awards issue. It seems way too kayfabe now, but I suppose if I can look past my many layers of online cynicism, a little kayfabe is not necessarily a bad thing.

Gregory Helms is #153? I figured that he would be way higher on the list due to his lengthy Cruiserweight champ reign & solid work over the past year.

Yeah...the lowest ranked wrestler I have heard of is Brian Christopher at #492.

But I have worked a few wrestling shows with Matt Riviera (#486) and he is a great guy.

    205 Bull Buchanan


B*squared still wrestles somewhere and does it well enough now to hit #205?

If that's the case where is Reno or Shawn O'Haire these days?

Bull Buchanan was/is in All Japan.

Sean O'Haire was in UPW as recently as March 2005. He had two dark matches with WWE in March. When he's not doing that, he seems to be participating in K-1 MMA matches.

Reno, of WCW fame, has apparently retired.

You also have to factor in loyality to the WWE in Terri's case.
