* For the five year average, some wrestlers were unranked in previous years, giving them a score of 501. In parenthesis is the average if the unranked years are eliminated.

**All stats processed thru top 50.

The top three is garbage.


    26.Mesias


Is this some Mesias from another land? It's not the TNA guy, right?


Carlito at #63, Festus at #106 ... wild

Remember, this is Kayfabe. For example, Orton was champ for half of the year, and beat every opponent put in front of him.

Similarly, Festus has been beating everyone not Undead.

Same Mesias. He's a big deal in Mexico (AAA, I believe).

    492. Larry Zbyszko


Ummm, what? When the hell has he wrestled in the last year? And where, for that matter? Surely they're not counting convention shows, are they?

EDIT: Also, no Robbie Brookside? You've got Tom fucking Brandi, but not Robbie Brookside? This list is shit, man...

Zbyszko is the AWA Superstars of Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion. I can't tell if he's actually won a match since being appointed champion or not.

oh no, I didn't want to do any work tonight.

Mesias is indeed in AAA and was their champ for the first third of the year (and for the last third of '07), so that's what that is.

>429.Mega

A US guy? A Japanese guy? I ask because there's a Mexican with that name who's used to be a low level name but is so minor now it's implausible.

Leono is at least 12 spots too high.

Another year, another top 10 with two guys I don't know. (McGuinness and Nakamura, for those that care.) Surprised Orton's #1, let alone that high. It always bothered me that WWE never used the PWI500 to start feuds. WCW had some wrestlers at least mention their placing back in the day.

That's something I never understood about PWI back in the day. Rankings were supposed to be based on wins and losses, but they always ranked Flair (who rarely won, and had his title saved by run-ins on a nightly basis) ahead of Hogan (who beat everyone clean). Even as a stupid kid, I could see that Flair was a better technical wrestler and I knew his matches were more fun to watch than Hogan's, but there was no denying Hogan's far superior win/loss record which PWI seemingly refused to acknowledge.

And nowadays, it's weird looking at a PWI when it's sort of this weird work/shoot hybrid. From what I can tell, they never fully acknowledge that it's a work, but there's all this talk of "storylines" and "writers" and "angles" and it's SO WEIRD. Where is Matt Brock? I want articles written by an old drunk in a cheap hotel room, on a typewriter that has been carried from town to town (by train, whenever possible).

These kids today with their internets and their Meltzers don't know what they're missing.

People I know...

156. Delirious
215. Evan Bourne
449. Jeremy Wyatt

Wish more Midwest guys would have made it...shocked Dingo missed the cut, he's had a breakout year(holding the IWA Mid-South title as well as the NWA Missouri belt). Also wish Michael Strider would have made it...hopefully working for Harley Race's fed will improve his visibility.

I haven't looked at a PWI in many years. But I used to love Matt Brock's columns as a kid. I was not surprised but somewhat deflated when in an email from former writer Ed Emelett (may be misspelling his name) about 11 years ago he revealed that crusty old reporter Matt Brock never existed. The writers took turns being "Matt Brock". But Eddie Ellner was a real guy.

Wikipedia says: "Likewise, columnist Liz Hunter is fictitious, as are oft-quoted WWF/WWE "inside source" Thomas Pilliard and "wrestling psychologist" Dr. Sidney M. Basil." The latter two are obvious, even to me as a 12 year old.

Awesome Kong will bludgeon you for that.

So know that we have stats, has anyone taken the time to see who the top movers and shakers were moving up or down the charts?

last night at the chikara show, someone yelled "#497 in the PWI 500" at Worker Ant and he said, "yeah, I had to pay for that spot."

I'm off today, what the heck.
The following were in the top 120 last year, and aren't in this year's chart:
Bobby Lashley, Rob Van Dam, Gregory Helms, Marcus Cor Von, Yoshinari Ogawa, Vampiro, The Boogyeman, Jeff Jarrett.

Big Fallers include Chris Harris (from 66 to 190), Tiger Mask IV (from 69 to 207), L.A. Park (from 69 to 212), Chris Masters (from 89 to 223), Low-Ki/Senshi (from 50 to 227), La Parka (from 43 to 249), Sabu (from 58 to 250), Kevin Thorn (from 94 to 316), and Doug Williams (from 84 to 347)

The following were not ranked in last years chart (as far as I can tell-many are Japanese and Mexican, and may be listed under a different name) and are in the top 150 this year:
Chris Jericho, Suwama, JBL, Rey Mysterio Jr., Chuck Palumbo, Orlando Colon, Kofi Kingston, Alan Stone, Kenta Kobashi, Tyler Black, Masato Tanaka, El Condor, Wataru Inoue, Blue Demon Jr., Blitz, Matt Morgan, Black Reign, Mr. Niebla, and Joe Doering.

Other top risers include Mesias (from 206 last year [as Muerte Cibernetica] to 26 this year), Shinsuke Nakamura (from 96 to 10), Triple H (from 51 to 3), and Keiji Muto (from 119 to 16).
Interestingly, Nick Dinsmore rose from 190 to 101, after getting fired from the WWE and moving down to the indy level.

I also find it amusing that certain people find themselves ranked together two years in a row. In 2007, Snitsky was 130, and Togi Makabe was 131. This year, Snitsky falls to 134, and Makabe falls to 135. I feel there's someone at PWI who lobbies for Makabe's inclusion at Snitsky's level.

Or the plight of tag teams. Last year Brother Ray was 74 and Brother Devon was 80. This year Brother Ray is 78 and Brother Devon is 82. So PWI thinks that Brothey Ray is always a little bit better.

I guess I am not to sure that Orton actually has "IT". Sure, he is a big man, who can toss some other big men around, but that isn't what it is all about anymore. Someone needs to buy the kid a personality!
