All right, it's been out almost a week over at their blog (prowrestlingillustrated.blogspot.com); it's about time I formatted it up for us to discuss.

As usual, I have added value by running the names against last year's list and then trying to catch the name changes the script wouldn't have. (If you see somebody unranked for 2010 who SHOULD have a ranking, let me know and it'll get corrected. I have only gone through the top 200 as I type this but will do a more thorough audit after I'm able to go buy my own newstand copy... hopefully next time I'm at the grocery store)

I'll also do a more thorough list of notable folks who didn't make the list this year. We'll start with last year's #5 (Chris Jericho), #6 (Batista) and #8 (The Undertaker).

I ALSO know that putting this up the night of SummerSlam isn't the best of timing, but we can talk about it in a few days if if it makes you feel better.

I don't think there's any bigger surprise on this list than Kane jumping from 79 to 4. He really did step up in the last year with the best mic work of his career, but it really is a shame that his matches with UT and Edge couldn't live up to the high profile title reign. Hell, the feud with UT ended up ruining the poor guy in the end, considering that no one's ever spoken of that feud again. (Why DID the Nexus help bury UT alive, anyway? Remember when Otunga threatened to reveal Barrett's REAL reason for involving the Nexus in that match, but we never found out what that reason was? UNSOLVED MYSTERIES!)

Ultimo Dragon's #23 from the depths of obscurity? Where IS Dragon these days?

I'm surprised ADR jumped so high without winning a title. Or did he clean up in belts before he hit the WWE?

Jerry Lawler makes it back onto the list! and Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan are off it.

I am always amazed that there are even this many people making money at pro wrestling.

- Not sure how Samoa Joe stays in the top 50.

- R-Truth was either rated too high last year or not high enough this year. Only moving up four spots from last year seems a little light.

- Orlando Jordan moves up 53 spots?

Not in the last year. I'm guessing his position is in good part for winning the Royal Rumble. All the more reason to be disappointed Santino didn't win. :(

Zorro is a wrestler from AAA who was their top champion for part of the PWI year. See: a 2009 match vs X-Pac.

Ultimo Dragon has wrestled in smaller Tokyo based promotions - Tajiri's SMASH promotion and the Real Japan group. He also promotes about 4 shows a year in Mexico (in theory for his school); one was this past weekend. And he travels to and wrestles in places like Cuba, Panama, and Ecuador.

Knowing all that, I still don't have any idea why he jumped up.

(just looking quick, Peter Orlov is the FCW name for Alex Koslov, and Jon Rekon is also Strong Man.)

Well I know for a fact that a few of these folks aren't.
