The website of Pro Wrestling Illustrated has posted the cover of their October ("PWI 500") issue - so we now we all know early who's their #1 for this year...


Here's a link to their blog post behind their choice (

(Hat tip to PWI and @BackoftheHead)

The issue hits newstands August 16, but if this year is anything like last year, name blocks of 100 will be posted to their blog right around that date as well. We'll be sure to duly cut and paste for the archives.

Jericho on Twitter has been making fun of Miz for dropping this on twitter. Its at least better than Cena being number one.

The Wee Baby Sheamus.

Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.

The Miz sounds like a fair choice for #1. Between June 2010 and May 2011 he had a run as United States Champion, coached a successful NXT rookie, won Money in the Bank, won the WWE Title, and went on to win the main event at Wrestlemania. The biggest black mark against him was the amount of trouble he had fighting Lawler.

Of the other likely WWE contenders, Cena was only Champion for about a month, Kane was only successful against Rey and a weakened Undertaker, and Sheamus' reign was largely helped by being in the right place at the right time during Nexus attacks.

Orton on the other hand had two successful reigns, and is worth considering. He presumably was hurt in the rankings by Miz defeating him on several prominent occasions. Edge's reigns were fairly dominant as well (not to mention he was a surviving victorious member of the Smackdown team at Bragging Rights, and his team was also victorious against the Nexus at Summerslam). Its harder to argue that his year was less spectacular than The Miz's.

On the TNA side, RVD was rather unstoppable as Champion, but had a weak year after his injury. Sting was out of action for too long. Jeff Hardy was having a good year before becoming Champion, and was the centerpiece of TNA during his reign. It looks like he was penalized by PWI for how badly he did in his match with Sting, and the time he took off afterwards.

Not a whole lot of note this week, as is usual for Smackdown these days. Ambrose had a pretty nice promo where he said that he and Wyatt aren't Norse gods fighting in a big Ragnarok, he's a gutter rat and a dog who likes to fight.
