    Kana/Asuka

    Feels odd this one hasn’t been bumped up, as she has to be a high contender for wrestlers who the last 5 years in WWE has been a major net positive. Whenever she’s been put in a major role it feels like she’s succeeded at doing something cool, and she had a solid career predating her WWE run too. I had her on my list last time and I’d be very surprised if she isn’t on it again.

    Johnny Gargano

    I am dumping this one up because of the absolutely fascinating rise and fall of Gargano in the last 5 years. His evolution from tag team ace in the best tag team feud the WWE ever produced, to Sami Zayn level NXT pure babyface, his outstanding match with Andrade, his huge first match with Ciampa had many singing his praises. He felt unarguable. And then he completely, imo, fell off a cliff since then. The Ciampa feud fell off the rails, he got absorbed in the seeming Hunter/HBK style of mindless epics that fall flat, and how he’s just kind of the king of the midcard guy. I have never had a wrestler go from one of my favorites to least favorites so horrifically quickly based just on in ring work. He has the highs to make the case but I just don’t see it as present.

    Speaking Out and Ranking Wrestlers

    For me personally, while I do wish wrestling had a cleaner past, it simply doesn’t and there isn’t a great way to differentiate and draw a line past what makes me uncomfortable to watch. And it’s not always as straight forward as “these are awful people” for me. For me personally when you decide you are going to deep dive into old wrestling footage you are signing a big of a social agreement that you are going to be watching people who were probably awful entertain you, no matter what style or company you are watching. I was able to watch Buck Zumhofe matches and outside of some off hand comments about how much I’d like to see someone stiff the shit out of him, I got through the match fine. There are only 2 wrestlers I think I’m completely eliminating due to person shit: Benoit (because every time I watch him I feel like I’m watching a new concussion that helped led to what happened happening) and Quackenbush (Which is personal as one of the people vocal about Quack during speaking out happened to be my best friend of 15 years)

    El Mesias/Ricky Banderas//Mil Muertes

    Bumping this one up because I’m curious if there is anything that’s really popped up for him post Lucha Underground that’s been standout. He made my list last time but I haven’t followed him much since.

    Like how they are working with the triple threat formula.

    I wonder when that Spear to the Outside spot won't feel good god damned crazy.

    I wonder if they will use this as a means to have Riddle start being more serious. The post match staredown was pretty good.

    Top Rope Knee Drop to the Chest looking better then most 450's. Fucking Christ that Brogue Kick looked great. Sheamus rules.

    Sheamus has been really good for a long time, he's really graduated to being one of the very best guys they have in recent times.

    Sheamus has been so fucking great lately and Riddle is so obnoxious I hope this match goes shorter then the Sheamus/Bryan Mania match.
