What the.. Heath Slater and Kevin Nash make the top 100 but Wade Barrett doesn't... nice list.

Nash over Steen. Kofi Kingston over Davey Richards? PWI is clearly filled with marks/

"Brandi" doesn't exist. "she" was a made up character.

Jason Pozarowski said...

Heath Slater but no Wade Barrett? makes no sense guys....come on, do your due dilgence

eric said...

i didnt see wade barret? either i missed it or this list is retarted cuz love him or hate him the dude is a rookie making more noise then pretty much anyone on the raw roster

Wade Barrett is # 109

Where is Buck Zumoffe? He is still one of the most active "oldtimers" out there!

This list sucks in the top 10 are 6wwe crap superstars, the only of course that is worth of been in the top 10 is CM PUNK and AJ STYLES as one in the year that is not a top star in TNA come on, whats next in 2011 the number one is going to be HULK HOGAN

I'm very happy that a TNA star (THE TNA star) just hit the top of the PWI 500 !! TNA is a great compagny, that offer intense shows ! Much better and more authentic wrestling that WWE...close to japanese one, even with Bishoff and Hogan in it :)

How are the likes of Yoshi Tatsu, Rob Terry and Dr. Wagner above Kane? Makes no sense to me!

But as a big AJ Styles fan, I am happy that FINALLY, he grabs the number one spot!

Where is HBK? Unless his limited amount of matches contributed him not being on the list.

I'm a little annoyed by an incorrect stat you guys put in the magazine.. in the not listed section it lists Ryan Cruz(partner of Darin Corbin in Northstar Express) but than in the 500 he's listed as Ryan Kruz.. in the section of not listed it doesn't say he had a name change or anything of that matter but just that he wasn't listed.. but he is.. and with an incorrect spelling of his name...

Yeah TNA does rock, and their knockouts division is pretty much the only thing keeping the ladies at the forefronts of the industry. Good thing you put their stars on top of your list.

I generally make it a point to check out the annual PWI500, and despite the fact that the order is sometimes questionable, I think the list is a great barometer of pro wrestling's present state. I would however like to see more talent being represented from the four corners region, such as Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Arizona and even Nevada. There is a lot of talent in the area that is getting overlooked due to geographical location.

FINALLY GO AJ!!!! He is the best and this just proves it!!!

To the anonymous poster above,

Yoshi Tatsu definitely belongs higher than Kane. Maybe the Kane of the Attitude Era belonged in the Top 50, but 2010 Kane? Don't get me wrong, he's still really good, but watch any recent Yoshi Tatsu match and tell me Kane deserves to be higher.

Shawn micheals should have @ least been in the top 20. His match alone with the undertaker should of have gotten him that.

you put JTG higher than Ezekiel Jackson. Heath Slater is higher than Wade Barrett. Undertaker is lower than Jericho. And The Miz is higher than Big Show, mysterio, Edge, Rob Van Dam, Jeff Haedy, and many more superstars who could beat the Miz easly
