Top Rope Press Pro Wrestling Power Rankings: Where Do Your Favorite Wrestlers Rank?

Each and every week, Top Rope Press will bring you the Top Ten contenders to each promotion’s respective World Championship. Much like how ESPN and other sports sites rank teams and individuals, we have our writers rank each roster (in full) 1 – 10, with each first place vote getting 10 points, each second 9 points, and so on down to a 10th place receiving 1 point. After that, we total them up to get our final rankings.

Each week, we’ll do it all again. When you see a number in parentheses (2), it will indicate where that wrestler ranked last week so you can see if they moved up or down [or a (–) if its their debut]. Come back each week to see where your favorites from each of the major promotions ranks and sound off in our comment section to let us know what you think we got right and where we went wrong!

We’ve now added in a Women’s ranking, focused solely on the WWE and NXT rosters. We are aware of other women’s promotions and the fact that companies like TNA have a Knockouts Division. We chose to focus on the supposed leaders of the #DivasRevolution based on the idea that these women wrestlers get the most national exposure.

*Editor’s Note: Lucha Underground will be joining our rankings once the next season begins.
