Top 100 Wrestlers of 2017 (70-41)

Welcome to part 2 of our countdown. Part 1 can be found here.Today we look at numbers 70 to 41. Lets keep it snappy, here we go.



70. Chuck TaylorI could have picked many pictures for Chuckie T but that one seems to fit. He is one of the most fun wrestlers there is and his winning streak and eventual title win in PWG was superb. He also had a good run in the New Japan World Tag League with Best Friends tag partner Trent Baretta. 

69. Jay LethalLethal has been a consistently good performer for years and 2017 was no different. He was mostly away from the title picture in ROH, other than a loss to Christopher Daniels. He did have great matches against Cody, Silas Young and Marty Scurll in the company though.

68. Tommaso CiampaCiampa's injury could not have come at a worse time as he was white hot at the time, having just turned heel on tag partner Johnny Gargano. Even though he only wrestled for half a year, it was a hell of a 6 months. Well, 5 months. #DIY were incredible in the first h…

This Week In WWE

Another week of WWE is in the bag and this is some of what happened. 


Braun Strowman got fired for his expert grappling hook skills. He got his job back after destroying his place of business. There is a lesson to be learned here. While we are on the subject of Braun, he appears to have weird strength. He can flip over a semi truck but struggles a bit with a 180 pound announcer. Maybe Michael Cole has massive density.Braun likes cake.Titus Worldwide beat The Bar again. The only reason I can think of to do this is if they are having The Bar take the titles at the Rumble. It could literally be any reason though.The cruiserweights did something.Asuka beat Nia Jax by referee stoppage after Nia got a knee injury. I'm not sure that anyone really benefited from this but it was fine.Jason Jordan is planning something, you can see it in his eyes, but I'm not sure what it is. The Revival beat up Bayley's fiance then said that they are wrestlers, not sports entertainers. I reckon they…

Top 100 Wrestlers of 2017 (100-71)

Here we go. I have been working myself up to this one as it has been a real ask, and even now I am second guessing myself, but fuck it, here it is. As with the other lists I have put together this will be based on match quality, in ring ability, gimmick and a touch of personal preference. I have also decided to eliminate members of tag teams if they are too hard to differentiate from each other, such as the Usos or Young Bucks. Part 1 will hopefully be nice and snappy and knock off a good chunk of the list. Without further ado, here is the list.


100. Drew GulakGulak has been the brightest point in a post Neville 205 Live and every single time he is on screen I am entertained. The man can go in the ring too.

99. Shane StricklandWhether wrestling as himself or under the gimmick of Killshot in Lucha Underground, Strickland is one of the most dynamic high fliers around. He isn't afraid to tear it up either as evidenced by his brutal 3 Stages of Hell match against Dante Fox in Lucha Un…
