PWI 500 is lame

Here are parts of the PWI 500. After reading it, I really think that the list is just crap. It is really obvious that they have no system to the rankings. After going to various indy shows this year, I can name a bunch of people who deserve to be ranked ahead of some of the names they threw on. In fact, I question if PWI can name 500 wrestlers or if they just got these names off google/youtube/wikipedia.

1. Triple H
2. Chris Jericho
3. John Cena
4. Edge
5. Randy Orton
6. Nigel McGuinness
7. Hiroshi Tanahashi
8. CM Punk
9. Sting
10. Ultimo Guerrero
11. The Undertaker
12. Kurt Angle
13. Jeff Hardy
14. Shawn Michaels
15. Keiji Muto
16. Batista
17. Tyler Black
18. Jack Swagger
19. A.J. Styles
20. Matt Hardy
21. Jeff Jarrett
22. Blue Demon Jr.
23. Austin Aries
24. Shinsuke Nakamura
25. The Big Show
26. Rey Mysterio Jr.
27. Bryan Danielson
28. Christian
29. Samoa Joe
30. Suicide – from this point on, the list goes south
31. Shelton Benjamin
32. Alex Shelley
33. MVP

35. Kofi Kingston
36. Mistico
37. Kane
38. Booker T

43. Brother Ray
44. Ted DiBiase Jr.
45. Mark Henry – I have been high on him lately but he should be a lot lower
46. John Morrison – needs to  be higher
47. Finlay
48. Cody Rhodes
49. Brother Devon
50. Jimmy Jacobs
51. Adam Pearce
52. Chris Sabin
53. Vladimir Kozlov
54. Kensuke Sasaki

71. Scott Steiner – needs to be lower, he can’t take a bump
72. Eric Young
73. Tyson Kidd

76. Primo
77. Davey Richards – really low ranking for him. He deserves to be in the top 25. He dominated Ring Of Honor this year and is one of the best wrestlers in the world. As I have said before: “If I had to pick one guy to train me, it would be Davey Richards.”

The Young Bucks need to be in the top 100 at least. They go into a place and tear apart the joint. Nick Jackson below Rob Terry.
