She’s #1! One of the most common things that you see among wrestling fans is a discussion of the best wrestlers. At one point or another, every fan has debated something about wrestling, often over who the best is at any given thing. You occasionally get something official, or in this case something close to it, as a wrestler has won a rather prestigious award.

Pro Wrestling Illustrated has released its annual PWI Women’s 150, ranking the top 150 female wrestlers in the world over the period of October 1, 2021 – September 30, 2022. the award is based on a mixture of success, influence, in-ring ability, competition and more. The list has been released since 2008 and this is the first time that a woman from a non-North American promotion has ranked #1. Here is the top ten:

1. Syuri (Stardom)
2. Bianca Belair (WWE)
3. Thunder Rosa (AEW)
4. Becky Lynch (WWE)
5. Jade Cargill (AEW)
6. Jordynne Grace (Impact Wrestling)
7. Saya Kamitani (Stardom)
8. Charlotte Flair (WWE)
9. Starlight Kid (Stardom)
10. Taya Valkyrie (AAA/Impact Wrestling)

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that can lead to all kinds of interesting debate as you will almost never be able to get a consensus to this kind of a list. There are all kinds of ways to go in something like this and that is one of the most entertaining things about wrestling. You can talk about this kind of thing as much as you want and get into all kinds of discussions, perhaps about wrestlers you are just finding.
