Although most wrestling fans are focused on 2013 and what the WWE will bring to the table during this New Year, it's always fun to reflect on the year that was. There is no doubt that 2012 was far from a perfect year for the WWE, but a lot of good things happened, and several superstars shined brightly.
One of the big reasons why most have a positive outlook on 2013 for the WWE is the fact that most of the company's top stars came up big in 2012, and many new stars were developed as well. While the usual suspects like John Cena and CM Punk were among the WWE's most valuable superstars last year, entertainment came from some unexpected sources as well.
Many fans would agree that the past couple months have been solid for WWE due to the emergence of young talent and intriguing storylines, but 2012 was a year that featured great matches and solid pay-per-views across all 12 months. Without fine performances from the superstars, none of that would have been possible.
Each and every wrestler on the WWE roster in 2012 contributed in some way that helped make the company successful. Here are the 10 superstars who rose above the rest, however, and made 2012 a year to remember.
