Congratulations, you’ve won the lottery!

More exact, you’ve won $500 million. You don’t ever have to work again, and you love wrestling. So naturally, you’re going to start your own company.

Due to a variety of outside factors, you’re able to draft any wrestler, male or female, in the world from any company for your own startup.

Who would be your top 10 choices in order?

This question was posed to 12 Bleacher Report wrestling writers. They were allowed 10 picks each and asked to take the wrestler’s age, drawing ability and history of injuries into account. Ideally, you want someone who will be around for years and make your company a success.

Once drafted, the wrestlers were given a point scale (a first draft choice was worth 10 points, a second draft choice was worth nine points. This went all the way down to a writer's 10th pick, which was worth one point).

The totals were added up to help create a wide variety of talent from across the globe. There were 46 different wrestlers drafted, and not one single talent was chosen on everyone’s list.

Here are the wrestlers ranked in the order that Bleacher Report writers would take them to start their own company.

Contributing Writers: The Doctor Chris Mueller, Big Nasty, Travis Taylor, Colin I. McAndrew, Seth Guttenplan, Ryan Dilbert, Mike Chiari, Bryan Haas, Giulio Romano, David Levin, Chris Featherstone @cravewrestling, Andy Soucek
