I decided to write so soon due to my last slide being so short, so let me begin.
Over the course of the next few articles I will examine the best wrestlers of each year during the 2000s.
To be eligible, you have to have won at least one world title.
Eventually, I will put together a list of the top five wrestlers of the 2000s and will have a poll up where the fans will vote.
Each vote will be worth one point and will be added to the respective wrestler's point total.
Also, the winner of each wrestler of the year title will get ten points added on.
When i am done I will publish an article that will announce and analyze the best wrestler of the 2000s.
FYI just because a wrestler does not make a list does not mean their point total is not being kept track of for that particular year.
This just means that they are not eligible to win the wrestler of the year award for that particular year and therefore lose a shot at 10 extra points.
