WWE Wrestler of the 2000s: 2002
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.
Accomplishments for the year 2002
Wrestling Observer match of the year-5 points
Wrestling Observer wrestler of the year -5 points
Tag team title reign- 3 points
World title+partial part of 100+ day reign-6.5 points
8 Pay-Per-View victories-16 points
Accomplishment for the year 2002: Royal Rumble Win- 5 points
Wrestlemania main event+bonus for win- 10 points
3 world titles+bonus for being first WHC-20 points
7 Pay-Per-View victories-20 points
Total points - 55 points
He was the best heel around in my opinion and at some points carried Raw.
Also, although he had fewer Pay-Per-View wins than Angle his wins at Mania and Royal Rumble were worth more value.
Accomplishments for 2002:
Pro Wrestling Illustrated Wrestler of the year-5 points
King of the Ring- 5 points
World title reign-5 points
7 Pay-Per-View wins- 17 points
Pretty darn good year for a rookie and I should say I will be cheering for Brock this Saturday against Shane Carwin.
The Wrestler of 2002 was HHH
Before I elaborate any further, I will say that for now on I will on I will on list the current standings of wrestlers to make the list as it is less time consuming and speeds up the process.
I am still keeping tabs on every wrestlers point total even if they do not make a list for the specific year.
Now HHH had a very good year as he came back from injury, won at wrestlemania, and became the first WHC.
He won with total of 55 points and gets 10 bonus points for taking the number 1 ranking for the year bringing him to 65 points.
Now for the standings.
Brock Lesnar-32 points
Also I am sad to say we already have a few eliminations from the wwe wrestler of the 2000's race, all wrestlers where eliminated due to it being mathematically impossible for them to win.
The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin - Both could have won wrestler of the 90's however a lack of significance in WWE after 2002 had them getting killed in points totals.
