The Current Top 10 WWE Wrestlers
This is my first-ever Bleacher Report article. I am happy to be one of the lucky ones able to share my thoughts with the world. All this quick slideshow is is just a showcase of my opinions. Who I think are the WWE's (mainly RAW) Top 10 wrestlers (and one stable, guess who? Hint: N).
Anyway, here goes! (See the sequel: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/539457-response-to-the-top-ten-current-wwe-wrestlers)
10. John Morrison
Yes, John Morrison IS here.
JoMo is the upset appearance on this list, because his popularity has been dwindling lately. Here’s hoping the bookers make him more than a parkour enthusiast and funnel his athletic ability into a good match for once. I don’t even remember his last match, because he’s been too busy saving Santino’s *ss every damn week from big, bad Sheamus, who will appear much later on this list.
[EDIT] John Morrison had two great matches on the KotR RAW, with Alberto Del Rio and then Sheamus.
9. Ezekiel Jackson
Big Zeke is just one of those guys you see at the gym and makes you want to cry a little.
He is very physically intimidating and has great potential. The WWE’s Creative Team needs to book him in better matches with better people. Less squashes, more wrestling. I’d like to see a Jackson-Miz feud or even Jackson-Khali when he’s done with his Indian game show.
[EDIT] Zeke had a decent match with Drew McIntyre, also on the King Of The Ring RAW.
8. The Nexus
The Nexus, in case you’ve just crawled out from under the proverbial rock, is one of the greatest groups assembled since Evolution. Maybe even better.
The members are each great wrestlers on their own, but together they’re unstoppable. Wade Barrett lifted Mark Henry for a Wasteland. Let me say that again. Wade Barrett lifted Mark Henry. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don’t think that’s been done since Brock Lesnar.
I’m expecting a Nexus-Nexus feud in the near future, as David Otunga has been going on a bit of a rebellious streak as of late. Maybe Otunga, Young and Sheffield against Barrett, Gabriel and Slater? Maybe even throw Daniel Bryan’s skinny *ss back in there. Michael Tarver too.
This could bring back good ol' elimination tag matches, as Survivor Series disappointed in that department.
7. CM Punk
Even though he’s been looking extremely douchey this past week or two (hair-wise), CM Punk sneaked his way onto this list.
He is still one of the WWE’s most athletically-talented and technically-sound performers and can always be counted on for a main event.
Now, he can also be a little more funny as a second color commentator on RAW.
6. Drew McIntyre
He’s “the Chosen One,” so Mr. McMahon has threatened me with a lawsuit unless I place him on my list.
Jokes aside, he is a great wrestler and has a great finish (The Future Shock, which is a double-underhook DDT), which is very important in my book.
The Sinister Scotsman will go on to be the next Randy Orton, if he can get into the WHC hunt.
5. Jack Swagger
Or should I say Jack Thwagger?
Mr. Two-Push-Ups has a solid amateur background and is definitely world title material. Like McIntyre, he has a great finisher (Gutwrench Powerbomb) and is worth a watch, even if he has his stupid Soaring (Boring?) Eagle with him.
4. The Miz
The Miz is the freakin’ WWE Champion.
I really shouldn’t have to say more, but I will.
He won Money in the Bank, beat Randy Orton, basically maimed Daniel Bryan week after week, etc. He needs to keep the belt for a few weeks, drop it to Orton and then win it again fair in the next PPV. Then, he needs to keep it for about 5-6 months, all the time cleanly defending it to legitimize him as a top-level competitor.
Edge has been and will always be one of my favorites.
He has a great gimmick, a great moveset, a great finisher, the whole package. He’s one half of my username, 32OrtonEdge32, and he needs some more main-event matches.
I kind of want a Rated RKO reunion and have them feud with the Usos or even Ted and Brett DiBiase.
2. Randy Orton
I can’t really say much on Randy, because he’s on here for basically the same reasons as Edge. Sorry?
He's out with a (most likely) kayfabe knee injury, but I guarantee you that when he gets back, there's gonna be some epic RKO-Miz matches.
Sheamus is truly one of the most dominating (sorry Zeke) figures in professional wrestling today.
He is the WWE's King of the Ring for a reason, and he needs to get back into the title hunt. I suggest a Sheamus-Ezekiel Jackson feud, with them trading wins up to a Last Man Standing WM27 match.
With that, I conclude my Top 10.
