Seth Rollins takes the PWI top 500 #1 spot
WWE World Heavyweight and United States champion Seth Rollins took this year’s Pro Wrestling Illustrated Top 500 after an amazing year that saw him stealing the show at the Rumble, cashing in his Money In The Bank briefcase at WrestleMania and winning the WWE World Heavyweight title, and winning the United States title at SummerSlam from John Cena. The remaining WWE-related Superstars also in the top 10 are John Cena in #2, Roman Reigns in #4, Randy Orton in #6, Rusev in #8, and Kevin Owens in #10. Last year Daniel Bryan took the top spot. Pro Wrestling Illustrated writers follow a criteria that includes win-loss record, championships won, quality of competition, major feuds, prominence within a wrestler’s individual promotion, and overall wrestling ability to place each individual.
