    Which wrestler is the GUY in professional wrestling right now, I know there are plenty of names that you argue for, but to make this argument more fruitful I am establishing my own criteria for what makes up the best in the world.

    CRITERIA:
    • Mic Skills/Out-of-ring talent: Working the audience during backstage/non-match situations. Can they sell a match?
    • Ring work: In-ring skill, move-set, psychology, story-telling, and selling. How good are their matches?
    • Gimmick/Look: Character work. How well do they play their role?
    • Draw: Ability to get a pop, draw interest. Do fans care about them?
    • Work Ethic: Consistency, investment in their craft. How hard do they work at being a wrestler? Being healthy.

    MY PICKS:
    1. Shinsuke Nakamura - NR Mic (JP speaker),4.5/5 Ring, 5/5 Gimmick, 4.5.5 Draw, 4.5/5 Work Ethic = 92.5
    2. Pentagon Jr. - 4.5/5 Mic, 4/5 Ring, 5/5 Gimmick, 4.5/5 Draw, 5/5 Work Ethic = 92
    3. Cena - 4.5/5 Mic, 4/5 Ring, 3.5/5 Gimmick, 5/5/ Draw, 5/5 Work Ethic = 88
    4. Adam Cole - 4/5 Mic, 4.5/5 Ring, 4/5 Gimmick, 4/5 Draw, 4.5/5 Work Ethic = 84
    5. Seth Rollins - 3/5 Mic, 4.5/5 Ring, 3.5/5 Gimmick, 4/5 Draw, 4.5/5 Work Ethic = 78
    Make a case for your guy, no need to fukk with any numbers or shyt, this is just how I judged my guys.

    Some technical ass criteria right here so we gone cook with that...

    Imma say my man Kevin Owens is the best wrestler in the world. A grade in all categories OP listed. After that Lethal, Adam Cole Bay Bay! and Joe.

    Shout out to Ethan Carter 3 and Rainmaker too.

    Cole is OK and deserves to be a contender, but to omit Lethal? :dahell:

    I can admit that oversight, he should definitely be there. He looked kinda lost at WK this year, but he's still the man in ROH.

    He's a solid 4/5 - 5/5 in every category. Plus he can work with anybody in a program and even carry the feud for most.

    Okada is definitely on the short list for me too. Just wish I spoke Japanese.

    Lethal and it aint even close, not even because he's black.

    This dude's promo game is A1, if you ever seen old jay lethal promos, he was AWFUL, like social outcast bad.

    Now he's the best promo in ring of honor save for like Corino, Cole and Jay Briscoe.

    In ring he stopped being so spotty and became more polished, he rvd'd that tv belt and made it just as if not more important than the world belt.

    If el patron was willing to put him over, that's good enough for me.

    That's actually pretty tough when you factor in everything.

    • Mic Skills/Out-of-ring talent: Working the audience during backstage/non-match situations. Can they sell a match?
    • Ring work: In-ring skill, move-set, psychology, story-telling, and selling. How good are their matches?
    • Gimmick/Look: Character work. How well do they play their role?
    • Draw: Ability to get a pop, draw interest. Do fans care about them?
    • Work Ethic: Consistency, investment in their craft. How hard do they work at being a wrestler? Being healthy.d

    To me, Nakamura, Styles and Lethal are the best 3 right now, not necessarily in that order.

    Mic-Skills/Out of Ring: Lethal on the mic, but Nakamura is by far the most charismatic wrestler in the industry.
    Ring Work: AJ, followed closely by Naka and Lethal
    Gimmick: Nakamura, but Lethal is incredible here
    Draw: Nakamura put a ton of butts in the seats...AJ established and carried a company for a decade
    Work Ethic: Equal

    Verdict: What a time
