Pro Wrestling Illustrated once again shares with us its top 500 best wrestlers in the world for the period between July 1, 2021 and June 30, 2022. We briefly remind you of the evaluation criteria: wins/losses, titles and tournaments won, the notoriety of the wrestler and his company or the in-ring capacities as well as the matches offered during the year.

This year, the big winner of the Top 500 is none other than… Roman Reigns ! the Tribal Chief succeeds Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley who finished in first place in 2021 and 2020 respectively.

This is the second time that Roman Reigns has finished first in the PWI 500, the first time being in 2016. We find behind him Kazuchika Okada who is followed by CM Punk in third place. Discover the top 10 below (last year’s ranking in parentheses):

  1. Roman Reigns (2)
  2. Kazuchika Okada (25)
  3. CM Punk (unrated)
  4. Adam Page (34)
  5. Bobby Lashley (3)
  6. Cody Rhodes (11)
  7. Brian Danielson (36)
  8. El Hijo Del Vikingo (42)
  9. Big E (13)
  10. Jonathan Gresham (20)

Like every year, the women’s ranking will be released a little later in the year.
