Jon Moxley has come a long way over the past 12 months or so

It's interesting to note that Jon Moxley bagged the No.20 spot in last year's PWI 500 list. His former stablemate Seth Rollins was the No.1 ranked PWI wrestler last time around. Former NXT Champion, Adam Cole has been ranked No.2, while AEW star Chris Jericho took the third spot. Immediately below him is the current WWE Champion, Drew McIntyre.

There's a bunch of ranking criteria that PWI has taken into consideration while compiling the list. It includes a wrestler's win-loss record, the influence that they have had on the sport, their technical ability in the squared circle, success against major stars and diverse competition, and how active the said wrestler has been over the past one year.

Sportskeeda is proud to announce that our senior editor, Andrea Amanda Marie Hangst, was a part of PWI's selection committee for the Top 100 female wrestlers. The list will be revealed later in the year.
