2017 has been an up and down year for many on the WWE roster. Some, like Neville and Braun Strowman, have flown up the rankings, while the likes of The Miz and Dean Ambrose are tumbling down. AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, and others of their ilk have retained their strong positions throughout their year, but their pushes aren't always reflected in their win/loss records, and as usual, 2017's numbers make for some interesting reading.
Reigns, for example, has won just 48% of his matches as we close in on 2017's halfway point. The figure obviously doesn't tell the whole story, as there's no accounting for things like screwy finishes, but it does make for some intriguing peer-to-peer comparisons.
Let's identify a few criteria before diving in. In the interest of fairness, only wrestlers who have competed in 10 or more matches have been considered. Records include all televised singles, tag, and multi-competitor bouts, and the rankings are sorted by win percentage rather than total victories.
The raw data is surprising, with a number of WWE's biggest stars (and current champions) missing out, and some shocking names surging to the top. Who are they?
