Perhaps these tweets wouldn't resonate so poorly had WWE's 'Beast Slayer' not laid a colossal egg in the aforementioned show's main event. Regardless, having only one truly great singles match (vs. AJ Styles) means Rollins has no place on our list, despite his obvious skill and popularity.
He isn't the only notable honourable mention, with Daniel Bryan falling out of contention after a lacklustre post-WrestleMania run, Kazuchika Okada suffering through a lack of high-calibre singles bouts, and injury robbing Tommaso Ciampa of a spot. Indie standouts PAC and Rey Fenix almost made it. Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks, shoe-ins in any other year, haven't worked enough matches to justify their inclusion, despite their obvious impact on the business in 2019.
Matches, promos, character work, presence, aura, and charisma comprised our criteria's backbone, as did how well the performers come off in their respective environments. You can't be a 'best in the world' contender if you aren't showing it...
A caffeine-dependent life-form from the frozen wastes of north east Scotland. He once tried to start a revolution but didn't print enough pamphlets, so hardly anyone turned up. Give him a follow @andyhmurray. You'll have a great time. Maybe.
