10. Rey Fenix & Pentagon Jr
Prolific across the global independent scene in 2018, neck stuff aficionados and bruising brothers Rey Fenix and Pentagon Jr left as many folk laying on canvases as fans did dollars for their devastating displays.
Making splashes in their Impact Wrestling efforts for that company's modest television audience, the pair earned plaudits and paydays across the world as solo and doubles deviants, chasing pops from head drops and gasps from ghastly attacks. The two worked separately at ALL IN, but the realism in their relationship put them back together in the eyes of the audience on the night, particularly when they shone so spectacularly in their showcase showdowns.
Rumours have repeatedly swirled that the pair are WWE-bound, despite the company's abject failures with pushing masked performers apart from Rey Mysterio over the last decade. By all accounts, Vince McMahon was obsessed with a finding a successor to the 'Biggest Little Man', but his recent return has highlighted how big the gap was between the king and the pretenders to his throne.
Whilst the pair could rip apart Lucha House Party faster than Kalisto and co could a pinata, the banknotes they currently scrape from the ring may amount to more than developmental deals that neglect them creatively and commercially.
