We all know how popular WWE is, you can call it sport, entertainment, show, or whatever you want to call it. Here are the top 10 WWE wrestlers in 2016, find out more from this list.
10. Enzo and Cass
Enzo and Cass are in conflict with Rusev that is going nowhere, and they haven’t come close to the belts of New Day, but to be honest no one did that until earlier this month. This duo became famous after they graduated from NXT and their former manager was Cass’ real-life girlfriend, Carmella. She, along with the Ascension, Tyler Breeze, and Apollo Crews can confirm that coming from the NXT into the WWE is not always easy. This duo is entertaining to watch, and they made it to our list.
9. Seth Rollins
Between Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns, and Seth Rollins, we need to say that Rollins is the largest star. Although he didn’t win a title in 2016, his acrobatics and moves in the ring are amazing, and he was re-established as a fan favorite. We would like to see him winning a title, but that may not happen soon.
8. The Miz
Mike Mizanin’s commitment and ability are undeniable, and he reached the number eight spot on our list. Although he is not shooting action movie, the Miz is so devoted, and he shows up at every taping, he fights and gives his best, and there is no doubt why he is the current Intercontinental Champion. He is great in long matches where endurance matters as we had a chance to see him fighting Dolph Ziggler at TLC. Moreover, he and Maryse are a terrific couple in WWE.
7. Heath Slater
Some people may believe that the fans actually helped Heath Slater come from squash city to sign a posh SmackDown contract. This might be true, but we cannot deny that Heath Slater knows how to wrestle, plus he has got a gimmick. Along with Rhyno, he was the inaugural SmackDown Tag Team Champion. We believe that he fought well and deserved the seventh place.
6. Kevin Owens
Kevin is on the number six in Top 10 WWE Wrestlers in 2016 list. Overall, 2016 was a great year for him as he fought well in NXT and he managed to return to the main roster in May. We had a chance to watch him in back-to-back matches versus one of the greatest fighters, John Cena. He’s got it all in order to compete – he is large, and he can move, but also knows what to do with the mic. The crowd loves to watch this man in the ring.
We had an opportunity to watch an epic fight between Goldberg and Brock Lesnar at Survivor Series. Lesnar is the real deal, and he doesn’t need a scripted win against Goldberg, as he has got nothing to prove. However, Goldberg talks a big game and so far it has been a win-win situation for Goldberg and WWE.
4. Sasha Banks
Although some of you might not like Sasha Banks because of her occasional nagging, she deserved the fourth place on the list. She fought against Charlotte in the Hell in a Cell match, and she managed to regain the title and become a force for the Raw once more.
3. Chris Jericho
Chris Jericho went against AJ Styles in 2016, and their matches were not as breath-taking as the crowd hoped they would be, but still we had a chance to see very strong battles with some amazing moves. He also encountered Dean Ambrose at the Payback pay-per-view, and he managed to recover nicely when he battled against Cesar and Zayn ahead of Money in the Bank Ladder match.
The star of the women WWE is Charlotte, and she climbed to the second place of our list. She is an amazing athlete who is setting the bar high week, after week and she is a true example of a woman’s champion.
1. AJ Styles
The best WWE Wrestler in 2016 is AJ Styles. We saw domination in 2016 and more importantly he managed to avoid any injuries. AJ exploded onto the scene at the Royal Rumble in January, and that was the moment when he proved that he is the best wrestler in the world. He spent so many years in TNA, Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro Wrestling, after which he fought in the 30-man war. Moreover, his rivalry with Jericho was entertaining to watch. In addition, he also won a Fatal 4-Way match against Jericho, Cesaro, and Kevin Owens. Styles also had two excellent pay-per-view battles with Roman Reigns, as his recent showing against John Cena at Money in the Bank only confirmed his number one spot.
