Cesaro swings to an early lead in the new year of our Wrestler Rankings


Everybody who comes to Cageside Seats has an opinion about what’s going on in pro wrestling – Wrestler Rankings are where YOU let us know YOURS.

Cast a vote in the comments. Give us the four performers you think entertained or impressed the most in the last week, and feel free to talk about why. And/or vote for your top performer in our poll.

We also have the outcome of last week’s voting, the results of which make up our annual competition for Performer of the Year.

This week, we’re voting on nationally televised and internet streaming pro wrestling shows that took place April 18 – 24 – Raw, Dark: Elevation, Dark, NXT, Dynamite, Fusion, Impact, SmackDown, ROH TV, and anything else I’m forgetting.

But first, here’s the outcome of last week’s voting, and how those results changed our annual competition for Performer of the Year.

Here’s to the start of our tenth year!

  • SmackDown’s big WrestleMania winners kept their momentum going. Swiss lead the way with what looked at the time like it was going to be a shot at the Tribal Chief.
  • A surprising Cruiserweight title change gave us NXT’s top ranked wrestler, but we support Indi Wrestling… and her romance with a certain Tortured Artist… too.
  • AEW had a pretty good rankings week to go with their huge ratings week. The TNT titleholder led the way, with a guy who would be a tag champ today if some egomaniacs hadn’t unmasked him, and those self-same egomaniacs following behind.
  • The Queen doesn’t land in our Top 10 often, but by embracing her heel side, that might change this year.

The CCWR: 2021 – 22, Week 2

1. Cesaro
2. Kushida
3. Darby Allin
4. Roman Reigns
5. Indi Hartwell
6. Bianca Belair
7. Rey Fenix
8. Matt Jackson
9. (tie) Charlotte Flair
9. (tie) Nick Jackson

Points in our weekly Standings determine our annual list – full details on rules and scoring HERE.

Being week one, the year-to-date Rankings are identical to what you see above. But as we get farther away from WrestleMania 37, and closer to 38, the Year Ten Top Ten will be posted in this space every Sunday (and, roughly quarterly, a complete version featuring everyone who’s earned annual points).


Ready to do it again? You can always check the “how to” here if you need it, or ask a question in the comments. But don’t be afraid to dive in! You give us rankings, we’ll take it form there.
