The year is wrapping up and plenty of people are compiling lists of who had the best year in pro wrestling. SI’s list includes some interesting names including a former Lunatic Fringe at the top.

Jon Moxley had a very eventful 2019. He left WWE and found his was to AEW and NJPW. Now he is topping Sports Illustrated’s top 10 wrestlers of 2019.

You can check out the top ten list below. Nick Gage starts off the list at #10 followed by Kofi Kingston at #9. It is interesting how Kazuchika Okada and Seth Rollins both tied for #4.

Jon Moxley had a pretty great year in 2019, but 2020 is shaping up to be big as well. He is the #1 contender for the AEW World Title. We should probably expect for him to get a title shot at AEW Revolution.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
