Who is the best wrestler in the world?

This question is a constant topic in the fan community of WWE and Co. - and most recently Universal Champion Seth Rollins triggered it again.

With the self-confident Twitter announcement that no one could hold a candle to him, Rollins provoked the show fight fans.

In addition to many fans, Rollins also contradicted the British Will Ospreay, top star of the Japanese league NJPW, who sees himself well ahead in the matter. A toxic online exchange of blows was the result.

But who is really number 1? Top technicians like Rollins, AJ Styles, and Daniel Bryan are very popular with WWE fans. Others argue that in Japan Ospreay, but also Kazuchika Okada, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kenny Omega, who recently switched to the new competitive league AEW, are more convincing.

SPORT1 takes the excitement as an occasion for a cross-league ranking: The criterion is the ring performances of the past 12 months, whereby the relevance of the home doctorate and the importance of the wrestlers and the matches they contest play a role for them. It's about the quality of the performances shown, not the potential in principle - those who couldn't or weren't allowed to access it recently couldn't score.
