FSM 50 - Wrestler of the Year list

Brian Elliott

Recommended Posts

I thought I might release the FSM 50 list in the hope of generating some further discussion on Pro Wrestler of the Year. This list was chosen by contributors to Fighting Spirit Magazine.




The criteria for the FSM 50 states: “Quality of matches in the period November 2014 to December 2015 was the main criteria in considering FSM's Top 50 Pro Wrestlers of the Year. Such bouts, however, were not merely judged on workrate or technical skill, but also performance on the biggest stage, ability to work the crowd, and quality of storylines.”


The list was as follows:


1. AJ Styles

2. Kevin Owens

3. Kazuchika Okada

4. Hiroshi Tanahashi

5. John Cena

6. Sasha Banks

7. Roderick Strong

8. Zack Sabre Jr
