When it comes to professional wrestling, WWE has already started creating the next league of stars by bringing up the most entertaining yet athletically fit wrestlers from around the world. In recent times, the industry has also seen quite a lot of versatility in terms of the wrestlers being brought into the competition. If you want a good grasp on the live betting odds in wrestling, then you need to know who the top 10 wrestlers of this year are; that is precisely what we will figure out in this article.
Did you know that 2022 marks the completion of two decades since Brock Lesnar came into the WWE? Even now, he’s at the top of the chain. It doesn’t matter what you think of him; you can’t deny that the Beast Incarnate is definitely the main attraction this time. His Day 1 win has proven that he is here only for one thing; to win and nothing else. It has also been a breath of fresh air for the fans ever since Lesnar decided to show some of his personality on screen, and this definitely added to why he remained one of the must-see aspects of WWE all year.
Ever since Seth’s feud with Edge, he has garnered a lot of momentum and also become the no. 1 contender to the WWE Championship. After that, on SmackDown, he sort of rekindled his little rivalry over the Universal Championship with Roman Reigns, and all of this helped his cause, if nothing else. For now, Seth is in the Elimination Chamber, and lately, he has only been giving off certain babyface energy. Probably that’s what the company wants from him as WrestleMania 38 is knocking on the door.
If we are to name some of the youngest stars of WWE, you cannot omit Mustafa Ali, who came into the league as part of the Cruiserweight Classic. But do you know what the funniest part is? He wasn’t even supposed to be part of the tournament. He actually replaced another player who was originally from Brazil and was having some issues with his visa. Ali went on to fight some unforgettable matches against Drew Gulak, Cedrik Alexander, and Buddy Murphy.
If we were to talk about the first AEW women’s champion, it would be Riho, but no one has been featured as much as Britt Baker for the right reasons. But did you know that she was actually a real-life dentist before she became a wrestler? Yes! As she proved her talent, she has now built a loyal following. Baker has been an inspiration for the entire wrestling community, and she has verified that you need not have just one dream.
He is often considered the next face of WWE and is already a two-time NXT Champion. He is also a second-generation star. His uncle and father even gained their names in the WWE Hall of Fame, and you have probably even heard of them: Big Poppa Pump and Rick Steiner. Bron is one of the really fast-rising stars; hence, it would not be surprising to find him on the main roster soon.
Rhea Ripley has got her name known as one of the best female wrestlers in the world. This Australian star was booked by WWE very recently, and if you see her on SmackDown or Raw before WrestleMania 36, it wouldn’t be that big of a surprise. She has not only immense strength but also a unique look.
Even though Waller started out in 2017, he did not do anything legendary that would put his name out into this world. But signing with WWE in 2021 was his big break. He has been a part of the NXT Wargames match, but during his farewell speech, he was brutally attacked by Gargano.
Tiffany is another up-and-coming star that WWE has picked up. She mainly caught the eyes owing to her excellent gymnastic abilities, but apart from that, she is also a professional bodybuilder. She went to competitions like Battle Creek and Winter Classic and has won there.
You will find several names in AEW who have come up to the limelight from time to time, but no one has shined exceptionally bright like Sammy Guevara. When he was cut short by Cody Rhodes at the Rampage, it was only a brief setback from which he recovered quickly to become the interim TNT champion at Battle of the Belts, where he was up against Dustin Rhodes.
Last but definitely not least, this list would have been incomplete without mentioning Andrade. He is called one of the most technical wrestlers WWE has ever seen. If you put him up with just about anyone, he has the capacity to make that match exciting – that’s who he is.
All the names mentioned in this list have bright futures in their career but let’s hope this gives you a clear idea of the big names in the industry right now.
