WWE and AEW are easily the most popular wrestling promotions on earth with millions of followers. Unless you watch them regularly, it is difficult to keep up with what is happening. There are over 200 events throughout the year, so catching up on the action before jumping on a GClub wager relies on knowing who is who in the wrestling universe.
We have picked out the top WWE and AEW superstars of the past year to help you get back in the game.
Kofi Kingston is probably the most successful wrestler of 2019. He was able to beat Daniel Brian in the WrestleMania 35 title match and became a true champion. He also went on to sustain the title for six months, a wrestling eternity.
Chris Jericho helped revive his career in AEW. The fact that Jericho is 49 years old and is still able to perform amazes his fans and critics alike. Jericho’s recent performance showed that he is still in top shape and can match the most athletic of young wrestlers head to head.
Cody Rhodes is another star who experienced the best year of his career last year. Cody helped introduce wrestling fans to a WWE alternative: tough competition and fast-paced action. Coming back to 2019, Rhodes delivered some of the most iconic performances that fans will remember for years. Rhodes’ match against his brother was exceptionally memorable for some of his greatest fans, too.
Adam Cole demonstrated his athleticism and skill when he came to NXT straight from Ring of Honor.
What differentiates Cole is his uncanny ability to adapt his game and step up each time he enters the ring. When facing Daniel Bryan on Smackdown, he showcased his talents to the world in style, proving that he can match up to any of the superstars on the circuit.
Most Cole fans will tell you that he is the main reason NXT is as popular as it is today. His personality and style of wrestling put WWE NXT on the map.
Nick Gage proved himself as wrestling’s fiercest performer in 2019, elevating his career along with GCW’s status and reputation despite not being part of WWE or AEW. He brings out an intimidating side of himself every time he steps into the ring and makes sure never to disappoint the fans who enjoy his aggressive approach. Gage’s ability to turn on beast mode in the ring has led to some extremely entertaining matches in the past season, and it puts him firmly on our list of WWE superstars.
The last pick is a household name, and Rollins proved himself to the world when he beat Brock Lesnar in WrestleMania 35 for the WWE Universal title. Even though his performance to attain the title was iconic, most fans found his run as the titleholder mediocre at best. Winning the Universal title was enough for Rollins to make our list, especially considering his renown as a key player on WWE.

It is wonderful to see the new season will be kicking off soon when most enthusiasts only got their wrestling fix playing online platforms, like GClub.
