Smackdown Women’s champion Bayley has topped the PWI Women’s 100, capping off a fantastic year for her in which she surpassed the 365-day mark as champion, a feat which is not easily done these days.
Bayley was followed by Becky Lynch in #2 and Asuka in #3, Charlotte Flair in #4, and Sasha Banks in #5, with the WWE women occupying six of the top 10 spots.
AEW Women’s champion Hikaru Shida was in #6 and former Impact World champion Tessa Blanchard in #7. Another AEW star Riho was in #8 and NXT Women’s champion Io Shirai landed in #9. Stardom’s Mayu Iwatani wraps up the top 10 list.
But while she’s in #1, Bayley shares the cover with Sasha Banks, her former best friend who she will wrestle at Hell In A Cell later this month.
“Now if only I got the cover all to myself,” Bayley wrote on Twitter reacting to the artwork of the PWI magazine. “The Bayley-bration, 500 days of Bayley, the year of the Bayley, it just keeps getting better.”
AEW’s Jon Moxley topped the PWI 500 in the men’s list.
