Wrestler Wrankings: 2012-2013 Season, Week 8

Wrankingslogo_medium

Hello, Christian!

This week, the former World Wrestling Federation (WWF) light heavyweight champion had the kind of showing that most superstars can only dream of. He won two matches at the Over the Limit pay-per-view (PPV), along with one each on RAW and Smackdown, to leap from 0 points in the Wrankings to knocking on the door of the top 10. And with the Intercontinental strap around his waist, he's in line for at least one additional bonus point when he gets around to defending it.

It only goes to show you that a great wrestler like John Cena or Brock Lesnar is only a week away from being in the mix, if only they could set aside their personal (or legal) issues to focus on the task at hand: excelling athletically at the greatest sporting endeavor in the world.

(Note to Brock: You don't get any points for merely attending another organization's show!)

Our formula and this weeks Wrankings, after the jump.

OFFICIAL WRESTLER WRANKINGS FORMULA

ANY WIN = 2 POINTS
