Wrestler Wrankings: 2012-2013 Season, Week 5

Wrankingslogo_medium

Welcome to Wrestler Wrankings, the weekly sports column where we track and score the purest form of sport yet devised by man... professional wrestling.

There was lots of great wrestling this week and lots of shuffling in the Wrankings; enough to finally merit displaying a top 10, rather than merely a top 5. Much of the action was a function of the "Beat the Clock" matches featured on RAW, but sadly, two of those matches ended in time limit draws, denying either competitor of any points. This includes Chris Jericho just barely missing out on 2 points that would have landed him all alone in 7th place, rather than outside the top ten.

Santino also continued his heretofore fruitful US Title Reign in a match that, while not technically televised, was deemed an official part of the Extreme Rules card. This is certainly a Wrankings grey area, but we'll continue forward with this precedent for future PPV preshow teaser matches.

Our formula and a NEWWWWWWW Wrankings leader, after the jump...

OFFICIAL WRESTLER WRANKINGS FORMULA

ANY WIN = 2 POINTS

US OR INTERCONTINENTAL TITLE BOUT = 1 POINT

WWE OR WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE BOUT = 3 POINTS

NON "BIG 4" PPV = x1.5 BONUS

SUMMERSLAM, SURVIVOR SERIES, ROYAL RUMBLE = x2 BONUS

WRESTLEMANIA = x3 BONUS

The wrestler with the highest score at the conclusion of the wrestling season (WrestleMania 29), wins the coveted Wrankings championship!
