Wrestler Wrankings™ logo by Hollywood Wallace

The latest edition of the Wrestler Wrankings™ is in! It's your weekly breakdown and scoring for the world's purest form of sport.And this week's edition features a complete listing of the first half standings!

For the past six months, Wrestler Wrankings™ has scored the in-ring action of the sport of professional wrestling. Since we're halfway to the conclusion of the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) season at WrestleMania 29, now is an ideal time to round up the never-before-published, complete Wrankings list.

But first, a review of our patented formula and the briefing of this week's action:



  • Wrestlers earn 2 points for any singles win. This usually entails one-on-one encounters but can include any match where it's every man for himself, e.g., battle royal, 3 way dance, or Yappapi Indian strap match.
  • Other types of competition, e.g., dance offs, tag team matches, Super Posedowns, or anything diva, are not scored.
  • World Title Bouts grant a 3 point bonus to all participants.
  • Minor Title Bouts grant a 1 point bonus to all participants.
  • WrestleMania carries a 3x point bonus to all eligible matches on the card.
  • Summerslam, Survivor Series, and Royal Rumble bestow a 2x bonus.
  • All other Pay-Per View shows render a 1.5x point bonus.

That's it! The wrestler with the most points in the season stretching from just after WrestleMania 28 until the finale of WrestleMania 29 is crowned Wrankings Champion!
