Wrestler Wrankings™: 2012-13 Season, Week 52

This time of year, it's all about "WrestleMania" and everyone knows it!

We've reached week 52 of the Wrestler Wrankings season but, due to a quirk in scheduling, we're still a week away from the grand finale. Truly, WrestleMania 29 looms like a prime Andre the Giant over the entire sports landscape.

Accordingly, all wrestling action on WWE TV this week was directly tuned into preparing for the greatest night of the year. With tensions at an all time high, we saw an unusually high number of draws, count outs, and other non-conclusive finishes to matches.

Conspiracy theorists among us may speculate that this is due to some sort of collusive activity to build suspense and anticipation towards WrestleMania and these wackos are, of course, completely wrong.

The real reason for these types of inconclusive finishes is simple. Every wrestler on the roster is aware of the great opportunity that awaits next Sunday. No one wants to get hurt or show too much of their hand before the big event. Even though these are, without question, the best and most battle-hardened athletes in the world, there is a certain element of nerves at play here, too.

Make no mistake about it, everyone in the sports world knows how big a deal WrestleMania 29 is. I just can't wait to watch it next week!
