Wrestler Wrankings -- WrestleMania 29, 2012-13 Season Wrap Up

The great season of 2012-13 professional wrestling season has finally come to end. See who took the ultimate prize in sport as well as a full listing of the year's Wrestler Wrankings.

WrestleMania 29 was the most hyped wrestling card of the year, and I believe it delivered in a BIG way. Three of the matches were great (Undertaker/Punk, HHH/Lesnar, and Shield/Superfriends), three were merely very good (Cena/Rock, Fandango/Jericho, and Hell No/Ziggler & Big E), one was fair (Del Rio/Swagger) and even the worst match on the card (Henry/Ryback) featured some impressive feats of strength and was somewhat entertaining.

But enough talk, it's time for the scores and if you still don't know how Wrestler Wrankings works, read this.

2012-13 Wrestler Wrankings CHAMPION!!!


1. Sheamus -- 165.5 points

In a year punctuated by the return of multiple legends of the squared circle at Wrestlemania and plagued by the incessant braying of CM Punk about how great he was, the true constant of the season was the dominance of Sheamus. The year was not without adversity though, as The Great White took on all comers, including losing his World Heavyweight Championship after a brutal series of matches with Big Show and later becoming embroiled in a feud with The Shield. Neither of these things helped his point total, but both proved how tough the Celtic Warrior truly is. Congratulations on your career season, Sheamus! We appreciate your hard work.
