Who is the best worker in WWE today?

This is a question that comes up often in various threads around Cageside, but not everyone can agree. I intend to end that dispute today.

The candidates are: Daniel Bryan, Antonio Cesaro, Seth Rollins, Dolph Ziggler, Dean Ambrose, Tyson Kidd, CM Punk or Sami Zayn. Out of these candidates Rollins, Cesaro, Bryan, Punk and Zayn all perfected their craft in Ring of Honor (ROH) while Ambrose wrestled in CZW. Ziggler is WWE homegrown, wrestling in OVW. Kidd wrestled in Stampede Wrestling and NJPW.

Dolph Ziggler

Average match rating by the Observer: 3.27

  3. DAT DROPKICK
  4. Sell to the monkey flip (come freaking on!)

Dean Ambrose

Years active in the WWE: 1 year

Average match rating by The Observer: 3.09

Impressive moves:

  1. Headlock driver

Since Dean hasn't really unveiled a WWE move set yet, let me just say that he is very adept at selling to his opponents and integrates his deranged eccentric character very well into his matches. Or, as William Regal once put it, "he is everyone's favorite opponent for the next 10 years."
