Bayley tops the PWI Women’s 100

The Four Horsewomen and Asuka round out PWI’s top 5.

Pro Wrestling Illustrated has released the top 5 for their annual PWI Women’s 100 ranking of the top female wrestlers in the world, and your SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley tops the list.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

The top 5 all appear in the upcoming magazine cover. Along with those picks, the top 10 in the 2020 PWI Women’s 100 are as follows:

  1. Bayley (WWE – SmackDown)
  2. Becky Lynch (WWE – Raw)
  3. Asuka (WWE – Raw)
  4. Charlotte Flair (WWE – Raw)
  5. Sasha Banks (WWE – SmackDown)
  6. Hikaru Shida (AEW)
  7. Tessa Blanchard (Unsigned)
  8. Riho (AEW)
  9. Io Shirai (WWE – NXT)
  10. Mayu Iwatani (Stardom)

While it’s somewhat surprising to see WWE — specifically, Raw and SmackDown — claim the entire top 5, under that pretense, Four Horsewomen + Asuka makes perfect sense. Rounding out the top 10 are the AEW Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida, Tessa Blanchard, inaugural AEW Women’s World Champion Riho, NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai, and Stardom’s Mayu Iwatani.

Congratulations to Bayley for one hell of a year! Be sure to check out PWI’s website for more of their coverage.
