Bonjour! This is week 9 of my hopefully long term series Wrestlers of the Week, Where I will be very bias every week and use these biases to decide who the best wrestler of the Cody Rhodes era
The Rules are simple
– The evaluation period start and ends on Monday every week (in 2007)
– The higher you rank the more points you get
– You must have won a match this week to be considered for the list.
–Tag teams are typically bunched together unless one is significantly more notable than the other
– The time period is 15 years ago to the day.
People who show up on this list spread across many different shows and they will be ranked on my personal enjoyment of the match (70%) and the significance of their victories (30%).
Just a reminder our current top 10 is
1) Takeshi Morishima 26
2) El Generico & Kevin Steen 18
4) Yuji Nagata, Chavo Guerrero, Bryan Danielson, Jaki Numazawa
8) Takashi Sasaki 15
9) Kurt Angle 13
10) Claudio Castangnoli & Eddie Kingston 12
Now lets get onto the list!

Matt Hardy & MVP earned a spot on this weeks list by defeating Deuce & Domino for the WWE Tag Team Championships on this weeks Smackdown. MVP became a double champion and Matt Hardy looks to take that away from MVP

9) Takeshi Morishima (Kensuke Office)
Takeshi Morishima earned a spot on this weeks list by succsessfully defending his ROH championship in japan in the main event of the Kensuke Office show in a 20 minute match against Katsuhiko Nakajima in a nice showcase of what the future star Nakajima can do.

Alex Shelley earned a spot on this weeks list by making it to the semi finals of PWG BOLA 2007 after defeating Tyler Black & Matt Sydal in both pretty good matches. The first taste of excellence from Alex Shelley in the project. I’m excited to see a lot more of him in the future
Points: 4 (67th place)
6) Nigel McGuinness (PWG)
Nigel McGuinness also earned a spot on this weeks list by making it to the semi finals of this weeks list.

4) Pac (PWG)
After so many weeks of Pac putting other people on this list by having bangers with everyone he steps in the ring with but this weeks he gets a piece of the pie after making it to the semi finals of the PWG BOLA tournament.
