THE Most Dope Wrestler of the Week 7/26/15

Another week has passed and yet even more wrestling dopeness has occurred! And I’m here to tell you all about it! As always, this is how it works: I watch a bunch of wrestling and let you know who was peachy keen the previous week. It goes from Sunday through Saturday, which means this week I cover from WWE Battleground to ROH TV.

A couple of notes before I get to it: I watched all of G1 Nights One and Two. After that, I only watched the actual G1 matches. It’s just too much. Also: I did not get to watch ROH Death Before Dishonor. Just a heads up.

Anyway, let’s do it!

20. Sasha Banks (Battleground, RAW)

Sasha is just so incredibly mean. I’m glad to hear the boo birds come out during her appearance on RAW; bodes well.

19. The Kingdom (ROH TV)

I love Bennett, Taven, and Maria so much. They’re perfect heels for ROH.

18. Seth Rollins (RAW)

Seth Rollins being an absolute shit is my favorite Seth Rollins.

17. John Cena (Battleground, RAW)

Cena is on the run of his career: he does not have bad matches right now.

16. Katsuyori Shibata (G1 Night 1 & 3)

Matthew Timmons said it best, “Shibata isn’t likely to win this tournament, but he carries himself like he will…and that’s all that matters.”

15. Charlotte (Battleground, RAW)

There was just something amazing at Charlotte kicking imaginary dirt at Brie Bella.

14. Vampiro (Lucha Underground)

This man is in a blood feud; yet he opened the LU broadcast by RAISING THE ROOF. Don’t ever change, Vamp.

13. AJ Styles (G1 Night 1/3)

The question TNA will always have to ask itself is: was AJ ALWAYS capable of this? If so…

12. The Wyatt Family (Battleground, RAW)

It tickles me that the band if getting back together; it doesn’t even bother me that Harper kicked Roman Reigns’ beautiful face!

11. Tyler Breeze (NXT)

Breeze going all, “Draw me like one of your French girls,” pretty much made my week.

10. Yujiro Takahashi (G1 Night 1, 2, 4)

And the winner for best entrance music goes to…

9. Xavier Woods (Battleground)

You all know why he’s here: tricep meat; WORST LEGDROP EVER, etc. Just brilliance personified.

8. Kota Ibushi (G1 Night 1 & 3)

The ass-kicking dreamboat is back and doing just that: kicking ass.

7. Karl Anderson (G1 Night 2 & 4)

Has defeated Nakamura AND Goto so far in the tournament. Kill ’em, Karl!

6. Cesaro (RAW, Smackdown)

Things are looking up for the Swiss Superman! Bonus: super rad RKO spot in RAW!

5. Michael Elgin (G1 Night 1, 2, & 4)

The much maligned Unbreakable one is doing VERY week over in NJPW. Also: Twitter friend stumbled upon a new nickname: “Meaty.”

4. Toru Yano (G1 Night 1, 2, 3)

This is the honest truth: if I were a wrestler, I’d be Yano.

3. Hiroshi Tanahashi (G1 Night 1, 2, 3)

Tanahashi is SUPER dope during the G1. Very cool to see him pulling out all the stops, even working as an heel when needed. Beautiful.

2. Brock Lesnar & The Undertaker (RAW)

Their pull apart brawl had me all heart eyed emoji, guys.

1. Tetsuya Naito (G1 Night 1, 2, 3)

I LOVE this new character Naito’s playing. I haven’t seen anything quite like it. PLUS: NEW DOPE ENTRANCE GEAR!!

And there it is! Congrats to Tetsuya Naito for being THE Most Dope Wrestler of the Week!

Make sure you come back next week to see if Naito can keep the crown. Don’t agree? Let me know who YOU thought was dope this week in the comments!
