Wrestlemania is no longer just a one day epic event – it’s grown into a whole week of promotional wrestling, and one gigantic weekend of pro wrestling, both within and outside of Vinny Mac’s realm. Independent companies from around the world now conjugate in whichever city Wrestlemania is held in that year, and put shows on from Friday to Sunday to please the thousands of fans that flock to watch a bit of graps.
When people talk about the legends of British wrestling, the same crop of competitors are always brought up: Davey Boy Smith, William Regal, Johnny Saint, Rollerball Rocco, Big Daddy, Dynamite Kid, Mick McManus, among others. But in this long list of legendary talent, one name always seems to be wrongfully omitted. Perhaps it’s because he is yet to work for WWE, or because he wasn’t grappling in the days of World of Sport, or simply because he is yet to hang up his boots, but in my opinion, Doug Williams is one of the most underappreciated, criminally underrated wrestlers in not just Britain, but in the entire wrestling world.
Bullet Club is the most popular stable in the wrestling world. Not since the late 90s have we seen a group completely take over the sport quite like this. Bullet Club shirts are the new NWO shirts, and too sweet is the new…too sweet.
The group has had some of the biggest stars in wrestling in its ranks over the last few years, including two of WWE’s biggest stars right now, but given the turnover of talent they’ve already experienced since their inception, and that the group currently contains some of the most highly scouted performers in the world, Bullet Club is always open to new recruits. But when the time comes to bring in some new bone soldiers, who should the Biz Cliz turn to? Well, I may have just who they are looking for. Here are my Top 10 Candidates to Join Bullet Club.
A wrestler’s finisher/s is/are the best weapon/s in their arsenal. It says something about them, explains how they choose to fight and how they decide to end their matches. Not only that, good finishers can also define the wrestler they belong to – what would Stone Cold be without the Stunner, or Scotty 2 Hotty without The Worm? Given how important they are, nailing a good finisher is one of the most important decisions a wrestler can make; sometimes they get it right, sometimes they get it wrong. In this list, I’ll be looking at those in wrestling today outside of WWE that really got it right. Unlike my best and worst WWE finishers lists, I will only be looking at the positive side of finishers in the world outside of Vinny Mac’s house of graps, for now at least anyway.
I’m going to be ranking the Top 15 finishers in Wrestling Outside of WWE today based on how effective they are, how believable they are as a move capable of finishing a match, and how visually appealing they are to me.
