Who Is The Best Wrestler In The World?

wwe njpw kenny omega iwgp championship interview

One of the biggest discussions we can see in all the wrestling community is who the best wrestler in the world today, and the wrestling community has agreed that Kenny Omega, Kazuchika Okada and AJ Styles are with no doubt the top three wrestlers in all the industry.

In ring style: These three men are amazing in the ring and only a few can barely match what Omega, Okada and Styles do in the ring and the amazing thing is how different these wrestlers are to one another in terms of wrestling style. Okada has a more Traditional style and to the surprise of many he is very fast in the ring and can keep up to wrestlers like Omega, Ospreay or Tanahashi who are very fast in the ring.  Omega and Styles have a very similar style, but the key difference comes on the speed and endurance in which Omega is superior to Styles but also Omega has a bigger arsenal in comparison to Styles.

Matches: In terms of matches in the last 2 years Omega and Okada are clearly ahead of AJ Styles. Omega and Okada in their feud had four of the best matches the business has ever seen with their last encounter receiving 7 stars from Dave Metlzer and praise from all the wrestling community. Meanwhile AJ Styles because of some terrible booking by WWE’s part, Styles had terrible feuds and average matches with wrestlers like Jinder Mahal, Kevin Owens and recently with Shinsuke Nakamura. Kenny Omega in 2018 was part in one of the best tag team matches we have seen in recent years in Golden Lovers (Omega and Ibushi) Vs The Young Bucks. On the other hand Okada in 2018 had great title defenses against Naito, Sanada , Tanahashi and Omega.

Who is the best?: In my personal opinion and in a very close call I can say Kenny Omega with no doubt is currently the best wrestler in the world, He is the most complete wrestler in terms of both in ring work and charisma, the matches he had during his career with wrestlers like Okada, Ibushi and Naito, has his legacy is cemented, also something that Okada and Styles have never done is being part of comedy wrestling like Omega did earlier in his career and we can see that comedy wrestling is art really hard to master and to this day we can the benefits and experience that Kenny  having matches with Yoshihiko (blow up doll) and the 9 year old girl gave him. In a second place I would place Okada and in third Styles.

Booking The Future Of Gargano & Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: WarGames

Their story is not over…

Published

Some may think that the Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa storyline has been tossed aside, but the card for Saturday at NXT TakeOver: War Games provides the perfect stepping stones toward their final encounter. 




Aleister Black vs Johnny Gargano

A lot of fans may feel that Gargano is a heel now but I don’t think he’s fully turned. At first glance, it seemed like Gargano was turning into Ciampa when he attacked Aleister Black. But remember, he attacked Black just so he could get his hands on Ciampa. 

Booking It: Aleister has the more legitimate gripe in this match so he’s winning. Johnny robbed him of his championship and his rematch. We’ve never seen a feud get Black more fired up than this one. That’s why I want the fans to be able to feel Black’s anger in the finish. When Aleister Black hits Gargano with the Black Mass kick, I want Johnny to fall back into the ropes, bounce off, then take a second Black Mass on the rebound. Black purges his anger and earns a chance to reclaim his championship.

NXT Championship – Tommaso Ciampa (c) vs Velveteen Dream

I’ve been anxiously waiting for Velveteen to get a chance at the NXT Championship but I don’t have a good feeling about this one. As much as I want Dream to get his first championship, this match had the “weakest” build among the four matches on the card. Everything Velveteen does is magic but Ciampa is on another level right now. 

Booking It: So yes, Ciampa is winning here. But I want Ciampa to have as difficult of a time as possible. Velveteen makes sure to always have the best ring gear for every TakeOver event. I’d like to use that to get into Ciampa’s head. When Dream enters the ring, I want him to be wearing a vest or jacket. He won’t take it off until Ciampa is in the ring. Underneath he’ll be wearing a DIY shirt. That will clearly leave Ciampa flustered and immediately set him off to the point of trying to rip the shirt off. Fast forward to the end of the match. Ciampa has won but is still fixated on the shirt. He recovers it but throws it into the audience before exiting the building. 



Booking Forward: Black and Ciampa were the two winners on the night. That will set up the rematch for the NXT Championship that Aleister Black never got to have. Even their first match wasn’t a clean victory since Gargano got involved. This rematch will take place at the TakeOver before the Royal Rumble. 

After the dust is settled from War Games and they’re back at Full Sail, Johnny Gargano will confront Velveteen Dream backstage. He’ll ask where Dream got the DIY shirt. Dream will say he has no memory of it, then Gargano will conclude by saying to stay out of his business. Tensions rise between the two over the ensuing weeks, also leading to a match at the next TakeOver. 

Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa will each win those matches, leaving their final encounter for the TakeOver before WrestleMania. Here, Johnny Gargano finally wins the big one.
