The annual PWI Female 50 list has been revealed, and 2017 sees Asuka as the woman to outdo the rest!

After completing her run in NXT undefeated, whilst holding the title longer than any championship holder in WWE history, her win doesn’t come as a surprise. And after making her WWE main roster debut at a recent pay-per-view, the future is looking bright for the Empress of Tomorrow!

The latest top 50 list includes a total of 20 new/re-entries, with Io Shirai being the highest at number 6.

The highest climber is Shayna Bazsler, who climbed from number 40 to 12.

The largest faller of the year is Santana Garrett as she dropped from 24 to 42.
