Bianca Belair tops this year’s PWI 150 list!
Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) has just dropped their annual women’s list and this year it has expanded from 100 to 150 for the first time. Originally, only 50-women, PWI’s women’s list came into existence in 2008 when Awesome Kong first took the top prize. Since then, greats such as Mickie James, Gail Kim, Cheerleader Melissa, Madison Eagles, Asuka, Becky Lynch (just to name a few), and last year’s Bayley have taken the number one spot.
Royal Rumble winner, WrestleMania main eventer, SmackDown Women’s Champion, and ESPY award winner among other reasons lands Belair at the top. Belair was ranked at no. 23 in 2020.
