In what should be a surprise to absolutely no one, WWE RAW superstar Asuka has taken the number 1 spot in this year’s ranking of the best female wrestlers in the world. Asuka was the reigning NXT Women’s Champion for the entire Pro Wrestling Illustrated evaluation period before eventually vacating the title due to injury.
Asuka became the first Japanese female wrestler to top the list and follows in the footsteps of countryman Kazuchika Okada who secured the number one spot of the “PWI 500” earlier this year.
The rest of the top 10 were Charlotte Flair, Alexa Bliss, Sasha Banks, Bayley, Io Shirai, Natalya, Sienna, Naomi, and Kairi Sane.
