    The 2019 WC AEW/Indy/Puro/Lucha Fave Five!

    Once again it's here! One of the only I contribute something!

    Here's how it works: everybody PMs me with their five favorite Independent, Puroresu, and/or Lucha wrestlers of 2018 in order, with #1 being your favorite. The wrestlers will earn points as follows:


    #5 on somebody's list = 10 points
    #4 on somebody's list = 20 points
    #3 on somebody's list = 30 points
    #2 on somebody's list = 40 points
    #1 on somebody's list = 50 points

    At the end the points will all be added up and I'll do a rundown of every superstar who earned points, culminating in the official WC fave five of the Independent, Lucha and Puroresu scene in 2019. Everyone not in the WWE is fair game. If they did time on the circuit in the calendar year of 2019, then you can put them on your list. This includes guys all the NXT UK guys also working for other promotions and also people who worked for other promotions before jumping over to WWE/NXT. Pick from promotions such as AEW, ROH, Impact Wrestling, CHIKARA, PWG, CZW, AAW, AIW, EVOLVE, SMASH, Beyond, Lucha Underground, Progress, DEFY, CMLL, New Japan, NOAH, AJPW, ECCW, GCW, DDT, Ice Ribbon, Stardom, SHINE, etc. All fair game. Remember tag teams are allowed as a nomination.

    is there a reasonable way for me to watch a sufficient number of good matches within the next 9 days to answer this?

    So does this include Impact, ROH, EVOLVE, NWA Powerrr!!! and MLW?

    This is the Non-WWE Fave Five if we wanna keep it shorter.

    I was gonna keep them separate but decided to include them because they haven't been around that long.

    tbf we should of never included ROH for years in this given it hasn't been an indie since Sinclair bought it. I don't really class somewhere like NJPW as an indie either, so to me this was always the non-WWE fave five list.

    My predictable list is in

    Not really, but it's not a super serious "best grapz evah" list so just go with what you've seen like I will.

    Funny looking at the first few years of this and seeing who was popular back in the day compared to now (i.e. Adam Cole for example)

    Will get one out shortly.

    If you got time, yes. Enough to pick fave stand outs anyway.

    I didn't do research, just based it off what I've seen through the year. Submitted. Figured I'd jump on this one since I've been shitty at doing anything with these of late.

    NXT UK guys, as long as they work other companies, are allowed

    I know, but I view this like others as a "best of not in WWE" list more than anything.
