With the recent return of CM Punk to AEW Wrestling after a 7-year hiatus from wrestling, he brings back with him a question about how he gets to declare himself the best in the world.
I mean, what is he the best in the world at? Pipe Bombs? UFC? Taking time away from wtrestlig? Having fans chant his name?
Or does he mean the best wrestler in the world? Certainly not. Some half painted daredevil named Darby Allin claims to be the best in the world. As does Shane MacMahon.
So who really is the “Best in the World”?
To help solve this dilemma, I reached out to the legend himself, former NWA-Hammerlock UK wrestler, Tax Williams, and asked for his thoughts.
Here was my list, in possibly no particular order, except for 1 and 2;
Bret the Hitman Hart
Robby (Don’t call me Bobby) Roode
Tax’s List: (he did current and recent wrestlers)
Bret “Hitman” Hart
Zack Sabre Jr
Bianca Bel Air
Honourable mentions to;
Who’s on your list?
Is CM Punk there? Darby Allin? Sting? None of those guys made our list, so who is your top 5?
