Professional Wrestling

Because we’re wrestling journalists — and Buzzfeed contributors — we’ve decided that we needed to start creating a Top 10 list based on each Wrestler of the Week. We’ve also decided to not include any criteria for the list, because we’ve been told by experts in the list-making field that it would just muddy our ability to explain why we are right. In honor of #OwenWeek: the Top 10 Other Brothers.

For every Wrestler of the Week, there are performers who came before or after them that either learned from their work or influenced it. As a recurring bit of the festivities, we’ll be looking at some of those performers and how their work fares relative to our Wrestler of the Week. This week, it’s Batista, Warlord and the Ultimate Warrior.
