The Top Ten

Without a doubt #1. He was Universal champion the entire year. And almost every defense was good, the only bad one was Daniel Bryan at Elimination Chamber because that match was short. He had Heyman, Jimmy Uso, and Jey Uso by his side. He has had many nicknames: Head Of The Table, Tribal Chief, Island Of Relevancy, The Big Dog. He's been in most of the top 10 best rivalries of the year too, and for matches. The Edge and Bryan Wrestlemania match was the best and that is in the top 10 Wrestlemania main events. Nobody could stop him this year, and he has now held it for 2 years and has many more of them to go with the belt.

Roman Reigns has been Universal Champion the entire year and each of his matches, promos and feuds delivered. Alongside his cousins the Usos and the wise man Paul Heyman, the "Head of the Table" has defeated opponent such as Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens, Edge, John Cena, Cesaro, Rey Mysterio, Finn Balor and Brock Lesnar. After such a great year, the fans are more than ready to acknowledge their Tribal Chief.

Bianca Belair had an incredible 2021, starting off the year by winning the women's Royal Rumble match and then defeating Sasha Banks in the main event of the first night of WrestleMania 37.

4 Seth Rollins Seth Rollins Colby Lopez is an American professional wrestler and actor who is signed to WWE under the ring name Seth Rollins. He is the Current Intercontinental Champion.

Seth Rollins has not won any championships in 2021, but his character work has been nothing short of amazing (just like his fancy suits). He had great feuds and matches with Cesaro, Edge and The Miz, as well as a great performance at Survivor Series.

5 Edge Edge Adam Joseph Copeland is a Canadian actor and professional wrestler. He is currently signed to WWE, where he performs on the Smackdown brand under the ring name Edge.

Although Edge doesn't perform on a full time basis, every time he does, you know you're in for a good time. His promos are very intense and he has had dream matches with Seth Rollins, even bringing back the Brood entrance from his days as a member of the Brood with Gangrel and Christian.

Big E started off the year as Intercontinental Champion and soon after won the Money in the Bank contract which he later cached in on Bobby Lashley. Since then he has been a solid champion and has been having great matches.

7 RK-Bro RK-Bro

Randy Orton and Matt Riddle might be an unlikely duo, but it definitely worked out. These two have consistently had the most entertaining segments and matches on Monday Night RAW in 2021. even winning the Raw Tag Team Championships. Being paired with Orton is clearly giving Riddle knowledge he wouldn't have otherwise so great year for him. And on Orton's side, the man has been breaking records this year, for example, he is now the WWE Superstar with the most pay-per-view matches. Looking forward to see what they do in 2022.

8 Becky Lynch Becky Lynch Rebecca Quin is an Irish professional wrestler currently signed to WWE under the ring name Becky Lynch, performing on the RAW brand, where she is a former SmackDown Women's Champion and RAW Women's Champion.

Becky Lynch returned at SummerSlam 2022, winning the Smackdown Women's Championship on her first night back since her pregnancy and ever since she has been proving why she is "The Man". After being drafted to RAW, with Raw Women's champion Charlotte Flair being drafted to Smackdown, the two exchanged titles.

Brock Lesnar made his shocking return to the WWE after a one year hiatus at SummerSlam 2021 following the Reigns vs Cena match. He has been in a feud with Roman Reigns for the rest of the year. Now you might be surprised to see him this far up on the list and that is simply because of how fun it is to watch Lesnar on TV. He has a completely new look with the Viking ponytail and his farm overalls, and he is now a good guy (or babyface if you're familiar with wrestling terms). He has had entertaining segments with Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, Adam Pearce and Sami Zayn.
