Top 5 Female Wrestlers Of 2017 Submitted by Justin Watry on 01/11/2018 at 07:18 PM
Apparently, research shows that if you plug a bunch of stuff at the start of a column people will read it more than if it is placed at the end. Is that true? Not sure. We will find out in 2018 I guess. Here are links to click on or junk to check out...

NRW Match from June (featuring yours truly): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2FkvheQzxg

There you go. Even if it is just a click and five seconds of your time, every little bit is appreciated. Never know? Might be the greatest five seconds of your life...only one way to find out!
With the close of another year, I can honestly say that this was a great year. As many know, I crossed off a bucket list item of attending my first (and last?) ever WrestleMania in Orlando. First plane ride too for that trip. I made my anticipated return to NRW in June, which required a lot of work and dedication that only a few of you understand (video posted above). I lived up to my word of working out more and eating healthier. I moved to a new place. I was a groomsman for my buddy who married my younger sister in an epic week's worth of festivities leading up to their wedding. I got a new (and higher paying) job. I completed my first full length novel. Also, I met a whole bunch of new cool people. Big thumbs up there! In terms of columns, I admit I swayed at times from writing a lot. However, I still delivered AT LEAST one article per week and most weeks, much more than that - including one of my favorites columns ever entitled My Journey To Orlando! Feel free to Google that. Very good 2017 from yours truly.
Truth be told, I don't really do the 'new year's resolutions' thing. I have things I want to do and set out to do, which is kinda the same idea but is still different. In my mind at least, it's different. I knew I was going to Mania in April 2017. I knew I was going to wrestle once again come summer time. I knew I was moving. I knew I was going to write my debut novel. I knew about my sister's wedding. I knew I had to eat better. I don't consider these new year's resolutions really. They are just goals or ideas to accomplish. Regardless of what you call them, I did them all and can proudly say that at the end of the year. Not to beat a dead horse from a column a few weeks ago, but I strongly urge everybody to follow the Nike slogan: Just Do It!
Whatever that may be. Eat better, Go to Mania. Get into shape. Text that longtime friend you lost contact with. Call the girl you have a crush on. Ask for a pay raise at work. Seriously, take a deep breath and go get it.
Best/Worst Of Columns
Predictably, my next dozen or so columns will be year in review garbage. Best Of This. Worst Of That. The usual. If you want my typical ramblings about wrestling and other stuff, you can find me on Twitter. If not, let's get to the 2017 lists!
Top 5 Female Wrestlers Of 2017
5. Ember Moon 4. Bayley 3. Alexa Bliss 2. Asuka
1. Charlotte - For the record, I am not including anybody from the Mae Young Classic because that would be unfair. I only saw them wrestle a couple of times or in some instances, once. Not much I can do with that when discussing a full year. It was a tight race at the top between Charlotte Flair and the undefeated Asuka. Both dominant and both so far ahead of everybody else it isn't even funny. Luckily, the two are on separate brands and will not cross paths for a long time. If I could go with a tie, I would. The reason The Wooomens Champ edges out the former unbeated NXT Womens Champion is simply because of the structure of the shows. WWE is considered main roster. NXT is not. I know Triple H and others will argue this all day long, but you still leave NXT for the main roster when all is said and done. There is some cross over and that may change. Until then, it is WWE > NXT in importance. I believe 2018 is the Year of Asuka (as Michael Cole claimed on Christmas Raw last night). We'll see in December 2018...
Not exactly major news, but I am happy to announce that I will be attending WWE RAW on March 5th in Milwaukee. Exactly one year removed from FastLane 2017 in the exact same building. Kinda cool timing. Tickets have been purchased (great seats), and the wheels are in motion for a fun evening!
