Disagree with HBK being number 1. He's had a decent year but he spent loads of time not wrestling, so it's a bit crazy he's number 1.

 

Plus I don't get how HBK can be number 1, yet Jericho be like number 24? No idea how Undertaker and HHH are above him too. And Matt Hardy ahead of Jericho? Kind of makes the list seem a bit bias against Jericho, who by all accounts has had an excellent year where as Matt's been solid but nothing spectacular.

Powerslam give their reason for Jericho being at 24 by saying he had a very poor start to his comeback with the short lived Orton feud and then the terrible JBL feud, they say he looked rusty as hell for long periods and couldn't carry lesser workers until after his heel turn when he really picked up

I suppose so then considering it is November to November. But even then what did HBK do that was so great?

 

Kennedy feud was a bit crap, did nothing until March when he had an excellent feud with Flair. Then had an utterly confusing feud with Jericho and Batista until about June where the matches were decent but the feud was so counterproductive. Admittedly his feud with Jericho was great, but Jericho carried the ball with that considering HBK spent half the time selling injuries or just having to interfere in matches.

 

Since then we've had his JBL angle which is about as believable as Lilian fancying Viscera. So yeah can't really see that one.

Michaels reasons from PS: Carried all manner of opponents to the best matches of the year, short intence feud with Kennedy yeilded strong bouts on Raw, got the best match Flair had had in years out of him at Mania, exceptonal promos before Bakclash match with Batista, feud with Jericho and all the greatness that came from that with loadd of MOTY contenders
