ESPN has released its rankings for the top 10 wrestlers after the first half of 2024. The men's division features top athletes from companies like WWE and AEW who have been at the top of their game. However, some of the inclusions and snubs have been controversial. The fans are not happy with such picks and pointed out how the list could have been better.

The ranking included Cody Rhodes as the number one ranked wrestler. To follow him was the AEW duo of Will Ospreay and Swerve Strickland. At the fourth and fifth spots were Raw Superstars like Gunther and Drew McIntyre. AEW's experienced campaigners like Bryan Danielson and Jon Moxley occupied the sixth and seventh spots in the list.

The last three spots belong to WWE's Damian Priest and the AEW duo of Kazuchika Okada and MJF. The fans did not complain about the majority of inclusions. However, they doubted if the AEW duo of Moxley and MJF deserved to be on the list. Jon has not been that good in the last few months and MJF has just returned to action missing the majority of the year due to an injury.

Fans unhappy with the snub of Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins

On the other hand, fans are unhappy with the exclusion of Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. In particular, there has been a backlash from the fans on the exclusion of the visionary, who has been one of the best wrestlers of the year. The revolutionary was an integral part of WrestleMania XL and was named the MVP of the event by the Rock himself. 

Roman was responsible for the highest sales in the merchandise. The star wrestler has been an irregular, but his aura was unmatchable. Post his exit, Smackdown has become stale with fewer things to look forward to. Barring them, the fans were happy with the placing of Cody at the top of the rankings. The inclusion of Damian and Okada was lauded by the fans.
