15Made the Top 15 of the PWI 500 in 2014
One of the most popular publications as it applies to wrestling is Pro Wrestling Illustrated. The publication is famous for providing an annual list of talent that stood head and shoulders above the rest. Their annual PWI 500 ranks the top wrestlers from all over the world. It is not relegated to just those in major promotions, but includes those that are competing actively on the independent circuit as well. In 2014, Cesaro was ranked 13th by the publication. Wrestlers are always very interested in their ranking, especially given how many are considered when the ranking is put together.
