SLAM!'s Wrestling Rankings

Whether or not an angle or storyline is being played out well also affects the outcome. These rankings and opinions are those solely of SLAM! Wrestling's writers.

Nick Tylwalk's Breakdown:
Chris Jericho retained his undisputed title and the top spot atop the latest version of the rankings thanks to a big assist from the nWo. Will he get booed as a heel at WrestleMania in Toronto? Probably not, even working against someone as over as Triple H... Given the WWF's love of three-way matches, it's possible Angle isn't out of the title picture just yet. It's hard to figure who his dance partner would be if he's not in the title match, plus he has history with Stephanie McMahon... If you missed the 2/18 Raw, let's just say that the writing team created a very convenient excuse for keeping The Rock off camera for a few weeks if he still has work to do on The Scorpion King... Of all the surreal things happening in the WWF, I'd say the Goldust-Rob Van Dam feud ranks highest on my "List of Things I Never Thought I'd See." I expected RVD to get a main event push later this year, but with the nWo around all bets are off... Undertaker-Flair at WrestleMania? Thanks but I'd rather not... Say what you want about Hogan, but the man has a knack for being in the right place at the right time. Who else could be out of wrestling and waltz back into a feud with The Rock? Now someone just has to get him some looser jeans to help him flee the scene of his ambulance attacks faster... Count me as one of the people surprised that the APA got the tag team shot at WrestleMania... Hey, didn't you used to be Christian? You know, the guy who finished off the phrase, "Edge and..." ... Expect the next rankings update in two weeks.
