Top 5 Of August 2022

I’ve decided to do a minor format change for these monthly posts. Where before it was “Wrestler of the Month”, I’ve decided that I’m going to do my own Monthly Top 5 Rankings instead. It’s not really much of a change at all since previously, I was already doing “Runners-up”. Now I just have to rank them. So here we go…

#5: Hikaru Shida (NR)



Hikaru Shida just barely edged out Britt Baker for the #5 spot for August. Baker (2-1-0) was more fixture than feature than she’d typically be, especially heading into All Out but I had Shida moving past her on day 31 of August due to her workload and just finishing strong. Shida had 6 matches (5-1-0) across Dynamite and Dark/Elevation. She scored the pinfall in the big tag match on the All Out Go-Home Dynamite and actually elevated Elevation with her feud against Emi Sakura over the Regina Di WAVE Championship.
