Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated’s Extra Mustard released the site’s top 10 wrestlers of 2017, and taking the top spot this year was New Japan Pro Wrestling’s IWGP United States Champion Kenny Omega.
WWE Champion AJ Styles ranked number two on the list, followed by Roman Reigns, John Cena and Braun Strowman rounding out the top 5. Below is what the article had to say on naming Kenny Omega number one:

Kenny Omega is better than AJ Styles.
And Omega was certainly better than Styles in 2017. The Cleaner is the alpha and the omega when it came to pro wrestling this past year. Omega is otherworldly in the ring, delivering memorable affairs with Minoru Suzuki, Kazuchika Okada, Michael Elgin, and helped Juice Robinson to the finest match of his career.
Unlike Styles and Reigns, who have the WWE wagon entrenched firmly behind them, Omega has created his own buzz in America. Along with some of the best bouts of the year, an ability to enhance his opponent, and a must-see intangible, Kenny Omega is Sports Illustrated’s Wrestler of the Year for 2017.
