Michelle McCool, The Best in 2009?

Michelle McCool - wwe - divas wwe

Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) is getting ready to release their annual "PWI Female 50" list, that ranks the top 50 female wrestlers in wrestling promotions in North America.
Well last year everyone was pretty much in agreement (I think) that Mickie James deserved the number one slot.
But this year number one has been leaked before the list comes out (on September 7th) and it's already started some controversy.

This years number one is none other than Michelle McCool.
Even PWI admits it's a questionable decision because of her relationship with The Undertaker (they got married in June if you hadn't heard), her stealing the Faithbreaker from AJ Styles (although AJ himself said he was flattered she took the move), Team Lay-Cool being a rip off of The Beautiful People and generally Michelle's rumored arrogant and condescending attitude.

But according to PWI, Michelle was the first woman in WWE history to hold both the WWE Divas and the WWE Women's championships, in 2009, she scored pin fall victories over Melina, Gail Kim, and Mickie James, from July 1, 2009, through June 30, 2010, she held (and co-held) the WWE Women’s championship for 325 of 365 days.

You know....I thought the PWI list was about talent.
All of Michelle's accomplishments they list are because the writers wrote that.
If the writers wanted it, Tiffany could pin Melina, Gail and Beth Phoenix all at once, and hold both the Divas and Womens titles at the same time.
She could go on a tear like Goldberg and go undefeated for a year.

Now don't think I am totally downing Michelle here, she's come a long way since the 2004 WWE Diva Search.

But I'd like to see PWI rank their wrestlers because of in-ring ability, mike skills etc.

Not because of who they know.

PWI rankings have always been based on what the writers write or the bookers book. It's nothing new.
