Definitely echo the Kyle Matthews mention. Performance to performance, nobody in wrestling is as consistent as him - though he lacks any true classics even great matches outside of his feud with Tempers. Hechicero is probably second.

 

I doubt I could make an actual order but a top three (based on highs) would most like be

Cesaro

Negro Casas

Virus

I still have to catch up on a lot of Casas' work this decade, but from what I've seen he always delivers in a big match setting and is frequently the highlight of any trios match. I actually prefer 2000's work to his 80's/90's stuff.

Likewise. Old man Casas is my favourite act of his - especially how he played the vulnerability of it in his feud against Rush.

In no particular order, names that come to mind....

 

Danielson

Walter

Sabre

Reigns

Sane

Asuka

Almas (Sombra)

Styles

Black Terry

Hero

Omega

Okada

Cesaro

Zayne

Starr

Strong

Sasha

Rush

Park

Riddle

Naito

Casas

Nakamura

Trevor Lee

 

Almost everyone on that list - for one reason or another - has some down (or completely absent) periods in the decade, but they also have strong work that I would consider noteworthy when the dust settles.

What have been the absolute best matches from The Bar? Its easy to forget that Cesaro has been part of three excellent tag teams in the last four years alone.

I most like their two PPV matches with Rollins and Ambrose. Iron Man match against the Hardyz was also very good, as was the match they won the titles from New Day with that unique finish.

 

I'm not sure how highly to rate The Bar though. They seem to be a team which consistently has good - very good matches but I don't think they've had a single one that crossed the 'great' threshold. Compared to The Usos or The Revival their top tier matches are a bit weak.

Rollins and Ambrose matches definitely, the Usos match at Survivor Series was also very good.

The thing with the Bar was they didn't have that key rival on Raw. I think the Jeff Hardy injury was bad luck as was the Shield revival being absolutely cursed.

Excited to see good programs with the Usos and the New Day.

Remember that championships don't mean you are the best worker.
Anyway I am shocked that nobody mentioned Sami Zayn
Yea the nerdy Jewish writers never put him over but he always performs and makes everyone look like a million bucks.
P.S. I'm joking about the writers. Just sick of the lack of improv in modern product.
