Who Topped The PWI 500 List?, Pretty Ricky Character Update

Nick Paglino

Pro Wrestling Insider has once again released its top 500 pro wrestlers list, and this year, making it the second time he has appeared on the list in 9 years, WWE’s Triple H is the number one rated pro wrestler according to PWI. Rounding out the top ten behind Triple H this year is Chris Jericho, John Cena, Edge, Randy Orton, Nigel McGuinness, Hiroshi Tanahashi, CM Punk, Sting and Ultimo Guerrero.

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that despite vignettes for Ron Killings’ "Pretty Ricky" character not appearing on TV in several weeks, the character has not been completely scrapped by the WWE creative team. The main issue at this point is that aside from Vince McMahon’s personal love of the "Pretty Ricky" gimmick, there aren’t many others in management that are behind Killings mainly due to his age. They feel that at the age of 37, and with WWE going through somewhat of a "youth movement," it’s not a wise decision to invest too much into a Killings push.
