Eyes On WWE: The 5 Best Women In WWE This Year

By @TrueGodImmortal

Women's wrestling is at the peak of course currently, with a number of amazing women showcasing their talent all over the world, and with a new year approaching, I thought it was time to take a look at the 5 best women wrestlers in the WWE this year. Who makes it to no. 1? Let's take a look.

5. Naomi

-This is just a technical choice because to be honest, Naomi had a disappointing title reign as the Smackdown Women's Champion, but honestly she deserved a shot to show what she can do. Her matches with Alexa Bliss, Natalya, and more were interesting, but she was secondary during her run. Her gimmick was over however for the most part, and she managed to be relevant for a majority of the year, earning her this spot over Carmella, Natalya, and Bayley, who also had solid years, but just not solid enough to claim this spot.

4. Sasha Banks 

-The most underutilized woman on the entire roster makes my list this year for a few reasons. For one, when given the opportunity to showcase what she can do, she has stepped up heavily every time. The best matches on the RAW brand have featured her and she's even managed to give Alexa Bliss some of her better matches this year after some horrible showings against Bayley and Mickie James. Honestly, I would say Sasha vs Bliss was the best moment for the RAW women this year and that has a lot to do with Sasha. Many are waiting for her to turn heel, and whether that happens or not remains to be seen, but one thing is for sure, Sasha delivers when she is called upon and we can only hope that she gets another shot in 2018. 

3. Alexa Bliss 

-For all of her great promo and character work, the current RAW Women's Champion hasn't been the best in ring performer, but her ability as a character definitely is truly undefeated for the RAW roster. She isn't the most athletic, most engaging or even most entertaining, but whether she's on commentary, talking shit to the crowd, or having horrible segments with Bayley, Alexa has been the most consistent woman on the RAW roster this year at least in terms of success.

2. Charlotte 

-Of course, Charlotte has been pretty successful over the last year or two, but her 2017 was pretty solid. Starting the year as Raw Women's Champion and feuding with Bayley, she would soon move out of the title picture and head over to Smackdown, trying out a new run as a face. While it hasn't necessarily been the smoothest transition, she has finally seemed to get comfortable in that role and she is currently the new Smackdown Women's Champion. Charlotte had a much better 2016, but she has had a very good 2017 and should be given credit for bouncing back after being traded from RAW to Smackdown. She should be the face of the brand going into Wrestlemania.

1. Asuka 

-The best woman in the company period. Asuka has killed everyone in NXT and she seems ready to move on to the RAW roster. She has been excellent through 2017, and after great matches with Nikki Cross, Ruby Riot, Ember Moon, and others in NXT, she has now moved to RAW and seems ready to dominate. She is still undefeated and doesn't seem like she will let up any time soon and one can only hope this leads to a RAW Women's Title reign that lasts for a while before she is finally defeated. Asuka is the top dog in the women's division and she is set for a big 2018 if WWE books her correctly on the main roster. Only time will tell if they do.
