my big takeaways

- i need to check out this Jiro "Ikemen" Kuroshio if he placed 6th overall
- Hideo Itami, the once great KENTA, barely made the list. How the mighty have fallen.
- Likewise, Mayu Iwatani is really low, i thought she was a fan favorite of STARDOM. I'm guessing Oedo Tai have really taken the spotlight over everyone.
- a giant stuffed panda defeated the likes of AJ Styles, Kento Miyahara, KUSHIDA, or Hirooki Goto.
