16 pro wrestling highlights from the month of March.
By Chris Campbell, Matthew Whetstone, Nate Sherman, and Domi Simpson
In response to the top 5, all of us got together with our “bookerman” and wanted to expand things a bit. After all, Wrestlemania was more than five, the month of March was full of sights, and we’ve got a good collection of ’em, brother!
All together, we have a top 25 for you, but with all the rules, we have to break it down (like DX) to a sweet sixteen and an honorable nine to make things easy for all. We promise you won’t be disappointed! From sixteen to one, go down to see the best of the best!
Enjoy your sweet sixteen of pain, folks!
