AEW star and reigning IWGP, ROH, and AAA Tag Team Champion Cash Wheeler has reacted after he was omitted from the prestigious PWI 500.
Roman Reigns’ legacy has continued to grow exponentially over the last year as he has solidified his place at the top of WWE as the Unified WWE Universal Champion and now has also topped the 2022 PWI 500.
The 2022 edition of the PWI 500’s evaluation period ran from July 1st, 2021 until the end of June 2022. During that time Roman Reigns conquered John Cena, Finn Balor, Big E, Goldberg, and Brock Lesnar to maintain one of the most dominant runs in WWE history.
Kazuchika Okada takes second place on the list with former AEW World Champion CM Punk taking third spot – the first time he has featured on the list since 2013.
However, one glaring omission from the list is FTR’s Cash Wheeler. The editor of PWI took to social media to explain that Wheeler’s absence from the list was a result of a mistake and Wheeler playfully responded, challenging WWE’s Roderick Strong – the man named at the number that should have been Wheeler’s.
“Ok @roderickstrong, there’s only one way to settle this. I want my spot back. I need argument leverage when I argue with the office.”

A similar unfortunate thing happened in 2019 when Kairi Sane was left off of the PWI Women’s 100 when she was originally meant to be in the number 16 spot.
