4. Willow Nightingale

The girl with the biggest smile in pro wrestling is showing just why she deserves it. It doesn’t matter who Willow Nightingale is squaring up against in the ring, she could be facing the pure incarnation of good itself but you would still find yourself cheering for Willow Nightingale.

With a powerhouse moveset that would normally clash with it, it is a testament to Willow Nightingale’s ability that she can make such power work with a wholesome and genuine character. The Babe With The Power is known for simply how beloved she is with the fans in a connection few can make.Teaming with Solo Darling as The Bird & The Bee, Willow was much clamored for choice to be included in AEW’s inaugural women’s tournament. With a crooked moonsault and gut-wrench powerbomb as pristine as her’s, it is easy to see why. Willow is a true and true kindhearted babyface which is so rare to see in the often edgy and jaded indie scene.

It doesn’t matter if she’s going toe to toe with fellow stalwart wrestlers such as Chris Dickinson, diva-style matches as in For The Culture or tagging with her long-time partner, the only thing that stands out stronger than Willow’s smile is her ability to entertain the crowd.
