Kylie Rae earns highest ranking ever for a woman on PWI 500

Kylie Rae landed the highest ranking ever for a woman on the 2020 PWI 500, Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s annual top 500 pro wrestlers list.

In July, Editor-In-Chief Kevin McElvaney announced plans to integrate women wrestlers into the long-running pro wrestling magazine’s top 500 pro wrestlers ranking. PWI recently released this year’s list and Rae debuted at no. 78.

This accolade makes the IMPACT Knockout the highest-ranked woman in the history of the PWI 500. This is a feat that was previously attributed to Chyna, who came in at no. 106 in 2000.

Rae joins several other notable women who made this year’s ranking including former IMPACT World Champion, Tessa Blanchard. Like Blanchard, Kylie Rae won the world title of a promotion when she became a two-time Freelance World Champion back in December of 2019.

The Chicago-native is one of the top intergender wrestlers in the world. She also holds Black Label Pro’s Midwest Championship and the Sabotage War Of The Genders Championhip.
