While some may consider 2014 not particularly eventful for professional wrestling, it turned out that A LOT happened. Some of it wasn't even remembered by year end, while other developments may well be remembered decades from now.
In counting down the Top 50 Wrestling Headlines of 2014, Canadian Bulldog's World considered the following criteria:
Was the event unique to this year? Or does it happen quite frequently?
What were the overall ramifications for said event?
Did the development have a profound impact on how this wrestler or promotion did business?
Did this development receive any mainstream publicity outside of the wrestling community?
When possible, we have tried to add a date to each development. Some of them combine more than one event (such as when a certain wrestler quit a certain company and later in the year announced he was joining a certain MMA promotion - just as an example), and some lump a string of developments to demonstrate an overall trend.
Ready? Here we go!
