388. Gedo

This is a long shot, but anyone who has followed New Japan knows of the booking prowess of Gedo, who has written the best wrestling television regardless of promotion in the 2010s.  A former junior heavyweight star in both Japan and Mexico, Gedo might have the best wrestling mind of anyone, and perhaps (though not likely) that might be honored here.
