Next, we can look at which matches were voted "BEST MATCH" and "WORST MATCH" on each event. And specifically, who wrestled in those matches.

For instance:
WWE FAST LANE POLL RESULTS
Thumbs up 50 (21.0%) / In the middle 92 (38.7%) / Thumbs down 96 (40.3%)
BEST MATCH POLL: Roman Reigns vs. Daniel Bryan 200; Rusev vs. John Cena 10; Kidd & Cesaro vs. Usos 8 (218 positive votes)
WORST MATCH POLL: Nikki Bella vs. Paige 99; Bad News Barrett vs. Dean Ambrose 78; Goldust vs. Stardust 50 (227 negative votes)
This event had 14 people involved in the matches receiving best/worst match votes. Let's allocate out of 100 positive points and 100 negative points based on number of votes.

Roman Reigns & Daniel Bryan get 100*(200/218)=91.7 points while Rusev & Cena get 4.6 points and Tyson Kidd/Cesaro/Usos get 3.7 points.
Nikki & Paige get -100*(99/227)=-43.6 points while Barrett & Ambrose get -34.4 points and Rhodes brothers get -22.0 points.

Next, we want to adjust for the quality of the event. In this case, Fast Lane had 50 thumbs up, 92 thumbs in the middle and 96 thumbs down. We'll count the "thumbs in the middle" as half-votes for each thumbs up and thumbs down. That leaves us with 96 adjusted thumbs up and 142 adjusted thumbs down. For each wrestler, we'll multiply the "adjusted thumbs up" x "positive points" and "adjusted thumbs down" x "negative points".

The idea is that if you're in the best match at WrestleMania, that's worth more than being in the best match in Payback. What determines which events are more important than others? The number of overall votes. Likewise, if you were in a bad match, but overall the PPV was mostly enjoyed, you're not punished greatly.

So, for Fastlane, Roman & Bryan would end up with 8,803 adjusted positive thumb points (91.7 x 96) and Nikki & Paige would have 6,191 adjusted negative thumb points (43.6 x 142).

We can do this across all of the shows for a single company. Then, if we divide by total points in each bucket, we can allocate what percentage of "goodness" or "badness" in that company was driven by each wrestler.

As with anything that's wrestlenomics, it's hardly science. The best matches for one company on a single show might pale in comparison to a mid-card match on another company's show. We're not using star ratings or anything else.

Being in the majority-voted best match at WrestleMania is going to drive Roman/Seth/Brock significantly. Perhaps there would be a need to add a logarithm in there somewhere to normalize that a bit. It's possible I should just group ROH/NJPW together or separate NXT/WWE. There's a lot of options for improvement.

WON voters aren't big fans of Nikki Bella's matches on the card (as compared to the rest of the matches).

She had 13 different matches nominated for "WORST MATCH" this voting year:

WWE WRESTLEMANIA 31 WORST A.J. & Paige vs. Bella Twins 177
WWE TLC POLL RESULTS WORST Nikki Bella vs. A.J. Lee 31
WWE SUMMERSLAM POLL RESULTS WORST Divas three-team match 64
WWE ROYAL RUMBLE POLL RESULTS WORST Bellas vs. Paige & Natalya 119
WWE PAYBACK POLL RESULTS WORST Snuka & Naomi vs. Bellas 98
WWE NIGHT OF CHAMPIONS POLL RESULTS WORST Charlotte vs. Nikki Bella 24

WWE EXTREME RULES POLL WORST Nikki Bella vs. Naomi 68
WWE ELIMINATION CHAMBER POLL RESULTS WORST Nikki Bella vs. Paige vs. Naomi 118
WWE BEAST FROM THE EAST POLL RESULTS WORST Nikki vs. Paige vs. Snuka 73
The Bella army will not be pleased with this.

Conversly, Sasha Banks fared well:

WWE NXT TAKEOVER RIVALS POLL RESULTS BEST Women’s four-way 40
WWE NXT TAKEOVER POLL RESULTS BEST Bayley vs. Sasha Banks 182
WWE BATTLEGROUND POLL RESULTS BEST Charlotte vs. Banks vs. Brie Bella 8
NXT UNSTOPPABLE POLL RESULTS BEST Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch 134
NXT TAKEOVER RESPECT POLL RESULTS BEST Bayley vs. Sasha Banks 129

The most middle-of-the-road guys? Probably Luke Harper, Dolph Ziggler and Sheamus.
