Re: Ability to absorb punishment
I would assume both Jeff hardy and John Cena would be given 10s by PWI. Both guys spend a lot of time getting "beat up" in their matches and kick out of many pins with their, "undying will to succeed." Cena vs. The Miz I Quit atrocity first comes to mind.
As far as what it means, who knows? PWI is a kayfabe magazine that ranks wrestlers by booking. The arbitrary number is probably closely associated with kicking out of pins after finishers.
