1950, Wrestler and later referee Billy Stack working as rep for Whipper Beverages
not sure if any of the other wrestlers did this, some of the bottles show up on e-bay now and again and get big bucks

besides the 50's (much was advertising disguised as coverage) , the mid to late 80's looks to gets the most wrestling coverage in the papers

this is from 86, a few weeks in a row they actually ran (same) rankings in the Star, guessing these came from one of the mags

These rankings may have been complied by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observor.

The ratings were based more on in ring ability as apposed to who was being pushed at the time. Note how high Bret Hart is in the rankings even though he was strictly a mid card tag team guy at the time.

could be with the Japanese names in there, Wrestling Eye I think also had similar ratings, based on 'ability'

Would the Observer have been on the Star's radar at that point?  Is it possible that a local writer like Greg Oliver submitted the ratings?

not sure what the Observer had , I do have some 84-85 early ones so I checked after Mike's comment above, I believe these came from Wrestling Eye as I have a couple issue with almost the same rankings, not tot say they didn't take them from the Observer , I just dont have 86' issues
