    After a hectic Takeover/Survivor Series weekend, we are all but on the road to the Royal Rumble which indicates the start of a new year. This thread, however, is a place where we look back at 2016 and recognise all the fantastic users right here, on PW Boards!

    State the award and the individual you wish to put forward for nomination. You can say why you're nominating if you wish. From that we'll make a nominee list and poll them off to see who takes home which awards. You can nominate up to 3 people but if you see someone already listed, you don't need to mention them again as they'll already be on the list (no not that one!).




    Here are the categories and last year's winners.

    Sirsok

    Sirsok has been around on the PW Board since 2009 so can't really count him as a newcomer. We'll say any one from 2014 onwards qualifies.

    Really cool guy who added a lot to the board. Hope he pops back in before the Rumble time.

    They're all excellent but I'll go for gimmick since it was his last year and he set a very high standard.

    I remember A Brad Maddox Guy wrote some funny stuff during the Draft so I will vote for him.

    Anybody who has joined post 2014. So myself, Cheese Wagstaff, Advanced Ghost, Neil3030, Paulie21 and Monokne would be the most prominent of the bunch I think. Apologies to any other newcomers I have missed.

    5 Star Match Award (Best Thread) -

    Wrestling News & Rumours Thread - the ones I'd likely vote for have been mentioned but considering this is the source & spark to many other threads it'd be an injustice to not get nominated.

    PW Boards NXT Alumni/Call-Up Tournament - I'm a total mark for these threads.
    ---

    Antonio Cesaro Award (Best Newcomer) -

    I may edit into this one, never know who's new.
    ---

    Ric Flair Award (Best Rant) -

    There hasn't been too many this year as it seems a lot of people just don't care enough to be bothered anymore. Obviously there's Bounty Hunter's recent one but a quick search brought up two that I'll nominate, both by Moneymaker.

    http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=99892842&postcount=67 - covers all the bases; rant about booking, Reigns & Rollins returning heel.

    http://www.boards.ie/vbulletin/showpost.php?p=98809851&postcount=157 - Post-Fast Lane non-rant rant.

    Not a nomination but I actually found one I'd forgotten about Reigns during the Rumble match, that was so bad I had actually erased it from my memory
    ---

    Shawn Michaels Award (Poster You'd Like to See Return) -

    Moneymaker. Hasn't posted in almost 3 months.

    Now that I think about it I haven't seen Stereomaniac here in ages considering he won the Zack Ryder award last year.

    Thanks so much for your nominations so far. I'll leave this thread open for a day or two more so people can update their choices with any missed categories or so that others can cast their nominations. Then I'll sort out the different categories and we can get to voting.
