    Given it has been quite the revival (pun intended) for tag teams this year could we have a best tag team category?

    Still 7 days to get your nominations in guys


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,484 ✭✭✭Chain Smoker


    Feud of the Year Heath Slater vs the draft

    Best Wrestler of The Year AJ Styles

    Rookie of the Year No clue how to gauge this one, but Alexa has been good since moving up

    Most improved Wrestler Charlotte (I'd argue the Miz was as good as he has been for a long while)

    Womens Wrestler of the Year Asuka

    Best Match Of The Year Nakamura vs Zayn, but tbh I just can't think of many others and find it too hard to pick a specific Styles one

    Worst Match of The Year Taker vs Shane, 20 boring ridiculous minutes as everyone just sat and waited for a middle aged man to badly hurt himself

    Worst Wrestler of The Year Jack Swagger, mostly for his utterly embarrassing effort in what will surely prove to be his last chance https://youtu.be/Db93RBOs5bs?t=1m30s

    Worst Feud of The Year Brock vs Ambrose, utterly pointless

    Promo Of The Year that Miz one

    Tag Team Of The Year Owens and Jericho

    Angle of The Year either Final Deletion or whatever Del Rio and Paige are at

    Podcast/Videocast of the Year Lapsed Fan or Between the Sheets, several hours of ridiculous and borderline impenetrable geeking out every week


    Edit: Highly WWE focused list as I've watched **** all this year


  • Registered Users Posts: 8,868 ✭✭✭Andersonisgod


    Feud of the Year: Kazuchika Okada vs Tetsuya Naito (this was the year that the rivalry which will define New Japan for the next 5 years began)

    Best Wrestler of The Year: Kazuchika Okada

    Rookie of the Year: It can't be anyone other than Matt Riddle

    Most improved Wrestler: The Miz

    Womens Wrestler of the Year: Io Shirai (again, she's the only candidate for this award)

    Best Match Of The Year: Kazuchika Okada vs Naomichi Marafuji (King of Pro Wrestling)
    Kazuchika Okada vs Hiroshi Tanahashi (Wrestle Kingdom 10)
    Kenny Omega vs Tetsuya Naito (G1 Climax 26)
    Kazuchika Okada vs Naomichi Marafuji (Gi Climax 26)
    Kazuchika Okada vs Tomohiro Ishii (Gi Climax 26)

    Worst Match of The Year: Any number of those unnecessary 30 minute + NOAH main events

    Worst Wrestler of The Year: Takashi Iizuka must be put out to pasture.

    Worst Feud of The Year: Brock Lesnar vs Dean Ambrose (I don't like Ambrose but even so, this feud was cruel.)

    Promo Of The Year: Tetsuya Naito post match at Invasion Attack 2016. He's just achieved his lifelong goal of winning the IWGP Title, against the Ace of New Japan no less, in an arena that has embraced him and taken them into their heart. All of the things he had fought for and so desperately wanted in 2013 were finally his but Naito (impossible to govern) rejects all of it and tosses the prestigious IWGP Title into the air, turns and leaves the ring on his own terms. Iconic.

    Tag Team Of The Year: The Young Bucks

    Angle of The Year: I've loved the stuff that New Japan are doing with Hirooki Goto this year, and that it has all led to him facing his childhood friend Katsuyori Shibata at Wrestle Kingdom is the cherry on the cake.

    Also a mention for the NOAH vs New Japan stuff, all of which was tremendous, in particular Katsuhiko Nakajima as the invading heel.

    Podcast/Videocast of the Year: The Eastern Lariat
