    The first Slammy Award is for Angle of the year.

    Lots of different choices sent in by voters and it was a tough call between the top 3, but one man rose to the top


    and the Slammy for Angle of the Year goes to..................

    ANGLE OF THE YEAR
    1st Place - The battle of House Hardy (MNG) - 13pts
    2nd Place Teddy Long turns on Steph (Mr Guppa) - 10pts
    3rd Place - Benoit signs with BCW (Beakerjoe) - 7 Pts

    4th Place - Samoan Dynasty (BH) - 6 points
    5th Place - Lou Thesz the Heel (Necro) - 4 Points

    Well done MNG on collecting your first Slammy of the year. Lots of choices sent in by voters, but these 5 make the places.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    The next Slammy Award on the list is Best Male Wrestler of the year.

    A lot of different votes again, but one man goes straight to the top.............


    and the Slammy for Best male Wrestler of the Year goes to..................

    BEST MALE WRESTLER OF THE YEAR

    Well done Mr Guppa on collecting your first Slammy of the year. Again lots of choices sent in by voters, but these Cesaro is the clear winner. Its the second time in 3 years that Cesaro has claimed the prize having won it for me back in 2016 if my memory serves me correct. Maybe something to think about next year when drafting.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,753 ✭✭✭✭beakerjoe


    The next Slammy Award on the list is Tag Team of the year.

    One out and out winner here, though many strong battles for second and third place, only 1 team was winning this this year.

    The next Slammy Award on the list is Double Pick of the year.

    This award is for the best double pick of the game. It didnt have to be used as a tag team, but which poster got best value out of one pick by drafting 2 guys in one go.

    Congrats MNG on the fourth win :) Deserved for sure with the balance between write ups and roster which I can never seem to get right :P

    I'm absolutely delighted to have won best write ups (and match) though, thanks for all the votes.

    I do it for fun, but it's really nice to be acknowledged.

    Thanks again to beaker for running the whole show, muchly appreciated.

    Wow, 4 times. Wasn't expecting it but it's a lovely surprise. Thank you to those who voted for me. I was convinced there would be a new winner this year. My top three for overall winner were Mr. Guappa, Necrominus and Spongey1975. I thought the standard was very high and would not have begrudged any player of the win.
    We now go live to the offices of Monday Night Grappling where the recently fired GM William Regal is clearing out his desk.


    Regal: It's a bloody disgrace after everything I've done for this promotion. There's no decency left in this world.

    Suddenly there is a huge cheer from an adjoining room and people can be seen excitedly rushing down the corridors.

    Regal: What the devil was that? You there, what's going on. Oh, it's you Ibushi. What on earth is going on?

    Ibushi: Number one! Grapplemania! Draft!

    Regal: What? Are you saying we won the Draft this year?

    Ibushi (nodding): Number one! Yes!

    Regal: So you're telling me I have just joined Jim Cornette and Dusty Rhodes as the only Authority figures to preside over a winning Draft for this promotion - and the bloody toerags are still firing me?

    Ibushi (shrugging): All...best...future...endeavours!

    Thanks again to those who voted and to beakerjoe for overseeing the contest.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,804 ✭✭✭A Brad Maddox Guy


    Fair play MNG, had a feeling you might be winning back that crown. I'm delighted to have done as well as I did, joint second in rosters was a nice surprise.

    I've just realised looking at the slammies that I completely misunderstood best double pick and all my votes there went to the final round :pac:


  • Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 51,214 Mod ✭✭✭✭Necro


    Yeah I went with Mr Guappa, MNG and Kolido for overall tbh.

    Write ups were Mr. G, Brad, and MNG

    Rosters were Furious Red, Kolido and MNG.

    I really liked Furious Red's roster and it's a shame he didn't get finished or he probably would have scored higher for me.

    With Kolido, I was surprised his roster didn't get more love as it was stacked with NWO VS The Brood.

    I kinda weighted my overall votes of roster & write ups then which scored decently for Kolido imo.

    Thought MNG, Brad or Mr. Guappa would win it tbh.

    Also I did NOT realise Mr. Guappa had played before :pac: Thought it was his first time out and gave him best newbie with Kolido second - hope you discounted that Joe given Kolido was the only new player. Whoops!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,713 ✭✭✭Mr. Guappa


    Well done MNG, a deserving winner. I'm thrilled to poll so well, and very happy to be taking home 3 Slammy's! Thanks again to beakerjoe for his effort in running this, much appreciated. Looking forward to next year.


  • Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 22,670 Mod ✭✭✭✭Bounty Hunter


    Congratulations MNG, the man to beat again after an amazing 4th title. Great job running everything Joe as well, it's great to see so many peoples feds getting big votes in all categories including the slammies

    Wish I didn't leave it so long between my first 2 shows and my second 2 shows, the latter two were rushed and I didn't get to flesh out the second half of some feuds more like Okada's side of the main event. Some feds really had very well developed feuds everything from heel Lou Thesz antics to Heyman bringing back Benoit but MNG deserved it with not only his WONDERFUL House of Hardy match but also Y2J/Omega and more. Like Seeing Becky get the face vote of the year, shows how well written that was. Actually wish I had used my time more wisely with regards reading too as bits like hers deserved not to be read in the middle of reading 5 others shows in one go.
