E-mail your votes to me at logan.scisco@topper.wku.edu (or you can post your votes as a post below).  I will confirm that I have received your vote via a return e-mail within 24 hours of you sending it (or post).  The deadline for voting will be midnight next Saturday (January 7th).  I will post the winners late Tuesday evening on January 10th (probably around 10 p.m. EST or so), with a link to a Heisman-style spreadsheet letting people see what received votes for each category.

      • MrMaye

        No problem.

  • Stranger In the Alps

    LOL at the guys abstaining from voting for blog poster of the year in this comments section.

  • Rick Poehling

    *Wrestler of the Year
    1. AJ Styles (Objectively, the only choice)
    2. Kyle O’Reilly (Had my MOTY and two great no-holds barred matches with Cole)
    3. Marty Scurll (Rapidly becoming my favorite wrestler in the world)

    *Women’s Wrestler of the Year
    1. Becky Lynch (She’s the best worker they have)
    2. Asuka (…..except maybe for her)
    3. Charlotte (couldn’t think of a third, didn’t watch enough women’s indies this year)

    *Worst Wrestler of the Year
    1. Eva Marie (Yep)
    2. Eva Marie (Yep)
    3. Eva Marie (Yep)

    *Tag Team of the Year
    1. The Revival (No doubt – everything they do is just about perfect)
    2. The Briscoes (Good work all year, multiple 4* matches)
    3. Johnny Gargano/Tomasso Ciampa

    *Match of the Year
    1. Kyle O’Reilly vs KUSHIDA – Best of the Super Juniors (Yeah, it’s a repeat from last year for me, I really don’t care. This was the best wrestling match I saw all year)
    2. Chris Hero/Tommy End vs Fenix/Pentagon Jr – PWG Battle of Los Angeles Night 2 (This was the match I watched the most last year; it’s not normally my style of wrestling, but I was drawn into it and captivated for whatever reason.)
    3. Kazuchika Okada vs Tomohiro Ishii – G-1 Climax (WATCH THIS MATCH. Just non-stop stiff shots with almost zero resting. Worthy of the 5* rating Dave gave it.)

    *Feud of the Year
    1. AJ Styles vs John Cena (AJ won every match, but ‘Beat up John Cena’ was a great rallying cry for the entire year.)
    2. Kyle O’Reilly vs Adam Cole (Two bitter enemies that fought all year in ROH’s best feud, and it involved the World title.)
    3. Shinsuke Nakamura vs Samoa Joe (Best thing aside from Revival/DIY in NXT all year.)

    *Best Pay-Per-View
    1. NXT Takeover: Dallas (I was there. I’m biased.)
    2. ROH Final Battle (ROH closed out an uneven year with a great PPV that had all the right guys going over to set up for what should be a great 2017, hopefully.)
    3. PWG Battle of Los Angeles (If I have to pick a night, Night 2. The whole tournament blew me away.)

    *Worst Pay-Per-View
    1. WWE Roadblock (YIKES. This sucked.)
    2. Nothing I can remember
    3. Ditto

    *Moment of the Year
    1. Kyle O’Reilly finally wins the ROH World title (A year-long chase that was probably the best thing that ROH did all year.)
    2. AJ Styles wins the WWE World title (No one deserved it more.)
    3. Shinsuke Nakamura debuts at NXT: Dallas to the largest live pop I’ve ever heard

    *Worst Segment (Moment) of the Year
    1. The. Old. Day.
    2. Bob Backlund/Darren Young

    *Promotion of the Year
    1. NJPW
    2. NXT
    3. PWG

    *Television Show of the Year
    1. WWE Smackdown post-brand split (Good stories, good characters, good writing)
    2. ROH Weekly TV (Plagued with problems, but almost every episode spent at least half the time in the ring, putting on good matches.)
    3. NXT

    *Most Improved Wrestler
    1. Matt Riddle (There’s simply no other choice. He’s Kurt Angle all over again.)

    *Biggest Wrestling News Story of the Year
    1. The big 4 from Japan (Styles, Nakamura, Anderson, Gallows) head to the WWE

    *Best Blog Column of the Year
    1. Ioan Morris’ NJPW recaps (I value education in reading, and no one educated more about the NJPW product than Ioan. Best recapper on the Blog.)
    2. Wrestling Observer Flashbacks (Most fun I had reading anything on the Blog this year, long may they continue.)
    3. Bayless covers the indies (EVOLVE, PWG, etc) (See my answer to Ioan Morris – Bayless is excellent at isolating and showing why you should watch something. My indy education went up a ton this year thanks to him.)

    *Blog Poster of the Year
    1. Kenny Reigns (Nicest guy on the blog)
    2. Biff (One of the more cerebral guys on the blog)
    3. Matthew Maynard Adams

    *Most Loved Blog Topic (Something that created lots of great conversation here)
    1. WWE business model debates
    2. Wrestling Observer Flashback debates
    3. Everything else, I like it here.

    *Worst Blog Topic (Something you got sick of talking about and wished would go away)

    • PhilStubington

      I chucked a few UK things in votes and I think there will be a scattering of votes for NJPW as well.

    • TheWWFSpellsDanger

      Well by “WWE” you’re effectively talking about 4 (soon to be 5) different wrestling shows. They’ve gone beyond creating their own WCW. They’ve also created their own ROH & PWG. Soon they’ll have their own Progress, and I’m guessing their own Shimmer could be only a year or two away. The E is going to dominate b/c the E has the 4 different well promoted and exposed brands.

    I voted Charlotte as my womens wrestler of the year AND wrestler of the year

  • The Dude

    *Wrestler of the Year
    1 – AJ Styles : This was clearly a hall of fame year for him by winning the WWE title after a decade as TNA’s franchise talent and a year as Japan’s world champion. The program was Cena was a dream match that delivered and he even miraculously got a great match out of Roman at Backlash. Hell, he even made an extended program with a jobber work. From the Rumble to TLC, AJ was the guy who got the top reaction in the world’s biggest company all year long.
    2 – Miz – In any other year Miz would be #1 for what he’s done. Personally, I find Miz to be more entertaining than AJ. He’s clearly the top heel in wrestling, He is, pardon the pun, awesome at playing his character and this year he upped his game in the ring (the matches with Ziggler, Ryder and that Four Way with Owens and Cesaro) and out (Maryse, the gold ring vest, his promos). Miz dominated the IC title for 10 months with an array of challengers to deliver an all-time great IC title reign that rivals Honky and Perfect and seems to be enroute to a top Mania match vs Daniel Bryan.
    3 – Matt Hardy – After decades of just being the other Hardy Boy, Matt reinvented himself with a thoroughly entertaining character on-screen while also being the creative genius who found a new way to present a wrestling match.

    *Women’s Wrestler of the Year
    1 – Charlotte Flair – Her ring work is in a class of its own for women competitors
    2 – Bailey – I find her cute as a button schtick to be very enjoyable
    3 – Sasha – Athletically the woman best able to keep up with Charlotte, although I’m over their feud by now and would rather see Bailey take the top face spot.

    *Worst Wrestler of the Year
    1 – Roman Reigns – I’ve never seen a top pushed wrestler with less to offer. He can’t wrestle. He can’t talk. He has no charisma. He’s not the biggest in size or muscle. He has no definable character. He repeats the same two moves six times per match. Just terrible.
    2 – The Club – The one who isn’t Gallows seems to be the default create-a-wrestler before any moves or body features are selected.
    3 – Seth Rollins – I have no use for any of the SHIELD guys. And while Seth can have better matches than the other two, the fact that he recklessly injures guys with his running powerbomb earns him this spot.

    *Tag Team of the Year
    1 – The Hardys – They are one of the best teams of all time, and this year they managed to reinvent their act while still being able to go in the ring and then won the tag titles again.
    2 – Enzo & Cass – The Most (possibly only) entertaining thing on RAW. Their sing-along ring entrance was instantly over.
    3 – Hype Bros – While I actually think Mojo is terrible and this team is a waste of Zack’s talents, but anything that gets Zack on my TV regularly is worth a runner up vote.

    *Match of the Year
    1 – Jeff Hardy vs Matt Hardy – Final Deletion – As a match the bumps and high spots are as good as anything Jeff has ever done; but what makes it a winner is the presentation: Matt found an outside-the-box way to cinematically present pro wrestling that advances the artistic nature of sports-entertainment.
    2 – John Cena vs AJ Styles – SummerSlam – This was the best traditional match of the year even without the dream match factor. I loved the counters to counters and both guys then busting out moves from beyond their traditional moveset.
    3 – IC Title Ladder match – WrestleMania – This was the match I enjoyed the most as a fan as Zack Ryder gets a long overdue big win and Wrestlemania moment.

    *Feud of the Year

    1 – Dolph Ziggler vs Miz
    2 – John Cena vs AJ Styles
    3 – Kallisto vs Baron Corbin – sure match-wise the women on RAW were better, but I was never invested in their storyline; whereas I really like Corbin and wanted to vote for him somewhere and these matches were a good showcase for him.

    *Best Pay-Per-View
    1 – Survivor Series – This is my favorite PPV concept in general, and the brand split really freshened it up while the long team matches delivered
    2 – Backlash – a Good start for the Smackdown solo PPV era (that carried over into the next two shows as well)
    3 – WreslteMania – Zack wins a belt, a big spotfest from Shane and a blow away great women’s match put this on the list despite the dud of a main event.

    *Worst Pay-Per-View
    I haven’t bothered to watch half the RAW solo PPVs so it’s probably one of those. Of what I’ve seen anything main evented by Reigns is generally terrible so let’s go 1 – Money in the Bank, 2- Extreme Rules and 3 – Battleground

    *Moment of the Year
    1- Zack Ryder wins the IC title
    2 – Sting’s HOF induction
    3 – Shane’s jump off the cell at Mania

    *Worst Segment (Moment) of the Year
    See I tend to fast forward the guys I don’t like so I don’t see much I hate but let’s say
    1 – Seth Rollins injures Finn Balor a Summer Slam
    2 – Roman wins title at Mania after super boring match
    3 – New Day break Demolition’s record (hey I like Demolition)

    *Promotion of the Year
    1 – If Smackdown counts as a promotion they get my vote, otherwise WWE
    2 – TNA
    3 – I don’t watch NXT, Japan or ROH and Raw is terrible so that leaves the middling CWC/205 Live by default just for Jack Gallagher

    *Television Show of the Year
    1- Smackdown
    2 – Impact Wrestling
    3 – The Main Event (half the time this is the show to watch to get my Zack fix. #RyderorRiot)

    *Most Improved Wrestler
    1 – The Miz
    2 – Zack Ryder (yea I’ve always thought Zack is good, but he also consistently adds to his moveset: this year he added the El-Bro Drop, that Rude Awakening Suplex reversal and came up with a nice looking double team finish for his tag team with Mojo).
    3 – AJ Styles (he had a lot of great athletic moments in TNA all those years but not too many great matches; now he actually puts together great matches every PPV)

    *Biggest Wrestling News Story of the Year
    1 – WWE Brand Split
    2 – TNA’s financial woes yet continued survival
    3 – AJ Styles signs with WWE
