    Daniel Bryan. There is no alternative apart from maybe Cena or Punk based on wrestling ability.

    Cena easily. He has been putting great matches when they count or even for fun. He also cuts good promos. Not only that, but by looking at it both at a kayfabe and IWC, Cena got injured put over Bryan and guess what he came back in a faster rate. Once he came everyone was having doubts if he could wrestle and he had and has been having great matches every single time he is in the ring.

    I'll settle on Bryan although he's had a couple of sour spots. Big year for him.

    It has to be either John Cena or Daniel Bryan, you really can't go wrong choosing either of them.

    I'll give it to Daniel Bryan, despite WWE making him look like an idiot. I have no idea what we have with Daniel Bryan because WWE will not allow him to do much outside of keep the beard and scream Yes. I enjoyed very little of what he gave us, outside of awesome matches, during that main event run. I feel that was WWE's intention. The more I think about it, the less blame I place on DB.

    People have really soured on Punk and Orton, haven't they? No one has mentioned Orton and Punk only once. It hasn't been the greatest year for either, in that respect, but both, especially Punk, determine mentions. Especially moreso than any of the solo members of the Shield, as they work 75% of their matches in 6 man tags. They've stood out as a group, incredibly so, but until the last 1-2 months, none have been spotlighted by-and-large as single's wrestlers.

    It's Punk for me. He did it as a heel WWE Champion and after he returned and was rebooted, as a face "Best In the World." He had one of the two best matches this year, and I'm looking forward to his handicap match with the Shield this Sunday, because if it were anyone else, I'd groan, especially since I think he can win on Sunday.

    I'd love to say Cena, but that's not being objective. As for Bryan, he spent half the year in a tag team. He's had a better year, from Summerslam to now match-wise then anyone else, but he hasn't been a one-man show all year. Perhaps that's grasping at straws, but it's the final reason why I'm going with Punk over Bryan.

    It's definitely grasping at straws. Bryan was the highlight of pretty much every tag match he was in this year. He pretty much earned his push by mastering one of the greatest hot-tag/house-of-fire sequences of all time.

    I only mentioned him because he's been the glue that's held many Shield matches together this year. Great wrestler. Great shit talker. Great presence. Notice him, damn you!

    But since LSN is going to make me actually discuss the topic, I'll just come out with it: Of course Daniel Bryan is the best wrestler of the year. Come on now.

    I agree with LSN on how Punk has been overlooked - look at his year in PPV matches/feuds.

    Royal Rumble, vs Rock
    Elimination Chamber, vs Rock
    MOTY candidate against Cena on RAW
    Wrestlemania, great build to MOTY candidate vs Undertaker
    Payback, vs Jericho
    MITB, RAW MITB Ladder match
    Summerslam, great build to MOTY candidate vs Lesnar
    NoC, vs Heyman/Axel
    Battleground, vs Ryback
    HIAC, vs Ryback/Heyman
    Survivor Series, w/ Bryan vs the Wyatts
    TLC, vs the Shield

    His year fell off a little post-Summerslam in terms of match quality but then he was involved in one of the feuds of the year throughout that period with Heyman and now seems to be transitioning into a feud with the Authority. The trust that has been placed in him is immense - two matches against Rock, Streak match, long feud with Heyman and given the role of helping the Wyatts. Not bad at all.

    Having said all that, Daniel Bryan's run from when he started trying to prove he was not the weak link in Team Hell No through the summer, culminating in defeating Cena at Summerslam is one of the finest stretches of performances I have ever seen. As Coco said, along with a fan-participation catchphrase, he harnessed a hot-tag/house-of-fire sequence that got the crowd going better than anything in recent years.

    For that, Bryan is just my Wrestler of the Year but the gap between him and Punk is by no means large.

    This man is not bullshitting. The percentage of the time that he is involved in a segment or match and does something that makes you say "wow" is about 90%.

    He probably should not win, but absolutely deserves to be nominated.

    Not gonna be a broken record with the WWE picks. I get it. WWE is all most people watch, which is totally fine. I would be rather upset if Kevin Steen, Chuck Taylor, Adam Cole and Michael Elgin didn't get a mention.

    Is there a way to appreciate indy wrestling without coming across as a massive knob? I sure haven't seen it.

    Sure there is, watch NXT.

    Sami Zayn versus Antonio Cesaro
    Sami Zayn versus Jack Swagger
    Sami Zayn versus Bo Dallas

    I dream of Sami Zayn versus Ryback.

    If such a match is anything like Ryback's matches with Daniel Bryan count me in.
