Earlier today, Triple H announced that the NXT Year End Awards will presented during the kickoff show to NXT TakeOver: San Antonio. As with the first awards, the same categories are in play with the following nominees: Male Competitor of the Year: Shinsuke Nakamura Finn Balor Samoa Joe Bobby Roode Female Competitor of the Year: Asuka Bayley Nia Jax Superstar of the Year: Shinsuke Nakamura Asuka Finn Balor Bayley Samoa Joe Nia Jax Bobby Roode Tag Team of the Year: American Alpha The Revival DIY The Authors of Pain TM-61 Breakout Star of the Year: No Way Jose Ember Moon Andrade "Cien" Almas Peyton Royse & Billie Kaye Sanity Match of the Year: NXT Championship - Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Finn Balor - NXT 7-13-16 NXT Women's Championship - Asuka vs. Mickie James - NXT TakeOver: Toronto NXT Tag Team Championship - American Alpha vs. The Revival - NXT TakeOver: The End NXT Women's Championship - Bayley vs. Asuka - NXT TakeOver: Dallas Singles Match - Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Sami Zayn - NXT TakeOver: Dallas #1 Contenders 2 out of 3 Falls Match - Sami Zayn vs. Samoa Joe - NXT 2-17-16 NXT Championship Steel Cage Match - Finn Balor vs. Samoa Joe - NXT TakeOver: The End NXT Tag Team Championship 2 out of 3 Falls Match - The Revival vs. DIY - NXT TakeOver: Toronto Singles Match - Bayley vs. Nia Jax - NXT 7-20-16 Singles Match - Tye Dillinger vs. Bobby Roode - NXT TakeOver: Toronto NXT Championship - Finn Balor vs. Neville - NXT 3-2-16 NXT Championship - Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Samoa Joe - NXT TakeOver: Toronto NXT Tag Team Championship 2 out of 3 Falls Match - The Revival vs. American Alpha - NXT 7-6-16 I think most of these are no brainers. For Male & Female Competitor of the Year, that easily should go to Nakamura and Asuka. For the overall Superstar of the Year, that'll probably go to Nakamura. For Tag Team of the Year, I'd say that DIY will come out with it though I'd personally vote for the Revival as they've just been flat out phenomenal with every time they've worked with. For me personally, this could be pretty open. Almas is much better as a heel and he's coming along nicely. Sanity is growing on me, though I think that's due in large part to Nikki Cross' performance. Peyton Royce & Billie Kay are also starting to grow on me, though I think they still need a good deal of work. As of right now, Ember Moon is little more than a cool entrance and cool finisher. I'd say it'll go to No Way Jose as he's the fun babyface of the bunch. As for Match of the Year....I think there are genuine arguments to be made for a good number of the nominees. I wouldn't be surprised if Zayn vs. Nakamura gets the nod here as people went crazy over it, understandably so as it was a helluva match. I'd probably vote for it if it wasn't ultimately an exhibition match with no real build up and the winner already guaranteed. Overall, I think I'm going with the Revival vs. DIY at the TakeOver event in Toronto as it was simply outstanding on every level. It featured fantastic action, storytelling, drama and delivered a most satisfying payoff; some have called it the greatest tag team match in all of WWE history I think it's most definitely in contention. As for the TakeOver Event of the Year, I'd probably vote for Dallas. Nakamura vs. Zayn was crazy good, Asuka established her undisputed dominance among the women of NXT by beating Bayley and American Alpha finally captured the tag titles from the Revival.
