Drew McIntyre has been a great babyface while Aleister Black has the whole cool outsider thing going for him. The female award goes to Asuka, nobody else should be even close. Overall competitor of the year is a toss up, but I won't be surprised to see Asuka get it. TakeOver of the Year will go to either Chicago or WarGames. Tag Team of the Year I can see going to Fish & O'Reilly because they're so fresh & new in everyone's minds, and of course they're the current tag champs. Breakout Star of the Year will probably go to Black. Future Star of the Year is probably either the Street Profits or Kairi Sane. Match of the Year will probably be Bate vs. Dunne Rivalry of the year might also go to Bate vs. Dunne.
