    Him doing his best to smother both Roode and Nakamura's WWE careers at birth didn't exactly make me enamored with him. I've been waiting years for a wrestler to come out to silence and I'm pissed off that idea was wasted on Yelly McOversell.

    Shit I forgot about Usos vs New Day at Summerslam, that deserves a mention for match of the year. Was the best of their matches.

    Usos should really be nominated for group/tag team, they successfully reinvented themselves after seemingly getting kind of stuck in a gimmick that overstayed it's welcome a bit.

    Kurt Angle back in WWE was a pretty decent surprise too. Of course everything that happened afterwards is debatable but eh this place seemed a bit more merry at the time.

    I forgot about The List of Jericho for Angle of the Year, it was fun and just classic Y2J and I also can't believe I forgot about the Festival of Friendship for Promo of the Year.

    Dumbest Moment of the Year (new):

    Kazuchika Okada and Katsuyori Shibata trading headbutts
    Jinder Mahal becomes WWE Champion
    Goldberg headbutting a door
    Vince McMahon restarting the XFL
    Bray Wyatt "is" Sister Abigail
    Paige's relationship with Alberto Del Rio


    The first two of those just stuck out at me. For Okada vs. Shibata, for me, it ruined a great match because it was so insanely fucking stupid. It wasn't just a headbutt ala Kevin Owens headbutting Vince McMahon, these two were just smashing their heads together as hard as they could after all the shit that's come out regarding concussions in sports.

    As for Goldberg, the guy came off like some dumbass lunk in the gym, even more so than usual, as he headbutted a door, the door to his dressing room, as he was coming out for his entrance; the dumbass cut himself open and knocked himself woozy for a bit.

    Jinder winning the WWE Championship was pretty easily the dumbest moment

    So we're including what happens in wrestlers' personal lives as something to nominate and vote on now? Because I don't recall Paige and Del Rio's relationship being part of a TV show.

    My choices for some of them. I can't really think of any clear cut choices for the others right now (at 3:30 AM on Christmas Morning) so I skipped them.

    1. Wrestler of the Year
    For me this is The Miz. AJ Styles is a close 2, but Miz has been on fire the entire year, even when not given the big angles. How he hasn't been WWE/Universal Champ in the past 2 years is beyond me.
    2. Promo of the Year
    Anything John Cena did during his Roman Reigns feud.
    3. Worst Wrestler of the Year
    How this isn't Enzo Amore is beyond me.
    4. Surprise of the Year
    Jinder Majal winning the WWE Championship one month after being nothing but a Jobber has to be the biggest surprise.
    5. Group/Tag Team of the Year
    Authors of Pain
    7. Moment of the Year
    Teddy Long thinking he's the new RAW GM. "My Bad."
    8. Best Angle of the Year
    John Cena vs. Roman Reigns
    10. Rookie of the Year
    Lars Sullivan
    11. Non-Wrestler of the Year
    Kurt Angle (Sure he had 2 matches but he's a non-wrestler).
    12. Worst Angle of the Year
    Kurt Angles son.
    13. News Story of the Year
    TLC PPV changes due to illness.
    14. Title Reign of the Year
    Miz Intercontinental Championship.
    16. Feud of the Year
    John Cena vs. Roman Reigns
    19. Finisher of the Year (New category)
    Black Mass

    I'll second that nomination for Enzo being nominated for worst wrestler simply because I want to talk about why he isn't (at the very real risk that he wins it).

    For me, Enzo is perfect in his role as the smack-talking, chicken-shit heel who really can't wrestle but still manages to win even though you want to see him lose.

    I actually think that he is wasted on 205 Live. He would be a good asset to a TV title division in a Crash Holly sort of role - "just how is he going to escape with the title this week?"

    Enzo Vs Corey was wildly amusing last Monday Night.

    Now there's a feud.

    The word is overused but I genuinely think Crash Holly is the most underrated wrestler of his generation. "Allegedly well over four hundred pounds" still cracks me up to this day.

    Says something that the lackeys have been more memorable than the World Champion. Hopefully, we get a decent tag run for the Singhs/Bollywood Boys.
