Here are my votes, exclusive to WWE and TNA:

Wrestler of Tha Year - Randy Orton

Match of Tha Year - HBK vs. Taker, WM 26

Feud of Tha Year - Daniel Bryan vs. The Miz

Moment of Tha Year - Monday January 4th (I can't remember the last time I was more excited for a night of wrestling.)

Breakout of Tha Year - This is the toughest, most competitive category, I think. Wade Barrett.

Show of Tha Year - WrestleMania, because of Shawn-Taker.

Tag Team of Tha Year - Beer Money

Women's Wrestler of Tha Year - Natalya

Wrestler of Tha Year
Randy Orton

Does that need explaining? Orton was at one point the most over guy in the company for a reason. (I say at one point because Cena's latest little stint has pushed him into a huge reaction just like before)


Match of Tha Year
Shawn Michaels vs. Undertaker - WrestleMania 26

Other one that needs little explanation. Not as good as the WM25 match, but still a 5-star match.


Feud of Tha Year
John Cena vs. Nexus

The only feud that made me care. It mattered. These guys made a random impact, it felt fresh in some odd way.


Moment of Tha Year
Nexus debuts on "Raw" - attacks John Cena

Without a doubt my favorite moment. The ring being torn apart was outstanding to see on a fed show.


Breakout Wrestler of Tha Year
Wade Barrett

He's over. I'd love to say someone else, but Wade Barrett is just over. He has work, but I can see him doing big things.


Show of Tha Year
HardCore Justice

I'd really love to say Mania, but the show was bad as a whole. One match won't make me love a PPV. It's a shame it took TNA but this felt like an ECW reunion done right. The EV2.0 thing went on WAY too long, but the Pay Per View was amazing.


Tag Team of Tha Year
Beer Money

...'Nuff said.


Women's Wrestler of Tha Year
Natalya

She's amazing. Plain and simple.

Wrestler Of Tha Year = Daniel Bryan

Match Of Tha Year = Daniel Bryan vs Dolph Ziggler
(bragging rights)

Feud Of Tha Year = Mickie James & Tara (not as good as the Kim vs Kong feud but still an enjoyale watch)

Moment Of Tha Year = Nexus debut trashing Raw, an anarchic 15 minutes of brilliance

Breakout of Tha Year = Daniel Bryan, though an honourable mention to the Swagger Soaring Eagle

Show Of Tha Year = Wrestlemania, simply because it is the one PPV I can remember where the best match was the finale!

Tag Team Of Tha Year = MCMG, 2 excellent fueds with Beer Money and Gen Me, and get the best match out of the Dudleys in years.

Women's Wrestler Of Tha Year = Nattie Niedhart, although i'm always happy watching Layla!

Interesting feedback.

I think the ROH stuff is bang-on too. Dante, Generico-Steen has been a great feud, that looks like it's going to be blown off at Final Battle. Have a prediction?

I'd say Generico will win because I don't think he's going anywhere, and I can't picture him working without the mask. In ROH, stips matter ... so this will be an interesting climax to a great feud.

I'm really starting to get into ROH -- I really want to be invested in a wrestling product, and it's nearly impossible to do with WWE and TNA.

And TWK - You could definitely make the argument that, top to bottom, Death Before Dishonour was the show of the year. But to me, anything that has HBK's last match has to be in there, especially as good as it was, with the drama, etc.

Related: would anyone be disappointed if HBK came back for one more match?

Dante Ross said...

They already have Generico talking a tiny bit so his character is already evolving and not being shit on. I say Steen wins this one. Here's a cool video hyping their feud perfectly.

If HBK comes back that would suck so damn hard. There is no reason for him to.

Andrew Gray said...

ROH is great at putting these videos together. Here's another one, the final hype video for Final Battle. It's excellent.

If I wasn't going up north for the weekend, where's there' no interent access, then I'd definitely be getting the show. That's a lot of bang for your buck at 14.99.

As for HBK ... I suppose I'd be disappointed if he wrestled again. But at the same time, selfishly, I'd love to see another Shawn Michaels match. I wouldn't blame him for getting another Mania payday, either.

It think he'll have another match somewhere down the line. Supposedly he's posting a video on Friday on his twitter page regarding his future with WWE (doubt it has anything to do with having another match, but still interesting).
