Just voted in this an I'm somewhat in shock that Bobby Roode isn't walking this! He's the only one to have genuinely established himself as a main eventer this year from that selection, apart from Menry I suppose but he's been at that level before.

If you had asked me 12 months ago if I would like to see Menry or R-Truth released from the WWE, I would have said hell yes! Since then both have been two of my favourites on the roster. Particularily Henry who gets my vote.

Even though I didn't nominate him I voted Henry.

 

Bit of a confusing award since there are two or three ways of looking at it: guys who 'broke out' and became established on the big stage for the first time (Ryder), ones who already had momentum/a good push from the last few years and used 2011 to build on that (Ziggler, Sheamus, Miz - although all of them also had a few very noticeable setbacks); and then people who had been around for a while but were a 'surprise' choice to be given a big push (Henry, Truth) yet ran with the ball.

 

Henry's been good for years - in a lot of ways I enjoyed his 2008 in a similar role as much as 2011 - and has mainevented before in short feuds but this is the first real chance he's had to prove himself at the top of the card for an extended period.

 

All credit to those others for making the most of their chances, as well. This may have been the toughest one to pick.

Ziggler. Still hate the name but he's put in probably the most consistent in-ring performances this year outside of perhaps Punk, and his selling always manages to make me do that sound that men do when something looks both painful and funny/impressive.

Mysterio was more consistent in 2011, IMO.

 

Ziggler is great but he went through a period where he wasn't really doing anything. I also found some of his early Raw matches versus Kingston, Orton, etc. seemed like a letdown compared to the stuff he was doing against the same opponents last winter.
