The story so far: The nomination threads are in the Awards forum, but for some reason nobody is able to post in there. A few people have sent me lists via PM, but it's just easier to have them in a thread, so here they are, positive, negative and British wrestling awards categories, in one thread.

If the Awards forum gets sorted, this thread will probably close and they'll move over there, where they belong. But until then, the show must go on!

We have discovered today that poll voting does work in the Awards forum even if you can't post in it. So when the voting itself begins in January, all voting threads will still be in the Awards forum. But for now, we're here in On Topic.

 

Nominations are open for about two weeks from the time of posting this thread (19th December), at which point the proper voting will start - you probably have until around 2nd January.

If your nominations change between now and then due to anything great happening (Bate/Dunne III on NXT this week, for instance), please post your changes in a separate post, otherwise I'll probably miss them.

 

Please nominate up to three choices for each of the following awards, clearly stating the specific award your nominations are for.

Female Wrestler of the Year

Match of the Year

Wrestling Event of the Year

Here are mine

Wrestler of the Year:

Neville - thought he had an incredible year. Carried the entire cruiserweight division on his back, showed masses of character, it's just a shame he disappeared for the final few months.

AJ Styles

Pete Dunne - from someone I'd never seen a year ago he's become one of my favourites to watch.

Female Wrestler of the Year

Alexa Bliss

Peyton Royce

Match of the Year

Pete Dunne vs Tyler Bate, NXT Takeover Chicago

New Day vs Usos, Hell In A Cell

NXT War Games

Wrestling Event of the Year

UK Championship Tournament (Night 2)

NXT Takeover Chicago

Summerslam - the only one of the big shows this year where there wasn't really anything I strongly disliked!

Wrestling TV Show of the Year

NXT - it's not what it was but I still watch it every week, and enjoy it most of those

GLOW

Feud/Angle of the Year

Samoa Joe vs Brock Lesnar - everything up until the bell rang was superb

Aleister Black vs Velveteen Dream

Jericho vs Owens / the Festival of Friendship

Moment of the Year

The Hardys return at WrestleMania - what a pop!

"Why is my name on the list?"

Ciampa turns on Gargano

Babyface of the Year

Tyler Bate

Johnny Gargano

Braun Strowman - he'll never be an underdog but because they've booked him so well he's now one of the best they have

Heel of the Year

Neville - I just love the adaptations he made in-ring and out to make himself more dislikeable

Kevin Owens

Elias - one of the only guys who can get booed by everybody. Doesn't matter if it's "go away" heat - it's still heat and it's 100 times better than half the crowd cheering him

Funniest Moment of the Year

Reigns the night after WrestleMania

William Regal's little office non-sequiturs

The Fashion Files (at least at the beginning)

Tag Team of the Year

Authors of Pain

The Usos

Breakout Star of the Year

Braun Strowman

Aleister Black - another guy I'd never seen a year ago, now one I look forward to seeing each time he appears

Pete Dunne

Wrestling Podcast of the Year

E&C's Pod of Awesomeness - when they've got a good guest, they're great

(side-note: I wish I could vote for SCG Radio here. I had some mental health issues early this year, and listening to a new episode of SCG each week was genuinely one of the only things that could relax me enough to get out of bed and carry on some mornings. The Monday Night War timelines calmed me down on my way to counselling. The Oaken Table helped me so much. But having to wait two months at a time for a new episode... I know they're busy but those are some long gaps between episodes. Too long to be able to vote for them here. Hoping they get back to a regular schedule in 2018)

-

 

Worst Wrestler of the Year
 
Lio Rush - that clip of him no selling a powerbomb off a ladder through a table was the final straw. This year's Solomon Crowe.
Bray Wyatt - I hated everything he did this year. The first of two wildly undeserving WWE Champions in 2017
Jinder Mahal - he's the other one. He's improved when he's been in there with the likes of Styles. But that title win was worse than JBL. WORSE THAN JBL I TELL YOU.
 
Worst Match of the Year
 
Undertaker vs Reigns - just sad to see how broken down Taker is now.
Brock vs Strowman - a colossal letdown. Strowman survives being crushed by an ambulance, but one F5 will put him down?! 
House of Horrors - abominable
 
Biggest Letdown of the Year
 
Joe vs Brock's finish
Strowman vs Brock's finish
NXT stars on the main roster - mainly Nakamura, but also Roode, and Asuka a bit too
 
GTFO
 
Bray Wyatt
Dolph Ziggler
 
(Note: I almost put Brock here but the Styles match saved him!)
 
Stupidest/Worst Moment of the Year
 
The Wyatt/Orton projections at WrestleMania
House of Horrors
Jinder Mahal becomes WWE Champion

British Wrestler of the Year

Female Wrestler of the Year - Alexa Bliss, Asuka,

Match of the Year - Lesnar vs Strowman vs Joe vs Reigns (Summerslam), Pete Dunne vs Tyler Bate (Takeover, but I can't remember which one), Aleister Black vs the Velveteen Dream (TakeOver: War Games)

Wrestling Event of the Year - TakeOver War Games, Royal Rumble (just because it's the Rumble), TLC (mainly for not having Bray Wyatt in a dress)

Wrestling TV Show of the Year - Ride Along, NXT,

Feud/Angle of the Year - Usos vs New Day

Moment of the Year - Hardys returning. AJ regaining the title in Manchester. An American crowd chanting 'UK!' at Dunne vs Bate.

Babyface of the Year - AJ Styles,

Heel of the Year - The Usos, The Miz

Funniest Moment of the Year - Randy Orton's face after back-suplexing one of the Singhs onto the announce table and almost killing him. There has to be a gif of that somewhere.

Breakout Star of the Year - Braun Strowman. Its not even close.

 

Worst Wrestler of the Year - Jinder Mahal. Baron Corbin. Big Cass.

Biggest Letdown of the Year - Braun Strowman losing to one F5 in the long-awaited singles match vs Lesnar. Jason Jordan's unveiling.
 
GTFO
Kurt Angle wrestling - no problems with him as a GM, but numerous times in the Shield match and the Survivor Series, he took a bump and I thought he was paralysed. Just no more wrestling.
 
Stupidest/Worst Moment of the Year
Maggots on the canvas at Mania. Randy Orton selling maggots on the canvas. House of Horrors - specifically when Orton was bearded in the taped bit, then turns up clean shaven in the arena.
