WR's Best of 2015 Wrestling Awards

Post by cero2k » Dec 28th, '15, 15:22

Another year on the history books. In 2015 we saw a lot of wrestlers pass on, we saw double champions, Aztec Medallions, Cena didn't win a single world title, but Reigns did; WWE hired every single independent wrestler and NJPW got closer to their plans of replacing all the jr division with gaijins. But it wasn't all good, because Mojo Rawley is still a wrestler. It's time for the Wrestling Revolution's Best of 2015 Wrestling Awards

I took the liberty to add some categories and remove some that i felt were a bit repetitive.

Submit one winner and one runner up. You may use a tag team for all individual awards aside from Wrestler of the Year, Worker of the Year, best on the Mic.

Match of the Year:

Wrestler of the Year (best overall):

Worker of the Year (best matches):

Woman of the Year:

Woman’s match of the Year:

Best Non-wrestler of the Year:

Storyline of the Year:

Worst Storyline of the Year:

Feud of the Year:

Worst Feud of the Year (this should be between guys who are on a least the upper mid-card- something the company really wanted to be a big deal, but totally failed):

Promotion of the Year:

Worst Promotion of the Year:

Best Individual Show of the Year (must be a single event. If you want to nominate an episode of a TV program, you must give the date):

Worst Major Show of the Year (must be a PPV or indy show, no episodes of TV shows):

Best TV Show of the Year:

Worst TV Show of the Year:

Best on the Mic (overall best promos):

Promo of the Year (single best promo):

Booker of the Year (if you don't know who is booking the promotion in question, just put down the name of the promotion):

Rookie of the Year:

Comeback of the year (either a comeback from injury or retirement, or a revitalization of someone's career):

Most Improved Wrestler of the Year:

Best debut (or return to a promotion) of the year:

Announcer of the Year:

Worst Announcer of the Year:

Best Babyface of the Year:

Best Heel of the Year:

Best Turn of the Year:

Worst Waste of Talent in a promotion:

YOUR Mark Out Moment of the Year:

In-ring Spot of the Year:

Most Shocking Moment of the Year:

Non-kayfabe News Story of the Year:

Match of the Year: Johnny Gargao vs. Timothy Thatcher- Evolve 51
RU: Roderick Strong vs. Zack Sabre Jr.- Evolve 45

Wrestler of the Year (best overall): Roderick Strong
(Roddy hot only had spectacular matches, but I really felt like he came into his own on the mic)
RU: AJ Styles
(Honorable mentions to Kyle O’Reilly, Jay Lethal, Kazuchika Okada, and John Cena. Sasha Banks probably would have had a shot at this as well had she not been called up to the main roster and ruined)


Worker of the Year (best matches): Roderick Strong
RU: AJ Styles
(Honorable mention to Kyle O’Reilly)


Tag Team of the Year: Young Bucks
RU: reDRagon


Stable of the Year: Suzuki-Gun
RU: Bullet Club

Woman of the Year: Sasha Banks
RU: Asuka/Kana


Women’s match of the Year: Sasha Banks vs. Bayley- NXT Takeover: Brooklyn
RU: Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch- NXT Takeover: Unstoppable (though maybe I’ll give the four way from the February Takeover show a re-watch)

Best Non-Wrestler of the Year: Dario Cueto for Lucha Underground
RU: SoCal Val for Evolve

Storyline of the Year: Bayley’s quest for the title
RU: Ivelisse, Angelico, and Son of Havok must work together


Worst Storyline of the Year: Divas Revolution
RU: BDC
(Dishonorable mentions to the constantly teased dissension in the Authority)


Feud of the Year: NOAH vs. Suzuki-Gun
RU: Ethan Page vs. Johnny Gargano
(Honorable mention to Brock vs. Taker)


Worst Feud of the Year: BDC vs. The Rising
RU: Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt
(Dishonorable mention to Tanahashi vs. Yano)

Promotion of the Year: ROH
(A very strong year in the ring and their strongest year ever at the box office, plus eight and a half months of awesome booking that was dimmed by a poor last third of the year. ROH also expanded their TV coverage, their number of PPVs, and showed a willingness to spend money on talent that will hopefully continue into next year as Lethal, Elgin, and reDRagon need new contracts)
RU: Evolve
(Had a great year in the ring and creatively, but didn’t really feel like they moved forward at all, and they’re still a million years behind on DVDs)
(Honorable mention to Lucha Underground, whose TV schedule will likely lead to them getting boned in these awards)


Worst Promotion of the Year: WWE
RU: TNA (both TNA and New Japan had their problems this year, but New Japan delivered better in the ring and while New Japan’s problems were new [for this era in the company’s history] TNA’s problems were the same mistakes they’ve made time and again for the past decade.)


Best Individual Show of the Year: NJPW Wrestle Kingdom IX
RU: ROH War of the World 2015: Night 2
(Honorable mention to NJPW New Beginning in Osaka 2015 PWG BOLA Stage 2, and ROH Aftershock Tour: Philadelphia)


Worst Major Show of the Year: TNA debut on Destination America
(You can dismiss this as me hating on TNA if you want to, but I really think that this was the best opportunity TNA had to right the ship, and they completely failed at it)
RU: NJPW G1 Climax 25: Day 3


Best TV Show of the Year: Ring of Honor Wrestling
RU: Lucha Underground

Worst TV Show of the Year: Raw
RU: Smackdown


Best on the Mic: Kevin Owens
RU: Dario Cueto


Promo of the Year: Alex Riley from the 3/11 NXT
RU: no idea. Pick a Zayn or Owens promo.


Booker of the Year: Gabe Sapolsky (Evolve)
RU: Jado (NOAH)
(Honorable mention to the LU team, although I’d argue that their strength hasn’t so much been their booking as it has been their writing)

Worst Booker of the Year: Vince & Stephanie McMahon (WWE)
RU: John Gaburik (TNA)

Rookie of the Year: Chad Gable
RU: Cody Hall
(Honorable mention to Jay White)


Comeback of the year: Samoa Joe (leaving TNA will do that for you)
RU: Rhyno


Most Improved Wrestler of the Year: Baron Corbin
RU: Um… Alexa Bliss?

Best debut of the year: Kevin Owens in WWE
RU: Awesome Kong in TNA


Announcer of the Year: Lenny Leonard
RU: BJ Whitmer- ROH (yes, really)


Worst Announcer of the Year: Matt Striker- LU

(Honorable mention to Sami Zayn)

RU: Dissension in the Bullet Club during the AJ vs. Fale G1 match.

Worst Waste of Talent in a promotion: Cody Rhodes in WWE
RU: Kenny King in TNA
(At least I got to see Sasha be Sasha in NXT)

Most Shocking Moment of the Year: Holy f*ck they actually put Steen over Cena clean!
RU: Fenix gets powerbombed through the roof.

In-ring Spot of the Year: Angelico's Leap of Faith
RU: AJ Styles catches Kota Ibushi mid-phoenix Splash

Non-kayfabe News Story of the Year: Perro Aguayo Jr. dies after freak accident in the middle of the ring
RU: Destination America cancels TNA?!

What about that Eric Young shit, "not thinking about what I'm gonna do, thinking about what you're gonna do. " , "Hit me! Come on hit me! ""I'm not gonna hit you, I've already hit you." "You won't get inside my head! "I'm already inside your head."
When they come, they'll come at what you love.
