  9. Match of the year: John Cena vs CM Punk on Raw back in March.

    Promo/segment of the year: Mark Henry's "retirement" on Raw a few weeks back.

    Superstar of the year: John Cena, kayfabe wise. Won the Rumble, finally beat Punk (though he had before and WWE either forgot about it or ignored it), defeated The Rock for the WWE Title, nearly gave The Shield their first defeat in a six man elimination match, defeated Ryback (though only a few haven't at this point), etc. On a personal level, probably Daniel Bryan. He's still over and has scored clean pin fall victories over Orton and Sheamus and gave The Shield their first defeat in six man tag matches and will probably win MITB this Sunday and proceed even further into his push.

    Diva of the year: AJ.

    Manager/valet of the year: Paul Heyman.

    Arena/Crowd of the year: The Wrestlemania and post-Mania crowd by default since it's always a hot crowd both nights now (they're even thinking about holding the post-Mania Raw in a stadium next year.)

    Pay-per-view of the year: Probably Payback, though I don't feel it was quite as great as others made it out to be.

    Rivalry of the year: Ryback and good booking.

    Something you've really liked: Henry's fake retirement from a few weeks back, The Shield's reign of dominance, the CM Punk/Brock Lesnar silent confrontation that ended with Punk being F-5ed, Ziggler cashing in, Undertaker working a couple of matches post-Mania to help put over The Shield, Daniel Bryan dropping the comedy shit and having serious matches with The Shield/Randy Orton/Sheamus, Ziggler and Del Rio's match at Payback and the double turn that resulted from it, etc.

    Something you've really disliked: Idiots chanting Husky Harris during Wyatt's debut, Ziggler jobbing constantly, Triple H defeating Lesnar at Wrestlemania (or even wrestling Lesnar again), Ryback turning heel (though I tried to be optimistic about it), Curtis Axel being Paul Heyman's third client (it's still early, but I'm starting to think this was a mistake after all), taking the laziest approach possible in building up Punk/Undertaker for WM29 when there was an already obvious backdrop to the match that was more interesting, Jack Swagger getting a world title push and being given the WHC match for Wrestlemania over Mark Henry, etc.

    Debut of the year: Bray Wyatt.

    Move of the year: CM Punk pulling out the pile driver to try to put away John Cena back on Raw during the build to WM.

    Show of the year: Raw. I don't even regularly watch the others. I even forget Smackdown is on most Fridays.

    Return Of The Year: The Rock.

    Return of the year: The Godfather
     
  11. Match of the year: Toss up between Cena/Punk from Raw during the build to Mania or Dolph vs. Del Rio at Payback. Probably the former since I can't think of any legitimately problems I had with it while I really did have a problem with Del Rio going for the Cross-ARMBAR during the latter match. It's not a big deal in the grand scheme of things but it's enough for me to say, "probably Cena/Punk."

    Promo/segment of the year: Hm, probably Henry's Retrollement Speech. Though shout-out to the John Cena Problem promo by The Shield, really loved that one. Or perhaps one of the Punk/Rock promos, the first one I think (the one that started off with CM Punk gave Tyson Kidd praise). Considering Henry's is fresher, that one sticks out more now but I'm not certain it'll stay. Either way, it's my pick now.

    Superstar of the year: I'll go with CM Punk for the moment, though Daniel Bryan and Dolph Ziggler could certainly top him giving a few more weeks even.

    Diva of the year: Eve Torres and yes, I'm aware she's only had like a solitary week this year but god dammit if that week wasn't all she needed to get my vote. Way back when I first joined up my posts could be split up into three separate categories; a long winded rant about WWE's booking, what's wrong with it and what I'd do differently; miscellaneous; and my love of Eve Torres. The last one doesn't get brought up anymore for obvious reasons but hasn't really faltered all that much since her dismissal and since I'm answering this completely subjectively, as too many of these questions are rooted in subjectivity to attempt to do this objectively, of course that's going to influence my answer. With all that said, it's not completely based off that, her final match against Kaitlyn was my favorite part of the Raw Twentieth Anniversary show by far and one of my favorite matches of the entire year and that's almost entirely because of Eve. From her moveset to her selling, everything was awesome and I even had a little moment of excitement when I thought she was going to win and not retire after all, of course reality set in even before Kaitlyn kicked out but still.

    As for the other contenders, which are just AJ & Kaitlyn . . . yeah not a fan of either at all. I'm [surprisingly] in the minority that thought their match at Payback was an utter bore coupled with a really retarded finish (not the belt thing, Kaitlyn not pinning AJ) and that isn't an isolated incident. Kaitlyn is by far one of the most boring and forgettable diva's I've seen in the ring and strangely enough that's a compliment since a lot of them just flat out suck but still not Diva of the year. As for AJ, the only chance she has winning anything from me is if one of the categories was Most Annoying Wrestler of the year, something in that vein.

    Manager/valet of the year: That's easy, Paul Heyman.

    Arena of the year: Wrestlemania.

    Crowd of the year: Since it's going to win anyway, the crowd that everyone loves because the hummed Fandingoatemybabio's theme song and apparently that's so awesome. Okay, I laid that sarcasm on pretty thick. Before I'm vilified, let me clarify, I liked that crowd because they were clearly passionate and having fun but their antics were just meh to me. Personally I'm cool with any crowd that doesn't indulge in the retardedness that is, "What?" chants or attempt something stupid like the recent Husky Harris chants.

    Pay-per-view of the year: Payback, by approximately .3 points.

    Rivalry of the year: I'd love to steal Lockard's but it's too much of a curbstomp so I'll just say Del Rio/Dolph.

    Something you've really liked: Look at most of the other categories above, it'll reveal some things I really liked this year. I suppose I'll say something I haven't previously and that would be The Shield's dominance.

    Something you've really disliked: As I noted in the Diva one, AJ in general. Also, Brock Lesnar vs. Triple H at WrestleMania was putrid.

    Debut of the year: Wyatt Family by default pretty much, even though I thought their debut was rather underwhelming. I mean, the only other debut I can think of is Fandingoatemybabio and that was just awful.

    Attire of the year: The Shield!

    Commentator of the year: JBL, rather easily too.

    Pre-show/kickoff of the year: I haven't seen a single one of these but I will probably catch the Money In The Bank one (it's The Shield's match right? [I actually hope I'm wrong here because that doesn't sit right with me]) so I suppose that one.

    Move of the year: You talking about an exact instance or just overall? If it's the latter, Roman Reigns Spear, if it's the former, pick any Roman Reigns Spear.

    Show of the year (RAW/SmackDown/ NXT/ Main Event/ Superstars/ Saturday Morning Slam): Raw is the only one I've seen so, it by default (even though I'm sure NXT is better).

    RAW of the year: I don't know. I only watched like three live otherwise I just pick and choose what segments interested me. Hardly a fair basis to decide which is the best one. I suppose I'll go with whichever one had Punk vs. Cena (which was the only thing I saw from that Raw).

    SmackDown of the year: One recently had Dolph Ziggler give an in-ring promo that was pretty good. Rain made a thread about it, if I'm not mistaken. That one on account of it being the only thing from Smackdown I think I've seen all year.

    Return of the year: Jericho at the Rumble, easily.
     
  12. Match of the year: Cena/Punk on RAW
    Promo/segment of the year: Henry's Speech
    Superstar of the year: DB
    Diva of the year: AJ
    Manager/valet of the year: Heyman
    Arena of the year: NJ post WM
    Crowd of the year: NJ post WM
    Pay-per-view of the year: Royal Rumble (I'm a huge Rumble mark)
    Rivalry of the year: DB/Orton
    Something you've really liked (This can be anything. A superstar, a storyline, a crowd, a promo, anything) Post WM RAW
    Something you've really disliked (Again, this can be anything): Miz
    Debut of the year: Curtis Axel
    Attire of the year: Anything worn by Layla
    Commentator of the year: JBL
    Pre-show/kickoff of the year: No idea
    Move of the year: Axel's Perfectplex
    Show of the year (RAW/SmackDown/ NXT/ Main Event/ Superstars/ Saturday Morning Slam):
    RAW of the year: Post WM
    SmackDown of the year: Post WM
    Return of the year: Goldust (marked my tits off during the Rumble)
     
  13. Match of the year: The Shield's match against Cena/Sheamus/Ryback at Elimination Chamber. Even though there were matches that told better stories, you know what those are. Really enjoyed the utter chaos in this match, and after a year of bitching about superbooking it was so cathartic to see these guys job to really good talent.
    Promo/segment of the year: Mark Henry's "retirement" speech. We'll be talking about that one for years, unlike any other promo this year.
    Superstar of the year: It's Daniel Bryan and not even close. He's the first babyface that the crowd is 100% behind since Punk in 2011, so of course he'll be turning heel soon ;_;
    Diva of the year: Summer Rae. Have been loving her heel work in NXT, although it's really hard to not go Emma here. There was a week where Kaitlyn and AJ was a good feud, but other than that the Divas have had such terrible chauvinistic writing that it's unintentionally making Emma awesome.
    Manager/valet of the year: Heyman. He's being used to progress storylines and not just yell stuff for no reason, so he's being productive. Most of them don't get heat on the guy they're managing, but just associating himself with Heyman has done wonders for Curtis Axel
    Arena of the year: idc
    Crowd of the year: Was definitely the Raw after Mania. Best crowd ever, not just tonight. They need a Hall of Fame spot.
    Pay-per-view of the year: It was definitely Payback. Best PPV since MITB 2011. Almost every match was good to great, the booking was both memorable and specacular... Yeah. No complaints
    Rivalry of the year: Lol'ed at Lockard's answer, but have to go Cena and Henry. Henry's so damn good in this role that it's sad to know he's probably another guy in Cena's path. Please give him the belt, WWE.
    Something you've really liked: I love the new, fresh booking we're getting nowadays. It's not perfect, but the show feels refreshed and nowhere near as stale. And just in a few months it seems like they've went from little ME caliber talent to having too much to feature effectively. That's a good problem to have. All the right people are being pushed the right way.
    Something you've really disliked: WWE still thinking 3 hour Raw is a good idea. At least 4 members of this forum agreed Raw was really good this week but still had trouble staying awake since it was just too damn long. Also the Ryback heel turn.
    Debut of the year: Follow the buzzards...
    Attire of the year: Summer Rae wearing the skimpiest Divas' attire we've seen in a while, good grief. Does that even count as attire? Not complaining though. :)
    Commentator of the year: JBL. He's so entertaining, and doing his best to carry the commentary on his back right now. Wish they had a two-man announce team so he can speak up more.
    Pre-show/kickoff of the year: Sheamus vs Sandow, because watching Sheamus get kicked off the card was fucking glorious. Yay smiley. No surprise, the best PPV in 2 years was the one without Sheamus on it.
    Move of the year: Does "the Yes Lock with the kendo stick" count? Since that's the one that comes to mind.
    Show of the year: NXT. It's had like 2 bad episodes all year, you always feel good by the end of it. Aww yeah.
    RAW of the year: Raw after Mania. You might say "oh, it was only because of the crowd", but it made the show so damn entertaining. That's part of it.
    SmackDown of the year: The one where Daniel Bryan snapped and destroyed the Shield all by his lonesome.
    Return of the year: Jericho at the Rumble, we all orgasmed over that one.
