Seeing as how it is
- a.) Approaching the end of the year and
- b.) I am now in possession of a floor seat ticket to the 2011 Slammy awards in Norfolk, Virginia.
Then I think it is time for myself and my fellow citizens of The Wrestling Ring forums to come together and come up with a good ole' fashion end of the year list. This is the year that I, and many of the people here decided to come back to the wonderful world of Professional Wrestling. Like most years, there has been quite a few high points that stick out as something worthy of being remembered and cherished forever. Also like most years, there has been a countless number of lows, so we will include those in our little end of the year celebration.
I'm starting off (and naming the thread) with the 2011 Match of the Year. Since I feel this is the most important award, I want a group of five matches from fifth to first. So no, I don't want everybody to just say CM Punk vs. John Cena and consider it over. So feel free and nominate whichever match you feel strongly about and write up a little summary of why it is the best match of the year. It can come from ANY promotion, even New Japan Pro Wrestling if you're that crazy, and the match must be easily obtainable online so the rest of us can watch whatever you're talking about. Since I'm opening up this discussion on December 1st, I'm allowing matches from December 2010 to be on the list.
Now to talk about other categories. Should we split up Wrestler of the year into best wrestler in different promotions? or have it Overall Wrestler of the Year? Should we have Worst Match/Wrestler of the Year? Best promo of the Year? Best new wrestler? Best Gimmick? Worst Gimmick? Best DVD? Best PPV? etc.
