Although I'm a little bit late, the fifth (mostly) annual wrestling awards are here again! In a nod to the fact that just about everybody here still doesn't watch (or only half pays attention to) TNA/Impact Wrestling, these awards will be continue to look at only the WWE (TNA can be added if there's enough support, but I don't think that's going to be the case).

I've compiled nominees for each category, but you are more than welcome to give your input on 'em. If you think the lists need work, let me know.

That match was slow in the middle, but worthy of being on the nominations list. Will it win? Not a chance, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be recognized.

I'll probably finalize nominations by Raw on Monday night, so if anybody has any input they should make sure to get it in by then. The newcomer crop is a bit weak for the year, particularly since guys like Ryback and Sandow aren't on it due to previous WWE runs under other gimmicks.

I know she doesn't wrestle, but Vickie Guerrero for Diva of the Year? Or, maybe Heel? I mean, 'EXCUSE ME!!!!' gets an immediate heel response from the crowd.

Miz for Heel?

Maybe put Natalya up there for Divas. I know she hasn't done shit in a while, but I've always thought she was decent. They're really wasting her.

She's actually a great wrestler, but yeah they are definitely wasting her.

I've been in and out of watching wrestling this year, but I'd like to nominate the fatal four-way for the World title at Over the Limit. Orton vs. Jericho vs. ADR vs. Sheamus. It was damn entertaining and kind of overlooked. Featured four of the best workers in the company.

Also, if we're putting up a Jericho/Punk match, I'd nominate their Extreme Rules Chicago Street Fight ahead of the WrestleMania match. I was kind of underwhelmed by the latter.

Good call. That was the match of the year in my opinion.

Re: BBF.com 2012 Wrestling Awards (Discussion Thread; Voting Details in Post #8)

Sent out a PM to folks who've been active here, might ease voting a bit. You can go ahead and rank using 1 for best and x for worst in the PM if you want, I know that's easier to do. I'll convert the numbers to high to low later on my own.

I should be able to tell what you mean (ie. 1 meaning best or worst), but you can always specify to be safe.

I'll be posting one result a day from here on out, plus the vote totals.


Diva of the Year vote was close (and justifiably so, I think), we almost ended up with an AJ/Eve tie:

AJ Lee - 31
Eve Torres - 29
Layla - 21
Beth Phoenix - 20
Natalya - 13
Vickie Guerrero - 12

Roman Reigns - 15
Camacho - 6
