Everyone remember that after the 1) for Feud of the Year it's spelt 'Aleister' when you're putting in Black/Dream

That’s a funny way to spell ‘Kazuchika’

I call the darkness unto me from deepest depths of Earth and sea. From ancient evils unawoken, break the one that can't be broken. To blackest night, I pledge my soul and crush my heart to burning coal. To summon forth a deathly power, to see my hated foe devoured.


I won’t update it again I just misspelled the acronym of a promotion and also forgot about a feud.

Someone please give me a 10- to 20-word summary of the "5 Star Wrestling fiasco." Also, if you are the person who voted for that for shittiest thing a promotion did, please know that I am very very minorly annoyed with you.

This was a huge year for disgusting promotional tactics. One of the all time greats.

My vote goes to 5 Star Wrestling for announcing multiple shows they sold tickets for, and then cancelled and wouldn't offer refunds on "delayed indefinitely" before finally admitting the shows were cancelled when they could use a terrorist bombing as an excuse

Sorry about that. I thought there'd be enough other people voting for it that "5 Star Wrestling fiasco" would be a quick enough summary.

Looking through the history I'm impressed with how much Miz has won the awards in both positive and negative categories. I think he's stepped up his game enough to be part of an interesting high-profile storyline and ends up with a solid case for best feud or most outstanding wrestler, while someone who's consistently putting out 4-5 star classics like Omega, Okada or Styles gets the straight up best wrestler award.

As weird as it is to think of, based on some of the crowd response lately Miz seems like he could benefit from a face run, it'd be interesting to see him winning matches on his own and fighting with a chip on his shoulder against guys who have been handed opportunities in his view like Reigns, Rollins, and Cena. Heck since Cena's basically putting over everybody lately I'm sure Miz could benefit from beating him clean.

I can't think of any argument for the Miz as Most Outstanding. He was never at the top of the card this year, his feuds were mostly rehashes from last year and not as good and his matches were nothing special. He didn't draw, he didn't wrestle well, all he did was talk well. You could make a case for Best on Interviews, but most Outstanding? Even if you project his skillset going forward it seems unlikely at best. His ceiling is feuds like the one against The Shield where he's a player in placeholder feuds on top. Especially since he's not young anymore.

Also Miz's best stuff was on a show nobody watched on a subscription service.

Miz's feud with Ambrose was hot garbage and he doesn't actually put over people as much as you think. He's insanely overrated on this forum.

ZSJ should win for best technical as 2017 was his best year ever BUT i want it to be KUSHIDA or Scurll anyway as he's already got it twice and they should get their dues.

Rev pro had an awesome ZSJ vs Kushida match at the start of the year that I really liked and showed both guys technical skill but it got lost due to all the other great matchs of 2017

Goog I didn't watch much wrestling this year so I'm going to pad my ballot with the retro stuff I watched. You are free, as an American, to disregard.

Also, I will note for the thread that the Wrestlehut Pisscast did release an episode in 2017 so we are totes eligible.
