Its a mixed bag for me with the awards. For one, it felt like he was giving in to what peers are saying rather than looking at the products and promotions objectively. Moxley and Bayley were good choices for winners here.

Also Bray Wyatt as The Fiend was an awesome gimmick. They just gave him bad bookings last year and prematurely ended his undefeated streak for a quick buck. Alexa Bliss taking over the role to torment Randy Orton also proves a point that Wawae could go all over the place with The Fiend character.

I also agree with Ricochet being an underrated talent. I already forgot anything memorable he did last year because creatives weren’t utilizing him that much.

Also why is there no NJPW mentioned here?

Anyway I’d love to hear your thoughts on thia. Leave a comment below and follow me on Twitter at @thefanboyseo!
