Wrestler of the year:
Gotta say Seth Rollins. It was his year as the face of the Authority. A great heel made his championship run memorable
Diva of the year:
Was going to say it was Nikki Bella however you can’t forget Bayley’s matches in NXT. Diva’s revolution’s not just in Raw.
Mix between Kevin Owens and Seth Rollins. Both were good at playing an arrogant and brash heels.
Has to be Kevin Owens. The indie star Steen finally arrives on Raw and defeats Cena on his debut.
Seth for sure. We only had 4 champions this year, being Lesnar, Rollins, Sheamus, and Reigns. Although they made Reigns’ win compelling, Rollins is the most memorable champion for 2015.
Best Tag Team:
NEW DAY ROCKS. The Lucha Dragons would of been chosen but they’ve gotten their push in the big leagues late in the year. New Day had always been a fun to watch especially their promos. A definition of a entertaining stable.
Undertaker vs Lesnar. The Beast vs The Deadman. The story between these two are definitely one to remember. Their overwhelming matches and the feelings we had as these two went at it are unquestioned.
Worst Tag Team:
The Ascension. Remember how dominant they were in NXT? Now they’re the Heath Slater x2. Also, Los Matadores. Sometimes it’s entertaining with El ‘Doritos’ but otherwise, it doesn’t look like they aren’t going anywhere.
Every PPV had good and bad matches but the most sour one was probably Royal Rumble of this year. We had enough of Reigns lookin’ so strong and even The Rock couldn’t even stop our Philly crowd from boo-ing.
Anything with Eva Marie, Adam Rose, and Slater
Gotta be Rusev and Barrett. It had a purpose for Rusev as he had an anti-American gimmick but didn’t really do much with it as he got buried by Super Cena. For Barrett, his IC title was pretty much pointless. Both are in the League of Nations now but everyone’s reaction to them is pretty much…’meh’.
There were a lot of pointless feuds but these went nowhere.
Macho Mandow and Axelmania. Was okay when it debuted but got no where. Thanks, Hogan.
Worst of all:
Lastly, the worst of all is something that isn’t scripted. The deaths of the two legends that left us this year. The American Dream Dusty Rhodes and ‘Rowdy’ Roddy Piper. They’ve built their legacy in the WWE and won’t be forgotten. They were both loved by the fans and were some of the greatest workers on the mic and the best promo makers. It sucks to see how they’re misusing Dusty’s sons Goldust and most important Stardust. It was too soon for Roddy Piper. A great heel in WWE’s history. Also even more sad to me was that he died on my birthday. Rest in peace.
