Male Wrestlers Of The Year
And once again, the end of the year lists have reached their conclusion. Much like the women’s list, the top 10 men’s list was very hard to figure out. Not necessarily the wrestlers that would be on here, but the exact order for most of them. With so many fantastic years, there were so many options. That is the reason that the likes of Brian Cage, Tetsuya Naito, Tomasso Ciampa, and more ended up on the honorable mentions list. These 10 had just a little bit better of the year than the wrestlers on the honorable mentions. With five different promotions represented, there are a wide variety of wrestlers represented. There are dominant champions, surprise rises to the main event scene, and one match help turn someone’s year around to get him on this list.
Female Wrestlers Of The Year
This year was fantastic as a whole for women’s wrestling. We saw new names be made, great matches all around the world, and women main eventing shows. We saw the first ever women’s main event of Wrestlemania, as well as them headlining shows like Survivor Series and TLC. We saw dominant championship reigns happened, the re emergence of a wrestler that desperately needed, and the birth of a new star. This was a very hard top 10 to figure out with so many great performances, as there were so many great performances this year that were in the honorable mentions. These 10 had years that were just a tad bit better than the women mentioned on that list.
Matches Of The Year
2019 featured some great wrestling matches. Matches that would be remembered for a long time and even though there was a ton of great bouts this year, I've managed to come up with 10 best matches of the entire year! Trust me, this list wasn't easy at all. Took a lot of time to think about and now I finally get to share it with you guys. Here's the countdown of the Top 10 Pro Wrestling Matches of 2019!
Tag Teams Of The Year
While tag team wrestling as a whole was down this year, there was still teams that had fantastic years. We saw the birth of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship, a much better World Tag League from New Japan, and great tag team wrestling from the independent scene. We saw a lot of teams at the top of companies, and teams that were dominant all year. It was very hard to decide who would occupy this list. Teams like EVIL & SANADA, Street Profits, and Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross would just miss the list. A wide variety of teams and companies are represented here and while there are some obvious choices, there are also some surprises as well.
Best Moments Of The Year
We go from the worst moments of 2019 to the BEST moments of 2019! Every year, wrestling will always have its ups and downs so since we've already covered the downs, let's start covering the ups of the year. Here are the Top 10 Best Wrestling Moments of 2019!
Comeback Wrestlers Of The Year
I’ll be completely honest here, at first I didn’t really know what this list was going to be when I started it. If you pay attention to my Twitter, you will know that I am a fan of other sports outside of pro wrestling. A lot of those sports have an award for comeback athlete of the year, so I figured why not try and apply that to pro wrestling. Every year there are wrestlers that just don’t live up to their potential or they suffered an injury and had to miss a large portion of the year, or they have had a few down years, but they were able to turn it around this year. Even though 2018 was a good year for pro wrestling, there were plenty of wrestlers that had very down years. These wrestlers were able to bounce back from a bad 2018, and have a very good 2019.
Best PPV’s Of The Year
Pay Per Views always have fans talking as they revisit what went down on a big event. This year I must say wasn't the best when it comes to PPVs as there wasn't so many great ones that stand out, but I managed to find 10 shows that stood out in their own ways so today we'll look at the Top 10 Pay Per Views of 2019!
Disappointing Moments Of The Year
If you are reading this, then chances are that you are a fan of pro wrestling. I am someone that generally I try to be a positive person about the sport. But at times during the year, there are events and moments that you just have to shake your head at. We are in a time where fans can voice their opinions on social media about how good or bad the storylines are, how certain wrestlers are buried or not, and everything in between. These five stories were disappointments and are things that companies (Mostly WWE) need to focus on and improve on going into 2020.
Worst Moments Of The Year
Wrestling always have its ups and downs each and every year. We will indeed look back at the ups of the year but for now, we're going to start with the downs first. As 2019 is nearing the end, we're going to take a look at the top 10 WORST moments in pro wrestling this year.
Female Honorable Mentions
It’s no secret that I am a fan of women’s wrestling, and the fact that it is thriving in 2019 is a great thing to see. Women from all over the world are turning in phenomenal matches left, right, and center. It’s hard to think that just a handful of years ago that women’s matches were nothing more than bathroom breaks. Now they’ve got entire promotions built around women’s wrestling, like Shimmer, Stardom and Shine, to main eventing on the grandest stage of them all at Wrestlemania 35. With so many fantastic years from women’s wrestlers, and only 10 spots available, all the women on the following list just missed out on the top 10.
Breakout Stars Of The Year
2019 is almost over with and man, what a year for these superstars! To be honest, it was difficult creating this list because this year we've seen so many wrestlers break out to stardom and things are going to get more interesting for them going forward in 2020. After a long while of thinking, I've come up with the Top 10 Breakout Stars of this year as they made a big impact on the wrestling world. Let's take a look at the list!
Male Honorable Mentions
What a difference five months can make. Before the turn of the calendar to 2019, Bray Wyatt was damaged goods. Fans had lost all belief in him and couldn’t get invested in his matches. Due to personal life, the birth of his son, and an injury, Wyatt had been out of action since December 2019. After Wrestlemania 35, we started seeing vintages of the Firefly Funhouse and Bray Wyatt. Fans at first were confused and not interested in it, but then things started to change. Fans got invested in it and started to look forward to the segments every week. It was then that we started to see flashes of The Fiend, and fans were wondering when we would see it in the ring. The answer was Summerslam against Finn Balor, and the unthinkable happened, Wyatt won. He would then move into a feud with Universal Champion Seth Rollins, and while the Hell in a Cell match is something that we aren’t going to talk about, The Fiend won the Universal Championship from Rollins at Crown Jewel. Add in a win over Daniel Bryan at Survivor Series, and Wyatt has enjoyed a five month undefeated streak and his longest championship reign of his career. It’s amazing to see what a few months off and letting a wrestler create a new character can do to a wrestlers career. It will be interesting to see who is the person to finally beat the Fiend and end what seems to be an unstoppable monster.
