JBL makes up a lot of shit. he's definitely a funny color buy, but JR is still the GOAT. anytime he calls a major or semi-major match he adds to the importance. he also commentates regularly on NXT. voting is among subscribers, some of who are international and probably get NXT on their TV. others have watched NXT on their computers etc. absolutely no problem with this award.

wrestling observer didn't give them the award. the fans voted on the awards. the votes were split among 5 WWE programs. i seriously doubt TNA wins the award if shows like Slam, Main Event and NXT aren't an option. however they did make great improvements for a period this year so i don't have a huge problem with them winning the award.

the main reason this occurred is likely due to WWE voting getting split. a lot of the people that split their votes for WWE shows as best show probably voted TNA as worst promotion. also promotion isn't just the show itself. it can be a host of bad angles, bad ppvs, low buyrates, low attendances and other bad business decisions/metrics. TNA completely dropped like 8 PPVs this year and basically admitted they were failing in that sector of their business. it's completely warranted that you could vote TNA worst promotion and best show if you take into account those factors.

throw in never ending angles like the Claire Lynch angle and Ace's and Eights. paying money for a chick to be a hot referee and her debut flopping. Brooke Hogan segments in general. all completely justifiable reasons for voting it worst promotion even if you find the core matches/angles etc. entertaining.

regardless they likely only won the show b/c the vote split. obviously if we eliminated some options we wouldn't know if people may have changed their main event vote to raw or w.e, but given the results for worst promotion it seems unlikely an overwhelming majority would've voted impact. i do agree w/ whoever said that ROH probably should've won worst promotion though. likely didn't happen because less eyes are on the promotion.

the overwhelming majority probably don't watch NXT b/c it's not available in America on television and it's kind of a nothing show in the grand scheme of the promotion. some voted for it, maybe others would've voted for it if WWE didn't offer 4 other shows as well. NXT from what i've seen is good for what it is, but highly overrated just b/c it features different guys. personally i think Main Event is the best weekly television show, but i wouldn't have voted it as it wasn't around all year.

underpushed? so he should've ended Punk's screen run or beat more top guys? i'd say Ryback is overrated because at his talent level he shouldn't be in main events. sure he managed to get over by squashing people, but he's not THAT over. some crowds seem to react to him, while others don't. his promos are garbage as well. not worthy of being a top guy.

Very surprised and a little confused at how TNA managed to win "Best weekly show" and "worst promotion". Doesn't really add up.

JR is also on NXT regularly, while JBL constantly makes up "facts" regardless of how entertaining he is.

considering true fans are voting on the awards and are probably more well versed in pro graps than you are, they hold plenty of credibility.

Meltzer doesn't "make sure" of anything. his subscribers vote based upon their opinions. Meltzer said he DIDN'T even agree with Bryan winning the award.

i've only seen 3 NJPW shows from 2012, most of them were fantastic. the Tokyo Dome Show which had no impact on the voting was CLASSIC. it's ok that you haven't watched the product yourself, but you shouldn't post on subject matters you clearly aren't versed in.

idk about best wrestler in the world, but he definitely is worthy of the WOTY award given the criteria.

How in God's name is John Cena third most charismatic when half the fans hate his guts even though he's supposed to be the top babyface? And heck, if this week's Raw is any indicator, a lot of them don't even have the energy to react to him anymore.
you seem to be confusing charisma with overness. bad booking/writing/character has nothing to do with Cena's charisma.

Quote:
How is Cena Vs. Kane the worst feud? I mean yeah it was bad, but seriously? The worst?!?! Claire Lynch and that whole fiasco was not as bad as Cena/Kane, really?! AJ/Vickie is probably the only one I would accept being worse than Claire Lynch since it ripped off elements from that.
probably because the Cena/Kane matches/promos/angles were horrendous and the Lynch storyline had Daniels GOATing as well as decent-good matches between Styles/Daniels. not even sure if AJ/Vickie was eligible as i forget when that feud started. regardless, Cena/Dolph was also better than the Cena/Kane abomination.

Quote:
And I don't understand this about the Observer awards. What is the difference between Wrestler of the Year (Flair/Thesz award) and Most Outstanding Wrestler? Isn't that the same thing?
WOTY - Both performance in the ring as well as drawing power, marketability, value to the promotion and significance during the year among both shoot and worked matches should be considered.

Most Outstanding Wrestler is purely the best in-ring, bell-to-bell performer. Anything that takes place in a legitimate match situation should not be considered.
