2013 for me. A lot of it was memorable for the right reasons. You had the rise of Bryan, the HHH/Orton turn, The Shield emerging, the Rhodes family storyline, Ziggler cash in, Mark Henry’s fake retirement speech, a really good SummerSlam with Punk/Lesnar and Bryan/Cena.

2011 a close second.

Re: Favourite year from this decade?

Either 2011 or 2016 for me personally.

2011 because:

-I loved CM Punk's run (some of the greatest promo work I have ever seen) and rivalry against Vince, Cena, and HHH.
-Orton was white hot at the time and had solid feuds against Christian, Wade Barrett, and Cody Rhodes.
-Mark Henry had one of the greatest heel turns in WWE history with his Hall of Pain gimmick.
-The Rock returned after a 7 year absence (nobody thought he would ever return at the time) and had a very entertaining feud with John Cena.
-Edge retiring was impactful.

2016 because:

-Smackdown was on absolute fire, it destroyed Raw each week to the point that they had to eventually 'dumb' the show down. I actually looked forward to Smackdown every week at the time.
-The Miz and Daniel Bryan's 'Talking Smack' segment.
-Shane returning to TV (it was awesome at the time)
-Amazing debuts of AJ Styles, Nakamura, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, and Bobby Roode.
-Goldberg's return.
-Goldberg destroyed an unstoppable Lesnar in 2 minutes clean.
-Kevin Owens gets handed his first main title.
-The women's "revolution".
-The List of Jericho.
-John Cena putting talent over.
-Sasha's rivalry with Charlotte.
-Daniel Bryan retiring was impactful.

Re: Favourite year from this decade?

My top three are 2013, 2016 and 2014.

2013 cos of The Shield, Punk and AJ Lee. 2016 cos it was Mox's best year in the company as a singles wrestler. And 2014 cos we had a nice mixture of face Shield and post Shield with the Mox vs Seth feud, plus one of the most shocking heel turns ever in Seth's turn. I loved being genuinely surprised like that.

Met Mox on March 28 2015/April 2 2016/August 20 2016/April 1 2017/April 7 2019!!
Met Roman on April 2 2016/April 7 2018!! Met Seth on March 31 2017/April 6 2019!!

Upcoming shows: WWE Melbourne, October 23 2019

The year of NXT where Asuka was the undefeated champion.

2011 or 2012, because of Punk. The last time they pushed real, genuine talent for any length of time.

2014 or 2016.

Im an Ambrose/Moxley fan.

"Meaningless, huh?! What do you know of meaningless?!

Spend most of your life ruled by another...watch your race dwindle to a handful...and then, tell me what has more meaning than your own strength.

I have in me the blood of a Saiyan Prince, he is nothing but a joke. Yet I've had to watch him surpass me in strength, my destiny, thrown to the wayside!

He's...he's even saved my life as if I were a helpless child. He has stolen my honor...and his debts...must be paid!"

Re: Favourite year from this decade?

It would have been this year had Lacey/Corbin won at ER. I guess 2010 because of The Miz's cash-in and Batista's heel run.

This decade of wrestling has sucked for the most part.

Re: Favourite year from this decade?

Albeit I was on hiatus during 2010-2012, second half of 2013-WM 30 for me. In the ring, we were treated to good/great, sometimes fantastic matches seemingly every week, spearheaded by Shield having their six-man formula down to a science and Daniel Bryan living up to his longheld world-class billing. Though now desecrated, it was the first time in years we had a vibrant, versatile tag division. Though not nearly as strong as previous years, there was far more gas in the storyline tank than there has been since, featuring Bryan vs. Authority (Trips putting in arguably his best work since Evolution dissolving), Henry's fake retirement, Punk vs. Heyman before Ryback got involved and the angle sank below Atlantis complete with homosexual overtones, Goldust's resurgence, the short but sweet Shield vs Wyatts feud, etc. Speaking of sweet, the crowds were typically energized, considering Bryan was the hottest face since Eddie Guerrero if not Rock/Austin and there were a plethora of popular acts supplementing him.

WM 30 was a thrilling roller coaster ride and set the company up for its best prospects in years. Unfortunately, a string of bad luck and bad booking undid all of the good will shortly thereafter. Overall though, a great catologue split between nice television matches and some superb ppv matches and though imperfect from a storyline perspective, some entertaining storylines easy to invest in.
