    The 2018 One Nation Radio Awards Gauntlet (WWE/NXT Awards Voting)

    I take awards season in Wrestling deadly serious. I primarily cover WWE and NXT while I treat New Japan as a second full course meal and follow just about every high-end match and feud they have. I’ve gone through since the start of 2018 in WWE, and with my co-host James Boyd kept track of front-runners for each award.

    We’ve got comedy awards, serious awards, and agonizing decisions for you to make. We constantly cut and added nominees as needed, and hope you will join us in determining the best of 2018. It’s been an extremely difficult year on the main roster, thus i’ve opened the floodgates to NXT participation in most awards.

    Ric Flair Wrestler Of The Year - (PPV Wrestling, Talking, Moving The Culture, Overall #1 Performer)

    Becky Lynch
    Ronda Rousey
    AJ Styles
    Seth Rollins
    Johnny Gargano
    Daniel Bryan
    Tommaso Ciampa

    A category full of quality candidates make up a deep field. You can almost split them into groups and then go from there. (Becky, Ronda & Charlotte) (Bryan, Styles, Rollins) (Gargano, Ciampa)

    Shawn Michaels In Ring Performer Of The Year - (Best In Ring Performer)

    Pete Dunne
    Johnny Gargano
    AJ Styles
    Daniel Bryan
    Seth Rollins
    Mustafa Ali

    A literal murderer’s row of wrestlers that either excelled on TV, PPV, or both.

    Top New Japan Wrestler

    Tetsuya Naito
    Kenny Omega
    Kota Ibushi
    Kazuchika Okada
    Hiroshi Tanahashi
    Will Osperay
    Tomohiro Ishii

    A Double murderer’s row of candidates. Outstanding arguments can be made for nearly every wrestler here. These awards would not be complete without looking toward New Japan’s top talent.

    Ronda Rousey
    Andrade Cien Almas
    Drew McIntyre

    Dusty Rhodes Promo Cutter Of The Year

    Daniel Bryan
    Becky Lynch
    The Miz
    Tommaso Ciampa
    Samoa Joe

    These 5 were on another level for a longer period of time than anyone else. From Bryan’s excellent return, then dramatic switch, to Lynch’s culture shifting promos that changed her career trajectory, The Miz’s high level consistency, Ciampa’s mental mindgames, and Samoa Joe’s creativity, intensity, and old school wreckless ness. The choice is yours.

    Ms. Elizabeth Woman Of The Year (Celebrating the top female performer in WWE)

    Shayna Baszler
    Ronda Rousey
    Becky Lynch

    Mustache Mountain vs Undisputed Era
    AJ Styles vs Daniel Bryan
    Mustafa Ali vs Buddy Murphy
    Kairi Sane vs Shayna Baszler

    In ring excellence, Tag Team Brilliance, and tales of hate and betrayal all make up a category that is tougher than leather.

    Macho Man Randy Savage Best Dressed/Ring Gear Award

    Sasha Banks
    The New Day
    Daniel Bryan
    Johnny Gargano
    Velveteen Dream
    Alicia Fox
    Mustafa Ali
    Tony Nese

    Who’s the flyest? The most original? I’ve always liked to see who looked the best while kicking ass. These are the nominees.

    Put Em In A Coffin Award

    Baron Corbin
    Mojo Rawley
    Bobby Roode
    The IIconics
    The Undertaker
    Bray Wyatt

    Johnny Gargano
    Tommaso Ciampa
    Undisputed Era
    Velveteen Dream

    Interesting way of presenting things Rich, I like how you name them, it gives them a special feeling.

    I am interested why you didn't include Dean in the best talker category? I found The Chronicle amazing and it was 40+ minutes straight driven almost purely by his performance.
