The 2017 Enuffa.com Pro Wrestling Year-End Awards

Welcome to Enuffa.com's 4th Annual Year-End Awards! 


Man, what a strange year.  One major company soared to new creative and nearly unprecedented commercial heights (at least for the past twenty years), while the other engaged in one baffling, counterproductive decision after another, wasting arguably the strongest talent roster they've ever boasted.  Said company's developmental brand, seemingly on the verge of equaling its main roster a year ago, took a step back in 2017 after losing so many of its stars and being forced to rebuild.

Remember a couple years ago when we were worried about New Japan after they lost several top guys?  Yeah, that's all out the window.  New Japan Pro Wrestling delivered on every front in 2017, offering some of the most incredible matches anyone's ever seen, elevating multiple new stars and building one of the deepest rosters in years, and enjoying some of the biggest financial gains since the Great Muta era.  Not only that but NJPW's fanbase in North America is the largest it's ever been (the company promoted NJPW-only shows on American soil for the first time) and 2018 promises even more significant growth in that area.  Shows like WrestleKingdom 11 and Dominion were shining examples of what a stacked wrestling PPV should be, while the G1 Climax tournament delivered easily a dozen Match of the Year candidates.  November saw the company deliver a bombshell revelation, with the announcement that 18-year WWE stalwart Chris Jericho was jumping ship to New Japan, marking one of the most US-impactful NJPW-related stories in history.  With the card set for WrestleKingdom 12, including one of the company's all-time biggest main events, we could see the largest Tokyo Dome crowd since the company's heyday.  It's a very exciting time to be a New Japan fan.

On the other side of the Pacific, WWE took an incredibly stacked roster and used it in some of the most logic-defying ways imaginable.  At least once a month the company presented a head-scratching booking decision that cumulatively wore down fan enthusiasm, until by year's end the brand seemed about as uncool as 1999 WCW.  Let's take a look at some of WWE's more bumbling creative moves of the year, shall we?  I bet I can name at least one per month.




January - WWE books the fairly irrelevant Randy Orton to win the Royal Rumble, much to the excitement of no one.  Orton would go on to be involved in two of the year's worst feuds and deliver arguably the worst in-ring year of his career, despite being in the WWE Title picture for most of that time.

February - WWE books Universal Champion and top RAW heel Kevin Owens to lose to the 49-year-old Bill Goldberg (whose only match since 2004 had been the 90-second squash of Brock Lesnar three months earlier), in TWENTY-ONE SECONDS.  Goldberg would only wrestle one more match before leaving WWE again, losing to Brock in under five minutes at WrestleMania, for a total of seven minutes of in-ring time his entire run.

March - WWE books non-wrestler Shane McMahon as AJ Styles' WrestleMania 33 opponent when their first choice, Shawn Michaels, declines the spot.  Because what better substitute for one of the greatest in-ring performers of all time than a 47-year-old businessman?  Amazingly the match went on to steal the show, a testament to AJ's incredible talent.  Imagine how good a match AJ could've had with Shawn.  Or with just about any other actual WRESTLER.

April - WWE presents a SEVEN-HOUR WrestleMania show (including a two-hour pre-show wherein bottom-card act Mojo Rawley wins the Andre the Giant Battle Royal over top workers like Sami Zayn and Dolph Ziggler, former Andre-winner The Big Show, and white-hot monster heel Braun Strowman) and a five-hour main card (including an embarrassingly weak Bray Wyatt-Randy Orton WWE Title match wherein maggots and worms are projected onto the canvas) and headlined by The Undertaker losing to Roman Reigns and retiring (thus solidifying Reigns as the most hated man in the company, whom they still refuse to turn heel).  Four weeks later Orton and Wyatt blow off their feud in one of the worst "matches" of all time, a House of Horrors bout that is shot like a C-level horror film and contains brain-breaking logic holes.

May - WWE hotshots long-time jobber-to-the-stars Jinder Mahal as the new #1 Contender out of nowhere and books him to defeat Randy Orton for the WWE Title, all in an attempt to cash in on WWE's popularity in India.  Mahal would hold the Title for six months but fail to move the needle at all with Indian audiences, and somehow managed to never have a match above "mediocre."  Ya know what, I was wrong - Jinder was a way worse opponent for AJ Styles than Shane McMahon was.

June - Smackdown presents their Money in the Bank PPV, which includes the first-ever Women's MITB match, which ends after a paltry 13 minutes when the match's least deserving participant Carmella's love interest James Ellsworth climbs the ladder and grabs the briefcase for her.  As of now Carmella has still not cashed in.  Not to be outdone, the men's MITB briefcase also goes to the least deserving competitor, Baron Corbin, who would unsuccessfully cash in a few weeks later and become only the third man to lose his cash-in match.

July - WWE announces a first-time-ever match between Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe on a new PPV called Great Balls of Fire(??!?).  The hype has a distinctly MMA-inspired build, portending a true battle of the bulls.  The match itself lasts only six minutes.  On the same show WWE books Roman Reigns to attempt vehicular homicide on Braun Strowman, who somehow sustains no major injuries.  Roman Reigns is STILL not turned heel.  Later that month WWE resurrects the much-beloved-by-no-one Punjabi Prison match, in which Jinder Mahal defeats Randy Orton with an assist from the much-beloved-by-no-one Great Khali.  Also that month, WWE split accomplished Smackdown tag team American Alpha so Jason Jordan could be moved to RAW as Kurt Angle's onscreen illegitimate son.  The storyline immediately fell flat with audiences and Jordan's career has been in a tailspin ever since.

August - WWE sacrificed the unique and very much over Shinsuke Nakamura to the ongoing Jinder Mahal experiment, booking Jinder to defeat Nakamura in the exact same fashion he beat Randy Orton twice.  Mahal botched his finisher in the process.

September - After splitting the fairly well-liked duo of Enzo & Cass so the 6'8" Cass could be pushed as a monster heel (which got derailed when Cass suffered a knee injury), the generally inept Enzo was booked to defeat longtime Cruiserweight Champion Neville and become an "anti-cruiserweight" heel, thus robbing the division of its main appeal (strong, fast-paced in-ring action).

October - WWE books a feud between Kevin Owens and Shane McMahon.  In one of the segments building up the eventual match (which ran a mentally taxing 39 minutes), Vince McMahon allows himself to take a legit headbutt from Kevin Owens and be cut hardway.  This is in spite of ten years of dealing delicately with the subject of concussions (the reason WWE STILL won't clear Daniel Bryan to wrestle).  Later that month in a TLC handicap match, Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Kurt Angle (subbing for a sick Roman Reigns) defeat The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman, and Kane, after Kane and the rest of his team throw Strowman into a garbage truck and compact him.  Strowman returns two weeks later unscathed, despite being MURDERED by trash compactor.  On the same show, Finn Balor defeats AJ Styles in a thrilling first-time-ever match, but loses cleanly in a squash to Kane the next night on RAW.  AJ Styles however goes on to regain the WWE Title from Jinder Mahal a few weeks later.

November - The Survivor Series main event pitting Kurt Angle, Triple H, Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe and Finn Balor against Shane McMahon, Randy Orton, John Cena, Shinsuke Nakamura and Bobby Roode boils down to Angle/Triple H/Strowman vs. Shane/Orton after Nak, Roode, Balor, Cena and Joe are the first five men eliminated.  The finish of the match is all about Triple H as he screws over Angle before pinning Shane to win the match for his team.  Part-timers rejoice!

December - WWE announces that the 50-year-old Kane, who hasn't been relevant since Team Hell No, will challenge Brock Lesnar (with Braun Strowman) in a triple threat match at the 2018 Royal Rumble.  This is the match WWE opts for instead of Lesnar vs. Finn Balor, because Vince McMahon doesn't think Balor is over enough.


I got 'em all!  WWE made at least one bonehead move a month in 2017, and it made for an infuriating product that continues to turn people off.  Here's hoping they can get their shit together in 2018.


Anyway, enough complaining - let's hand out some awards!  



Promotion of the Year

This one's not even close.  There's one wrestling company that fired on nearly all cylinders in 2017, putting to rest the fears that its 2012-2015 renaissance would never be equaled.  By creating new stars and continuing to present relatable stories primarily told between the ropes, this company reached new creative peaks and grew its North American audience by leaps and bounds in 2017.  For the fifth consecutive year my pick for Promotion of the Year is....

The winner is: New Japan Pro Wrestling






Major Show of the Year

Another continuing trend is my pick for PPV of the Year.  For three years running, New Japan has kicked off the calendar year with an absolute blowaway event that would prove impossible to top.  2017's Tokyo Dome spectacular was a stacked card that culminated in a quadrilogy of instant classics, from the breathtaking Kushida-Takahashi Jr. Heavyweight Title sprint to the blistering Shibata-Goto NEVER Openweight fight, to the dramatic Tanahashi-Naito Intercontinental pro wrestling classic, to the transcendent Okada-Omega opus that set off an enormous industry buzz.  WrestleKingdom 11 captured everything that makes New Japan great, and set the tone for one of the company's most successful calendar years.

The award goes to: NJPW WrestleKingdom 11





Most Disappointing Show

WWE followed up a rather surprisingly good WrestleMania with a very flat Payback PPV.  This show had multiple potentially great matches but none of them exceeded three stars, and one inclusion on the card was straight-up embarrassing.  We got a Kevin Owens-Chris Jericho rematch that failed to live up to its predecessor and ended with Jericho inexplicably winning back the US Title only to lose it back to Owens two days later.  We also got a first-time WWE match in Seth Rollins vs. Samoa Joe, but despite being the Match of the Night it didn't quite capture the imagination.  In the main event we got a Roman Reigns-Braun Strowman rematch that played out more like a squash angle, since Reigns was selling a rib injury.  After only twelve minutes Strowman rather handily defeated Reigns in a one-sided affair.  But all this was overshadowed by one of the worst wrestling matches I've ever seen, the House of Horrors blowoff between Randy Orton and Bray Wyatt.  The concept was itself a blatant ripoff of something Matt & Jeff Hardy did better in TNA, a fight inside a horror movie-type house, but the action here was boring and nonsensical, as Wyatt tipped a refrigerator over onto Orton and escaped the house, stealing the limousine Orton arrived in and going back to the arena.  But somehow Orton managed to arrive there at the same time despite being trapped under a heavy kitchen appliance and having no car.  Wyatt won the match in the ring after interference from Jinder Mahal, concluding an indelible blemish on both Wyatt's and Orton's resumes.  This show stunk.

The winner is: WWE Payback 2017





Feud of the Year

There are rivalries that transcend the pro wrestling genre, where two competitors manage to generate unforgettable magic every time they share a ring.  Flair-Steamboat.  Rock-Austin.  Angle-Benoit.  Danielson-McGuinness.  This year's best feud belongs in that same category.  These two men clashed three times in 2017, delivering an epic, star meter-breaking trilogy that is already remembered as one of the finest series of wrestling matches in the annals of the business.  And we probably haven't even seen the end of this feud yet.  From the 47-minute, three-act masterpiece on January 4th to the 60-minute Godfather II of wrestling match sequels on June 11th, to the blazing 25-minute war of attrition to close out the "regular season" of the G1 Climax, Okada and Omega showed everyone else in the business how it's done.

The Feud of the Year is: Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega





Match of the Year

Speaking of Okada-Omega, that brings us to our Match of the Year winner.  I think I may be in the minority here, as most seemed to prefer the unforgettable 60-minute draw these two delivered at Dominion, but my personal favorite of this incredible trilogy was the inaugural installment.  The first third of this match centered around ground grappling and technical wizardry.  The second act was where both men pulled out all the stops, seemingly trying to kill each other with high spots.  The third involved dramatic storytelling of the highest order as the two warriors tried to finish each other off.  I can't recall any other wrestling match with such a unique three-act structure; it was like three matches in one.  This is one of the greatest matches I've ever seen.

The award goes to: Kazuchika Okada vs. Kenny Omega at WrestleKingdom 11





Woman of the Year

Kazuchika Okada broke the record for the longest IWGP Title reign, but his countrywoman across the ocean was smashing records of her own, holding the NXT Women's Championship a staggering 510 days and becoming the longest-reigning champion of the modern WWE era (eclipsing CM Punk's 434 days as WWE Champ).  Not only that, Asuka is now enjoying the longest undefeated streak in wrestling history and is a favorite to win the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble (This is the only course of action that makes sense).  She is arguably the most dominant women's wrestler in WWE history, and her main roster career is just getting started.

The award goes to: Asuka





Tag Team of the Year

2017 was the year it made more financial sense for numerous top wrestlers NOT to sign with WWE.  Where the North American wrestling juggernaut once had the muscle and the cash to sign literally anyone they wanted, certain wrestlers are now finding a much more lucrative path on the outside.  One such example is our 2017 Tag Team winner, The Young Bucks.  Matt and Nick Jackson not only won multiple championships in 2017 but also launched a merchandising partnership with Hot Topic, where their shirts became the hottest selling item in the chain's inventory.  This all while continuing their show stealing in-ring performances.  As far as tag teams go, no one in the game does it better right now than the Bucks.

The winners are: The Young Bucks





Wrestler of the Year

This category was a two-horse race, literally the entire year.  No one in WWE had a strong enough year to even deserve consideration, but two New Japan stars had undoubtedly the best year of their respective careers, and this was due in no small part to their rivalry with each other.  One man became the only gaijin to headline a WrestleKingdom show, became the first-ever IWGP US Champion, and nearly repeated his groundbreaking G1 Climax win from 2016.  The other, having fully grown into his new role as The Ace, helped elevate the IWGP Title to the most prestigious championship in the industry, stringing together one of the most incredible (and record-breaking) title reigns of all time amid a series of wildly divergent but equally game-changing matches.  Given his position as the #1 man in the company and his status as its top draw (not to mention his status as the first Japanese wrestler to be ranked atop the PWI 500), the award this year goes to the latter.  He's simply the best wrestler in the world right now. 

The winner is: Kazuchika Okada
