Posted by Justin Watry on 01/08/2017 at 02:42 AM

"I honestly think that you are so good (different) at how you approach columns. I know some people take compliments lightly and such, but honestly, you should be a very proud man. Boatloads of people including me, read your columns ALL THE TIME. Me personally, I wake up every morning, and before I go to school, I read your column (I'm 16). Also, your consistency with your columns is amazing, just from reading them so much, I almost feel like I know your thought process (not that I do). So with all of that out of the way, thank you."

411mania.com Year End Awards

Stay tuned to 411mania in the upcoming days/weeks. There are a ton of year end awards to be handed out, and yes, I gave my votes. Very interesting 2016 indeed. Now up! Go read 411mania for that.

Biggest Disappointments Of 2016

5. Sting and Daniel Bryan retire
4. Shane McMahon post-WrestleMania
3. Cody Rhodes leaves WWE
2. Roman Reigns fails Wellness test

1. Nobody Steps Up - WWE is king; we all know that. However, 2016 was supposed to be the year where other promotions made some kind of dent in the industry. There was TNA Impact Wrestling going to POP TV (ha!). There was GFW with content filmed (ha!). There was New Japan Pro Wrestling starting the year with a bang. There was Lucha Underground and all of their supposed momentum. Then a ton of other smaller companies were out there with new WWE/TNA releases and new distribution in the form of Flo Slam and iPPV. Yet, nothing happened. Either fans didn't care enough or those 'loyal' fans were not willing to support them financially. Ring of Honor is still in the same spot, as is everybody else...with WWE STILL king. By a wide margin, arguably even wider than when the year began. Disappointing.

Best Non-Wrestler Of 2016

5. The Pope (Love Alive charity)
4. Lana
3. Renee Young
2. JBL

1. Corey Graves - As usual, I was ahead of the curve on a topic. I was singing the praises of Corey Graves well before most even knew he was a featured player all across the WWE Network. For the second year in a row, he is the man to talk about for best non-wrestler in the industry. Not even close. He is so good at everything. Whether it is a serious role or being the comedic heel for the face commentator to argue with, Graves 'gets it.' If WWE ever needs another manager or personality to get in the ring (nothing physical obviously) to shake up the formula, look no further than this man. I can't imagine NXT without Corey Graves, so let's hope, as he expands, he stays there as well. Hey, a man can dream, right?

Best Tag Team Of 2016

5. The Dudleyz
4. American Alpha
3. The Revival
2. #DIY

1. The New Day - See, no bias from me. Even though they didn't defend the tag titles at Survivor Series 2015 (last year), Fastlane, WrestleMania 32, Payback, Battleground, and Survivor Series, yeah. With non-title losses all the time and multiple pay-per-view losses in between, of course. Nothing I have not already said a million times, so we can move on to why they are my #1 pick. Simple. Despite all the faults of their Honky Tonk Man style run as tag team champions, the fact remains they DID set the record for longest reign ever. Thus, for history alone, The New Day get the top spot. Whether it is actually deserved or not is up to you.
