SUPERSTAR OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Asuka
  • Bayley
  • Becky Lynch
  • Braun Strowman
  • "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Randy Orton
  • Roman Reigns
  • Sasha Banks

PREDICTION: Drew McIntyre

MY PERSONAL PICK: Drew McIntyre deserves to win this. He's held the title twice, won the Royal Rumble, beat Brock Lesnar and has been atop his division/show for the whole year.

MATCH OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • AJ Styles vs. Daniel Bryan – Intercontinental Championship Tournament Finals: SmackDown, June 12, 2020
  • AJ Styles vs. Sami Zayn vs. Jeff Hardy – Intercontinental Championship Triple Threat Ladder Match: WWE Clash of Champions 2020
  • Becky Lynch vs. Asuka - Royal Rumble 2020
  • Drew McIntyre vs. Roman Reigns: Survivor Series 2020
  • Edge vs. Randy Orton – The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever: WWE Backlash 2020
  • Men's Royal Rumble Match: Royal Rumble 2020
  • Roman Reigns vs. Jey Uso – Universal Championship Hell in a Cell "I Quit" Match: WWE Hell in a Cell 2020
  • Sasha Banks vs. Bayley – SmackDown Women's Championship Hell in a Cell Match: WWE Hell in a Cell 2020
  • The New Day vs. The Hurt Business – Raw Tag Team Championship Match: Raw, Nov. 16, 2020
  • Undertaker vs. AJ Styles – Boneyard Match, WrestleMania 36

PREDICTION: AJ Styles vs Daniel Bryan. If not that, maybe people go with the Boneyard Match.

MY PERSONAL PICK: AJ Styles vs Daniel Bryan with Edge/Orton a close second, maybe.

RIVALRY OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Drew McIntyre vs. Randy Orton
  • Edge vs. Randy Orton
  • Lana vs. Announcer Tables
  • R-Truth vs. The World
  • Sasha Banks vs. Bayley
  • Seth Rollins vs. The Mysterio Family

PREDICTION: Edge vs Randy Orton. However, I could see Banks vs Bayley winning, even though I'd disagree on that wholeheartedly.

MY PERSONAL PICK: Edge vs Randy Orton

TAG TEAM OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler
  • Shinsuke Nakamura & Cesaro
  • The Golden Role Models
  • The New Day
  • The Street Profits

PREDICTION: The Street Profits

MY PERSONAL PICK: The Golden Role Models

RETURN OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Edge
  • Goldberg
  • MVP
  • Roman Reigns
  • Sami Zayn

PREDICTION: Edge

MY PERSONAL PICK: Edge

RING GEAR OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Bianca Belair
  • Carmella
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Sasha Banks
  • Seth Rollins
  • Shinsuke Nakamura
  • The New Day

PREDICTION: Bianca Belair or Sasha Banks

MY PERSONAL PICK: Honestly, I have no idea. Maybe The New Day.

BREAKOUT STAR OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Bianca Belair
  • Dominik Mysterio
  • Murphy
  • Otis
  • The Street Profits

PREDICTION: Otis

MY PERSONAL PICK: The Street Profits

FEMALE SUPERSTAR OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Asuka
  • Bayley
  • Becky Lynch
  • Charlotte Flair
  • Sasha Banks

PREDICTION: Sasha Banks

MY PERSONAL PICK: It really should have been Asuka, but WWE didn't book her well enough. Becky Lynch was gone most of the year, as was Charlotte Flair, so they don't deserve it. Frankly, Bayley arguably did more this year than The Boss, but since Banks is a babyface and the current champion, people will vote for her more. I'd go with her too, I guess, but I'm not as keen on anyone on this list as I should be.

MALE SUPERSTAR OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Braun Strowman
  • "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt
  • Drew McIntyre
  • Randy Orton
  • Roman Reigns

PREDICTION: Drew McIntyre

MY PERSONAL PICK: Drew McIntyre, for reasons stated in the Superstar of the Year category.

MOMENT OF THE YEAR

NOMINEES:

  • Bayley betrays Sasha Banks: SmackDown, Sept. 4, 2020
  • Becky Lynch announces her pregnancy: Raw, May 11, 2020
  • Drew McIntyre defeats Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship: WrestleMania 36
  • Edge returns in the Men's Royal Rumble Match: Royal Rumble 2020
  • Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman unite: SmackDown, August 28, 2020
  • The New Day gets drafted to different brands: Raw, Oct. 12, 2020
  • The New Day's farewell address: SmackDown, Oct. 16, 2020
  • The Undertaker's Final Farewell: Survivor Series 2020

PREDICTION: This is incredibly tough. It's down to Becky's pregnancy, Drew beats Brock, Edge returns or Undertaker's Final Farewell. I'm totally split.

MY PERSONAL PICK: Becky Lynch announces her pregnancy and Edge's return. Tied. I can't pick between those two at the moment.
