If enough people want him in I am open to Ryback as a Newcomer. He was on the first NXT and part of Nexus for a few weeks, but he got injured and wasnt a significant part of anything. Also this is a pretty severe gimmick change, and we've included others who have drastically changed gimmicks or only had limited exposure before. Damien Sandow, for instance. Its a fairly nebulous category.

So if people are happy to consider him such then I'm happy to include him.

Best Wrestler - CM Punk
Best Face - Daniel Bryan
Best Heel - I'd say CM Punk but the majority cheers him, does that mean he's doing a bad job as a heel? I'll say Bully Ray
Best Moment/Decision - Punk's title reign (Not a fanboy, I promise!) Other than that it was the Yes! chants the night after Wrestlemania for me.
Best Feud/Angle - The Bryan and AJ thing, from him being mean to her, to the wedding, to Yes! - offs and then to involving Punk, was all really funny and had great matches.
Best PPV - TLC
Best Match - Tough one but I think the Shield vs Hell-No and Ryback just takes it for me.
Best Announcer - Titus O Neil?? OK, Booker T. Shucky ducky quack quack!
Best Talker - Punk
Best Female - The Bellas :D did nothing for me for so long, then just as I got into them they leave! It still hurts.
Best Tag Team - Team Hell-No
Best Cruiserweight - Can I vote Austin Aries? He's clearly small enough.
Best Newcomer - Really tough one, hard to call in WWE but I'll go with the Shield just to get more value for my vote.
Most Improved - Bully Ray, he's gone from an overweight half-of-a-has-been-team to one of my favourite guys to watch in TNA. Same to Devon.
Worst Wrestler - Khali
Worst Match - Rock/Cena is the one that sticks out as being the most dissapointing, but I know there have been matches involving Khali or Hornswoggle or Jinder (aside from the brief feud with Ryback and the 3MB) so I won't vote here.
Worst Moment/Decision - Cena beating Brock
"Get Off My TV" Award - I'll say Khali because Rock had a couple of weeks before I was sick of him.
