We had 144 votes, the biggest ever by a long way, and here are the results after hours of work:

=========================
Idiot(s) of the Year

Previous Winners:
2003 - Triple H
2004 - Vince McMahon

1. SmackDown! Writers - 33
2. Johnny Ace - 23
3. TNA Booking Committee - 21

Obviously the Juniors division, Tim White killing himself, Jillian's growth, Randy Orton blowing up Eddie's low rider, and some other SmackDown! writing hasn't been your kettle of fish in 2005. Not even Johnny Ace releasing half the roster could beat it.

=========================
Get off my TV Award

Previous Winners:
2003 - Triple H
2004 - Gene Snitsky

1. Jeff Jarrett - 35
2. The Coach - 27
3. Stephanie McMahon - 19

The self-proclaimed King of the Mountain and near-permanent NWA Champion Jeff Jarrett is the man that the most people want to leave their television sets. In an inversely harsh way, this is TNA's first victory!

=========================
Worst PPV of 2005

Previous Winners:
2003 - Bad Blood
2004 - Great American Bash

1. WWE Great American Bash - 68
2. TNA Destination X - 22
3. WWE Backlash - 12

Wow, Great American Bash really got given a rough ride, and deservedly so considering the dreadful nature of the PPV. The GAB is now 2 from 2 for Worst PPV awards since the WWE brought it back.

=========================
Worst Match of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002 - Jackie Gayda/Christopher Nowinski vs. Trish Stratus/Bradshaw
2003 - Vince McMahon vs. Stephanie McMahon
2004 - Tyson Tomko vs. Stevie Richards

1. Big Show v Akebono - WrestleMania 21 - 30
2. Batista v The Coach (w/ Vader and Goldust) - Taboo Tuesday - 24
3. Orlando Jordan v Heidenreich - Judgment Day - 18

Sumo wrestling obviously isn't a favourite of the voters, the 30 second sumo contest between two large men at WrestleMania being voted the worst contest of 2005, even beating out a strong challenge from a grossly overweight Vader.

=========================
Worst Wrestler of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002 - A-Train
2003 - Nathan Jones
2004 - Mordecai

1. John Cena - 36
2. Tyson Tomko - 34
3. Viscera - 19

After a very close contest, it's the current WWE Champion John Cena who walks away with the "honour" of being the Worst Wrestler of 2005. As the apathy towards Cena grows, it shows not even Tyson Tomko can keep up with the hatred coming his way.

=========================
Hero of 2005

Previous Winners:
2004 - Chris Benoit

1. Christian - 38
2. Shawn Michaels - 31
3. Matt Hardy - 22

Walking out on the WWE and joining TNA proved a popular decision for the fans, as Christian saw off Shawn Michaels' challenge to be the hero of the year. Will it be a popular decision for other WWE wrestlers in 2006?

=========================
Best PPV of 2005

Previous Winners:
2003 - WrestleMania 19
2004 - WrestleMania XX

1. WWE WrestleMania 21 - 50
2. ECW One Night Stand - 48
3. WWE SummerSlam - 10

In a close race, WrestleMania continues its winning tradition, holding off ECW One Night Stand by just two votes. A definite two-horse race that went right down to the final few votes.

=========================
Best Announcer of 2005

Previous Winners:

2002 - Jim Ross
2004 - Jim Ross

1. Tazz - 41
2. Jim Ross - 39
3. Jerry Lawler - 12
3. Mike Tenay - 12

Tazz ends JR's reign at the top by a slim margin. Joey Styles, who was not in this year's poll due to only being in his job for just over a month when the awards began, will certainly be vying for top spot next year.

=========================
Best Diva of 2005

Previous Results:
2004 - Lita

1. Trish Stratus - 44
2. Melina - 27
3. Christy Hemme - 10
3. Maria - 10

Trish proved her dominance as the top female in wrestling with a comfortable win over the rookie diva Melina. Will Melina be closer next year? Last year's winner Lita only got 5 votes and finished 10th overall.

=========================
Best Feud of 2005

NEW AWARD

1. Randy Orton vs. The Undertaker - 33
2. Kurt Angle vs. Shawn Michaels - 25
3. HHH vs. Batista - 18

Despite caskets being set on fire, low riders crashing, Bob Orton's head bleeding, Taker appearing in mirrors, cars driving off, Josh Matthews being possessed, fake dummies, real dummies, shoulder surgeries and Randy Orton's bad acting, the feud between Taker and Orton won your vote as feud of the year.

=========================
Best Newcomer of 2005

NEW AWARD

1. Ken Kennedy - 53
2. Chris Masters - 27
3. Bobby Lashley - 19

MISTERRRRRR KENNEDY won your vote as the best newcomer of 2005, and looks set to return from injury and be a big name in 2006. The Masterpiece's second place may or may not be down to an influx of votes from "Ssur".

KENNEDY.

=========================
Best Cruiserweight of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002, 2003, 2004 - Rey Mysterio

1. Juventud - 33
2. Petey Williams - 26
3. Chavo Guerrero Jr. - 15

Due to a new ruling, Rey was unable to defend his award (If nominated for Wrestler of the Year, they are not eligible for Cruiserweight of the Year, also applied for AJ and Daniels), so Juventud took home the prize for Best Cruiserweight.

=========================
Best Tag Team of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002 - Kurt Angle and Chris Benoit
2003 - The World's Greatest Tag Team
2004 - William Regal and Eugene

1. MNM - 71
2. America's Most Wanted - 19
3. Team 3D - 16

The biggest victory of the whole awards went to the rookie team of MNM, with nearly 50% of the total vote. TNA fans can take consolotation in taking 2nd and 3rd places.

=========================
Best Heel of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002 - Paul Heyman
2003 - Kane
2004 - Triple H

1. Kurt Angle - 31
2. Triple H - 18
3. Edge - 15
3. Randy Orton - 15

Despite being a lover of beastiality, Kurt Angle's heelish behaviour over the past twelve months made you content enough to vote him as a comfortable winner of the Heel of the Year prize.

=========================
Best Face of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002 - Rob Van Dam
2003 - Shawn Michaels
2004 - John Cena

1. Batista - 43
2. Shawn Michaels - 26
3. John Cena - 16

The World Heavyweight champion takes home the Best Face prize, an award made all the more likely by managing to get it on with Melina.

=========================
Best Match of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002 - Triple H vs. Shawn Michaels
2003 - Chris Benoit vs. Kurt Angle
2004 - Chris Benoit vs. Shawn Michaels vs. Triple H

1. Shawn Michaels v Kurt Angle - WrestleMania 21 - 43
2. Christopher Daniels v AJ Styles v Samoa Joe - Unbreakable - 18
3. Money In The Bank Ladder Match - WrestleMania 21 - 11

The first incarnation of the dream match of Michaels vs. Angle got your vote as the top match of 2005 by some distance. The second match between the two only got 2 votes.

=========================
Best Wrestler of 2005

Previous Winners:
2002 - Kurt Angle
2003 - Kurt Angle
2004 - Chris Benoit

1. Shawn Michaels - 23
2. Kurt Angle - 22
3. AJ Styles - 19

In an incredibly close award, Shawn Michaels just pips Kurt Angle to win the Best Wrestler award. It literally went down to the final vote of the awards, with Michaels and Angle tied on 22.

=========================
HALL OF FAME INDUCTEES 2005

Shawn Michaels
Eddie Guerrero
Ric Flair
Hulk Hogan
Triple H

Just missing out were:

Bret Hart
Steve Austin
The Undertaker
Kurt Angle
Chris Benoit
The Rock
Mick Foley

Votes also went to:

Hardcore Holly
CM Punk
Ken Kennedy
Gene Snitsky
Billy Gunn
Jonathan Coachman
Bushwhackers
Lashley
Giant Haystacks
Jeff Hardy

A surprisingly low turnout for the Hall of Fame, about half of the people who voted for the awards chose not to choose 5 people for the Hall of Fame. Disappointing, but at least we got 4 good choices and Triple H.

=========================

That concludes the awards for 2005. Thanks to everyone who voted :thumbup2:.

Hogan should of won (and was) face of 2005, God knows how HBK came second when he had a heel stint that was the best heel work of 2005. Barring that loonacy, the rest was accurate.

Hogan wasn't around enough to be a candidate for face of the year, whereas Michaels spent 11 months as one.

Frankly I think there is probably more than a few people that were behind HBK when he went against Hogan too and as you say Hogan was not around that much.

It was my pleasure. As there were so many votes (exactly double the amount we had for the 2002 (the first) awards), it did take some time to get through. But I enjoy doing these sort of things, and especially with the intrigue of things like HBK/Angle's battle for Wrestler of the Year, and my constant begging to find votes for Austin and Bret to get in the Hall of Fame ahead of HHH, it made for an enjoyable experience.

Obviously people will say that certain nominations were wrong, and it was my fault entirely that Eddie/Reys' feud was overlooked. You can't argue with the answers though, the majority decided.

For fun, here's the list of everyone with over 2 votes in the HoF voting:

Shawn Michaels 49
Eddie Guerrero 43
Ric Flair 40
Hulk Hogan 34
Triple H 26
------------------------
Bret Hart 25
Steve Austin 25
The Undertaker 22
Kurt Angle 20
Chris Benoit 18
The Rock 11
Mick Foley 10
AJ Styles 9
Dynamite Kid 7
Rey Mysterio Jr 7
Roddy Piper 6
Christian 6
Batista 5
Ted DiBiase 5
Vince McMahon 4
John Cena 4
Raven 4
British Bulldog 4
Bruno Sammartino 3
Randy Savage 3
Jeff Jarrett 3
Rick Rude 3
William Regal 2
Harley Race 2
Bobby Heenan 2
Samoa Joe 2
Paul Heyman 2
Big Bossman 2
CM Punk 2
Hardcore Holly 2
Owen Hart 2
Jim Duggan 2
Chris Jericho 2
JBL 2
Randy Orton 2
Jim Ross 2
Matt Hardy 2
Ricky Steamboat 2
Yokozuna 2
Christopher Daniels 2
Edge 2
Kevin Nash 2
Vader 2
Arn Anderson 2
Curt Hennig 2

I am kinda dissapointed that TNA didn't appear in more awards, especially the the best PPV Award because in my opinion they were far better than the WWE, but I guess that is due to more people watching the WWE.

Nevermind.

Hogan was the most over face on TV for almost 5 months but still, no biggie, I agree with all the other results. Carlito should be the biggest face for calling Michaels "HBGay" on Byte This, heh. :lol:

I really wish that One Night Stand would have won. The entire PPV was good the entire time while mania had sumo matches and even worst HHH in the main event.

I know I'm a Cena mark, but how anyone thinks he's a worse wrestler than Viscera is beyond me.

Great job though Chris, I like it.
