Standard caveats:
-The timeframe covers December to November.
-Some of the overall awards are available to both wrestling and MMA organizations. (Sometimes this makes sense, sometimes this doesn't.)
-I didn't vote. Maybe someone else here did.
-If there's no WWE/NXT in the top three, I'll list their top finisher.

Why would you have a category for "Best Box Office Draw" on a write-in poll? It's not a matter of opinion. It's 15 seconds of Google followed by "Oh, that guy is the best box office draw."

If you want something alittle more resonable, you can always check out the RSPW awards here:

http://mightygodking.com/2017/02/22/the-2016-rspw-awards-full-results/

I think with the Observer Awards you kind of know what you are getting.



It's the most important meal of the day.
