    2014 Babyface Of The Year - Ongoing Discussion

    From Daniel Bryan to John Cena to Dean Ambrose, we've had some great babyfaces this year but who are the front runners for the award?

    I like Ambrose a lot. He's an amazing talker, and his style is wonderful as a face. He's been wrestling as a face for the majority of the year, consistently having great matches throughout, and wrestling as a face longer than Bryan was active (Bryan being my number 2).

    If you go on what they have achieved so far I will go Daniel Bryan because of the great run and the Mania spectacle but with him out for the rest of the year it will probably end up being Dean Ambrose. Cena should also be mentioned here however much some people despise him.

    Daniel Bryan still has this over Ambrose for now, but Dean's got 4 months to take it home still.

    I don't think any babyface is going to come close to topping Daniel Bryan's run to Mania and the show itself, but there's still time.

    Ambrose and Sami Zayn are the other top contenders here for me.

    Going to echo the same things. Bryan's run to Mania was epic. He's the clear winner right now, but Ambrose is turning into the rebellious outlaw that the company needs. He's excelling as a face.

    Really good year for this. Bryan has it for sure atm, but Ambrose could take it home, Cena's fire babyface promos have been out of this world good, and Sami Zayn is Sami Zayn

    Yes the WM run/finish was amazing but that's only 3 months. I also thought his run post-Mania was well below average for much of it, not all his fault by any means but lets at least be objective.

    Ambrose has basically overcome everything to be the most effective guy around regardless of what material he's given. Excellent babyface in multiple roles, from Ricky Morton to Dick Murdoch he's the man.

    Daniel Bryan defeated Triple H and Orton/Batista in the opening/closing matches of WMXXX. Sorry, there is no way Ambrose is touching that, as much as I love him.

    Bryan's night at Wrestlemania will be touted for about the next 10-20 years on every WM promotional video.

    That's a good point. It's definitely gonna be up there with Hogan slamming Andre, Rock/Austin staredown, Boyhood dream has come true, etc.

    I'd be throwing Roman Reigns' name out if it wasn't for the mediocre singles run so far. Him powering out of the Sister Abigail at EC was one the best moments of the year.

    Yeah, Daniel Bryan is taking this... no-one else comes close.

    His injury has taken him out of people's minds but his WrestleMania moment was one of those great wrestling moments and why I love wrestling so much.

    I'm totally going to nominate Damien Mizdow for this.

    Tonight's sealed my vote:

    Spoiler:

    As great as Daniel Bryan's Wrestlemania moment was, that was 8 months ago and I can't vote for someone who's missed that much of the year. Sami Zayn has been a brilliant babyface all year in chasing the NXT Championship, and his title win tonight was perfect, a moment to rival Bryan's title win you could argue.

    Zayn FTW

    Without question. And it's not even close. If I had a vote it would be Zayn with 75% and Bryan with 25%.

    I think this is a great topic in general because the cases for so many can be made. We've had several people heat up over the year sharing top spots and having their own defining moments. I think its always difficult to go against Cena no matter whose had a good year. Cena has almost nothing but good years in retrospect. How do you go against the posterboy? He's the only one who is consistently there at the top, he almost always the focus SOME HOW, he always gets the title at some point, the story continues......

    yeah, wwe has 5 awesome babys in cena, ziggler, bryan, ambrose, and zayn.

    zayn takes it though after tonight imo. bryan would be closer if he didnt get hurt. cenas great, zigglers great, and ambrose is great, but sami's #1

    That's one way to look at it, but I'm not one for just going with kayfabe accomplishments in this.

    He may be consistently at the top, but the work Cena has actually done has been inconsistent. The Rumble match with Orton wasn't good, the feud with Wyatt was very up and down and included the worst match of the year at Extreme Rules, had one of his worst title reigns to date where the only highlight was him getting his ass kicked by Lesnar and in the big battle against The Authority, Ziggler outshined him as the better babyface. For every promo Cena knocks it out of the park, there's a garbage one just around the corner.

    You can count the great Cena matches this year on one hand, but you gotta be a mutant to count the great Sami Zayn matches on one hand. There's been better than Cena this year easily.
