    Re: 2017 Face Of The Year Ongoing Discussion

    Be honest, who thought I was gonna talk about Naito in here after yesterday? That's 1 day, he's got some ways to go yet.

    Someone I'm surprised to see not nominated by Shake here is Taguchi himself. Watching G1 finals night yesterday and seeing him win the tag titles and doing his dance that fans were lapping up, it hit me, this guy is a serious contender for this. He's the leader of all the pure babyfaces in New Japan.

    Speaking of which, I think young Juice probably stands a good chance in this as well. With the painfully average year Sami Zayn has had, Juice Robinson feels like the best in-ring babyface we've seen this year in terms of getting sympathy and getting fans to will him on to victory.

    Juice is probably my number one after the G1. Really textbook Babyface performances and promos and the crowds eat him up.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    I thought I had mentioned Coach Taguchi but I guess not. I would assume it's because he's not really doing anything serious in New Japan (up until now) so I never really thought about it. But yeah, Taguchi Japan has evolved into its current state rather than just being "Tanahashi and friends" so I guess that's something. Forgot that the stables popularity with certain non wrestling idols also helps (Taguchi's Jurina shirt an example of that being highlighted)

    I'm waiting to see how Naito develops. He promoed more like a face when he won G1 and he seems to be gearing himself towards the fan support. But I still view him as a heelish individual. Will see how he and Okada play off of each other. Will be super interesting given the contrasting reactions to Naito/Okada from WK8.

    Breezango have to be mentioned here. Their pre-tape segment was the biggest pop of Hell In A Cell and a guy almost died.

    It's weird how Johnny Gargano hasn't really been talked up in here and yet I think he's the blow away winner of this award (again). Continued the winning formula of the DIY tag matches for another 6 months ending in the heartbreaking heel turn from Ciampa which made Johnny the most sympathetic man on NXT. He's had his struggles returning to singles action but now he's on the road to redemption.

    Gargano is a great shout. Tyler Bate is up there too for me.

    Funny you should say that:

    1. Juice Robinson - my lock of G1 and the story remains the same. One of the most adored gaijins. Textbook babyface wrestler. Very relatable. Super firey and likable promos. What’s more to say? He’s extremely likable in every category. Should be on everyone’s short list. The first night of WTL and the fact he got Japan to like Sami really locked it for me too.

    2. Johnny Gargano - WWE’s best face. Full credit to the company for taking a guy I was extremely sick of and for the last few years making him the most rootable guy on any show and highlighting his strengths. The Ciampa turn was a factor but the guy knows what he’s doing and deserves all the admiration he gets from every crowd. The redemption/struggle story is niche but totally fits the guy.

    3. Breezango - not much into the segments as I was in the spring and summer but the pre-taped segments usually get the biggest pop of every show and they’ve done a great job of getting a vast diversity of people to watch their stuff online. Any act over with the mayor from Portlandia and Jeff Goldblum is succeeding as far as I’m concerned.

    Also considering: AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura (if his main roster tenure didn’t die a horrible death), The New Day, Roderick Strong, WWE version of Tyler Bate, ILJA DRAGUNOV, Travis Banks, Tetsuya Naito, Ryusuke Taguchi, Yugi Nagata
