    This is gonna be a tough one this year because the COVID-19 situation means there's even less opportunities for young wrestlers out there atm. The only person who comes to mind who I can see an improvement in during the first 4 months of the year is Britt Baker. But it's definitely too early to get an idea on this award.

    Humberto Carillo? Come on leaps and bounds since going to Raw, and working with the likes of Rey & Andrade.

    There's a few guys in MLW who could qualify for this. Folks like Douglas James, Alexander Hammerstone & Brian Pillman Jr who are getting an environment to work out the kinks in their game that they may not have got elsewhere. Then someone like Davey Boy Smith Jr who's getting the chance to sink or swim as a top guy for a promotion.

    ROH wise, Alex Zayne could break out. Josh Woods is finally putting it together too now he's found some direction with Silas Young.

    He’s not necessarily improved, but he’s been given more opportunities to stand out and always delivers great character work and memorable moments - Sammy Guevara.

    Yeah it feels like Sammy should get something like "Rising Star of the Year" or some shit like that but since that's not something we have, I think most improved is appropriate.

    He was always a talented guy, but I think this year he's matured and put everything together so that he's not just another spotfest first round of BOLA level guy and is thinking about the broader aspects of wrestling. You can tell working so closely with Jericho has rubbed off on him in making his on-screen time count and getting little things over. I'd back him for this award atm.

    Sammy's a great shout but I wanna also throw in Hangman Page for this one. He used to be one of those guys that I saw no value in, great character work but I didn't like him in-ring. That has completely changed and I find him way better in-ring than he used to be.

    Yeah, I mean compare him to Kip Sabian who he worked with a year ago at the first Double or Nothing. Two spotty indy guys, Sammy clearly has a cocky heel character but is nothing we haven't seen before, Kip is a blank slate. Now Sammy is an established character who's shown great comic timing, personality and creativity and we can't wait to see him get destroyed. Meanwhile, Kip is trying but nothing's landing and struggles to show onscreen chemistry with his IRL girlfriend.

    Dexter Lumis has to be in the talking now. I think Preist too is worth a nod. Apollo Crews maybe?
