    If it wasn't for corona and how much better he comes across with a live crowd, Orange Cassidy could have this again. But he does deserve consideration on the strength of the PAC match.

    Would also definitely put forward "Hangman" Adam Page for breaking out as a character with cowboy shit and the drunk gimmick.

    I agree with both of those shouts from Marketh. OC and Hangman are my front runners at the moment.

    I think an even stronger case for Hangman after his return on Dynamite and the Stadium Stampede. Guy delivers gems in nearly every appearance this year.

    Dare I blaspheme this thread by saying Britt Baker? She's gone from cookie-cutter babyface to getting heat in almost every segment she's in, helped by the fact that she's had some really good matches to get her heel persona over.

    I agree, Britt Baker is a great shout for this.

    Orange Cassidy is suffering a bit from the lack of crowds, plus I really think they're overexposing him. So Britt Baker could maybe have the edge on him if she can keep this Role Model schtick up throughout a long injury, but she's been really entertaining and creative so far. I still give my nomination to Hangman for overness and creativity.

    Hangman and Brit Baker for sure... just to throw a WWE name out there.. gotta go with Bayley.
    It’s a weapon. It’s really powerful, especially against living things.

    I'm still failing to really care about Page on any substantial level so I'm sticking with Orange Cassidy for the second year in a row unless something changes.

    Douchebag Garganos is pretty high on my list right now. They have been awesome. Dexter Loomis also gets a shout.

    “Role Model” Britt Baker, Orange Cassidy, Heel Gargano and heel Candice, Hangman Page, “Monday Night Messiah”, and Le Champion are all favorites of mine so far for this year.

    If you can call Le Champion a gimmick then Jericho is running away with this for me at the moment. He has been consistently entertaining for months now and he is constantly coming up with new ways of making things work and getting things over.
