    FWA 2020 End-of-Year Awards Thread

    First off, let me thank everyone for an amazing 2020. I think this was one of the strongest years I can remember for the FWA. Our numbers grew. We had incredible, memorable feuds. The discussion levels returned to the PWS shoutbox days — thanks in large form to Gipper and his Discord management efforts. In all, the community is thriving and growing as we head to 2021. I know it's easy to point to something like the COVID-19 pandemic as a reason for the uptick in activity. That might be part of the explanation — as we're much more housebound right now, with more time to promo and be active in the FWA.

    However, I think the increased dialogue and the community feel — and even the uptick in competitiveness — is healthy for that as well. Once the vaccine gets implemented fully, I expect we drop a tad bit in numbers. However, I don't expect us to drop considerably. We should remain at a healthy number that borders on too much for one brand.

    And I'll leave that last sentiment ... for now.

    It's time for the end-of-year awards, which will be voted on my the FWA community and revealed at an upcoming Fight Night in January. This is an exciting time, a chance to remember and recognize the outstanding efforts of people in our community.

    A few rules:

    1. You can vote for as many categories as you wish.

    2. You can vote for up to two (2) choices per category. In the past, it was just one but I want to give people a chance to give their nod to multiples if they want.

    3. IF you vote for two, please rank your votes. So list a winner and a runner-up. If you don't, then your votes will be scored as if you were voting them as equals.

    Example:
    Character of the Year
    1. Bronco Wells
    2. Gruff the Buffalo

    Tag Team of the Year
    1. The Mops
    2. The Tops
    4. Eligibility is for anything from October 1, 2019 until December 31, 2020. We did not do end-of-year awards in 2019, so we are allowing for some late 2019 stuff to qualify. Therefore, anything from Desert Storm 2019 is eligible for consideration.

    5. The other two mods can vote. I will not vote unless there are ties, in which case I'll drop down the hammer.

    6. You cannot vote for yourself or anything related to you. If you do, your vote(s) for that category will not be counted.

    Please get your votes in by Monday, January 11. Send them via PM to myself or either of the other two mods (Sulley and Jimmy King).The categories are below.

    Character of the Year (example: Michael Garcia)


    Match of the Year (please consider the quality of the promos submitted along with the match write-up itself)


    Tag Team of the Year (all tag teams from the tournament are eligible, along with The New breed and The Crimson Knights)


    Feud of the Year (example: Krash versus Mike Parr; Bell Connelly vs. MvH)


    Angle/storyline of the Year (example: The mystery attacker angle; the co-champs angle)


    Show of the Year:
    Qualifying events include Desert Storm 2019, Back in Business XIV, Payback 2020, Division's Rules 2020, 15th Anniversary Show, Mile High 2020, and 19 Fight Night or supershow events between October 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020.


    Promo/RP of the year


    Moment of the year (example: Danny Toner winning the Gauntlet Championship; Nova Diamond winning Carnal Contendership)


    Title Reign of the Year (visit our title histories page for reference; if it ended after October 1, 2019, then it's eligible)


    Open Promo participant of the year


    Rookie/newcomer of the year (the character AND the RP’er had to debut some time between October 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020, and they had to appear on at least one show):
    Qualifying characters include Alyster Black, Gerald Grayson, Chris Peacock, Saus X, Kayden Knox, Eli Black, The Valanders, and Alexandria Marie


    Return of the Year (the character had to return as a regular member of the roster some time between October 1, 2019 and December 31, 2020):
    Qualifying characters include Randy Ramon, Danny Toner, Thomas Princeton, Humanity, Donovan Moore, Mac Michaud


    Non-mod contributor of the year
    This will be voted on by the three mods, based on match-writing, fill-in grading, graphics work, and overall activity within the community to enhance the FWA experience for others


    Mod of the year:
    Jimmy King, Sulley, TGO, and Sayer
    If I have forgotten anyone from the qualifying lists, please let me know asap and I'll add you in. Remember, they must fit the October 1, 2019 to December 31, 2020 timeline. For instance, Golden and Garcia would be good candidates for Return of the Year, but they returned to the active roster before October 1, 2019.

    Recent bias be damned, for my money, it's going to be very hard to unearth a gem better than this for promo of the year;

    This is a friendly reminder that I’m up for taking any bribes.

    Also now to remember when certain promos actually happened because I don’t remember anything.

    Some matches I can think of for Match Of The Year, given recency bias, or MvH/Connely @ Mile High, The Bar Fight @ Crossfire Christmas Reunion, and by my bias Saus X/J.J.Jay @ Mile High
    Saus X W/L Record
    2/0/1

    Crimson Knights W/L Record
    0/0/0

    Created some signature banners that the eventual winners can add to their profile if they would like to.
