    The Fiend seems like an obvious pick for this and it will take a Herculean effort to surpass him.

    Is he the worst wrestler though or do people just dislike the booking/gimmick? Just not wanting every ‘worst award’ coming back to The Fiend and essentially this awards becoming Fiend centric.

    I personally think Fiend/Wyatt is a great wrestler. Iffy gimmick but that's whatever. I didn't think of his matches so far have been per say bad tbh

    I can honestly say that there are no more than 5 Bray Wyatt singles matches in his entire career that I would venture to rewatch and over half of them have Daniel Bryan in the opposite corner. Whether it's the gimmick/his theatrics or simply the lack of any discernible strengths in-ring, I truly think he is a really bad wrestler bell to bell. Only thing I could say to his credit in regards to his ring work is he has a pretty solid uranage in his arsenal.

    One thing that works in bray’s favour of avoiding this award is that he doesn’t wrestle that often; he only has 5 minutes of bell time to his name in 2021. If he continues to be protected, maybe the below average wrestlers who are wrestling more regularly will stand out (Dexter Lumis, LA Knight, Elias, Corbin, Braun, EVIL etc)

    In a bray-less world, Chris Jericho may get this for me. He’s been consistently the part of AEW I haven’t enjoyed
    and some of his performances have been really poor.

    I’d put Matt Hardy in this discussion as well, though I don’t think he’s featured quite as prominently as Jericho. Either way, they’re both at the top of this list. Not for lack of trying, but I genuinely can’t think of a WWE or Impact guy that’s been as bad as these two.

    What is the worst Matt Hardy match this year?

    Jericho I can get, but Matt seems more "not setting the world on fire" than bad.

    The match with Orange Cassidy was awful, not to mention Hardy getting his nose broken during it. He’s also been a part of some absolutely terrible promo stuff, like shaving the plant’s head. Basically, every time he’s on television, it’s time to change the channel. At this point, he’s somehow become a parody of the parody of himself that he was a few years ago.

    Again, though, he’s not featured as prominently as Jericho, so he’d at least only be the second worst guy in the company.

    Goldberg

    Royal Rumble was just meh bad. Summerslam was an absolute embarassment. I guess Crown Jewel was okay if we are being generous.

    Sure he's part time, but being in high profile matches each time I think makes that irrelevant.

    I thought the first OC match with the bloody nose was actually pretty decent, the recent lumberjack match less so but that was a total goofball match. Matt is pretty broken down but if he's the worst out there then the standard of pro wrestlers in 2021 must be pretty high. There are plenty of chodes on the WWE roster but who may admittedly less featured but still obviously worse as wrestlers - Mace, Veer, Shanky, Corbin, Moss, Boogs, Lumis, Knight, etc. I'd still say the 4 months or Bray Wyatt was the worst thing this year, though.

    I enjoyed the CJ match enough to forgive the debacle at SS, and the Drew match was too short to be offensive. Still, I suppose he’s a shout from WWE, depending on how much mileage you get out of his entrance.

    Yeah that first match of theirs was unexpectedly a lot of fun, some good heat there.

    Luther’s terrible and only had value once fans started meme’ing him, but has the guy even had a TV match this year to be bothered by him?
