    Would Bad Bunny fit this category technically?

    I'll allow it because technically Zelina was wrestling in 2019 when she won this again.

    Yeah, I'd say Bad Bunny. He was tremendous in the spots I've seen for Mania, plus the segments involving him were interesting. I hated it at first but now I love Bad Bunny

    Right off the bat I'm supporting Don Callis for this.

    Callis is a good shout.

    Although I’ll echo what Blaine said and agree that Bunny I think would get the nod from me at the moment. Only because of how committed he seemed to all of it when he didn’t need to be. He wanted to do it so even though I had no idea who he was before the Rumble I have to give him massive props.

    If Bad Bunny sticks around I think he could take my vote, but Don Callis is the only good thing about Omega/Bucks/Brothers/whatever right now, and if he keeps that going, it'll be hard to be the longevity of it.

    I know the chances are slim because it’s Ring of Honor and not one of the big two and it’s highly unlikely that they’ll be a non wrestler but the end of the year but I really enjoy Quinn McKay’s character work. I miss the days when backstage correspondents and hosts could have a personality, now it feels like only commentators are allowed a schtick.

    I think I gave her a nom in 2019 when I watched ROH more frequently, she's definitely deserving of a mention.

    So Don Callis has totally run away with it already, right?

    I’d throw out Dan Lambert, I found his promos and the American Top Team stuff really dull at start but his promo this past week was so fluent, I think he’s definitely stood out from a lot of managers.

    He’s had the opposite effect for me, I thought he was great at first and a heel that’s essentially Cornette without having to deal with Cornette seems like a great idea for AEW. But it’s the same promo with different insider terms and anti-AEW/indie wrestling soundbites every week and he usually goes way longer than needed. His delivery’s great, I’m bored of the content and borderline breaking kayfabe at times.

    It’s Don Callis or Paul Heyman that get my vote for sure.

    Yeah once it became apparent that Lambert's entire schtick was to just to throw out as many trigger words as possible while sounding like he's jacked on cocaine, I got kinda bored of it. His promos are overlong and just drenched in shock value. Callis is still the best manager in AEW this year.

    I like Lambert's shtick but it's hard to give this to anyone not named Don Callis

    The only time WWE came close to a good story line post Attitude Era was Undertaker/Mordecai - Dakstang
