    I think this could be the most interesting year for this award yet with AEW's good use of managers, in particular Jake the Snake, and the long awaited debut of Stokeley Hathaway/Malcolm Bivens on NXT TV.

    Jake the Snake's a pretty strong candidate so far. Not a false step in any of his promos yet, apart from a dodgy fire effect, which I won't blame him for.

    Yeah I've got to like the Jake the Snake shout, seems like a stronger choice than some recent years.

    I think I'm going to end up going Vega, again.

    Her star seems to be getting brighter and brighter!

    Now running with her own faction as well. She's done really well.

    I think Jake will be a candidate for sure.

    Cannot look past Taz for this. Think he's been excellent.

    Can't believe I thought NXT was gonna give Bivens a fair shake.

    Pearce has been fine but he hasn't really done anything notable with his role.

    Taz has been a total revelation in AEW, completely re-vitalised himself as a heel manager. Feels like he's been wasted at the booth with his awesome he's been in this run. Starks can talk but Cage would be a lost cause without Taz carrying him.

    Jake was my early contender and probably would still be my guy, but the limited booking of him due to Covid and his age, plus Archer testing positive, as well as creative having nothing significant for them in a long while works against him. He does get the award for Best / Most WTF Line of the Year with "You're just a squirrel trying to get a nut, well you're not gonna be busting any nuts in this ring!"

    So I'll give the nod to Taz instead too.

    Taz would be my pick as well. I like Jake but Taz is better for the style of promos AEW does. Jake Roberts is more suited to the backstage video packages than a live crowd one.

    Commentator on Dark, and managing a group on Dynamite consisting of Ricky Starks and Brian Cage.

    I'll give my vote to Taz too.

    Even if Zelina had of stayed, this was Taz's award all wrapped up. Although with Zelina, if we count someone who wrestles a little on the side, does Pat McAfee count for this?

    I might vote Tony S in here as well for his role in the Britt stuff. I quite like Jake Roberts too.
