Hustle Is Posting Right Now - 2012 #BlackTwitter Hussy Awards
By Hustle

"As far as award shows, we all know how that goes.."





Last year, I brought you the first annual #BlackTwitter Hussy Awards, turning it into a podcast as well as a written column. It was my own unique twist on the glut of year-end columns that you'll read everywhere. Each award is named after a word or phrase that is popular in the #BlackTwitter section of the social media site. I wanted to do the same thing again this year, but time constraints forced me to make a few changes. First of all, it's just going to be a column this year, and not a podcast. The biggest change, however, is that I won't be turning the voting over to my readers this year. Again, it's more of a time restraint thing, but this year, I'll just be picking my own winners of every category. Do not worry, though, ladies and gentlemen.. if you're looking to cast your vote for something in my columns, Hustle Madness is just around the corner.

There's a lot to get to in this column, so let's get on with the proceedings.

#Nah

This award is given to the wrestler/personality that has made the most outlandish claim of the year. The only logical response that a person can make upon hearing or reading this claim is simply.. Nah. There's nothing else that can be said when such ridiculousness is thrown out into the world. The nominees are..

- Hulk Hogan, for saying that he wants to win the TNA World Title in 2013
- Jeff Katz, for bullshitting people about the Wrestling Retribution Project, which still hasn't become available, even after more than $100,000 was funded for it
- Kenn Doane, for his continued, near-obsessive comments about John Cena
- Kevin Nash, for saying that Eddie Guerrero and Chris Benoit hugging at WrestleMania 20 was "the end of the business", and then discussing small dicks in porn
- Jeff Hardy, for anything said during the insanely stupid "inner monologue" segments on Impact
- Davey Richards, for pretty much anything he said
- Abraham Washington, for how he handled being released by WWE for his Kobe Bryant joke on Raw
- Hulk Hogan, again, for referring to Garett Bischoff as "the future" of wrestling

There's a lot of choices here. No matter what, Hulk Hogan deserves a special award for being nominated twice here, and if you ask some, he probably could have made the list more than just those two times. In the end, though, I kept coming back to one thing.

..and the winner is.. Abraham Washington


Look.. I have no problem with people saying controversial things. I really don't. I've said more than my fair share of controversial things in my columns, on podcasts or on social media. That isn't my issue here. The first problem I have is how dated the comment was. Kobe Bryant's legal troubles, referenced in AW's comment, happened in the summer of 2003. That's a full nine years before AW said what he said. Way to stay up-to-date with your pop culture references, dipshit. You gonna make a joke about Titanic next? Perhaps a super hip skewing of the Macarena? That was an awful attempt at comedy, from someone who has shown that he possesses a good sense of humor on television in the past.

Once he was released, though, he just would not.. shut.. up. Dozens and dozens and dozens of tweets, day after day after day, blaming anything and everything for his release.. except himself. It was this person's fault he was released. It was because of this thing that he was released. It's that person's fault he was released. Everything was just dripping with bitterness, wrapped up in a nice 1990's Def Comedy Jam "curse for the fucking sake of cursing because you can fucking curse whenever the fuck you want to fucking curse" style. He never took the blame for saying what he said, and stopping to understand that maybe.. just maybe.. a joke even hinting at rape and sexual assault has no business on a television show that is rated TV-PG. He kept clamoring for the Attitude Era, saying that he was going to bring it back to wrestling, and.. well, we're all still waiting, because he faded away into the world of irrelevance once more and more people begin to grow tired of his act on Twitter.

For everything, from the original comment to his 15 minutes of Twitter fame, he deserves the #Nah award over Hulk Hogan, who is only trying to do what he thinks will help TNA, as delusional as it might be, and over Kevin Nash, who is an admitted "troll" that says things just for the sake of getting people to react. Congratulations, AW. I guess.


#Swag

This award goes to the wrestler that has made the biggest improvement on their situation/position from one year to the next. That could mean someone that has improved their in-ring work the most from 2011 to 2012, or to someone who has moved up the card the most from 2011 to 2012 (for example: wrestling in pre-show dark matches in 2011 and being a World Champion in 2012). The nominees are..

- Sheamus
- Dolph Ziggler
- Bully Ray
- Kevin Steen
- Antonio Cesaro
- The Shield
- Devon
- Daniel Bryan

There are a few interesting things you notice when you look at the list of nominees here. First of all, both members of the Dudley Boyz/Team 3D are included, which says something about how their singles careers have gone since they split up. The next thing you'd notice is how "indy-centric" the list is. Kevin Steen is still on the independent scene, of course, but you have two indy legends in Daniel Bryan and Antonio Cesaro, as well as two-thirds of The Shield being huge names on the indy circuit over the last several years, and on top of that, Dolph Ziggler is an overwhelming favorite of the internet wrestling fans, who fall into the same intersections of the Wrestling Fan venn diagram as the indy fans. My choice here might be a bit of a surprise to some, and a bit of a reach to others, but I can do what I want.

..and the winner is..The Shield


Hear me out, though. In 2011, these guys were all in FCW/NXT, achieving different levels of success, but nobody really know what was in store for them. In 2012, their levels of success rose exponentially, and while nobody knew what would be in store for their future, they surprised the world by being called up to WWE's main roster and have been running roughshod ever since. They went from being "nobodies" to participating in many people's choice for 2012 Match Of The Year (stay tuned to see if it gets my pick) and are looking to be one of the most dominant factions in the history of wrestling when it comes to how they've been booked and the damage they've caused. That's quite the jump from one year to another, and it's something that probably won't be replicated again anytime in the near future. Come on.. their first match might be Match Of The Year. Think about how insane that is for a moment. We're in a day and age where a wrestler winning a World Title in their first year is looked at as being a big deal. Seth Rollins, Dean Ambrose and Roman Reigns are already ahead of the pace that your favorite wrestlers were when they made their "big time" wrestling debuts. The future is very bright for those guys, to say the least.


#TheStruggle

This award is on the other side of the fence as #Swag. It is given to the wrestler that has made the biggest decline on their situation/position from one year to the next. Maybe it's someone who has seen their in-ring skills drop off, or maybe it's someone who was on top of the world in 2011, only to have the world on top of them in 2012. The nominees are..

- Mark Henry
- Evan Bourne
- Beth Phoenix
- The Miz
- Daniel Bryan
- Jack Swagger
- Mr. Anderson
- Zack Ryder

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Daniel Bryan is listed here, as well as in the previous category. However, if you look at what he achieved in 2011, and then look at his up-and-down 2012, it starts to make sense. He had an amazing 2011, and it all came crashing down at WrestleMania, where he dropped the World Title to Sheamus in 18 seconds. Everyone thought it would be the end of the road for him as any sort of a major player on the WWE roster, but he has resurrected his career in beautiful fashion, going on to become the WWE's Most Valuable Performer of 2012, delivering the best performances on WWE programming week in and week out. He didn't win the last award, though, and guess what? He didn't win this one, either.

..and the winner is..Mr. Anderson


I really, really wanted to give this award to Zack Ryder, but I couldn't. While Ryder had quite the fall from grace, it doesn't compare to what the man formerly known as Mr Kennedy.. Kennedy.. went through. In 2011, Anderson not only won the TNA World Title, he won it twice, although he held the title for a combined 64 days in those two reigns. In 2012, not only has he not done much of note, he has disappeared from television for months at a time. Twice. That just doesn't make a whole lot of sense. He hasn't exactly been in the news for being suspended, or even for being injured. He just.. wasn't put on TV. Can you imagine WWE giving their World Title to someone twice in a year, and then going months at a time without even using them on television? Go ahead and picture Randy Orton as the World Champion one month, and then he drops the title. A couple weeks later, he has a rematch, but fails to regain the title. A few weeks after that, he's wrestling in random matches in the upper-midcard. Then.. he's gone. No matches. No promos. Nothing. You don't see any reports of him being suspended. No Wellness Policy violations. No movies to film. No injuries to deal with. They just aren't using him. Then, out of nowhere, he's back on television a couple months later. Only TNA could pull that off, folks.

On the bright side for Anderson and his fans, though, he appears to be involved in the Aces & 8's storyline, so his 2013 could be better than his 2012. Of course, Aces & 8's have lost every single match they've been in since being formed (only a slight exaggeration), so it might not be that big of an improvement.


#Fade

This is awarded to the wrestler/personality that you just want to disappear from your television screens. You aren't wishing for their death or anything. You just wish you could go through the rest of your wrestling-watching life without seeing them again, so you're looking to offer them the "fade", which means to take them out. The nominees are..

- Zema Ion
- Hulk Hogan
- Brad Maddox
- The Miz
- Hornswoggle
- Garett Bischoff
- Zack Ryder
- Taz

Right off the jump, let me be the first to say that I'm as surprised as any of you are that Jinder Mahal didn't make the list. I'm still not a fan of his, but placing him with Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre in 3MB is actually a decent role for him. I still don't have to see him wrestle all that much, but in this new gimmick, he's actually showing more than just that one angry/constipated facial expression, so.. hooray. I guess.

For this, I had to look at what good these people bring to wrestling, if anything at all. Reasons I would pass on handing them the fade, if you will. A few of them had easy answers that came to me right away, and a couple of them required more thinking, but when all was said and done, one name really stood out, and I wasn't able to come up with anything positive for him.

..and the winner is..Taz


Surprised? You shouldn't be.

I really dislike everything about Zema Ion, but on the bright side, I don't have to see him every week, and when I do, it's only for a couple measly minutes. I don't like what has happened to Hulk Hogan and his mystique, but on the bright side, he has a mystique to begin with, and I can hold on to the fact that any WWE crowd on the planet would go apeshit if "Real American" suddenly played during an episode of Raw or during a pay-per-view. I don't like anything about the in-ring skills or the promo skills of Brad Maddox, but on the bright side, he looks like the Lords Of Podcast Roundtable's very own Kyle, so it's actually funny to watch him get his ass kicked. Everyone knows I dislike The Miz, and that dislike has actually increased since Miz turned face, but on the bright side, he's still capable of an entertaining match with the right opponent and given the right amount of time to work with. I'm not a fan of what Hornswoggle does with his time on television, but on the bright side, he continues to be over with the younger audience, which means he still deserves that time on television, whether the rest of the IWC thinks so or not. I think Garett Bischoff is atrocious in the ring, but on the bright side, TNA has not only put his push on the back burner, but they've turned the stove off completely and let the pot sit there, allowing the contents to go cold. I've grown so terribly tired of Zack Ryder's act, but on the bright side, that act isn't a featured one anymore.

That leaves Taz. For one, his color commentary skills are about as bottom-of-the-barrel as it gets without being completely outside of the barrel, underneath it, being smashed into the ground. He's awful. His humor isn't funny. He doesn't help to put anyone over. He doesn't even use his own lengthy career in the ring to tell stories or to help the fans at home understand the psychology of wrestling any more than they already do. He botches everything, from the names of wrestlers to the names of moves to random words in the English language. To make everything worse, you have to deal with him for two hours every single Thursday night, and then another three hours on random Sunday nights for pay-per-views. Even when Michael Cole was at his most obnoxious worst, you knew it was a gimmick he was playing, albeit a super-annoying one that had no business invading our ear drums every week. With Taz, it's crystal clear that he isn't playing any sort of gimmick. What you hear is really him, and that sends a cold, cold chill up and down my spine.


#Eek

This goes to the least-liked female wrestler/personality that a promotion continues to push in any shape or form. "Eek" is a word to describe only the lowest form of heauxs. This isn't necessarily for the worst worker, worst talker, etc, just for the person who gets pushed and pushed despite everyone's dislike and hated towards them. The nominees are..

- Mickie James
- Eve
- Gail Kim
- Aksana
- ODB

Not a lot of nominees for this award this year, which is a good thing, I guess. It's more about what the hell has happened to the women's wrestling scene in mainstream wrestling than anything else, though.

..and the winner is..Aksana


I don't know very many people that consider themselves to be fans of Aksana. I know a few people who think she's decent looking, but she wouldn't be their first choice when it comes to the Divas or Knockouts. That's about it, though. I don't know anyone that enjoys her matches in the slightest, and they certainly aren't being wow'ed by her promos and her speaking ability. There really isn't a reason I can think of that she should be given any sort of push, or even time on WWE television, but she continues to appear. Maybe she has pictures of Vince McMahon that she has threatened to post on Twitter or something. That would explain so much.


#Zzzzz

This award goes to the wrestler/personality that thinks they're saying something deep and profound, but the live crowds are bored to tears. It could be someone that has been cutting the same promo all year long, or it could be someone whose promos have just been awful throughout the year. The nominees are..

- Cody Rhodes
- AJ Styles
- Devon
- Alberto Del Rio
- Hulk Hogan
- The Miz
- Sheamus
- James Storm
- Big Show
- Mr. Anderson

A nice mix of WWE and TNA personalities here. Realistically, you could tell me that any of these names would be your choice to win the award, and it wouldn't surprise me at all. Those are the fun award categories to look at. Ones where there might be a "favorite" or two, but any of the nominees could win without it causing too many waves. However, I had to give the award to somebody, and the winner probably shouldn't surprise you if you've been paying any attention to my columns at all.

..and the winner is..The Miz


I really don't understand what people continue to see in him sometimes. As I've mentioned on countless occasions in columns past, I couldn't stand his promo style and all of the stupid faces he would make into the camera. I've often compared it to a child, looking into a mirror and cutting a fake promo into a hair brush, pretending to be a pro wrestler. It's like he never quite grasped the fact that he actually is a wrestler, and just continued to do those make-believe promos. The fact that he made faces like a pre-teen with an underbite only magnified things.

Unfortunately for me, his promos have actually gotten worse since he turned face. Now, he's being saddled with the TV-PG rating, having to refer to Paul Heyman as a "walrus". Let's be perfectly honest, folks.. if John Cena cut a promo where he called Paul Heyman a "walrus", many of you would flip out, saying that Cena is lame, unfunny, and on and on. Don't change your opinion on the insult just because of who is dishing it out. What makes it worse for The Miz is just how forced it's coming across as. When Cena does a goofy promo, you know it's how he is, whether you enjoy the promo or not. He's a goofy guy. When The Miz does a goofy promo, nobody buys it, because he's such a naturally smarmy little bastard. A natural heel. If I had to make a prediction, I'd say that this face run will inevitably fail, and he'll go back to being a heel sooner than later, in another attempt to save his career.


#NobodyCaresB

This one goes to the storyline that nobody cares about at all. It doesn't matter how it began, it doesn't matter where it is, and it doesn't matter where it's going. People just don't care. The nominees are..

- Tensai being.. Tensai
- Natalya has issues with gas
- Madison Rayne loves Earl Hebner
- Bully Ray dating Brooke Hogan
- Claire Lynch
- Vickie Guerrero tries to expose the "affair" between John Cena and AJ Lee
- Aces & 8's
- Jeff Hardy's inner monologue
- Tout

Remember how I talked about the sad state of affairs in the mainstream women's wrestling scene? Well, you'll notice that a lot of 2012's worst storylines and booking decisions were directly related to women. Just a bad year for the women of WWE and TNA, pretty much all around, which is a crying shame. It doesn't take a whole lot of time and effort to make the Divas and Knockouts divisions worthwhile, but neither company seems interested in putting that time and effort forward. If you watched wrestling in 2012, you'd already know who is winning this award.

..and the winner is..Claire Lynch


Not only was the entire Claire Lynch storyline the worst of the entire year, it's going to go down as one of the worst of all-time. It all starts with some of the worst acting ability in the history of the sport. Think about that for a few moments. The woman portraying Claire Lynch couldn't act her way out of a wet paper bag with scissors in her hand. From there, we dipped into the world of impregnating a drug addict, sleeping with your (apparently not so) happily married boss, deception, hidden cameras, abortions and smoking. None of it made any sense, and even the biggest TNA marks hated it and wanted it to stop.

For supposedly being TNA's "golden boy", AJ Styles sure is treated poorly and given some insanely stupid storylines to deal with. You know what would probably make that stop? If AJ even hinted to TNA management that he wanted to jump to WWE, I can just about guarantee that they would start to treat him differently. He wouldn't even have to mean it. He could have zero desire to go to WWE. He would just have to plant the seed in Dixie Carter's head that he might leave, and.. presto.. problem solved. I guess that's a different story for a different day, though.


#Cryin

This goes to the best segment of the year, whether it's an in-ring promo or something that took place back stage. It could be something that left you laughing your asses off, or something that was so magical that you couldn't stop watching. The nominees are..

- Paul Heyman's return
- Mae Young's son at Raw1000
- John Cena bringing the "Doctor Of Thuganomics" back for one night
- Mick Foley trying to convince CM Punk to face John Cena at Hell In A Cell
- Brock Lesnar's return on the night after WrestleMania
- DX reunites at Raw1000
- Brock Lesnar & John Cena brawl, leading to Cena getting busted open
- Daniel Bryan getting Kane a puppy for Christmas
- Austin Aries' "Option C" promo
- John Cena's promo on CM Punk in Montreal
- Team Hell No at Anger Management
- CM Punk fighting Vince McMahon, leading to Ryback making the save

If I really wanted to, I could have kept going, listing segment after segment, but it would have turned into a gigantic clusterfuck of nominees, so I just kept it down to the "top 12", so to speak. As you can see, TNA barely made the cut here, which says a lot about the company. They have a talented roster, and have numerous people that are capable of putting on great matches at any given time. However, when the TNA writers and bookers come into play, everything goes wrong. If Impact was just two hours of wrestling every week, with no promos and no segments, I'd be a huge fan and would watch religiously.

The more I look at the final list of nominees, the more I think I may have sold Daniel Bryan short. If I really wanted to, I probably could come up with an entire list of nominees for this category that are Bryan related in some way or another. That's how his year has been. As it is, though, I think I represented people well with the list, and some very good moments were chosen.

..and the winner is..Brock Lesnar's return on the night after WrestleMania


The most memorable episode of Raw all year long was the night after WrestleMania. The crowd in Miami was absolutely electric that night, but they saved their biggest reaction for the return of Brock Lesnar. There were rumors that he might be returning to the company, but nobody knew for sure. As John Cena stood in the middle of the ring, waiting for a face-to-face with The Rock, the opening guitar riff of Lesnar's entrance music hit, and the crowd.. went.. ballistic. It was just a magical moment, made even better once the crowd began the "holy shit" chants. He hadn't even reached the ring yet. The fans were just so caught up in the moment that they couldn't help but start the chant at the mere sight of the guy in a WWE arena once again.

I get that a lot of the next few months were botched horribly when it comes to Brock Lesnar, but for that one night, everything was about as perfect as a wrestler's return could possibly be.


#Craftmaster

This award goes to the best wrestler of the year. It's about as simple as it gets. These people are the masters of their craft. The nominees are..

- Daniel Bryan
- Johnny Gargano
- Sheamus
- Austin Aries
- CM Punk
- John Cena
- Kevin Steen
- Kofi Kingston
- Bobby Roode
- Randy Orton
- Christopher Daniels
- Dolph Ziggler

As the title implies, this is all about who the best wrestler of the year was. This doesn't have anything to do with who can cut the best promos, or how many titles a person won in a calendar year (or, in Punk's case, how long he held his one title). This is only about those who can step in between the ropes and put on quality matches on a regular basis, no matter the situation and no matter the opponent.

..and the winner is..Daniel Bryan


If you just look at his pay-per-view matches alone, Bryan's year was something special. He started it off by defeating Mark Henry and Big Show in a Steel Cage Match at Royal Rumble that was a lot better than it had any right to be. He went on to successfully defend his World Title in an Elimination Chamber match that was very entertaining. WrestleMania.. next. At Extreme Rules, he lost to Sheamus in a Two-Out-Of-Three Falls Match that many people have placed on their short list of Matches Of The Year. Over The Limit saw another Match Of The Year candidate, with Bryan failing to win the WWE Title from CM Punk. At No Way Out, Bryan was unsuccessful in winning the WWE Title again, but his match against CM Punk and Kane was still very good, continuing his streak. The next month, at Money In The Bank, Bryan was in yet another Match Of The Year candidate, losing to CM Punk again, this time in a No Disqualification Match with AJ Lee as the Special Guest Referee. SummerSlam saw a bit of a step back, but Bryan's match against Kane was fun while it lasted, and was still a perfectly acceptable pay-per-view outing, considering they weren't even given eight minutes to work with. Night Of Champions was something similar, seeing Bryan team up with Kane to win the Tag Team Titles from Kofi Kingston & R-Truth in a short, but fun, match. At Hell In A Cell, Team Hell No lost to Cody Rhodes & Damian Sandow by disqualification, but the match was still fun to watch. Survivor Series came next, and saw Bryan as a part of Team Foley in a traditional five-on-five Survivor Series elimination match that was one of the standout matches of the night. To close out the year, Bryan teamed with Kane and Ryback to take on The Shield in a TLC Match at.. TLC.

That's 12 matches on pay-per-view, seven of which I've personally seen on at least one person's list of Match Of The Year candidates. When you throw in his performances on television, I think it becomes a bit of a no-brainer. CM Punk was well on pace to win this award, as the first half, and even two-thirds, of the year was kinder to him than it was to Bryan, but while Bryan's matches continued to be good, some of Punk's dipped in the latter part of the year, and that was even before he got injured and had to miss the final month because of said injury. Either way, it was quite the year for the two "indy darlings", but I have Daniel Bryan as having the better overall year as far as match quality is concerned.


#!!!

This goes to the match of the year. When you see "!!!" on #BlackTwitter, it's usually for something is just beyond all words, and all you can muster up is a series of exclamation points to express your feelings. In the world of message boards, it's the equivalent of quoting someone's entire post, and just replying with "This." as your response. The nominees are..

- The Undertaker VS Triple H in Hell In A Cell at WrestleMania
- CM Punk VS Chris Jericho in a Street Fight for the WWE Title at Extreme Rules
- Austin Aries VS Bobby Roode for the TNA World Title at Destination X
- John Cena VS Brock Lesnar in an Extreme Rules Match at Extreme Rules
- Ryback, Daniel Bryan & Kane VS The Shield in a TLC Match at Tables, Ladders & Chairs
- James Storm VS Bobby Roode in a Street Fight at Bound For Glory
- CM Punk VS Daniel Bryan in a No Disqualifications Match for the WWE Title at Money In The Bank
- John Cena VS CM Punk for the WWE Title at Night Of Champions
- CM Punk VS Daniel Bryan for the WWE Title at Over The Limit
- Sheamus VS Daniel Bryan in a Two-Out-Of-Three Falls Match for the World Title at Extreme Rules

It was a good year for in-ring action, if you ask me. You didn't ask me, but if you did, that's what I would tell you. On this list alone, you have regular matches, matches that involve cages, matches that involve ladders, matches that involves streets and fighting on those streets.. a nice variety.

However, even after a marathon viewing session, where I watched all ten matches in a row, once a day for five consecutive days (you know, just to make sure that my choice was correct), one match stuck out as my clear choice.

..and the winner is..John Cena VS Brock Lesnar in an Extreme Rules Match at Extreme Rules


In the long, storied history of the wonderful company known as WWE, a match like what we saw between Cena and Lesnar has never happened before, and if I had to venture a guess, I'd say it won't happen again. There have been matches between guys who didn't like each other in "real life", as well as matches between guys who absolutely hated each other in the world of kayfabe. That's a regular thing. However, never has a WWE match turned into a quasi-shoot fight so quickly, with what looked to be pure, unadulterated hatred from Brock Lesnar, who seemed to forget that he had left the UFC. It was just a stiff, stiff brawl from beginning to end. The match was laid together in a near-perfect way, with Lesnar looking like the most unstoppable monster that pro wrestling has ever seen. However, the most impressive part of how that match went is that John Cena did nothing different, but actually won the crowd over. The Chicago crowd. Cena's status quo of being beat up for a while, only to make a comeback, grows tiresome, but in this match, it seemed as real and as necessary as any match we've ever seen from him. He was really out there getting his ass handed to him, and he continued to fight back, which seemed to impress the fans.

I know what some of you are thinking.. Cena winning the match was a travesty. A sham. A mockery. A traveshamockery. It was. I won't deny that. Surprisingly enough, I do knock off points for that ending, but the match is still my choice for Match Of The Year. What does that tell you? It tells me that we'd be looking at an all-time great match if the ending was better. It isn't just that Cena won. Cena should have lost, yes, but a Cena win could have been done a lot better than the "get beat up for 17 straight minutes, hit a move and win the match" direction that they ultimately went in. As it stands, though, we're a good eight months after Extreme Rules, but the match still sticks out in people's minds as if it happened yesterday. That's the sign of a great match.


#FadeGod

This award is the equivalent to a lifetime achievement, and is named after the UFC Middleweight Champion, Anderson Silva, who has made a living off of handing out fades left and right.

For 2012, I decided to give the award to someone who has made a living off of beating the odds, defeating any opponent that is placed in his way and just living a winning life for the last few decades.

..and the winner is..Vince McMahon


Thank you, Vince, for everything that you have done to entertain us, whether it was directly or indirectly. I wouldn't be writing this column right now if it wasn't for you, and every single person reading this column wouldn't be doing so without what you have done. You're a pioneer and a true-blue icon in the history of pro wrestling, and I salute you, good sir.


Well, ladies and gentlemen, there you have it.. the 2012 #BlackTwitter Hussy Awards. I'd like to see who all of you would choose as the winners of each award here. It doesn't matter if you would give the awards to nominees that I chose, or if you have your own "write-in". I just want to see what all of you had to say about the year that was.

Thank you all for a good year, and for all of your continued support. I hope your 2013 is as amazing as you want it to be. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to get back in the lab, because I have more columns to put together. Be on the lookout for several columns coming in the next couple weeks. Hopefully. No promises. Cross your fingers.
