THE WORST MOMENT OF THE YEAR

Daffney’s suicide. The video that preceded it, followed by the suicide its self. I’m not sure how anything else can be worse then this.

If we are talking creatively - The stupid stupid angle between Shayna Baszler and Alexa Bliss where the doll was haunting Shayna Baszler.

WORST MATCH OF THE YEAR
Charlotte vs Nia (on a Raw I cant remember)

WORST WRESTLER (Male)
Omos (not his fault, he’s way overpushed for how green he is)

WORST WRESTLER (Female)
Eva Marie

WORST TAG TEAM
Dirty Dawgs (more so the booking, in ring they are great)

WORST PROMOTION
WWE (on the Raw side. ive enjoyed Smackdown)

WORST FEUD
Bray Wyatt vs Randy Orton (killed the Wyatt character)

WORST EVENT
AEW Revolution
(I’m not the type of wrestling fan who gets angry. After this event I felt ripped off)

WORST ON THE MIC
Eva Marie

WORST GIMMICK
Alexia Bliss’s Bray Wyatt ripoff

WORST BROADCASTER
Byron Saxton

MOST UNDERUTILIZED
Ricochet

WORST SERIES (In-Ring)
Raw

WORST PROMOTIONAL TACTIC
(not sure if you mean the worst tactic by a promotion or the worst tactic when it comes to promoting an event. If I’m answering incorrectly, my apologies.

AEW - Tony Khan Gaslighting and ridiculing a Black Wrestler for standing up for diversity in AEW.

WWE - The ridicules amount of releases this past year, and the wrestlers made to feel like expendable trash.

  • THE WORST MOMENT OF THE YEAR - Job losses/ROH closing

  • WORST MATCH OF THE YEAR - Alexa Bliss versus Randy Orton – Fastlane

  • WORST WRESTLER (Male) - Reggie

  • WORST WRESTLER (Female) - Tamina (been on the main roster for 12 years, still sucks)

  • WORST TAG TEAM - Viking Raiders

  • WORST PROMOTION - NWA (took a step back this year)

  • WORST FEUD - Orton vs Wyatt

  • WORST EVENT - WWE Fastlane

  • WORST ON THE MIC - Seth Rollins

  • WORST GIMMICK - Seth Rollins

  • WORST BROADCASTER - Adnan Virk - by far the worst lead broadcaster in wrestling history

  • MOST UNDERUTILIZED - Ricochet

  • WORST SERIES (In-Ring) - RAW

  • WORST PROMOTIONAL TACTIC - Firing people and citing budget cuts

Would the worst of show work if it was just John and wai or does it need a foursome?

I don’t mind the foursome. It changes the normal dynamic and I think not for the worse.

I think more people is better for this one. Regardless of the hosts, if its just two people it can begin to feel repetitive, especially if they hosts have similar views. With more people it can spark more debate which IMO is good podcasting.

Now I’m specifically talking about year end awards, for regular shows I prefer two hosts.

That’s fair

Felt like there was a but too much of talking over one another this year

Ya, that is the challenge with more then two, the chemistry changes.

They’ve been doing a foursome for these year end awards since back in The LAW days.

So you want a WWE scripted promo? It was just 4 friends shooting the shit and chatting. That tends to be the case a lot of time. Its not…

I go…
You go…
I go…
You go…

Yes

That’s what I want

I was trying not to bash or criticize any individuals.

This was a tough listen for me. Glad others enjoyed it. Plenty of other post content to keep me entertained tho, so no big deal.

  1. THE WORST MOMENT OF THE YEAR – Mass Releases in WWE
  2. WORST MATCH OF THE YEAR – The Fiend vs Randy Orton - WrestleMania 37
  3. WORST WRESTLER (Male) - Trevor Murdoch
  4. WORST WRESTLER (Female) - Nia Jax
  5. WORST TAG TEAM - Miz and Morrison
  6. WORST PROMOTION - NWA
  7. WORST FEUD - Paul Wight vs QT Marshall
  8. WORST EVENT - WWE Summerslam
  9. WORST ON THE MIC - Ricochet
  10. WORST GIMMICK - Master Wato

  14. WORST PROMOTIONAL TACTIC - Using released wrestlers and mentioning them in promos

It was a tough listen. Braden needs to learn how to be more concise, the guy is total cringe to listen to

Next year, I want @cnoevil to be a part of it!

If a guy has been doing podcasts for like 10 years and still has no clue how to be concise then maybe just do something besides podcasting.

Nah I think I like the format they use every year but thanks for playing.

It’s called a worst of show guys, it’s not suppose to be all sunshine and rainbows. It was a fantastic show

Thanks for the recommendation, but would rather it be the four pillars of POST

I think I’d be really cool if they teamed with Agnew and Mouth for the best of and worst of shows like they did for the mania preview. I feel like this is what most of us former Law listeners would prefer.
