WRESTLING COLUMNS

2007 OWW Columnist of the Year


It is our pleasure and privilege to announce the following four columnists have been nominated for the 2007 OWW Columnist of the Year. This has not been an easy task; there have been many great columns submitted over the year, a year in which professional wrestling has endured some of its most testing times. Narrowing the chosen field down to four has been the result of careful consideration and review.

The nominees have displayed a consistently high standard of work throughout the year. All of them have been selected for Main Page consideration several times, and their work has been well-read and well-received by the international wrestling community. It is now up to you, the OWW Forum Community, to cast your vote to decide the winner!
