Nice job on the 2004 awards. I must agree with 99% of them. Although I think you overlooked a few people in different places. Kane should be in most vicious. His 15 consecutive chairshots on Val Venis show that. Also Big Show throwing Angle off the ledge and trashing Torrie's car should see him in this category as well. Top mic skills should include John Cena. Nobody get get the crowd going on the mic like him. Vince McMahon is as controversial as they came. Especially coming out and cancelling the battle royal for the World Title just as its about to start after a week of excitement from wrestling fans everywhere at the prospect of the Game losing the title. Jon Heidenreich is as overrated as they come. This is probably why he keeps running away from Taker Big Show and Kurt Angle should figure in the top fueds on Smackdown because for once it wasn't about a championship between these two. And the Cruiserweight open at WM20 was an awesome sight and deserves a place in the top Smackdown matches. Otherwise nice work on the awards and keep up the good work in 2005..

hi, im a huge fan of ure site and love it alot but the 2004 awards disgraced me let me tell u why:

1st: booker T was not in the top 5 for smackdown why? i dont no he should of been hes the best wrestler in the wwe right now

2nd: spike dudley was not the top CW let alone in the top 5 he shouldnt be classified as a CW hes not even good

3rd: mohammed hassan is not a top 5 contender for best newcomer simply beacause hes only been on the ring like once so you cant realy say hes a good newcomer.

4th: RVD is not underrated if anything he is way to overrated where he is now on smackdown he should stay in that exact place because putting him highr would be an insult to wrestling.

5th: Kevin Nash, now in Australia they dont hav TNA so i dont watch it but since old wwf and wcw days he has been one of the greatest and now just becoz he is old and cant wrestle as good doesnt mean u can say he is over rated He is a true legend in this sport.

6th: Eugene is not inspirational becoz he is a big fake and is not that much of a good wrestler on the other hand Shawn michaels is a definate inspiration to all people and fans.

7th: Bill goldberg is not embarrasing HE is the greatest wrestler 2 be.neva call sum1 embarasing if u cant bak it up and dont come up with a stupid reason because there is none.

8th: this one really shocked me- The Outsiders, the greatest group 2 eva hit sports entertainment and changed the face of wrestling and u call them embarrasing u should be ashamed.

now i really hope u dont feel any less of me i just felt like i needed 2 let it out beeing such a great wrestling fan i hope u can read this e-mail and no that u can make a change 2 all this in 2005 and rememba i do luv ure site and keep up the great work!

I just finished going through the 2004 OWW Awards, and im a bit disappointed with the following winners/nominees:

First off, out of all the overall Bests only ONE WWE Wrestler won something, Trish won best female. I argue this because WWE is the worldwide standard for wrestling, and i think WWE has the absolute best. It just makes no sense to me that C.M. Punk could beat out Benoit for Best Wrestler. Chris Benoit has been in the business nearly 20 years, and he is one of the most respected wrestlers of our time, and 2004 was his best year by far, he was victorious in the main event of WrestleMania XX, the best RAW match of the year. I don't care how good C.M. Punk is, sometimes respect for someone out-weighs everything, and i think Benoit was the best wrestler in the world in 2004. I would like to know how Kane and Chris Jericho ranked ahead of Shawn Michaels in the Best RAW Wrestler Category. I mean maybe, just maybe i can see Kane ranked ahead of Shawn, but not Jericho. Jericho had a pretty popular year, but as far as success goes, he was not all that impressive. Jericho lost at WrestleMania XX, he held the I.C. Title for under a month after winning it at Unforgiven, and everytime he was in the world title hunt everybody knew he was not going to win. As for Shawn Michaels, he was in the main event of WrestleMania XX (which won best RAW match), he had many title matches and main events besides that one, and everytime he was in a title match people thought he had a legitimate chance of winning (unlike Chris Jericho). And by the way he defeated Kane at Unforgiven ONE-ON-ONE. This category made no sense to me as far as the Runners-up goes. SmackDown! Match of the Year was a bit surprising. I don't even think the 2 out of 3 falls between Guerrero and Angle was their best match together. I thought their WrestleMania XX match was more exciting and entertaining, flat-out. I also think the Cage Match between Guerrero and Layfield was better. I don't really understand how Kevin Nash won most overrated when he really didn't do much in 2004, if he was in TNA most of the year then he would deserve that award perhaps i don't think people thought he was anything special this year. I think Jim Ross is still on top of his game as an announcer and deserves to be at least a bit higher than 3rd runner up. And the last negative i have is the Cutest Female Category. There is only 1 WWE Diva in this, WWE has the most beautiful women in all of wrestling, they have always been women that stand out, even before they were in WWE. I don't see a comparison when it comes to WWE Women and all the Indies and TNA women, the WWE Divas easily impress me when it comes to looks a lot more.

Here are the things i really liked about the awards: I agree strongly with Benoit winning RAW Wrestler, Triple H winning Biggest RAW Ego (and i love how he was on the runners-up list 3 TIMES, ha) I basically totally agree with all the matches of the year nominees for RAW. I agree with the SD! Best Wrestler, CruiserWeight, and Female, im not too sure about SD! Tag Team though, but no one else really fits, so the Bashams are an acceptable choice. I agree with best RAW and SD! Feud. Im glad it was HBK vs. HHH even though everyone wants to cry that it has been overdone, the bottom line is that still was the biggest feud on RAW. I whole-heartedly agree that William Regal had the Best Comeback, but i feel he should have been on the runners-up list for Most Inspirational. Shawn Michaels is a great choice for most inspirational because of the continuation of his amazing comeback and his life changes. And finally Gene Snitsky is an acceptable choice for most controversial, although i think JBL was more controversial with what he did earlier in the year overseas and with the whole immigration stuff.

In conclusion, i think this was a good compilation of the best, and some not so. But Big-ups on the awards. And i really enjoyed the column. The site is awesome, OWW had a great 2004. Keep up the good work in 2005!
