G’day LOP and welcome to the annual LOP In Ring End of Year Awards for 2019 and this year also celebrating the end of the decade!
Before you vote please be aware the creation of AEW and move of NXT to Fox have led to some changes in the categories. Please ensure you read the blurb at the start before you submit your vote.
To vote, just follow the big red VOTE HERE link below to the survey where you can make your selections.
Feel free to debate your picks in the comments below or if you have strong feelings why not write your own end of year wrap in the LOP Columns Forum. When I post the results I’ll be putting a link to every single end of year article on the site so it could be your chance to get featured. If you aren’t already signed up you can find the forums here.
If you have any suggestions for new categories you’d like to see in next year’s survey please leave them in the comments or contact me directly on Twitter @Sir_Samuel.
Also a big thanks to Tim Rose (@TimRoseTweeting) for the spiffy graphic and Mizfan (@SpectralGent) from the LOP Global Revolution Podcast for nominating some wrestlers and matches for the Global/Indy section outside of my own wrestling viewing.
The voting will close on the 3rd of January and results will be posted soon after. So without further ado please click the link below and get voting.
