Two birds, one stone. Wrestling fans, I’m Tom Robinson. In one post we will be examining the NoDQ.com awards for the Babyface of the year and the heel of the year.

Let’s kick things off with the Babyface of the year…
Babyface Of The Year nominees are….
- Daniel Bryan
- John Cena
- CM Punk
- Chris Jericho
- AJ Styles
- Rob Van Dam
Now in order for me to decide which one of these was the babyface of the year, I have to decide which of these connected with the fans better, which of these got the better reactions and which of these did the best job at evoking the preferred reaction. Same rules apply to the heel of the year as well. And in my opinion, no-one has been more over with the fans than Daniel Bryan and Daniel knew all he had to do to get a reaction was shout “YES!”. As far as I’m concerned, Daniel Bryan wins this by a huge mile.
Winner: Daniel Bryan
Heel Of The Year nominees are….
- Bully Ray
- Triple H
- Dixie Carter
- Brock Lesnar
- Paul Heyman
- Stephanie McMahon
Same rules apply here. Which of these guys did the best job at trying to evoke the reaction they desired and who actually got the best heat out of the six? There are a bunch of great contenders here. Triple H can be a REALLY good heel on his best day, but having just turned heel once more in the summer he still needs to let loose. It feels like he’s holding back by trying to play his corporate role too much. Someone like Paul Heyman knows how to evoke fan reactions. I mean he helped CM Punk A LOT with the means of getting heat. I mean, for someone as popular as CM Punk face or heel, for Heyman to get Punk as much heat as he did was simply incredible. Paul was as incredible a heel this year as he is every other year. For me, Paul Heyman wins.
Winner: Paul Heyman
