Next Category: Mainstream Match of the Year

  • Darryl lee

    Why are mickie and Alicia beating Emma and Becky on the poll. I like mickie, but her time has come and gone.

    • A One of a Kind Collectible

      Maybe because every male Veteran gets treated like an untouchable god. Whereas Mickie a female veteran had to lose to a slap

    • KatyaMenelli

      Because Emma and Becky didn’t have to lose to slaps in a Championship Match in the Main Event of RAW.

  • Winter

    I’m pretty sure ALL the Naomi fans in the world are on this site LOL

    • IceBaby7

      indeed :(

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      I swear other than this site I never heard of ppl really caring about Naomi all that much.

      • Winter

        You’re right, I don’t hate Naomi at all but she’s so overhyped in this site, it’s funny.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          She really is… VERY overrated and overhyped here.

          • A One of a Kind Collectible

            I looooveee Naomi. And I’m scared to ever disagree with anything on this site because even if you say the tiniest thing negative about her, be it her attire or match. You get attacked. Yes she deserved best babyface and best moment. But best gimmick… that was a joke and Rosemary was robbed!

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Same with Sasha Banks LOL

          • Winter

            LOOOL you hate Sasha so much!!!

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Lol I don’t hate her, just feel like she’s overrated?????

          • Winter

            No more than Charlotte… ooops

          • #FlairfortheGold

            LOL I mean Charlotte took a brake from the spotlight, something Boss can’t seem to do… but yea, Charlotte is overexposed

          • Winter

            Overrated and overexposed are two different things

          • Tina

            It’s Sasha’s fault she can’t “take a break from the spotlight” ? Why would she want to? If Sasha is overrated so is Charlotte, which neither of them are

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Because she’s being overexposed and her fans begin to think she’s the greatest thing to ever happen to Women’s wrestling. Unlike @Winter, I do give Banks credit for being one of the best at her craft, but the way ppl on this site make her seem like a god given gift who is responsible for the entire evolution, which is 1) wrong 2) annoying

          • Winter

            You hate me for some reason :(

          • #FlairfortheGold

            No, but we have distinct ways of thinking and it’s clear that you like hyping Sasha at the expense of others, which is 1) wrong and 2) annoying

          • Winter

            LOL at least you’re funny to talk.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            You too lol??

          • Tina

            Well, I’ve never heard anyone on this site give 100% credit to Sasha for the evolution (that’s ridiculous.) And honestly who cares? Everyone’s aloud to have their favorites lol. I do think Sasha is the best women’s wrestler in the company, and others will say Charlotte is, Asuka is,-and that’s all okay. It’s really not that serious

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Hahaha then you probably haven’t been here that long. But I mean you’re right. To each their own

          • Tina

            No, I’ve been a reader here for years lol. Just never saw anyone claim that. But yes, to each their own?

          • Jaded

            Please remove Charlotte, the girl couldn’t even carry Nia to a decent match.
            Sasha, asuka or Natalya ,those are unarguably the best female wrestlers in the company.

          • Tina

            That’s exactly my point, everyone will have their favorites and opinions on who’s the best. To me, Natalya is utterly boring to watch 90% of the time and I prefer Charlotte over her 100x. It’s all good lol

          • Makay

            Boring? Wwe literally destroyed everything about her! She wouldn’t be like this if they treated her like they’ve done to the 4 horseW and Alexa. honestly she would been a big thing now its just sad

          • Tina

            Possibly, but I’ve just never been able to get into her matches.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Girl don’t be scared fck them if they wanna get mad it’s because they know their favs are really trash.

          • jefezito12

            Coming from Fan Flair!! ? B please. The most overhyped and overrated.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            People down talk her at every moment… She’s better than most of the women on the roster so overrated and overhyped? Nah she gets the credit she deserves.

          • jefezito12

            Other women are as good as charlotte but sadly there not flair. Most girls deserve credit too ?

          • Winter

            Charlotte is a very good wrestler but WWE has given everything to her since her arrival on the main roster.

        • NOT Released Emma

          How is Naomi over hyped?

        • Xaos

          Says a Sasha Banks fan

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Ooop…?

          • Winter

            To be fair Sasha was over hyped on this site for a time but now I barely see those old Sasha fans, they let me alone :(

          • Mary

            Google is paying 97$ per hour,with weekly payouts.You can also avail this.
            On tuesday I got a great New Land Rover Range Rover from having earned $11752 this last four weeks..with-out any doubt it’s the most-comfortable job I have ever done .. It sounds unbelievable but you wont forgive yourself if you don’t check it

        • #FlairfortheGold

          Lol it’s funny because it seems like all Banks fans are here as well. When I visit other sites, Sasha is referred to as “Botch Banks” or Botch machine. Heart breaking but I mean, it’s like Naomi… most to all her fans are here

          • Winter

            LOL you can’t compare Sasha’s popularity with Naomi’s popularity.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            I’m not comparing their popularity. All I said was that it seems as both their fans are here because on other sites, they seem to like to bash them, one more than the other. Don’t believe me, go look at the post of Paige’s recent injury

          • Winter

            I know that girl but I’m saying that Sasha has a lot of fans all over the world, she’s practically the most popular women of all the roster. Naomi has a solid fanbase but not as big as Sasha.

          • Slayomi

            You’d think someone so popular could hold a title for more than 28 days

          • Jaded

            At least they have fans here, Charlotte doesn’t have fans anywhere anymore, she’s been overtaken by two way hotter blondes, Alexa and Mandy.

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Hi Jaded!!

        • C Mack

          Overhyped here? More like underappreciated everywhere else?

      • Omar Zaal

        Same goes for Alicia Fox

      • KatyaMenelli

        There aren’t many wrestling sites dominated by women on the web.

      • Slayomi

        It’s you and two other Charlotte stans in the wrestling community, so what are you saying?

    • NOT Released Emma

      Yep I’m on here I’m a Naomi fan.

    • KatyaMenelli

      Look at SD in the crowd then. Even when she was injured, she was still one of the top merch sellers on SD. Try again.

    • As if she doesn’t get the biggest reaction every week. NEXT

    • MyleneCruz

      Yal dirty dogs will never give my girl Naomi her props. She is doing her ting! And you and the others will stay salty cause she ain’t going nowhere and will be champ again!.

  • Chargod Flair #5x

    Yeah this is ugly… flop. Next.

  • A One of a Kind Collectible

    Pretty solid choices all around I’d say.
    The only ones I have an issue with are

    WTF and gimmick. I mean common, is Emma getting released really as shocking as the first women’s money in the bank being won by a MAN SMH.

    And whilst I love Naomi, and her glow gimmick has done her wonders. No one is more committed to her gimmick than Rosemary shame to see her lose that one

    • Tina

      Exactly, the WTF moment should’ve gone to Ellsworth, people were raging, including me lol.

      • A One of a Kind Collectible

        Like I got over Emma’s release in about an hour. However I am still angry that a MAN won the first WOMEN’S MINTB.
        And you just know for a fact, every time they wanna show footage for history books, they’ll show the match that aired on Smackdown so it looks like it never happened.

        • Tina

          Yes, it still makes me mad to even know that a man was the deciding factor. I honestly didn’t see Emma going anywhere at that point anyways

          • A One of a Kind Collectible

            Ugh still angry sis at least someone understands

  • Juan

    And once again Rosemary is robbed of the best gimmick award!! WTF!!? Her gimmick is easily the best one!!

    So how did Naomi win?

    • Malcolm James

      Damn Shame

    • Ryomi Minaj

      Because it’s fan voted, it’s really not that serious ma

    • jefezito12

      Because Naomi is the best! ???

    • KatyaMenelli

      Because she single-handedly had to build her gimmick from the ground up and was just coming back from injury in which prior she was a heel. Rosemary already had a group she came from.

      • Malcolm James

        But her gimmick now is completely different from her Decay gimmick

        • KatyaMenelli

          Lol not at all.

          • Malcolm James

            Yes it is she a motherly figure now

          • KatyaMenelli

            But she still uses the phrases and references to when she was in Decay. The only difference I see is she’s a face now. However, I do love Rosemary’s gimmick regardless.

      • Dark Heel

        Rosemary built her gimmick ground up toom, Naomi won because she’s black.

    • SweeneyTodd

      Because fans are stupid

    • Slayomi

      Because she 10x more popular than that flop Rosemary

      • Juan

        That’s hilarious! I’m sure you’re not biased in any way with that username… Man, Naomi fans are a delusional bunch huh?

        • KatyaMenelli

          You couldn’t detect the sarcasm in this comment? Really?

    • chrissi calvert

      Because people are sheep and tend to lean more towards WWE than they do other promotions as its more mainstream. No disrespect to Naomi but Rosemary has the better gimmick.

  • Chargod Flair #5x

    Naomi as best gimmick?? Haha… no. Laurel Van Ness and Rosemary had FAR better gimmicks than a dancing clown act. Also, how are Ember vs Asuka getting best feud? They had a good match at Brooklyn… but best feud is pushing it because NXT was so stale and boring back then. Alexa vs Sasha had feud of the year!!! People are pretty stupid. Only one I’m happy with is Mickie getting most underrated.

    • NOT Released Emma

      It’s not that serious

    • LIQUORICE

      It’s really not that deep sis

      • Chargod Flair #5x

        Who said it was? It’s my opinion

        • LIQUORICE

          Calm yourself sweetie

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            There’s the exit?

          • LIQUORICE

            Good, escort yourself out then……

          • Chargod Flair #5x
          • Omar Zaal

            I like your sassyness.

          • Chargod Flair #5x
          • Ryomi Minaj

            A gay

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            A trash

          • Ryomi Minaj

            Your moms pwussy

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            A homophobe but is gay itself?

          • Ryomi Minaj

            I’m not homophobic I just know a fellow LGBT member when I see one, hey sis

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Hey sus

          • Ryomi Minaj

            Whats tea girl?

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            You know Naomi a flop?

          • KatyaMenelli

            Better than Alexa. Can’t really complain.

          • Ryomi Minaj

            She isn’t, you know Charlottes a male?

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            She is? Why Naomi sound like a little boy then?

    • KatyaMenelli

      Dancing clown act? I wanna say that sounds racist af but idk…

      Anyways, you realize that the Glow gimmick is more than just dancing. It’s about being yourself and embracing yourself in any and every light of the day. You would know that if you had a brain and actually looked at SD this year.

      • Chargod Flair #5x

        Still a clown… NEXT

        • KatyaMenelli

          And still best gimmick of 2017… NEXT

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Still a flop

          • KatyaMenelli

            Like Alexa

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Nope like Naomi

          • KatyaMenelli

            No like Alexa. The definition of flop. Just watch her performance from a few hours ago. She flopped her body over hella times to avoid being hit.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Alexa still champ unlike that clown and can defend her title against more people than Lana. Her match with Asuka was good too dumbass. A definition of a flop is literally Naomi… so like I said NEXT.

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        I don’t think it’s racist, I think it’s an ignorant comment based off racism, considering it’s from “Chargod Flair”. Aleister Black could have a dancing gimmick and he’d never call his gimmick a dancing clown act.

        • KatyaMenelli

          That’s my point. If racism has to be brought up in the comment, whether based on ignorance or not, racism isn’t very far.

  • K. W. M.

    Peyton winning three times! So cool…i mean iconic :)

  • NOT Released Emma

    Bianca BelAir won best newcomer? Lol she’s not that good in the ring.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      the nominees for that category and most of the other’s as well are trash.. where’s Ruby Riott in that one?

      • NOT Released Emma

        She was part of the best group or tag team.
        Maybe next year.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          Imo ruby should have been in best newcomer.

          • NOT Released Emma

            True. I don’t get the hype behind Bianca BelAir.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            I think she’s impressive at times but she’s never cut a promo at all. We haven’t seen enough from her.

          • NOT Released Emma

            Ugh I don’t even want to hear her on the mic.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Tbh

  • LIQUORICE

    God this site is so negative -_- Happy that Naomi got 3 awards ? so I’m happy

    • KatyaMenelli

      I know right. They will find something to be mad at.

    • ssilva872

      I know I was glad she got what she deserved.

  • A One of a Kind Collectible

    Ah well at least we have Bianca vs Ember to look forward to in 2018. Unless Bayley’s evil twin sister gets the title first …

  • Pwuntahs

    This is a popularity contest tbh.

    • NOT Released Emma

      How?

      • Pwuntahs

        Are you telling Naomi has a better gimmick than Rosemary?

        • NOT Released Emma

          Don’t change the subject.
          Why do you think that the DD Awards is based on popularity?

          • Tina

            That was her point tho, there’s more Naomi fans on here than Rosemary, so Naomi took the win because of it.

        • KatyaMenelli

          Nope. Just saying that She had best gimmick of 2017. That’s all. Overall, Rosemary has the best Gimmick but as far as 2017, Naomi takes the cake.

        • Slayomi

          I’m telling you she does

          • Juan

            No she doesn’t. Naomi fans are just blind

    • A One of a Kind Collectible

      Well yeah, it’s a fan voting contest. Whoever has more fans will always win. Sad but true, everyone is biased to their fave

      • #FlairfortheGold

        But the fact that Sasha didn’t win means that ppl finally voted justly

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          Sasha wasn’t winning all that much in past years as well.

        • Malcolm James

          Voted is not justify when Rosemary got robbed

        • A One of a Kind Collectible

          I wouldn’t say it’s just, because tbh 2017 was a pretty boring year for Sasha, compared to 2016. Other girls outshines her this year and the votes reflect this

          • #FlairfortheGold

            Exactly. If it were solely a popularity contest, Banks would have won every category, given as how all her fans seem to be here

        • Mr. What

          It not because Naomi fans was full force voting anything Naomi. Won best gimmick?? It should of been Rosemary.

          • KatyaMenelli

            Rosemary should’ve won last year. Naomi did have best gimmick of 2017 imo.

  • NOT Released Emma

    I’m happy Naomi won she deserves it. Charlotte didn’t win always next year. Mandy Rose is the one to watch for this year.
    Maryse outfits was ok but nothing major. Naomi should’ve won that award.

  • Malcolm James
    • A?.

      You just pick the Iconic Duo and don’t vote for them, easy

  • NOT Released Emma

    Did they have the best TNA knockout?

    • Malcolm James

      No ?

      • NOT Released Emma

        I thought they usually do in these awards.

        • Malcolm James

          Me 2

    • A One of a Kind Collectible

      It would have been Gail anyway

      • Chargod Flair #5x

        Another one that overrated af.

        • A One of a Kind Collectible

          Okay sis, I agreed with you on your point below… but you come for Queen Gail and you’ve gone to far!

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Sorry not sorry. She’s not special in the slightest.. there’s a reason why she was a flop in WWE.

          • Malcolm James

            Because WWE has a habit of booking talented wrestlers badly

          • NOT Released Emma

            She lost almost every match she was in.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Yes but Gail had no mic ability and was NEVER able to get over.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Yes but Gail had no mic ability and was NEVER able to get over. Even in TNA she was a basic heel. I used to like her but it’s like everyone decided one day they wanted to be a Gail stan so I kinda stepped away because she really ain’t as special as some people try to make her. Her in-ring ability is decent nothing groundbreaking at all.

          • NOT Released Emma

            Tbh when she returned to WWE it wasn’t that great.

      • NOT Released Emma

        True. I’m a fan of Gail myself.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      They’re all independent workers for the most part so it could have fallen under that category.

    • Juan

      I would have voted for Rosemary. She is definitely the top KO now that Gail is gone.

  • #FlairfortheGold

    Imagine if there was a category for Worse Promo Cutter….https://m.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=153&v=f1zteM8wD5o

    • Malcolm James

      Pamela being Pamela

      • #FlairfortheGold

        ????

    • Jo9834

      Omg what was Bayley thinking LOL she truly is the worst with promo’s, its cute but sad at the same time.

      • ssilva872

        I love Lita so no shade but when she is telling you take two during a promo you know you f*cked up..

    • ssilva872

      OMG that guy was so mean to Pamela! ?

  • Seraphina Rosenhart

    The Iconic Duo deserved the Best Tag Team Award! <3 So happy for them.

  • Seraphina Rosenhart

    I’m honestly surprised that Zelina Vega won Best Manager over Maryse. I’m not upset though. They both are amazing managers.

  • Seraphina Rosenhart

    I love that Naomi won Best Babyface but I was really surprised to see her win Best Gimmick. I like her Glow gimmick but it’s not the very best gimmick imo.

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    So judging by these polls Charlotte Flair is better than Gail Kim, Io Shirai and Sasha Banks?…

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      And could be above Asuka too buuuut ???

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        She’s not better than either of them but nice try.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          Definitely trasha

          • Tina

            I feel like you’re a little kid that thinks Charlotte and Sasha actually have a real life rivalry? Chilllll outtt girl always trashing somebody

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            I’m trolling a bit

          • Tina

            I was wondering if that was the case. ?

  • Crazy. #RIPMae

    What even is Alexa Bliss’ gimmick? I’m still confused at this point.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      What is Naomi’s? a dancing clown? Oh we knew that.

      • 3???????

        What’s Charlotte gimmick ? A tranny ?

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          No that’s your dad’s ????? and Naomi ugly af looking more like a man than Char, b*tch.

          • 3???????

            Oh ur maaaaaaaad

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Idc ur rude and have told ppl to kill themselves before and get away with it

          • 3???????

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            I know your racist ? ain’t talking. You’ve got away with a lot of ? here and yet you’re still here

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Omg mmkay having a different opinion than someone isn’t racist bye

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            You got caught in your racist act a long time ago. You’re trash.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            By who? Any other lies i’m not aware of?

          • Ryomi Minaj

            Yes, she does.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            ???

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          And that’s a lie she don’t sell more merch than the bellas

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          And that’s a lie she don’t sell more merch than the bella twins. Annnd i’m not sure if she even sells more than Becky or Char… where do you find that out? Or do you pull THAT out your *ss too?

        • SweeneyTodd

          That’s a lie. Bellas, Becky, Charlotte and even Carmella sell more merch

          • Robann

            Carmella?….

            I may be wrong, but no lol.

  • #RiotWithRuby

    It still irks me that both Peyton and Allie were in the Most Improved category when those two have more experience than the other women have combined.

    My vote went to Tamina, who was the real winner if we’re being honest.

    • Thiss

    • K. W. M.

      What has years of wrestling to do with your talent? Peyton may have started with 16 but she barely had chance to improve or do it in a really professional way before coming to america. She developed much more in the last two years than in her entire career before. When you want to pick Tamina it even gets more funny. How long is she on the main roster? And still can’t wrestle btw. It is the most improved category and Peyton improved tremendously. So rightful winner.

      • #RiotWithRuby

        Gurl you need to chill. I am not coming for Peyton, I’m actually giving her praise.

        • K. W. M.

          I know you are not coming for her. But i don’t understand why people say she can’t win this category only because she started 8 years ago? Her biggest development was now and so it should be allowed to reward this. Her years in Australia she barely had chances to develop. It doesn’t come automatically. But the the last year she made the biggest steps ever. So i don’t know what that has to do with her starting so early :/

    • Danny?

      The way I see it most improved is to do with the overall package and this year Peytpn improved in all areas. Her popularity, ring work, gear & character work have really improved so in that sense I believe she deserved it. I do love Tamika though and she has shown out many times this year.

  • Bruno Santos

    2017 was Naomi’s year.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      It was Alexa’s tbh.

      • Robann

        It was both of theirs tbh.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          But moreso Alexa’s she dominated SD and then she went to Raw and dominated there too.

    • KatyaMenelli

      Sure was.

      • Like Mike

        Yeah her Wrestlemania moment was a highlight for the whole year for me, then they followed it up by giving her random matches with Lana… then lost it to Nattie who had very little build.

  • Yuugi Orichalcos Motou

    Naomi over Rosemary and The Goddess for best gimmick? Ugh. All flash and no substance.

    • KatyaMenelli

      Yes, she beat two people. One of which has NO Gimmick at all and the other came out of a group and never had to work as hard as Naomi to get herself back over because the group had a cult following. And it clearly says best gimmick OF 2017.

    • NOT Released Emma

      Naomi deserves that award.

      • Juan

        No she doesn’t. Rosemary has a way better gimmick

        • NOT Released Emma

          Lol nope

  • Omar Zaal

    Wow
    surprised Alicia Fox didn’t get an award.

  • KatyaMenelli

    Lol people mad that Naomi is winning. What else is new?

    • Malcolm James

      I have no problem with Noami winning but come on Rosemary was robbed for best gimmick

      • KatyaMenelli

        Yes overall. But it said best gimmick of 2017. Naomi rightfully took the win. It was her year and her gimmick is a main cause of that.

        • Malcolm James

          I understand and I do agree it was her year and she truly deserve best moment and Babyface of the year but i still believe Rosemary was robbed for best gimmick

          • KatyaMenelli

            To each of their own. I disagree but that’s okay.

      • Ryomi Minaj

        She wasn’t, it is what it is, don’t like it suck a d!ck, it’s really not that serious

        • Malcolm James

          But you the one tell someone to suck a d**k because they have a different opinion
          child you need to calm down it’s not that serious

          • Ryomi Minaj

            Oh

      • Omar Zaal

        It depends how cultured are you. I’m sure if there was more goths/punks Diva Dirt readers. Rosemary would’ve won.

        • Joseph

          Having crazy face paint and spitting out Mist isn’t a Goth/Punk thing.

          • Omar Zaal

            Still they would vote for Rosemary, she’s more closer to that scene than Naomi.

  • Ryomi Minaj

    Naomi won because 1. She came up with feel the glow all on her own and 2. Her fans voted, obviously the ones who are upset didn’t vote enough

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      “Vote enough”??? Yeah most of the naomi fans here really be having no life and make 20 fake accts for her anyway. Same with Sasha fans. Y’all all are trash.

      • Ryomi Minaj

        Awww, you’re so upset, go suck some peen queen, you’ll feel better

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          Lol not really Char wins irl. diva dirt a trash *ss dying site anyway infested with delusional b*tches.

          • Ryomi Minaj

            You still come on because?

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Like I said go back to your toxic hell hole. Why do you come on?

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Don’t you have a Mickie account here to upvote your own comments? Seems to me you’re the one with no life.

  • KatyaMenelli

    I like how everyone is complaining about Naomi winning best gimmick(even though It was justifiable), but then ignore Alexa beat out Allie and Nia Jax for most improved wrestler ??? I can never figure you idiots out.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      She’s done the opposite of improve, she was better in NXT lol

      • KatyaMenelli

        OMG Right? I used to love Alexa in NXT.

    • NOT Released Emma

      Naomi’s gimmick is the best.

  • Wrestling.fan.from.France

    Lol at some people being mad for such a list… Not a big deal tbh. With that being said, not sure about Mickie being underrated. I don’t think like she is at all, we all know how good she is, it’s just that they don’t use her.

    • Tina

      Thisss. She’s not underrated, we all hear the complaints throughout this site about her being good and their mismanagement of her lol

  • Morris Muffin

    At least Alexa won best heel (^_^)

  • Gail-Rollins Fan

    I love Charlotte, and Sasha is really good too but neither of them are on Gail’s level yet, sorry..

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Other than a litacanrana what can Gail do high risk?

      • Crazy. #RIPMae

        Other than a moonsault what can Charlotte do high risk?

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          Diving moonsault, Corkscrew moonsault, powerbombs onto tables I might add. What can Naomi do? Break her neck from botching? We know.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            A powerbomb isn’t going high risk. And thanks for proving my point that Charlotte can’t do anything high risk but moonsaults.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            Powerbombs are highrisk through tables. She did that top rope hurricanrana with sasha at Summerslam.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            Sasha did that top rope hurricanrana at SummerSlam. Kudos to Charlotte for actually selling the move but Sasha was the one who actually did the move.

          • Chargod Flair #5x

            She’s still able to sell it imo if it’s high risk then it counts.

          • NOT Released Emma

            All the females botch from time to time.

        • Gail-Rollins Fan

          Glad that troll deleted her comments before I had a chance to reply. Gail has the most versatile move set of any women’s wrestler in the history of this business. Don’t even come at me with some “she only has one move” bull crap.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            omg I think he was banned

    • Joseph

      LOL Gail is Overrated she never had a 4 plus star match ever.

      • Gail-Rollins Fan

        LMFAO nice try sweetie

        • Joseph

          How? Its the truth Compare Gail top rate matches to Sasha.

          Gail

          https://www.cagematch.net//?id=2&nr=1078&page=10&sortby=colMeltzer&sorttype=DESC

          Sasha

          https://www.cagematch.net//?id=2&nr=10962&page=10&sortby=colMeltzer&sorttype=DESC

          Sasha has 6 4 Star matches and 2 4 plus star matches.

          Gail has 6 3 and a half star matches.

          • Gail-Rollins Fan

            You do realize that those are all based off of Dave Meltzers personal opinions right? It’s also stated that matches may be judged on a different scale according to which time period they’ve happened in.

            Anyone who thinks most of Alexa’s current matches are on the same level as some of the great matches from the golden era of the Knockouts either 1. Shouldn’t be judging matches OR 2. Has a huge bias against TNA.

          • Joseph

            How dare you disrespect our Lord and Savior Dave Meltzer. Who said anything about Alexa?

  • Alicia deserved most underrated and Nattie vs Nikki best feud. Otherwise great choices.

    • Gail-Rollins Fan

      I guess it depends on how people voted. Mickie could be considered underrated (or more so underused) by management where as Foxy is more underrated as far as wrestling fans go.

      • Yeah that was most likely it, people always confuse the two.

    • #VindictiveBitch

      She has won it for like 8 years lol

      • It still applies

      • Like Mike

        LMAO I love my Foxy baby but that’s sad she’s always in the running for underrated.

    • Chargod Flair #5x

      Alicia isn’t underrated she’s not good enough to be.

      • We know you dislike black women. Next please.

        • Chargod Flair #5x

          No I don’t sit there and overhype people based on skin color. Next please.

          • I said next.

          • Crazy. #RIPMae

            “Alicia isn’t underrated she’s not good enough to be.”
            Like what is this? How could you possibly sit there and type that?

  • #SimplyJaomi!# 02/12/17

    Lol people mad about Naomi winning best gimmick.. it was the best gimmick of 2017. End of story. Impact is a sinking ship anyway so who was really checking for Rosemary? Deal with it and move on

    • Juan

      Why are Naomi fans so petty and annoying… Obviously Rosemary has a far more entertaining and creative gimmick but of course she lost since this site is home to Naomi’s fanbase (not a Naomi fan in sight on other forums).

      • Jes Lennox

        Who is Rosemary? The question most people will ask. You can’t get mad if the majority of people have no idea who you are talking about. Tell her fans to vote.

      • Robann

        If we’re going to be completely honest, most people don’t know who Rosemary is. They just don’t. You can’t get mad at that. She would’ve won if more people voted for her and since they don’t know who she is, they didn’t. They DO know who Naomi is, however.

        And another thing, stop generalizing all of her fans. We don’t turn around and say all of Rosemary fans are delusional smarky indie fan boys, so don’t do that.

  • A?.

    I agree with most of the winners, but feud of the year Asuka vs Ember? I mean it’s y’all opinion of course but imo Natalya vs Nikki was just fantastic, the storyline was great and so were the matches. Also glad the Iconic Duo won best tag team!

  • LIGHTSOUT | @MFckinLightsOut

    Y’all brought petty and childish to a new level, jfc

  • Watchyaman

    Ummm people are literally bashing naomi for her looks and skin color if that isn’t a ban idk what is what miserable person could have such hatred for someone they never meant im disgusted

  • Brittany Smith

    Dear lord I knew the comments would be a mess but I wasn’t ready for the dragging I’m seeing

  • KrizalidNEST#MichaelColeBayBay

    Toni Storm??? the queen of the indies

    I think Allie is a better face, but Naomi is OK

    Ember vs Asuka is the best feud?? Really??? The match was awesome but the storyline was weak

    And finally, I will continue betting on Mandy Rose as the 2018 breakout star

  • Danny?

    Although not everyone I thought should have won did I can see why they were voted for. This year belonged to Naomi & Alexa whether you all like it or not it’s the truth.

    Best feud I think was Alexa VS Mickie because all though the story was simple it was delivered fabulously through amazing promos from both women and in the end gave Alexa one of her best matches at TLC. Asuka VS Ember had a great match but the story was weak.

    Asuka is a highly skilled wrestler but I believe that award should have went to Gail but I’m not mad that Asuka won. Also I’m sorry but Charlotte & Sasha are phenomenal but they are not at Gail Kim’s level yet.

  • Synn666

    I would be more concerned if this was not the fan portion of the voting which put this as nothing but a popularity contest so it is what it is.

    BUT Ember and Asuka for best feud lol not even close.

    Melissa Santos had a wayyyyyyyyy better feud over in LU with her and Fenix Vs Marty and Mariposa and that was a feud that had stretched as far back as season 1 and had a wayyy better ending.

    Hell of far as feud of the year pretty much all the LU women should run the board on that one since all their stories and feuds blow the other nominees out of the damn water.

    And then Zelina over Catrina for best Manager….pffffff nope just nope lol

  • #VindictiveBitch

    Lmao people so mad about Fan voted results.

  • #VindictiveBitch

    I see Peyton, Bianca, Alexa and Naomi were the popular ones this year

  • This was fan voted awards people calm down lmao

  • #VindictiveBitch

    I love the iconic duo but they are basically jobbers and people still act like they are booked like Asuka. Hope the booking for them is better in 2018

  • #VindictiveBitch

    The 10 Indy and TNA fans that voted are so pressed

    • Malcolm James

      Because quality wrestlers are not getting respect they deserve

  • Slayomi

    Awww, y’all mad flopmary didn’t win best gimmick? Too bad, maybe if she had more than 5 fans then she would be able to win some type of award. Don’t be mad at the results, be mad at the fact that your fav isn’t that popular :)

  • FreedomKME

    Who the hell is Jinny?

  • Robann

    Naomi winning best Baby face this year is obvious. If the reactions she gets doesn’t convince y’all idk what will and at that point you really are just hating. I really try not to use that word because it truly it overused, but thats the only other thing i can think of. Gimmick wise she deserved it as well because it’s original, she actually EXPLAINED on multiple occasions what it meant and some of y’all are still acting confused, and people OBVIOUSLY voted her for a reason. If you don’t necessarily agree with it fine, but let’s not lie please?

    And DD team are you guys really paying attention to the comment section? I understand free speech but there’s literal transphobia and racism and slander happening EVERY SINGLE TIME NAOMI AND CHARLOTTE ARE MENTIONED. Come on now….give some warnings out or something smh.

    All in all whether y’all like it or not, 2016 was Charlottes year and 2017 was Naomis and Alexas. PERIOD.

      I’ve only ever bought two shirts. One was Dolph Ziggler (which I now regret after he basically endorsed Ann Cunter) and the other was Cody Rhodes. I never bought Gail’s shirt because it was ugly. I’ll buy a Seth shirt if they ever put his face on it lol
