Diva Dirt presents its sixth annual Writers’ Choice Awards, as decided by the Diva Dirt team. As we come to the end of 2016, we have picked the best of the best to be awarded our Writers’ Choice trophies.
Best Manager: Catrina
Despite old school heel tactics from Maryse on SmackDown or Dana Brooke‘s effective cheer leading hype man performance on Raw, for the second year in a row it’s Catrina who continues to have the most impact in a year fraught with intriguing change on Lucha Underground! Keeping the Mistress of the Macabre front and center, she started off the year hot as the new proprietor on Lucha Underground.
Though her control of the Temple would be short lived, she ruffled the feathers of everyone within. When the tide turned against her and Mil Muertes, she’d unleash even more power and assert herself as a true puppet master.
She go on to send Ivelisse a message at Ultima Lucha Dos and briefly make her in-ring debut. “Death comes for everyone, even you bitch!” she’d exclaim.
At the top of Season 3 she’d become even more confident, accepting a future match with The Baddest Bitch in the Temple.
She’d also vow to rebuild Mil’s legacy, showing off more of her mysterious power by absorbing the souls of the fallen so he could become stronger.

She’d once again lead him to victory but soon become his downfall when another curious man from her past would reemerge. Though her heart belongs to another, she’d continue to be a formidable presence in a budding triangle between Mil and another man. She brought Jeremiah Crane back to life in the past, but for what end?
It’s a rare thing in the wrestling world to see a woman with so much power. Catrina embodies every sense of the word and her domination and enigmatic presence show no signs of stopping. What other secrets does she hold, what other special abilities does she possess? Could we see her as a future title contender? Catrina steals the spotlight everywhere she goes, she is part of the darkness that holds this world together. She is mighty and fierce, 2017 watch out, she is on her way of conquering that too!
Stay tuned for more Writers’ Choice Award reveals throughout the day.
