  • Togg changed the title to DOTY Nomination 2023 [NOW OPEN]
  • Togg unlocked this topic

Alright, it took some time to put this all together. I nominated the things that came to my mind in each category first and also things from my diaries. I didn't nominate for all the categories and I only nominated C-Verse diaries. I wrote a real world diary but I've read much less Real World than C-Verse, so I though it wouldn't be fair enough.

I also want to use this post to invite everyone to predict in my LAP diary that is celebrating its second season finale event Lucha Fest II.

 

New Diary Writer
@newbiezness  This is the first category in which I'm going to self-nominate. I started writing diaries in January 2023. Three of them Global Entertainment Wrestling, AEW 2019: FROM THE BEGINNING and LAP - Lucha America Productions have won DOTM awards in different categories. My other diary Continental Wrestling Alliance: The New CWA had a strong start in my opinion but it didn't have such a good development. I think I've improved my writing skills over the last year by learning from my mistakes and from other writers but I think I still have a lot more to learn.

Outstanding Contribution
@John Lions I think he has contributed to different diaries with his fantastic graphics and has elevated them and that's the reason why his name comes to my mind when I think about what an outstanding contribution means.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Best Diary Not to Win
White Canvas Grappling by @CGN91

I have just read this diary from time to time as I find the Japanese C-Verse very deep and it still doesn't attract me 100%, but this diary has always made a good impression on me and I think it would be a very strong candidate for this award. Also Unai Emery is having a hell of a season in the Premier League.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most Shocking Signing
Vortex in SZW - Sidney Zone Wrestling by @HiPlus

It was one of the things that made me start reading this diary. Vortex's debut was hyped with multiple video messages and his presence was always portrayed as something unique, specially during the first months. I also liked Vortex but I wasn't sure about what he could do in SZW and it was great how it went down.

Most Shocking Championship Win
Sunburst wins the People's Championship in LAP - Lucha America Productions by @newbiezness

Sunburst was in the right place at the right time. Xavi Ferrera was the FCW People's champion (which later became LAP People's title) and I was booking him strongly. Ferrara had beaten Sunburst at LAP x FCW Forbidden Gate 2021 so I booked a rematch for LAP x FCW The Fight For Contracts 2021, where the losers had to leave the company. I had offered contracts to the FCW that I wanted to keep and Ferrera was one of them, but just a few days before the event Ferrara signed an exclusive contract with PSW. I decided to maintain the title match and give the title to Sunburst, who had been booked as an underdog. Then Sunburst had a good reign and ultimately became an important worker.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Worker of the Year
Armando Guerrero in SZW - Sidney Zone Wrestling by @HiPlus

I think Armando Guerrero should be in this category right there with the best of the year. Armando's segments have been one of the most creative things I've read here.

Face Worker of the Year

Armando Guerrero in SZW - Sidney Zone Wrestling by @HiPlus Belongs here for the reasons above mentioned.

Heel Worker of the Year
Grace Harper in LAP - Lucha America Productions by @newbiezness

Self-nominating a worker that I think has been a little bit underrated but has been crucial for this diary. As @John Lions once said she is an uber heel.

Champion of the Year
Remmy Skye holding the LAP Lucha title in LAP - Lucha America Productions by @newbiezness

Self-nominating the worker that almost single-handedly carried my most successful diary for a year and a half in-game becoming the first LAP Lucha champion and holding it for 17 defences in a span where he was unbeaten in 24 consecutive 1vs1 matches. It started as a story of redemption and it led to the best form in his career.

Tag Team of the Year
Golden Grapplers (Lee Bawes & Christian Blithe) in SZW - Sidney Zone Wrestling by @HiPlus

My favorite tag team in SZW. Their entrances and promos were great. They were great in-ring. They were good individually and as a tag team.

Stable of the Year
Frisby's Foundation For Fitness in NWF: Disrupting The Market by @Charasmatic Enigma

Chuck Frisby was the initiator but later all the members Stuart Wilson, Dwayne Dark, Bret Heartbreak and Holly Leves (these last two may be unofficial members) had an important role and benefited from the spotlight to develop their personalities.

Angle/Segment of the Year
Chuck Frisby at Locked & Loaded in NWF: Disrupting The Market by @Charasmatic Enigma

Chuck Frisby in the first NWF event. It wasn't his first segment but it felt special as @Charasmatic Enigma had asked readers previously what sign would they bring to the show and used them in the segment brilliantly.

Storyline of the Year
LAP takeover of FCW in LAP - Lucha America Productions by @newbiezness

This was a huge storyline that led to some of my best events so far like LAP x FCW Forbidden Gate 2021 or LAP x FCW The Fight For Contracts 2021. I also used this storyline to build Samael The Executioner and Raven Nightfall as a dominant force in LAP and many others had the opportunity to shine thanks to this storyline like Sunburst, El Toro De Oro Jr, etc.

Event of the Year
LAP x FCW The Fight For Contracts 2021 in LAP - Lucha America Production by @newbiezness

Self-nominating again the event where I think the diary definitely changed from dependence on Remmy Skye's streak to much more variety.

Thanks for the nom, but Rise of a Star is the only diary I've ever written here, and Captain Kremmen's AWA 1989 diary is a real world diary, not CVerse.  Glad that you like both diaries and all the work that get put into them though.  😁

As a thought, for the 2024 nominations, would the community prefer a nomination thread open all year long, to add nominations every month for the Diary of the YEAR? Or the current system of nominations at the end of every year?

I'd prefer to add nominations every month if the thread is updated with the DOTM winners (as they get automatically nominated for Diary of the Year if I'm correct) to see who's been already nominated in each category. But that would be more work for you and you're already doing a great job.
