Another 12 months of horrible wrestling is past us…and you know what that means: it’s time to vote for the absolute worst of the worst! What will win the 2012 Gooker Award?
Without further adieu, here’s the nominees!
The Various Loves of AJ Lee:
Want to simultaneously kill time on three hour Raws and a character that people at the beginning of the year actually liked? Then just put AJ Lee into every possible segment on the show as a lunatic skank who bounces from man to man for no logical reason!
It appeared that AJ Styles and Dixie Carter were having an affair this year in TNA. As it turned out, AJ had actually impregnated a crack whore named Claire Lynch. How bad was it? The actress who played Ms. Lynch decided to quit TNA and go back to the Popeye ride at Universal Studios theme park. That says it all.
Despite being on of their more talented in-ring women wrestlers, WWE could find nothing to do this year with Nattie Neidhart. So she began farting all over television. Really, no joke. One of the stinkiest angles you could every imagine.
Aces & Eights:
The never-ending saga of a gang of hoodlums who wanted to invade Impact Wrestling. Which they did, despite Hulk Hogan locking the doors to keep them out. Seriously, that was a major plot point.
Daniel Bryan’s 18 Second WrestleMania:
Coming into WrestleMania 28, Daniel Bryan was one of the hottest properties in WWE. His YES YES YES chants had caught on not only at wrestling shows, but major sporting events as well. So what does WWE do? Job him out to smilin’ Sheamus in 18 seconds.
The Zack Ryder-Eve Torres Love Affair:
You gotta feel for Zack Ryder. After being told for years that he needed to find a way to get himself over, he does just that via an incredibly entertaining YouTube show. He then gets his first major storyline…and is buried deep beneath the earth as the biggest geek on planet earth. Poor guy.
And that’s that! So who is the very worst of the very worst? The poll closes in just a couple weeks, so get your votes in! The ‘winner’ will be inducted February 1!
