Currently every year one of the most anticipated issues for my bulletin Ring Around The Northwest are the year end awards issue. We look at what wrestlers were the most successful during that year. Now currently I have a Wrestler of The Year which I define as the wrestler that was the most successful. The wrestler who the fans perceive as the most successful. I chart all wins over each wrestler and it becomes clear who the most successful were. In recent times I have found out that sometimes the most successful in terms of wins is not necessarily the "best worker". Now I have another category, that I call hardest or best worker, that honors a wrestlers work even if they don't go over every time. What I have this edition is the Wrestler and Tag Team of The Year in The Northwest for the past 50 years. Next edition I will have the winners for 2001 and probably some other surprises.
