Worst Major Show of the Year (must be a PPV or indy show, no episodes of TV shows):

Question: Should each night of Mania and Wrestle Kingdom be considered individually?

That's how I approach this, at least.

It should be taken as an overall show, that’s what I’ve done. And Wrestlemania was POOR.

We should do our own forum based awards lol. Probably more entertaining than anything really going on in Wrestling right now...
When they come, they'll come at what you love.

I think they can be taken as either, it's even understandable to think that one night was good while the other was bad.

HM: Jushin Liger's retirement. Not because anything bad happened in the proceedings or anything, it just made me depressed

Throw The Remote Award (most facepalmingly or infuriatingly awful booking decision): Becky Lynch surrenders the Raw Women's Title. Like, I know it couldn't have been helped, but having Becky demand Asuka cash in to be awarded the title gave me Bash at the Beach 2000 vibes, even if that was the most respectful way they could've done it.
