2017 PW Awards: Best Non-Wrestler

Published

on

Winner: Paul Heyman

“Heyman just edged out Zelina Vega this year to claim himself some more Fight Booth PW gold. The 2013 ‘Heel of the Year’ award winner continues to serve as Brock Lesnar’s ‘Advocate’, standing by his side as he runs roughshod through challengers for his Universal Championship. Used just as sparingly as Lesnar on WWE TV these days, Heyman is just as much of a special attraction; it’s a gimmick that still works as evidenced by him winning this award.” – Dave Reno

“God damn. Is it not just the best when you hear that Brock Lesnar will be showing up on Raw? And you’re not even looking forward to Brock that much, because you KNOW Brock is just going to be standing there, bouncing around, holding his title, cashing his check, and then killing some random animal back up in Canada. You’re looking forward to hearing “LADIES AND GENTLEMEN… MYYYYY NAME… IS PAAAAAAUL HEYMAN…” He just brings so much joy to adults everywhere. He continues to cut the best promos. He continues to get us hyped for every time Brock gets to fight. He continues to be the best non-wrestling personality on the show every time he appears. God bless you, you magnificent man.” – Chris Langevin

Runner Up: Zelina Vega

“What a revelation Zelina Vega was in 2017. Whether you knew her as Rosita (from her TNA days) or Thea Trinidad— Vega’s best work has come during the last half-year where she took on the role of manager for Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas. Not only did it lead to a world title run for Almas, she’s helped take a character that was beginning to fade to the top of the heap in an instant. NXT was a brand that went through a bit of a resurgence after an off 2016 and Vega was one of the biggest reasons. I cannot wait to see what Vega and Almas bring to the proverbial table in 2018. The first word that comes to mind when I think of this duo is ELECTRICITY.” – Dave Reno

Honorable Mentions: Dan Lambert, Renee Young, Daniel Bryan, Jim Smallman, Excalibur, Corey Graves, Dave Meltzer
