Just because it always gets asked about
Meltzer announced that the WON Awards Ballot will be out in the new issue.
Some new stuff this year
1) Dave is actually asking for help in tabulating the votes. So it should be done in about a month (as opposed to months that it takes Dave)
2) New categories: Wrestler of the Year in the following categories: Women, American, Japanese, Mexican, European and Women MMA (there is still an overall Wrestler of the Year too)
Dave said he has been pestered for years by people to have separate "MVPs for each region" - he seemed to imply the most vocal complainants that a women would never win "wrestler of the year". It also was very much implied he is doing it just to shut them up - though he did acknowledge that it would at least put them in line with the big Japanese wrestling awards
