I disagree with that take on Styles would be in the same position as Nakamura very very very strongly. There's a lot of things I can say about Styles, but he never takes a day off. He wrestles every match like it's a big match. Nakamura wrestles every match as if it's "another match he is wrestling in"

The easiest thing to say, is that Nakamura now does the same shit I harp on Tanahashi for, and that's having it firmly in coast if it's not a PPV.

I dig Roman in the ring most of the time, but not so much otherwise. On the other hand, I like everything Nakamura does. Even if some of his big matches haven't lived up to expectations this year, he's all around a better performer. Besides, I'll take YeaOH! over OoWAH! any day.

Voted Roman on instinct but I could see the case against him this year. He missed time. His Mania match sucked. And the Rusev matches underdelivered.

I would have never thought Vince's "GOD DAMMIT GOTTA MAKE ROMAN LOOK STRONG PAL" edict would reach as far as DVDVR but here we are

Ugh...I don't want to vote for Reigns in this matchup, but he had the better year, even with the totally shitty main event with HHH at WM.

Wasn't your gimmick that you hated Japan and loved PWG? What did I miss?

I saw Nakamura live too many times to rate him over Reigns.  On the other hand I might be the higher on Nakamura v. Roode than anyone on Earth so there is that

This match up is hard for odd reasons, Roman almost always brought the goods in matches but I wasn't actually interested or anticipating his matches, while I was always interested and anticipating Nakamura's matches they sometimes weren't up to the level they could have been. Roman has the matches but he lacks the connection. Also even with his less polished english Nakamura is a better promo in that he sounds sincere, confident and non-scripted while the Big Dog almost always sounds like he is reading lines some one else wrote. 

I'm going with Nakamura but it was way closer than I would have thought a year ago.

You may be laughing now, but you'll be thanking me when Vince reads my post and says, "This young man is right, perhaps I should pull back on Roman's push."

YOU'RE WELCOME.

I was actually following the March Madness "vote for the wrestler who had the better year" edict.

It's mind-blowing to realize Roman is actually a decent worker and quite possibly had a better year than Shinsuke. His fatal flaw is being unable to connect to his audience.

His fatal flaw is they haven't turned him heel yet.
