We’re nearing the end of 2018 and that means it’s time for Wrestling Inc.’s “Best of 2018” awards! Each day, over the next week, we will present a category that you can put in nominations for in our comments section, below.

This year you can nominate the “best of” in each of the following promotions: WWE / NXT, Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro Wrestling, Impact Wrestling, and the Independents.

The category for today is: “Breakout Star Of The Year.” This group includes wrestlers who debuted this year and found instant success, or stars that have been around for awhile and have progressed immensely in each promotion (WWE / NXT, ROH, NJPW, Impact, and the Independents).

Please copy/paste the following in the comments section below with your nominations for each promotion included. (Nominations that are not submitted like this will not be counted. If you do not wish to nominate someone from a promotion please leave the space blank or write N/A).
