The one category that we do know about for this year are the finalists in the Superstar of the Year race. Each of these six men have a claim to the honor.
Alberto Del Rio won Money in the Bank, a 40-man Royal Rumble, and was a two-time WWE Champion in 2011. Whether or not his gimmick has been marred in the last twelve months, he was able to walk out of SummerSlam as WWE Champion and stand as champion during RAW's first-ever show in Mexico.
CM Punk had his career revitalized in 2011 as he went from owning the Royal Rumble match with the New Nexus to nearly leaving WWE during the summer. Punk is a two-time WWE Champion, including his current reign, and brought more publicity to WWE during the Summer of Punk than at any other time in years.
The ever-controversial John Cena is the only three-time WWE Champion in 2011 and his ongoing storyline with The Rock will lead to one of the most anticipated WrestleManias of all-time. Cena also became the first-ever 10-time WWE Champion in history during this year.
Mark Henry revitalized his career in 2011, winning his first world championship. The current World Heavyweight Champion has only been defeated once on pay-per-view this year. Even that loss was just because Mark Henry had himself disqualified on purpose at Survivor Series.
The Miz began 2011 as WWE Champion, defeating John Cena in the main event of WrestleMania. The Awesome One also teamed with R-Truth and, despite being fired earlier this year, made one of the biggest impacts of the year.
Randy Orton went to SmackDown after this year's WWE Draft and took the World Heavyweight Championship shortly after. Orton would win the title again at SummerSlam in one of the best and more hardcore matches of the year.
