Around this time of year, Bleacher Report is full of excellent articles recapping the year's best matches, shows, wrestlers and many other things for 2011. As a change of pace, I want to bring a retrospective look at years past and analyze the best (or worst) of that calendar year.
There is no better place to start than one of the most intriguing years in wrestling history: 2001.
This was a summer dominated by the Invasion storyline, which could have been so much better if the WCW stars were given an opportunity to stand on the same level as the WWE stars. Even so, the year was filled with great matches and PPV events and a packed roster eager to perform for the fans.
This is the first in what is hopefully a series of articles where I look back on years past and give out some awards. Any suggestions for a year to review are more than welcome in the comments, as I will make slideshows on the most popular years.
Now let's hand out some awards.
