Wrestling Observer Awards (WON) 1980 - 2015 (and runner-ups)

For over thirty years, Dave Meltzer's Wrestling Observer Newsletter has published their annual awards in numerous categories. The full list of winners can be found online at Wikipedia. However, a comprehensive list of top finishers in each category was much more difficult to locate. With the help from many other people, we have tracked down this information online and wish to present an archive of that material (sans Dave's commentary).
 
Please note that the modern eligibility period for each year is from December Prior Year through November Current Year  (i.e. the 2010 Awards cover Dec 2009 to Nov 2010).
