2009 Student Choice Mid-Year Awards
By: Anthony J. Valvo of WrestleView.com


Well class, you have heard from me long enough! After a six day span of posting my rankings and The Faculty posting their 2009 Mid-Year Awards, it is your turn! It is your time to shine!

I will provide the classroom with a ballot on who we voted for the past week. All you have to do is pick one of the names on the list or create your own. The magic number here is 25. In order to get a true answer, I will need twenty five of you to provide me your choices for the best (and worst) and I will post the 2009 Student Choice Awards within the next couple weeks. So far actually, I have three. That means I only need 22 more responses (though more would be appreciated as well).

So, students here is the ballot for the 2009 Mid-Year Awards (picked by The Faculty of WrestleView).

Once again, the members who voted in the WV Awards were:

* Joe Baiamonte (Baiamonte’s Casa)
* David Stephens (That’s A Wrap! and ECW recapper)
* Josh Boutwell (Viva La Raza! TNA/ROH recapper)
* Jose Marrero (Wrestling Rumblings)
* Anthony Valvo (From the Desk of Mr. V)
* Matt O’Brien (Notes From the Nosebleeds)
* Phil Chroniger (On Second Thought…)
* Josh Piedra (The Shoot)
* Doug Lackey (Reality From Ringside)
* Chris Kelly (Ex-TNA Epics recapper and fill in columnist)
* Sean Hurley (The Sharpshooter)
* Mike Tedesco (WWE Superstars and Smackdown recapper)

And now, our 22 question ballot for the best of awards (choices picked by The Faculty of WrestleView).

**By the Way if you want to pick someone else, place it next to “Other”.**

**Also, if you can please place your pick in bold. If you e-mail me through hotmail or yahoo, just highlight your pick and click the bold button (and you are set). No need to type it all over again. Just one example, make your picks however you like them.**

Here is the ballot class! All you have to do is make your picks for the best and worst of 2009! I hope that we can get 25 of the WrestleView readers to complete this. It should not take too long class. Those who complete it will receive a gold star in my next column. So, on behalf of the WrestleView Faculty I am the resident teacher saying enjoy your week and I will be back on Thursday. Until the next “From the Desk of Mr. V”, you are all...DISMISSED!
