2018 Georgia Wrestling Awards - ACTION Winners

The winners of the 2018 Georgia Wrestling Awards were recently announced, and several talents who appear regularly (not exclusively of course) for ACTION Wrestling were honored.

  • Male Performer - Inaugural ACTION Wrestling Champion, AC Mack - He is a tremendous talent in the ring, and more importantly he is fantastic at whipping the crowd into a frenzy with his mic work. He's a guy you want to pay your hard-earned money to see get beat.

  • Female Performer - Dani Jordyn - At the free show (ACTION In The Park on Independent Wrestling TV) I told Dani Jordyn that "Tyrone loves her" and it's true. They've been behind her since her first appearance, and that support won't diminish even a little going forward.

  • Most Improved - Alan Angels - Bad attitude or not, he's a guy that I had heard a lot about, was excited to see him live, and he absolutely delivered every time I've seen him since.

  • Tag Team Or Stable - Team TAG (Billy Buck, Kevin Blue, and Chris Spectra) - These guys  are a tremendous asset to any show they are on. The crowd loves to hate them, and they love to be hated. It's a perfect marriage between crowd and performer. They are really good at making sure you hate them too.

  • Technician - Slim J - He's a Georgia independent wrestling institution at this point, and I'm glad I was able to see him way back in the day when we traveled to NWA WildSide shows regularly. Slim can flat go in the ring on the mat or through the air. He's always a pleasure to watch. 

These awards are meaningful because they are voted on by those in the industry itself.

Here's how Larry Goodman explained it when nominations opened up in November 2018.
Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Georgia Wrestling Awards. Anyone involved in Georgia wrestling in some capacity, be it as a wrestler, referee, booker, promoter, announcer, writer or photographer, is eligible to submit nominations. You may submit a maximum of five names in each category. Fan submissions will not be accepted.

Although I do not have a vote, I feel that the four winners from ACTION Wrestling are very deserving. They are examples of the level of talent that I hoped ACTION would be able to bring in when the promotion was officially announced. They have been a huge part of making ACTION the success it is.

Congratulations to all of them, and I hope their 2019 is even bigger and better than their 2018.
