BALLOT: 2017 Pro Wrestling Iowa Network Year End Awards

——The Pro Wrestling Iowa Network 2017 Year End Awards——

For the first time ever we are proud to present the Pro Wrestling Iowa Network Year End Awards for 2017.  This will be voted on by YOU! The listeners of the Pro Wrestling Iowa Network.  We’ve spent hours discussing categories and nominations and now it’s in your hands.  Please make sure to have your completed ballot returned to us via email by Wednesday, December 27, 2017 at 11:59 p.m.  You can send your selections to, and please only one ballot per person.  Feel free to just list your selections, copy and paste this ballot, however you see fit — but make sure you get these in to us in time for your voice to be heard!

We will be announcing the winners of the Year End Awards at the Pro Wrestling Mothership Fallout Shelter Capitol Wrestling Watch Party on Friday, December 29, 2017 which you are all encouraged to attend! This will be taking place at Cal’s Fine Food & Spirits in Norwalk, Iowa, from 4pm until 11pm.  If you can’t make the event — no worries! We will be streaming the announcements live on Facebook Live!

As a quick note — The Wrestling Revolver was not included in the nomination process as they have run shows outside the state of Iowa, and we wanted the focus to be on the four incredible home grown promotions we have in Iowa: 3XW, CEW, IPW and SCW.

If you feel we have left something off, feel free to write-in your selections, but please keep in mind the Male/Female/Tag Team of the Year Nominations must have worked for one of the four Iowa based promotions this year and they CANNOT be signed to a promotion with national television coverage. (i.e. Beer City Bruiser is not eligible due to being on Ring of Honor television).

Last thing, please take note at the header of each category as we want you to pick more than one selection for each category (i.e. select five for Male Wrestler of the Year, etc.).

And now for the nominations……
