For our fifth consecutive year, we have recognized the most beloved, hated, and best moments that the year brought us. 2020 may have only had one show due to the global pandemic but it will was a year that went down in history for our company as we crowned a new champion, Troy Hollywood. We saw new tag team combinations awe the world and we saw several key roster members make the transition to All Elite Wrestling this year on both their Dark and Dynamite shows. So without further ado, our fans have spoken loudly in a record-setting response to let us know who they felt deserved this year’s recognition.
Most Hated Heel – The Wanderer of the Wasteland: Leon Scott
Wrestler Of The Year – IGNITE Women’s Champion: Kaci Lennox
Favorite Female Wrestler – The King: Kilynn King
Favorite Match of 2020 – Kilynn King vs Kaci Lennox (Title Match)
Fan Favorite Wrestler: Serpentico
Favorite Debut: The Dream Girl Ellie
We are excited for Serpentico as his “is he/isn’t he” status in All Elite Wrestling (AEW) has finally been put to rest in an exclusive interview with Inside The Ropes. Serpentico has confirmed that he is indeed All Elite. Our favorite masked wrestler has become a mainstay on the AEW Dark roster since March wrestling as Jon Cruz and Serpentico on various shows for the company. But his career-defining moment came when he tagged on the 30th Anniversary Match with Luther (Chaos Project) against the Demo God Chris Jericho and Jake Hager.
Fans began to question his ongoing IGNITE Wrestling storyline when he challenged newly crowned Undisputed Champion Troy Hollywood but we were mum on this match for our upcoming show until last week when we opened the match up to challengers for the title.
MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT:— IGNITE Wrestling 🔥 (@IGNITEWrestling) October 16, 2020
Due to Serpentico’s schedule and obligations in AEW, our title match against Troy Hollywood will be changed.
IGNITE Management is carefully considering what new challenger will be facing Troy Hollywood for the Undisputed Title.
While we had not confirmed his status at that time, we realized we needed to fill that match for our upcoming show and we will be announcing that contestant soon. Meanwhile, we wish Serpentico all the best in AEW and although we are heartbroken to see him leave, we knew that his talent would lead him to the biggest stages in wrestling. Love ya Snakeman and we urge you all to tune in and watch him as well as check out his indy matches on our Youtube channel.
