    Probably either El Generico for his betrayed underdog that needs to get fired up again deal, or Bryan Danielson for his quiet "Miz needs to stop fucking up his lines while telling me I have no personality" deal.

    John Cena, Randy Orton, or Davey Richards. The fans have now fully embraced these guys and you can say that most of their fans have a "emotional connection" to them. Cena's proof is his recent loss or happenings over the last couple of months with the fans even starting a "Never Give Up" chant. Orton's absence from being a hero for nearly 5 years was meant with open arms and lead to months of the fans eating up whatever Orton did. Unlike Cena, I highly doubt he will lose it. Richards has become the sole golden boy of ROH and fans are nearly foaming at the mouth for a title win for him. Getting over by sheer workrate is pretty easy in the indies but staying on that level with the fans sheer glee at your name being on the card is hard to argue against. He repped(Sp?) The American Flag in Canada and still did not get booed for pete sake.

    Either John Cena or Daniel Bryan. Cena has had some of the best babyface promos in a long time.. and he's always solid in the ring.. Bryan has been a tremendous babyface wrestler this year and I would probably vote for him for wrestler of the year at this point.

    For me, it has to be Cena. Everything, as far as storylines and emotion, that he's touched this year has turned to gold. His epic stuff with Batista (which was a lot to do with Batista's wonderful heel character), the Nexus storyline, his feud with Sheamus. He's been in some very emotionally compelling angles this year.

    Cena is currently at Steamboat levels of babyface-ishness. No one else has had the fans as emotionally invested in them as him.

    Cena has been a terriffic face this year. He's had great feuds with Batista, Sheamus, and Nexus. He definitely played the role of the anti-Nexus well; if anything, the Nexus storyline may have raised his game.
    Wade. to attack, approach, or begin vigorously.
    Will. power or capacity of free, conscious choice.
    Amiable. (to persons) having a pleasing and kindly disposition.

    Cena and Danielson are the only possible choices, in my opinion. Orton gets tons of cheers but hasn't really done anything outstandingly heroic, which is kind of the point of his character, but is also something that disqualifies him from this for me. Smackdown doesn't really have any really good baby faces which is one of their biggest problems IMO. If we're including Japan then Prince Devitt should be given a mention at least.

    The best thing about Orton is that he isn't insanely heroic or a cookie cutter face like a John Cena(Not a insult). He is fighting for himself and he is his own man. He does what he needs to do to survive or establish dominance whether that is Punting Jericho into a different country or trying to eliminate the one negative dynamic in his match in other beloved babyface John Cena. Austin wasn't heroic and that made his character freaking awesome.

    I definitely like that about Orton, I just wouldn't nominate him for this. His cold, neutral demeanor can also go from smooth and bad ass to monotonous, tiresome, and unfitting when he's given something poor to say.

    How can Cena be considered when he gets booed at nearly every arena? I don't care if he has a ton of fans cheering for him as well, but as long as he has the boos (Virtually the only thing a face shouldn't have) he can't be considered as the top face. Hardly a Steamboat-like face.

    Without seeing much of Generico, I'd probably say Orton. Once he turned face, the guy was getting some great face reactions.

    This goes to Orton for the insane crowd reactions he has gotten since he turned full face. Cena as Jim said gets a boatload of cheers but also a boatload of jeers, so he loses out to Orton in this.
    Get that trash out of here!

    Kurt Angle. There are plenty of Angle haters around here, but he had a good year, and consistently got crowd reaction. And my problem with WWE is no faces stick out for me other than Cena, who as Jim has mentioned gets bood a hell of a lot to be the best face. Maybe the top draw, but not the best face. Angle gets cheered when they want him to be cheered, and bood when they want him to be bood... So that's my pick.

    (Anderson did a hell of a job in my estimation of turning into a face in TNA. He gets the best reaction of any wrestler there right now too I think... maybe even as good as most reactions I see in the WWE. Pope also does well with reaction as a face, but i dunno.. I think he'd be a better heel.)

    In an arena where people cheer heels and boo faces, even if the heels are being utter cocks, Mr. Anderson is still cheered the most vociferously of most individuals I've seen. He's had a great face turn that has recently regained its meaning and intensity, but I'm not sure that I could nom him, since for at least a third of the year, he was a great heel instead.

    I'm going to go for Cena. He's still got booers, but to hell with them, he's done more to engage crowds this year than many people have done in an age. He really stepped it up and went from some G-d-awful promos to really bringing the emotion and intensity.

    For pure consistancy, I'm going with Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton.

    Rey would probably be my second choice come to think of it. Has been in some really good feuds this year again, and always gets the fans solidly behind him. His promo work also improved a lot in the early part of the year.

    Randy Orton... The guy is extremely over, the fans always seem to love his character and I have enjoyed what I have seen of Orton, so far Face of the Year more so than Mysterio (and yes I admit, most of that is due to the dislike of Mysterio lol).

    Thanks to Troy.

    Three people in my consideration are Mysterio, Cena, and Generico. It's a toss up between them.

As you know I'm apart of a shit load of forums and one of them seems to be in chaos. You have a Owner who barely is on the site these days, and only made one Global Moderator for the forum. It seems the chaos has gotten so bad members mostly younger members are using racist and gay slurs to their answers in debate. Legit I saw three threads where members put f***** and that's it. Yesterday I rage over these members I basically told them to stop that, it gives no value to what you're saying in a post. No one will take you seriously if you using such words just to say it. Shoot even the sb is a jungle full of chaos with the same situation. I came to the G-Mod and said hey you're in charge of this forum, you let shit go under the rug why did I say that? Well last week a member came into my LD for Impact and spoiled the whole show for most people. I went in the sb for the forum and said hey man this guy is fucking up the experience for people in the sb can you do something. He pretty much knew this member and told me he's done this before so I'm thinking it took me to say something for you to act? Also a month ago I had a problem with a member named Nero where randomly out of no where he puts racist pics of Hispanic doing crimes, eating Tacos etc! I was like one I never talked about this guy the purpose of this. Again this G-Mod knew about his antics as well as Puls3 the Admin. A month before this I told the Admin he was a problem putting down new members left and right. Thank God I screencaped his actions and he hasn't been there since. Okay now back to the Global Mod I took it twitter and told the guy straight up you don't act because you love the slurping of your dick from members. He's doesn't want to mend fences pretty much and besides setting up a league for the forum for WWE 2k14 he does nothing for the forum. Now I want to talk to Puls3 personally because his rules are being broken left and right and his staff in charge is doing nothing by joining in the fun. I have a plan to get two or three other staff members who I think will be fair and firm when needed should I talk to him. I know I'm taking it seriously but I love this forum like I love this forum and I don't want it to be spoiled like Milk you feel me? Also on twitter and on the forum a bunch of little kids came to box with me when I was speaking my mind and I told them grow some hair on your chest before talking to me lol
