    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.

    Will. power or capacity of free, conscious choice.

    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.
    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!

    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.
