So who do you have? It’s the end of the year and that means it’s time to look back on everything that has happened in 2018. Some things were good and some things were bad, but what’s the point in saying what worked or what didn’t if you can’t list them as the best or the worst? That means it’s time for some Best of 2018 Awards and WWE is so out in front that they didn’t even wait for the end of the year.

WWE has posted its winners of the 2018 Awards to its Instagram page. While you have to be logged in to see the post, there were sixteen awards given with all of them being positive. Keep in mind that these are from the WWE’s perspective, meaning that some of them might be a little bit shaky as opposed to the picks that you might have made. Here are the results:

* Male Superstar: Braun Strowman
* Female Superstar: Becky Lynch
* Best Tag Team: The Bar
* Hottest Rivalry: Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar
* Best Match: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte at WWE Evolution
* Return of the Year: Dean Ambrose
* Best Diss: Ronda Rousey – “The only door you ever knocked down was the door to John Cena’s bedroom!”
* Shocking Moment: Randy Orton tears Jeff Hardy’s ear.
* Funniest Moment: Titus O’Neil’s trip at Greatest Royal Rumble.
* Best Reunion: The Shield
* Best on the Mic: Paul Heyman
* Breakout Superstar: Elias
* Brand of the Year: RAW
* GM of the Year: Paige
* Most Underrated: Naomi
* Most Hated: Baron Corbin

You can’t see this enough. Check out the funniest moment of the year:

You have seen the memes but there is MORE! Alternate angles of Titus' trip heard around the world

Opinion: I’m not sure how many of these I can agree with but again, you can only expect so much from WWE’s in-house choices. Not all of these are ridiculous (saying Monday Night Raw was good is a stretch for anyone) but at least some of these are fun debating points. WWE has to do these themselves and since we don’t have the Slammys anymore, this is about as good as we’re going to get.

Which of these makes the most sense? Which of them is ridiculous? Let us know in the comments below.
