Nominees: Cody Rhodes, Kenny Omega, Edge, Mick Foley, Seth Rollins

Bend the Knee, he said. The Undisputed PCW Heavyweight Champion of the World Cody Rhodes set his sights on the title in late March of 2017, embarking on a determined quest towards royalty. Accruing twelve wins to his one loss since then, Cody defeated names like CM Punk, former Rising Champion and current Tag Team Champion Braun Strowman, Austin Aries, Kevin Steen, current Rising and Tag Team Champion Luke Harper, former PCW Champion Kenny Omega, AJ Styles, former Television Champion Jay Briscoe, Kazuchika Okada, former PCW World Heavyweight Champion Finn Balor, and former PCW Champion Mick Foley. Along this journey to the upper echelon of PCW Superstars, Rhodes united with Alexa Bliss to form a power couple that runs the most dominant faction in the company, The Throne. Over the last three-quarters of the year, Cody has run straight through every obstacle in his path, and more importantly? Through every challenger for his title. His nine months of accolades in PCW include successful title defenses over AJ Styles, Finn Balor, Drew Galloway, and Mick Foley. With his PCW World Heavyweight Championship reign standing at over 150 days, Cody Rhodes has made 2017 the Year of Cody. Whether it was through his .923 winning percentage in 2017 or through the immense amount of official Cody Rhodes (and Throne) merchandise sold, Cody Rhodes has made his 2017 a year to remember, and even further? He's made himself a man to remember

When Kenny Omega first came into PCW, he was arguably the most hated man in the company, or at least the second-most. He was maniacal, he was egotistical, and was willing to end people’s careers just to get what he wanted, and what he wanted was Perfection. With the likes of The Miz, Corey Graves, and former Paht to Glory winner Briley Pierce among the list of victims who fell ot his One Winged Angel, Kenny Omega was primed to achieve his long desired goal. However, as the year progressed, and Kenny found himself coming just short of his Perfection, he started to have a change in heart. Realizing that ending the careers of others was not the way to achieve perfection, he set forth to achieve it in a new way… the right way. From then, he main evented Unbroken and became PCW Champion, and went on to have classic matches with men like Cody Rhodes, Luke Harper, and Mankind. Even though Kenny Omega no longer hodls PCW Gold, he has found his perfection. The only question left, is will his year have the perfect ending?

Cunning, sly, manipulative, opportunistic. These are all words that describe Edge's run at the beginning of this year. Starting the year off with a bang at the most watched Pay-Per-View of the year, Resurrection, Edge claimed his first PCW World Heavyweight Championship, but he didn't stop there. Edge dominated for months, sending Finn Balor to the hospital and causing a rating spike in the process. The ratings spike lead to many superstars flocking the company and Edge claims his presence on the top of the company is what lead to that spike. Edge's run did not end as many would expect, succumbing to his neck injury that he endured many years ago, but his short run atop the company rivals the great runs of the past.

Whether you know him by Mick Foley, Mankind, Cactus Jack, or Dude Love we can all agree that he is one hell of a competitor. Signing with the company in late July, Foley has proven himself to be a big player in PCW. Mick Foley made his Pay-Per-View in ring debut in the historic Keys to the Kingdom match. Despite not emerging victorious, Foley did catch the attention of many roster members and fans alike. Despite his age he was still a serious and capable competitor. When Mick Foley was set to face off against Kenny Omega for the PCW Championship, he shocked the world when he refused to acknowledge the fan vote for Dude Love and opted to face Omega as the deranged Mankind. It was there that Mankind would win his first (of what may be many) championship in PCW. Mankind would go on to face Cody Rhodes at Fallout II in hopes of being the man to stop The American Nightmare, but alas, it was Cody Rhodes who emerged victorious and unified the two championships. Whether he's Dude Love, Mankind, Cactus Jack, Mick Foley, in or out of the Ministry, or even a Champion, he has proven to the entire world that he is a strong and deserving contender for PCW's Man of the Year Award. As for what Mick Foley has in mind for 2018? Only he could answer that...

He was redesigned. He was rebuilt. But above all else, Seth Rollins was redeemed. After returning to the PCW ring in late February of 2016, Rollins aligned himself with the Authority and won the Path to Glory Tournament before failing to win the PCW World Heavyweight Championship from Brock Lesnar at Unbroken VI. However, after he was betrayed by JoJo Copeland (then JoJo Offerman) during his rivalry with former PCW World Heavyweight Champion Edge, Rollins began to understand the error of his ways. Rather than return to his traditional nefarious measures, Seth instead opted to redeem himself, both in the eyes of the PCW Universe and in his own eyes. Through the course of 2017, Rollins won seven of his ten matches, including wins over names like Bray Wyatt, Kassius Ohno, former PCW Rising Champion Johnny Mundo, Bobby Roode, Adam Cole, former Television Champion Marty Scurll, Curtis Axel, and Kazuchika Okada. Most telling of his year, however, would be the second-longest PCW Rising Championship reign in PCW history. After defeating Johnny Mundo on the March 23rd episode of Thursday Night Turmoil, Rollins would go on to hold the title for over one hundred and ninety days, second only to The Hurricane's reign of over three hundred days. With successful title defenses against Bobby Roode and Adam Cole, Rollins' 2017 far outshone any of the six years he'd spent in PCW prior. For years, Rollins offered the assertion that when people step into the ring with him, no one survives. But for Seth Rollins, the legacy of his 2017 can and will.
