Bobby James Awards History

Ever notice how I reference “The Bobby-james Awards?” Well now you can browse the history for yourself!

The Bobby-james Awards were established in 2002, in conjunction with WWE Magazine’s “Best of 2002” edition.  Dissatisfied with some of the magazine’s selections, I wanted to create a year-end list of my own, dubbed “The Bobby-james Awards.” Since then, I’ve maintained my year-end ranking of WWE performers, matches, and moments – and have encompassed film, television, and music.  Below is the complete history of The Bobby-james Awards.  I’ve included a set of photographs with each category (complete history is listed below the albums).
