Happy Holidays everyone. Since we’re only a few days away from the start of 2011, I figured that now would be the perfect time to announce the first ever Squared Circle Sideshow year-end awards:


The Sideys!


Over the next few days I’ll be announcing the winners of all the Sideys. But first, the nominees:


*Quick Note: This has been a rather interesting year for me personally and professionally, so unfortunately I wasn’t able to catch ALL of the wrestling I would have liked to, that and COX cable doesn’t carry HDNet. So while I’m sure that ROH would have otherwise made it into a bunch of these categories, the primary nominees will come from WWE and TNA.
