2009 Dirty Awards: Feud of the Year

Nominations and Winner:
- Legacy vs. DX
- CM Punk vs. Jeff Hardy (Winner)
- John Cena vs. Randy Orton
- The Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels
- Vladimir Kozlov vs. Ezekiel Jackson
Unlike the best and worst storyline of the year Dirty this award looks at the matches and story combined. Punk vs. Hardy won because it took real life and incorporated it. Disappointingly Punk’s warning of Hardy’s lifestyle costing him seems all too true. Legacy and DX’s feud was born out Triple H’s frustration of being old and needing a partner and it went from there. Cena vs. Orton was a good heel vs. Face feud but it lacked the cutting edge to win the award. Taker vs. HBK was a good match and the build up was amazing starting simply with the line ‘the road to Heaven can be Hell’ but I lacked the longevity to make it the feud of the year. Kozlov vs. Jackson and the Ruthless Roundtable is probably the best thing to come from ECW this year. The one-upmanship led to a stable which now looks like it could be falling apart at the seams but as it has not finished it cannot be feud of the year.

O’Dea Note: I don’t know where this last one has come from Methos has just put this in, that’s rubbish that’s not a feud. I’m Annoyed that Zeke-Vladimir got anywhere near this category, It’s not because I haven’t been watching ECW recently, back when that feud was happening I was watching all of ECW every week and that stuff with those two was stupid and crap and to be honest I think Methos was just looking at the bias article on WWE.com about ECW when he wasn't watching it. They think that one diva slapping another (not very well) is a brutal beat down. But otherwise, thanks to a great heel turn by CM Punk his feud against Jeff Hardy was an odds on favourite and well earned winner of this Dirty. It’s strange really because I put up an article on an interview that talked about Punk going heel and back then, it really felt like a millennium away from it actually happening, but I’m glad it did.
