Tom Zenk (Z-Man) Passes Away at 59

https://411mania.com/wrestling/wcw-wwe-alumnus-tom-zenk-passes-away-fifty-nine/ I was always a fan of the guy.  He wasn’t a huge star or ever anything close but he had a good look and was perfect as a pretty boy.  You would probably remember him best as part of the Can-Am Connection, who opened Wrestlemania III.  Zenk left the company in a contract dispute […]

These are Meltzer and Company’s awards (yes I’m aware his readers vote on them and if you believe that he doesn’t influence voting, you’re really missing the obvious) and I’ve jotted down a few thoughts on each.
