To me its a toss up between Roode and Aries. Honorable mention to bully ray he has been towing the line for a couple years now. In Football there is an award for comeback player of the year. I would award that to Ray for sure.
As for aries and roode they are neck in neck. In the end I went, with Roode. Aries I am a bigger fan of, however I must give Roode his due. He delivered in all facets of the business. His record breaking reign, during which we saw a very positive culture change in TNA, and for the better IMO.
