    Wasn’t the Saudi plane incident in late 2019, not 2020?

  3. Snip says:

    While Brodie Lee’s passing was Story of the Year in votes for the Gerweck Award. The real Story of the Year for 2020 was unfortunely the Pandemic.

    The combinded voting of Pandemic + Wrestling shows without fans (which was caused by the pandemic) + WWE releasing talent during pandemic was 186 votes.
