Pretty sure I've narrowed down my three to Matt Riddle, Lio Rush, and Kaito Ishida (in that order).

Riddle is a no-brainer. No explanation needed. Rush's non-Dojo Wars debut for CZW was 9/12/15 and for all of 2015, he had three matches on actual CZW shows. His EVOLVE debut was in November. I don't count Dojo Wars as a major company. I think that's silly. Therefore, to me, Rush is a rookie.

I want to vote Futa Nakamura over Ishida, and I might end up doing that, but Ishida has been a DG regular for a year now and he's really starting to put it together. Nakamura will have the brighter future, and we all know he'll get votes next year, so it doesn't really matter, but I'm leaning towards Ishida right now.

fwiw, the criteria for the award is how well the wrestlers performed in the given year, and is not intended to be based on future potential

Yuki Aoki made his Dove Pro debut 20/12/2015 and has seemingly not worked anywhere else so I'd include it.

Does anybody have a start date for Darby Allin? His EVOLVE debut was Mania weekend, I believe. Is he a long time indie guy, or relatively new?

Ok seriously just based on those 2 being eligible, I think we already might have a top 2.

I'm curious, would Jeff Cobb count? He's been around since 2009 but working promotions much smaller than CZW and debuted in PWG and Lucha Underground both in 2016.

Hana Kimura is already really good. She gets covered for in Oedo Tai but outside of Stardom, she is having better matches than you'd expect for someone who debuted in March. She carries herself really well.

another fun fact, she was everywhere I turned on the day I was at Sendai Girls and every time I saw her my thought was "if she's a wrestler, she's getting pushed to the moon". A handsome young lady!
