*A performer must be 25-years-old or younger on December 31 of the year that the award has been designated for. For example, the performer who is given the award for 2013 must be born no earlier than December 30, 1987. The performer must also be 18-years-old or older on December 31 of the year that the award has been designated for. For example, the performer who is given the award for 2013 must be born no earlier than December 31, 1995. If the age of a performer cannot be determined beyond a reasonable doubt by members of The Johnson Transcript staff then that performer is not eligible.

*The winner should have an outstanding performance in the year that the award has been designated for. Votes should be cast based on what a performer did in the year that the award has been designated for and should not be based on a performer’s overall contributions to the professional wrestling industry. The award is voted on by readers of The Johnson Transcript. Staff may also vote. Each person should only vote once and a thorough attempt will be made to limit each person to one vote. Votes are cast between August 1 and August 31 in the year following the year that the award has been designated for.

*The performer must have been featured at least once on The Johnson Transcript from January 1 to December 31 in the year that the award has been designated for. Being featured is defined as being mentioned or included in some form of media in a piece authored by a member of The Johnson Transcript staff. Readers are encouraged to nominate wrestlers who have not been featured and meet all other criteria. Provided that the nominee meets all other criteria they will receive a mention. All reader nominations must be made prior to December 31 in the year that the award has been designated for.

*The performer who wins this award must never have been under contract to a company commonly understood as one of the top two promotions in the United States in the year that the award has been designated for. If a company falls out of what are commonly understood as the top two spots then a signed performer of that company could be eligible for the award in subsequent years, but not in a year where the company was a top two company. For example, if one company becomes the number three company in 2013 then a performer signed to that company would not be eligible to earn an award for 2013. However, if the company stays at the number three spot throughout 2014 then a performer signed to that company who meets the other criteria would be eligible to win the award for 2013.
