The nominees for the 2018 Southern California Tag-Team of the Year Award have been released and the web poll voting is now open. This year’s group of eight includes three prior winners and four first time nominees.
The three prior winners of the award that are returning to the ballot in 2018 are True Grit (2017), PPRay (2013), and RockNES Monsters (2010 and 2011). If RockNES Monsters win the award, they will join the Young Bucks as the only teams to have won the award three or more times.

Southern California Tag-Team of the Year
The Southern California Year End Awards started in 1999, on SoCal-Wrestling.com and were taken over by SoCalUncensored.com starting in 2001. The awards are largely recognized as one of the most prestigious awards in independent wrestling and have been referenced in national and international wrestling media. The voting for the awards consists of two parts: a public web poll worth 35% of the total vote and balloting by a committee of voters, which is worth 65% of the total.
The 2018 Southern California Pro-Wrestling Awards winners will be announced on January 22, 2019.
