2019 MOTY Candidates/Recommend A Match
« on: January 01, 2019, 07:16:59 AM »
Just like the last two years, this thread is for people to put what they think are the best matches of the year, even if you think the MOTY already happened if something is really damn great you should still toss it in here for other people to check out. I'll be updating the top post throughout the year.

Already off to a good start

1/3/19 - AJPW Triple Crown - Kento Miyahara vs. KAI

Way better than I would have expected given KAI's tendency to run lukewarm-to-cold in singles matches, but he really brought it for this match and actually managed to elicit good crowd support and chants during the match

Spoiler: show
and even though he lost I hope KAI can parlay that into a revival of his career this year

Kenny Omega/Hiroshi Tanahashi at WrestleKingdom  deserves a shoutout.

Absolutely.

I thought Jericho/Naito was also strong as was Osperay/Ibushi.

1/22 Rey Vs Andrade 2/3 falls

even with the non-finish this was tremendous and we had rey hit his finish right before the run-in. This was just all action and go go go. Rey pulled everything out and then he was innovating new shit I've never seen before.

1/2 Daisuke Sekimoto Vs Ryoto Hama

STRONG VS FAT! The Ultimate Battle! These guys have had a lot of fun encounters in singles (and tags) and this is a really great one. Hama just gets fatter and fatter it seems like but it somehow hasn't hurt his mobility or ability to take a bump yet. He's got a great array of fat-man spots and Sekimoto dishes out the pain and has some great strength spots.

There's already been a couple other matches I've watched from Sekimoto that were borderline worthy of this thread so he's off to a great start.

Sekimoto the real MVP of January, as I would also add to that

1/13 - AJPW Tag Titles - Violent Giants (c) vs. Strong BJ

Strong BJ against All-Japan is always good for a fun beefy hossfest (notably their 2016 feud with The Big Guns) and this match was more of that same goodness.

Side note: even though it was for the All-Japan titles, the match occurred under the BJW banner so it's not on AJPWtv, have to watch it on Real Hero or similar site.

2/11 Jay White Vs Tanahashi
I don't think its a full MOTY but it's obviously super notable.

2/12- SD Men's Gauntlet
Kofi did a fantastic job here.

SANADA vs Suzuki from Feb. 2
I expected a fantastic match and it still was above my expectations. SANADA could be a star if pushed right.
