    Default PW's Match of the Year 2016 Tournament



    The running 'Match of the Year' threads in the Wide World of Wrestling sub-forum has been one of the richest resources on PW for discussing the years best matches and unearthing hidden gems that you otherwise wouldn't have come across. This year, after talking through the idea with the moderators, I want us to decide which of those matches that we have loved during 2016 is considered PW's true Match of the Year for 2016. To decide this we have two stages.

    1. The Nominations


    This is your chance to nominate the 10 matches you feel are the finest from 2016. They can be from any promotion in the world as long as they took place in 2016.

    PM me a list of your Top 10 matches of 2016 in order by the 8th January 2017. To make life easier for me, I'd appreicate them in the following format:

    Wrestler(s) vs. Wrestler(s); Any Stipulations/Titles on the line; Promotion; Event; Date

    Through these lists, points will be earned, with the number 1 ranked match on your list receiving 10 points, number 2 getting 9 and so forth.


    2. The Knockout Tournament

    After all of the lists are tallied, I will use a randomiser to place the top 16 into a straight knockout tournament to decide PW's 2016 Match of the Year.


    I hope people take part in this and that we get a wide range of matches and promotions represented. Come on down and submit your nominations!

    With Tonal Nonstop Deletion and Roadblock having taken place, we're unlikely to get many more MOTY contenders, so go ahead and start assembling your lists:

    @HilaryFan @CM Punk'd @Knox @milopo @Big Pete @Ed @theshape31 @patrick94 @Ness @Engel @Jay Lethal @SM? @Emperor @Falcone @Pinkman @The Dazz @The Main Event @Djm @Strobe @Saffron Warrior @Peepshow @Raven* @LS @Lony @Michinokudriver @Oncall @Matt @Todd @Lawrence @Sea Slug @Mistress @whocares @Stefan @nazzer @The Show @Krimzon @T-Bone @StunVKMcmahon

    Will have to watch as many matches outside of WWE as I can before I make this list.

    Good man - thought don't be put off by not having seen anything - your ten is just a nomination.

    Submitted....thanks to the forum by the way. Got a lot of entertainment by looking at the MOTY thread over the year. I don't get to watch NJPW or ROH much, so I'll try to pick matches getting rave reviews.

    4 NJPW matches in my top 10
    4 WWE matches in my top 10
    2 NXT matches in my top 10
    1 ROH match that I debated putting in over my #10

    I like my list though, it's truly the matches that entertained me the most this year.

    I encourage this but also want to add that if you only watch WWE (or any other company) don't feel like you can't hand in a list. You like what you like and damn anyone that says otherwise.

    Example: I know there were matches in Lucha Underground worthy of a MOTY title but I don't watch it so none are on my list. Do I care? No. If I did I'd watch Lucha Underground in the first place.

    This is where I line up. I'm pretty much am exclusively with WWE/NXT now and my list is dominated there.

    Making my list now and I only have 1 match that's absolutely a lock for the top of my list. It's going to be hard cutting down on a bunch of matches.

    - 3 EVOLVE matches
    - 3 NXT matches
    - 2 NJPW matches
    - 1 PWG match
    - 1 CWC match

    This is what my list consisted of. I'm not surprised as my wrestling watching was sporadic this year, and only caught the events of cards I was most interested it. Most of the so happened to be both EVOLVE and NXT.

    Yes please! I've had three lists so far and they are sparse of WWE matches - so it's ok to get a list dominated with WWE matches.

    If the list ends up too WWE heavy I can always put a limit on the amount of WWE matches in the top 16 to try and increase diversity. But I'll see how the lists ends up before I consider that option.

    I'll definitely try and get a top ten list put together before the deadline, I've a few more matches that I need to watch, but that shouldn't be a problem.

    Unfortunately, that's what I'm going to have to do. I don't have the time to watch much wrestling outside the WWE.

    I will try to get my list in tonight. It's going to be really, really hard not including some matches that have been outstanding


    Edit


    16 matches that I need to cut down. Mostly NJPW but a few LU, a couple NxT, one from PWG and one from RPW

    Edit 2

    Ok I have my ten, I will order them later.

    Here are the honourable mentions that just missed out:

    Speedball Mike Bailey vs Will Ospreay RPW

    Bola Night 2 six man tag main event

    'No Mas' match from Lucha Underground

    Kamitaichi vs Dragon Lee from NJPW CMLL

    Rey vs Puma from Lucha Underground

    Naito vs Elgin from G1 Climax

    ( ?_?) - 97% of PW suddenly think Michael Cole is awesome. If you're part of the 3% that still thinks he is an annoying tool, copy & paste this into your sig.

    Currently Playing: Suikoden 1, Max Payne 1, Beyond Good and Evil, MGS Peace Walker

    I had a very hard time cutting my list down to 10. I started from 30 and had to move down and STILL feel like I may want to change my list. It's very NXT/WWE heavy but some of the ones that just missed my cut (the absolute hardest ones to not include) include:

    - Ambrose vs Reigns vs Rollins;
    - Miz vs Owens vs Zayn vs Cesaro
    - Ambrose vs Owens (Last Man Standing Match)

    Is there any reason why we're being so secretive?

    I'd like to see some recommendations before I submit a list. I've watched through a lot of WWE, NJPW, NXT, PWG & TNA. Are there any obvious Indie matches I should check out? What about the smaller promotions in Japan or other international scenes?

    I watched a Mask vs Mask match from IWRG featuring Canis Lupis & Trauma which maybe the best brawl I've seen this year. The third fall in particular stands out as one of the most gripping segments I've seen in Pro Wrestling this year.

    CWF's Trevor Lee vs Roy Wilkins maybe the best 'epic' I've seen this decade. It's a slog at 100 minutes, but I've sat through Tanahashi-Okada matches that felt longer.

    As much as I love wrestling...I don't think I could sit through a 1 hour, 40 minute match

    Didn't think anyone would top the Punk Hero 90 minute match. Now I wanna hunt this other match out for morbid curiosity.
