    I'll add John Cena vs. AJ Styles from the Royal Rumble to my list as well, they keep raising the stakes. This is the closest we have gotten to Cena/Punk land since Punk 2013.

    Right now, my top 5 would be

    1 - Kenny vs Okada from WK
    2- ZSJ vs Marty Scurll from REvPro
    3 - Naito vs Tana from WK
    4- Cena vs AJ from RR
    5 - Shibata vs Goto from WK

    ( ?_?) - 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.

    It's now my number two MOTY behind Omega Okada, it was absolutely incredible. I highly recommend people go out of their way to see it

    All you need to know really is that they used to be a tag team and best friends, and now they are enemies
    I went out of my way to see it. Amazing match. Is it my MOTY? Not sure. I'll cop out and place it in a three way tie with Tanahashi/Naito and Okada/Omega.

    Timothy Thatcher vs ZSJ from Evolve 79!!!

    Goes into my top 5, this was incredible. I am not a Thatcher fan at all and I've hated his title run, but it's all been worth it for this match.

    If you have been following Evolve for a while, this is 4 1/2 stars at least. If you don't know Evolve and have no emotional investment, the match is still 4 stars minimum by anyone's judgment based on the bell to bell stuff alone. The intensity and the varied styles of wrestling performed to a very high standard

    I hadn't seen the main event yet but Taguchi vs Takahashi was fucking outstanding and goes right into my top 10, I think it's maybe even better than the Dragon Lee match

    Takahashi is wrestler of the year at the moment

    Edit - main event was outstanding!! How am I gonna wiggle down all these great matches to a top 5?

    The 3-team match was so good. Normally a hyped Takeover match doesn't live up to things I read the night before. Even Omega/Okada didn't, but this match was amazing. Working together, the sharing of finishers all made for a great showing. My only gripe was it felt like DIY and Revival should've worked together rather than attack one another, but the commentary helped this part a lot by calling them out on it and even suggesting their own rivalry history got the better of them. Loved it and is my front runner.

    In my opinion, the only match from this entire weekend that got anywhere near MOTY was Bucks vs Hardyz.

    We had Takeover, Mania, a shit load of Indy stuff, the ROH show.

    Kind of disappointed

    Shibata vs Okada from Sakura.

    One of the greatest matches Iv ever seen. I literally have no idea how am I going to choose my MOTY, between this and the Omega match and then also the Ishii Omega match.

    And it's not even May
