    Re: 2017 Match of the Year Thread

    Well, let's just go ahead and throw all 4 main events of Tokyo Dome in here

    ( ?_?) - 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

        Only the two main events for me. KUSHIDA/Takahashi was great but probably won't make the top 10 by the end of the year. Shibata/Goto: no chance.

                The other two matches probably will slip out, but they were still damn awesome. High intensity in both. Goto killing Shibata in that final 30 seconds was beautiful

                    Having just finished watching both matches, I actually thought Shibata/Goto was the better of the two matches. With that said, I still gotta watch Naito/Tanahashi and Okada/Omega, before coming back to this thread and posting my Match of the Year (for now).

                            Just finished watching all of Wrestle Kingdom, what an incredible show and I would like to echo the nominations for both Naito/Tanahashi and Omega/Odaka.

                            One week into the new year and it will take a lot to knock Okada/Omega off the top of the charts, that was insane.
