My top 9, because I couldn't settle on the tenth pick.

1. Kenny Omega vs Tetsuya Naito, G1 Climax, NJPW
2. Mark Andrews vs Chris Hero, Chapter 30: Super Strong Style 16, PROGRESS
3. Mark Haskins vs Will Ospreay, Chapter 33: Malice in Wonderland, PROGRESS
4. DIY vs The Revival, Takeover2:Brooklyn, WWE/NXT
5. Chris Hero vs Katsuyori Shibata, Global Wars, RevPro
6. KUSHIDA vs Will Ospreay, Invasion Attack, NJPW
7. Trent Seven vs Travis Banks, Infinity, Fight Club:Pro
8. Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada, Wrestle Kingdom 10, NJPW
9. Jimmy Havoc vs Will Ospreay, Chapter 41: Unboxing Live, PROGRESS

Number two might be purely because I was there live, number 7 encompasses the whole story leading up to it & the most fever pitch hype crowd in all of British wrestling this year (watch it if you don't believe me), felt bad about 8 being so low but it is what it is, and 9 snuck in at last minute, perfect story match in every single way, much like 3 was earlier that year.
