July (Nominations)

Post by Rich Kraetsch » Fri Jul 31, 2015 9:19 pm

We're a day away from the end of the month and of course around these parts that means it's time for Match of the Month.

July is going to be absolutely INSANE. We'll have details on how to nominate your favorites tomorrow but for the purposes of discussion, what's on your list for July?

BEST OF THE BEST, PEOPLE.

Remember that when nominating for MOTM. BEST OF THE BEST. Even if a month has 75 great matches, the scale has to change. We want the CREAM OF THE CROP.

- The Briscoes vs. Roppongi Vice ; Death Before Dishonor XIII - 7/24

NJPW:
- Katsuyori Shibata vs. Kazushi Sakuraba ; Dominion 7.5 - 7/5
- KUSHIDA vs. Kenny Omega ; Dominion 7.5 - 7/5
- Kazuchika Okada vs. AJ Styles ; Dominion 7.5 - 7/5

Well i thought it was good. Maybe not MOTM, but outside of the finish, i thought it was a really solid match. I probably wouldn't include it in the list of nominations, but i just wanted to write down the best matches from each promotions.

I'm amazed. Every review I've seen has it under ***

There was an awful lot of good stuff this month (probably too much to successfully digest and remain even handed) but for the sake of narrowing it down I think my top 10 would be along these lines:

NJPW
Kushida V Kenny Omega (Dominion)
AJ Styles V Okada (Dominion)
Tanahashi V Ibushi (G1 Night 1)
AJ Styles V Ibushi (G1 Night 5)
Shibata V Ibushi (G1 Night 7)

Dragon Gate
Tozawa V Eita (Kobe World)

Evolve
Zack Sabre Jr V Roderick Strong (Evolve 45)

WWE
Kevin Owens V Finn Balor (Beast in the East)
Cena V Cesaro (Raw 7/6)

ROH
Roderick Strong V Jay Lethal (Death Before Dishonor)

I don't expect this to get as much love, but damn it, I can campaign for it. Ospreay vs Scurrl from Rev Pro TV. I go ****1/4 on it.

I enjoyed that one quite a lot, and I'm usually the guy in VoW HQ arguing for the UK matches, but for me in a deep month like this July it doesn't quite make the cut. I went ***3/4 on it, but it was very close to ****. Feel free to nominate it though, if others feel the same way it'll make its way onto the vote.

This has been the deepest month of the year. No doubt.

Don't let Obayashi vs Sekimoto fall by the wayside, either!

I voted as hard as I could for Sekimoto/Okabayashi, if it doesn't crack top 5 I'll be disappointed with everyone.
