August (Discussion)

Post by Rich Kraetsch » Mon Aug 31, 2015 2:12 pm

Last day of August, we'll start nominations tomorrow but in the meantime, what are your favorites of the month, what has to be on our list, what match will you be voting and supporting the most? Let's talk the best from August!

I'd personally go with All Japan or Dragon Gate. But I'm fairly certain there will be a fair few votes for BOLA.

God between G1, the Brooklyn weekend and a great EVOLVE show this is a mighty tough month.

I'm probably gonna end up with three G1 matches to be honest - the final, Ishii vs Goto and AJ vs. Tanahashi

We're internally wrestling with that right now, how many G1 matches do we add to the list and should they be graded on a different scale? We tried to keep them minimal in July just to not overwhelm the voting, in August that's going to be even tougher.

Cerebro/Virus and Styles/Tanahashi were the best matches I've seen in August.

Don't think it's fair to grade them on a different scale. They're all just wrestling matches taking place in August 2015. If the voting ends up being purely G1, then that's because they worked their asses off to deserve that.

I don't think it'll end up being only NJPW though, but that's my two cents.

The flip side of that is it ends up being kind of a boring article.

I agree. Especially because i usually use these articles to check out stuff i don't normally watch. And i did watch the entire G1. But then again, it's not the most objective and correct list, if things aren't being judged equally.

Maybe you could extend the list, and then skip write-ups of most of the G1 matches and do write ups for some of the matches that ends up a little lower on the list instead. Put a disclaimer on the top of the article, about why it's been done that way?

If not, then it's just a question if you want a fair list or a list that's an interesting read. I support whatever decision you guys make, and will enjoy the read regardless.

I mean, Sasha vs Bayley should get a lot of well deserved votes. Rollins/Cena was also excellent, and I really liked Rollins/Neville on RAW from early August.

I expect G1 to take up a lot of voting space but also Kushida/Ricochet I'd have up there. Wonder if Bucks/reDragon will get any love.

Let's not forget about Ultima Lucha Part 2. Pentagon Jr. vs Vampiro will get a lot of love I expect, though I think Puma vs Muertes was a better all around match.

Will the BOLA matches be available soon enough for voting?

BOLA won't even be close, it'll probably come out sometime in October.

Jimmyz vs Mad Blankey deserves to be on the list, just need two other guys to join me. I hope Bayley/Banks doesn't get more votes because it was more recent. I'd be shocked if Tanahashi/Nakamura doesn't win.

Can't believe I forgot Mil/Puma. So it's between three matches for me.

The G1 matches of note in August for me: Ibushi/Naito, Elgin/Honma, Okada/Nagata, Okada/Goto, Goto/Ishii, Styles/Tanahashi, Okada/Nakamura, Elgin/Ishii, Tanahashi/Nakamura (which I expect to win the month).

Oh yeah, Mike Bailey vs Chris Hero from Evolve 47, 3rd best match I've ever seen live. I'd want that to get some love.
