June (Nominations)

Post by Rich Kraetsch » Wed Jul 01, 2015 2:56 pm

Nominations are now live at http://www.voicesofwrestling.com/match- ... minations/. Use this thread to post what matches you nominated (links appreciated!)

----
June is in the books and here at Voices of Wrestling that means it's time for Match of the Month voting. If you aren't familiar with our process or this countdown, please check out our previous month's lists at http://www.voicesofwrestling.com/catego ... the-month/.

The goal of this project is to prepare people for our Match of the Year poll at the end of the year and ensure that nobody is left out in the dark on the best pro wrestling, no matter where in the world it happened. The basic process is matches are nominated by VOW staff members and fans of the site. All of these matches are then entered into a database for use in ELO H2H voting done again by VOW staff, fans and anyone else who finds the link.

This voting system gives you two matches at a time to vote on. You choose which match you thought was better or pass if you aren't familiar with the matches. (The goal here is to make yourself familiar with both matches if you aren't already).

Once you're done voting for that H2H matchup, two other matches are selected at random. When it's all said and done, matches are ranked by how many H2H matchups they won.

Please list at least one of your Matches of the Month below and please specify in what wrestling promotion the match occurred and the date of the match.

Last but not least, we've had some questions over the last few months about what matches count in which month. If the match AIRED in June or took place in June, it counts for June. For Match of the Year purposes, we'll use the actual match date but in the case of, say, Lucha Underground Puma vs. Mundo's All Night Long match would count for June as it aired in the month, even if it was taped months prior.

Happy voting!

**Nominations will be accepted until Sunday, July 5 at 10pm EST**

Rose vs. Breeze is a hot take (even though you've made it before).

Match was better than Young Bucks & Styles vs Kingdom. By far. So, why not.

I can definitely see that argument, even though I don't personally see either of them as MotM level matches. Breeze vs. Rose was definitely surprisingly good.

Just to clarify for everyone, you need to nominate matches through http://www.voicesofwrestling.com/match- ... minations/

This links to a Google spreadsheet which makes it way easier to keep track of on our end.

Added three matches that probably won't get as much love as some, but they definitely should.

Kyle O'Reilly vs Gedo - NJPW 06/05 ****1/2
Roman Reigns vs Sheamus - WWE 06/22 ****1/4
Conor Claxton vs DJ Hyde vs Nick Gage (Fans Bring The Weapons) - CZW 06/13 ****

Would definitely recommend anyone voting should watch these three matches, all great stuff right here.

This is also my list. Kairi Hojo vs Meiko may have replaced Sasha Banks vs Becky Lynch as my female match of the year. Just tremendous.
