It made the list! And I agree it deserves to be there!

We are now up to 24 matches! The original post with the list has been updated!

I won't get nominated since they haven't uploaded it yet on Vimeo so I'm the only one here that has seen it so far but I have to nominate it.

Marty Scurll vs Will Ospreay from wXw Superstars of Wrestling Night 1 (4/22).

If it hasn't been uploaded yet then we usually wait until next month when it is for it to be included.

Unfortunately no one else nominated this match! I did watch it though. Very good match. Daisuke Sekimoto is the man!

dancecab is exactly right! After the article for April is released I will open up nominations for May and anything that airs in May (seemingly including the match you mentioned) is fair game for nominations!

Curious though, van Fair, how would you rank this Ospreay/Scurll matches up against the rest of their catalog in 2016?



And yes! As Rich mentioned! Voting is live! http://www.voicesofwrestling.com/matchofthemonth VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!

Ok good to know. wXw should upload it fairly soon I hope.

As far as comparing it to the other Ospreay vs Scurll matches that is quite hard as experiencing it live is quite different to watching it on tape. What I can say is that I tried to downscale my expectations going into the match. This certainly did not have the stakes of their Progress match and they still managed to blow me and the whole crowd away. They actually got me with some of the nearfalls. I also had a feeling that a decent part of the crowd that had been attracted by the ex-WWE names on the card and did not know many of the other guys on the card. This match by the end had the entire crowd on the edge of the seat and the guys got a standing ovation afterwards.

Only footage out there so far is a short clip from the wXw page of the crowd going crazy.

I already know my first nomination for May. Pentagon Jr. vs Fenix at Korakuen Hall. Pentagon fans and Fenix fans CANNOT miss this one.

I've had this on my list of matches to watch and can't wait to check it out! Seeing these two wrestle in Korakuen Hall, in a completely foreign environment to the Temple is super intriguing.

Be sure to nominate it when I open up the May MOTM nom's thread. It'll probably be on Monday!

There is the link to the MOTM article for April complete with results! We received more votes this month than we have all year! So thank you to anyone who participated.

I will say though that I was disappointed that the Champion Carnival finals of Sekimoto vs. Zeus didn't receive more votes. I was really high on that match, personally.
