September Match of the Month - Nominations/Discussion

Post by TCMitchell » Thu Sep 01, 2016 2:02 pm

Let's get the MOTM talk going for September 2016!

The key point of this project is to let everyone know what great wrestling they need to be checking out! I can tell you first hand that this project has introduced me to plenty of wrestlers/promotions that I never watched previously!

So, we need YOUR nominations! If you saw a match that you think was great that took place in September 2016 or took place before September, but didn't air/make tape until September then nominate it here!

Any match that receives two nominations will be added to our voting pool at the end of the month. We then utilize a Head-to-Head (H2H for short) voting system set up by the great, Josh Engleman to determine the TOP five matches of the month which will be featured in my monthly column!

Without further ado! Tell us what matches you thought were great!


Matches that have been nominated twice thus being entered into the VOTING POOL:

-Young Bucks vs. Chris Hero & JT Dunn - PWG - THIRTEEN - 7/29/2016
-Kyle O'Reilly vs. Zack Sabre Jr. - PWG - THIRTEEN - 7/29/2016

Son Of Havoc vs Matanza from LU 9/7/16. Pretty short (about 8 minutes), but really an excellent match, especially that particular nearfall at the end. Not a MOTY contender, but why not give it a chance in MOTM contest?

Also I just watched Dar vs Sabre. I am Surprised this match isn't getting much praise. I thought it was incredible. Thatcher and Gulak should take notes. I think it's a strong MOTM candidate.

Seconded the White & Rush/Briscoes match.

Euforia & Gran Guerrero & Ultimo Guerrero vs Mistico & Volador & Valiente - CMLL Anniversary show. It's been a week since that show, so I am very surprised no one has nominated this one. Iirc Meltzer gave it **** 1/2, which is a quarter higher than me. But really an awesome match.
