February (Nominations & Voting)

Post by TCMitchell » Wed Feb 10, 2016 7:41 pm

Hey guys! Thanks to those who read my first go-around with the Match of the Month project and provided feedback. It was much appreciated, especially in this stage of figuring out how to evolve the column.

We are going to bring back Josh Engleman's H2H voting system!

From now on we will be doing Match of the Month nominations throughout the month. This will expedite the process and allow us to begin voting on the first day of the following month. My column will be analyzing the results of the top 5 (and maybe plugging an honorable mention or two) with my own opinions/insight.

Matches that receive at least two nominations will be added to the voting.

This also allows for discussion/recommendations for matches to watch, as that is the point of this whole project anyways!

SO! What have been the best matches of February so far?

I second all these.

I'd also say Angle/Drew from last night's Impact. It was the 1/29 taping, but aired yesterday.

How does this work for nominations? Yuji Okabayashi (c) vs. Ryota Hama was from 1/24 but only recently showed up online.

We've always wrestled with how to handle these type of situations. Given that MOTM is just for fun and to expose new wrestling to people, I say we put it into February since like you said, it just popped up and is well deserving of praise.

I'm gonna try keep my nominations as MOTYC only, there's enough good wrestling that there should be at least one a month.

Ryoto Hama vs Yuji Okabayashi, BJW 24/01 (aired 08/02)
Isami Kodaka vs Masa Takanashi, Sweet Dreams! (aired 13/02)
HEAT UP SUPERFAN! BEST OF HEAT UP
