    I'm almost certainly in the minority, but I think cheating of the feet on the ropes/fistful of tights variety should be done away with. When every sport is incorporating instant replay to minimize human error, having such blatantly tainted finishes makes wrestling look behind the times.

    On a similar note, I've been watching quite a bit of 92-93 Flair lately, and what struck me was the quality of his arm work. Dude could work an arm like an Anderson when he wanted to, which makes sense since they were kayfabe cousins. Also, 1993 Rick Rude is due for a re-evaluation. Conventional wisdom states that he fell off a cliff after his neck injury, but I'm not finding that to be the case at all. In particular, the Iron Man match with Dustin Rhodes has been unfairly maligned.

    I must confess that I haven't done a deep dive into the Mero oeuvre, but I'm a big fan of the KOTR match with Austin. Then again, 1996 Austin might be my favorite wrestler of all time. He even had a good match with Hunter Hearst Helmsley.

    Cena/Umaga my dudes.

    For a more outside-the-box pick, I'll go with Sekimoto/Okabayashi vs. Akebono/Hama on January 3. Power wrestler vs. fat wrestler is pretty much an idiot-proof matchup. It's on Ditch's website.

    Multi-man elimination tag matches are the best thing about 80s New Japan, and this is my favorite of the bunch.
  8. 1991 is shaping up to be the Hardcore Title of MOTY picks.
  9. 1963

    The only other complete match I know of from that year is Destroyer/Rikidozan.

    Or a Downward Spiral, to complete the holy trinity of geek finishers.

    The Maharaja of Strong Style.

    Come on, guys. If you're not positively giddy at the prospect of Jinder Mahal having a world title match in Chicago, I feel sorry for you. It's going to make the crowd reaction to Goldberg/Lesnar at WM20 look like a 1986 Crockett crowd.

    Holy hell, I can't believe I let this match slip my mind. You can be sure you're watching greatness when little old ladies in the audience are so enraged that they're storming the ring.

    You'll get no argument from me on this pick. The RWTL final is an all-time top 15 match for me. I'd like to throw out El Dandy vs. Pirata Morgan as a worthy challenger, but it doesn't seem to be online anymore. Instead, I'll nominate my pick for the best sub-10:00 match of all time.

    Jones and Rocco wrestled each other like a million times, and this was probably their best match together. I'm a really big fan of Rocco. He was one of the pioneers of working a more fast-paced brawling style.
