Nominate:

Fujita Jr. Hayato and Kenou vs. Jinsei Shinzaki and Great Sasuke (MPro 11/4)

One of the best tags from any company all year. Great Sasuke comes in looking like an old grappling jerkface who'll bend your limbs in a way they aren't meant to. The younger team throws super stiff kicks. Jinsei Shinzaki looks like an absolute stud. Yep, I think that about sums up this match.

 

Rui Hiugaji/Taro Nohashi/Riki Choshu vs. Alexander Otsuka/Jinsei Shizaki/Tatsumi Fujinami (MPro 6/30)

This is Shinzaki's 20th Anniversary match and he is the star. He does a fantastic job of selling his leg throughout the duration of the match. Otsuka is a king of offense forever and always. Oh, and Choshu gives Shinzaki his Anniversary present in the form of a stiff kick to break up a pin. He is super kind.

NOMINATE: Dragon Kid vs. Masato Yoshino 5/5 DG

 

I would argue that this is Dragon Gate's best "big match" combo. They've delivered soooo many times on big shows, and this may have been their best outing. Yoshino busts out some new offense towards the end and that was, for me, what took this to another level.

YES -11/3 Dragon Gate - Masato Yoshino vs. Naruki Doi

YES -11/7 Dragon Gate - Masato Yoshino vs. T-Hawk

 

So yeah, alot of YES's here so I won't talk about everything but I have to really push a few matches with a little more emphasis. Yoshino vs. T-Hawk, Yoshino vs. YAMATO and Saito vs. YAMATO are probably three of the ten best Dream Gate matches ever and they happened within the span of two months. All three offered something different. Saito was the plucky underdog with the odds stacked against him, T-Hawk was the future star having his breakout match and YAMATO vs. Yoshino was one of the most heated matches of the year. I also really have to pimp the 7/21 Twin Gate match which was one of the best tags of the year and the epitome of a fast paced, big spot match done well.
