I think Ricochet had a decently down year, were as Jack was generally one of the high points of every show he was on. Doesn't have tons of high end matches, but he was constantly a major reason why I watch 205 Live even when most people stopped giving a shit.

I'm sorry, but I just find Gallagher ridiculously entertaining.

There weren't enough adequate Prince Puma moments this year to counter the consistent awesomeness of Jack Gallagher's headbutt.

This does not mean that I don't love Ricochet like family.

I went with Ricochet because...well, why not?  You really can't go wrong on this one.

Gallagher has quickly become one of my favorite performers.

Jack Gallagher got his very own "get to knowing this guy" thread last year. It didn't have dumpster fire in the title.

I still don't like the Daivari feud, but I'm making amends for voting Cesaro/Sheamus and then regretting it after the evidence was presented.

Rippa is right, y'all. Don't vote too early unless you're 100% sure.

The Daivari feud was awesome and the "I Forfeit" match was a hidden gem of early 205live before it started hitting its stride.  There are reasons to vote against Jack but that feud sure isn't one of them.

I'm sorry but I respectfully disagree. While Jack, as a character, was fun, the matches (outside of the aforementioned I Forfeit match which was excellent) were really pedestrian and were threatening to drive Jack into a rut of signature spots and little else.

I think Riccochet gets pretty severely underrated around here. I need to dig more into what he has going on during the voting period to be sure, but as for whose matches I would rather watch, on the whole, it's an easy choice for me.

Gallagher is a very good wrestler, so I may be on the wrong side of history, but I am betting in six months when he's stuck as the third Vaudevillain, there's going to be a real severe cooling off on him.

I love wen these arguments come up. Who cares man? Maybe that's true. That doesn't change that he's a fantastic wrestler (we have plenty of evidence to support that claim) who had a really good year and was a constant high point on the shows he was on.

Gallagher also receives credit for using an umbrella as a prop and NOT looking like a douche while doing it. That's why he's here and that other guy lost by 70.

Apropos of nothing, were this just based on ability and not usage per company stature and gimmick, I'd have a hard time voting against Simon Gotch versus a lot of people.

Is there a standout C-show Gotch match?

I wish I had an answer. I'd say it's likely but I haven't watched them like I should. I should go back and see. I saw a good house show match with them and Alpha, anyway.

I'm always just really into how he works, even if it's only for a few minutes. He has a unique but believable way he moves and gets into position to take offense. His moveset is kinda basic, but he hits hard, looks good in what he does do, His facials are a little cartoony sometimes but it fits the gimmick and he seems like a genuine fighter.

I watched 205 live because of Jack Gallagher. I like Ricochet, but Gallagher has been a revelation since the CWC...
