Recommended Posts

2018 was NXT's greatest year putting on classics and there were some main roster bouts that delivered too. Hope it's a memorable year.

You'll likely be in the majority. My 2018 list was so main roster heavy that anyone who read it probably thought I was nuts.

On a first watch, I think Andrade vs. Rey Mysterio, two out of three falls from last night's Smackdown Live is my new WWE Match of the Year knocking Andrade vs. Mysterio from last week's Smackdown into second place. Great match, first time I've seen Mysterio do the West Coast Pop in WWE in ages.

Amazing Rey Mysterio can do what he can with the repeat knee injuries and age, he has a deep back catalogue. Andrade is so crisp with his bumping, he can do it all inside the ring.

I know he got a bunch of rest while working indies and what not, but Jesus Christ, Rey's knees were shot a decade ago, and now he's literally moving around and hitting spots like 1996.

It's that stem cell treatment.  Apparently Golddust has done it recently too.

  1. Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade Cien Almas -  SDL 1/15~~~~~Rey Mysterio vs. Andrade Cien Almas - SDL 1/22
  2. Mustache Mountain vs. Gibson/Drake - Takeover: Blackpool 1/12
  3. Pete Dunne vs. Joe Coffey - Takeover: Blackpool 1/12
  4. Fabian Aichner/Marcel Barthel vs. Mark Andrews/Flash Morgan Webster 1/17
  5. Charlotte/Becky/Carmella - SDL 1/8

I can't decide between Rey/Almas matches. EU vs. Andrews/Webster from last week's UK TV was so damn good and makes me sad it wasn't EU in Gibson/Drake's place at Takeover Blackpool.

I told you all 1-2/EU was great. I was legit jumping up on the bleachers at Full Sail.

The fact that he looked more fluid in 2019 than it did in 1999, is the truly amazing part.  He must trust Andrade completely because he really sold out on that hurricarana.

There has been a ton of throwback Rey spots in the series with Andrade he hasn't done since he dropped the mask to Nash.

The rebound powerbomb Andrade hit on him, for example, is a throwback to his match with Ultimo Dragon at World War 3.

Also the springboard huracanrana got a big pop from me as I loved that as his finisher in WCW and I haven't seen him do it in ages.

So in reality those top five I actually rate all around the same. Right now its just preference of the match style at the moment that I suspect could change around at any point depending on my mood and potential rewatches.

Want to watch Asuka/Lynch and Rousey/Banks again. I have viewed Lesnar/Balor back and like it just as much when it went out live.

Trimmed my list to matches I could consider for legit MOTYC and removed the rest that I thought were good, not great as I don't want to clog the thread with an extensively long list.
