Best WWE Matches 2015


Recommended Posts

Bryan vs. Ziggler from this week's Raw was better than any match from Fastlane. Terrific "I respect you bro --> fuck that, let's fight!" match with great pacing and execution.

I haven't watched the main event yet. But Sasha Banks/Becky Lynch is on this list. And it might be on the top. What an absolutely incredible match they put on. I loved how it started with Becky trying to catch the arrogant Sasha off-guard, followed by both women going after their left arms. And by the end, it was just two women throwing bombs looking for the one final blow to get it to the end -- including Becky's catch of Sasha's dive and throwing her shoulder into the ring steps. But THE BOSS saw an opening with a tired Becky on the ropes and took it for a reversal on the top into The Banks Statement tap-out.

 

This was such an awesome match -- men, women, WWE, NXT, or anywhere.

I also added Becky vs. Sasha from Unstoppable.

 

I don't know how many people will have it #1 at year's end, but I can easily see it being the most "universally loved" match.

I'd be the same. I'd rank Reigns/Lesnar from Mania top, then the next four would be separated by a hair. Reigns really has been the PPV MVP this year.

Owens' performance was A+.  The missed moonsault attempt, the superplex reversal, the promo following the match.  Dude's a star.

 

Part of dude being a star was Cena selling like a beast.

I'd probably have Sasha/Becky and Reigns/Lesnar just ahead of the pack at this point. I probably need to rewatch those two to pick a definite #1.

My top five so far, in order:

 

Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks (NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable)

Seth Rollins vs. John Cena vs. Brock Lesnar, (Royal Rumble)

Sasha Banks vs. Bayley vs. Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte (NXT TakeOver: Rival)

John Cena vs. Kevin Owens (Elimination Chamber)

Kevin Owens vs. Sami Zayn (Takeover: Rival)

 

Lurking outside the top five include Reigns/Bryan FastLane, Reigns/Lesnar/(Rollins) WrestleMania, and Owens/Neville (NXT Weekly TV)

 

Fairly standard stuff that shows up elsewhere quite a bit. I do watch the matches people pimp on the weekly TV, but nothing there stands out to me too much. I am shocked that I have a triple threat and a fatal fourway up there. The triple threat, I had a hard time placing because the Cena/Rollins part was not very good, but the beginning, where Brock wreckingballed the shit out of everyone, was so great and fresh for a triple threat that I had to place it that high.
