That's a good resource list. 

 

Edit: Apparently Cena/Sandow was the night after HIAC, not Survivor Series, leading to me looking for the wrong date. Good, complete list.

That's a good resource list. The only match missing is the Cena/Sandow MITB cash-in the Raw after Survivor Series. Cena was in 07 form with his selling and the MITB history gave the nearfalls some serious weight. I would've been jump-out-of-seat surprised at a couple of them were it not for the Cena/Orton ppv-closing staredown the night before. Even Sandow, who's normally pretty boring, ratcheted up the intensity a lot here for easily his best career match.

That will likely be Sandow's best match of his career. I didn't think he'd win it at the start and by the end I was sure he'd get a 3 week reign.

If that's the match on 28 October then that has been included - I would agree that it is his best match, although from this year there were a couple of fun sprints vs Cody from Summerslam and the TV afterwards (not on the list), and a few good ones against Sheamus (one of which did make the list). Incidentally I think Sheamus really made Sandow look his equal in those matches, and he is pretty good at doing that in general when working with people just below him....

It's a shame Sheamus was out of action after the Money in the Bank 2013 PPV and we didn't see more of him in the year.

 

He should be pretty fresh when he coems back though.

I kind of hate the Bryan Gauntlet or at least the Cesaro portion of the Gauntlet didn't make the set.

 

I love that Bryan/Cesaro match. Best TV match of the year and finished in my top three for WWE Match of the Year.

 

 

It's a shame Sheamus was out of action after the Money in the Bank 2013 PPV and we didn't see more of him in the year.

Agreed. I look forward to his return. Hopefully Sheamus's 2014 will be at the level of his 2012.

Kofi also had the great ME match with Cesaro and was a solid rotational guy in Shield 6-mans during the spring. The Hell No/Kofi/Shield match I saw live in Kansas City was one of the best Shield formula tags of the year.

 

Yeah, he's painfully boring 90% of the time, but he's still good for a couple fun matches a year. A poor man's Del Rio, really.

I loved the main event gauntlet with Wade killing a bunch of a jobbers only to get kicked in the fucking mush by Kofi. Great angle that no one but me and like 4 other people saw.

I'll put this in for Best Promo of the Year.

 

Ok, after seeing that promo AND the Doctor Who Christmas episode, I want, no, DEMAND that Regal lose an epic war of a match, regenerate into a young, lethal English shooter and destroy his opponent. Legit, he just did in two minutes what some guys never EVER learn to do in months of angles and skits, make me give a shit.
