Wouldn't even come close to my list as a candidate.
Absolutely he has to be in the discussion. Dude has come through time and time again and delivered big time performances. I literally just finished watching his BOLA match with Davey (**** 1/2 or 90%) and as great as that match was, he's had two this year that were better. He is currently in two of my top three MOTYs. The only person you could probably argue that would be ahead of him this year is Tanahashi. It would be insulting not to consider Elgin for WOTY.
As many good matches Elgin's had he's had just as many bad/disappointing matches with guys like Haas, Finlay, Young and Willie Mack. Elgin just doesn't have the consistency to be a WOTY option this year.
I mean, the guy hasn't gone completely nuts and put on a MOTYC every time he's stepped in the ring but I do think its hard to ignore the fact he's been in arguably two of ROH's best matches all year. If not WOTY, he's GOT to be your breakout star of the year (Adam Cole maybe could give him a run for his money in that regard).
Anyways, Steen/Generico at FB pretty much guaranteed to crack the top 5? I'd say so. Wouldn't be surprised if they produce the third ***** this year.
