Re: WWE.com's Top 25 Matches of 2018
1. Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair for the Smackdown Women's Title in a Last Woman Standing Match at Evolution - Eh.
2. Johnny Gargano vs Tommaso Ciampa in a Chicago Street Fight Match at NXT Takeover Chicago - I liked this but I thought their first match was monumentally better. Both were far too long, though.
3. Brock Lesnar vs Daniel Bryan in a Champion vs Champion Match at Survivor Series - I had to watch this a second time because the fear of it being a squash hurt my live viewing, but yeah, really good stuff.
4. Moustache Mountain vs Undisputed Era for the NXT Tag Team Titles on the July 11th episode of NXT - Awesome, awesome tag. bate dicking around with the finish was lame but oh well.
5. Seth Rollins vs The Miz for the Intercontinental Title at Backlash - I remember really liking this, probably my favourite of Seth Rollins' leg hurty matches. Like above, the last few parts of the match were a shame though.
6. The Show vs Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins for the Raw Tag Team Titles at Hell in a Cell - I remember a really exciting second half, don't really remember the first half. Could use a rewatch. Hold on since when were they called "The Show"?
7. Johnny Gargano vs Cien Almas for the NXT Title at NXT Takeover Philadelphia - Like every Gargano/Ciampa this didn't need it's length but the last 2/3rds of the match are great enough to make up for most shortcomings.
8. Seth Rollins vs Roman Reigns vs John Cena vs Elias vs The Miz vs Braun Strowman in a Gauntlet Match on the February 19th episode of Raw - I am not watching this.
9. Triple H & Stephanie McMahon vs Kurt Angle & Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania 34 - The HHH v. Angle parts were kinda crappy but yeah this tag fucking rules. Shockingly great showing from Steph (though her fighting Rousey on the armbar was lmaooo) and an incredible debut for Rousey.
10. New Day vs Bludgeon Brothers in a No DQ Match for the Smackdown Tag Team Titles on the August 22nd episode of Smackdown - I don't remember this at all, might have missed it.
11. Pete Dunne vs Adam Cole vs Ricochet in a Triple Threat Match for the NXT North American Title on the October 10th episode of NXT - Not watching it.
12. Kairi Sane vs Shayna Baszler for the NXT Women's Title at NXT Takeover Brooklyn - I liked all three of their matches but I really hope their best together is yet to come.
13. Asuka vs Becky Lynch vs Charlotte Flair in a Triple Threat TLC Match for the Smackdown Women's Title at TLC - Fun? Some dumb shit in it but fun.
14. Buddy Murphy vs Mustafa Ali in a No DQ Match on the July 3rd episode of 205 Live - " It’s yet another match I’d just label as “pretty good.” " - this is what I said about.
15. Roman Reigns vs Finn Balor for the Universal Title on the August 20th episode of Raw - Hell yeah good good title match, really refreshing after a half dozen shitty Reigns matches on PPV. This is what he does best.
16. Meiko Satomura vs Mercedes Martinez at The Mae Young Classic - Awesome match, Satomura looked as good as anybody in the world. I might say it's the best match on this list.
17. Cedric Alexander vs Buddy Murphy for the Cruiserweight Title on the May 29th episode of 205 Live - THIS Buddy Murphy match I remember, and it's really good. I'd call it the best singles match on the main roster up until....god like October or something.
18. Daniel Bryan vs The Miz at SummerSlam - This was ok? Whatever I didn't care about it tbh.
19. EC3 vs Ricochet vs Adam Cole vs Lars Sullivan vs Killain Dain vs Velveteen Dream in a Ladder Match for the NXT North American Title at NXT Takeover New Orleans - Not my thing really but they're always easy to watch.
20. AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura for the WWE Title in a Last Man Standing Match at Money in The Bank - None of the matches these two had against enough was worth pretty much anything. Burn this feud.
21. Roman Reigns vs Samoa Joe for the Intercontinental Title on the January 1st episode of Raw - Was solid but they had like three matches better in 2017. If you wanted another Reigns match on here, the one with Sheamus on Raw in Feb or March was way better.
22. Kalisto vs Buddy Murphy on the April 3rd episode of 205 Live - I liked their match from August, I don't believe I saw this one.
23. Ricochet vs Velveteen Dream at NXT Takeover Chicago - I thought it was good but didn't really feel anything for it.
24. Seth Rollins vs Shinsuke Nakamura in a Champion vs Champion Match at Survivor Series - If I went around to the people who made this list and asked what was good about this, I doubt they'd even remember a single thing that happened in it. Boring and uneventful. Stop giving 20+ minutes to wrestlers who can't fill the time.
25. Bray Wyatt vs Woken Matt Hardy in The Ultimate Deletion Match - This was this year and not 2017??
