So to start, all of the WWE/NXT matches that I watched and rated since god knows when. I'll make a post with all the AEW, NJPW, and other matches that I had on backlog but kept forgetting to put in this thread.

NO but Recommended to Kairi Sane and Asuka (Kabuki Warriors) vs Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai - NXT 10/30/19

Asuka and Kairi just dominated Dakota for a long time, but Dakota thankfully is a real good babyface in peril, and it only helped to make Tegan’s hot tag even better when it did happen. Really liked how they did the mist spot this time, and how they had Kairi be real smart about it to hide what was happening. Pretty damn good.

***3/4

YES
to Lio Rush vs Angel Garza – NXT 11/13/19

Way better than I ever thought. Garza continues to become a star before our very eyes, he has the charism and the ability to be huge, and I love Rush being able to show off just how great and athletic a dude he is. This was a tremendous banger from start to finish with some great near falls and big spots, and I hope we get a rematch!

*****1/4

NO
but Recommended Keith Lee vs Roderick Strong - NXT 11/13/19 - ***3/4

YES
to Mia Yim vs Io Shirai - NXT 11/13/19 - ****

NO
but Recommended - Becky Lynch vs Rhea Ripley - NXT 11/20/19 - ***3/4

YES
to The Revival vs Undisputed Era (Kyle O’ Reilly and Bobby Fish) - NXT 11/20/19

A wonderful display of tag team wrestling between two of the best teams WWE has going. Fish and O’Reilly are so great at beating guys down, and they just were picking apart Wilder with precision, who was great as a babyface here (not used to that one). Dawson was a great hot tag here, and from here on it was just back and forth with everybody getting time to shine. I loved the end, with Dawson defiant despite knowing the inevitable, and just yelling at UE to kiss his ass before getting the high low. An excellent tag match, and probably the best tag match in WWE this year.

****1/2

NO
but Recommended - Keith Lee and Dominic Dijakovic vs Undisputed Era (Kyle O’ Reilly and Rodrick Strong) – NXT 11/27/19 - ***3/4

YES
to Tozawa vs Lio Rush - NXT 11/27/19

A wonderful sprint between two of the best cruiserweights in the company. Tozawa is really underrated, he almost never looks anything less than great, and Rush continues to excel as one of the better performers in the entire company. The only slip up was when Tozawa lost his mouthpiece, as I think he must have gotten lost for a second, but other than this everything about this match was great.

****

YES
to Keith Lee, Dominic Dijakovic, and Tommaso Ciampa vs Undisputed Era (Kyle O’ Reilly, Adam Cole, and Rodrick Strong - NXT 12/4/19 - ****

YES
to Adam Cole vs Finn Balor – NXT 12-18-19

A real fun match here with what you would expect from both guys. Finn is somewhat more vicious at times with how he does his moves which is a nice touch, although they really left a lot to be desired by completely ignoring Finn’s knee other than the random counters Cole would do. But they gelled quite well, and probably could have an even better Takeover match.

****

YES
to Cameron Grimes vs KUSHIDA – NXT 12-18-19

Tremendous this was, and I mean given the talent level, of course this would rule. Grimes is easing himself into NXT well, he has that rougher look to him that we don’t really have save for somebody like KOR or so. I was surprised he won, but KUSHIDA looked great and helped to make him look great in defeat.

****

NO
but Recommended - Pete Dunne vs Travis Banks - NXT 12-18-19 - ***3/4

YES
to Rhea Ripley vs Shayna Baszler – NXT 12-18-19

Yeah they had some smoke and mirrors with the chair spot, ref bump, and the two MMA chicks out to help Shayna. That being said, all of them worked wonderfully here, stacking the deck against Rhea so well to where they wanted you to believe she might not win. I thought their styles worked well, it’s not often we see Shayna be the weaker person in a match, but she was here. Rhea was a tremendous babyface, the long clutch spot was great, and the comeback was nice too. A lovely story and a great match to boot. Best NXT TV main event in some time.

And now my AEW matches!

YES to Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr & Rey Fenix) vs Private Party (Isiah Cassidy and Mark Quen) - AEW #4: 10/23/19

A wonderfully fun sprint of a tag match! Legit, I don’t think that there was any rest holds of any kind, which is impressive given the length this match was. Private Party continue to improve a ton, and it’s awesome to see them become serious deals now.

****

YES
to Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr & Rey Fenix) vs SCU (Kazarian and Scorpio Sky) - AEW #5: 10/30/19

And this was also a fun sprint that never let up. Fenix is goddamn incredible, and honestly I think Pentagon and Fenix could easily break apart and become singles guys sooner rather than later. Surprised that this ended with a roll up, but maybe they want to tease a rematch announcement next week for Full Gear. Still, really fun match.

****

YES
to PAC vs Trent? - AEW 6: 11/6/19

PAC really has been on fire since appearing in AEW, and this was just a lovely little match with PAC manhandling the best babyface in Trent (who really should go singles eventually in due time). This was great!

****
NO
but Recommended - PAC vs Adam Page - AEW #7: 11/13/19 - ***3/4

YES
to Rey Fenix vs Nick Jackson - AEW #8: 11/20/19

Nice to see Nick get a chance to have a singles match, which I don't recall ever seeing. This was just a spectacular spotfest, but in the best way. Both guys are crazy athletic, especially Fenix, and this match was just full of that. As an opening match to the show it ruled, was fun as hell to watch, and holy hell did the crowd go insane for it!

****1/4

YES
to Darby Allin vs Jon Moxley - AEW #8: 11/20/19

A great TV main event. Darby got to hang here and this was one of the times you can get over despite a loss, as he was great the entire match as the underdog babyface, even with Moxley as a babyface himself. The finish was insane, that paragdim shift off the ropes looked like it killed Darby (although a lot of moves tend to look like that with him).

****
YES
to Kenny Omega vs PAC - AEW #9: 11/27/19 - ****

NO
but Recommended - The Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson) vs Lucha Bros (Pentagon Jr and Rey Fenix) - AEW 11: 12/11/19 - ***3/4

NO
but Recommended - Kenny Omega and Adam Page vs Lucha Bros – AEW #12: 12/18/19 - ***3/4

NO
but Recommended - Jungle Boy vs Chris Jericho – AEW #12: 12/18/19

I thought this was excellent. Great babyface performance by Jungle Boy here, the interference on the outside was fun, and Jericho was a great bully. Only thing that didn’t take it to a four star match for me was the fact that Jungle Boy didn’t sell the walls of Jericho that much after sitting in it so long. Still, real fun.

***3/4

David Starr vs Jordan Devlin - OTT Fifth Year Anniversary - ****3/4

Thanks to OTT putting this one up for free, I finally got to catch up. And it certainly delivered! I was coming into this one cold as I hadn't seen their previous matches, but the fantastic video package easily gets you up to speed, and it's just a brilliant match even in its own bubble. Electric atmosphere from the word go, this gets you invested early and holds your attention. The boxing section could have been so hokey but they made it work, helped no doubt by Devlin getting busted open hard way. Great nearfalls towards the end, and a climactic finish that peaks at just the right time. Awesome stuff.

AND the NJPW matches I forgot to put in here!

YES to Birds of Prey (Will Ospreay & Robbie Eagles) vs Bullet Club (El Phantasmo & Taiji Ishimori) - NJPW :Destruction in Kagoshima

This was a really incredibly athletic sprint of a tag match that really never let up despite going over 20 minutes. Everybody came out to play here, but I think this helped Robbie the most, he looked like a valent underdog by the last quarter of the match, coming back and nearly getting the win for his team, only to be foiled by a cheap belt shot and Phantasmo being a dirty heel yet again. Some of the shit they did in this match was outrageous, I screamed at that enormous moonsault Phantasmo did over the guardrail, which was one of the most dangerous looking spots I’ve seen in a-while. Only complaint was that it could have been cut by a few minutes, but this was fantastic!

****1/2

YES
to Kota Ibushi vs KENTA – NJPW: Destruction in Kagoshima

A much different match then their G1 encounter. KENTA was just a bastard here, just destroying Ibushi early, taunting him, destroying his case, gloating to the fans, and just being the most despicable he could be. They structured this real well for the hometown audience, just havin Ibushi fight back the entire match, and he was a great babyface, although I really wanted Ibushi to sell a lot more than he did, especially his leg that KENTA worked heavily on. The interference spot got over I suppose, and the finish was nice, I always enjoy when the first reaction to somebody kicking out of their finisher is to do it again. This was pretty damn fun!

****

YES to Hirooki Goto vs Shingo Takagi – NJPW: Destruction in Kobe

Well this ruled, and given these two not much of a surprise. They had a great match back in the G1, and this was equally great, with a good first half with Shingo dominating for awhile, only to have a superplex of all moves wake up Goto. From there, they just starting throwing bombs at one another and kept a real hot pace till the end. Just watching both of them smash into one another for dominance was tremendous, and both these guys rule.

YES to Jay White vs Tetsuya Naito – Destruction in Kobe

Their chemistry is improving rapidly, the last 10 minutes of this was stellar and full of counters, especially with White living to his gimmick and somehow snaking his way out of so many destinos. Speaking of White, he was an utter prick all match, just playing mind games and taunting Naito, trash talking all match, and really he’s becoming easier to hate every match, which is awesome. Natio looked real good here too, he’s had some matches recently where he just looked tired, but he looked better. If anything, they went a little long, and at times had some odd pacing, but it was real good.

****1/4

YES to Minoru Suzuki vs Jushin Thunder Liger – NJPW: Kings of Pro Wrestling

A wondrous match, nothing overly complex, just a story about two guys who wanted to do in there and kill one another. Plenty of great emotion, some real great sequences, and Liger just playing the greatest babyface here, man this was so great. Not bad for two dudes in their 50s.

****1/4

YES to El Phantasmo vs Will Ospreay - NJPW: Kings of Pro Wrestling

There was a lot of good in this match. Phantasmo doing clean wrestling for a while was great, all of the stuff that they did outside the ring was great, and some of the stuff they did was cool as hell. There are some spots that I’ve seen Ospreay do plenty of time, but for the most part it still made for a very good match. Biggest thing I have against it is that it went too long and they seemed to get quite disjointed at the end.

****

NO
but Recommended - Kota Ibushi vs EVIL – NJPW: Kings of Pro Wrestling

The only negative this had against it for me is that it was obvious who was winning, so buying into some of the near falls was near impossible. That being said, they had a red hot ending third to this match and I thought it ended up really good by the end.

***3/4

YES
to Will Ospreay&Robbie Eagles vs Taiji Ishimori&EL Phantasmo – NJPW: Road to Power Struggle – Tag 1 - ****

YES
to Tomohiro Ishii vs KENTA – NJPW Power Struggle 2019

What a goddamn war! I think this may be one of KENTA’s best matches since coming in, and he works wonders here with Ishii as they just laid in with some of their strikes. Just stiffness all around, and I felt like they were even laying it in there even more than usual at times. It was awesome with some back and forth between them, Ishii doing his awesome fighting spirit spots as always, and it was fun to see him face somebody who could match him and take as much punishment. A tremendous match!

****1/2

YES
to Will Osperay vs BUSHI – NJPW: Power Struggle 2019

Might be my favorite BUSHI match ever. This was awesome, full of great action and some real great spots with the mist. Ospreay actually taking the mist from BUSHI by kissing him basically was hilarious and awesome at the same time, great spot. And the entire last section of this match was red hot. Awesome match!

****1/4

YES
to El Phantasmo vs SHO – NJPW: Showdown in San Jose

Man there was a TON of heat here. I haven’t seen SHO in awhile, he still feels like he’s on the cusp of being a huge star, and he was a great babyface here. ELP continues to be a great dick, just using every trick in the book here to win, and sealing it with a straight low blow punch, not something I see too much. The Ishimori and YOH involvement was great too, and the ref bump was played really well too. Great match!

****1/4

YES
to Taichi and Zack Sabre Jr. vs Lance Archer and Minoru Suzuki – NJPW: World Tag League – Tag 2

Normally I don’t pay much attention to world tag league, and then all of a sudden we get this hectic chaotic wonderfulness. This was a complete WAR from the start, from Taichi and Suzuki basically trying to destroy one another in the best brawl ever, Sabre trying to match the teach going against Suzuki as they traded strikes and then counters, and Archer going fucking crazy against everybody and everything (including poor Miho). This was so goddamn fun, way better than it had any right to be too. Loved this.

****1/2

YES
to Tomohiro Ishii and Will Osperay vs EVIL and Hiromu Takahashi – NJPW: Road to the Tokyo Dome – Tag 3

Hell of a sprint this was at times. Ishii and Evil was fun in that it was just every great brawl these two always have, but the Osperay and Hiromu stuff was electric and spectacular, and only made me even more excited to see them later on. A great match to build up to WK.

****1/4

And... well everything else!

YES to WALTER vs JD Drake – EVOLVE 135

Just the best mean guy match as they beat the absolute piss out of one another. Both guys just chopped one another like mad, and their chemistry was great, it’s been awhile since I saw JD Drake, and he’s still damn good, and even underrated.

****

YES to Timothy Thatcher vs Eddie Kingston – Beyond Uncharted Territory (Season 2, Episode 2)

A wonderful struggle this was, with Kingston just being the most resilient dude ever here while Thatcher continues being a brutal technical wizard, as he angrily snarled and dominated Kingston throughout. It would be nice to see two dudes with these kinds of styles more often, this was a nice treat to watch. Also, I don’t even know what the promo he cut at the end entailed, but I never watched Kingston much, and I get why people think he’s a tremendous promo.

****

YES to Teddy Hart vs Austin Aries – MLW Superfight

Great back and forth match with an easy babyface/heel dynamic. Aries obviously is a great heel, and I think it helps that he just oozes arrogant douchebag energy throughout this match. Hart was a wonderful babyface who kept going for bigger moves to try and seal the deal, and this just was really nice. Only thing I could say is that it was a bit long. But it was cool for a destroyer to finish a match.

****

YES to Timothy Thatcher vs Filthy Tom Lawlor – MLW Superfight

A tremendous match between two hard-nosed guys. Thatcher always looks great, it was awesome watching him and Lawlor on the mat as they worked submissions. Loved Lawlor just chopping the hell out of Thatcher too, especially with his reactions which are always great. The ending to this ruled too, with Thatcher just choking out a blooded Thatcher. Wonderful.

****1/4

YES
to Jacob Fatu vs LA Park – MLW Superfight

I forgot the last time I was impressed as I am on first viewing than Fatu. Dude is a big, bad, athletic as fuck samoan who reminds me so much of peak Umaga in the best way possible. Also, no idea LA Park was in his mid 50s with some of what he did in this match. This was a brutal, bloody war between two dudes who beat the shit out of one another. I loved just all of this, the interference was done really well, the brawling was great, and man that moonsault Fatu does is nothing sort of beautiful. Wonderous, and I see a huge future in store for Fatu.

****1/2

My entire MOTYC listing will follow shortly as I get it in order!

So FINALLY here are my 2019 MOTYs. I did all my * and ****3/4 in order, but everything else is not.

1. Daniel Bryan vs Kofi Kingston - WWE Wrestlemania 34 - * * * * *

Sometimes WWE actually indirectly does a great storyline, and the whole underdog storyline with Kofi was stellar. This match was the climax of this, just an otherworldly wonderful match with a molten crowd, and Daniel Bryan being the best version of himself he could be. He was the best vicious heel, all the way down to the stomps to the face, but Kofi was with him every step of the way. This had the great wrestling, the tremendous story, the pacing was top, just EVERYTHING came together in a perfect little bow. Amazing.

2. Jon Moxley vs Tomohiro Ishii - NJPW: G1 Climax 29 - Tag 6 - * * * * *

We got flying Ishii... LITERALLY. This was the best brawl of a match, wild from the moment the bell rang, and did lot let up in the slightest at any point. This was the kind of match where I was sitting watching it with the biggest giddy smile on my face because of how awesome it was. The counters ruled, the near falls ruled, Moxley cemeted himself as a great wrestler thanks to finally leaving WWE, and Ishii continues his legendary G1 runs. This fucking rocked.

3. Shingo Takagi vs Tomohiro Ishii - NJPW: G1 Climax 29 - Tag 16 - * * * * *

We know both their styles. Now have them face each other. They beat the holy shit out of one another in the best possible way. It was a WAR in giant capital letters. Just go watch it if you haven't, I can't give it justice talking about it.

4. WALTER vs Tyler Bate - WWE NXT UK Takeover: Cardiff - ****3/4

This was incredible. Bate was just the best resilient babyface to WALTER, while he just beat down and dominated Bate over and over again, but it wasn't enough to keep Bate down for long enough. The david/goliath feel was immense, the vibe was intense, and just everything about this was pretty damn insane. It went over 40 minutes, and the one slight gripe it it went a fraction too long, but man other than that, I have almost nothing to complain about and instead could just gush about it.

5. SANADA vs Kazuchika Okada - NJPW: G1 Climax 29 - Tag 13 - ****3/4

Their other matches were all just pretty damn good, but for some reason, this one was nearly perfect when all was set and done. Just paced brilliantly down to the last few seconds, it was built up steadily the entire way through. SANADA looked like a huge star here, matching Okada move for move, and slowly but surely convinced the fans he could win. The incredibly long Skull End spot was wonderfully done, and SANADA getting the win in the end was just icing on the cake.

6. Will Ospreay vs Shingo Takagi - NJPW: Best of the Super Juniors - Finals - ****3/4
7. Kenny Omega vs Hiroshi Tanahashi NJPW: Wrestle Kingdom 13 - ****3/4
8. Jay White vs Kota Ibushi NJPW: G1 Climax 29: Tag 19 - ****3/4
9. Kazuchika Okada vs Tomohiro Ishii NJPW: New Japan Cup 2019 - Day 11 - ****3/4

11. Will Ospreay vs Kazuchika Okada NJPW: G1 Climax 29: Tag 7 - ****3/4
12. Will Osperay vs Hiroshi Tanahashi NJPW: G1 Climax 29: Tag 17 - ****3/4
13. Minoru Suzuki vs Kazuchika Okada NJPW: Royal Quest - ****3/4
