“In 2018 WALTER introduced himself to the world and WWE snapped him up. This was a disappointing turn up for the books. It seemed as if our only exposure to WALTER in 2019 would be in familiar pastures. When we heard about this Big Japan match happening, while we were in Germany, it was exactly the kind of thing we were hoping for before WALTER signed for WWE. WALTER unleashed in Japan. Going nuts with the chops and the big boy business against two of the best Japan has to offer. An absolutely fantastic match that brought a massive smile to my face. I only wish WALTER could do things like this more often.” Arnold Furious

“With the deluge of weekly wrestling available in 2019, Uncharted Territory was always one I went out of my way for their capacity to put together a match you maybe hadn’t thought of, and blow the roof off the place. I was delighted this match got to happen before Mercedes set off for WWE, because her and Starr beat the absolute hell out of each other. I don’t have any scorching takes on intergender wrestling, except to say that like every type of wrestling, when it is done well it’s fantastic. And this was done very, very well.” Dave Ryan

“Kento Miyahara is my wrestler of the year. In a year that had some of the best wrestling I’ve seen in ages, he was the king for me. With how amazing Will Ospreay was this year, having banger after banger, going into one of the best matches of the year with Shingo, who came into New Japan and became a star in short order, watching both men have amazing Super Junior and G1 Climax runs, were tough competition for Kento. Ospreay showed how he can go with anyone with the classic against Archer, and Shingo showing he can bring a old dog into the spreadsheet territory with Kojima at Dominion, Kento did this same thing but with the man who was in this match. Naoya Nomura. Kento Miyahara took a company and made it must see for every big show main event. He took a guy with the charisma of a shoe in Jake Lee, and made him a believable opposite that most thought would win the strap from him at Korakuen a couple weeks ago. He went into the Champions Carnival and took everyone with him to the next level, including making Gianni Valletta look respectable. He went to Osaka a year after putting over Zeus, and still managed to make you think it would happen again. He went toe to toe with the Ace of New Japan in February at the Baba show and got the pop, as the fans boo’d Tana. He did everything. Including making a star, and the man who should win the Champions Carnival this year and go on and beat Kento.

Naoya Nomura.

This match did so much for Nomura that I truly believe they had him last into a playoff with Jake Lee and make him a legit threat to win, whereas before that wasn’t the case. The performance was enough to make him a legit player that if they pull the trigger, he can be the Champ. This match showed such a great story with Nomura being the underdog that doesn’t quit, continues to kick out of everything, and fight for existence. He found ways to escape the Shutdown German, avoiding every attempt at the go. Nomura kicks out of a Black Out knee on a 1 count which got the crowd 100% ready for a wild finish that shocked everyone. Heavy strikes back and forth, and then finally Nomura hits a spear, and lands the DVD to a 2.99 count that people thought they were going to have a new Champion going into the Carnival. Korakuen was losing their mind at this point. Finally, Nomura just didn’t have enough to finish the job as Kento went into his final stretch and closed out the valiant effort from Nomura.

The handshake refusal at the end made it that much better. We now saw Nomura in a new light and as someone who can be the guy. This match hit so many levels of greatness that I couldn’t imagine anything over it for 2019. The fact it followed up the fantastic tag between Strong BJ and Violent Giants and was able to make that feel like an afterthought was the sealer. I’ve given this four watches now, and every time I find something else to appreciate about it.” Ryan Cooke

Ben-K vs Masaaki Mochizuki
10/8
Dragon Gate

Overall Points: 32
Total Votes: 5
Highest Vote: 2nd

“Masaaki Mochizuki turned 50 on January 17th. I feel like I start all his captions with that, but what Mochizuki has done in his late 40s was legendary. No wrestler at his age has wrestled that full-contact style night in, and night out, to his level he has. I’ve stopped waiting for Mocchy’s decline. I fully expect one day for him to just say “I’m done” or sadly pass away. It took me a while to come around to Case Lowe’s point, but now I fully believe that Masaaki Mochizuki is one of the best ten in-ring wrestlers of all time.

This Dream Gate match is another one where his legacy is carved into stone. Ben-K came into this match as a conquering force, steamrolling everyone over the summer including getting the first fall on PAC in almost two years. For years, Dragon Gate was desperately attempting to create their star for the new generation, and in three short months, they had it in Ben. A year before, Ben-K challenged Mocchy for this very belt in his first-ever Dream Gate title shot, and now he was the champion.

The match itself is one that I constantly replay in my head. Mochizuki’s precision focus on Ben’s arm. Socking Ben-K in the mouth as a way to get out of a pinning situation. But the thing that’s etched into my mind is the way Ben-K won the match. A brutal headbutt that led to blood trickling down his face. You see, you can try to fight against time, like Masaaki Mochizuki has successfully done, but you can’t fight against a headbutt at the end of a war.” Mike Spears

“In my opinion the most underrated match of the year. This match started off the greatest NXT Takeover show ever. This card was stacked from top to bottom and every single match delivered. This match was non stop action and the crowd was absolutely insane for the whole thing. The strike exchanges between Black and Rowe and the ridiculous high flying offense of Ricochet. This match was an NXT Classic and it’s very slept on. A fantastic farewell for Black and Ricochet who would of course go on to do lesser things on the “main roster.”” Noveliss

“A walk-and-brawl that was better than it had any right to be, as Chris Jericho continues to evolve and adapt to his aging body, and Naito continues to be a brilliant professional wrestler. The moment where Naito found himself face-to-face with his old nemesis, the Intercontinental title, was better storytelling than any book, and I should know because I’ve read every book that’s ever been written (test me!). If they ever write one better than this tale of Naito and his hated white belt, let me know.” Joel Abraham

“No feud embodied the continued strife in the European independent scene like the one in OTT between Jordan Devlin and David Starr. While the feud would be expertly molded into one of conflicting ideologies, this first match was simpler and, in my opinion, more effective. Starr cost Devlin a pinfall over WALTER because he was jealous. Devlin wanted revenge, and OTT dangled a title match against WALTER over their heads. What we got as a result was a hate-fueled brawl all over the National Basketball Arena, with the crowd firmly behind Devlin. An exceptional match from an exceptional feud, from one of the best independent promotions going today.” Suit Williams

“An emotional battle reminiscent of the Yuzupon era, with its focus on martial arts and strike exchanges. Tamu keeping the opponent guessing with unorthodox offense. Arisa’s resourceful use of the ropes and management of space to set up her devastating combinations. The finish was the perfect surge of emotions to cap off the feud.” aguakun

“DDT, for all of their many faults can still deliver big when it’s the right people in the right situation. HARASHIMA vs. Takeshita was that situation with the right people, and actually the win itself is worth watching on it’s own if you’re already not into these guys who (in particular Takeshita) are the antithesis of what many fans think of when they think of DDT. The drama of this was off the charts and the further away we go from 2019 the more this stands out.” Dylan Fox

“HOLY SHIT, what a match, and it was even better than their excellent Wrestle Kingdom encounter. They did an excellent job through out the match of using the injuries that were reported on both men and kept them a common thread throughout, which played extremely well and added to the drama and got the crowd invested. They also included great throwbacks to the WrestleKingdom match before working into a scintillating closing stretch with some absolutely tremendous near falls that had me on the edge of my seat. These boys absolutely delivered.” Larry Csonka

“sometimes the best wrestling is when the entire crowd gets rabidly behind the babyface and boos the heels and they both hold up their end of the bargain. it’s simple. its not easy, in that it takes two top grade professionals – which none of us knew El-P could be before this year, but it’s simple.” kara

“Dragon Lee held his own with Shingo Takagi here, not too many of Shingo’s opponents could, the two men went back and forth early on until Shingo hit a DDT to Dragon Lee on the floor on the outside which slowed the match down momentarily. It always amazes me how much stamina and toughness that the guys have in Japan because this match was later on in a multi day tournament and both men still brought forth their best effort and they brought out the best in each other. Shingo hits a Death Valley Driver on the ring apron and both spill out to the outside, Shingo’s matches are just special and so is he and the company makes that very clear it’s simple yet effective. The entire story of this entire tournament was “Who was going to be the one to beat Shingo” and that’s as much of a story as it needed. The matches did the rest of the work and this match solidified it. Dragon lee threw everything he had at Shingo and Shingo answered back and then some. Towards the end of the match Shingo hits Dragon Lee with a lariat and Dragon Lee falls and drops out of frame. Lee then comes back with a double foot stomp followed by a soccer kick. My god! The ending sequence of this match was absolutely insane Dragon Lee did everything that he could to try and put Shingo Takagi away to get the points but Shingo prevailed at the end. An Excellent match in a tournament that was really really good overall.” Nathan Neumann

“On August 4th, 2013, Katsuyori Shibata and Tomohiro Ishii had one of my favorite matches of all time in the G1 Climax. Nothing ever came particularly close to recreating the feeling I had watching that until this amazing joshi match nearly six years later. The veteran Meiko and the up-and-comer Sareee went 100 miles-an-hour from the opening bell, destroying each other with vicious strikes and violent suplexes. And it must be said, this match somehow went over three minutes longer than Shibata-Ishii did as well! An absolutely amazing match with two women who just never stopped for fifteen minutes straight, up there with the greatest sprints of all time and an easy choice for my 2019 Match of the Year.” John Carroll

“How many people can flip out over a single move? A single move that didn’t lead to a bump: just David Starr stamping on a belt set the crowd – and social media – alight. Everything here in the last “full singles match” between WALTER and Starr was on point, while the arrival of Jordan Devlin to tattle tale on David Starr made this even more exquisite. Not quite my MOTY, but a very close tie!” Ian Hamilton

“This was my 4th wrestling show in 3 days for WrestleMania weekend. A friend and I were at the House of Glory show to start the day. I finally got to meet and see Great Muta wrestle on that show. His match came on midway through the card. I turned to my friend immediately and said we have to go to NJPW at MSG, since we would have time to make that show. I’m a diehard NJPW fan, so getting to see them in person for the first time was incredible. Ibushi/Naito tire the house down and had me out of my seat cheering like a madman.

“When Yuki Ishikawa was announced for AMBITION and was taking on Timothy Thatcher, I was instantly pumped. Ishikawa did some training with Thatcher back when he was EVOLVE champion so not only was it great that he was taking on one of the best grapplers today, it was also a student/mentor story that gives this match that little more depth. I watched Ishikawa in the Inner Circle match a few days before this so I knew what to expect from this from that match and his single encounters with Thatcher. But this… now this blew me away even more than that match did. Started off slow, but both were alert. Constantly wriggling and adjusting for the advantage, a few slaps and kicks for extra measure here and there. Then Ishikawa began getting more of a foothold in the match and began suckering in Thatcher into different holds which looked great. Everything Ishikawa did had a certain awkwardness to it, which I don’t consider a bad thing. None of the holds looked comfortable to be in, and I sure they weren’t, and that’s the point.

Thatcher equally as great at the grappling but mostly sold the holds superbly with his little grunts and gasps for air. Another thing I enjoyed about this match was the moments of pure instincts. For example, Ishikawa had a hold on Thatcher and Thatcher looked to reach for the ropes with his legs and Ishikawa latched onto the leg and adapted the hold along with it. Moments like that are what made this match for me. Sensational match. Not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s mine and it’s top quality.” Lee/MC

“This match did not have a strong storyline going into it, really it was just a bunch of elite luchadores doing crazy and innovative moves at a frantic pace in front of an extremely appreciative PWG audience. If you are looking for great storytelling, dramatic near-falls and matches with real stakes, look elsewhere. However, if you are looking for a match to show non-fans why you think wrestling is cool, this would be the match you should show them. After the match was over, with all six men in the ring holding up the Mexican flag while the fans through money into the ring (a tradition in lucha libre) was a sweet moment and worked as a tribute to the major influence lucha libre has had on independent wrestling this decade.” Jesse Collings

“You’ve probably heard of this match as the one that got every US promotion interested in Vikingo (who remains plagued with visa issues to this day) and got Laredo Kid booked in that highly entertaining trios match at AEW Fyter Fest. What you may not know is that this match wasn’t even supposed to happen; it was, in fact, supposed to be a three-way match for Laredo Kid’s AAA Cruiserweight Championship with Vikingo and Jack Evans challenging. When Jack couldn’t make it the match turned into a 1 vs. 1, and Monterrey was treated to the best match of the year and the finest moment from a promotion that I believe was head and shoulders above everyone else in 2019.

It was perhaps not as rich in the storytelling departments as other candidates, although the story of two friends/partners (Laredo and Viking were AAA Trios Champions with Myzteziz Jr. at the time) is an underrated undercurrent throughout. Where it beats all the other matches is how the near 20 minute match flies by, features lucha libre done at its absolute best and the two best spots of 2019 in the form of Vikingo’s Brillo 450 from the ramp and the greatest Spanish Fly spot you will ever see in your life. And while the match moved the needle because Vikingo was out of this world, the match doesn’t work without the veteran Laredo Kid, in the midst of the year of his life, keeping the match steady with his all-around work. You know, in between delivering his own awe inspiring moves. A star making performance for both men, this match is everything I want from lucha libre and pro wrestling in this day and age. A masterpiece of the highest order.” Eric Mutter

“The only MOTYC that I attended live this year and what a corker it turned out to be! It was a true pleasure and privilege to see a full-on New Japan heavyweight championship match in the flesh, in a great venue and a hot crowd. What’s better is that we all bought into the match. We lived and died with Suzuki, and we 100% believed that he had what it takes to unseat and dethrone Okada. Every time Suzuki attempted the piledriver, we were on tenterhooks. I swear, if he landed the piledriver and got the duke, the place would’ve exploded. Brexit would’ve been called off and sterling’s value would’ve shot up to astronomical highs. This was excellent.” Shane Doyle

“All the talk about Naito and Ibushi having neck-bump deathwishes is pretty tired, I think. That said, when this match BEGAN with Ibushi selling a neck injury, you had to know you were in for a doozy. Everyone remembers the apron german suplex that nearly ends Kota Ibushi, but there’s so much more happening. I always think about Kota’s render on the New Japan website when he took the Intercontinental Title from Naito; in it, he’s hugging the belt in front of him as tightly as he can. It’s the belt his heroes built up, he’ll do anything to keep it. And he’ll have to, because at Dominion Naito’s gone full-blown sociopath.

At one point the camera pans out a little for a beautiful shot of the two facing one another. You can see the Osaka-Jo lights above them, and Kevin Kelly notes, “Each man [is] seemingly in their happy place when they’re in great pain, their necks are destroyed.” They’re both smiling. They knew exactly what kind of match this was going to be, methodically ramping things up with each encounter. They know they’re in the midst of something that you’re going to have a hard time forgetting, whether you think it’s a masterpiece or a snuff film. Easy five.” Jonathan Hernandez
