Favorite matches of 2017?
We're nearing the end of the year, probably not gonna get anymore classics in the next few weeks so....what did we like this year?

I'm gonna have to think and compile my list. NJPW had a ridiculous year and WWE had some great ones too.

These aren't in any order, not trying to rank them.

Pete Dunne vs. Tyler Bate - NXT Takeover Chicago
Cena vs. AJ - Royal Rumble
Lesnar vs. AJ - Survivor Series

Okada vs. Omega - WK11
Okada vs. Omega - Dominion
Okada vs. Omega - G1
Okada vs. Shibata - Sakura Genesis
Omega vs. Naito - G1 Finals
Naito vs. Tanahashi - G1
Tanahashi vs. Ibushi - Power Struggle
Ibushi vs. Naito - G1

With NJPW, pretty much any combination of Okada, Omega, Naito, Tanahashi, Ibushi or Ishii was guaranteed to be a classic. And even old ass Suzuki and Nagata during the G1 were having amazing matches. The G1 was incredible. Zack Sabre Jr., EVIL, Kushida, and Juice all killing it.

This was just NJPW's year. Best in-ring year in my 28 years of watching wrestling.

I agree with pretty much all of those, and those are just the heavyweights you listed off. The series of matches between KUSHIDA and Takahashi were really fun also.

Win the Day!

Okada vs Evil at G1 would be in that list.
How the hell do you forget:

Fatal 4 Way Lesnar/Braun/Roman/Joe at SS
New Day/Usos at HIAC
Asuka/Ember Moon at Takeover
Bobby Roode/Shinsuke at Takeover
NXT 3 on 3 War games
5-way match at Extreme Rules

NJPW def got you gassed up bruh

I thought the Authors of Pain/DIY ladder match from NXT Chicago was pretty badass.

On a side note, my favorite up and coming star is Keith Lee. He has intelligence, charisma, athleticism, and he is a beast. It's like JYD and Vader made a baby luchador and named him Keith Lee.

For real. Yes he looks like a fat POS, but this dude is explosive as fuck. This compilation video is a bit sloppy but if you stick with it, you'll see why this guy has potential.

A fatter blacker KO. Potential.

You could have just said black KO (even if he isn't anything like KO at all). No need to be racist AND fat shame someone.

I don't watch anything else but NXT and WWE, mainly because of time constraints. I don't even watch Raw or Smackdown at the moment, just don't have time. I'd like to watch RoH and NJPW someday but right now I don't got it.

Tyler Bate vs Pete Dunn - NXT Takeover Chicago
DIY vs AoP - NXT Takeover Brooklyn ladder match
Aleister Black vs Velveteen Dream - NXT Takeover War Games
Johnny Gargano vs Andrade Cien Almas - NXT Takeover Brooklyn
Asuka vs Ember Moon - NXT Takeover Brooklyn
AJ Styles vs John Cena - Royal Rumble
Fashion Police vs Usos - Backlash?
Brock vs Joe - Great Balls of Fire
Brock vs Joe vs Braun vs Roman - Summerslam
Neville vs Rich Swann - Royal Rumble
Neville vs Jack Gallagher - Fast Lane
Roman Reigns vs Braun Strowman - Every time
AJ Styles vs Shane McMahon - Wrestlemania
Brock Lesnar vs Goldberg - Wrestlemania
Roman vs Undertaker - Wrestlemania
New Day vs Usos - Every time
Brock vs AJ - Survivor Series
Jesus I just caught up with the end of 2017 from NXT

Have to add these

Kassius Ohno vs Johnny Gargano
Tyler Bate vs Pete Dunn
Fatal 4-Way #1 Contendership - Killian Dane vs Lars Sullivan vs Aleister Black vs Johnny Gargano
Johnny Gargano vs Pete Dunn
In retrospect, Okada vs. Omega - Dominion was probably the best. Okada vs. Omega - WK11 was magical for many reasons. Seeing their rematch and wondering if they could live up to the hype made for a lot of intrigue and suspense. But for them to exceed the hype and put on a better match? That's unbelievable. And that ending...so crushing and heartbreaking. What an excellent story.

Yeah, of the 3 Okada/Omega matches, I think I gotta go with the Dominion match also.

Regardless, those 3 matches are the 3 best professional wrestling matches I've ever seen so you can't really go wrong with any of them.
