  • 2017 Match of the Year talk January through April

    With less that 3 months left in the year, and the first match of the year poll starting in December, I figured I'd start the discussion early on possible nominations for the first 4 months of the year.

    Just a reminder, if the match is from a television show, we go by when the match took place, not aired. No Lucha Underground matches are eligible for the 2017 SoCal Match of the Year.

    Also, the following 4 matches that finished #1 for their respective months don't need to be nominated as they'll be on the list.

    B-Boy over Suede Thompson, Andy Brown, and Jake Atlas – AWS – Jan. 28
    Ricochet over Lio Rush – PWG – Feb. 18
    Penta El 0M & Rey Fenix over The Young Bucks and Ricochet & Matt Sydal – PWG – March 18
    The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) over War Machine (Raymond Rowe & Hanson) – PWG – April 21

    Here are a few matches that I think should be considered from that time period.

    JR Kratos over Tito Escondido – AWS – Jan. 28 - This was really great and hopefully more people get a chance to see it. Maybe my favorite non-PWG/New Japan in SoCal this year so far.

    Douglas James over Lio Rush and Joey Janela – PCW – Jan. 20 - This was also really good. Great performance by Douglas James and janela, but Rush was on fire.

    Ryan Kidd over Eli Everfly – OWA – Feb. 25 - I really liked this match as well, but not a lot of people got to see it live and it took place in the dark (it is on the SCU YouTube channel though)

    Josh Barnett over Jeff Cobb – QPW/AWS – April 29 - This was great. Cobb has had a terrific 2017 in SoCal.

    Rey Mysterio Jr. & Lil’ Cholo over SoCal Crazy & Rocky Romero – SoCal Pro – April 15 - This was a lot of fun.

        Kratos vs Escondido from January is probably my favorite local match this year so far.

          I think mine too. Cobb vs Barnett was up there as well.

            This is still taking open. Feel free to email, DM, hit someone up at a show, carrier pigeon, or even use smoke signals.

              Barnett/Cobb was the best pure wrestling match I had ever seen. Nothing else from this part of the year really stands out from what I had seen. Even highly praised PWG matches weren't as memorable as that.
