    This would have been my final as well. My top two wrestlers of the year so far. I'll take Dunne but Bate is a top tier performer right now.

    What reasons would those be? Everyone else has just said they like Bate but just give it to Dunne without any explanation

    ---

    I think this is too good a matchup just to not discuss anything and try to compare and contrast two guys who have pretty much been booked on the same shows together all year long.

    First of all, when I say this would be my final out of the 8 men left in the tournament, that's not to say Bate and Dunne are my #1 and #2 wrestlers of the year. Wrestler of the year 2017 is still a hard one to answer right now, especially in G1 season.

    When I sit down and think about it, I can't see many reasons to vote Dunne over Bate other than Dunne's character work is stronger of the two, but that's only if you've been watching the WWE UK stuff and have missed out on Bate's great heel work in the UK indys as part of British Strong Style.

    Even if I look at just their WWE work as I suspect half the voters have done, I give the edge to Bate. Dunne has the two Bate matches, the the two Andrews matches and then one with Trent on the Norwich special. Bate has the two Dunne matches, the Andrews match in Norwich, the Oney sprint, the Trent defence, the Gallagher defence, and I actually think his UK tournament matches with Devlin and Wolfgang were solid too. Not too much in it admittedly.

    Then when I look at their indies work, without even thinking about it that hard, I've preferred Tyler Bate's tag team work with Trent Seven than I have Pete Dunne's Progress Title run, those guys are legitimately a tag team of the year contender. Fuck, actually I think they are my tag team of the year. Then you chuck in Bate's SSS16 and his other Progress matches with Matt Riddle and Mark Andrews, there's no doubt in my mind he's had more great matches than Dunne this year. Dunne's title run really has a mixed bag of matches.

    Long story short, if you're looking at it purely on match quality (which is the most important factor to me), I'm not sure I see the argument for Dunne over Bate. I'd vote Dunnt over Bate from a character standpoint, although talking isn't a strong suit of either man and Trent is the strongest promo by far of the three of them.

    From PROGRESS:

    Tyler Bate
    w/ Trent Seven vs. South Pacific Power Trip
    w/ Trent Seven vs. CCK
    vs. Matt Riddle (Strong Style 16 Semi Final)
    vs. Travis Banks (Strong Style 16 Final)
    w/ Trent Seven & Pete Dunne vs. CCK & Travis Banks

    Pete Dunne
    vs. Zack Sabre Jr.
    vs. Jimmy Havoc (No DQ)
    w/ Trent Seven vs. London Riots (We're Gonna Need a Bigger Room Again)

    In hindsight, I voted Tyler to stop a drubbing but looking at it now, it's deserved.

    Oh fuck that Jimmy Havoc match is awesome. The best hardcore/death match of the year. I'd have to concede that a point Dunne would have over Bate, he's shown he's got matches like that in his arsenal.

    I wouldn't rate it that high, but Dijak to me is a guy who relies too much on big man doing movez he shouldn't kind of wrestler. Preferred Bate's tag against CCK from that show.

    Ugh good grief. Like, I think it's cool that the guys also show some versatility in that they can do comedy matches too, but I hate that dick spot of Ryan's.

    I think that's why I'm putting Dunne over Bate right now. Bate's excelling in both singles and tags but Dunne has had more opportunities to show off some versitility and has excelled.

    I really love that Havoc match. Also his match with David Starr is great. The Dijak match is pretty good.

    Dunne faced Starr? I better try and hunt that one down.

    Also on Dunne I feel like it's overlooked how young he is too. I think most people are aware that Tyler Bate is only 20 years old because it's a big talking point of his matches how young he is, but Dunne is only 23 years old himself. Both of these guys are incredibly young to be churning out great match after great match which aren't just reliant on athleticism and high spots, but showcase that these guys have good psychology.

    Okay, Nicky fucked up. I was thinking Bate vs Starr

    However Pete Dunne and David Starr did have a match in Germany and those shows are supposed to be released after the New York and Boston shows
