    1. Johnny Gargano vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas - NXT Takeover - 1/27 (Birthday Match!)
    2. Kaito Kiyomiya vs. Kenou - NOAH Navigation for the Future - 1/6
    3. Hirooki Goto vs. Minoru Suzuki - NJPW Wrestle Kingdom - 1/4
    4. Yusaku Obata vs. Masato Tanaka - Zero1 Happy New Year - 1/1
    5. Minoru Suzuki vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi - NJPW The New Beginning - 1/26
    6. Tetsuya Naito vs. Kazuchika Okada - NJPW Wrestle Kingdom - 1/4
    7. Chris Jericho vs. Kenny Omega - NJPW Wrestle Kingdom - 1/4
    8. Gran Guerrero vs. Niebla Roja - NJPW/CMLL FantasticaMania - 1/19

    Burning Wild vs. The Violence Giants
    Zeus vs. Joe Doering
    Jason Jordan vs. Cesaro
    Rachael Ellering vs. Mayu Iwatani
    TJP vs. Tyler Bate
    Been meaning to ask you, what did you think of the second match between Kenou and Kaito (The 20/01 match)? Thought it was good but not as good as the 6/1 match personally.





    This is my top ten most recommended for 2018 thus far:

    1. Tetsuya Naito vs Kazuchika Okada (04/01 Wrestle Kingdom 12)
    2. Hirooki Goto vs Minoru Suzuki (04/01 Wrestle Kingdom 12)
    3. Zack Sabre Jr vs Walter (Evolve 99 14/01)
    4. Odeo Tai vs Queen's Quest (Stardom 7th anniversary show)
    5. Minoru Suzuki vs Hiroshi Tanahashi (27/01 New Beginning in Sapporo Night One)
    6. Rush vs Satoshi Kojima (22/01 Fantastica Mania 2018 Night Eight)
    7. Andrade “Cien” Almas vs Johnny Gargano (NXT TakeOver Philadelphia 27/01)
    8. Chris Jericho vs Kenny Omega (04/01 Wrestle Kingdom 12)
    9. Jay White vs Kenny Omega(28/01 New Beginning in Sapporo Night Two)
    10. Konosuke Takeshita vs Jiro "Ikemen" Kuroshio (05/01 DDT D-King Day One)

    I like this idea. I'm gonna add mine to this pile too.

    1. Undisputed vs. Authors of Pain at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia
    2. Kazuchika Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12
    3. Kenny Omega vs. Chris Jericho at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12

    8. Cody Rhodes vs. Kota Ibushi at NJPW Wrestle Kingdam 12
    9. Pete Dunne vs. Joseph Conners at PROGRESS Chapter 61
    10. 30 Woman Royal Rumble match at WWE Royal Rumble 2018

    Kenou vs. Kaito Kiyomiya at NOAH Navigation for the Future Night #1
    Joe Doering vs. Zeus at AJPW New Year Wars Night #1
    Mike Bailey vs. Shuji Ishikawa at DDT D-Ou GP 2018 in Shinjuku
    Johnny Gargano vs. The Velveteen Dream on NXT TV #284
    Aleister Black vs. Adam Cole at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia
    Minoru Suzuki vs. Hirooki Goto at NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 12
    Angel de Oro vs. Cuatrero at NJPW/CMLL Fantastica Mania Night #6
    Mike Bird vs. TK Cooper on PROGRESS Live at the Dome #3
    Roman Reigns vs. Samoa Joe on WWE RAW (01/01)
    Masato Tanaka vs. Yusaku Obata at ZERO1 Happy New Year


    I have a very clear bias towards New Japan, NXT and PROGRESS obviously but I'm okay with that and I expect that'll even out a little as the year goes on and I become more familiar with certain groups like NOAH and ZERO1 and pick up more stuff from the likes of Stardom and Dragon Gate, but that's basically my January top twenty.

    MC: Same thoughts as you on the rematch. The first match had a lot more to it imo. Still solid stuff and Kiyomiya continues to impress.

    Wow, you loved that NXT tag match, Raiz! I've still got a few PROGRESS shows to catch up on but either this month or next I'll jump over to their on demand service and check out those matches from 61.

    I really did. I went into it thinking that it was just gonna be a solid, nothing-much-to-it affair but felt like it gave me so much more than I'd seen from either team so far. Less so in the case of Undisputed because I'm aware of some of reDRagon's previous work but I never expected the level of selling and story telling that the Authors brought to the match. It's gonna take a lot to knock it off that spot for me.

    I am now torn on what my #1 is, because Thatcher/Walter was tremendous, everything I wanted and more from those two. Those two were ultra vicious to each other. That chop the head spot was incredible.

    A must see match. I think it’s better than Walter/Dragunov.

    Re: Recommended Matches: 2018

    That match was absolutely incredible. I still have it #2 but if you put it #1 I would be totally fine with it. I agree that it was even better than Dragunov/WALTER.

    None of these matches are as good as that but still worth watching from the 2/3 AJPW show.

    Akiyama/Nagata vs Naoya Nomura & Ryoji Sai - All Asia Tag Titles
    Tajiri vs Atsushi Aoki - AJPW Jr. Title
    Suwama/Shuji Ishikawa vs Kento Miyahara & Yoshitatsu - AJPW World Tag Titles
    KAI vs. Joe Doering - AJPW Triple Crown

    I would rank them:
    KAI/Joe - ****
    All Asia Tag - ***3/4
    World Tag - ***1/2
    Jr Title - ***1/2

    but I'm higher on KAI/Joe than a lot of people but I thought it was just a pure match with a great and well executed underdog story of KAI going for the title in his hometown rather than a traditional "epic" match. Joe is perfect for having unique style of matches instead of just "house style" main events you see in every other company. Also stick around for the post-match promo for a couple of reasons.

    KAI vs Joe was a fine match but to be honest, I was expecting a bit more. Enjoyable match but I preferred the Violent Giants vs Yoshitatsu/Kento Miyahara match.



    And yeah, Walter vs Thatcher was a fantastic match. Love every second of it. It's over took Naito/Okada as my top match of the year so far. Great stuff.

    A lot of people think that, as I said I'm an outlier but I still think it's worth watching. Kento is awesome & the fact that he has made Yoshitatsu so much better is a testament to that but I thought the first half was a bit boring with Tatsu in. But the last 5 minutes was probably the best minutes of wrestling of the night. Also another reason that knocked it down a peg was the booking was just awful. Wrong team totally won.

    I have to agree. Tatsu/Kento winning the match seems like an odd decision. Why not keep the title on the Violent Giants? Perhaps the aftermath was a factor in them losing the titles.

    Re: Recommended Matches: 2018

    Misaki Ohata vs Arisa Nakajima from SEAdLINNNG 14th Jan is a very good match. Dunno if there was a better Joshi match in Jan because I haven't seen many. Story is that Nakajima and Ohata had sort of feuded last year when Best Friends (Nakajima and Tsukasa Fujimoto) faced Avid Rival (Ohata and Ryo Mizunami) in a best of 3 tag series over the space of two weeks in August. The pair had heated confrontations alot. The series ended 1-1 with Avid Rival winning the first match in WAVE, the second match being a draw in Ice Ribbon and the final match going to Best Friends in SEAd. Nakajima's gone on to be undefeated in SEAdLINNNG since whilst Ohata went on to win the WAVE singles belt from Rina Yamashita before dropping it to Yumi Ohka in a very surprising defeat. So, one person is kind of one the up and one is on the down. Ohata winning could get her back on track. A loss could be kind of devastating.

    The show is on the Real Hero google drive for anyone interested. The match is at the 59 minute mark. There is a good mix of technical wrestling and brawling. There's a few errors here and there but I think the second half of the match really picks up. I don't really have any qualms with it at all. The pace was somewhat frantic and the match could've gone longer if drawn out but I think it's at around the right length. Worth a look if you're interested in Joshi. Worth checking out the aforementioned tag matches from last year too tbh.

    205 Live yesterday was great. I wouldn't normally suggested the first match on the show within this thread but I think that were it not for the shitty crowd being totally checked out it probably would've made it into this conversation so it's worth watching, but Roddy vs. Hideo was blinding and rose above the crap crowd who barely looked up from their phones.

    Tottaly would recommend SANADA vs Okada. It's just outside my top 5 matches this year. Awesome match.

They weren't afraid to be more than one thing either; the standard Suzuki-gun brawling outside was broken up with some very good technical stuff in the ring as well as some more spotty stuff. Fun match that woke me up after what felt like a slog of a card to be honest.

    Just watched the Titan/Mephisto match this morning (I'm already behind with the shows ) and it might be the best CMLL match I've seen in the short time I've been watching them. The best-of-three stip can be a chore at times but all the falls made sense and they worked really well together. There were a couple of spots on the outside - that I won't spoil in case anyone wants to go in blind - that looked insane but the replays showed them to be really safely executed and as much as it bugged me that the replay had taken some of the danger out of the moment I was very impressed by both guys performances and I'm glad I didn't count it against them for doing silly "unsafe" spots because both guys worked their arses off.

    I don't rate it as highly as you do but I definitely enjoyed it a lot. I enjoyed all of the singles matches on that New Beginning in Osaka show to be honest and would recommend people check out all of them other than BUSHI/Gedo and EVIL/Goto, which were fine but nothing special or worth going out of your way for.

    I liked Goto vs EVIL. I think on a different night, people will much different about the match. The placement of the card was the problem, I think.

    The UK title match on NXT this week between Strong and Dunne was great.

    I would totally recommend Kzy vs. Masaaki Mochizuki from the Dragon Gate Kotoka Road To Final show back on the 7th of February. Loved this match. Mochizuki's work on Kzy's ribs were excellent. Love his kick based style (it's probably my favorite). The crowd was red hot for this match and every near fall that Kzy had, the crowd were into and it felt like they were ready to explode. Watch this match. It's phenomenal.

    So I tend not to comment on matches I've not enjoyed that get recommended because the idea here is that this is a positive place full of love for wrestling, so I never mentioned this... but I've recently been catching up on my podcasts and you and Strigga were talking about this match on Eastern Lariat and you unknowingly found out how I felt about this match when he read out the ratings on CageMatch and you reacted with shock that anyone would rate it a 4/10. That was me.

    I just did not dig it at all. It could be down to me not being familiar with the guys in it, or the promotion they were in but Isikawa was also in one of my favourite matches that month in DDT with Mike Bailey, which was in the same boat pretty much - so I think that it just wasn't my kind of thing or I was just in a particular mood that day and not up for what they delivered.
