    Nomination - Daniel Bryan Vs AJ Styles IC tournament finals

    This tournament has been a really good source of enjoyable TV matches, previously highlighted by Bryan Vs Gulak, but I think this one was probably better than that. Plenty of time to showcase what these guys could do, matwork was really nice but the selling of it was beyond what you normally see in WWE and that made everything so much better. Kinda enjoyed there was no big false finish at the end like Bryan not kicking out of the forearm, he got caught with AJ's two finishers and that was enough to end it. I also didn't find the crowd too annoying this time so wins all round.

    YES - thanks for the recommendation, because this ruled and might be in contention for my MOTY (certainly my WWE MOTY so far). Amazing match, lots of good storytelling and selling. Great stuff.

    YES - Excellent match, the best match WWE has had all year for the reasons Ed points out in the thread. In a somewhat similar vein to the Gulak/Bryan match from February but longer and with bigger stakes and more competitiveness. Great selling as well as minimalist work with the entire match feeling like it meant something. Strong work.

    YES - Just watched this in full as well. Superb and a notch above Bryan vs. Gulak from last month. First Styles match I've enjoyed in a while to be honest, interesting to see if that is because of Daniel Bryan or whether he'll maintain that level going forward.

    YES - AJ has not been good for a while, probably since his feud with Daniel Bryan in 17-18 funnily enough, but I thought he was pretty great in this with his selling and work on Bryan's leg. Both which brought the match to the next level. The techincal wrestling was pretty good for the most part. It was fairly showy for a while but it soon escalated and got more snug as the match progressed. The finish was great as well.

    Styles vs Bryan - YES. I think this was clearly their best match in the WWE by a considerable distance, and the best match Styles has had in ages.

    I rewatched their match from Rumble last year.. What a disappointment.

    The match was great from a technical standpoint, but it should've ended 10 minutes before it did and it didn't seem to build to anything. The match was slow and dull in places.

    It's a shame that their match from SD a few weeks ago was in an empty arena, because it would have fared alot better than their previous matches.
