    I can not write Edge Vs Randy Orton fast enough. Garbage match.

    I am holding off until I watch Gargano vs Ciampa, but Edge vs Orton is the very clear front runner. It is at least the worst match since Fiend vs Rollins

    Both were stupidly awful matches. However I had a perverse enjoyment out of Gargano/Ciampa whereas Edge vs Orton was soul crushing. Edge vs Orton leads the pack for me.

    I also had no qualms with it. It was pretty bad for a Last Man Standing match, but I certainly didn't find it unbearable.

    Re: 2020 Worst Match of the Year Ongoing Discussion

    In fairness I probably have a different perspective of the match than most, because I didn't watch all of Mania, I watched like 4-5 matches individually over the course of a few days. I get with how long it was if you watched the full show that could have been a drag, but me watching it in a vacuum, I had fun watching it. Thought there were some cool spots with going all over the PC, and they did a good job making this feel like a personal, big blow off match for their feud. I felt like it was a good conclusion to the story.

    I will say though that the Benoit spot was incredibly stupid and I have no idea how they had weeks to edit that and just left it there.

    I will say Edge/Orton is the first ever wrestling match to actually put me to sleep, I just found completely lifeless and boring

    I think you and I are the only ones who liked it. I watched it three times in a 24-hour period and once on its lonesome. Still think it was a good match. Thought Rhea/Charlotte was the stinker.

    Is it possible that you've just driven yourself insane from watching it so many times?

    Kidding aside, I'll watch it again, but considering I thought it was dreadful on the first go around, I'm not holding out much hope that it improves to the level you guys think it's on.

    Gargano vs. Ciampa and Edge vs. Orton have to be the front runners for this. I think Gargano/Ciampa could be considered technically worse, but that stuff with Edge crying at having to beat a man who attacked his wife annoyed me so fucking much I think I'd lean towards that.

    There was no redeeming qualities about Edge/Orton to me. That'll lead the way for me as it stands. I at least found some entertainment (even if it wasn't the kind they were attempting) in Gargano/Ciampa.

    It’s so weird that out of all the places I visit that discuss wrestling this is the only place where most people hated Edge v Orton I get bored by long matches as it is so I’m not saying I enjoyed it’s just weird how these online wrestling communities cultivate there own personalities. Gargono Ciampa also bored me.

    If you want a non-WWE recommendation, then watch Pagano/Mortis vs. Warner/Vega from this weeks MLW. An absolute mess.

    Really? Even Meltzer and Bryan Alvarez were onboard with how bad it was.

    I didn't watch the whole thing myself, nor did I watch Gargano-Ciampa.

    For shorter matches I'd say Goldberg's two title matches were pretty stinky, but I get that is less offensive than the second longest match in Wrestlemania history being a bomb
