As we did for the previous 11 months of 2015, it’s time to find out December’s Match of the Month!

Voting is now live at

If you aren’t familiar with our process for Match of the Month, please check out our previous month’s lists at

The goal of this project is to prepare people for Voices of Wrestling’s Match of the Year poll at the end of the year and ensure that nobody is left out in the dark on the best pro wrestling, no matter where in the world it happened.

The basic process is matches are nominated by VOW staff members and fans of the site. All of these matches are then entered into a database for use in H2H voting done again by VOW staff, fans and anyone else who finds the link.

This voting system gives you two matches at a time to vote on. You choose which match you thought was better or pass if you aren’t familiar with the matches. (The goal here is to make yourself familiar with both matches if you aren’t already).

Once you’re done voting for that H2H matchup, two other matches are selected at random. When it’s all said and done, matches are ranked by how many H2H matchups they won.

  1. Jay Lethal vs AJ Styles (ROH – 12/18)
