I love matches that have completely decisive finishes that don’t end in a submission or pinfall. There is something fulfilling about seeing a wrestler completely destroy another and get DQed or go to a countout. This match begins as an incredible brawl and then becomes a spectacle of LA Park being a super human ass kicking machine who destroys Rush with no concern for things like rules.” -Mongo Underscore Ebooks

Masaaki Mochizuki vs. Kzy

Dragon Gate

Loads of build going into this match, Kzy slowly climbing up on the card in the past year being that underdog that is getting closer and closer to the title. Kzy pinning Mochizuki with his famous flash pin few weeks before this. They incorporate the build really well, especially towards the end. Kzy giving one of the best underdog performances I’ve seen mixed with Mochizuki’s amazing show with his work on the ribs, swagger and fantastic striking. Two unbelievable shows. Highly memorable match that stood out to me since it was aired. Everything great about the Dragon Gate style, everything great about Wrestling in general.” -Lee Mowatt

Masaaki Mochizuki is 49 years old. He’s been wrestling five years longer than the Dragon System has existed. He’s probably the best, and most consistent wrestler over the age of 45. Unless something terrible happens, he will likely be the best wrestler in their 50s next year. His performance as Open the Dream Gate champion will go down as one of the most incredible things in the history of the Dragon System: Over the period of a title reign, Mocchy managed to have a completely different kind of match each defense, and was able to elevate three younger wrestlers to the top flight at a time when Dragon Gate desperately needed it. Kzy was a career loss post. If he was in any sort of main event, you knew who was taking the fall. He’s been wrestling for almost thirteen years, and only has perfunctory Open the Triangle Gate reigns and a token Open the Brave Gate reign for two months. But in one night, he became a standard bearer for Dragon Gate, in a time when they needed one badly.

So why did this match stick out to me and why is it my 2018 Match of the Year? Well, Masaaki Mochizuki managed to take a popular underdog babyface in Kzy and made him into a legit leader in 20 minutes of destroying his stomach. What kind of match nowadays is built by the champion being an incredible bully? This was like something out of early 80s NWA, where Ric Flair faced a local up-and-comer, and they took him to the brink, but then put them away. This was a match where one of the chronically underrated wrestlers in the world was given the opportunity to prove his worth, and he blew away expectations. It was a match that indicated the new era of Dragon Gate, and it was between two people who would be in openers in any other Japanese wrestling promotions, one for being too old, the other for being too small. Masaaki Mochizuki is 49 years old. Kzy was a career loss post. Don’t let that convince you that a filler Dream Gate defense isn’t worth watching.” -Mike Spears

Part of this was the crowd reaction, part of it is I’m just a sucker for quality tag team wrestling. These two have had a number of excellent matches over the last calendar year, but when I think back to one specific bout between these two teams, this is the one that always comes first to mind.” -Greg Parks

This is perfect pro wrestling. Even on re-watch, it had me buzzing for the rest of the day. The blend of action, psychology, and melodrama was exactly what I want out of my professional wrestling. The little touches were really what put this one over the edge, though – Kyle O’Reilly forgoing his air guitar entrance for a stony-faced scowl; Roderick Strong’s desperate violence; Trent Seven’s inevitable but wholly unnecessary bravery in the face of two killers trying to rip his limbs off; Tyler Bate being better at his art as a fetus than most people are after decades. Everything about this came together for me into a match that I’ll remember for a long time.” -Jeff Martin

Highest Vote: 2nd

In terms of sheer brutality, without going into the world of deathmatches, there are few matches this year that can hold up to this one. Walter and Thatcher already have styles that resemble more fighting than pro wrestling. This match is them combining their efforts and turning it up to 11.

To call this a brawl would be incorrect. But to call it a wrestling match would be wrong as well. As overused as the term can be, this really was a fight. They were not in there cooperating with each other so much as they were beating each other up. The stiffness showcased in the match is the kind you would only trust a good friend to utilize in a match, so as neither man gets carried away. Because, quite frankly, the punishment in this match walked that narrow border of a work and being hard-to-watch at times. Walter and Thatcher pushed themselves beyond most people’s limits, and the resulting match speaks for itself.” -Daniel DeMarco

The greatest 3 seconds of any match in 2018 was Thatcher putting his hands up to block the chop to the chest only for Walter to chop him in the head. I adored this brutal battle between two partners and it’s such a shame that Thatcher’s performance of the underdog babyface didn’t really lead to anything significant in his future PROGRESS appearances.” -Ed Mills

As much as I suspect his New Japan Cup final against Tanahashi was objectively better, I don’t think anything this year matched the thrill I got from watching a man who was incredibly nice to me at an indy show a couple of years ago go toe to toe with the consensus best wrestler in the world for the iconic IWGP Heavyweight Championship, and come that darn close to victory., This was an enthralling match that by the end had me so convinced by the obviously ludicrous idea of ZSJ winning that I was going bananas for every near fall. The whole story of the match was geared towards making Sabre look credible, with him basically having the counter for every signature bit of Okada offense, and using his timing and flexibility to manoeuvre Okada into an array of predictably disgusting, lethal looking submissions. Okada’s tenacity won out in the end- he simply endured Sabre’s submission onslaught, waited for Zack’s concentration to drop as the match wore on, drew him away from his gameplan by goading him into strike exchanges, and then just kept plugging away with the Rainmaker until Zack couldn’t get up. The moment when Zack, having eaten two Rainmakers already and appearing to have had all the life knocked out of him, suddenly countered the third into that sick fucking octopus hold and came within an inch of locking the arms… that moment made me feel ALIVE. That moment is the stuff of life. I wish every day I could sit at my computer screen and cheer on a guy I genuinely care about try and achieve his dreams. It’s a wonderful feeling, and even when those dreams don’t quite work out, there’s something profound and intrinsically valuable about the emotional journey. Credit to the announcers for making that journey seem worth taking; there was a moment very early on when when Sabre had a triangle choke sunk in and Kelly, Callis and Romero all made it sound like it was absolute death for Okada. The part of your brain that has seen a million wrestling matches before knew that in terms of pacing and timing it made no sense for the bout to end at that point, but you still believed anyway because they sold it like a sporting contest where a bout could end at any time for a consistent reason- good triangle chokes end matches, even if they’re slapped on inside the first 30 seconds. It also helped that the live crowd were so hot for this. Obviously most of them were for Okada and it made for a wonderful, emotional atmosphere as Zack whittled away at him, people getting progressively more antsy, the howls of OKADAAAAA getting progressively louder, the camera sporadically cutting to tearful looking fans. Loved it. Loved this whole experience, love Sabre Jr., and I’m very happy with it as my 2018 Match of the Year.” -Jack Stevenson

Kazuchika Okada was having one of the greatest reigns of all time, very close to breaking the record for more consecutive defenses in the history of the company. On the other side, Zack Sabre Jr., the wrestler who took the world by surprise when he defeated Tetsuya naito, Kota Ibushi, SANADA and Tanahashi to become the winner of the New Japan Cup and challenge the IWGP Heavyweight Champion at Sakura Genesis. With every defense of the title, Okada looked more tired and felt like one day it would be just too much. During 30+ minutes Zack Sabre Jr completely dominated this match that quickly turned into a chess game where it looked the the british wrestler knew beforehand every move Okada would do as he had a unique counter for each and every moment. However, once again, Okada had just enough strength to hit the Rainmaker and put ZSJ away. Beautiful match.” -Rodrigo García

Despite the fact that he largely took a backseat to Omega and Tanahashi during the second half of 2018; it’s hard to think of NJPW as being anything but Kazuchika Okada’s company. Okada had cemented himself as an all-time great during a legendary 2017, which paved the way for one of his greatest career achievements at the start of 2018. Before Okada and Naito took the ring, Omega and Chris Jericho tore the house down with an amazing match in the semi-main event. Despite the quality of that match, there was never a doubt that Okada and Naito would be able to follow it. Okada (and Naito) had earned that respect and they delivered another Tokyo Dome classic and sent the word out that nobody was ever going to outshine Okada as long as he was in the main event.” -Jesse Collings

I was at the Tokyo Dome for this one, and Naito’s face right before he went for that second Destino haunted me for weeks afterwards. The Stardust Genius chokes under the bright lights of the Dome.” -Joel Abraham

Brock Lesnar vs Daniel Bryan

WWE

As overused as the term dream match is, this literally is a match I would daydream about. It’s one thing to call a match a dream match because it’s two big stars who you never thought would get the chance to wrestle each other which does apply here to an extent, but it’s also a dream match in the sense of two opponents complimenting their styles so well to the point where on paper you know it could be something unique and excellent if it happened in reality.

Bryan enters the arena first, just days after turning heel after being the latest wrestler to kick AJ in the dick and you can tell his demeanor has changed. He gives up on the Yes chants within seconds indicating he’s not here for crowd interaction anymore and looks confident about the challenge ahead. As the match starts, he lands a quick dropkick to the knee and tries to frustrate Brock by time wasting outside the ring, Bryan very clearly has come into the match with a strategy, poke the bear and go for the leg when you can. Bryan mocking the Lesnar jogging on the spot taunt is just one of the many things I love about the match. For all the clever tactics Bryan may of had going into the match, you can’t plan for getting clotheslined hard and in one swat of Brock’s arm the match gets away from Bryan. The all too familiar formula of modern Brock matches rears it’s ugly head as german after german looks like it’s ended Bryan

Just when the heat sequence was bordering on tedious, Bryan fires back with a few kicks and then when he strikes with the low blow the arena erupts. Everything from the low blow onwards is magical; The dream match is fucking on. Bryan’s comeback sees him land the running knee for a nearfall, it’s not enough to win but it’s enough to get Brock on the backfoot as Bryan takes advantage with kicks and stomps. As great as Bryan is in the match, Brock puts in his best performance in years and when he wants to be he’s still the best seller in the company. He takes a wicked bump outside of the ring, he bumps all the way out of the ring again when Bryan whips his leg on the ring post and manages to convince the fans there’s a chance he would be defeated as he turns all shades of purple when he’s caught in submissions. Bryan’s tactics work out wonderfully again when Brock has him up in an F5 position, but his leg gives out after it had been the focus of Bryan’s attack all match and he manages to transition quickly into the Yes Lock. My favourite moment of the entire match is when Brock breaks the hold of the Yes Lock so Bryan just clubs him in the back of the head and reapplies it. That type of brutality is just rarely seen in WWE. The second time Brock breaks the submission he turns it into an F5, and instead of being cocky he’s learned from his lesson and just pins Bryan for the win.

Ultimately this match had to be my #1 because it has no contemporary when compared to the rest of the world of wrestling in 2018. It’s not one of the many Walter great matches that props up promotions worldwide, it’s not one of the many great Japanese tournament matches, it’s not one of the many times Jonathan Gresham was a shining light in the cesspool of ROH, it’s not one of the many great Takeover matches. It stands alone. It’s the only good Brock Lesnar match of the year, it was the emergence of a new Daniel Bryan in one of his best ever WWE performances, it was the only men’s main event for WWE that actually closed a show on a high note rather than being an embarrassment, it’s the best big man/small man match of the year and it’s a match that completely worked me multiple times on what I was watching. This was a total triumph and an unforgettable match.” -Ed Mills

Literally my biggest dream match of all-time, and something I thought we’d never see, even with Bryan returning to wrestling in the WWE. It somehow lived up to the crazy expectations I had for it, but then again, with it being Brock goddamn Lesnar vs. Daniel f’n Bryan, how could it not? It’s just perfection from the entrances on, loved everything about it. Two of the greatest putting on one of the best matches of all-time & the clear MOTY 2018 in my eyes.” -Heikki Oinonen

Somewhat overshadowed by the angle that followed it; but another great addition to an all-time great rivalry. Tanahashi hasn’t beaten Okada for 2 years, and when he finally does he is just able to steal a win.” -Kevin Chiat

How many times are we going to write about a Tanahashi vs. Okada match? Kevin Kelly noted that Okada has been in six straight Wrestle Kingdom main events, and that unless he won this match, that streak would be broken. He also brought up that Tanahashi hadn’t been able to beat Okada since 2015. Okada looks as if he knows that he statistically has the advantage. It seems like he’s fighting back a smile as he stands in his corner, waiting for the match to begin. Okada is in the midst of his roller coaster year of an identity crisis, but he looks like he’s steeled and ready for one more win over his old nemesis. The match started off with Okada immediately heeling himself, and refusing to give Tanahashi a clean break. He knows how to play the crowd like a fiddle. We got a lot of knee targeting from both men, followed by a submission sequence that was just short enough to not completely make me lose my attention.These two have faced each other so many times that they know how to construct a frenetic late-match sequence to keep you on the edge of your seat. After awkwardly battling for control atop the turnbuckle, Tanahashi pushed Okada down and landed with the hardest looking High Fly Flow I’ve ever seen. He hits another. And another. Tanahashi pins Okada, retaining his briefcase and his shot at Wrestle Kingdom. This was my favorite match of theirs since their G1 time limit draw in 2016.” -Ryan Glaspell

It looked like this would be the end for Hiroshi Tanahashi. Knowing what we know now, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The story this match set-up was perfect, the fading old ace vs. the new ace trying to break the old guy’s record. They worked this match like it would the last they’d ever have, making everything matter. This is the first Tanahashi/Okada match I remember watching as a NJPW fan, and as a result of this match, I went back to watch all of the other ones. Doing that only made me gain appreciation for this match, as this match was the hits, they combined everything they’ve done over the last six years to make one perfect wrestling match. Marvelous.” -Jack Beckmann

Hiroshi Tanahashi felt like that all time great that wanted just one more championship. It felt like Magic Johnson in 1991 against Michael Jordan and The Bulls. The crowd wanted it for him, but he was faced with Kazuchika Okada, and deep down everyone knew that IT WAS NOT HAPPENING. But Tanahashi somehow reeled fans in to make them forget what they knew in this match. This is one of the most emotional matches I’ve ever seen, and at the time we didn’t know this would be the opening chapter of what i’ve nicknamed the “The Belt, The Block, & The Briefcase; referencing their 2018 rivalry. It felt like the epilouge in the battle for The Ace of New Japan Pro Wrestling. Okada was just that damn great as he finished off Tana with a single Rainmaker.” -Rich D. Latta

This was a highly anticipated match with high expectations. To me this match more than delivered. We were treated to an excellent main event that was of full non-stop action. The Golden Lovers have great chemistry whether they’re facing each other or a team.” -Jeremy Donovan

Amazingly, this one doesn’t get as much fan fare as other matches these two had in 2018, I think because many thought they were holding back something for a bigger match at a later date. For me though, this match was everything I wanted from the battle of the Golden lovers. New Japan can sometimes go a little too far with the epic 40+ minute main events, and sometimes I’d much rather a quick 25 minute sprint, especially when you have two guys as risky and spot festy as these two.

While I’m sure they have a better match in them, I loved this.” -Jonathan Phillips

Another good one between Omega and Naito. G1 B Block was loaded and the first night got off to an extremely hot start and set the bar high as hell. Omega and Naito never disappoint.” -Noveliss

Omega and Naito met in the G1 for the third straight year, and for the third straight year it was one of my ten best matches of the year. While most will of course point to Okada I maintain that Naito is *really* Kenny’s best opponent, with the LIJ leader’s more subtle and (frankly) better selling providing a strong counter-weight to Kenny and letting Kenny do what he does best, which is stay on offense. The two also have personalities that just mesh really well as rivals, which is probably why they were able to work an opening few minutes based entirely around posing and spitting and have it absolutely rule.” -John Carroll

The best match Chris Jericho has ever been in. Who knew it would come in a company he hadn’t wrestled for in 20 years, at a point in his career where he felt all but retired? Jericho was just so great here. One of the subtleties I loved was him putting the ref’s son, a Young Lion, in the Liontamer. Not the Walls of Jericho, mind you, but the old WCW-era Liontamer. These guys are part of a very small group of performers that just think about this things on a deeper level than everyone else and the result was spectacular.” -Jeremy Sexton

Nobody knew what Chris Jericho would be like in New Japan. His initial appearances were exciting, but his dad-body did not exactly inspire confidence that he could deliver the kind of main event New Japan fans expect. Chris Jericho, one of my favorite wrestlers of all time, proved everyone wrong. He completely reinvented himself again, becoming a wild, unpredictable brawler. This match set my mind at ease that Jericho could hang in the main event of NJPW, and bring something to the table that no one else was doing.” -August Baker

There were so many matches that took place during WrestleMania Weekend in New Orleans that it was hard to keep track. However, this bout between Matt Riddle and Will Ospreay for the EVOLVE Title was the clear standout from the rest of pack. What’s crazy is that this incredible match almost didn’t happen, as Ospreay nearly missed the entire weekend after a brutal bout with Marty Scurll in New Japan about a week prior. Not only was Ospreay able to make it to New Orleans to take part in several matches, but he still competed at the high level that he’s known for. Meanwhile, Riddle had only just won the EVOLVE Title from Zack Sabre Jr. the night prior. The match itself was twelve minutes of pure insanity. They went right after each other as soon as the bell rang, and the action was nothing short of spectacular. Despite being less than 100%, Ospreay gave it everything he had in an attempt to beat Riddle (who was really vicious at times), but he ultimately came up short. The match was fantastic, and the crowd loved every second of it. Not only did these two steal the show, but they stole the entire weekend.” -Sean A. Sedor

A match is usually helped by a good story or background as to why it is happening, this one didn’t have that and it didn’t matter. A match that was booked as basically a dream match (and thank god they booked it when they did the way the year finished out) these guys went out their and killed it. They just jelled extremely well and had the epitome of a high level 2018 indie match. It’s also worth noting that this happened during mania weekend, and both of them were in the midst of working like a dozen shows.” -Matt “Swarles” Johnsen

The match that turned The Irish Lass Kicker into THE MAN, and the hottest commodity on the WWE main roster. Although Ronda Rousey was main eventing the first all women’s WWE PPV Evolution, Becky and Charlotte was the most looked forward to match on the card, and they more than delivered in their Last Woman Standing plunder brawl, with a creative use of weapons, a heavy pro-Becky crowd despite commentary trying to paint a different picture, and a great callback finish not only to their rivalry, but also to the way Becky’s prior title run ended. An incredible star making performance, and one that will likely have major WrestleMania repercussions.” -Martin Bentley

After a year loaded with manufactured, corporate-driven “first-ever” WWE women’s division milestones, this last woman standing match felt like the first time talent really took the reins in one of these big events, and what resulted was the beast match of the year by a longshot. It was the well-deserved coronation of Becky Lynch as the biggest star in WWE.” -Matt D. Wilson

There is no one in wrestling as explosive as Will Ospreay. There is no one in wrestling as intimidating as Walter. Both Ospreay and Walter have been two of the best workers in the last few years, so theirs is a match made in heaven. They actually had their first match in Defiant a couple of months before this encounter. That was a really good match too, but it felt like the first meeting of the minds, where they started to know each other and build a trust for an eventual bigger battle. This one had higher stakes to begin with, with Ospreay trying to take the OTT Championship from the seemingly undefeatable beast. The structure of the match mirrored the Walter vs Devlin bout, with Ospreay starring as the conquering foreign hero, a testament of how much of a great heel Walter is. Eventually the match kicked into the next gear and Ospreay pulled out some of his best and most impressive moves, with the crowd buying into multiple false finishes, but like in the Devlin match, Walter still won in a convincing fashion. ” -Paco Silva

I only landed in Dublin barely a couple of hours before the show started, so the excitement was heightened heading to the National Stadium, Ireland’s home of amateur boxing. The fact WALTER and Ospreay had a match in Defiant before this one disappointed me a little, even though it was really good, but I needn’t have worried, as the world’s best high-flyer and the world’s best bruiser created magic in front of nearly 2,000 people. Both men played to each other’s strengths in front of one of the hottest crowds I’ve been a part of, and the reaction when Ospreay had his foot on the rope after WALTER’s Fire Thunder Driver was mind blowing live. Everyone lived and died with Ospreay as he took the giant Austrian to the limit, but it took some high-flying from WALTER to end it. This was the most complete Ospreay performance I’ve ever seen, and it was a privilege to do so live in the building along with great fans who were so into everything unfolding in front of them.” -Martin Bentley
