Thought that it's time to bring back the MOTY tracking thread. I love the MOTY lists & they are good tool for keeping up with the wrestling. Here's mine so far:

Not out of any particular choice, but all my MOTY this year are women's matches.

Aja Kong vs. AKINO vs. Hiroyo Matsumoto vs. Kaho Kobayashi vs. Mayumi Ozaki vs. Sonoko Kato [OZ Academy Openweight Title #1 Contendership Last Woman Standing Match 31 August]

This match had everything you could want from pro wrestling and really was a complete theatrical experience, with everything from low comedy to justice, to perseverance. Kaho Kobayashi in particular put on a performance with so much heart it was impossible not to root for her.

Tessa Blanchard (c) vs. Mercedes Martinez Phoenix Of RISE Title Iron Man Match, RISE 10 19th october]

Actually there were two Blanchard vs Martinez iron Woman matches, the first was a MOTYC too. This one went a whopping 75 minuted to become a record breaking match. There were so many storyline threads here that weaved their way in and out of the spectacle that it made for enthralling viewing. Blanchard sold so well and Martinez was on point as a dominant vet. Long, but worth it.

Miyu Yamashita (c) vs. Yuu [TOKYO Princess Of Princess Title Match, TJPW, 25th August]
TJPW has a reputation for focusing more on characters and idol-lite stuff than matches, but this match and many others this year (particularly from the likes of Yuka Sakazaki, Shoko Nakajima and Mizuki) showed that they are more than just a pretty face. Yamashita and Yuu gave us a fairly short match which was enthralling blend of shoot style grappling and hard hitting strikes.

I'll toss in my list because I saw an obscene amount of wrestling in comparison to my other years.
