August Match of the Month Nominations/Discussion

Post by TCMitchell » Mon Aug 01, 2016 6:53 am

August is setup to be a MASSIVE month with lots of great shows/matches etc.(With the final dates of the G1 Climax and SummerSlam weekend)

The key point of this project is to let everyone know what great wrestling they need to be checking out! I can tell you first hand that this project has introduced me to plenty of wrestlers/promotions that I never watched previously!

So, we need YOUR nominations! If you saw a match that you think was great that took place in August 2016 or took place before August, but didn't air until August then nominate it here!

Any match that receives two nominations will be added to our voting pool at the end of the month. We then utilize a Head-to-Head (H2H for short) voting type system set up by the great, Josh Engleman to determine the TOP five matches of the month which will be featured in my monthly column! (If this month does shape up to be as great as it can be, I may extend it to a top 10 like I did for WrestleMania weekend)

Without further ado! Tell us what matches you thought were great!

Thanks to Garuda and Head Cheese for running the last two months worth of MOTM threads!

Nakajima/Naito
Elgin/YOSHI-HASHI
Omega/Shibata

All from G1 Day 12. Not quite MOTY candidates, but I consider them all as MOTM candidates. They'll all probably get lost in the shuffle, but I had them all at **** 1/4.
