January (Nominations)

Post by Rich Kraetsch » Mon Feb 01, 2016 3:49 pm

We're making a few big changes to Match of the Month in 2016 starting with the nomination process. Last year, we allowed people to nominate via a Google form, which was fine but there were some issues with people sending in multiple ballots and a general lack of understanding on a few other things. We're going to tighten that up a bit and have most of Match of the Month contained on these forums. This will help reward all of you who frequent the forums here and are apart of this great community. The process for nominations will now simply be two mentions in this thread to get into the voting pool.

Anyway, that's it for the house-keeping, you'll see more changes as the process goes on. In the meantime, get to nominating, what were your favorite matches from the month of January?

Owens/Ambrose from the Rumble and, honest, Owens/Swagger and Rusev/Ryback from the Main Event last Tuesday. Maybe my three favorite WWE matches this month. I don't know if the last two will make my top 50 at the end of the year, but I'm nominating them because I think the effort the four guys did for those two matches is something they should be rewarded for by nominating them.

Kamataichi vs. Maximo from 1/1 that aired on Lucha Azteca not last weekend but the weekend before is great too.

How many matches can one person nominate? Is it still three max or more?

Throw the Doi Darts match from the 1/13 Dragon Gate show on there too. Can't believe I forgot about that.
