    Thoughts on this? I'm disappointed to see Tanahashi so high he never really set the world on fire for me. Randy actually deserved to be number 1 imo I can't recall a match which wasn't at least 3 * from him the past calendar year.
    DB being 39 is questionable also he hasn't been as good as he can be but can people seriously name a match Davey Richards had that Bryan hasn't matched in 2011?

    So thoughts on the listing who would you have put higher / lower or added to the list who aren't there at all?
     
  2. That list is terrible. Sheamus is above DB? Randy Orton is spectacular. He doesn't get enough credit for his ring work (By the IWC) because he's already a big star and should definitely be #1. Christian should be a bit higher. DB has had so many matches though this year that are candidates for MOTY, could of done more but that doesn't mean he should be that low. Hiroshi shouldn't be top, no way. Kurt Angle is probably higher than he should be too, he's not been as good as he's getting old. Dolph Ziggler should be top 10. I'm shocked Miz is on the list, though he has put on some good matches this year.
     
  3. Agree with most of this basically also how the hell is Generico not in the top 5? He's not had a bad match for years.
     
  4. Davey Richards is #3 too? Sigh. Jeff Jarret is in the fucking list for god sake lmao.
     
  5. Angle above Punk?
    No thank you, good sir.
     
  6. This also Kurt is better execution but lacks basic psychology for me. He's just hitting the spots without much correlation and has been for a good while imo.
     
  7. Kurt has obviously declined due to his age. The more I look at this list the more it angers me. I just don't understand why Randy Orton isn't 1, Punk isn't higher, DB isn't higher, Ziggler isn't in top 10, Jarret is on it, Generico isn't higher... argh.
