Default Match of the Year Tracking Thread 2017

This hasn't been done in years on this site, but I think its a handy way to help organize all of the great matches that happen throughout the year, as well as a really cool tool for people to use to look for great matches that they might have missed, or who want to check out the best matches from promotions that they don't regularly watch. It could also be helpful to remind people of the top contender bouts when the end of year award nominations arrive in several months.

Since we're already a third of the way through 2017, I'm gonna build a little starting list of contenders that I believe belong legitimately in the conversation for the title of year's best:

NJPW
Okada v. Omega WK11

Naito v. Elgin New Beginning Osaka

Omega v. Ishii New Japan Cup Night 2

Okada v. Shibata Sakura Genesis

Omega v. Ishii Wrestling Dontaku

WWE
Cena v. Styles Royal Rumble

ROH
Hardy's v. Young Bucks Supercard of Honor XI


Feel free to make a case for any other matches that I didn't list. I could see the tag title match from Takeover Orlando, Ishii and Shibata from the NJ cup, a couple other Okada matches, the Rumble and Elimination Chamber matches for those who like the big multi-man starpower-filled WWE gimmick matches, among others being matches that people could make a case for.

As the year progresses, if a new match happens that you feel has an argument as being the year's best, come here and add it on! Also remeber that this post is in the non-spam section, so be sure to give some thoughts on the match and why you posted it.
