For me, there are probably only about 5 matches on that list that I think genuinely deserved the 5 star treatment: Bate vs. Dunne, Black vs. Dream, Styles vs. Cena, New Day vs. the Usos at HIAC and Omega vs. Naito.

Omega vs. Okada was great but it really started dragging after about 30 minutes or so and it felt like they were just purposely extending the match longer than it needed.

Styles vs. Lesnar showed just how good AJ Styles is even at 40 years of age, he's probably done the best work of his career over the course of the last 4 years or so. What took away from this match is that we all knew he wasn't going to beat Lesnar.

WarGames was a great chaotic brawl that, in my opinion, was an overall improvement over the original concept but matches of this type don't usually win MOTY with so much focus being put, and rightly so, on the carnage.

The SummerSlam hoss fight was a hell of an outing that was carried primarily by Reigns, Joe and Strowman. However, you just knew that nothing short of a nuke right to the face was causing Lesnar to lose.

The New Day vs. The Usos at the SummerSlam kickoff was a huge surprise, easily the best match of any WWE kickoff show.

Styles vs. Balor was a fantastic treat, but there was no build or storyline to it. They put forth a tremendous effort but ultimately, the match didn't matter when you get right down to it.

I'm leaning towards Bate vs. Dunne at NXT TakeOver: Chicago and if there was one flaw in the match, it's that the build wasn't stronger.

I cant be shaken from Dunne Vs Bate, but War Games made me hesitate. What an absolutely brutal shit show barnburner of a match.

Gotta go with AJ Styles vs. Cena. What a match. It showed why Styles has risen so fast in the WWE and why Cena is genuinely the best wrestler of the past decade. Great match.

How did Revivial vs DIY vs AOP not even make the list? There goes my vote for MOTY.

Cena vs Styles. Summerslam 4 pack challenge was a close second.

Wow Bálor vs Styles and Bálor vs Lesnar made the list. Definitely pretty shocked on the first one, could make an argument for the second but I feel WWE have had better matches. I want to vote New Day vs Usos at Hell in the Cell because I think the tag team division deserves a lot of credit this year and for two teams who have wrestled each other in the hundreds put on potentially their best match against each other ever. The match itself made me excited for more tag team/multi man hell in the cell matches in the future.

However I gotta give it to Okada vs Omega at Wrestle Kingdom. JackHammer made a good point that it started to drag at the end I think it was just so highly anticipated and certainly delivered. I don’t even watch New Japan but the Omega/Okada matches have me a reason to.

If I was voting

3: Cena/Styles
2: New Day vs Usos HiTC
1: Okada/Omega
