The Best Wrestling Matches of 2017

Friday, December 23, 2016

2016 was here.

Every match I've ever rated 5 stars is here.

Every WWF/E 4 1/4+ match I've ever rated is here.

Each year I look to record every 4 star match and up I see. 

You'll see 3 lists.  Every 4 1/2+ match, the best 4 star WWE matches of the year, and then every other 4 star match, those will be unranked, just listed as I see them. The 2017 wrestling year starts in December, 2016.
