The best matches I saw in 2019

I watched a lot of pro wrestling in 2019, and that’s the thing: pro wrestling, not just WWE. It’s the first year I’ve branched out in a rather unprecedented way. I put real, hard-earned money toward two other wrestling promotions this year: NJPW and the start-up AEW.

Here are some of my favorite matches I saw this year, mostly in the order in which I saw them. That said, AJ/Rollins was my favorite match I saw.
