Why I Love Wrestling: Match of the Year

This was tough. There were so many good matches this year. We, the fans, were spoiled and spoiled rotten. Some of the best matches of the year were featured in this column. Some we didn’t get to. And my personal runner up of the year well, I really wanted to give it the top spot. You see, I have daughters and in watching them grow and develop into people I want them to be able to do anything they want. I want them to break through the gender stereotypes and glass ceilings they will eventually face. And while Sasha Banks and Bayley had an absolutely incredible match that told an amazing story, it fell just short. Like, by a hair. A thin, old man hair. To Shinsuke Nakamura and Kota Ibushi. The IWGP Intercontinental Championship match between these two at Wrestle Kingdom 9 was an absolute classic. It had everything you could want in a match. The story was well told. The athleticism was insane. The fan response was great. It was quite simply the best match of the year. Check it out below and check back here next week and each and every week following for more coverage on the sport of professional wrestling and why I love it.

Dean DeFalco

Creator of Websites, editor of content, wearer of vests. This man is said to be "The Jack of All Trades".  Dean has his hands in most parts of the website one way or another. The original incarnation of Geekade, "G33k Life", was Dean's brainchild. While Dean can be found on a number of shows like when he was the former co-host of the Stone Age Gamer Podcast or the current host Vest and Friends or talking about video games on YouTube and Twitch, he is the guy behind the scenes making sure that the site does everything it's supposed to every one else can do their job. There's not a problem he can't solve.....or at least punch and scream at until it doesn't exist anymore.
