Matches & Moments of the Year Tracking

In order to help the process for awards at the end of the year, and also just because its lots of FUN, this thread will be stickied, and is for any suggestions you have as we go along for the best and worst matches of the year, as well as the best and worst moments/decisions of the year.


As you can imagine this will help a great deal by the end of the year when its time to nominate for awards, especially when you're trying to rack your brains for all those horrible matches and segments you had so thankfully forgotten about in the first place. Its also a help if you just want to look back on, or maybe look up, some of the best stuff from the year that you might have forgotten about.


So yes, here in this mighty thread we will hold the greatness, and the not-so-greatness, of 2009. Just post in here if you have any suggestions for a match or a moment or a decision, whether best or worst, and I'll add them to the lists.


Keep in mind that this thread is in the larger US Forum, and therefore normal spoiler rules apply. If whatever you're posting is so monumentally good, or so monumentally bad, that you cant possibly wait the three days until the spoilers lift, then be a good sport and spoiler tag it.

Oh, and a reminder that this is NOT a discussion thread. Any post challenging anyone else's suggestions, or basically any post that isnt a suggestion, will be deleted. If you think that such-and-such match actually sucked, or if you think Kute Kip really belongs in the main event, by all means go post about it in that show's thread or in the Comments thread, but dont post it here.

Not sure if it needs to be spoilered or whatever but just to be on the safe side...


RAW Spoilers


I think the whole shennanigans at the end of this weeks show deserve a mention for best moment, from Shane getting punted to Steph's RKO and HHH coming out. Not sure what you'd call it though.


Come to think of it, the Piper promo from that show also more than deserves a mention.

I agree with Citizen Kane.


Also the decision with Edge coming into the Raw Elimination Chamber is one of the better so far this year.

I agree both Elimination Chamber matches and the decision to put Edge in the Raw chamber have to be two of the best so far - definitely unexpected an have shaken things up a little.


I also really enjoyed the title match between Beth and Melina earlier in the year - when Melina won back the title. I thought it was a pretty solid match from the ladies.

Another nomination: The Chris Jericho/Ricky Steamboat stuff from Raw on Monday Night.

All sorts of awesomeness.

Worst Decision:

Spending 2008 building up Kozlov as this inhuman power house powerhouse wrestler with an undefeated streak and then ending it on Monday Night Raw in a match with no real build-up, against an opponent who really didn't need to be put over. March 9th, 2009

I would like to nominate it as exactly the opposite. It was at best a wasted opportunity, the announce team didn't even hype it and pretty soon he was jobbing to Swagger. I agree it was nice to see him back though.



As far as Best matches go, I thought Ultimate X was really good at Destination X.



Best moment would be HBK's excellent Undertaker type entrance on Smackdown

Can I make a suggestion of Edge's promo on Raw after he won the Elimination chamber, specifically his "hey little fella? Know what you're gonna be when you grow up? WRONG!" moment :)
