I don't think it quite hit those heights but the first half of the match was some of the best poo poo I've seen all year, and it's already got more than enough nominations vv

Everybody should watch that match!

With another few months of seasoning on Ember's part the rematch could be a MOTYC. It was close! Stiff as gently caress.

Second. The ending was great and seems to be setting up a lengthier feud which I'm excited for. This did a great job of building up Ember too.

When DIY got eliminated first it really took a lot out of the NXT tag match. Nowhere close to the level of the other DIY/Revival Takeover matches, imo

This is such a crazy debate for me but from an entertainment perspective, it kinda is a step above HM. I was incredibly locked in and didn't care that they are leagues apart.

It was one of the funnest matches this year.

So I'm sorry world, but 2nding this.

Yes AJ vs Shane has gotten the nominations for MOTY.... seriously.

There are a couple of matches that are just a single nomination short of a MOTY spot (like L.A. Park vs. Rush), just FYI.

I think the above list is accurate (even with Shane vs AJ on the MOTY list) but if I've missed anything let me know.
