Adding an Nth to this. It was really good, and I loved how carefully they handled their body positioning and blocking in the final moments so that the ref never saw Sasha was misted until AFTER the match was over and Io had been declared the winner.

Time to update for June!

MOTY:
  • There have been 56 MOTYCs so far, with 6 happening in June.
  • In an interesting twist on the ways these things usually go, NONE of these MOTYCs were from AEW or WWE/NXT.
  • The breakdown of MOTYCs for June was DDT (2), SEAdLINNNG (1) and the return at last of New Japan with 3 MOTYCs.
  • AEW retains its overall lead with the most MOTYCs this year, but New Japan has closed up the gap that was forming during their absence.
  • Two matches registered enough votes to be listed as ALMOST making MOTY Status during June: one from New Japan and one from WWE. The latter was the Randy Orton vs. Edge match from Backlash, meaning that The Greatest Wrestling Match Ever hasn't quite got enough votes to be a Match of the Year Contender for 2020.
  • 5 matches received more than 1 MOTY vote but less than 4 this month: Go Shiozaki vs. Akitoshi Saito (NOAH); Ishii vs. El Desperado (NJPW); #DAMNHEARTS vs. Eruption (DDT); Ibushi vs. ZSJ (NJPW); Tenzan vs. YOSHI-HASHI (NJPW)

WMOTY:
  • There have been 21 WMOTYCs so far this year. 4 in January, 3 in February, 1 in March, 6 in April, 4 in May & 3 in June.
  • The breakdown of WMOTYCs over June were WWE (1) NXT (1) and New Japan (1).
  • Only two matches received more than 1 WMOTY vote but less than the 5 needed: Sheamus vs. Jeff Hardy (WWE); & Orton vs. Edge (WWE).

Honorable Mentions:
  • 46 matches received at least 1 honorable mention vote during June.
  • Of those, 17 received the 7 votes (or 4 MOTY votes) necessary to make the HM list.
  • The breakdown of HM votes for June was:
  • AEW: 9 | NJPW: 7 | WWE: 1 |
