Match of the Month – March 2016

Mark Osborne

Mayu Iwatani and Io Shirai vs. Kairi Hojo and Meiko Satomura — Stardom The Highest (March 21)

Just a great tag team match, maybe the best of the year, regardless of promotion. Considering the four women involved, that shouldn’t be a surprise. Satomura was jumping off the balcony, Io was hitting moonsaults, Mayu hit a wicked wicked bottom rope dropkick on Meiko, and Kairi got the shit kicked out of her (as always, in the most excellent fashion). You could easily argue these are the four best women wrestlers in the world. You’d be doing yourself a tremendous disservice to not check this out

Honorable Mention:

The New Day vs. A.J. Styles and Chris Jericho — RAW March 7

Tetsuya Naito vs. Tomohiro Ishii — NJPW New Japan Cup quarter finals

A.J. Styles vs. Kevin Owens — WWE RAW March 21

Thunder Rock (Io Shirai & Mayu Iwatani) Vs Meiko Satomura & Kairi Hojo, Stardom ‘The Highest 2016’: This was easily the match I enjoyed watching the most in the month of March and also one of my favorite tag team matches of the whole year. Thunder Rock is one of the best tag teams in the world and they’re going against two more of the best in the world in Satomura and Hojo, excellent chemistry, a truly awesome match. I highly suggest checking out this out on Stardom World if you get the chance to (it’s only $5 dollars a month).

Matthew Macklin

Chris Hero vs Tracy Williams – Evolve 56

This was Hero at his best, bringing Williams to a truly star making performance.  Hero made Williams look like a beast, and even though Williams didn’t win the match, he came out with people talking about him.  This was an incredibly hard hitting match, and one that didn’t get enough praise.

Not a boxer but a pro wrestling fan. If there’s a ring I’ll watch it, so naturally I have a lot of opinions (complaints).
