Greatest Match Ever Project

Recommended Posts

I know my opinion is far away from being important so I'm going to tell it once : WM 35 deadline is ok for me. But of course, it's the view of people who are a lot invested in like Grimmas, bossrock, Superstar Sleeze, Cap etc. that matters.

I think the Mania 35 Deadline is for the best. Otherwise, I will just keep extending my scope. I am going to re-watch all of All Japan 90s starting on February 1st and that should give me plenty of time in March to re-watch some stuff. 

Yeah, I do feel like a dick sometimes writing my reviews nitpicking awesome matches. Normally, I would just praise Liger/Sano or Liger/Samurai, but yesterday I felt like such an elitist prick dissecting two excellent matches. That being said I do love watching great pro wrestling and am very excited about finishing this project.

I'm not voting but you should know that the form link you posted doesn't work.

Will be pretty interesting reading the results, cool project.

Copy and paste the link into a search/address bar, then it works.

I plan on submitting a ballot, although I'm certain that nobody will be happy with the final results. Nobody ever is with these kinds of projects.

Probably but the process has been a lot more enjoyable and civil than GWE.

Reminder: There is approximately one week left to submit a ballot. Submissions will be closed at the end of WrestleMania next Sunday.

Is every match with a thread in the nominee folder fair game? There are quite a few matches there that aren't listed on the index of nominees.

Yes, sorry still doing some catch-up. But yes, everything in the Nominees section is eligible to vote for.

I wouldn't worry about in fighting. Its a smaller project that I think has involved a little less emotional investment.  Plus, I think the idea that we plan to do it every year to update our lists and continue watching new things helps a bit. It doesn't feel as final. 

Anything in the nominations is fair game.  We are going to try to clean things up this summer. Honestly, it got away from all of us. The organization has been the biggest thing honestly. I know I have ZERO experience heading up anything like this.  We are sort of going on the honors system. If you want to vote for something that is documented on the board and you think it has met the minimum qualifications for nomination (three votes for or one solid paragraph explaining the nomination from someone) go ahead. We aren't looking to keep matches out. With any luck this will be sorted a bit more clearly next time around.

 

Be sure to get your votes in before the chaos starts this weekend. Ballots are closed at the end when the lights go out on Wrestlemania.

 

If anyone has any questions message myself or another mod. I - for one - am over there (Cap) a good bit more while we close this out.

Glad to hear it. There are a couple of matches that would be locks for my ballot but aren't in the nominee section. Here are the threads nominating them. It looks to me like they qualify.

I'm glad this is going to be a yearly thing because there are four matches that would've been in my top 30 (one top 10) that haven't even been nominated. And of course I entirely blame myself for taking for granted that they would be!

Yeah, I am glad we can work out the kinks and not feel like this is "THE LIST".

 

Plus, tastes change, people will be exposed to new stuff, hopefully we will get new members with new opinions as we go, and there will always be new great matches.... so I think a yearly list will be interesting

I kinda want to put Barnett Suzuki from yesterday on my list.... is that possible 

If you give it 1-3 good paragraphs then yes, it automatically moves to the list of nominees.
