wrestling fanAndrew Greene, a self-described “internet wrestling journalist” from Miami, has already amassed a list of five “Match of the Year” candidates, despite the year having started mere hours ago.

Since the stroke of midnight on December 31, Greene has been scouring the internet in search of match reports from professional wrestling organizations around the globe in the past 20 hours.

Although Greene hasn’t actually seen any of the bouts on his so-called “2019 M.O.T.Y. Shortlist,” he is confident that at least one of the following will receive unanimous Match of the Year honors within the next 364 days:

  • Taiji Ishimori vs. Atsushi Kotoge (Pro Wrestling NOAH, Kyoto, Jan. 1, 2019)
  • Gregory Iron vs. Josh Alexander (Alpha-1 Wrestling, Hamilton, Jan. 1, 2019)
  • Dick Justice vs. Joey Ryan (AIW, Cleveland, Jan. 1, 2019)
  • Tetsuya Naito vs. Muriyama Norimoto (New Japan Pro Wrestling, Kobe, Jan. 1, 2019
  • Rickey Shane Page vs. David Arquette (NCW, Concord, NC, Jan. 1, 2019)

Greene, who is considering hollering to his parents to bring down some grilled cheese sandwiches soon, has written on several online wrestling forums that he has compiled “the definitive must-see wrestling list of 2019.”

Friends and family describe Greene as “in desperate need of a new hobby.”
