or at least it’s final until someone points out 5 more matches I should’ve watched.

My reviewing scale goes horrible -> poor -> eh -> ok -> good -> great -> excellent, though I reserve the right to cheat the scale whenever necessary. The point of this list is not to list every good match everyone had this year, or to rank anything, but it’s to give a rough guide of which makes are worth going out of your way to check out.

If you don’t watch a lot of lucha libre, but want to see the best it had to offer, you want the Excellent matches (13). If you’re looking for more, or someone in particular, check out the Great matches (34). If there’s a video online available for the match (and I’ve found a working link), it’s linked on the match name.
