What is the greatest match from 1990? Is it The Ultimate Warrior vs Rick Rude from Summerslam? Maybe it’s Jumbo Tsuruta vs Mitsuharu Misawa from the Super Power Series? Or you might think it’s Ric Flair vs Lex Luger from WrestleWar?

Now it’s your chance to have your say, you have until April 17th at 5pm eastern time to send me a list of 25 matches of what you feel are the best 25 matches of the year.

After the lists have been sent in I will be awarding each match points based on their position on the list, so first place will get 25 points, 2nd will get 24 etc….

I will then add all the points totals up and then do a countdown to see what we as a forum believe to be the greatest match of the year.

April 17th is the deadline so you have four weeks to go back and watch any matches to help you do this list, you may also use this thread to recommend matches.

For sure Crocker I'll draw up a list from 90 after work for sure no problem. I'm sure Warrior vs Hogan from Wrestlemania 6 is in my Top 5.

Seems like a great excuse to binge some 1990s international wrestling I haven't seen

I plan on doing this for other years after too but leaving ten year gaps to vary it up a bit so after 1990 I will do 2000 then 2010 and 2020 before going back to 1991.

Exquisite. I remember doing these on WC, or something very similar. I look forward to submitting a list and seeing the countdown.

I wish I saw this earlier because I'm notoriously bad at finishing projects and there's like three weeks left, but logging onto this site for the first time in forever and wanting to getting involved must mean it was fate. So I have three weeks but I'm in.
