    What's your guys favourite moment from wrestling this past year? We've seen a lot of crazy stuff happen in Professional Wrestling over the past year, some have been good and some have been bad. We've seen AJ Styles wrestle for two different promotions big shows in WrestleMania 32 and Wrestle Kingdom 10 and win the WWE Championship in one calender year and we had the a Brand Split as well as the Cruiserweight Classic as well as WWE bringing back the Crusierweight Division. And we've seen a rise in the Women's Division as we saw the first ever Women's Hell In a Cell match between Charlotte and Sasha Banks. We've also seen Winnipeg Native Kenny Omega win the G1 Climax becoming the first foreign man to win the tournament. In ROH, we've seen Jay Lethal's lengthy title reign come to an end to Bullet Club's Adam Cole, recently a Colt Cabana heel turn. In TNA, we've seen Matt Hardy showcase is Broken Brillaince in the Final Deletion with Brother Nero aka his brother Jeff.

    Here's my favourite moments from WWE:

    For me personally, it was seeing Raw in Toronto live the night after Survivor Series, plus I got to see my favourite wrestler, Bo Dallas win on the Superstars taping beforehand.

    AJ Styles' debut. WWE botched the revel but it was still cool to see him come out.

    Yeah most of their crew were stuck in snowstorm in like the upper eastcoast, which is why they botched it.

    I like how no one mentioned Goldberg beating Lesnar in 1:22 bell to bell, that's also was a great moment of 2016.

    Well WWE were close on plenty of times to get a 5 star match. But since 2010 Punk vs Cena at MITB 2011 still remains the only 5 star match rated by Big Dave Meltzer.

    All had a significance to the match, Punk leaves the company at MITB 2011 only to comeback before SummerSlam. Badd Blood HIAC had Kane debut, Bret and Stone Cold had the double turn with Austin passing out, SummerSlam 1994 was a clinic between two brothers who really committed to their characters and Micheals and Ramon I was the match that put the ladder matches on the map.
