Ring of Honor Match of the Year - 2013

Vote Now!
With Final Battle just weeks away, it's time to decide 2013's ROH Match of the Year! Narrowing the contenders to a selection of ten was no easy task, but now you have the chance to vote on your choice for the year's best, most memorable match.  
 
This year - more than any other in in ROH's decade-plus history - truly defined HONOR.  Final Battle 2012 was called "Doomsday" for a reason: champion Kevin Steen was on mission to end ROH by raining chaos and mayhem and his Ladder War victory over El Generico could have had apocalyptic consequences for the company.  However, Ring of Honor rallied Steen's enemy forces, who called themselves SCUM and promised destruction.  This rivalry produced some of our Match of the Year contenders, a series of battles elevated by the personal animosity between the honorable and the SCUM of professional wrestling.  Finally, SCUM was defeated in a Steel Cage Warfare match that changed the landscape of ROH for the remainder of the year.  
 
With honor restored, the second half of 2013 featured athletic, competitive matches that proved Ring of Honor really is the best wrestling in the world. Jay Briscoe was forced to vacate the World Championship he finally won from Kevin Steen, necessitating a title tournament. Out of the tournament rose Adam Cole. Cole's title reign is only months old, yet his new, harder edge has yielded several memorable battles.  All of the current Ring of Honor champions, including Adam Cole, faced off against the their top challengers in a non-stop 73 minute "Champions vs. All-Stars" tag match in Chicago Ridge that many were calling potential Match of the Year before it even began.
 
A Ladder War.  An impromptu tag title match that shook the entire division.  World Title defenses.  Steel Cage Warfare.  It took days of deliberation and argument to narrow down the list to what we feel encompasses the ten best Ring of Honor matches from this year.  Of course, there were many matches that just missed the cut: Roderick Strong vs. Taiji Ishimori, Kyle O'Reilly vs. Eddie Edwards, Davey Richards vs. Ricky Marvin, and more.  Just last weekend, Jimmy Jacobs and Adam Cole waged war in Dearborn in a match that arguably deserves to be on this list.  But with such stiff competition, we had to narrow it down to the definitive ten. Now it's up to YOU to decide number one! 
 
You have until December 1st to select from this top 10 list.  Then, the options will narrow down to the top 5 contenders. Final voting will conclude on December 6th.  Don't wait! Be sure your opinion is heard! 
 
The fan voted 2013 Ring of Honor Match of the Year will be revealed on December 28th on the end of the year television episode.  In fact, the 2013 Match of the Year will be broadcast at the main event of that special TV event!
