Last Call: Top Matches of March 2020



Now that March is officially wrapped up, let’s take a look at what I believe were the best matches the month had to offer. If it looks like I’ve missed a match you can take a look here to see if I have either not seen it or if we’re on different pages. Please forward any disagreements to my Twitter.

This was a crazy month thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. If you’re looking for an escape from the empty arena shows and would like a sense of normalcy, avoid match one, nine and the bonus.
