2017 Match of the Year Countdown: Intro & List of matches

Pro wrestling is good. I have been keeping a list of good wrestling matches I watched but the list is an all too accurate reflection of our human fallibility and likely has many omissions. Here are the top 20 matches I watched in 2017, are at least a close approximation to that. I will be adding longer reviews/reflections about (most of) these matches as the week goes on.

EDIT: I forgot to include the numbers so please know that Dragon Lee vs. Takahashi was my favorite match of 2017, with the rest descending from there. As I write about the matches below I will add a link to those posts on the name of the match.
