I’m starting a series to finish out the year that will look back at some of the best matches in 2016. Today we start with wrestling announcer and super fan Nick Maniwa, whose favorite match came from NXT.
“My favorite match of 2016 was DIY vs the Revival in 2 out of 3 falls for the NXT Tag Team titles from NXT’s Takeover Toronto. Just a damn near perfect tag team contest. All the story telling of years past with the moves of today. I was on the edge of my seat for the whole match. Perfect ending to their feud.”
See an excerpt of the match here, then go to the Network to watch in its entirety!
Donovan Dijak of Ring of Honor has started something good, and it seems to be catching on.
Dijak began using GoFundMe.com to create fundraisers for charity, asking fans and friends to team with him and do some good. It was such a success, TNA’s Michael Bennett and NXT’s Tommaso Ciampa have jumped on board to help.
This month, Wrestler’s Unite has chosen the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan as their charitable cause. As stated on their GoFundMe page, “The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is located in the heart of Flint, MI and has established the Flint Response Fund, which is designated to procuring and distributing bottled water to the residents of Flint.”
The new campaign is only a day old and has already reached nearly 20% of their goal, and all net ends will be going to the Food Bank. If you would like to help, please go to the Wrester’s Unite for Flint, MI page and donate now!
