I’m tweaking the match of the month formula a bit for July, ditching the top ten list to do it in chronological order.

Technically, WrestleMania happened this month, but we all know I didn’t watch that. However, I have managed to get together ten of my favourite matches and let’s just say that you might spot a theme.
