I’ll be honest, I’ve never seen Max wrestle, but everything I have seen of them made me very excited for that match. Would it live up to my high expectations? Time to find out.

Somehow, we’ve finished up another month, which means it’s time for my favourite matches from the last 31 days. As usual, there is probably all sorts of cool stuff that I’ve missed, so if you have anything to recommend, pop it in the comments below and feed my disturbing wrestling habit.
