    Was it that great? Seemed like they took something organic in the fans’ longterm respect for Kofi and made it pretty heavy handed with him suddenly getting big gauntlet wins out of nowhere, knowing some people will forgive that in the moment at Mania.

    I think it was a great tease of him getting the wins to go to Mania only for Vince to refuse to acquiesce and put another block in his way. And the touch that his New Day partners had to win in order for him to final get the shot was a great, simple change to a fairly normal stack the odds story. The match was a pretty great pay off too.

    I agree, considering the main focus after the chamber was Kofi Vs Vince and some weird meta racism angle, the story was all over the place going into Wrestlemania. Great match? of course, great feud? not for me.

    I voted for Cody Vs Jericho which I thought had several great segments and really built up a big match feel for a world title that I think helped draw business to an otherwise uninteresting show.

    Tessa Vs OVE for me includes too many dud wrestlers and the climax of the angle hasn't even happened yet.

    I think the payoff for Bryan vs Kofi masked the flaws of the feud itself. It was too much at times, not as bad as the Women's Title feud. But there were lots of complaints about this angle at the time with the racism sub plot and another McMahon authority angle.

    Yeah. This is one where the winner was probably my last choice lol. I maintain that Sami vs. Tessa deserved this one.

    I agree, the pay-off was a massive high and helps make some of the shittier parts of the build easier to forgive.

    2019 really did not have any really strong fueds. Think I voted for Bryan vs Kofi but that was purely on the strength of the 2 matches they had and the payoff. The week to week build was pretty blah. Cody vs Jericho was the opposite - great build but the match was forgettable. Could have seen myself voting Tessa vs Sami if I| watched Impact more and didn't think the rest of OVE are trash.

    Kofi/Bryan wasn't perfect (There was zero need to get Vince involved) but i think it was worked well enough, the whole thing felt fairly organic and the ending was done to perfection.

    It's been a down year for feuds in the mainstream companies. My favourite stuff like Starr Vs Walter, Devlin and Janela has all come on the indies that will just never win awards like these.

    AEW would kill in this category next year if they didn't rush through feuds and do them one match and done. Imagine if they didn't tail off Inner Circle Vs The Elite after All Out, or let Cody concentrate on just the one rival for a few months.

    I didn't even realise that Elite vs IC was over tbh. Didn't they tease Wargames for that match as well? Seems like something that should be ongoing.

    And I agree. This was not a great year for feuds on a high level. And the ones I'd pick are probably ones that I alone would pick.

    I still believe Sami and Tessa’s feud is the best of the listed feuds. This basically kept the lights on for Impact
