It is now time for my February 2022 best matches of the month list. Please keep in mind these are just my opinion of the best matches I saw this month and is not a definitive list and is not the official Wrestling Republic ratings and rankings.
I’m sure there are matches that I may have missed but there are only so many hours in a day and only so much wrestling I can watch. So, please feel free to suggest matches in the comments, as it is possible, I haven’t seen them or maybe they just didn’t make my cut. If I haven’t seen it and I’m able to check it out, it may make my end of year top 25 matches list. If it just didn’t make my cut, if I have time and I’m able to I’ll re-watch the match and re-consider it for my end of the year top 25 matches list.
The top 25 list at the end of the year will be in order and will be made up of my Match of the Month winners, which are guaranteed a spot and the remaining 13 slots will be other top matches from my monthly lists.

MATCH OF THE MONTH: Hangman vs Archer – AEW Dynamite – 2-9-22
As a whole, this month was nowhere nearly as stacked as January was and it wasn’t tough to pick a winner this month. Hangman and Archer beat each other down in their version of a Texas Death match. It wasn’t a traditional Texas Death match, but this match made Hangman look strong and Archer continues to impress as someone that needs to be pushed as a bigger deal than he is in AEW.
