In our latest Twitter feedback poll, I asked our 6000+ followers what their favorite wrestling match was from 2012. As with our recent Mayan apocalypse question, there were a lot of common responses. Lesnar/Cena, Richards/Elgin and Tanahashi/Suzuki topped the list, a refreshing smattering from across the most well-known groups running shows today. Interestingly enough, not a single match from Impact was picked by anyone.

Without further adieu, here's some of your feedback on your favorite wrestling matches from the last 12 months.
