We recently passed the mid-year point for 2019 and WWE has already put on some incredible matches so far. The following is a list of what are, in our opinion, the best WWE matches of 2019, as of August 1st.
All five brands (Raw, SmackDown Live, NXT, NXT UK, and 205 Live) have at least one match that made the cut, which is pretty neat and says a lot about just how loaded the WWE roster is right now. We’ve also included WWE Network links for each match, so you can easily access them and watch for yourself!
