Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
Kenny Omega vs Hiroshi Yamato - AJPW Jr Heavyweight Championship 3/1: ****
What a good match. I found myself asking myself the whole match how Kenny Omega hasn't been signed by either WWE or TNA. I know he was signed to a development deal at one point but he is just so good right now. He is able to portray his character, either a really good heel like he was here or an over-the-top babyface, better than almost anyone else out there and he does it within the confines of a match. Yamato beats up Nakazawa every time he tries to get involved which I thought was great. I saw Yamato's match vs. KAI last year which is my only familiarity with him and I thought he was phenomenal in that match and this just proved it wasn't a fluke. A very good match and being I have only seen a few WWE matches so far this year, this must be my MOTY so far but it will probably stay in my top 5 for a couple of months.
