Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

777 is spot on about the crowd reactions for Punk vs. Jericho - the fans were definitely paying attention & got more into it as the match wore on. That said, I didn't think it was anything special. Punk & Jericho are two guys I struggle to suspend disbelief with 'cos their styles are often clunky & contrived; plus Jericho has negative charisma nowadays.

Segunda - I reckon you'll be pleasantly surprised with Okada vs. Naito. It's a first-class example of using wrestling to tell a story. Not so sure you'll dig Sekimoto vs. Sasaki though. It's a great match with a superbly executed underdog element, but it's still based around them relentlessly battering the hell out of each other.
