Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
Like I said, I can see why someone hooked on the style would come out of that talking about the emotion in Sasaki's underdog story and praising the teased nearfalls etc. The argument I spoke about regarding the German suplexes-Lariat spot is something I can totally understand a huge fan of that match explaining as the completion of the story of Sasaki refusing to stay down and just hitting a now or never big move. But at the same time the spot has been done to death in much worse cases throughout Japan the past decade and I think at this point it would have to be done in a REALLY creative way for me to think any different towards it.
Basically I'd just say it didn't do enough to convince me that the style was something I can work my way through (I would call it the best out of the 3 matches I saw though, largely because of Sasaki's story of pulling out the big win), but I have no arguments with a staunch BJW fan thinking that is the dog's bollocks.
