Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
Apologies for the long paragraphs, I like to ramble.
Yup, that would be the match. The best of the bunch I just watched IMO and only behind Lesnar/Cena for worldwide MOTY. Granted I haven't seen Finlay/Callihan EVOLVE and WXW yet but I can't see either of those matches being better than the TXT tag and Lesnar/Cena.
Watched both Okada matches that people loved, vs Naito and vs Tanahashi. Preferred the bulk of the Naito match but thought the finishing stretch in the Tanahashi bout was better, but despite both matches being infinitely better than some of the dross I've seen from Puro recently I wouldn't think of either as a surefire MOTYC. Put it down to my tastes preferring Lesnar/Cena and bloody Lucha brawls instead of Puro title matches in 2012 rather than the Okada matches not being 'good'. Can totally see why anyone who regularly enjoys Puro would love them as much as I've seen, Okada definitely made an impression on me with how everything in his offence seems to ultimately matter and feel part of a strategy, but its going to take something almighty good for a Puro match which isn't FUTEN or Takayama abusing someone to get me fully invested these days.
