Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
Kris Travis vs Dave Mastiff - PCW Guild Wars
Finally a great Mastiff match from 2012 Mastiff's a super fatty bulldozer that WWE so need to pick up. Or even just get a tour in Japan. He's so under utilised just working the UK Indy Scene for a guy with his size and his talent. Travis is a super babyface worker on top of being an amazing goofball heel with Kirby. Travis is great too. So you've got 2 great workers and they work a really well structured match. Wrestling is simple at times. Mastiff's a great bully in control of the loveable babyface and makes the control segment rule. They work a really nifty finishing stretch too.
Akira Tozawa vs El Ligero - PCW Guild Wars
Workrate match of the year for me so far. Ligero isn't very good at all but Tozawa is so bossy in this and they work a well structured workrate match. Finishing sequence is great and the near falls work a treat without ever feeling like they're kicking it out of stuff because that's the cool thing to do these days.
Loving the PCW reviews - have you been to a show yet? Every card since Guild Wars has been really good & the atmosphere last weekend was rowdy as hell.
All their hype is focused on the December 'supershow' with Morrison, Masters, Eugene, Edwards & Elgin, but the January line-up already looks amazing: Travis vs. T-Bone Bullrope match (!), Kirby & Ligero vs. Young Bucks, and 'cruiserweight' Dave Rayne vs, Noam Dar.
It's totally bizarre having such an entertaining promotion appear on my doorstep.
