re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread
Yeah, no shit. It wasn't great at all.
1. Nakamura vs. Sakuraba - MOTY. Similar yet superior to Brock/Cena in my opinion. I was worried after the initial dry rolling but boy oh boy, doubters be damned. Don't want to spoil it so see for yourself. ****3/4
2. Suzuki vs Nagata - Refreshing counters, good limb work, Nagata's best performance in years, Suzuki at his best, expression as they played to the camera like two years ago but I prefer this to that match. ****1/4+
3. Makabe vs Shibata - A best case scenario for this pairing. It was fast, furious and arguably the best performance of Makabe's career. A great moment when they both decide to take it back inside. I'm shocked by just how smoothly it all worked. ****-****1/4
The rest of WK:
5. BATT vs TenCozy
7. KES vs. S&G
somewhere near the the bottom of the barrel: Shelton/Tanaka
