My TV MOTY atm is a tag match from ECW at the start of the year. Not sure if it will hold up, and if it does, I'm not sure it will hold up against some of the other matches I have discovered so far that have been awesome. Got the Regal/Christian ECW match to watch now, and then I can get to that tag match to see if its as awesome as I remembered
Speaking of great tag matches from this year:
Drew McIntyre & Chris Jericho Vs John Morrison & R-Truth - WWE Smackdown 22/01/2010
Match was originally set to be a handicap match, but Teddy Long added R-Truth to it. Just thought I would add that random bit of info for ya
Babyface shine period to start things off, but things really pick up when Jericho takes down R-Truth from the apron, and McIntyre and Jericho can start to heel it up and control the match and John Morrison, essentially turning it into the handicap match that was supposed to happen.
Jericho getting off the apron to tell the announcers that Drew is a true champion while Drew is punishing Morrison in the ring is... well, its just super
God bless WWE for still having STF in their tag matches. Heels controlling, babyfaces providing hope spots, and heels preventing the hot tag as often as possible. Its what I wanted to see during the MCMG/Beer Money matches, but instead they opted for nothing more than MOVES~!, and as such they ended up sucking. Not this match though! Its far from sucking.
Drew and Jericho play complete dicks absolutely perfectly in this match, from cheapshotting Morrison at every opportunity while they are stood on the apron, to looking smug as fuck because the match is going their way. Morrison does a great job as the FIP, selling the beatdown nicely and making me believe that he really WANTS that tag. Any time he gets some offence in or reverses something, he goes for the tag straight away rather than trying to build more momentum for himself or trying to get a pin or some stupid shit like you sometimes see. Everything they are doing in the match is just STF 101, and any tag teams in WWE, TNA and anywhere else should really study the damn formula more often.
The hot tag pays off nicely, as the crowd get pretty hot when Morrison is crawling over, and give Truth a pretty good pop for tagging in finally.
Liked the finish, with Morrison giving Jericho a taste of his own medicine and cheapshotting him, allowing Truth to hit his axe kick thing and pick up the win!
Great tag match. Plenty of time, STF done extremely well, great FIP performance from Morrison, and a nice payback ending. Exactly what I look for in tag matches. Another very strong TV MOTYC.
