Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

Nice to see this taking off.

First 08 match I've watched, so it's my de facto leader, but it's probably going to stand as a low end contender at the end of the year too.

IWGP 3rd Generation Title: Kurt Angle (c) vs. Yuji Nagata - ****1/4

Great match, built off so many things. Between Kurt's role as a dickish but talented foreigner holding their title and Nagata as the hero trying to save it, this was astounding as a base. What made it even better is Nagata's ability to negate a lot of Kurt's more annoying tendancies and create a nicely paced little match. Between selling the leg like a champ and making perfectly timed comebacks, it's no wonder Nagata is considered one of the best in the world right now. The finish was smart, making Kurt look good for getting a clean win and capitalizing on earlier work while protecting Nagata, making it look like it was only one slim mistake which brought him defeat. Good stuff all around.

THIS MAN SPEAKS TRUTH!

I agree, the match is quite unfairly hated on.

TNA
Angle vs Cage - Final Resolution - ****
Kim vs Kong - Final Resolution - ***1/2
Cage vs Styles vs Joe - Impact - ***1/4-***1/2

WWE
Royal Rumble match - Royal Rumble - ***3/4
Hardy vs Umaga - Raw (Steel Cage) - ***1/2
Michaels vs Kennedy - Raw - ***1/2
Orton vs Hardy - Royal Rumble - ***1/4-***1/2
Edge vs Rey - Royal Rumble - ***1/4

Not all MOTYCs, just the best matches of 08 so far.

Not quite sure of a definite rating, but Angle/Cage tonight was tremendous.

Re: The 2008 MOTYC Thread

You beat me to it Taroostyles. I think this [Angle/Cage at AAO]was the best of the Angle/Cage series despite what people think of the ending (I loved it personally). I personally give that match **** 1/4
