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!
WWE should do an angle where Nick Hogan hits Stone Cold with a car
so they can set up the Hogan/Austin dream match that will never happen
