Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

Not a MOTYC, more like TV MOTYC but Strong/Daniels this week was a tremendous TV match, best storytelling and selling in ROH in a long time. I really dig Daniels new moveset and style utilizing mostly throws/chains and submissions where he uses highspots only when it really adds to the match and actually sells his injuries very well (like when he tried to lift Strong but fell due to selling the back breaker that Roddy performed on him), seeing Roderick dominate almost the whole beginning was a great way to show his new side, I have never heard people boo him and chant "you suck", "roderick sucks" that much and the heel/face dynamics were there for the first time since I don't even remember when in ROH on HDNET. Great chemistry overall, I cheered for Daniels to win so I am not pleased by the DQ result, however since it was a win by cheating I don't think Daniels looked weak and it showed Strongs new side very well.

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

I just watched both top contenders for match of the year back to back and here is my verdict....



Tyler Black vs. Davey Richards = PERFECT

VS

Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels = PERFECT

Winner: Undertaker vs. Shawn Michaels & Tyler Black vs. Davey Richards, nothing else comes close.

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

Daisuke Sekimoto vs HARASHIMA - RYOGOKU PETER PAN 2010

Yeah, Daisuke is my pick for WOTY at the moment, his reign has been awesome and this was another great chapter in his "monster" angle in DDT.

****-****1/4

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Don't get me wrong, I am glad you enjoyed this. I am fine with people saying Michaels/Taker is perfect. I give it ****3/4, but still, that's fine by me. It's close enough.

But Davey and Tyler? I still can't see how a match with a run-in and a botched powerbomb can be called perfect. Actually lets shorten this: I can't see how a match with a botch can be called perfect. Are we seriously just pretending this didn't happen?

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

I've yet to see Davey/Black yet, but I know what you mean. Like last year's Michaels/Taker match, people were screaming it was 5 stars, even though there was some botches in it, and I think I had 3 or so matches that I enjoyed more.

As for Michaels/Taker this year, I'm still not sure what to rate it. ****3/4 or the full *****...

However, I can somewhat see an argument for when a match is so damn good, and has so much meaning put into a certain spot that really touches you(the ending with Taker telling Michaels to stay down) that you sometimes get caught up in the moment and just shell out the 5.

I feel the same way with Michaels/Taker from their Hell in a Cell match from '97, and the Mankind/Michaels match from Mind Games.

I definitely agree with this post! They're both 5 stars so I think they're tied for MOTY

I love CM Punk!

My favorite poster of the moment: McQueen

Taker/Michaels is above everything else. It's been MOTY since it happened and nothing is gonna top it.

it's a pro wrestling match though, not synchronised swimming. If you wanna look at it like a judge throwing up a rating based on form and execution, fine, but not everyone watches wrestling like that.

Broken record much? The match and its potential flaws/strengths was discussed to death in the relevant thread including several lengthy posts by yourself (among others) if I remember correctly.

Just leave it be man - everyone has their opinion and are entitled to it.
