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.
