Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

I'm guessing when I see ROH again in March we'll have a couple of contenders.

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

I know this is a MOTYC thread, but I will pretend it is a "matches that I think are pretty good" thread, so people who haven't watched any of the newer stuff can have an idea on what might be good...


WWE 1/1/10
Dolph Ziggler vs Kane
I have never wrapped my mind around the thought of a good 7 minute and 20 second time limit match, but after watching the first wrestling show of the new year I realize it can be done. The opening chain wrestling was impressive by Kane, and everything in the match seemed to work. I really liked the sense of desperation and the sense of trying anything to win, Kane going to the top rope, Ziggler trying to put Kane away with the sleeper are just two examples.

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

Why would you make this a 'Matches That Are Pretty Good' Thread? The name is pretty obvious isn't it? Match Of The Year. What is the lowest match you have ever given that award to? ****1/2 would be my low guess, but I assume it is ****3/4 or even ***** if you are a star fairy. If that is the case then why would anyone put non ****1/2 in this thread? The thread name tells you what to do, and in the case above, he even admits he sees the title of the thread and is not following it. If people need an idea of what WWE stuff (that is below ****1/2) they can go to the WWE section, or you can make a 'matches that are good but not MOTYC worthy' thread. How about this year we have a community resolution to keep non ****1/2+ matches out of this thread?

A wrestling match is like a balanced diet. The basics are carbs, keeping you going. Armdrags may not be the highlight, but they're key to the development. Dairy is emotion and crowd interaction, like bones, they strengthen the match, and in there absense, the it will fall apart. Meat is moves like suplexes and finishers. They’re cool, but if you rely on them you’d be unhealthy, and the matches unwatchable. Mat work is fruits and vegetables. We may not like them, but some is sweet chain wrestling. Last is spots and indy MoVEz~!, your sugars and fats. You can't just eat chocolate, and thus you need to do more than flips and head drops to get above ****.

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

Generally speaking people only post ****+ matches in here so people can use it as an aid as to what they should watch and really like. There's no obviously no right and wrong criteria to posting in here though. I am going to make a WWE matches worth checking out thread in General WWE though.

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

Because people last year threw in matches that they also mentioned as being ***, and really people are going to do this year if some format is not changed, why can't we just have a "Suggested Wrestling of 2010" thread?

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

I'm really tempted to post "None." in that thread and then watch as I get called an indyfag.

Why would you do that when you have plenty of people willing to do that here! <3

Re: The 2010 MOTYC Thread

I like to think of this thead not as a MOTYC thread but as a "you should check out this match, even go out of your way if you have to" thread. If someone recommends a *** match from Raw, you bet your fucking ass I'm gonna thank him and then go check it out. How often do you see that sort of match quality on weekly tv?

Don't be so critical. Its just a fucking thread on a fucking forum ON THE FUCKING INTERNET.

I remember when Other Wrestling wasn't so fucking serious business.

Edit: And for those of us who don't care about venturing into the retard factory that is the WWE sections or TNA section, I welcome people to post WWE/TNA stuff in here.

Also, why should a match have to be **** or more to be considered a MOTYC. Ratings are purely relative and if someone thinks a ** star match is a MOTYC, then post it here. Don't mind the asshats who try to be dicks about ratings.

Sorry to vent.
