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 ****.
