Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

I've only seen Edwards/Strong live so I really can't judge it fairly as all I really remember was going crazy when Edwards won. I also loved the fact that I was totally fooled into thinking Strong would retain twice so I give it a lot of credit for that. I would imagine you wouldn't get that feeling unless you were in the building as everyone knew Edwards won before they watched the match.

And the botch is what I remember the most about Davey/Daniels. I mean I remember enjoying the match and some of the cool spots they did on the ropes but the only thing I really have a vivid memory of is Davey killing himself on the top rope.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

When I think of Davey/Daniels I honestly don't think of the botch at all. When I was reading Nervosa's review I didn't even think about it until I read it, and then I just thought 'Oh yeah...that happened didn't it'.

Thinking about it now, it really was a strange botch. How the hell did Davey misjudge the jump that much (to the extent of landing on the ropes) after years of doing the move perfectly.

It was very strange but to be fair.....have you ever seen Paul London's first attempt of that move? He did the exact same thing.

My guess is that they focus so much on getting in the air high enough that they forget to spring forward as well. If you have ever seen Davey's version, he almost always goes up a lot more than forward, which lends to risking that very kind of thing.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

Slammiversary 2011

AJ/Bully Ray was great

Also recommend giving the following a watch from the same show.

Shelly and Storm vs. British Invasion
Crimson vs. Samoa Joe
Angle vs. Jarrett


You know you remember this.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

TNA - Slammiversary IX

Last Man Standing
AJ Styles vs. Bully Ray - ****1/2

Jesus christ this was fantastic. Extremely physical from bell to bell. AJ brought out that ridiculously intense side he has where no one can stop him and it meshed together so well with Ray's constant stiffness. I really liked that it didn't rely too heavily on weapons like you see way too much of in these type of matches. I felt like an 8 year old kid watching AJ soar through the air towards the end and I have no problem saying that. I don't wanna spoil anything else, this was just really damn great. Good work TNA.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

Sounds like a match that's on par with PPV main events of late 2009 and the 2005-06 series involving Joe, AJ, and Daniels.

I cant believe I have been talked into watching a match with one of the dudleys in it. This better be damn good.
