Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

I don't think i can be bothered to watch another Apollo 55 vs Golden Lovers match again. The matches they had last year where great but exactly the same, is this one different?

This is actually pretty great as far as Junior Indy type matches go. Started off hot and for a lengthy juniors match it was extremely watchable and didn't drag a bit. They didn't do any overly stupid spots that weren't believable. It did feel a bit coreographed but it more positives than negatives. When I saw this rating I was even more sceptical about watching it strangely enough cause I saw it as being a Marufuji/Kanemaru scenario when it gets some majkor pimping but I end up loathing it. Edwards/Suzuki main eventing a Korakuen Hall show is brilliant for them but it doesn't say much for NOAH when they cant fork out a better main event for such a big show. Both guys made the most of the oppurtunity though and they looked like superstars. The chop exchanges were great and Suzuki sold them brilliantly well. Both men really sold the match as a battle and not just a match. The rolling pen sequence was one of the best versions of that spot that I've seen anyone do in a long time too. Enjoyed the lack of big spots at the end too. High end **** and about as good a NOAH juniors match I can see them having for a long time.

They only had 2 matches with each other last year and one was in DDT which should be ignored really. They tried a lot of new spots that they didn't do in the first match, some worked and some didn't. It's not as great as the first title switch but it's still very strong and worth watching.

Suzuki/Edwards ***1/2

Very good, but not MOTYC material.

Re: The 2011 MOTYC Thread

GHC Jr. Heavyweight Championship: Kotaro Suzuki (c) vs. Eddie Edwards ****1/4 - ****1/2 (Until I settle on a final rating, I guess I'll go with the somewhat convoluted ****2/5).

Head and shoulders above every other match this year imo. A star making performance from Edwards (in my eyes at least). I loved pretty much everything about this -- from the perfectly executed + paced high spots, innovative counters and crowd heat, this will be tough to beat.

Can't say enough good things about this one. Surprised the hell out of me when I thought I would enjoy
Hidaka/Sekimoto and KENTA/Takayama a lot more (both of which I rated ***3/4).

Now onto Golden Lovers/Apollo 55 and I will be caught up this year.

2011 Match of the Year Standings:
1. Ring of Honor Championship: Eddie Edwards (c) vs. Davey Richards (Best in the World iPPV, June 26th, *****)
2. Non-Title: Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin (c) vs. Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards (Honor Takes Center Stage Part 2 iPPV, April 2nd, ****1/2)
3. All Asia Tag Team Championships: Seiya Sanada & Manabu Soya (c) vs. Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi (AJPW, March 21st, ****1/2)
4. Pure Rules: Davey Richards vs. Christopher Daniels (Manhattan Mayhem IV, March 19th, ****1/2)
5. GHC Jr. Heavyweight Championship: Kotaro Suzuki (c) vs. Eddie Edwards (NOAH "The First Navigation", January 29th, ****2/5)
