Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

yeah I picked it up from Seabs as well.

I've been doing a lot of writing about wrestling lately and not once have I actually written anything while the match is going on. If I see something I love I'll make a mental note to talk about it, but then unless I really want to do a proper review and dissect the story and such, I'll just braindump all the things I like and don't like about the match. If I feel like the match deserves a totally analytical review I'll put it on again and go chronologically and talk about what I like and don't like.

Like, here's my Cena/Khali Judgment Day 07 review:


Cena/Khali was pretty cool. Thought Cena's bumping got a bit ridiculous at points (oh come on, no matter how big a dude is he is not going to beat you with a powerslam where he doesn't even lay out) but his offense was all fantastic and he played the underdog role perfectly. Khali looked like a monster here even though he tapped out, and it's all thanks to Cena. About as good a story as you're going to find in a sub-10 minute world title match (think this goes about 8:50). Only thing really holding it back for me is just how shitty a lot of the moves looked (Cena very obviously pulls all his punches in the early going and Khali forgets to sell them, plus general Khali sloppiness).


...and here's my HHH/Jericho Fully Loaded 2000 review:


Aw yeah, this ruled my fucking face off. Jericho is on fire in the beginning and beats up the evil bad guy. Triple H looks desperate, like he wasn't expecting this, and Stephanie does a great job on the outside being all "oh no, Hunter might actually lose." Then Hunter takes control and targets Jericho's injured ribs, and it's pretty cool. Rips off the tape, drops elbows on his back, it's all pretty nice. Stephanie is great again here, looking totally gleeful when she gets to slap Jericho.

Eventually Hunter tries to get the 10 count, but Jericho gets up, so Hunter goes to a sleeper with bodyscissors, which is a really really nice touch because it actually looks like he's putting pressure on the ribs which he's been working over all match. Jericho just barely beats the count and gives this fucking awesome "come on, motherfucker" gesture while staggering around and Hunter punches him in the face and Jericho goes down, but then pulls himself to his feet using the ropes and tells Hunter to hit him again. Hunter does and Jericho gets up again and gives the Game a crotch chop, falling over as he does it. Fucking brilliant spot there. Then Hunter hits a Pedigree for about as great a false finish as you're going to get in a LMS match.

While Triple H is lying down on the top rope in the corner, Jericho struggles to his feet, and Hunter, all pissed off, goes and gets a chair, and hits Jericho in the ribs and then the back with it. He sets up for a Pedigree on the chair but the ref doesn't want him to, so he shoves him out of the way, but this lets Jericho give him a low blow and take control. Perfectly timed, the crowd pops huge for the low blow. From here on out it's a really great finishing stretch. Probably my favorite spot is when Jericho has Hunter in the Walls and Hunter gets to the ropes but because this is a LMS match Jericho doesn't break. Wish more matches did that. Finish which I'm not going to spoil is also fucking fantastic. Puts over the fucking war that this was and makes both guys look awesome.



Both are basically just lists of things I like and don't like, but one is longer, more organized, and took a bit more time whereas the other I basically wrote in five minutes after watching the match. The deciding factor as to whether I'll go all out is a mix of how much I like it, whether I'm starting a discussion or contributing to one (first review was contributing, second was starting), and whether or not I disagree with what appears to be the majority opinion. I'll go a whole lot more in-depth talking about why Briscoes/WGTT FB sucks if people generally think it's good (or even acceptable) than if they all think it's terrible.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I'm a trendsetter

Actually I got it from Andy3K years ago.

Watched Aries/Ray yesterday. Match is real good but it's not enough of a match to be a MOTYC imo. Felt like it needed more depth in the middle but they got everything spot on and the finish was great. Give Ray a longer more dominant control segment in the middle and I'd consider it a MOTYC.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Just watched Seth Rollins vs. Kassius Ohno from FCW last month and I really enjoyed it. Definitely not the best match the two have had with each other but I'd say about ***3/4. Worth a watch.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Someone else that wishes for Drew to be pushed? :O

Maybe there's hope that my A-Ry obsession will be shared, too...

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Ah, Riley is good, but still green. But i enjoyed his feud with Miz last year.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

No Drew McIntyre shouldn't get pushed imo, I know this isn't the WWE section so I'll keep it short, but in my opinion Drew has nothing to offer that other people can't also offer. Drew is good in the ring and he has good length but that's all there is to him.
His accent is so bad that personally I can't understand what he's trying to say half the time he speaks, he doesn't have alot of charisma or presence and so his in ring work is his only saving grace.

However you have guys like Dolph Ziggler walking around who is also very good in the ring but atleast has some charisma and presence (not enough to warrant a main event push but I seem to be one of few who sees him as a midcarder). So I really don't see why Drew should be pushed, if WWE should push someone based on ring work alone it should be Tyson Kidd.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Akira Tozawa vs. El Ligero - PCW Guild Wars 2/6/12: I'm a cynical middle-aged man whose disbelief has grown too bloated & sluggish to be suspended on a regular basis, but by the end of tonight Akira Tozawa had me marking out like the stoopid kid I used to be. He also won over an initially indifferent audience with a beast of a performance in which he dominated Ligero with the most exciting & explosive offence I've seen live. Ligero's short-lived comebacks punctuated the match perfectly & a competitive home stretch with several dramatic near-falls from jaw-on-the-floor exchanges had the place going nuts. Not sure how it'll hold up on dvd, but live it was easily ****1/4

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

When McIntyre gets the opprotunities to become so, he's one of the best wrestlers in the company. I'd say the world if I bothered to watch anything else. I won't hide the fact I think he smokes Ziggler and Tyson; I find both of them overrated.

Riley is as bad as anyone in the WWE, though. That guy is fucking AWFUL. Who's worse? Khali? That Other Indian Guy?

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

McIntyre might make a top five workers in WWE list if I made one. Behind Danielson, Ziggler, Henry, maybe Punk, and I don't know who else. He's super. His elimination chamber performance in the one he was in was one of my favorite things in WWE the year that it happened.
