Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I would certainly push Ziggler harder and higher, but I'd still push McIntyre. He's got size and a look, but now he has experience and has improved well enough to warrant the push he debuted with. I'm afraid he's doomed for the Chris Masters treatment: once he's good enough to match what they wanted originally, they axe you.

Matsers. He was almost better than everyone in the company as well. No joke with the right push I wouldn't be surprised to see him as the best wrestler in the world. Though, it might interesting to see if guys like that can work the longer main events. They're great in TV matches and everything, but who knows.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Masato Tanaka & Ikuto Hidaka vs Naomichi Marufuji & Taiji Ishimori - Zero-1 5/16/2012
I thought this was just going to be a dose of underwhelming Ishimori/Marufuji flippy shit and it was for the first part. However when the Hidaka made the hot tag to Tanaka, the place exploded. This all lead to MaruMori upping it up a notch and go balls to the walls with spots. Well-timed and structured spotfest and Marufuji's best performance since his match with Suigura last November.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Random re-watch:

Bully Ray vs. Austin Aries (TNA, Sacrifice 2012)

Story. Characters. Structure. Mind games. This match had all of those elements in high quantity, combine it with some great and stiff action, and you get a MOTYC, easily. This was perfect for 13 minutes only, and it's a shame their feud ended here, because with 4-5 more minutes, these two could reach five stars, IMO. Both guys played their characters to perfection. This is TNA's MOTY so far, it's slightly better than Angle/Hardy from Victory Road.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Austin Aries vs Bully Ray - TNA Sacrifice
I finally got around to watch this and I thought it was pretty good for the most part. The best part of the match was easily the first few minutes leading up to the big spot where Aries takes a tumble to the outside. Not much happens before that, but great character work from both men. Bully is a great eh... bully character and Aries can pull of the babyface underdog character surprisingly well. The crowd being near-enough dead really stopped Aries comebacks from being anything special. I wasn't too big on the ending however. Aries should of won with the brainbuster. One of the factors of the match was seeing if Aries could lift Bully up for the move and when he finally does, Bully kicks out with ease, only to be put away with the submission.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Prince Devitt vs. Low Ki is a top 10 year end MOTYC. ****1/2-****3/4
Goto/Okada is sensational ****1/4. Nakamura/Anderson is awesome **** and just a little better than MiSu/Takayama vs. Makabe/Nagata of the same rating.

Dontaku is the best non-G1 NJPW show in a long time in my opinion.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Gaijin Puro have it for sale. Just brought it myself. Probs watch tomorrow. I'll try and rip it for everyone else if nobody else does too. Have a hard time believing Ki/Devitt was that good but I'm excited at the prospect of it being that great.
