Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Any other matches from BOSJ worth watching? How were PAC's matches? He wrestled Liger if I'm not mistaken. I didn't have a clue Kendrick was in the tournament , random enough. The whole weekend is up on YT so I might watch it one of the days , probably when the Euros are over.

PAC/Liger was really sloppy unfortunately. Cool to see PAC in a ring with Liger though. Ki/Taniguchi was really enjoyable, just a really slick match. Ki looked to be having a ton of fun.

Only the 1st day is online. The PAC/Devitt show aired today and the Finals are tomorrow. Probably pick them up for GP and watch them on my day off. The Dontaku show wasn't a BOSJ show btw.

Devitt/KUSHIDA is the only match from Day 1 worth going out to see. PAC/Liger wasn't very good but it wasn't meant to be a great match. Just a way to introduce PAC to the New Japan crowd, same with the BUSHI and Del Oro matches.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Bobby Roode vs AJ Styles - TNA World Championship - TNA iMPACT 24.05.2012
TNA MOTY so far for me just ahead of Aries/Shelley. Could have easily been MOTY if it got another 10 minutes I thought. Doesn't go by your traditional babyface shine > heel control segment > finish formula but in this case I liked it more with what they did. AJ gets plenty during the match but everytime he starts building momentum Roode cuts him off. Made both guys look super. AJ looked worthy of being the champ by not being dominated all match but Roode also looked worthy of being the champ by hanging in there for the duration, working on top of AJ at times and always being able to halt AJ when he got momentum. Some fucking great cut off spots too, particularly the steps bump and the spear. Finish was great, basically perfect for a TV Title match. Liked it even more because AJ lost his attention earlier in the match too which made the finish more plausible. I felt a bit deflated at the end but only because the video said it had 10 minutes left and I thought there was 10 minutes of the match left. Roode's celebration on his own after was glorious too, as was his reaction when Sting turned up. Super match, super booking, super angle. Super.

****+

Ryusuke Taguchi vs TAKA Michinoku - NJPW 06.06.2012
This was tons of fun and ended being really good by the end of it once when they kicked into the higher gear. TAKA's shtick is really entertaining and Taguchi rolls with it nicely. Quality is really good then once they lay down on the fun shtick and the final few minutes are really super followed by a great finish. Isn't a MOTYC but it's something everyone will enjoy and most should really like.

Low Ki vs Brian Kendrick - NJPW 06.06.2012
And for the first time in years an entertaining Ki and Kendrick turn up and they both turn up on the same night when they're facing each other. Yay! Kendrick's act is really fun here. Running scared of everything that Ki aims at him. Spot where Ki's on the top rope and Kendrick scurries into the crowd hiding behind a fan and smirks like an idiot at how clever a pussy he is. They play nicely off their history with each other too with Kendrick being aware of Ki's big moves and treating them like death trying to avoid them. Finish is super too. Best match from either guy in years.

****

Prince Devitt vs PAC - NJPW 06.06.2012
You know when you're expectations for a match get so high it's impossible for them to deliver. That was a big fear of mine with this but it absolutely delivered. Awesome match. Best Juniors match so far this year and I suspect it'll stay that way too. Like Ki/Kendrick they do a bunch of counter spots because they know each other so well but they're much better here. Spot where they're fighting for the first dive was fucking superb. Really well structured peaking at the end with a superb last few minutes. This is about as good as Juniors matches get these days.

****1/4+

TNA Slammiversary 2012
Kaz and Christopher Daniels vs. Kurt Angle and AJ Styles

Samoa Joe vs. Austin Aries

And purely storytelling wise: Bully Ray vs. Joseph Park


You know you remember this.
