Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Why not? so far, as i see it:

*Feud of the year - yes
*Match of the year - yes
*A lot of great matches (Steen, Lethal, Roderick and Eddie, Briscoes and more) - yes

So why not?

It's only been 6 months and I haven't seen a wrestler in North America besides maybe Daniel Bryan that has more top notch than Davey Richards so far. 3-4 years from now when people do a retrospective they going to realize how awesome of a run he is on now.

CM Punk is the US wrestler of the year imo. Great ppv matches with Jericho, a very good match with Ziggler on ppv, Bryan on ppv, two great tv matches with Henry, great tv match with Ziggler and two with Bryan, and a very good one with Kane. His performances in all of those were just great.

And considering no one cares that much about it now, I highly doubt people will look back on 2012 and think 'oh yeah, Richards was amazing that year'. He hasn't been amazing at all. The Elgin and Steen matches are the only good matches and I do think he was great in those, and possibly the Lethal tv match earlier in the year which was quite good but that's it. Most of his matches have been ridiculous and almost unwatchable to a lot of people.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

But Punk's feuds are really bad. Yeah, not his fault, but you need to count it. And idk, i really enjoyed Hart Smith/Richards, Richards/Steen, Ricards/Edwards 4, all of his tag team matches were really good and many more other matches.... And he did some good things in NJPW with Rocky.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

True about Punk's feuds, but he delivers every time he goes to the ring even in tv matches, even with Kane and he's awful lol. Punk really knows how to tell a story in the ring through his expressions and selling, and imo he's doing it better than anyone in the US right now and he does it almost every time he's on tv and every time he's on ppv.

Seconded. MOTYC thread needs more lucha libre. I love the AAA product.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I'm going to hope this is a recent match as if it's the same fourway with Evans and Juvi from March I'm going to be really disappointed in you.

I think March was Rey de Reyes. This one was for the cruiserweight strap. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgTUUv-ZwXE&feature=plcp

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

it was taped on may 19th. It falls more on the WCW cruiserweight style than lucha. Jack and Juvi had nice exchanges.
