Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Destination X

Joe/Angle - ***
AJ/Daniels - ***3/4
Aries/Roode - ****

Legit mad that I had the finish to Aries/Roode spoiled to me this morning by a friend (knocked half a snowflake off due to it) b/c it was a really, really good match and some of the nearfalls would've been hella believable if I didn't already know how it was gonna go down. Aries is continuing to have a pretty great year ring wise.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I might actually watch Destination X. Some matches are very intriguing , the main event in perticular. I haven't watched a full TNA even since God knows when. It had Johnny Devine as X champ so that put me off. My God I randomly hate him.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah, I'd give Aries/Roode **** or so. Really surprised Roode didn't kick out at the end, and I'm actually happy he didn't. Gives Aries' brainbuster a lot more credibility as a finish.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Really enjoyed Destination X, such a watchable show from start to finish. Styles/Daniels was my MOTN actually at ****, great intensity with spots that built up perfectly to the epic finish. Again, I had the Roode/Aries finish spoilt for me which may have affected things, I went ***3/4.

Spoiler for Ultimate X:
As a side note, LOL at Sonjay Dutt being a total retard in the Ultimate X match. His opponent was CLEARLY right by the ropes, why on EARTH would you attempt a standing shooting star press? So typical of the kind of 'get-your-shit-in' wrestler that he is, and it bit him in the ass as he got injured. Obviously, I'd never wish injury on anyone so that sucks for him, but still...what an idiot.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

CZW Tournament of Death XI

Danny Havoc vs Drake Younger - **** 1/2

If you're a ROH-bot, you won't like this match. That being said, it's an insanely fun match and the two of them go balls to the wall.

That must be some universe you live in where any of these 3 matches, particularly Daniels/Styles and Aries/Roode, were weaker than Bravados/Bucks from Unity.

I didn't liked Aries vs. Roode as you mainly because i didn't thought that Aries gonna win this so the drama here and the pinfalls didn't worked on me. The match by itself was a great wrestling match and i was shocked (and happy, of course) with Aries winning the title. But i will rewatch soon and maybe my opinion will change..

Wait there , if I'm reading your post right you're saying the drama and the pinfalls didn't work because you didn't think Aries would win. I could understand this if you were full sure Aries was gonna win. I knew some didn't rate it as high because the finish was spoiled , which was understandable.

EDIT- Also which match was it between Zack Sabre Jr and Marty Scurll that was being pimped as a MOTYC? Was it the one from Progress wrestling? Haven't heard much pimping it on this board.
