2. Negro Casas vs Blue Panther CMLL Hair vs Hair
3. Kevin Steen vs Davey Richards - ROH Border Wars
4. Austin Aries vs Bobby Roode - TNA Destination X
5. Shingo Takagi vs Katsuhiko Nakajima - D-Ring
6. Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus - WWE Extreme Rules 2/3 Falls
7. Prince Devitt vs Low-Ki - NJPW Dontaku
8. Kenny Omega vs Hiroshi Yamato - AJPW 01-03
9. Chris Jericho vs CM Punk - WWE WMXXVIII
10. Sara Del Rey vs El Generico - Chikara Hot Off The Griddle

I kinda understand the feeling though I didn't know going in and decided half way through that Aries had no chance then skipped to the end and was shocked lol.

AJ Styles vs Christopher Daniels - Last Man Standing - TNA Destination X 2012
Great little match. Thought Daniels was particularly super in this. Dug the stalling at the start and he rocked his control segment even if it was brief. Looked in total control and showed off about it. Dislikeable but awesome. Liked AJ's selling. Thought Daniels threw some great punches ringside. Steps bump looked brilliant. Thought everything once they got up to the stage was great. I normally hate fighting on the stage because it feels phony and there just because. Didn't here. They built the tension so well on the stage. Kaz's run in was great, bump could have been a bit better though. Great near fall. Finish rocked. First big spot which I dug because it needed to be more of a fight than a match with wrestling spots and it was. Really strong stuff.

****

Thought Aries/Roode was good but not great or anything. AJ/Roode was a lot better. Roode's control segment really took me out of it. Same thing happened at Lockdown. He doesn't look assertive enough controlling a big match like this. Finish made it. Felt big and important. That was a crowd who actually cared about the product unlike what people try and convince themselves the ROH fans are. Doubt I'll remember anything from the match come the end of the year bar the result.

I'm gonna be so letdown in all of you if AJ vs Daniels doesn't set my world on fire. The thought of watching them wrestle for the 100th time sounds dreadful.

It's not a "set your world on fire" match but it's short and to the point enough that I don't see any reason for anyone at least not to like it.

It's really entertaining match. Daniels is amazing with a great heel performance in it which really elevates it above a lot of their more recent singles matches. Cool spots too, simple but effective.

I think me and Capone are the only ones to have rated Aries/Roode as high as we did. I loved everything about it. Who knows, on a re-watch I could lower my rating but for now it's my second favorite match this year.

NJPW/AJPW 7/1/12

Shinsuke Nakamura & Kazuchika Okada vs Suwama & Shuji Kondo
Okada/Nakamura SWAG . Suwama . Oh yeah and Kondo is there as well. We get Suwama and Nakamura trading holds, Suwama takes a cheapshot at Okada, Okada tags in and he is OVER! Good stuff. Suwama and Kondo playing the dominating team was great with a really good control segment, and when Nakamura eventually got the tag in he was even more over than Okada! Basically just breaks down in to the finishing stretch which was loads of fun. Any combination of these guys in singles matches would be awesome. I thought the Okada/Suwama exchanges were great, but then along comes the Nakamura/Suwama exchanges and they were even better! Suwama was a beast in this. The right guy went over the right guy too which was a bonus. This was further comfirmation that Okada is indeed legit. Really fun stuff, just what I wanted from a match with three of my favorite guys in Japan right now. ****

Haven't seen the main event yet but Sekibayoshi/SMOP and Akiyama/Kea are both good matches from the show too, around the ***3/4 mark.

I think that's why you might be pleasantly surprised; those 99 other matches have predominantly been 'wrestling' matches. They both bring the hate in this one and it provides for a very fresh encounter from the two of them. I don't need another rematch, but it's cool to see them do something a bit different.
