Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I love pure wrestling sitpulaion matches like Submission, Iron Man, 2/3 falls. More of them should used, especially with talent like this.

I also think they'd have a great cage match.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

CZW live in Miami
Lightube bundles, Danny Havoc vs Lucky 13
****

This match was superb and centerd around the wrestling. Lucky did some really nice american lucha spots (hand springs, Genericos jump to the top rope diving moonsault, moonsault double knees, and a rana off the top rope to the outside) Havoc can go in the ring pretty decently. The lightubes were just add ons to most of the moves that they were doing so that it wasnt just them hitting one another.

Kevin Steen & Sami Callihan on commentary make it that much better.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

its a bonus match on the CZW TOD XI dvd. Also features DJ Hyde vs Drake Younger from the same show. Not as good as Lukcy vs Havoc but still good and end stretch was fucking great.

These 2 also had a very good match at Deja Vu 5, it wasn't just bumps and blood, they actually did nice wrestling moves which I thought was a good change.

Ive read really good things about that match but have never seen it. I know Lucky got a pretty nasty cut and one of them took a bump into a truck bed flled with tubes I belive.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah I think Lucky got a pretty big cut right under his armpit, and there was indeed a big final spot involving a small truck filled with lighttubes.

Punk/Bryan (MITB) was solid, nothing more. The booking anally raped this match. **1/2

This match was great, but lacked some drama and excitement to enter the **** territory, IMO. Great old school grappling, and the post match shit was touching. ***3/4

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I can agree it was hardly spell binding, and the crowd really weren't that terrific bar rallying behind Tajiri when he got close to a comeback. Still I wouldn't say it lacked drama, they established a wonderful sense of tension during the grappling and lock up exchanges, and you could tell the match could break down into a physical affair at any moment and I was constantly gripped watching each exchange just waiting for that moment of physicality and Tajiri's strike flurry after 6 minutes of tight grappling was just a wonderful build that you don't see anywhere else in Japan these days: if this was any other promotion you would have already had some pedestrian hold trading with little purpose, or some god awful 'I stand here and let you chop me, then you stand there and let me chop you back' spot that I absolutely HATE.

I can see why people wanted it to kick into a higher gear, and maybe my love for it is only escalated by how crap a lot of other title matches are in Japan, but the slow build, the selling of Tajiri's signature offence and its importance in him potentially winning the match as well as the little things Finlay added to the match (struggle in executing a drop toe hold takedown, and rubbing his thigh when he had Tajiri in a submission moments after Tajri had unleashed a string of kicks to his leg) just impressed me so much I couldn't fault it.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Kevin Steen vs Brian Cage-Taylor - PWG Death To All But Metal
Super little match. Steen was really fantastic in this I thought. First half is really fun with the crowd banter and Steen doing comedy spots with BCT's physique. Second half it steps up and turns into a really good little inexperienced underdog challenger title match. Taylor kinda just comes along for the ride at times but his spots are great and that's enough to get him over with the structure of the match along with Steen's performance. Made him look super while maintaining the established hierarchy. Finish is perfect. Really good little match mixed in with all the usual PWG enjoyment. Probably get well looked over kinda like NVC/RockNES last year.

****1/4

Super Smash Brothers vs Young Bucks - No DQ - PWG Death To All But Metal
As strong of a contender for MOTY as Naito/Okada and Ibushi/Hino are. Crowd brawling off the off was fucking super. Felt totally chaotic and hate driven. No care for making the spots look neat and tidy, just a really great uncoordinated but not sloppy brawl which set the tone of the match just perfectly. Workover was awesome. Chair spot which eliminates Supafly from the match was incredible. Bucks cut out the goofyness which helps the match a lot. Super workover, great dickness from Bucks and great at keeping Supafly out to maintain the 2 on 1 advantage. Could have done without the tombstone on the apron not being sold. Table spot was immense. Can live with Matt coming back from it because it was do or die at that point and it was near enough to the finish. Near fall that leads to Knox being taken out was incredible. Awesome superkick on Knox too. Sets up the actual finish wonderfully well too. Knox clothesline on Bucks is always a super spot. Maybe a bit goofy but it fits in PWG and more importantly this particular match. Tremendously well paced. Couple of selling issues but at least they were to deliver more greatness and they weren't that off putting. Put SSB over really well too. Steen's legit tremendous on commentary and not just in a goofy way either.

****1/2

El Generico vs Ricochet - PWG Death To All But Metal
Generico and Ricochet both turn up and don't have a bad day. Even the terrible posters on here can figure out how this goes. It's not a coincide either how Ricochet's turned into a great worker since going to Dragon Gate.

****1/4
