Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Certainly no MOTYCs last night. The PPV was generally fun, passable stuff, nothing worth paying for except the Rumble itself.

Confused by people who were disappointed in Punk/Ziggler. That match was plainly built around the GM messing with Punk. Ziggler got a little more embarrassed than I expected, but it was pretty much exactly what the build should have led you to believe.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I had a blast watching the rumble to be honest. Didn't go in expecting any MOTYC to be honest . The cage match was fun and Bryan was great again. Kane and Cena was decent considering I hate Kane matches. Ziggler/Punk was everything I expected, some great wrestling with Laurinaitis antics combined. The Rumble match it's self was great. I'm not a massive fan of Kofi but marked the fuck out at walking at his hands. Ricardo , Foley and Santino was pure gold too. Some nice suprises , good wrestling and overall a really fun and easy show to watch.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Bryan and Punk just had a fucking great match on Raw. Man, that was so awesome to see those two given time to put on that match. Thankyou WWE. It had a screwy finish but I marked big time for it. Jericho/Punk is going to be so good if that's the way they are going for mania and it looks like it is.

The match was an easy **** by the way.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Punk/Danielson that just happened 10 minutes ago was amazing. What I loved so much about it was that the crowd wasn't into the match at all when the match started. Now I know this usually isn't something that you would call a good thing but the way the crowd went from dead to getting really into the match was so impressive. It kind of sucked how there a commercial break but judging how the crowd was acting I think we missed a control segment from Bryan that got him a ton of heat because when the show came back I heard a "CM Punk" right away and saw Bryan working over the arm.

Punk did a great job selling the arm. When he hit the knee to the face in the corner and set up for the bulldog but had to stop and switch arms I was so happy. Punk did really well as the face here and he made Bryan look amazing, something that the big guys on SD haven't been able to do so well since Bryan got the title. In fact I would say both guys came out looking stronger.

I didn't like the ending all that much but at least Bryan kept in character and celebrated like he really won something. I can only hope that some day they will get the chance to steal the show on a PPV.

Punk/Bryan - ****. No lie, it was awesome. Ziggler/Orton also deserves a shoutout

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah, great TV match. The only thing missing for me was DAT BOY D-Bryan doing some trash talk and responding to Punk's "Best in The World" comments (although I guess that could have been an issue considering the Jericho/Punk feud that's gonna take place in the coming months).

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah Ziggler/Orton was really good too.

What Taylor said about the Punk/Bryan match is spot on. I was just marking out the whole time for Bryan doing stuff he hasn't done since his ROH days like the way he worked over Punk's arm with that evil grin on his face. Punk sold amazingly especially on the bulldog spot. These guys almost wrestled an old ROH style of match and I'm pretty sure they let them go out there and completely call their own match. I don't even think it's a case of overrating it because they were both 'roh guys', the match really was awesome.

He did trash talk and respond to Punk's "best in the world" comments. Rewatch the segment where Bryan is working over Punk's arm, I believe it's right after they came back from commercial break. Bryan looks up and laughs to himself as he mutters, "Best in the world? Best in the world?" It's subtle but it's there.

The match was full of subtlety and amazing selling. Both looked crisp and no noticeable slip-ups. I too dug the "ROH-style" match they worked and I wasn't fazed by the ending since it not only set up a potential WrestleMania match between Jericho and Punk, it not only kept both competitors looking strong, but it kept to Bryan's heel character. Smart finish, in my opinion. Easy ****.
