So amazing. Right now, I'm thinking it is my favorite in the trilogy. BANE steals the show.

Bane proved himself as the spunky newcomer, but that work rate by Batman. The man knows his psychology and how to sell.

To much no selling on Bane's part but his promo work was great. This was what Cena/Lesnar should of been.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I think it was necessary for the no selling to really make the audience see how badass and tough Bane is. Then the stakes are even higher for the rematch.

Yeah it needed to build up to Batman having a chance the 2nd time. If he beats Bane down the 1st time, then theres no point in the rest of the movie.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah, Bane looked like such a badass with all the no selling and Batman bumped like crazy. Really reminded me of the old Benoit/Sullivan matches in a sense.

The rematch on the other hand, epic. Bane's selling gets a little weak near the end but you can just feel the anger and emotion coming from that guy. Would've been nice with a clean finish but I can give it a good ****1/2.

Tom Hardy could no-sell a rocket launcher being shot at his face and still be fucking awesome.

An epic encounter, no doubt, but I feel the Aurora Premiere Night Deathmatch will go under many of your radars. James Holmes absolutely killed it.

Yuji Nagata vs Suwama AJPW CC 5/5/12
Awesome match right here! Great story and just a war right from the start basically. I loved how they were so evenly matched and neither of them could get the advantage in the first few minutes when they were trading holds and Suwama was going for the belly to belly which was a recurring theme throughout the match, but Nagata just wouldn't let it happen. It just breaks down into a slug fest once Nagata has Suwama in the ropes and slaps him. Nagata eventually works the neck and it's a really good work over, with greatt selling from Suwama. I loved how Suwama saw an opnening and wet for the ankle lock out of desperation to try and make Nagata tap. It was also a great transition in finally weakening Nagata enough so Suwama could start hitting some of his bigger moves. Loved the finishing stretch, but I could have done without the suplex exchange just before, but it came off better than it usually does because of the pauses in between them, it wasn't just one straight after the other in quick succession so it came off as desperation more than anything, but I still would have preferred it to be left out. The last 5 minutes are awesome with Nagata's offense constantly going after the neck with backdrops and brainbusters and what not, Suwama just throws everything he can at Nagata and his facial expressions of desperation and exhaustion are top notch all the way through. I also loved the way Suwama would get back in the match because Nagata would get too cocky for his own good on occasions. The finish was really well done. Suwama is probably my favourite guy to watch in Japan right now, and I really think he's a serious BITW contender this year. Can't believe I waited this long to watch this match. ****1/4

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah that's in my top 5 right now. Incredible match, even better being able to watch it live. Agreed on Suwama being a legit contender for WOTY too. Probably put Allmark #1 just based on 2012 work but he's right up there with him, Punk and Bryan for 2012.

This is wrong on so many levels.

This is true, but the key difference is that PWG is like The Dude (Lebowski) of pro wrestling - they don't give a fuck, they just wanna wrestle (bowling) from time to time (like, 10-12 shows per year), they book big Indy names in strong supercards, they have few strong homegrown names, and their matches may seem like spotfests often, but they have a strong in-ring storytelling (you can't say that for Davey's reign, or for Steen/Davey from BITW), with a ton of hot crowd support.

The key of PWG's cool aura is the fact they're a light-heart booking company, you gotta wait like 30-50 days to watch their show, so the anticipation is always high, and they don't need to handle a pressure of day-to-day operations like ROH.

Long story short, PWG is batshit cool (ROH is not anymore), and that's all that matters to me as a fan, but I will always be a ROH fan as well.
