Two ref bumps almost killed Lesnar/Cena for me. It's still a damn good match, but I wouldn't consider it MOTYC just because something like that was unseen in WWE. Lesnar/Cena is all about people getting caught in the moment, if you ask me. ***3/4 for that match.

I belive that me, Sean Radican and Cactus are the only guys who love Finlay/Callihan III to death, in fact, we all rated it the same (****1/2). I simply love the style they wretle, where every fucking move mattered, with some bajesus stiff strikes and painful submissions.

And Okada/Naito is a beautiful match. ***** all the way, it's a clear Puro MOTY so far, and No. 2 in the world, right behind Bucks/SSB from Death To All But Metal.

Oh I don't doubt I'll really adore Callihan/Finlay, but I do have to question if it could grip me as much as the top matches I've seen this year. You seen Tajiri/Finlay from SMASH Joe? Superbly worked title match built around Finlay selling Tajiri's kicks as well as anyone I've seen and trying to create distance between them and ground him. Tajiri's really good as the hometown babyface trying to win the title in the company's final show, and his comeback is superb with the continuous teases that his strikes have Finlay's number, and the question that slowly dominates the match is whether Tajiri's kicks can win him the match before Finlay finds a counter.

Lesnar/Cena for me is all about Cena's babyface performance and Lesnar's incredible beating. I don't doubt the initial live viewing can explain why it stuck with me, given it was unlike anything WWE has ever put out in a grudge feud, and honestly came off like a BattlARTS/Hashimoto vs Tenryu hybrid of real violence. I loved all the teases to Cena's comeback, thought he bumped and sold his ass off and teased his big spots and timed them to perfection (Deadweight slam out of the Kimura is one of the best spots I've seen this year) and thought Lesnar complimented him superbly as the fearsome monster who took some scary bumps and also had some killer facial expressions, particularly after the Backlund deadweight spot and the Steel Chain shot which had Lesnar conveying this brilliant shocked emotion at being momentarily stunned and having little to answer on how Cena hadn't been killed yet.

Okada/Naito was a good match, though it just didn't scream MOTYC to me. As I said that's more to do with the Puro Main Event title formula just not really doing much for me these days, though this was a far better title match formula to me than anything I've seen for a good few years in Puro. I'm just far more conditioned to loving FUTEN and the occasional Takayama slugfest these days, than an admittedly good title match. Okada definitely comes across as someone I'll keep my eye on, but as I said, he's more one of the better guys of a style that right now doesn't grab me, than someone I'm compelled to check out the minute I hear another match of his has made air (e.g Ishikawa).

Watched the ladder match from pwg. really fun match and pretty good. it was insanity but with insanity comes bad camera work which really showed when steen and whoever commentated with him talked about action that wasn't happening on camera. loved the ending. haven't seen much of any of the 6 guys involved but the bucks and player uno are def. people i want to watch again. don't care to rate it but def. recommended.

The ref bump in Cena/Lesnar is probably the most realistic ref bump I've ever seen.

Really am still undecided on how to rate Lesnar/Cena until I watch it again. Fucking loved it though. I know people will say something like 'if you loved it then rate it *****', but that match is different imo, and I haven't added it on to my MOTYC list despite loving it.

Vordell Walker vs 2 Cold Scorpio, (PWE 1/28/12)

Very good match, though this would probably be a top 15-20 match rather than an outright MOTYC. Matwork to begin wasn't Navarro/Solar esque but served its purpose and accentuated nicely to Walker losing his cool and attacking Scorpio when he finally came on top in an exchange. Scorpio countering a headstand by Walker into some Haas of Pain esque hold was incredibly nifty though. Scorpio sells well and eats a decent beating thereafter, but its really everything after Scorpio's wonderful punch combo comeback where the match really shifts into another gear. Everything Scorpio does has this Tenryu esque execution which looks deadly, especially this pele/enziguri kick which Walker sells like it crippled his upper body. Thought both men's strikes were appropriately stiff as the match progressed and things broke down a little, Walker's dazed/feeble crawl selling of Scorpio's strikes was especially unique and impressive. Couple of strong nearfalls which I bought as the finish, though if I could complain it would be that Scorpio's offence looked really excellent in comparison to Walker's and I think Walker could have done with some more nearfalls insteaf of what came off as a mini upset by the end.


Dean Allmark & Finlay vs Robbie Dynamite & Rampage Brown, (ASW 6/7/12)

Maybe one of the most purely fun matches of the year, but also a damn good match to boot and another feather in Finlay's cap of strong matches since his Indy return. Pure STF match with a really fun opening with Allmark and Finlay looking unbeatable and some fun comedy spots from the heels, particularly with the crowd getting on their backs and taunting their every bump. Transition spot was really super with Allmark getting caught in the moment and taking a nasty gut-buster out of a vertical suplex. Next few minutes are pure FIP with Allmark getting double teamed behind the ref's back and Finlay being taunted with the heels dragging Allmark close to the corner and baiting the hot tag. Finlay's a super apron worker throughout and emulates Steamboat by almost falling into the ring he's leaning out for the tag that much. Awesome sleeper spot where Allmark threatens to make the tag only to be caught in a sleeper takedown, looked really crisp and was timed to perfection. Hot tag has Finlay clearing house and looking damn near invincible, finish is a fine 'send the crowd home happy' moment with Finlay tagging Allmark in to hit a moonsault for the win.


Derrick King vs Frankie Tucker Last Man Standing, (5/25/12)

Really great LMS match, without the pitfalls of recent WWE style LMS's with all the stoppages in between counts and over reliance on weapons instead of out and out brawling. Pretty much every moment of offence here is a ridiculously stiff punch, with both men clearly having learnt from the Dundee's and Lawler's of the Memphis era. King using a fan's boot and a lady's walking stick as weapons is the sort of cartoony shit I really dig in these run down, back alley indy feds and I loved their use of the surrounding to brawl and beat the piss out of each other. Finish was truly excellent with King hitting a desperation superkick, and with both men down Tucker's right hand man drops underneath the apron and holds King's legs down to stop him answering the count. There were some really unique and well layed out spots here, and I loved Tucker resorting to choking King with a chain to try and force a victory. Just a straight out and out fight that resembled a less chaotic version of Jacobs/Whitmer from FYF.

This two are my MOTYs behind Cena/Lesnar. The two Callihan vs Finlay are also motherfucking great.

Thanks a lot for this, man.

This was a really refreshing ladder match: probably the first ladder match I've seen since the Briscoes/Steenerico one that was actually largely innovative. One of my biggest problems with ladder matches is how idiotic slow climbing can be, but there really wan't any of that here. There were a couple overly-contrived spots where guys did illogical things to set up for spots, and there was one really bad botch that made them have to re-set a spot, but those are small issues for a match that is easily ****1/2 for me.
