Where does it rank compared to your other high end MOTYC's?
Its hard this year, mostly because its harder to download all the matches I want, so the list has a lot of things I viewed online instead of just a file I can open and sort. I might be missing something obvious, here.
Also consider the fact that nearly all of these need to be rewatched:
1. Okada vs. Naito ****3/4
2. Richards vs. Elgin ****1/2
3. Okada vs. Tanahashi (Dominion) ****1/2
4. Lesnar vs. Cena ****1/2
5. Jimmyz vs. Mad Blankey Infinity 252 ****1/2 (oooo, controversial!)
6. CM Punk vs. Daniel Bryan OTL ****1/2
7. SSB vs. Bucks vs. Future Shock ****1/2
That is everything I have at 4 1/2 or higher, which is really exciting. The last time I really followed MOTYCs in 2010, I think there was one match I considered that good the whole year. I consider this year a major renaissance, especially since its not just one guy making MOTYCs, its a large pack of very good performers.
Shinsuke/Tanaka vs. Naito/Goto was up there, but it REALLY fell off on the rewatch. I hated the finish to Bryan/Seamus, and didn't dig either Aries/Roode match very much, especially the second. Way too much stuff happened in both those matches for no reason at all. Also really, really hated the first Okada/Tanahashi match this year.
