Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Okada/Goto was great imo, but not on the level of the 2nd Tanahashi or Naito matches. I thought Goto was really good in it.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

16 Carat Tournament Day 3
2Face, Big Van Walter, Daisuke Sekimoto & Kim Ray vs. Axeman, Karsten Beck, Robert Dreissker & Yoshihito Sasaki:****1/4

This match is like an onion. This match is like a parfait. This match has layers. This has a lot to do with the elimination gimmick. Now I don't watch a lot of WXW but from what I can gather from this match is that Beck, Dreissker, and Walters are apart of a heel stable of somesort. Walter and Sekimoto are the key players being seen as the two most dominating wrestlers. BVW is a monster. He plays a monster better than maybe anyone I have seen on an independent level. Daisuke plays the foreign star. Axeman is the hometown favorite. Sasaki is also sort of a foreign star and also rivals with Sekimoto and shows to be ultra competitive. This match builds up eventually to the big 4 in Sekimot/BVW vs. Axeman/Sasaki which was the right decision. But before that there is 2Face doing a less crazy version of Sami Callihan. There is a point where Beck finds himself in the ring with BVW. He parades him around as a winner and then goes for a schoolboy. Bad decision. Then Beck tries tagging out. Axeman jumps down from the apron first, then Sasaki follows suit, then Sasaki and Axeman pull Dreissker off the apron since he was going to do it. Standing behind Beck is Sekimoto which is bad news bears for Beck. It was great. Then Dreissker found his way out of the match when Axeman and Sasaki hit him and forced him in completing their triple team and whipping him into BVW. Needless to say BVW wasn't okay with this. So when we get to the Big 4 that's when things go from good to great. Stiff as fuck. When Sasaki and Sekimoto are in the ring together they just beat the piss out of each other. It felt right out of BJW. The way Walters and Sekimoto(or The DREAM TEAM) worked over Axeman was magnificent. Throughout the match they had a proverbial pissing match between the two trying to prove who is better but they don't mind working with each other. They also wouldn't be opposed to killing each other in a match. Sasaki feels Axeman isn't pulling his weights at points even going as far as kicking Axeman right after he had broken up a pin attempt on Axeman. A very manly way of saying "Get you shit together". Did I mention this match was beautifully stiff? I don't know why this match happened but I won't complain since it was BALLIN'!!!

I have not seen these matches yet, but I'm making a list of some matches from CMLL, TNA and PWG and as soon I have some time I'll try to watch

Since Seabs retirement of media section it's very hard to get some matches individually, especially if it's not on dailymotion.

My 2013 MOTYs so far:

1. Katsuyori Shibata vs. Tomohiro Ishii - NJPW G1 Climax 04/08 *****
2. Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Kazuchika Okada - NJPW Invasion Attack 07/04 *****

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Watched that Ibushi/Omega match that people were talking about a bit ago, and yeah, it's ridiculous. I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy it, but there were parts that were downright terrible and parts that were really really good. It's the type of match that if you'd asked me in 09 it'd be my MOTY because of the ridiculous shit in it, but there are actually parts of very good storytelling in there somewhere, there was a pretty good control segment by Omega early on and it started very well but ultimately that led nowhere, and the selling of exhaustion and the affect of the match is genuinely great towards the end which is something that might separate this from a match like Davey/Eddie from FB. Still, no selling dragon suplexes and germans like nothing happened at all was so, so awful.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Too lazy to write anything in depth about this matches but just go watch New Japan's iPPV. There's at least 5-6 matches worth a look, 2 of them are really fucking good and 1 is probably the Match of the Year.

Kazuchika Okada vs Karl Anderson - New Japan "King Of Pro Wrestling"

One of those matches were you think it's just "good" until the final minutes and then you are left with the feeling you just saw something pretty damn great. Okada really is a serious candidate for WOTY and Anderson keeps stepping up when he is giving the chance to shine.

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Hirooki Goto - New Japan "King Of Pro Wrestling"

The usual from this two. And that's a VERY good thing.

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Minoru Suzuki - New Japan "King Of Pro Wrestling"

From what I'm hearing, it seems Meltzer is gonna give this the 5 snowflakes treatment, so it's gonna be a lot of discussion involving this match. All I know is that it was amazing, and it should be considered a REAL MOTYC. I guess it could of had a better final sequence, but truth is there was enough drama with all the submissions. Go see it and judge it by yourself. Al the very least you will be entertained.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

MAS QUE UNA PASION, UN SENTIMIENTO

Tana/MiSu from WK was great and is in my top 10 this year, so if this is better than I can't wait.

NJPW King of Pro Wrestling iPPV Review:

TOKYO DOME IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CONTENDERSHIP MATCH;
Kazuchika Okada (c) vs Karl Anderson - ****

IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH;
Hiroshi Tanahashi (c) vs Minoru Suzuki - ****3/4

Low Ki vs Ibushi, Romero and Koslov vs KUSHIDA and Shelley & Goto vs Nakamura were all ***1/2 IMO.
