I don't mind what smitlick does generally because he's good about giving explanations when asked and having been around here long enough I know his tastes well enough to know what to expect from a match based on what star rating he gave it and he rates so many matches that I'd never be able to sit through that I won't begrudge him just posting star ratings and such (particularly in the DVD thread), but yeah when you're coming into the MOTYC thread it is always always always better to have some words about a match.

even if it's just "thought x dragged on too long, and I didn't care for y, though z was a lot of fun" that's immensely preferable to "***1/4" imo

In the last third, Ibushi also looked more upset and invested than I can ever remember him being in a match before, way ahead of his Hino and Ki matches. It wasn't just a gutcheck, but like he was really shaken up and feeling it.

I personally don't have the time to write long winded reviews for every show I watch. I can provide feedback to anything if asked but I really struggle to find the time to watch them let alone write essays on why this weeks Greg Excellent match was bad or how many times Ruckus botched moves...

This too... I often find that unless its actually something from some of the longer time posters here like Seabs/You/Kingcrash etc I usually skip through explanations unless theres something completely different about the rating compared to other times I've seen the match reviewed.

They're un-stickied, so they'll just be floating around in previous pages of the Other Wrestling threads.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

They got mass archived. I've moved them back no so just go to the first post of each one and you can get back to 2008.
