I still have a lot of wrestling too catch up on but that pretty much sums up my favorite matches from this year. I was reading this thread and there was no mention of The Miz and Kofi Kingston TV match from a couple of weeks ago. Definitely a TV MOTY canidate that a lot of people should check out if they haven't yet.

Project Ego vs The Thrillers - IPW:UK No Escape 2012
Super fun tag match. Project Ego are awesome goofballs. God wrestling needs more goofy heel tag teams like them. They sacrifice a lot of the length that you'd normally give the heat segment to the babyfaces working on top but when the babyfaces running roughshod on the goofy heels is this good then it probably works for the better. Haskins and Redman are really good as british fans should know. Sucks Haskins kinda flopped his chance in TNA on first impressions which count for everything because he's really good and has a super superstar look about him. Redman's on NXT now so good for him. He hits some peachy suplexes towards the end. Great babyface team. Great heel team. Well laid out match. Guess what you end up with.

****

Zack Sabre Jr. vs Sami Callihan - IPW:UK No Escape 2012
Shame that the second half of this wasn't as great as the first half because otherwise it could have been a legit MOTYC. Both guys kill each other at the start and work super stiff. Zack needs to work more of these matches and not just when he faces Walter or Sami. This is obviously where Sami's at his best too and he doesn't let his annoying mannerisms get in the way of him beating someone up. Loses its way a bit in the second half and they kinda give up any limb work they started and lay off on the stiffness a bit too. Still really good though.

***3/4

Chris Masters vs Stixx - IPW:UK Revolution 2012
Ahh the nostalgic feeling of Masters carrying an average guy to a great Superstars esque match. Masters needs to turn up on more Indy shows and do his thing because his thing rules. Hasn't lost a step and he's still awesome working from the bottom up. Finish is really good too. Stixx is a guy that normally sucks but Masters leads him to by far the best thing he's ever been apart of. Probably just shy of a nomination with any weight but it's Masters in a great match and people who dug his Superstar run will dig this just as much as me.

***3/4

Marty Scurll vs Sami Callihan - IPW:UK Revolution 2012
Great match. Sami on smaller shows tends to deliver more often than not because he's just doing what he's best at and not overdoing his character so that it feels forced and phony. Stuff on the stage was great. Scurll really steps up to a level he hasn't been in a singles match before. Leg work is good and the good thing about leg work in Callihan matches is that it always goes somewhere and isn't just filler. Scurll's selling is great and not just when the leg gets attacked. Dug the finish given the context of the match with Marty working from behind for the majority of the match post stage bump and the leg halting any of his attempted comebacks. Good way of making your new champ look great without making Calliahn look any worse than him.

****1/4

DDT Max Bump - El Generico vs. Kota Ibushi - ****
DDT 10-21-12 - El Generico vs. Kota Ibushi - ****

I think the 2nd match was getting better but I wasn't expecting that finish.

WWE Wrestlemania XXVII
Undertaker vs Triple H - ****3/4
Chris Jericho vs CM Punk - ****1/4+
The Rock vs John Cena - ****

I hated the show when I first saw it but I guess it was cause I was so pissed after Sheamus vs Bryan BS and this crap killed my excitement. Overall great WM when the undercard matches were nothing special but noting bad (Kane/Orton **1/2, Rhodes/Show **, T. Teddy/T. Johnny **1/4 and the Divas was better than usual and it was Kelly's best performance ever).

@EmbassyForever: Hey dude you're missing an "I" on the end of XXVII there lol.
____________

Masato Yoshino & Naruki Doi vs. YAMATO & Shingo Takagi (8/2/2012)- ***3/4-****

-Great twin gate title match. Quick feeling out process before both teams started to trade momentum. Lots of back and forth mixed with their trademark sequences, we also got some hilarious miscommunications between both teams that I would’ve liked to see them play more into but oh well. Really good finishing stretch with everyone desperately looking to put the opponent away; in the end YAMATO finally scores the Galleria for the fall, thus earning a title shot against CIMA. Great stuff.

Dean Allmark vs Stixx - IPW:UK Extreme Measures 2012
Allmark at it again. Maybe I'm warming to Stixx or maybe it's just him having good guys to work with but this is the 4th Stixx match I've watched this week that has been good or really good. Allmark has really good matches with everyone though and this is no different. Fall away slam on the floor was an awesome spot and set the finish up really well. Match peaked at the finish which always rocks.

***3/4

Mark Andrews vs Wild Boar - Progress Chapter 2
Seen a few Wild Boar matches now and he's never really impressed me but this was awesome and both guys looked tremendous. They've clearly got a lot of experience working together and the chemistry is great in this. Feels like those old **** matches you'd get in the middle of ROH cards during the glory years where guys just go out and have a great wrestling match. Package piledriver powerbomb was nuts. Great little match that came out of nowhere.

****

London Riots vs Velocity Vipers - Progress Chapter 2
Oh good god this is amazing. Riots are tow thuggish bullies. Vipers are scrawny looking insects. The thugs kill the wannabe boy band. And by kill I mean they absolutely destroy them and it's fucking amazing. Vipers get enough spots in for it to be competitive enough but Riots cut them off everytime and go back to destroying them some more. Someone needs to send me every London Riots match that exists. This is on youtube as well as DVD so there's reason not to watch it because this ruled the earth.
