Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
This whole discussion about TNA not having any MOTYC brings up a fun little sidenote that we often overlook: not everyone's taste in wrestling is the same. I don't watch too much outside of WWE & TNA, but I will go out of my way to watch something that's getting praise.
For example, I heard nothing but great things about Richards/Elgin earlier in the year, but when I saw it, I was underwhelmed. It didn't feel like a big match (to me), the first 10 minutes didn't seem focused, and in general, I am not a fan of matches with tons of big moves and kickouts.
I'm not even entirely sure I could say definitively what a match of the year is... That means something different to everyone. I have a few favorite matches so far though and those include Bryan/Sheamus, Bryan/Punk, Aries/Bully, Aries/Roode (Destination X), and Cena/Lesnar. They all felt like big time matches (maybe with the exception of Aries/Bully), with great crowds that helped add something to the atmosphere. Just my two cents.
