Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Tanahashi vs Okada **** 1/4 some over selling by Okada imo his leg was barely worked over and he was selling it like death then 10 seconds later totally forgot about it around the time he hit the ddt going into the finish which didn't bug me all that much since like I said it was barely worked over still found it kinda funny. Nasty finishing move eat your heart out Hansen. Also haven't seen it pointed out yet but Tanahashi had at least 1 of his two front teeth knocked clean out in this match might have been both couldn't quite tell but it was pretty gross.

Aries vs Shelly ***3/4

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Can't wait to see the New Beginning matches, especially Tana/Okada, Nakamura/Naito and NRC/Apollo 55.

I'll be watching that 6 man BJ tag Seabs posted about on the last page tonight I think.

Austin Aries vs Alex Shelley-TNA AAO

A really fun match, but I don't think it's ****. If it lasted a few minutes longer then maybe, but still a very enjoyable match.

***1/2

That is why it's called organized crime.

Austin Aries vs. Alex Shelley - TNA Against All Odds - ***3/4

Very fun match and easily the best TNA's done in 2012. Very good selling by Shelley, Aries was the perfect heel and everyone bought the 1st brainbuster fall. That was probably the most awake the crowd was all night besides Jeff Hardy's emo teenage fans.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yuji Nagata & Wataru Inoue vs Masayuki Kono & Minoru Tanaka(AJPW 03/02)
What an awesome little match this was. I like this Nagata against AJPW storyline. Nagata was the man in this match. The armbar spot by Tanaka was the highlight for me, great stuff. ****

NRC vs Apollo 55 - NJPW New Beggining
This is probably my new favourite match between these two teams. Just great stuff here for about 20 minutes. Pretty much a sprint all the way but it worked and they played off some spots in their previous matches really well. I thought Davey looked great here and again he shows that he isn't terrible, he's actually really bloody good when he keeps his shit to a minimum and doesn't go overkill on everything. Maybe it's Romero keeping him in check or something, I don't know, but whatever it is I don't see why he can't transfer it over to his work in America . Anyway, the finishing stretch was awesome with some new moves from both teams and I dug the finish too. ****

Nakamura/Naito was good too but nothing MOTYC level. Nakamura has become my favourite guy to watch in Japan now. I really have a hard time liking Naito matches though, I can't quite put my finger on it.

I'll watch Tana/Okada later on.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I re-watched few Open The Golden Gate matches, especially PAC vs. Tozawa (the live stream was broken), and now I can rate the match, finally. This is my MOTY so far, it was really incredible. Fantastic match with mind-blowing finishing stretch. Can't wait to see the rubber match, since they're 1-1 now. God damn, Tozawa is fucking awesome. The whole show was really outstanding, with 3 MOTYCs (Fox/Callihan, main event and PAC/Tozawa). You can't go wrong with DGUSA.
Rating: ****1/2

MOTYCs:

1. PAC vs. Akira Tozawa ****1/2
2. Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Minoru Suzuki ****1/4
3-6. Ronin vs. Super Smash Brothers ****
Sami Callihan vs. A.R. Fox ****
The Spiked Mohicans vs. Mochizuki & Susumu ****

I need to see The New Beginning.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada - NJPW 12.02.2012
Weaker than most of Tanahashi's title matches last year I'd say but Tana's awesome and more than gets a great match out of it. Okada simply isn't ready to be working matches at this level and putting him with Naito in a title match could be dreadful. Thankfully it's at K.Hall so the crowd will help them. Okada's solid but he's not main event level quality yet and he's really dull which only hurts him further. Tana's maybe the best main event worker going anywhere right now and he showed exactly why here. Okada's selling kinda killed part of the match. It was neither here nor there. One moment he wouldn't sell at all and then another he'd suddenly be overselling it. I fucking hate tombstone spots when they mean nothing too. He did a tombstone in the crowd on the floor and it was completely irrelevant really. Poor Tanahashi must have really fragile teeth these days. He lost one against Nakamura last year too. Finish stretch was awesome (Tana's the best main event worker going btw) and they never went past their peak either which helped them a ton. Would have been a legit MOTYC if Okada sold better and imposed himself on the match better.
