Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yep, those are mine too. And probably top 3 overall as well tbh. Maybe throw Cena/Brock up there with them.

Basically...New Japan fucking owns.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah, I got to have Cena/Brock in there. Toss in maybe something with CM Punk and that's my top 5.

New Japan has been the top promotion for me this year. Continues to be amazing.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

About NJPW G1 Climax Night 4 (8/5/12)

Out of all the matches, the three MOTYCs were as Seab said, Shelton/Anderson, Yano/Suzuki, and Okada/Nakamura. Which is funny, because two of these matches were heel vs heel, a so called no-no in promotions like WWE.

I was REALLY surprised by Shelton/Anderson. It was such a quick match, but fun one nonetheless. It even told a story, one that definitely benefited both wrestlers even if one ultimately won. It made Shelton look like a athletic beast, and Anderson a underdog with a very dangerous weapon. The ending caught me by surprise because you don't see spots like that very often in NJPW, but it's been done plenty of times in WWE. But the difference in how NJPW did it was that it wasn't just a cool moment; it was also a "snatching victory from the jaws of defeat" moment. It fit the story to a tee. So yeah, it didn't set the world on fire, but I'd recommend it. Definitely a four star.


Yano Toru vs Minoru Suzuki was just plain awesome. Part of the remarkable thing about this match and Nakamura/Okada is that it was a heel vs heel match. Yes, Japanese fans don't cater to the whole face/heel dynamic as much as Western fans do, and they were siding with Yano throughout, but still, both wrestlers played up their character specific heel antics throughout this match. Yano was trolling hard, Suzuki aimed to make him pay big time. There were so many hilarious and great moments in this match from beginning to end. The near count-out (a serious taste of your own medicine moment), Yano apologizing, and of course, the reactions to the ending. This match was definitely a highlight of the G1 Climax tourney, and is well worth watching.


And then there was the battle for CHAOS supremacy. Ok, not yet, but it will happen next year IMO. Nakamura vs Okada was expected to be fantastic. And it was, for the reasons I expected. The character quirks, the tension (even though they are in the same stable), the one-upmanship, and of course, the finishing stretch. It was Nakamura being Nakamura, and Okada being Okada. I wouldn't want it any other way.


Out of these three, bias aside, I think Yano/Suzuki was the best match.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

So it's non-existent to find even though some managed to get their hands on it?

I have to see Nakamura vs Okada. Like now.
