Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Stixx vs Mark Haskins - No DQ - SWE Championship - SWE Retribution
There's a lot to like about this but I thought it wasn't quite fine tuned enough to give it MOTYC Status but it's still really good. SWE have a us vs them feud going on. Pretty generic stuff but it made this match feel really significant. Pretty sure they put plants in the crowd to go crazy for the two sides but it added a lot because it gave it a great heated atmosphere and got the rest of the crowd alive because they were poor for the rest of the show. Both guys take some great bumps and they do some really great near falls. They overbook it to hell but overbooked finishes are generally fun and this was. The finish they did coming off everything they did was poor though and I always hate how it takes the babyface team forever to come out and stop their guy being attacked by the entire of the other group. Really fun though and they managed to fill up 30 minutes really well. Recommend it. There's a really good Sabre vs Scurll match on the card too that's just lacking a bit of heat and edge to be at the level for this thread.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Just seen the Hardy/Aries Ladder match, I actually much preferred their match last month at Bound for Glory. The Ladder spots were pretty crazy, but the BFG match had a much better structure. And even with Aries' big fall out of the ring, the end of the Ladder match seemed somewhat anticlimactic to me. Still a good match, but I'd go ***3/4 as opposed to the **** I rated the BFG encounter.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

It's a fun match that I enjoyed. Wouldn't make my MOTYC list, but its something I can say that falls into my fun pile. I have it at ***.

That fall Jeff takes from when Aries came outside and quickly knocked the ladder out is absurd.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

My MOTYC list of TNA and PWG:


TNA

1. James Storm vs. Bobby Roode (BFG Street Fight) ****1/2
Bully Ray vs. Austin Aries (Sacrifice) ****1/2

3. Austin Aries vs. Jeff Hardy (BFG) ****1/4
WTTCOTW vs. AJ Styles & Kurt Angle (Slammy X) ****1/4
Bobby Roode vs. Austin Aries (Destination X) ****1/4

Since I'm making a Top 5, honorable mentions go to these three matches as well:

AJ Styles vs. Daniels (Last Man Standing) ****
Austin Aries vs. Jeff Hardy (Ladder Match) ****
Kurt Angle vs. Jeff Hardy (Victory Road) ****



PWG

1. The Young Bucks vs. Super Smash Bros vs. Future Shock (Threemendous III Ladder Match) *****
The Young Bucks vs. Super Smash Bros (Death To All But Metal No DQ Match) *****


3. Kevin Steen vs. Willie Mack (Threemendous III) ****1/4
The Young Bucks & Brian Cage vs. Rick Knox, El Generico & Kevin Steen (BOLA Night 2) ****1/4
Kevin Steen vs. Brian Cage (Death To All But Metal) ****1/4

Honorable mentions to these matches too:

El Generico vs. Ricochet (Death To All But Metal) ****
Adam Cole vs. Eddie Edwards (BOLA Night 2) ****
Kevin Steen vs. Ricochet (BOLA Night 1) ****
Michael Elgin vs. Ricochet (BOLA Night 2) ****
The Young Bucks vs. Super Smash Bros (DDT4)****
Future Shock vs. Super Smash Bros (DDT4) ****



WWE don't follow, ROH barely - so can't make the list for those two companies. Puroresu list is coming soon.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I know he only wrestles in ROH, but if there is anyone who deserves an award for being involved in the match of the year it would have to be Michael Elgin hands down. Hiroshi Tanahashi is the only other person I would remotely consider.

Two things.

1. Elgin wrestles or places aside from ROH
2. I wouldn't put him anywhere near the top of my list for Wrestler of the Year.
