Sir you have wandered into new territory. I would like to inform you of this before anyone pops up out of nowhere and things get crazy.

And as far as WOTY, I'm going to say no for Elgin. Even just for the independents I can't say I would agree. I've liked some of his matches but he is hit or miss with me.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

My top five would look a little something like this:

NJPW 10/12 Hiroshi Tanashi vs Minoru Suzuki = 100%/*****
ROH 4/12 Davey Richards vs Michael Elgin = 100%/*****
ROH 10/12 Kevin Steen vs Michael Elgin = 96%/****3/4
CHIKARA 6/12 FIST vs Young Bucks = 90%/**** 1/2
WWE 4/12 Undertaker vs Triple H = 89%/**** 1/2

Currently catching up so expect this list to change. Lots of PWG, CHIKARA, and Puro to catch up on. About to watch pretty much Okadas entire title reign so I'd expect atleast a match to crack the top 5.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Has anyone seen Davey Richards vs Harry Smith for PWS back in January? Won't make the top of many MOTYC lists but an excellent showing from both men.

82%/****

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I did, gave it 4* too. The show was really fun too, I enjoy watching PWS when they've good cards, their product is pretty good IMO.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Kris Travis vs Dave Mastiff - PCW Guild Wars
Finally a great Mastiff match from 2012 Mastiff's a super fatty bulldozer that WWE so need to pick up. Or even just get a tour in Japan. He's so under utilised just working the UK Indy Scene for a guy with his size and his talent. Travis is a super babyface worker on top of being an amazing goofball heel with Kirby. Travis is great too. So you've got 2 great workers and they work a really well structured match. Wrestling is simple at times. Mastiff's a great bully in control of the loveable babyface and makes the control segment rule. They work a really nifty finishing stretch too.

****

Akira Tozawa vs El Ligero - PCW Guild Wars
Workrate match of the year for me so far. Ligero isn't very good at all but Tozawa is so bossy in this and they work a well structured workrate match. Finishing sequence is great and the near falls work a treat without ever feeling like they're kicking it out of stuff because that's the cool thing to do these days.

****1/4

Loving the PCW reviews - have you been to a show yet? Every card since Guild Wars has been really good & the atmosphere last weekend was rowdy as hell.

All their hype is focused on the December 'supershow' with Morrison, Masters, Eugene, Edwards & Elgin, but the January line-up already looks amazing: Travis vs. T-Bone Bullrope match (!), Kirby & Ligero vs. Young Bucks, and 'cruiserweight' Dave Rayne vs, Noam Dar.

It's totally bizarre having such an entertaining promotion appear on my doorstep.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Nah I haven't been. If anyone I know went wrestling shows then I'd make the trip. The venue in Preston is like perfect for the shows they run. The next 2 shows do look great indeed. Great to see them adding some big names to their own talent too. Everyone needs more Dave Rayne in their life.
