Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
Meh, Elgin/Richards is still my MOTY. I'd put it down to live bias as I was totally marking out in person, but then I still loved it on a rewatch. I can understand some of the criticisms levied against it, but I wouldn't necessarily agree with them. Personally I thought the match made Elgin a star. Since the match, he's relied too heavily on the 'kick out at 1' comeback towards the end of his matches, but back in March it was pretty cool and made him look like a beast, especially as it was done at just the right moment when everyone legit thought the match was over. Hey, I'm in the relative minority in thinking it was a terrific contest, but I thought I'd voice my opinion and come to its defense!
