I've seen the Raw EC rated **** with the same guy loving the hell out of Jericho's "complete dick heel" antics. That was match of the night, though, with the Smackdown EC being 3.75.

I wouldn't say he's that "misguided" as someone might claim to those ratings as I often used to find his tastes coinciding with min. Trouble is, though, that I've started taking his work with a pinch of salt, now, due to differences exactly like this.

Devitt&Taguchi vs Richards&Romero(2/12/12):***3/4
This was quite the match if I do say so. I enjoyed the hell out of it.Two of the best Jr. Teams around will almost always produce something really good and this was no exception. It is weird to see that in Japan Davey is just another Junior and isn't expected to be King of the World like he is treated in ROH. Why Romero doesn't wrestle in ROH I don't know. He seems like a guy ROH could really use at a time like now. Not quite a MOTYC but worth mentioning. This isn't going to end up on my list by the end of the year but I'll still consider it a fun and worthwhile match.
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Kazuchika Okada(2/12/12):****
Another great match from New Beginnings. Tanahashi is something else and just needs a decent wrestler to put on a great match. I don't know if Okada will be able to come close to the high standards Tanahashi set with the belt. This match felt big the entire time especially once Tanahashi got tombstoned on the outside. Just makes being a MOTYC for me but a MOTYC none the less for me.

Couldn't agree more. The SD chamber was incredibly dull until Show broke into Bryan's chamber then it was constant fun onwards, where as the Raw chamber was going great until Kofi went out, then the rest felt a little weak.

Props to WWE on somehow getting me in to Santino being in the chamber...never thought that would be possible.

Go Shiozaki vs Takeshi Morishima (NOAH 22/01)
I hadn't read a great deal about this and I definitely didn't hear anyone praising it much, so I was seriously surprised when I saw what I would consider a strong MOTYC. I loved Go getting frustrated and going after Mori's injured head, and the nearfalls were really good in the finishing stretch, I don't think anyone expected Morishima to kick out of the Go Flasher. I knew the result but still got pretty drawn in despite the dead crowd. The finish was awesome and thankfully didn't go into extreme overkill mode like a few of NOAH's recent heavyweight matches. The spot leading up to Morishima finally hitting the lariat was ace. I think I remember hearing something about there being too many lariats, but I didn't think that was the case, and I think it worked in getting Mori's lariat over as more powerful than Go's when he finally hit it. Some of the shots from Go were sick and intentional or not it made it seem like a big deal with how stiff a few of them were. Morishima is clearly more over than Go so it was probably a good decision even though I was liking pretty much all of Go's title defences. I really dug this match even if it did take a while to get going and imo it felt like a big time match even though the crowd was shit. ****1/4

It appears I'm in the minority but this is up there as a contender for best match of the year for me.

People who are bitching about Shima's lariats, they're lucky Jumbo is dead so he can't hear them.

Suwama vs. Daisuke Sekimoto(AJPW 01/02/12):****1/4
Daisuke Sekimoto really wants to be a front runner for WOTY doesn't he? Now, I don't know a lot about Suwama but I kept seeing his name in the MOTYC thread last year so I'm going to assume he kicks ass. The match definitely helped prove that. Suwama looks so big next to Daisuke but he learns pretty quick that he may not have a power advantage so he kills Daisuke's midsection which is bandaged.They worked such a good match and made Sekimoto's comebacks feel important which is always good. I don't really know how to describe it but these guys just had a weight about them. Where Nakajima vs. SHINGO is to Dragon Ball Z, Suwama vs. Sekimoto is to Transformers, if that makes any sense at all. If you don't get what I am saying then let me just say this match is awesome and you probably should watch it.

Though it eventually ended up being more about the GM's-Punk vs. Bryan, Smackdown 21, 2012.

Not as good as the Raw match but like I said the match wasn'treally about them as much as it was about getting the gm storyline across.

I hate it when we are watching a great match and we have to put up with commercial breaks, and in this case there were TWO . I had no problem with the overbooking because it made sense but even if it made sense it took away from the quality of the match imo.

Still, it's blatantly clear that if they give this two at least 20 minutes on PPV they are gonna put on a classic.

Punk vs Bryan (WWE Super Smackdown 21/02)
Well, that was fucking awesome to watch. Overbooked? Yeah completely, but incredibly entertaining. The match itself was an absolute clinic, and what would you expect from these two. Bryan is still the best wrestler in the world and he showed exactly why here, working on Punk's arm in relentless style, something Dragon obviously learned from Regal and it was so great to see something like that in the current WWE product. Punk then does an amazing sell job, similar to the way Ambrose sold his arm against Regal last year, or the way Rollins sold it against Ambrose, constantly holding it or having it by his side and switching arms on moves etc. There was a spot where they did a series of reversals and Punk ended up going for his spinning neckbreaker but couldn't do it because of his arm and he constantly sold it until after the match. Awesome. The two false finishes didn't even bother me, well the first one did since the match was too short, but it really played up to Bryans character and once they restarted it I figured there might be something else screwy leading to the other guy getting the victory. The ending was a perfect way to end the match imo, neither of these guys should be losing matches, and especially against eachother the only way is a draw, and the way they did it was great and both of them looked strong. I can see some people being put off by the overbooking, but it honestly didn't bother me because the wrestling was amazing. Great storytelling and action, Bryan showed why he's the best, and Punk showed why he's up there too. Loved every minute of it and maybe it's the fact that these two are 'our guys' still I don't know, but I haven't had that much fun watching wrestling since god knows when.

It's hard to put a rating on this because of what happened with the various finishes, but the story in the ring deserves **** at least. I'll have to watch it again knowing whats going to happen and see if that affects my enjoyment or not.

Seeing the two matches from them this year, makes me want to see them go against each other at WrestleMania 28. I'd be more excited for it than I am for Punk/Jericho and Bryan/Shaemus combined.
