Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Surely Punk vs Bryan will happen full-on at some point in the near future. Hopefully it's the big feud of the US Summer, where it can be the focus of the shows, rather than being overshadowed by Rock/Cena and HHH/Taker.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Haven't given a rating to Punk/Bryan yet but it's the most I've enjoyed a match in a good bloody while. Excellent selling of the arm by Punk throughout the match (and even during the aftermath).

If only WWE Bragging Rights was still on the cards. That would have been the perfect excuse for these two to go balls to the wall.

La Sombra vs. Volador Jr.(01/22/12):****
Now this another one of those matches where I didn't know if I wanted to go up to **** but I did. This match had problems. There were some moments where they looked like they weren't exactly sure where was the next step. There were also a lot of spots that looked blatantly set up. That being said this match was full of great action and I couldn't say no to this match even though I picked these apart in my head. I don't watch a lot of lucha so maybe that's why it came off so well to me but some of the stuff they were doing was simply awesome. An extremely athletic contest. I might be overrating this match but it won't end up in my top ten by the end of the year so it isn't really that big of a deal.

Tajiri vs Finlay - Smash 19/02/12

http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xow...ay-smash_sport

Great match, The facial expressions of both are the fucking best. This is probably the best Tajiri performance in god know how many time, he go toe to toe with Finlay on the mat and constantly try to kick the fuck out of him. Finlay is great at the selling of the leg and at being a fucking prick. Then are 2 or 3 great nearfalls and desperations spots for both men.

MOTYC for sure

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

thanks for the link man! And damn...dailymotion has all the matches I was looking for in youtube, lol.

Tajiri vs Finlay was awesome. Finlay is so fucking great at the little thing that is impossible not to be compelled with what he is doing. Tajiri did a great job as the underdog too. The crowd was too respectful for my liking (they kinda showed up in final minutes though) but the in ring action and antics made up for the lack of heat imo.


Daisuke Sekimoto/Kazuki Hashimoto/Masashi Otani vs Daichi Hashimoto/Ryouji Sai/Shito Ueda - ZERO1 1.02.2012


So 5 seconds in and you already know there's gonna be some interpromotional hatred thanks to Daichi (that kid just gets it, only a catastrophe is gonna prevent him from being a star in a couple of years) so of course we are gonna get some HASHIMOTO ON HASHIMOTO VIOLENCE~!(speaking of kids that get it...if you are not a fun of Kazuki, shame on you, SHAME.ON.YOU!). Too bad this was clipped and that Otani didn't have a good showing, but fuck, I still had a ton of fun watching this.

***1/2-***3/4

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I loved the Punk/Bryan match on Raw, best match I've seen this year so far.

Good match, but it just felt disjointed and almost like they were wrestling at too fast a pace for them to process future structures/spots. Sombra ended up doing the same move three times, and that hurt the match for me. I don't mind if it's within context (Shingo's repeat lariat attempts that Nakajima kept kicking the life out of) or if it's repeatedly blocked and, within peril, the move finally works later on in the match. This time, however, it was nothing more than Sombra succeeding in hitting a move for what seemed like filler as he didn't know what else to do against Volador.

Rating: 3.75
I love how Sombra and Volador basically just swapped ownership of the NWA World Middleweight and CMLL World Welterweight titles, though. Panico, y u so strange booker?


La Máscara Vs Volador Jr. (CMLL Guadalajara: 2012-02-18)

I possibly would have liked this more if I hadn't seen Sombra/Casas straight before it. That match was more complete for me, and just made this feel like an athletic competition where two phenomenal young talents just went out there and hammered in some great spots for the sake of crowd reaction.

That's not to say it didn't have anything redeeming, I just expected much more from these guys. Hell, Bestia 666/Super Nova had a very good athletic start to their match in PDM at the end of January and they suck (and so did their match as a whole, btw). Great spots cannot do it for me if that's all there is to it. While this match had a greater depth than that PDM match, I still didn't like it to the point of it going four stars for me. 3.5, I suppose, but if I was to give that rating to any match it would have to be Casas/Sombra - a match I recommend anyone to go out their way and watch.

The ring-post powerbomb and final spot were great, though, despite the truly annoying las repeticiones. Three replays for a simple leg takedown?!

Rating: 3.5

La Sombra vs Negro Casas (CMLL Puebla: 2012-02-20)
at how good Negro Casas looks at 52 years of age.
Rating: ****

Totally cannot wait for the Casas/Panther lucha de apuesta match this Saturday.
