Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
I've said the same thing. Try going to an indie event live and trying to talk to someone about WWE. Fucking idiot wouldn't even put ONE aspect of the company over. This was years ago btw. I was trying to talk about how awesome Punk being World Champion was. The guy's excuses and shaking his head over and over was hilarious. The only flaw then was ROH was actually still in a great place. Now when people try that it's even more baffling, frustrating, annoying.
That's how I rate matches. I can't give a match I don't like something decent or good. That's solid logic. "I hated this match. But it was pretty good." That...that doesn't work. Now there can be a match where someone isn't crazy about it, but they realize it wasn't bad. That philosophy is fine. Like for me, I really don't like Michaels vs Angle from WrestleMania 21. So I don't give it a good rating. That's all these snowflakes are used for. As a reference to know where you place things at. No different than any other ranking system out there. It comes down to quality & preference.
Tanahashi vs Suzuki & Okada vs Naito are both at ****3/4 for me. Tanahashi vs Okada II is at ****1/2. Tremendous matches. I've put those over all the time in this thread.
