What's your WWE MOTY?
It's definitely Cena/Brock, but I've yet to see Punk/Bryan from OTL and Shield/Hell NoBack.

Gonna watch this right now. There's a link on dailymotion if anyone is interested.

EDIT- Well that was just awesome fun. Now I want either Kenny/Generico vs SSB or Kenny/Generico vs Future Shock and I can die a happy man. Anyway ****1/4 sounds about right. Ending was sick.

Came across the SSB/Young Bucks/Future Shock ladder match on Dailymotion too, think it deserves a rewatch.

Yeah, great list. The idea that I will watch all of that is unlikely, but I'll keep it around.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Sami Callihan vs Dave Mastiff, SWE (2/24/12)

Really fun David vs Goliath match and definitely an example that Sami can work a more basic and 'classic' match alongside his more violent matches. Honestly couldn't see many people disliking this as both guys really bring everything you want from this style of match. Mastiff is a great fat man wrestler with some really reckless and violent looking offence and he's a great base for an underdog to work off and Sami is the sort of guy who isn't afraid to take some really disgusting and hard bumps to get over the offence of his opponent. Loved the build throughout with Sami twice paying dearly for trying to lift the bigger Mastiff, especially loved how the fireman's carry attempt turned into what appeared to be a rib-breaking fall crushing Sami. I could see some people finding the small sequence in the middle of the match where Sami taunts Mastiff to bring it irritating, but I found it appropriate to get over his resiliency and show a bit of passion (bare in mind this is someone who found the BJW Sasaki match to be hurt by some of Sami's verbal antics, so its definitely not a case of me trying to defend everything he does).

The finishing run is really well worked. Sami looks a spent force trying to lift himself back into the match and I loved him brushing off a strike to hit the bodyslam before collapsing in the corner to sell the effort it took to hit the move. I also loved his varied approaches in taking Mastiff down, such as resorting to stomping his toes alongside his strikes when he failed earlier by going toe to toe with Mastiff. Superkick into the leg to setup a second attempt at the sunset flip powerbomb was a nice combo to sell the size of Mastiff and the resulting bump was hideous and produced a truly believeable nearfall. Actual finish itself was also exceptionally timed and was a satisfying conclusion. Vivalabrave would like this.


Precious vs Brian Christopher, Steel Cage Match, SLAMMERS (6/21/12)

Man, this is just everything I love about pro wrestling and Memphis especially. Christopher has never really wowed me in all honesty and this match in truth is all about the monumental discovery that is Precious. He's just a brilliant Pantomine Villain and a great antagonist to rile the crowd up with his exotic antics and prancing around the ring. The bit where he cockily does a 69 position pin on Christopher just sealed how quirky and surreal yet brilliant the gimmick is. Also helps that he's quite the vicious animal when he wants to be and can certainly hold his own in a cage match. He bumps comically for all of Christopher's offence and finds the balance between acceptable overselling to fit the gimmick just fine. His cage bumps were also incredible, getting great height and having no fear in launching himself into each and every bump. Loved all his cheating antics including the powder to gain a momentary advantage, and the final battle on top of the Cage was just the sort of spot I should hate but worked in the context of the match. Watch for the wonders of Precious and a couple of nice Christoper bumps. Pretty sure I've wrote about it as well as Seabs but people should watch the Lawler/Christopher vs Derrick King/Precious tag from 6/2 this year. Incredible spectacle and any Memphis fan will love it. Vivalabrave will almost certainly love it.


James Mason vs Robbie Dynamite, (9/7/12)

Really fun showcase match for James Mason fans and the British style of wrestling. The benchmark for quality of Mason's work will always be the stellar Allmark feud from 2011, but this is a really nice example of his work and progresses from a clean sporting competition into a grittier fight with Dynamite becoming more aggressive and violent once Mason begins to seize the advantage in the hold trading. Couple of really swank reversals and counters from Mason, whose agility continues to amaze me on a match by match basis and the finish is a perfect example of that. Not necessarily as violent or creative as say a Finlay match, but it still has a nuanced charm about it and I couldn't see fans of the British style or indeed Mason or Dynamite disliking this.
