Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I'm going to watch Kingston v Tadasuke from KOT night 2 soon, anyone seen it? Kingston's sort of been one of my favourite 2012 guys and no one's really talked about him. I want the SDR and Jigsaw matches soonish.

Kingston has a really fun match with some dude I've never heard of here:

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Match screams big, surly New Yorkers knocking the snot out of each other.

Match vs Tadasuke is really good, imo. Made me like Tadasuke and I previous hated him. Or maybe it was Kingston that helped that come along. Either way, Kingston deserves more pimping. There is a reason why he's still the Grand Champion in Chikara. He's excellent. Although, I won't argue when Donst gets it come this season.

You suck the blood of the afflicted.

Tomoka Nakagawa (c) vs. Kana (SMASH) 19.01.2012

Just watched this and for the time it got this was a really good match. Loved Kana's work on the arm and leg which was sold well by her opponent throughout the match. Really smartly worked as well as even though Kana didnt use holds throughout the entire match a lot of her strikes were targeted right on the arm. The submission work on the leg and arm at the same time was really unique and the finish whilst I could see coming finished the story of the match off beautifully. Really enjoyed this.

*** 1/2

**** <3 ****

PWG Mystery Vortex

Eddie Edwards & Roderick Strong vs The Young Bucks
This is how to open a show, and it's also how to do a non-stop action match without it being bad. This was great fun. Bucks are awesome heels as usual, and it makes it all the better when Strong and Eddie are just out there to hit people hard and hurt them. Great sequences, hot crowd, great commentary. Yeah, this was great.

Kevin Steen vs Adam Cole
Great, brutal match. Steen went out there to kill Cole and they really did a good job of getting that across with the way he toyed with him. Cole was great at being beaten up and he sold everything really well. I loved when Cole eventually got some offense in and Steen was super quick to go for the cover once he had him down again instead of messing around like he was before. Thought it got a bit slow in places like Cole looking for the ladder and the set up for the chair stack spot. Some nice spots but only two big ones which was really nice to see. Chair stack was ridiculous as fuck, and the thumbtack stuff was great too. Didn't think it was a proper MOTYC contender like the ladder match, but I liked this a hell of a lot.

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yoshihito Sasaki vs Tsutomu Oosugi & Hercules Senga - BJW 29.10.2012
Strong BJ doing what it does best. Taking a team of undercard rookies and putting them against the established stars. It's a faultless formula and low and behold it delivers again here. Senga and Oosugi are skinny shrimps and have to fight for their lives just so they don't get butchered here. Fight for their fucking lives they do. Early onslaught to take Sekimoto and Sasaki off guard is brilliant and you really feel like they're fighting for survival and not just for moves. Missed top rope dive is a super transition spot into them getting destroyed. Sasaki and Sekimoto destroying little skinny guys is always gonna be fun and Sekimoto gives a little extra in this than you usually get. Comeback and the finish is really fun too. Sekimoto and Sasaki's OUTRAGE at the end capped it off perfectly. WOOLCOCK should like this despite not being high on Strong BJ because this is basically like that London Riots match I got you to watch but Speed Of Sound are much better than Velocity Vipers.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Sami Callihan vs AR Fox - Tables Match - DGUSA Open The Golden Gate
Really good little gimmick war. Dug the reduced length for it. Allowed them to cut straight to the point and got the intensity over better. Fox isn't any good but he's fine in this environment because he's a nutjob who'll bump his as off to make a gimmick match work. Some really good spots too which had enough hatred and intensity to fit in with the story without feeling like a fancy spot for the sake of a fancy spot. Only negative was how hilariously bad Sami is at setting weapon spots up.


Prince Devitt vs Low Ki - NJPW 11.11.2012
Not normally a huge fan of either guy these days but I thought this worked really well as a fun juniors match. I don't have much in between with back and forth matches anymore but I was invested in this. Felt contested enough and they both pulled some original stuff which was cool. Ki totally no selling Devitt's finisher hurt it though. Fun stuff anyway. Memory of their previous match last year is hazy but I think I just preferred it to this.


Shinsuke Nakamura vs Karl Anderson - NJPW 11.11.2012
Nakamura's my forecasted shout for 2013 WOTY. There's some combinations in wrestling that will just produce good matches without even trying. This is one of them. Nakamura singles match with just about anyone is bound to be really good but particularly these two. Anderson's machine gun spot with Nakamura down in the corner was glorious. Nakamura returning the spot was gloriouser. Rail spot was a great turning point. Really dug Nakamura's all or nothing comeback on the floor when he had the opening but then couldn't capitalise on it for selling. Finish isn't as hot as normal due to them both lying on the mat for stages to sell which took me out of the end a little bit. Not everything worked here but enough did.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

2012 was the year in which Karl Anderson supplanted Goto as my favorite opponent for Nakamura, with three matches that were not only **** or higher for me, but had little or no problem with sameness (something that's hurt my enjoyment of certain more acclaimed series in the recent past). 4/5 and 11/11 might all be in my top 50; 5/3 would probably make a top 100 if I made one. They also had one of the best matches of 2011's G1 Climax. Just magic together.
