Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yuji Nagata vs Masakatsu Funaki - AJPW 29.07.2012
This isn't close to being a MOTYC but I'll talk about it here since the next match sure as fuck is. Maybe I was just expecting the wrong thing. I dunno. Logic would tell you from the build and the Nagata/Kono series that this should be an all out war and a fight. Instead they work a mat based shoot style match like it was a special attraction match. For that type of match it was fine but I was puzzled as to why they worked the match like this given the build. Plodding mat based shoot matches aren't really my thing anyway. I just kept waiting for that one moment to set them both off on each other but it never happened. You could feel the heat just drain from the match when Nagata just stood back and let Funaki get his shoe back on and spend a minute tying his laces up. I wouldn't say it sucked but it was a massive let down. Forget about that though....

Suwama & Kaz Hayashi vs Masayuki Kono & Minoru Tanaka - AJPW 29.07.2012
..... because this was fucking money. Best Memphis style brawl I can remember seeing in the modern era. Unreal. This is ala 1980's All Japan with the Brodies, Funks and Hansens of the world tearing through the crowd and legit putting their safety in danger. This felt like an old Japanese lady might get crushed if she didn't grab her bad and run for the hills. Suwama's had a few really bossy reckless brawls in tags this year that have gone under the radar but this eclipses every one of them by far. If Hayashi and Tanaka put you off then don't let that affect you because they're only in it sparingly at best. They actually even just sit in a STF hold for like 5 minutes while Kono and Suwama brawl all over the place and then eventually they literally just give up and disappear. Fuck them though, this is Kono and Suwama out for blood and detached heads. I mentioned old ladies being in danger if they didn't move out of the way. That goes for cameramen too. Don't get in the way of Kono charging at Suwama or else you will quite literally go flying. Anyone who's fan of 80's Memphis style brawls should really appreciate this and if you're not then if you're missing out on 80's Memphis style brawls big time. It kinda feels like a really intense but by the books Korakuen brawl until the last 5 minutes when they really step up the insanity up way beyond the normal level and break about 89 health and safety violations. I honest to god screamed like a little girl when Suwama LAUNCHED that table at Kono. There's another point where Suwama gets whipped in the guard rail and rebounds off it like he's just running the ropes and it looks like the front row are on a ride at Disney as the rock back and forth off the momentum. I can't tell you how wild, chaotic and uncontrollably fun this is. Maybe top 10 for 2012? Around 8-15 sounds right. Gonna have to shoehorn this in on my comp somewhere. I'll get it uploaded over the weekend for everyone to enjoy. Don't do yourself a disservice and skip over this just because 2012 is over and you've done all your 2012 viewing.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I must have poor luck whenever I give them a chance. Nothing but decent matches at best. It's fun being Puro and all. Only matches I could have gone without seeing. I make that mistake with NOAH too much too.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Suwama & Kaz Hayashi vs Masayuki Kono & Minoru Tanaka, AJPW (7/29/12)

I wasn't in love with this match to the degree Seabs was, though it was a really bossy brawl especially when Suwama and Kono ventured into the crowd. Wasn't a big fan early on of their forearm strikes but the minute they started lariating, kneeing and just tackling each other to the floor the whole thing felt a lot more chaotic and sufficiently violent. Loved the build from their first exchange to the breakdown into a fight with Kono continually staring at Suwama as he was on the apron and both of them moving across the apron to each other for a verbal war whilst Tanaka and Hayashi were in the ring. There was a great 2-3 minute spell where the visuals were very impressive, especially the sequence where Kono did a Harley esque knee in the crowd and they began rugby tackling the other to the floor and then leading to the excellent spot where Suwama fought off 4 officials to grab the table and launch it at Kono who managed to duck in time. Speed with which he threw it at was amazing and would have decapitated Kono had it connected. The visual of the barricade rattling dangerously close to the crowd after Suwama hit it at tremendous force was excellent and the cameraman being floored by an oncoming Kono was a particularly nice touch. I didn't really begin to feel like it came into its own until around the final 5 minutes, where the brawling got much better and shifted from strike trading to out and out unconventional fighting. Very good in spells, just needed a motherfucker to get punched square in the jaw and the elderly lady to be jumping out of her seat for it to work its way into my heart.

just watch a couple of recent shows, and see what sticks with you. Take your time. No need to rush straight for the best stuff.
