Kofi Kingston Vs Dolph Ziggler (Superstars 08/03/2012)

In the greater scheme of things I don't think this will be near most people's MOTYC list, but if we're to look at it solely for TV or WWE then I don't see why this match shouldn't run at the forefront of anyone's list. It's a very decent back and forth match-up with quite a nice finishing stretch that plays on Dolph's strategic manner of wrestling and Kofi's out-of-nowhere offence.

Dolph's mannerisms and general heel shtick are almost second-to-none right now, and I simply love watching him do his thing whenever he's on TV. I'm even considering changing my sigpic to the headstand he did in this match. I mean, not to sound too homoerotic, but Vickie's face is basically a perfect representation of how I feel about Dolph. I'm really hoping WWE keep utilising him as their workhorse, especially when some of the better FCW talent are called up.

Rating: 3.75

My 80th match of this year, too. Inb4 "get a life, loooooooolz"

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I thought it was better than their other 198 matches

It's really good btw but I thought Kofi stopped it from being great. His offence is really sloppy and he kinda fluffed the finish so the crowd weren't as into the final pin as they maybe could have been but Ziggler was brilliant enough to make up for Kofi's shortcomings. Probably top 5 WWE TV match so far in 2012 but not the best at all.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Ziggler really should be positioned at the top of Raw or Smackdown after Wrestlemania.

Whatever is given to him, he uses and makes it absolutely brilliant.

When you wonder about a whole package, you just need to look at him.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Ziggler/Kofi was really good. Ziggler is so awesome right now, this guy has it all. As for the match I'd give it around ***3/4, really strong tv MOTYC but the first two Punk/Bryan matches are easily better.

Top 5?

I've only got four WWE TV matches in my top 30 MOTY list and I'd easily slot this match in the top three (with the Punk/Bryan Raw match not too far ahead).
  1. CM Punk Vs Daniel Bryan (Smackdown 22/02/2012) 4+
  2. CM Punk Vs Daniel Bryan (WWE Raw 30/01/2012) 4
  3. Daniel Bryan Vs Big Show (WWE Smackdown 13/01/2012) 3.75
  4. CM Punk Vs Dolph Ziggler (WWE Raw 02/01/2012) 3.5

With Ziggler/Kofi I just scrape 5. Pray tell which matches I must be missing?

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

  • Daniel Bryan vs Big Show - No DQ Match - World Heavyweight Championship - Smackdown 13.01.2012
  • Usos vs Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks - NXT 25.01.2012
  • CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan - Raw 30.01.2012
  • Randy Orton vs Wade Barrett - No DQ Match - Smackdown 03.02.2012
  • Usos vs Curt Hawkins & Tyler Reks - NXT 08.02.2012
  • Daniel Bryan vs Randy Orton - Smackdown 10.02.2012
  • Tyson Kidd vs Curt Hawkins - NXT 15.02.2012
  • Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus - Smackdown 17.02.2012

were all better I thought so I guess around top 10-12. I'm really not high on Kofi though and I didn't like the Superstars match as much as others.

Those in red are ones I disagree with, but I'll give those NXT matches a try. I have a feeling the disdain you have for Kofi I have tenfold for Reks and Hawkins but Kidd's usually good enough to pull a decent match out of most people, so I'm sure Hawkins (at the very least) will be no different.

Suppose my Sunday shall be busy, then. What with these and my growing pile of WON MotY winners from the 80s to go through.

As an aside, I'm thinking of starting a thread called "Shattering The Hype" where people can post reviews slating widely loved matches they don't find any good - inspired by the Ramon/HBK ladder match and Nervosa's signature.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Hey, Rah, do you have your list of MOTYs up somewhere? I would be interested in seeing it.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

PAC vs Rich Swann vs Brodie Lee vs Sami Callihan - 2CW 21.01.2012
http://vimeo.com/36790596

Awesome sub 10 minute spotfest. Crowd go nuts for everything and you've got 4 strong enough characters in there to care about the spots. Brodie's early domination was great, especially that punch when Sami charged at him off the belt. Swann's flips are crazy good and he's improved a shit ton since touring with Dragon Gate. Before he was just flips but now like PAC & Ricochet he's learned how and when to do them effectively and he's starting to fit the pieces together into becoming a really great high flyer. Swann's the star of this. Him and Sami have some awesome sequences together and they hit each other really fucking hard in a great great way. PAC's on his holidays so just shows up to do some of his trademark shtick but that's better than most things on the Indies right now and in this type of a match it's great. All 4 men rocked in this, the spots were incredible and the crowd were crazy. You wont see many better sub 10 minute matches than this in 2012.


***3/4+
