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+
***1/2

Match was fine, It thankfully had minimal amounts of Callihan but i hated the finish. Just looked awful. Also a few spots like Brodie not pinning Swann after the Slam was just stupid.

Too Cold Scorpio vs Vordell Walker - PWE 1/28/12
http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=9qvK1jlu_Tw

Scorpio works this match like a skinnier, blacker, flashier Vader that can hit the mat. The short matwork segment we get is fine, but when they start laying the leather is when the match really picks up. This match was good enough to cause the douchebags in the crowd who were trying to get themselves over to shut the hell up and enjoy this damn good match, and I think that is mainly because the brutal stiffness of it all. Scorpio and Walker, who I don't really know much about, were hitting HARD. Scorpio had a really awesome punch combo on Walker after he got pissed. He also had some nasty kicks to the face and some his flip kicks. The thing about flip kicks is most of them suck, but not when Too Cold Scorpio does them. He just has a way of not letting things suck. Scorpio also took a belly to belly into the turnbuckle and landed right on his head. It was sweet. The finishing stretch was also really good. This match is definitely worth going out of your way to see.

I dont really see the comparison to Vader beside the Moonsault. The match was really slow and really not at all a MOTYC. Walker really isn't very good at all.

**3/4 at most for me.

Fit Finlay Vs Mal Sanders (London Eye 48)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0TucJ4D5T4


Off the bat: for those who found the Finlay/Tajiri match uninteresting, you probably will like this even less, but for what it was it really kicked some serious ass.

I'm not too clued up on the WoS-style but from what I've read many find it an old artform with true gems being few and far between. This match showed, though, that WoS still has a place in modern wrestling.

The change of style wasn't the only refreshing aspect to this match, either, as it seemed almost surreal to watch Finlay in the defensive position as opposed to the more hard-hitting, top dog role he's come to embrace in his Indy run. I doubt I've watched Mal Sanders wrestle before but his heel work was great, especially using the mid-round breaks as opportunities to attack Finlay's injured left hand when he wasn't ready for it. Instead of relying on his brawling, Finlay had to accustom himself to out-thinking the shrewd Sanders in picking up the win - picking out weaknesses within Sanders' cheating ways and finally picking out a win at the end because of it.

The ending felt a bit flat, but it still added to the little story dynamic within the match. Ultimately Sanders beat himself (well, cost himself the match) by giving Finlay an unnecessary win in the hopes of damaging him enough with the low blow to pick up his needed final two wins (best of 5) but it wasn't to be.

It's always fun watching two grumpy bastards beating each other and this was no exception. I'll definitely keep my ears open for more Sanders matches but I'm going to doubt any match will take this match's place as WoS MotY.

Pimped this in another thread for the action sequences, but it's nothing more than a simple yet fun "exhibition" of talent for 2CW's cancer benefit show. It took a while to get going, imo, but a few minutes in and shit just hits the fan left, right and centre. Brodie Lee definitely stood out at the beginning, due to his size, but once he hit that headscissors any doubter knew he could hang with the others.

Like smitlick said, however, I wouldn't really mark this as a MotY, though. Honourable mention, sure (as everyone needs to just see the balls craziness these guys put out), but I wouldn't pimp it as anything more. Super eager for 2CW's April events, though. That might deliver.

I didn't review this, originally, but I'll probably go about 3.5+ for it. Bottom of the barrel for my top 30 probably, but it's still a great spotfest each time I watch it.

Challenge accepted. (I'll probably fail miserably, though)

I actually don't.

I was thinking of starting a thread on the other forum, but I'm a bit too lazy to do write-ups for the ones I didn't nominate/review already so I held back on it. I'll gladly place a top 15 here, though I must say a lot is Puro as its been my unintended focus thanks to PWG KRR 3 and a few other American indies not surfacing yet not to mention I will probably rewatch and readjust quite a few of these but, as of right now, this is my top 15:

4.25+
  1. Kazuchika Okada © vs Tetsuya Naito (NJPW 40th Anniversary Event)
  2. Tajiri Vs Fit Finlay (Smash 25)
  3. Hiroshi Tanahashi Vs Okada Kazuchika (NJPW 12/02/2012)

4.25
  1. Kenny Omega Vs Hiroshi Yamato (AJPW 03/01/2012)
  2. Jun Akiyama Vs Takao Omori (AJPW 03/02/2012)

4+
  1. Daisuke Sekimoto Vs Suwama (AJPW 02/01/2012)
  2. Aoki Atsushi & Suzuki Kotaro Vs Kotoge Atsushi & Harada Daisuke (NOAH 22/01/2012)
  3. Hiroshi Tanahashi Vs Minoru Suzuki (NJPW Wrestlekingdom)
  4. Danshoku Dino Vs Antonio Honda (DDT 19/02/2013)
  5. Shingo Takagi Vs Katsuhiko Nakajima (Diamond Ring 11/02/2012)
  6. Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi Vs Akebono & Ryoto Hama (AJPW 03/01/2012)
  7. Kensuke Sasaki & Mitsuhiro Kitanomiya Vs Kenta Kobashi & Jun Akiyama (Diamond Ring 11/02/2012)
  8. CM Punk Vs Daniel Bryan (Smackdown 22/02/2012)
  9. Black Terry Vs Chico Che (IWRG 22/01/2012)
  10. Katsuhiko Nakajima Vs Taiji Ishimori (NOAH 25/02/2012)


Maybe it'll be good for all of us to do a quarter-annual listing of what our top ten/fifteen looks like so far, just as reference points?

Compared him to Vader because he beat the shit out of him, and I guess this is one of those things where our tastes are just way too different. Also, Vordell is pretty good going by this match.

Watched this yesterday as well actually. It's good, probably really good actually. Didn't think it was great or a MOTYC though. Scorpio looked great.

2 Cold Scorpio is going to work a 60 minute iron man match on a Goodman show real soon. Just wondering if this is the match right here.

This match isn't it, but I am intrigued by Scorpio going an hour. I'd like to see if he can keep it interesting for an hour.

My thoughts on some of the MOTYCs that have been spoken of...

Fit Finlay vs Mal Sanders
LDN Wrestling; 2012/xx/xx


Awesome old-school styled match. Mal worked great as heel, tearing Finlay's arm nearly off using illegal tactics and Finlay being the great old-school babyface he is, sold it like a champ. The first two rounds were full of limbwork and I found this boring, but it had a purpose and really added to the final rounds. Oh, the ending was also sick and well-thought out.

Rating: ***3/4

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Vordell Walker vs Too Cool Scorpio
PWE; 2012/01/28


I hate to be 'that guy' but I'm not a big fan of this Scorpio match. I really don't see how anyone can call it a MOTYC. The first ten minutes were dull as shit and the match only became slight enjoyable in the last few minutes. The venue and crowd really didn't help either. The match was held in small hall in front of say about 100 people, and 90% of them were silent throughout the match. The only good I can say about this bout is the stiffness and some of Scorpio's offense.

Rating: **1/2

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

PAC vs Rich Swann vs Brodie Lee vs Sami Callihan
2CW; 2012/01/21


Decent spotfest and nothing more for me. I enjoyed it, but there is going to be plenty of PWG spotties that will knock this out by the end of the year. Plus, the end was bleh.
