Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

The 4-Way of Doom was pretty impressive live and came across well on camera. I think I would go somewhere closer to Seabs in my rating but I have decided to not give ratings until I feel REAL solid on it. But the match was wall to wall action and I think it could have been just a little longer to give it a real fitting ending. 2CW has a way to end good matches with rollups instead of building to a satisfying ending. And like Rah I am super excited for 2CW's April events. There are two Briscoes matches that have a chance of being really solid.

Negro Casas vs Blue Panther - CMLL 3/2/12

This is hair vs hair, and it is awesome. Negro Casas looks like the best wrestler in the world here. Every time he would do something to Panther he would get this huge grin on his face. And he was violently tearing Panther apart. A lot of it was really stiff too, especially for lucha standards. Panther took it all really well too. His facial expressions were also great, he really sold the beatings he was taking with a look excruciating pain etched across his face. I can't really think of any criticism for this match. I could see somebody watching and complaining about the first two falls being short, but they made sense. Flash finishes are pretty great, especially flash armbars after you have had your ass handed to you by Negro Casas. The third fall is lengthy segment of the match where most of the meat is. And damn if that meat isn't tender, succulent, and juicy as fuck. The fujiwara armbar to floor was awesome, probably spot of the match, month, and maybe year. A whole lot of goodness here.

CMLL continues their roll as best promotion in the world by riding the coattails of the Casas/Panther feud. And Negro Casas is the best wrestler in the world right now.

52 year old Condescending Casas agrees with you, good sir.

That is the greatest picture I have ever seen, and I have seen a picture of a naked Scarlett Johansson.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Even as a massive puroresu dork, I fully endorse Condescending Casas's lack of regard for Sekimoto. I honestly have never understood why anyone thinks Sek is one of the best. His buddy Oka has surpassed him already working the same style better. *shrugs* Explanations/disagreements anyone?

Will you take an agreement? Because I pretty much agree wholeheartedly with that statement.

yeah, I'm gonna agree here, but Sekimoto was better first and came to the US so he's got more exposure, etc.

I don't watch lucha so I can't talk about Casas but meh, even though I love Yuji he ain't seeing Daisuke yet.

Daisuke is way more over so he's able to have more heated and "epic" battles with a variety of opponents. Yuji has improved a ton in the last 2 years thanks to working with Sekimoto and because he's been giving the chance to shine in their tags (It's more and more common seing Daisuke in the outside being an afterthought while Yuji does some really impressive shit in the ring). I can see the argument of Okabayashi being better in tags doing pretty much the same things Daisuke does (although I see it more as Daisuke letting him shine) and he showed last year he can be an amazing bully too, but he isn't THAT good in singles yet and still has trouble getting the crowd fully behind him.

Oka is nowhere near having a run like Daisuke did in 2010' with the KO-D Title, tagging with Yoshihito, raping Chikara's roster, etc. And he still has ways to go before he has a red hot Korakuen behind him in an inter promotional battle.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

MAS QUE UNA PASION, UN SENTIMIENTO

I agree with this. I think Okabayashi is great but Sekimoto is just that much better. Sekimoto is one of, if not my favourite, guy to watch in Japan at the minute.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Jun Akiyama vs Takao Omori - Triple Crown Championship - AJPW 03.02.2012
I'm confident at this point I could watch the worst wrestlers ever have a horrible match for 20 minutes and as long as the crowd were as hot as they were for this I'd still enjoy the fuck out of it. Good match made really good by a super K.Hall crowd. 1st half of the match showed loads of promise and started off great but the middle portion was a step down and then the finishing run sucked so it started off with the potential to be great but fell flat in the end. Thanks to the crowd though it was still very good. Transition sequence on the mats from the start to Jun's control segment working the arm was super. Omori took some super bumps, especially the dive onto the rail. Set the arm work up really well and then Akiyama went for it. It ended up just being something for them to do in the middle portion though and allowed Akiyama to work a slower pace. The workover was too heavy on "lock in an arm submission and keep him in it for a few minutes so I can rest". Omori was great in the submissions but he really spent too long in holds that should be more effective over that amount of time. No real payoff to the arm work once they finished with that portion of the match either which was lame. Some really terrible stuff in the last 5 or whatever minutes. Omori taking an exploder suplex and popping right back up into another only to kick out and wrestle for another 5 odd minutes was shitty. Would have made a great spot to finish on though with Omori firing up one last time only to get caught straight in another exploder. The combo of stiff knee strikes sucked and shouldn't have just lead to yet another 2 count. It's not like Omori got back up and started to get his own shit in but it didn't feel rewarding and necessary. Finish looked botched too which I guess meant they had more spots to run through.
