Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Man watch their match from last year if you enjoyed that one that much.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

The link I posted before still works. Either check my Megapost or search Suwama Sanada into Puro Media.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Morishima vs Marufuji NOAH 18/3
Not really a MOTYC but I thought it was really good despite it being quite sloppy in a few parts. I can't stand Marufuji matches for the most part but his offense worked here as it was the only way he could take the bigger man down. He still managed to annoy me with his over use of superkicks but his selling of Morishimas moves was good, especially the lariats. ***1/2

Also wish there was subtitles so I could know what Morishima said after the match.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I was somewhat interested in watching that, but what is the time length of the match? I saw Cagematch put it down as 12m but the video seems to be 30m long. Did you also manage to see the Akiyama match before it, by any chance? Just like to know if it's worth my time.

As for the superkick spamming, I've noticed quite a bit of NOAH (or perhaps, rather, their juniours) going towards more of an American Indy/Thigh-SLAPZ~! style of wrestling, tbh. Not that I'm particularly perturbed by it, though.

I've been giving this some thought, what would your reactions be to me starting a "2012 Honourable MotYC" thread? I'm guilty of this, too, but as a MotY thread I'd imagine it to rather be concise and limited to, say, a match that takes a slot in our Top 10 (or you'd think would remain in that position by year end). I'd just think it would keep this thread concise and easier for people to gauge what are each others' top matches - where we're currently at page 37 only a quarter way through the year. I realise we have separate Lucha/Puro/Indy threads for match recommendations but for the convenience of it I'd suggest a new thread, anyway.

That said, what is everyone's top 5/10, so far?

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Traumas I & II vs Cerebro Maligno & Rey Krimen-3/19/12 AULL. The Traumas put on a mat clinic and both their opponents especially Krimen went toe to toe with them. I hear too many people raving about the Briscoe's & Wrestling's Greatest Tag Teams being the best tag teams in the world which is Ludicrous! Right now the Traumas are the best tag team in the world and if you dont believe me watch the match!

Yeah the match was kept really short, around the 10 minute mark and it was a lot better for it. Having it go their usual main event length would have been bloody awful.

Marufuji was one of the first people I ever saw doing the superkick spamming thing, and as I was pretty young then I thought it was awesome lol. I remember him doing it back in like 2006 or something.

I'll get around to watching the tag later on, I'm hoping Akiyama and Go can carry it through.

Not sure on the thread tbh, could be useful but I would predict most people would just post in this one anyway with their lower end matches or whatever we want to call them.

Heres my list so far, I'll just give my top 10...

Kazuchika Okada vs Tetsuya Naito (NJPW 04/03) ****1/2
Daisuke Sekimoto vs Suwama (AJPW 02/01) ****1/4
Suwama vs Seiya Sanada 2/3 Falls (AJPW 04/03) ****1/4
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Minoru Suzuki (NJPW Wrestle Kingdom VI) ****1/4
Katsuhiko Nakajima vs SHINGO (D-Ring 11/2) ****1/4
Go Shiozaki vs Takeshi Morishima (NOAH 22/01) ****1/4
Finlay vs Tajiri (SMASH 19/02) ****
Daisuke Sekimoto & Yoshihito Sasaki vs Akebono & Ryuto Hama (BJW 02/01) ****
Bad Intentions vs Tenzan & Kojima (NJPW Wrestle Kingdom VI) ****
NRC vs Apollo 55 (NJPW The New Beginning) ****

So yeah, nothing from America that high up, but I do have the two Punk/Bryan matches and Hero/Elgin from Homecoming somewhere further down the list at **** too.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I still don't think I've watched anything from 2012 bar that one ROH iPPV which didn't have anything MOTYC worthy on it. Will probably check out all the shit Bubz posted later because our tastes are generally along the same lines.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

My MOTYCs (I make lists for each company, it's more fair and it's easier):

TNA: Austin Aries vs. Alex Shelley (Against All Odds) ***1/2
ROH: Team Ambition vs. Adam Cole & Eddie Edwards (10th Anniversary Event) ***3/4
WWE: not sure about this, Punk/Bryan I, I guess? ***3/4
EVOLVE: Chuck Taylor & Rich Swann vs. Super Smash Brothers (EVOLVE 10: A Tribute To The Arena) ****
DGUSA: PAC vs. Akira Tozawa (Open The Golden Gate) ****1/2
AJPW: Yuji Nagata vs. Masayuki Kono (3/20) ****1/4
NJPW: Kazuchika Okada vs. Tetsuya Naito (The New Beginning) ****3/4 (MOTY)
NOAH: Go Shiozaki vs. Takeshi Morishima (1/22) ****1/4
D-Ring: Katsuhiko Nakajima vs. SHINGO (2/11) ****1/4
SMASH: Fit Finlay vs. TAJIRI (SMASH 25) ****1/4
PWG: Kevin Steen, Super Dragon & Akira Tozawa vs. El Generico, PAC & Masato Yoshino (KRR III) ***3/4
CHIKARA: Mike Quackenbush vs. Green Ant (The Thirteenth Hat) ***1/4

Sadly, I don't follow BJW and CZW. Or European feds. Or smaller Indys.
