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.
Everyone uses it more of a recommend great matches from 2012 thread rather than legit MOTYC's anyway so no need for another thread which would basically be the same.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I really don't see the appeal in that Naito vs Okada match. Why did you all enjoy it so much?

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Because it had a great story, awesome leg work, awesome selling, an incredible finishing stetch and two great performances, IMO the best performance in either guys career. It was just a brilliant match and would be in my top 5 at least from last year too let alone the first quater of this year.

SUWAMA vs. Seiya Sanada (AJPW, 3/4/2012)

Great 2/3 falls match. The storytelling was very nice with SUWAMA being a tough badass against young Sanada. This was basically 25 minutes of SUWAMA making the man out of him, and it worked perfectly. Very effective storytelling, with great wrestling from both, especially from SUWAMA. Sanada's underdog sequences were good too. God I love SUWAMA, he's so fucking awesome, he just keeps getting better and better. Very smart wrestler, easily one of the BITW currently. Plus, he reminds me on Takayama - another huge plus in my book. Great match, but not "epic" enough to reach the ****+ territory.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Kevin Steen vs Jimmy jacobs ROH 10th anniversary
***1/2
A really fun little brawl I could get behind. The story telling in this only added alot more meaning to this then just a wild match.

O'Reilly & Richards vs Cole & Edwards
****
This match..just WOW. I expected a typical Eddie vs Davey style match with Cole and Kyle only geting in some minor offense but I was wrong. Davey and Eddie took a backseat to their rawr fighting spirit style to toss out some great wrestling and Cole and Kyle stepd it up big time and killed it with just about everything they pulled out and came off looking like two of the fastest rising stars in wrestling.

Since DG doesn't get much love, I'll throw out a match for once.

I suppose so; perhaps I'm just used to how other boards structure their Best Ofs.

No biggie at all, I just wondered where the matches everyone recommends ends up on their lists. Though now that JoeRulz and Bubz stated their top matches I can more or less work on that from here on out in future recommendations.

I'll put in my Top 10 later tonight. I have the AJPW 20/03/2012 show to go through and I have a feeling one or two matches may just squeeze their way in there.

I thought this was awful tbh. I just wanted it to end. I wasn't a fan of their match last year either though wich a lot of people liked a lot.

Yeah I'm definitely hoping the cage deathmatch delivers if thats the show it's on.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yuji Nagata vs. Masayuki Kono (AJPW, 3/20/2012)

One of the stiffest matches I've ever seen. It was a simple, yet super effective Cage Match. The story was told through sick, stiff and decapitating blows. Kono is usually average, but he brought his A-game for this match. Nagata is great, of course, and his comeback near the end was well done. I liked the drama in the end, but it was not about whos's gonna win, it was about how much punishment can Kono take. This was excellent, and my new All Japan MOTY.
