Richards vs Elgin was incredible. I'm watched more wrestling than almost anyone on the planet and all I gotta say -- no words can describe it. Go and watch it.

Really enjoyed Rock vs Cena too at Mania.

5 great matches of the mania weekend, didn't like Mania too much, still had fun with it, only rated Jericho/Punk and Triple HHH/Undertaker around 4 starts, not MOTYC's

Marking the f*ck out for:
Akira Tozawa, Shinsuke Nakamura, Dolph Ziggler, AJ Styles, Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan, Kassius Ohno, YAMATO, El Generico.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Nothing on Wrestlemania touched Yoshihito vs Daisuke but Taker vs HHH and Punk vs Jericho deserve a mention on this thread.

The ME was pretty damn fun and I was surprised at the ending so that's a plus.

Nothing on Wrestlemania touched anything. The best match of the night was about ***¾

this. was a garbage match much like last years. and much like last years after the recency bias goes away people will come down with their ratings realizing it wasn't good at all.

punk/jericho was pretty damn good but ruined by the dq stip.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

missed the end of Punk/Jericho, thought it started real slow but got pretty good with Jericho's back work and some counters were pretty nice.

thought HHH/Taker would be great, really enjoyed their match last year, but thought this was really bad. missed a few minutes in the... middle? was there a middle? dunno. it had parts of a good story, but never really put it together.

Davey Richards vs Michael Elgin
ROH Showdown in the Sun Night 2; 2012/03/31

It has it's flaws and I think Meltzer giving it the full five stars is fucking insane, but considering this match has two guys that I don't care about at all and I ended up loving near enough every second of the match, that's got to be enough to get a nomination. They tried to play up Elgin's size and strength against the smaller size of Richards. There was sick moment whether or not Davey could hit a top rope suplex because of the sheer size of Elgin, this would of been a really cool moment if you know... DAVEY DIDN'T FUCKING RELEASE GERMAN ELGIN WITH EASE FIVE MINUTES EARLIER! Ergh. Aside from that and your typical ROH main event finishing stretch no-selling and near-falls overkill, that's all the bad stuff I can say about this match. The match was filled with emotion, mostly thanks to commentator Nigel McGuinness really getting into the match and rooting for Elgin which really set the mood for plenty of high-stake spots and awesome (and some bad) near-falls. US MOTY behind Punk/Jericho.

Rating: ****1/4
