Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Someone once said Joey Styles was more important and left a greater legacy on the business than Jerry Lawler. May have been one of the very few times I was left speechless at the ignorance and stupidity I was reading. Hell I felt like I lost some of my intelligence just by reading that drivel.

Wow. I kind of feel empty inside. I shouldn't have come to this thread. My heart hurts.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

It's scary to think how many people just know Lawler as the king of bad puns and old jokes.

It'd be like just knowing JR for his BBQ!

BTW, speaking of the wonderful angle there's a great article covering it as its now in its 30th anniversary: http://edition.cnn.com/2012/04/07/us...html?hpt=hp_c1

Awesome read.
Cheers, SC. That was a great read. Just confirms what we already know - he may have wrestled only 1 or 2 matches, was in the business for barely a year, and yet Andy Kaufman is the greatest heel of all time.



On a subjective level of course

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

He's the heel every snivelling coward/obnoxious douche aims to be. He just had to speak and people wanted him to be murdered before their eyes. It didn't matter whether he was made to look great or the biggest pussy on the planet, the man's mannerisms, personality and voice just made everyone hate him and allowed him to make an angle based around wrestling women feel less ridiculous than it had any right to be.

The fact he and Lawler managed to work as many people into believing it was real and took a regional feud onto Late night with Letterman and made the feud mainstream in under 10 minutes just speaks volumes about its greatness. And of course, THAT SLAP.







Long Live Kaufman!!!







*and Lawler..

I know I did. I'm actually shocked that post created all that useless discussion, lol.

But IMO, Sekimoto's performance in this is easily the best individual performance of the year by far, and it's gonna' take something incredible to top it.
I didn't think Yoshihito's selling was lacking (I guess you could make a case when he did the Argentine Back Breaker, but that's being way too nickpicky imo). The whole point of the match was him being able to overcome The Ace and he did it in a pretty logical way for puroresu standards imo.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I barely have any free time recently, but I managed to watch Callihan/Sasaki at least, and it was really fucking great. Great psychological tests of strength, great storytelling told through some really stiff chops and strikes. These guys are awesome, especially Sasaki. Callihan is great as usual too, he has that swag and Japs like him. Great match, 11 minutes of awesome. With more time, it could've been a legit MOTYC. ***1/2

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Segunda Caida is some sort of Death Valley Driver Review/Segunda Caida blog tribute message board account or the real deal?

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

The Segunda Caida blog was something I read frequently before I joined, I wanted a decent name and being a lazy uncreative shit that popped into my head. I'm also a pretty big Lucha fan and 'segunda caida' is Mexican for 2nd fall so yeah, I'm not one of the contributors to the blog or anything.
