Agreed.

These days I can hardly be bothered to watch wrestling I'll get part way through an event and stop or take a whole day to watch a match.

But when it comes to BJW I'm glued to the screen. It's one of the easiest companies to watch and the mix of good wrestling and great deathmatch is almost perfect.

Not to mention Sekimoto & Okabayshi tearing it up.



Also..... Brahmans!

Brahman's are mega bad asses. Let's hope the BJW/All Japan feud continues throughout 2012.

Zero-1 Championship 1/1/12
Kohei Sato(c) vs. Daisuke Sekimoto

This was awesome. Sekimoto gets his ass handed to him early on by taking a brutal bump onto a pile of chairs. This control segment by Sato was so great because it just looked so painful, his strikes were stiff and threw out some nice power moves. There was this odd segment where Sekimoto got in some offense but he kept it slow which I wasn't expecting. Later on we got that awesome comeback that I was expecting from him. Good finishing stretch too with a few nice nearfalls and more brutal strikes.

Sekimoto was awesome here. He came across as a total badass that took all sorts of punishment before he went down for the count. And because Sato managed to survive with his title he ended up looking great. I'm hoping they have a rematch down the road very soon. First Zero-1 match that I've ever seen and I have to say that it was really really good.
****



So I'm trying to make an informed decision on what gets my MOTY this year and I'll try to do a write up for anything that I give over 4*s. Wrestle Kingdom had a few that I gave ***3/4 but that was the highest so I didn't include any of them in here.

Finally finished watchin Wrestle Kingdom. Good stuff, about what I expect from a Tokyo Dome show.

So as it stands, my top matches of 2012 are:

Shinsuke & Yano vs Go & Fuji - This match was the best WK bout and really fun to watch despite a lack of Shiozaki lariats.

Brodus Clay vs Curt Hawkins - The most entertaining segment in pro wrestling so far this year.

Neither should be considered a match of the year by any stretch, just my picks at less than two weeks into the new year.

Suwama vs Daisuke Sekimoto - AJPW 02.01.2012
Fuck this was really good. Really glad that the crowd got behind Daisuke as they did and got behind everything they were doing. It's no coincidence that the crowd was hot for it though because of the excellent way in which they worked the match. Wonderful face/heel dynamic and whenever you have one guy beating another guy who's selling for an extended amount of time the crowd are always gonna get into eventually, especially when that segment is 100% one sided and the babyface gets no offence in unlike in Indy matches when they can't go 5 minutes without having a comeback. This is basically what you get when you take the Sato match from the day before and swap him with a much better worker in Suwama. Suwama's really turning into one of the best heavyweight workers going now and it's no coincidence at all that he keeps popping up in great matches. I love high profile matches where you can keep the established hierachy in place put still put over the lower card.

****1/4
