I thoroughly enjoy any match where I get to see Hulk kick people and do Mouse, so this was no exception. His strikes are uber awesome, he can kick you from any position imaginable. And when you add the BITW candidate Tozawa, crazy Susumu and the underrated KAGEORA, with the tag titles on the line - you get nothing but the awesomeness. The storytelling is very simple here. You got the two evenly matched teams who hate each other and want to win the match at any cost. Which leads us to one helluva athletic rush hour with smashing, decapitating moves and with incredible nearfalls and great drama. My #2 for Puro so far, right behind Okada/Naito. Fucking incredible.
Rating: ****3/4
Yes! In fact, Infinity 252 is the best episode of regular tv I've seen from any promotion this year. It revolves around establishing all-new factions, so it's a great jump-on point for new or returning fans, and the matches are superb:

Doi vs. Ricochet ***1/2
Mochizuki, Fuji & Gamma vs Horiguchi, Saito & Kanda ****
Hulk & Tozawa vs The Jimmys ****1/2
Cima vs Pac ****

Awesome show.

Yes, it was an outstanding edition. Sure, they clipped the matches, but you barely even notice it during the action. And once again I gotta express my love for the Blankey/Jimmyz tag match. Tag MOTY, easily.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Didn't think much to Finlay/Calihan tbh. First match was great, and a top 5 MOTY for me, and ****. This one had it moments, and I'd still give it around ***1/4, but thought it got a little dull in the middle. How is their match from... Germany (forgot the promotion lol)? Only asking because the commentators bring it up during this one lol.

It happened in wXw, and I think it's not out yet.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Took Highspots awhile, but they finally have the April DVD Sampler.

Well worth the wait, as this looks like the best one they have had in months.

1. ECW FanCam (11-20-98)
2. PWS Freshman Phenom
3. Nick Dinsmore Shoot Interview
4. WSU - Push It To The Limit
5. PWG - DDT 2009
6. CZW - Best of the Best 2
7. DGUSA - Fearless 2011
8. DDP WrestleReunion Shoot
9. FIP Melbourne Meltdown (5-26-07)
10. TNA Final Resolution 2006

You can get more info (and even all the match listings) from this link.

Obvious gold like PWG DDT 2009 and DGUSA Fearless 2011, and potential gems like the ECW fancam show that has Jerry Lynn vs RVD, in the ninties they always delivered!

I'm glad they finally put a big CZW show on there. Even those who don't like CZW know that the yearly Best of the Best is really when CZW brings their "A" game. I haven't seen it, but on BotB 10 a commentator listed all the previous winners, so I have an idea, but not positive, which will add to the fun of watching the show.

The only dvd I already have is the TNA one. It's a good show though, Daniels vs Joe is as great as you would assume. It's also Sting's first match in TNA and the crowd reaction is amazing.

I'm hoping I can spare the money for it, it was either Nov or Dec that I really wanted to buy, but never made the effort to do it, and then each month afterward would have a few decent to good dvds, but then a ton of crap. This month is very well balanced.

Speaking of which, how would I "jump on" if I wanted to? As in watch on a regular basis?

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Dave Finlay -vs- Sami Callihan (EVOLVE 11 in Canada; 2012-04-13)

This is easily the best indie match of the year so far. Two guys that are currently the best guys working the indies do all the things that make them better than all the other schmucks working the same scene. They didn't try to go a hundred miles an hour for the sake of having a "this is awesome" chant (even though they did get one, ugh, but at least it deserved it,) they didn't trade a bunch of finishers, and they sold everything like they should have. They worked very stiff. Finlay chunked Sami into the ropes on his slams, which make them look twice as nasty. He slammed Sami's leg into the ringpost the way that would hyperextend his leg. The hardway headbutt was vicious and delicious. All the unique things these guys do really set them apart, and it led to them having the best match not involving a guy named Negro Casas this year.

Google 'open the dragon gate' & for in-depth reviews of the shows try 'garoon gate'.

Yeah, I simply LOVE that match. The finishing stretch was fucking insane. Tag MOTY, by far.
