Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

People who think Finlay is not good are what's wrong with today's fans. One of the most underrated in-ring generals and storytellers ever. Brock Lesnar is not "legit", Fit Finlay is. Oh, and I'm very surprised that people didn't recognize the storytelling in Finlay/Callihan III. Do you know anything about Sami's character in DGUSA/EVOLVE?

Just to clear things up, Finlay is good but I thought the match was incredibly meh.

I'm a huge Finlay mark but that's coming off as extremely elitist. I would majorly facepalm if someone said that Davey Richards was better than Finlay but at the end of the day it's all subjective. I can totally see how people may find Finlay boring due to the spot-heavy nature of the indies today, but even if I don't agree with that statement, I don't think their opinion is wrong either.

This reminds of a YouTuber who said that Meltzer giving Richards/Elgin 5 stars would harm the future of wrestling. His theory would be that aspiring wrestlers would try to emulate that match. For every one person may of thought that match wasn't that great, there are 10 others that loved the match.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Since when is **3/4 a MOTYC? Anyway , anyone have a download link for Finlay/Callihan? Hyped as hell to watch it/ I like Finlay a lot but I do think some people just like his matches and overrate them for the sake of it being Finlay. Him vs Steen at BOLA being the best example. The match was pretty poor for what it was and got rave reviews from some people. If anyone else other then Finlay had the exact same match with Steen , it probably would of been shit on for the most part.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Usually when one person claims that a match eg Roode/Storm is a MOTY, Others post there thoughts and ratings after it. Or at least thats what I'm assuming he was doing.

Yes... He said it was a MOTYC, and didn't rated it. So i did it (my opinion, maybe it was better for other guys). Didn't know it's wrong, next time i wouldn't do it..

Nah, Finlay is only one example. The other one is Eddie Kingston. You will actually find some people from this section telling you he's not even a wrestler(!). There is more and more people who don't understand the art that is storytelling, and different forms of it.

Btw, the everyday talk about "opinions and subjectivity" is overrated anyway.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Finlay owns, but I didn;t like the first Finaly/Callihan match really, thought it was just ok. I thought the Steen match was a ton better than it tbh. Looking forward to seeing if their rematch in EVOLVE is more to my liking.
