6. CM Punk Vs. Chris Jericho - Wrestlemania
7. El Generico & Harashima Vs. Kenny Omega & KUDO - DDT
8. Daniel Bryan Vs. CM Punk - Live Smackdown (Restart-Mania, but they worked harder every time)
9. Kenny Omega Vs. Hiroshi Yamato - AJPW 1/3
10. Low Ki Vs. El Generico - EVOLVE

My list is very incomplete, though. I'm behind on ROH, NJPW, BJW, AJPW and Dragon Gate. I'd imagine after I hit Okada/Naito and Ikkitousen the list would shift up a lot. Mostly been watching 90's Kawada and Kobashi this year, which... would make up the Real Top 10, but not the Happened in 2012 Top 10.

After the tepid reaction, I was surprised how much I liked Ki/Generico. Ki has been guzzling opponents in shorter matches, so Generico going even with him in the beginning, and actually getting the upperhand a few times in grappling was surprising. They both have awesome timing and could have one of those 25-minute world-beater matches, but this was something subtler. I wound up getting into it a lot more than Finlay and Callihan's finisher-fest later, which was still fun.

I'm too tired to write even a short review. But this was very entertaining. Yuji was a fucking beast once again and Walter brought the stiffness.
Watching this right now... The whole show is awesome and entertaining, actually. Damn, is Big Japan ubercool or what?!

My top 10 for the year seems a little different:

1. Davey Richards vs Michael Elgin - ROH Showdown in the Sun Night 2 - ****3/4

2. Triple H vs The Undertaker - WWE Wrestlemania XXVIII - ****1/2

3. Chuck Taylor & Johnny Gargano vs Ricochet & Masato Yoshino - DGUSA Open the Ultimate Gate 2012 - ****1/4

4. CM Punk vs Chris Jericho [Chicago Street Fight] - WWE Extreme Rules - ****1/4

5. John Cena vs Brock Lesnar [Extreme Rules Match] - WWE Extreme Rules - ****1/4

6. CM Punk vs Chris Jericho - WWE Wrestlemania XXVIII - ****1/4

7. Kevin Steen vs El Generico [La Revancha] - ROH Showdown in the Sun Night 1 - ****1/4

8. Adam Cole & Eddie Edwards vs Kyle O'Reilly & Davey Richards - ROH 10th Anniversary - ****1/4

9. The Rock vs John Cena - WWE Wrestlemania XXVIII - ****

10. Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus - WWE Extreme Rules - ****


I definitely need to rewatch Bryan/Sheamus as i haven't gone as high as others at all even though I'm a massive D-Bryan fan so I may have been not fully into it when watching the first time. I also may rewatch the ROH 10th Anniversary match; no one else seems to be giving it the love I gave it, so maybe I was on something. From what I recall, it did a good job of elevating O' Reilly and Cole which I was very happy to see, but apart from that I can't quite remember why I originally rated it so highly!

Finally watched Punk/Jericho from Extreme Rules and I loved it. What I did see when I watched it live on tv (the middle stretch) I thought was a lot better this time around, probably because of actually seeing the start and end of the match lol. Great, great brawl of a match that was long but so easy to watch. Great spots including the elbow through the table, code breaker with the chair and all the weapon shots looked great too. I preffered it to their WM match by quite a bit actually. I loved everything in here including Punk almost losing his balance on the top rope before the elbow, it really sold the effects of the match. Awesome stuff. ****1/4

I also re-watched Bryan/Sheamus again and I liked that even more this time. Still have it rated at ****1/4, but now at the higher end of that rating. Bryan is the man.

Brock/Cena would probably be in the **** range if I were to rate it match wise, but as a sheer spectacle of a match, nothing comes close, no not even Taker/HHH. Incredible to watch. In the context of the match I still think the finish was fine and worked well too. Great PPV.

Oh and this would be my top 10 btw. Naito/Okada is pretty much a lock for number 1 at this point, but everything after in the ****1/4 range isn't really in a specific order...

Kazuchika Okada vs Tetsuya Naito (NJPW 04/03) ****1/2
Daisuke Sekimoto vs Suwama (AJPW 02/01) ****1/4
Daniel Bryan vs Sheamus (WWE Extreme Rules) ****1/4
Davey Richards vs Michael Elgin (ROH SITS Night Two) ****1/4
Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Minoru Suzuki (NJPW Wrestle Kingdom VI) ****1/4
Katsuhiko Nakajima vs SHINGO (D-Ring 11/02) ****1/4
Go Shiozaki vs Takeshi Morishima (NOAH 22/01) ****1/4
CM Punk vs Chris Jericho (WWE Extreme Rules) ****1/4
Daisuke Sekimoto vs Yoshihito Sasaki (BJW 26/3) ****1/4
Suwama vs Seiya Sanada 2/3 Falls (AJPW 04/03) ****1/4

I hate to break it to you my friend but your reaction to the beating that Cena took is a likely sign that you do not have a soul. I hate being the one to break it to you and anyone else but if there wasn't a part of you pulling for Cena and hoping he could somehow stop Brock the only explanation I can come up with is you've managed to let your hate totally blind you or you lack a soul.

Daisuke Sekimoto & Yuji Okabayashi vs. Suwama & Takumi Soya - All Japan, 3/20

I've seen people on this board complain about Davey Richards following up a superplex with an ankle lock. I've seen people on this board complain about Tetsuya Naitō not following through on his early-match legwork (whatever that means). I've seen people on this board complain about Sami Callihan doing pretty much everything Sami Callihan does. And yet I have never seen anybody on this board complaining about the spot where Sekimoto German suplexes Okabayashi, who in turn German suplexes their opponent. Seriously, what the f##k? That spot is stupider than all of the aforementioned stuff combined. It was fun and kinda cool the first time I saw them do it, but it's not something you can believably work into your matches on a recurring basis. It makes the 2011 American Wolves trading stereo suplexes with their opponents look natural and logical.

With that said, this was a damn good match. It's unbelievable how good Soya is for his experience level; making him a player in the All Japan/Big Japan feud has done wonders to freshen up something that had become incredibly stale and repetitive by the fourth Sanada & (Manabu) Soya/Sekimoto & Okabayashi match. And of course, gotta give props to the ridiculously hot crowd, almost always the MVP of any Japanese interpromotional match. Considering how little of a crap I can bring myself to give about Big Japan, they continue even a year later to provide some of the best and hottest matches in All Japan, despite the continued presence of my least favorite spot in wrestling today. ***

My favorite match of the year and I was rooting for Lesnar the whole time. Always have enjoyed the monster beating up the top good guy, though. It gave me warm Vader tingles.

Yeah, I said it. Warm Vader tingles.

Thanks for clarification. I guess I am the lovechild of Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards.
