Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yessssss, BJW talk for an entire page.

I enjoyed Sasaki/Callihan, thought they really did a great job bringing the hate, I remember watching it after watch Rock vs Cena and wishing they had brought an ounce of what Callihan/Sasaki were doing.

Nothing amazing, but a fun match. Liked it more than Bones/Sekimoto and still havn't got around to watching the final and I'm thinking that tag team match will also been watching.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Watched my first BJW match yesterday and first time I've seen Seikimoto and Sasaki. That match from 3/26 really had me sucked in. Great story there. I'd put this as the second most enjoyable match I've seen this year behind Brock/Cena.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I loved Sami/Sasaki from semi-finals. Great match (***3/4), with the most simple and effective storytelling in pro wrestling: two dudes knocking the shit out of each other.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

RAW - 01-30-2012 - CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan ****
Smackdown - 02-21-2012 - Daniel Bryan vs CM Punk ***1/2
RAW - 02-27-2012 - CM Punk vs Daniel Bryan ***

Just went back and reviewed the Champion vs. Champion Series from earlier this year as kind of a primer for their title bout at Over the Limit. These two were absolutely born to wrestle each other. The first match gets the most time and is probably pretty comparable to what we'll get on pay per view, albeit with a more heat since the title will be on the line in the main event of the big monthly show. Anyway, the 1/30/12 opener is a really well rounded performance from both guys and really only suffers when a clean ending is sacrificed to make way for the Punk-Jericho feud. The two rematches also feature top performances, but are ultimately crushed under the weight of the WrestleMania build-up and the GM feud. So the groundwork is there, all they have to do is let these guys work for 20 minutes without interference and it should be a MOTYC. As it stands, this served more as a plot device to further other angles, with the first meeting slightly standing out as a really good match. And now I cannot wait for Over the Limit.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Watched the Ikkitousen this afternoon.

Once again, not that impressed with Sekimoto. He's fun at doing his few brutal moves over and over, but I hate how he keeps reverting to a bland wrestler just standing around in-between the moves. When he slaps on a Boston Crab he makes his mean face and looks scary; seconds later he's got indy-face like he's trying to remember what comes next or where the camera is. I know I'm spoiled watching dudes like Kawada and Kobashi who had some of the best facial expressions ever and wouldn't break character if they broke an arm, but it's annoyed me about him for years.

In the finals with Sasaki it stood out worse since the first half was Sekimoto plodding around and hitting him until he finally fired up. Sasaki, on the other hand, was good at the fire and at looking lost (in a good way) when he got whooped. My favorite bit was Sekimoto refusing to take the spear and just trying to choke him out. I wish I got that boss-vibe from him more.

Match of the tournament for me was Callihan/Sasaki. Sasaki was just as passionate as he was in the finals, only more rested and playing a more even striking match, while Callihan was a much expressive opponent. My favorite of the BJW "hit dudes until they stop getting up" style matches I've seen recently. It's almost like they enjoyed looking terrified mid-bump.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I think I've seen like three matches I'd throw in the MOTYC range this year: Bryan/Sheamus, Steen/Generico, Richards/Elgin, in that order. Need to watch Lesnar/Cena and a fuckton of BJW apparently. Also the PWG shows because I know I'll find some tag match everyone else ignores and give it ****1/2 or something.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yoshihito Sasaki vs Big Van Walter - BJW 5/5 "Endless Survivor"

Another great underdog performance by Yoshihito, and Walter did his part beating the shit out of Sasaki. Before the final sequence there was a point were they traded an unnecessary amount of false finishes for my liking but it wasn't that big of a deal. At least they were able to bring some real life to the Yokohama crowd near the end. It's totally worth a look but it's only a borderline MOTYC, imo.

Back.To Back.TO BACK.
