Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I really enjoyed Evolve 13, but am surprised people would say so many of the matches are MOTYC. Particularly, I don't see what's special about Fox/Gargano. Folks who are rating it high - can you say what you loved about it?

Davis/Ki I dug greatly. It was Ki's first real challenge in the promotion, as he was unable to bully the heavyweight with technique or striking. The Spinebuster counter to the cartwheel was the coolest thing in any Evolve match that weekend. Ki trying to dominate through his traditional standing game and failing was great, especially for how he sold the frustration, and Davis trying to make the most of the opportunity against him. It's rare that a bigger guy can be such a compelling underdog in wrestling these days.

Did you not see Chuck Taylor debut his new move?!
Also Fox hitting his diving senton over the ladder was my fav.

Austin Aries vs. Bully Ray - TNA Sacrifice ***3/4

What a brutal beating Aries took. The action wasn't nearly as entertaining as Brock-Cena but the sick bump to the floor and those nasty chops made this something to watch. I really liked to build-up and story behind this, but Bubba really doesn't have the chops to go out there and put on a classic at this point. A few nice spots thrown in like the one man 3D and Bully actually kicking out of the brainbuster. I checked out Sacrifice just for this match and I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. This was a hell of a beating and makes me want to see more of Aries in TNA.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I think it's way better than Aries''s match with Shelley which I just can't seem to get into to save me life.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Dean Allmark & James Mason vs Mark Haskins & Doug Williams - ASW:UK 26.02.2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l2VeV...7&feature=plcp

Really good tag match. Allmark and Mason are super as per. Naturally gifted babyface workers and terrific crowd workers too. Haskins is a great douchey heel and Williams is ok too. Finish rocks post Mason getting caught up in the ropes and selling it like the pro he is.


****

Dean Allmark & James Mason vs Rampage Brown & Robbie Dynamite - ASW:UK 17.03.2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xx_cz...6&feature=plcp

Even better than the above tag. Allmark is a really terrific babyface, one of the best around right now. Incredibly sound technically, crisp as fuck with his moves, top notch selling and a terrific crowd worker too. Mason is every bit as good too. Strong face/heel dynamic again in this tag, probably even better. Rampage is surprisingly good for a guy with his build. Finish rocked as per with ASW:UK finishes.


****1/4

Dean Allmark vs Nathan Cruz - ASW:UK 24.03.2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9Umg...5&feature=plcp

The best of the Allmark matches from 2012 so far imo. Cruz is a great stoogey heel but he's also really sound technically so he has no problem hanging with Allmark in that sense. Allmark is terrific, duh. Super chemistry between the two. Allmark's shine at the start was really well worked and wasn't his standard stuff either. Cruz sells and stooges around off really well too which only makes it better. Picks up to another level come the end as well. All the matches from this year on Deano's youtube page are really good. You can get their from any of the links assuming you're not an idiot.


****1/4

Vordell Walker vs Jon Davis - PWX 28.04.2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8tw7U5t3lI

I always liked Jon Davis even when he wasn't having good matches. Well THIS, this is great. Davis is really good on the mat and chain wrestling with Walker. Was really nice to see more of that side from him rather than just being a powerhouse. Walker's really good in that sense too and they just focus on having a great little wrestling match and totally succeed at it. Anyone who like the Walker/Scorpio match should really like this and anyone who didn't like it should still really like it. Basically everyone should like it so everyone should watch it.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I've so much to catch up on since my exams are finished. Mostly WWE to catch up on , I'll more than likely watch the Evolve shows first as Callihan/Generico and Finlay/Davis sound awesome. Anything else worth watching from last month? I'll probably give Aries/Ray a watch too.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

HHH/Taker, Lesnar/Cena, and Richards vs. Elgin are more than worthy of a watch.

Great athletic sprint with Fox going for broke, which makes perfect since considering he already wrestled earlier in the night. Sure, you could point to and say that there was a lack of cohesive story, but done right and it can tell a story in itself. This was trading big moves and leaving it all in the ring done right.

Also, I wouldn't say it was a MOTYC. Thought this thread had been established as more of a go to for matches you need to see, which it certainly is.
