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.
