Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Eh, I just joined this board, and mainly just to read through stuff in this section, but stuff in those writeups seemed kind of hyperbolic and self contradicting to me. Won't do it again.

If you're talking about Kingston staggering around, the thing is he has a history of knee problems, and he's been playing that into his matches for ages at this point. They even pointed it out on commentary in that match. I guess Kingston working the match around selling his hand after backfisting the ring post and getting it worked over until his comeback isn't the ideal introduction to him. I dunno.

Character dynamics in Generico vs Del Rey were very easy to understand I thought. It wasn't "scrapping character work" as much as Generico was conflicted and had reached that point where he lost his hesitance. Also, it was about as "reliant on near-falls" as every other Generico match, so that seems kind of mind boggling to me if you're a huge Generico fan.

Cactus, you gotta watch Kingston vs. Brodie Lee, much better than Kinsgton vs. Steen.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah Pun/Kane was really good. Thought it was on the same level or close to the Henry matches. Orton/Sheamus was way too long and felt dragged out because the crowd were dead for it.

Hmmm. A tidy *** match with a few exciting exchanges & a painful looking catch fail on Kidd's moonsault to the floor. Any particular reason you were so eager to share?

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah it felt like a PPV match. But i really enjoyed Orton's work on Sheamus's hand (even sheamus screwed this up with a silly comeback) and the match itself was just great. One of my fav TV matches of the year so far..
EDIT: i'm a big fan of Kidd-Henning's feud and imo that match was really great lol

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Punk/Kane was great, not on the level of the Henry matches but similar and really good.

I love how they are really selling Bryan as the best submission wrestler in companys history. Really gives him that edge and the way he's been performing he's coming off like I always wanted him to in the company, as a little vicious bastard who will just punish his opponents in the ring. The rib work on Punk in the match and the attack afterwards as well as Bryan talking about it being a target automatically sets up a story to be told in their match on Sunday, and if they deliver like we all know they can, we could be looking at a top end MOTYC. Can't wait for the match now.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

Yeah I only saw a little of Kane/Punk but it had to be the best Kane match I've ever seen. Also liked how when Kane started to work Punk's mid section/ribs Cole said something like "You have a bunch of submissions that work that area right?" and Bryan was like "I sure do."


You know you remember this.

CM Punk vs Kane- *** 1/2

Randy Orton vs Sheamus- ****

I was pleasantly surprised with both matches as I wasn't expecting either to be as good as they were.

Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread

I re-watched both Davey vs Elgin and Steen matches, and I'm taking down my rating for Davey/Steen. I still really liked it, but it wasn't near the level I thought it was on initial watch. I'm going with **** now.

Davey/Elgin was just as great as I first thought though. This is my US MOTY so far and easily the Indy MOTY. ****1/4
