Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
Punk vs. Bryan was amazing. at least ****1/2. For nerds like me, the psychology there is absolutely insane... Punk gets desperate late and starts borrowing spots from Nigel FUCKING McGuinness to try and beat Bryan, and even starts using his ROH catchphrases - I have til 5! - to try and piss him off. I just can't believe they let it end clean. This was basically the exact same match they would have had in ROH (and maybe paced better) except there were less stiff strikes - I see the Cattle Mutilation and Elbow Barrage didn't make it to WWE with Dragon. It sets up a rematch, and if that goes this length with a long finishing stretch and a clean finish you'll be looking at one of the best matches in company history.
