Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Kenny Omega vs. Kushida (NJPW BoSJ, 6/6): So yeah, this tournament hasn't exactly set the world on fire. The one upside of running so many sub-10 minute matches with simple finishes is that when you finally give a couple of guys proper time & near-falls to play with, the fans lap it up. It also helps that Korakuen loves Omega & Kushida. ***3/4

Oh shoot. KUSHIDA getting another break out match vs the other DDT faithful. Looking forward to that. Really, really liked his Junior Championship match last year vs Ibushi. KUSHIDA never gets much time to show what he has unfortunately.

Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Johnny Moss(WXW 16 Carat Gold Tournament Night 1):***3/4
I don't know what it was about this match but I really dug it. Don't think I've seen anyone talk about it which is a bit of a shame I think. I wish there were more ZSJ matches from 2013 lurking on the internet. This match was 20+ minutes and at points certainly felt the length but there was enough good stuff in this match that I had to recommend. Moss looked like a tank of man who used his power to break ZSJ's submissions at points or to pick ZSJ off the ground from an armbar attempt. Moss did that second one quite a bit which was fine. It was the dynamic they had set up. Moss was powerful and could throw around ZSJ but also use the power in the grappling game. ZSJ was an assassin of sorts. He'd take a beating and a half but give him an inch of daylight and he'd either kick your head off or snap your arm in two. That's perfectly sold at one point in particular where Moss has got a clear advantage and ZSJ is on the ground groggy as could be but Moss still walks towards ZSJ as if he is walking towards a honey badger and steps on limbs to make sure those don't come flying at him before going back to grappling. OH, and I'm a big fan of tope sprees by wrestler A ending with wrestler B splatting wrestler A all over the floor. ZSJ goes splat. The very ending is crap which is sad since it was set up well but gets it knocked down a bit in my eyes. And if that doesn't knock it down for others the earlier portions of the match relegated to Moss torturing ZSJ will probably come off boring.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Any ZSJ match has me excited. Anything else good from the 16 Carat Gold? How was Tommy End/Ricochet?

Random Ricochet rewatch: Ricochet vs Micheal Elgin PWG BOLA 2012 (Not 13, worng thread. Sorry.)

I think I enjoyed this a lot more than anyone else. To me this is a legit MOTYC, liked it far more on second watch. This was just batshit crazy. Like a Davey vs Elgin sprint just far more fun, mostly because of Ricochet. Elgin was good here too, similar to any match vs Davey his execution of his big moves is great. Some of the counters by Elgin were insane, terrific feats of his crazy strength. And Ricochet is just Ricochet. He's just so crisp and flawless its not even funny, dare I say more so than Pac? He just gets better and better. This is defiantly my match of the weekend and one of my favorite PWG matches this year. ****1/4+

Agreed on how great that match was, but it took place last year.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I actually skipped End vs. Ricochet for the time since I had have paid attention to the match and wanted to go back to it not as fresh. Same with Masada vs. Super Crazy though my gut tells me that it isn't nearly as good. 16 Carat is a goal for today. Let's see if I can actual achieve it haha

End/Ricochet was good but too short. I liked Masada vs. Super Crazy but I saw the match live and not on DVD.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Antonio Cesaro Vs Sheamus (05/06/2013 WWE)
★★★★+

I'm usually not as high on Sheamus as most but both men were fantastic with Sheamus making Cesaro's offence look potent, while Cesaro bumped well for Sheamus. Cesaro was relentless in his attempts to lock in the chicken-wing on Sheamus' injured shoulder (thanks to a nasty ringpost bump), and managed to counter every signature attempt by Sheamus in this process. That is, though, until The Celtic warrior went for a play out of the norm by reversing, at haste, to drop Cesaro onto the turnbuckle from the White Noise position as Cesaro struggled to undo the arms and pick into the chickenwing, again. I, also, actually wanted to buy into Cesaro winning with his Neutralizer if he hadn't gotten slightly cocky in setting it up.

Right now, there are no wrestlers alive that stand out as worker of the year anywhere near Negro Casas or Antonio Cesaro. I'd still give Casas the one-up, but I've yet to see a performance from either man that isn't, at least, good. Five whole months into the year (as well as counting the number of matches they've put on) and that becomes a truly impressive feat. No matter what WWE do with Cesaro, I can't be disappointed in them not using him in good match-ups, at least. I'd love for a Bryan/Cesaro bout, but it looks like NXT may very well deliver a seperate classic in Sami Zayne/Cesaro.

Oh, WWE, you're so awesome.


Vordell Walker Vs Mike Cruz (04/05/2013 SCGW)
LINK
★★★★-

I barely remember what I had penned in my thoughts, as I had hoped to have posted it with gushing reviews for both the Las Traumas and Casas/Navarro matches from a particular Mexican "dream card" but those were marred by politics. Why can't wrestlers just wrestle?! No matter...

Aside from Cruz now working heel, the basic premises of their earlier encounter play out here. Cruz is a small man and bumps well for Vordell's strength, while Vordell gives such a great sell-job that it would make sharkboy22 give a shit about the indies. The missing audio, as well as the lacking video quality, may make you wish to put this off but I implore that you don't. Do Indy wrestling a favour and witness the goodness of the guys in the lower leagues that bust their ass for a handful of fans. Because it's these guys putting on the great matches at a consistent pace.
