Devitt/Gedo is a low-tier MOTYC, definitely. Gedo was isnanely over in Korakuen, and the cheating nearfalls were ridiculously awesome.

Just a better version of your modern day clunky TNA X Division. Wouldn't stand out in other promotions or in the TNA of 7 years ago plus.

I know TNA MOYTC are very low on the ground these days but still.

James Storm & Gunner are tag champs, currently doing nothing.

Mickie James is the women’s champ after turning heel, next challenger will be decided in a ladder match between Gail Kim and Taryn Terrell.

Abyss is the tv champ but hasn’t been seen much since he’s still doing the Joseph Park/Abyss split personality gimmick.

The BFG Series Tournament is going on to decide who faces the world champ at the ppv, right now the favorites are Magnus (leads point total), Ken Anderson (Aces rep.), AJ Styles (Doing the Lone Wolf/Tweener gimmick) and either Joe or Austin Aries.
Sounds like I'm not missing much then. Can't believe they've fucked Storm over like that after the build they gave him. I swear he was set to become the top guy in that company.

Thank God they've fucked him over, he's painfully mediocre and stale.

Agreed.

Although, I still can't believe how much TNA did fuck him over. To be en route to the ultimate high only to be given what feels like a pity win at BFG as his "golden moment".

Shocker, Terrible & Negro Casas Vs Maximo, Rey Escorpion & Rush (28/06/2013 CMLL)
★★★★ ¼
It's funny how the weaker team compositions deliver the greatest performances. Not only was the Shield tag with Kofi indicative of this, but I think this may just take the title for best example. No matter the match line-up, if I see either Maximo or Shocker listed I will not watch. I've never seen a performance from Shocker that was anything remotely decent and I've completely soured on homophobic comedy acts such as Maximo. Yet, weirdly, Shocker tried his hardest to keep up with the better guys here and finally delivered a good performance while Maximo (outside of his usual shtick) actually had a decent arm-drag spot and comedic moments. Perhaps because of the talent (or lack thereof) the rest of the guys involved worked their ass off in delivering a match entertaining enough for an Arena Mexico main.

I'm probably a little more positive on Escorpion than most yet he definitely delivered his share involved while Terrible did great in seconding to Casas. But great is one thing, both Rush and Casas were out of this world amazing here. If there's any reason as to why I love Rush, it's because this is what he's actually like. Forget his performances with middling Okada and half-assed Nakamura, this is the environ in which he shines. A staggeringly great match to add to the Casas/Rush feud and just even more reason as to why they need a singles match soon. DROOL~!

KENTA vs Takashi Sugiura - NOAH 12.05.13 - ****

This was a war. These man dished out a total battering to each other, and boy were they stiff. To be honest, in the middle portion of the match it was headed into epic territory but the overkill in the closing minutes turned me off a bit. I also probably would have gone higher had Kenta sold better, as on numerous occasions he just shrugged off some of Sugsy's biggest offense. Also, am I right in thinking it's always taken 3 GTSs to put Sugiura away in the past? In that sense, I like the continuity displayed here but it really kills the GTS as a finisher. This displeases me.

Aside from all that, I can't criticise the match any further. We saw some brutal stuff, like Kenta's double stomp from the top rope all the way to the floor, and Sugiura counters a spear attempt with one of the sickest knees I've seen in recent memory. Not sure if they slightly mistimed it or if he just didn't care about twatting Kenta in the face, but my God it looked SO nasty.

I also adored all the submission work they did. Sugs does an awesome sequence, starting with a dragon screw and gracefully transitioning into the ankle lock. Yep, gracefully! It's a thing of beauty. They traded submissions well, and I also liked the scrappy nature of Kenta reeling off little fists and punches as Sugiura tries to lock in the ankle lock later on, which Kenta desperately tries to avoid as he's already been in the hold for a while prior to that and needs to escape before more damage is done.

As you'd expect, there are plenty of strike exchanges, possibly a few too many and a little too prolonged, but they pepper each other with some hard blows and I was wincing on quite a few occasions.

Take away those flaws I pointed out, this would have been a bonafide classic. As it is, it's certainly one of the better NOAH matches I've seen this year and a low-end MOTYC with some really neat parts to it. Definitely worth checking out the middle 15 minutes if nothing else.

Because it needs more love:
Jun Akiyama & Go Shiozaki vs Suwama & Joe Doering-AJPW 2.6.2013.
I didn't come into this expecting my #3 2013 match so far, but that's what I got. This was easily Doering's career performance, I knew he could do good strike exchanges (see his CC 2008 match against Kensuke) but his power moves looked awesome and his timing was perfect, just like Akiyama's, Shiozaki's and Suwama's was. I have to give credit to Go because he sold for Joe really well in the opening portions and Doering took full advantage of that. Akiyama's staggering selling (trust me, you WILL notice it) was awesome. I wasn't crazy about the simultaneous reversals but they got a good pop and didn't hurt the match much. Kaicho Akiyama is awesome because he gets to murder people with knees, Shiozaki has finally got "it" and Suwama is great when he doesn't hold back. The finishing stretch was great and highly dramatic. WATCH THIS NOW~!

****1/2

Go away.

EDIT: I just saw your rating on P.TV for Sugiura/KENTA. Holy hell, nigh on 5 stars? Also, please pimp it here so more people watch it. <3

Shut mouth. You disliked a match with VADER DEATH GERMAN SUPLEXES.

It was just a matter of time really since my ratings for their matches gradually improved......except for DAT SPRINT. But DAT SPRINT is probably the greatest 2 minute match ever so yeah......everyone besides TelkEvolon thinks I'm crazy but whatever:

c/p of the review if anyone cares:

KENTA vs Takashi Sugiura-Pro Wrestling NOAH 12.5.2013.
Fuck. They did it again. And they did it better than ever. I praised their last year's match for being smart, and really cleverly transitioning from one point to another, as well as having awesome submission sequences and a brutal finishing stretch, as well as the usual stiffness. I praised their 2011 #1 contender's match for being a fucking great epic brawl and their 2011 Global League match for being one of THE great sprints. This match, however, was just on another level. Seriously. The way they played up to a cliche like corner to corner running strikes was fucking mindblowing. Watch that sequence and tell me you wouldn't fuck it up. Even if you do I won't believe you. And, that sequence and what followed are probably the crucial part of the match, because that's when things really picked up. The number of crazy spots done was higher than ever, all of the strike exchanges looked brutal, there was plenty of cool submission battles and convincing submission nearfalls, everything was executed perfectly, and the finishing stretch was fucking fantastic as you'd expect. Seriously. Not only did they do a great job of building up to the big moves, the ways they'd set them up were absolutely fantastic, and a reason why I bit on the nearfalls even though I knew the result. And yes, there was matwork in the beginning and it didn't kill anyone. Awesome stuff.



IIRC Randy said something about KENTA "not looking like a threat" to Sugs. Yeah because in front of someone 4cm (not even 2 inches) higher than him KENTA looked like a total midget :huh:
