Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread
Watched Swagger/Zayn. Really, really good match, but much like the 2/3 falls with Cesaro, it feels like we're missing a lot. The first part of the match, before the commercial break, was good and everything, but to get a "this is awesome" chant almost as soon as the break ends? Feels like we missed some pretty important stuff there. I'm really happy to see that Sami has been able to get over to the degree he has without really changing the style we fell in love with on the indys, but there are a few signature mannerisms that worked for Generico, but come off a bit too over-the-top without the mask. That's a minor complaint, though.
A bigger complaint, although it may be a weird one: Did anyone else find it a little off-putting that Swagger was in firm control before the break, but the first thing we saw after was Zayn hitting the Blue Thunder Bomb? I tend to like prefer it when (non-live) TV matches just edit out part of a single heat segment for the commercials.
