I haven't watched much, but what I saw from Vordell in 2012, he was pretty good. Not one of my favourites, not a terribly stand out guy, but I'd be willing to watch more of his stuff.

Vintage Wrestling 1/19/2013

Mike Cruz vs Vordell Walker
Man, get Walker to the WWE ASAP. Seriously, he's a big powerhouse who's very fast on his feet and can sell very well. What's not to like about him? His opponent isn't no slough either; Cruz is just mostly here to sell the threat of Walker by bumping in an Evan Bourne-like fashion and busting out the desperation moves when necessary. Walker's the star of the show though; his selling of the leg is brilliant and I love how it stopped him from hitting the big moves during the finishing stretch. A damn fine 11 minute match.
★★★½

I'm sorry you didn't like it. Not every match can be everyone's cup of tee. I can't say I was expected something under *** but too each his own I suppose.

Found his work to be awful. No appeal whatsoever. Everything to the nines to make me not enjoy his work. His promos about being the most underrated guy on the indie scene years ago were laughable.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Not sure if I agree with some of the ratings but I do like the idea of breaking it down by month rzombie1988. Even if a match isn't a MOTYC it would be interesting to see how each company/wrestler is doing from a month to month basis. Probably would be nice to do it that way to look back at it in retrospect.

No way those matches were on the same level, IMO. The cage match was mediocre, and the triple threat was good.

Indeed. My cut off for my MOTYC is ***1/2, but any honorable mentions deserve a plug here and there too. Luckily I've had a good hold of January right now. Only things left for me are some of the more obscure matches instead of from companies I religiously follow.

I liked both but I liked the Triple Threat more.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I think it'd be cool if at the end of each month or the end of the year we could have Top 10s for each month as well as are Top 25s or something for the year. I think that'd highlight some matches that wouldn't be at the top of our lists maybe but are definitely worth a look. I probably cut my posts for this thread at ***3/4 but if a match was a real joy and caught you by surprise I think then a ***1/2 match would be perfectly fine to plug here in my opinion. I haven't watched a lot of stuff from this month but obviously I've got WK7 under my belt, a few indy matches that caught my eye, a disappointing BJW strong style title match, some WWE watching, and that's about it. Trying to watch a little more than I did last year.
