re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I'm disappointed that CM Punk's title reign is over. But I'm not mad that it was at least taken by The Rock, in hyped match on a big PPV. The match itself was very meh, thought it was better than Rock vs Cena, but still like 3 star territory.

I also agree with Rah on The Rock as a performer. I've always thought his promos were lame because he could never be serious or stay away from his jokes and catch phrases. Ever since he's "come back", he's become a parody of himself. When The Rock makes the crowd laugh by making cheesy jokes, using light swear words and comparing people to food products, it really highlights how low brow the entertainment really is. (snobby post of the day).

The promo about The Rock's mom having cancer and him trying to do his best Dusty Rhodes "Hard Times" impersonation before the main event on Sunday was cringe worthy.

The feud between him and Cena was utterly terrible. I've never been so turned off to a match that I used to dream about. Two grown men insulting each other with playground insults. People arguing who got the best of each other as if it is a freestyle battle (coincidentally, people thought Cena was super awesome just because his insults would rhyme on some nights)instead of getting in heated confrontations, or even just fighting each other.

I have to say, I really haven't enjoyed Rock's come back at all. I still look forward to seeing him wrestle since it could be a spectacle, but someone like Brock Lesnar has been a lot more entertaining in his two come back matches.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Punk vs Rock got mentioned in here? Yikes.

It was a really bad match. Rock being gassed didn't even turn me off. It was the fact you heard him call every spot in the match that made me say "fuck it". Piss poor booking & lack of anything noteworthy throughout was merely the icing on the cake.

Rush Vs Terrible (CMLL 26/01/2013)
CMLL World Heavyweight Championship match



Rush comes out to Pitbull's lyrics:
Quote:
I know you want me, want me. You know I want cha, want cha
And I cannot help but express that those are my exact feelings over a Rush match. As breathtakingly beautiful as the CMLL ring-girls are, they need to GTFO whenever Rush comes out so the cameraman isn't distracted by tits and ass.

Don't be perturbed by the weak shoulder blocks in the first caida, the match is as personal as it gets. This is easily my favourite feud bar Casas/Panther and it's all due to Rush. Terrible may not live up to his namesake but, comparatively, he just is not on Rush's level. Hell, who actually is? At 24, he's reached a point many won't in their entire career. It's an absolute treat to watch his cocky performances and the douchebag mannerisms he has towards his opponents. As an example, an arrogant Rush (fresh from a pinfall victory in the primera caida) double stomps the living shit out Terrible before symbolically ripping his opponent's head off, placing it in the middle of the ring, and kicking it out the stadium before mockingly saluting the crowd. FUCKING BEAUTIFUL.

Another thing that stood out here, for me, is that the falls actually got distance to them, which is a fresh breath of air from the typical CMLL booking I end up seeing. It had that Polvora/Titan feel in that the first two falls were about pinning each wrestler on the same level but as this match went on it developed into a much greater story. Terrible grew more and more desperate, slowly bringing out the heel mannerisms in the hopes of retaining his title. Rush's work here, despite being the tecnico, just elevates your sympathy for (the rudo) Terrible over that.

Sure, Rush's Toque de Espaldas (his hammerlock into the pin during the primera caida) isn't too great here but that's the only real issue I can see in his work. Aside from that, if you aren't a fan of slow counts then you'll hate this one. But, and I stand by this, the count adds to the match dynamic. Simply contrast the final pin to the ones before it. They all either built your hopes for Terrible to kick-out or, inversely, agitated you in knowing Terrible just couldn't get the pin on Rush. Seriously, heel geriatric referees are THE BEST.

I'm not going to divulge further into this, I think it might just hurt the match as I cannot convey it accurately enough in words (nor do I wish to spoil the end, as it fits the storyline so well). I implore you to watch it, it's my Lucha MotY by a country mile.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

CMLL 01/01/2013

Pólvora vs Titán
A fantastic match based around one-upmanship. It manages to avoid the usual flaws these kind of matches usually have like the cheesy and cliche stare-off after the opening exchanges. Best moments of the match probably has to either the intense strike-off at the beginning of the second or how they made the finishing stretch of the final fall feel like a big deal. It's stuff like that makes this better than your typical back-and-forth indy spotfest.

Alright, dude. Thanks for the suggestion but did you really have to write AN ENTIRE ARTICLE about one match?

Lots of people do that. I do wonder if you've ever said anything positive to anybody in your entire life after seeing the majority of your posts. You reek of bitterness. Your life must really suck.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

What kind of moron actually disses long posts in a match analysis thread?

It's a good thing he hadn't seen my stuff from 08-10.He would have been freaking enraged. I would still post like that if I thought anyone would read it. Kudos to Rah for the writeup.
