re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Nah, but I just hate people who overanalyze pro wrestling. Like, itt's alright if you're writing about the build up and how much the match means to you, but fucking writing about every little detail and getting legitmately frustrated about stupid shit like selling instead of enjoying pro wrestling for what it is. That takes the fun away. Sorry for disagreeing.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Rah was talking about the match not anything that wasn't a part of the match. I'd rather read a post about the match that goes into detail than see that person that goes "Wrestler A vs. Wrestler B:****" or even just adding "awesome match. Great work done by both men" doesn't help me. The review I read was awesome.

And about that review, I saw somewhere else Rush vs. Terrible being talked about and I knew I needed to see it based on how much I enjoyed the other match of theirs I saw and to see that you thought this match was better

Rah writes up a great review on a match he thoroughly enjoyed. Gets a negative response for it.

What?

Anyways...I'll watch. Lukewarm on Rush b/c I didn't care for his work in New Japan. Perhaps he was out of his element over there.

You could just skip the write up and look at the star rating.

CMLL 01/26/2013

Rush vs Terrible
One thing I can take from this viewing is that Rush can be pretty good, which surprised me as he's utter garbage from what I've seen from him in NJPW. He's great at playing a cocky little shithead and was just full of charisma. My main gripe of this match was the face/heel dynamic. They tried to work the match with both guys working heel and it didn't sit well with me. There were times when a wrestler would build for a comeback only to blasted with boos from the crowd and when he got that comeback, he'd start his own heelish control segment. It's all very odd to me. Both guys can work very well; their timing during some of the spots and sequences was impeccable, but I just think the face/heel dynamic was just too much to pull off. I wasn't quite as high on this as Rah. but it was overall a very enjoyable match. Oh, I also loved the whole schtick with the heel referee turning on Rush.
★★★½

Oh for fuck's sake. People enjoy selling. I enjoy selling. There is no reason not to and pointing fingers at someone for liking "stupid shit like" selling is way stupider than being picky about a wrestling match. I read this shit so much that I shouldn't be surprised any more, but there is almost nothing more annoying than the 'stop over-analyzing (which we aren't) wrestling and just sit back and watch it' crowd. We do sit back and watch it, we do enjoy it. We enjoy selling. Someone people don't care about selling - fine, I don't care about that; enjoy what you want, but I seriously think there is nothing more important in a match than good selling and will enjoy it and I have no fucking clue how anybody could say any of that takes the fun of wrestling away.

Well, then you are in the wrong thread.

Terrible vs Rush for the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship

Great match here. Definitely so much better than Titan vs Polvora and I know I'm going to be in the minority with this one but that's how I honestly feel. I really enjoyed the story told overall for this match, all the falls were built up to well and made sense in context with each other unlike Titan vs Polvora where none of the falls built up to anything greater and where I felt the first two falls were not built up to at all and therefore had no greater impact building towards the third. If you want my other complaints about the Titan match just look through the thread and you'll see my review of it. This match however actually told a much larger story and benefitted from the selling by both men. I really loved how much of an arrogant douchebag Rush was towards terrible and how he dominated significant sections of the match which forced Terrible to resort to more desperate heel tactics to get the win. The jumping after the first fall and the fake kicking off the head into the crowd was especially brilliant. The big spots were built up to well and felt important in context to the whole match itself which is rare for me to feel that way these days when it comes to high flying and big aerial moves. Even though Terrible was clearly the heel as he tried holding the ropes twice and kicked Rush in the nuts you kinda felt sorry for him because of how arrogant Rush was towards him during the match. Repeatedly slapping him and ramming him into the barricade to soften up the shoulder. Whilst it didn't really work in terms of crowd reaction because inevidently both men got booed it was a story I actually quite enjoyed and felt was pretty different from what I've normally seen. The ref counts still annoyed me a little but at least I could clearly see that the ref counts were part of the story this time as the ref was biased towards Terrible who was the heel, allowing him to get away with his feet on the ropes and also fast counting his falls. Best CMLL match I've seen from this year.

****

But seriously, this saves me from typing this out pretty much exactly.
