You notice how Morishima got none of the negatives there?

Yeah, I'm watching for that cat.

btw, did you ever see the Hell No vs Mysterio/Cara match, Cactus?
Can't say I got around to that match yet, but I will definitely try to watch it tonight. I did see ADR/Ziggler from the same show and that's worth a watch.

I still really like KENTA but maybe it's because I haven't followed too much NOAH recently.

So yeah. Mysterio/Cara vs Team Hell No was pretty fun stuff. Not a MOTYC in any sense but it's refreshing to see WWE put out a good tag match every now and then. Both teams being faces really helped the match. If we got more matches like this on TV, then I may actually give a shit about the tag division.

Shuji Kondo (c) vs Taiji Ishimori (NOAH 1/27): ****

Loved this match and this is the 3rd match featuring Kondo so far this year that is worth a mention. He's had a very good start to the year.

Naomichi Marufuji & Takashi Sugiura (c) vs Maybach Taniguchi & Yoshihiro Takayama (NOAH 1/27): *** 1/2

My top matches from January 2013 so far: (In-Order)

4.25 Stars:
Nakamura vs. Sakuraba - NJPW - IWGP Intercontinental Championship - 1/4
Tanahashi vs. Okada - NJPW - IWGP Heavyweight Championship - 1/4

4 Stars:
Kanemaru & Tanaka vs. Kondo & Hayashi - AJPW - All Asia Tag Championship - 1/3
Devitt vs. Low-Ki vs. Ibushi - NJPW - IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship - 1/4
Suzuki vs. Nagata - NJPW - 1/4


Morishima vs. KENTA from 1/27 was good but not a MOTY. Probably 3.5-3.75 stars.
I enjoyed Rush vs. Terrible but I wouldn't call it a MOTY either. Same with the Titan vs. Polvora. I'd rate them both around 3.5 stars.

I still need to watch Kondo vs. Ishimori & Marufuji/Sugiura vs. Takayama/Taniguchi from NOAH's 1/27 show because I've heard good things about those matches.

Nothing from the States should be mentioned in this thread so far.

Mascara Dorada, Titan and La Sombra Vs Mr. Aguila, Psicosis II and Volador Jr.
CMLL 02/02/2013


It's quite interesting that those who favoured Polvora/Titan disliked this match while those who didn't preferred this. It had good pacing (sensible booking), spectacular dives, Mije being tossed like a ragdoll and DORADA! When it comes to trio-tags in CMLL this is the kind of match I love watching.

I'm not going to go into length on this (I'm tired from a long birthday involving the debauchery of university ) but rzombie1988 had a nice write-up on his blog that I'll quote verbatim.
Spoiler for rzombie1988's review:

1st fall - Mr Aguila is wearing the most ridiculous face paint I've ever seen. He's like half-giraffe today. Sombra did a huge moonsault to enter the ring after the match started. Sombra tried to do the stopping thing and Volador just went through him. The faces hit double splashes and Aguila did a flipping tope while Volador did a swinging Canadian Destroyer to get the first fall for the rudos. Pretty fast and exciting finish.

2nd fall - La Sombra was holding his neck in-between falls which I hope is just selling. He and his crew were all down as the 2nd began. Masacara Dorada took a nasty hiptoss onto the stage where he bounced quite high. The rudos then did a really cool T-Gimmick-like move where Volador came in-between and flipped Titan over from under. Doarada hit an awesome over the top roe hurricarana from the stage. The technicos then did dives with a huge moonsault from Dorada. Sombra did Kota Ibushi's fake moonsault into a moonsault move for the win. Heck of a fall here with some awesome dives. The timing was awesome here.

3rd Fall - Volador took off his shirt to a loud pop and both him and Titan did cartwheel rebounds into the ropes then backflips before Volador hit a superkick. Dorada hit a high missile dropkick then did a jump over the top and springboard off the 2nd middle rope. He then took a Jerry Bump all the way to the floor. Titan did an awesome limbo escape on a clothesline and Volador took a rough fall to the outside. The faces did a triple dive which was freaking awesome with a Titan moonsault in the middle. God this match is awesome. Titan did his handstand escape into a moonsault and head scissors then ate a grea high spin kick before a Dorada sling blade. Mije came in to kick Sombra before getting tossed. and Volador kicked Sombra through the ropes before hitting a moonsault to the floor. titan did an armdrag and another handstand before the heels dropkicked him. Dorada came in and dove on his partner on accident before getting hit with a canadian destroyer and a Psicosis powerbomb on Titan for the win.

This match was awesome. Super sick dives, some stiff moves and a great pace. This is the kind of lucha libre I love! Rating:****


I must admit that this had me rethink my comments on Leono/Tiger Blanco Vs Bobby Zavala/Disturbio. I still think it wasn't as memorable as I'd have hoped an apuestas to be (or perhaps that feeling is rather due to only looking for and downloading great matches) but, on a rewatch, it falls just shy of a Lucha MotYC. That said, I wouldn't go too much higher here but, suffice to say, I think this will make my end of year list. Though it probably will not be as memorable as say Rush/Terrible come December.
