re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread
I enjoyed Tanahashi/Anderson...but it didn't feel all that special to me. I'd probably put it around the ***3/4 mark, although considering everyone else's praise, it maybe worth a re-watch. Anderson has some nice near falls, and his selling was good, but nothing ever came of it, Tanahashi didn't particularly focus all his efforts on the knee. Very solidly wrestled, but it was just lacking something, can't quite put my finger on it. Emotion? Maybe despite the nearfalls I never bought Anderson winning, and it looked like Tanahashi was just biding his time until the inevitable Super-Hashi comeback.
