re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread



I doubt anything tops Nakamura vs Sombra, yet I'm going to try and zip through the rest of Fantastica Mania come the weekend. Should be all kinds of fun.

Downloaded all 3 FMs, gonna try to watch them this weekend.

Btw, FMs are not just NJPW shows, they're under NJPW and CMLL banner together.

In Japan, they're getting grouped with NJPW for me. Not gonna let specifics hinder things here.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Just finished watching Tanahashi/Anderson and if Seabs won't say it, I will. ANDERSON MADE THIS. His selling throughout was superb while Hashi just didn't bring anything to the table aside from the usual. I'd have hoped for more from the neck-work done by Anderson but Tanahashi would have none of it. I'll do a proper write-up once I've finished with Okada/Suzuki tomorrow but there really shouldn't be any need to sell this to anyone. Great performance from Anderson, even if the ending was awful.

~ ★★★★ 1/4

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.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Alberto Del Rio vs Dolph Ziggler (WWE 2/13): *** 1/2

Feel this is well worth mentioning. This was another TV MOTYC featuring Del Rio this time on Main Event. Very good TV match between these two which comes highly recommended.

Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. La Sombra (NJPW & CMLL 1/19): *** 3/4

Absolutely loved this. The fusion of strong style and lucha in this one was superb. This just proves once again how great Nakamura is and how much of a versatile performer he can be. Sombra was also very good in this one and showed he also work strong style in portions of the match to a very respectable degree. Great story of style clashes right here. Yet another match well worth mentioning coming from NJPW.



MUSTANG

Alberto Del Rio v Dolph Ziggler - Main Event (2/13/13)
Really good back and forth match with a nice pace to it. Similar in style to their Smackdown match but longer and better. They busted out some dope spots and sequences, notably Del Rio charging Ziggler only for Ziggler to toss him over the top rope causing him to land face first on the steel steps and a sweet inverted superplex from ADR. Their normal offense seemed to have a little extra something to it as well (Dolph's DDT stuck out to me as being BIG) due to the athleticism and bumping of both guys. Ricardo was great as the ringside cheerleader and had a good comedy moment with Big E. Lots to enjoy about this. So yeah, strong TV match. Might be my WWE MOTY so far.

I hope he's not calling it a MOTYC, but the Roode vs Aries match was highly entertaining. Just finished it. Angle vs Joe was bleh. Can't imagine how anyone found it to be good.

Ziggler vs Del Rio was an easy to watch match. Anything noteworthy? Hardly, imo. I'll take their sub 10 minute match from Smackdown over it.
