Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Don't get the Chamber love. Outside of Henry's brilliant run it was really poor with nothing of much note happening. Lack of a big finish or start didn't help either.

That is why it's called organized crime.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I thought the Chamber was decent but not great. Henry coming in was the highlight and the Swagger/Orton/Jericho segment at the end was fine but it was nothing much before then. Honestly liked the six-man tag more then anything (***1/2). Shield played their parts perfectly as the cohesive team of jackals trying to take apart the three superstars.

Loved Okada/MiSu and Tanahashi/Anderson from The New Beginning.

Okada/Suzuki was a human chess game, slow paced tactical and mental war. Okada wasn't in his normal BITW mode here, his selling was questionable at times, but that's why Minoru was absolutely fucking fantastic. His facial expressions, body language, immense selling, sense for compelling pace, crafty ways of using defense and ofense, execution... He's Top 5 in the world right now, almost no one tops him when he's motivated. Great match. MOTN. ****

Tanahashi/Anderson was another excellent match, exactly what I expected. Dynamic and vivid pace, good and interesting workovers, they let us believe Anderson could win, he looked very strong in defeat, he had the crowd behind him. The finishing stretch was good, but not great. One or two kickouts too much. I actually prefered the first 2/3 of the match, the work was really great. ****

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

The chamber match may well have simply been a straight fight because outside of Henry's little sequence they hardly made use of the structure as a weapon OR went for eliminations. The pacing was terrible, it lacked any big impact moves, had poor execution and selling and didn't really do much for anyone but Henry and Swagger. Even then, for Swagger, his victory was a hollow one considering the roll-up. His entire spiel about lowlifes looking for handouts, opportunities and preying off the work of others kinda bit him in the ass here. Chalk it up to taking advantage of a situation given to you but he needed more of a decisive win to legitimise himself, in my opinion. But I guess it wasn't the worst booking of the night, that goes down to Rock/Punk for one of the most anger-inducing five minutes of recent memory. It was so fucking stupid. What with Jeff Garrett being name-dropped and Dutch Mantell returning, I wouldn't be surprised if Russo has returned as head booker now, too.

The only good match here was the 6-man tag and, even then, it wasn't truly much to write home about other than Cena & Friends going down clean. A lesser copy of their first match but still in every way entertaining. Here's hoping the matches they've laid out for Wrestlemania deliver better than what was offered here and ADR/Swagger isn't a badly emulated version of JBL/Eddie Guerrero.

Ein volk, ein reich, ein Swagger.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Did I see a completely different Elimination Chamber match night or what?

Where was the appeal outside of Henry?

Yeah I'm with Cody. Chamber was ass-boring and standard without Mark killing dudes. And foolish shit like Orton not even trying to pin Kane when DDt'ing him on the steel stuff. Or Orton breaking up a submission because dumbass forgot the rules were elimination or something.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Nah, disagree with you fellas. Had a hella fun time watching the Chamber match all the way through. Sure they didn't put the chamber to much use but it came off more natural that way and the spots we did get were pretty great imo. Double suplex to Henry was sick (sold that & the codebreaker like a fucking champ) and obviously Orton getting thrown through the pod was nice. Didn't notice little things Orton did that Yeah mentioned. Triple Threat match at the end was really really great for me. Really had no clue what was gonna go down. That crowd was fuckin HYPED for Orton, been a while since I've seen him get a reaction like that or so that much charisma.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Orton finally showed life, sure. Wouldn't say it attributed itself to making the match anything special. It was no different than the WWE Championship elimination chamber from 2010. Really long and nothing that stuck out. It was merely "there".

Shield's 6 man on RAW tonight has it beat by miles too.
