Main event was full of great spots and some awesome submission stuff. The storytelling worked for the better part of the match. They messed up the psychology in the final 10-15 mintues with all the reversals, kick-outs and finishing movies. It became more of a boring Punk/Bryan match than something I expect from NJPW. Tanahashi also performed a piledriver towards the end of the match and it didn't look good at all. That was weak.

Tanahashi - Suzuki at King of pro-wrestling was a better all around experience for me.

Had he have hit the RM and won I'd put this at 5* and not budge on this for MOTY of 2013.

I'm on the other end of Nakamura/Sakuraba to. I think it was a great match at ****. I'm a huge fan of Nakamura to (who isn't?). Have watched it twice and while I'll remember it at the end of the year because I love matches where hate shows I don't think it was epic.

Noticed Bubz said over in the indy thread that he posted his thoughts on the big matches in the MOTYC thread. I go over into the 2012 thread and was like wtf? No posts. COMPLETELY forgot it's a new year But hey, looks like Wrestle Kingdom has already won show of the year, right?

Bubz, it would appear from your rating in the other thread that you didn't like the juniors spotfest. I thought it was excellent, and was much better than the Shibata match outright. what were your problems with the juniors match?

I don't think this will end up being show of the year but that's because I think NJPW or PWG can possibly trump it. Maybe that's wishful thinking though.I only had 2 matches at ****+, even if I did end up thinking there were a few more really good matches in the tag title match which I'm pretty sure I enjoyed more than anyone, Makabe/Shibata,and Nagata/Suzuki.Some people are calling this the Best Wrestling Event Ever. That's HIGH praise. Far too high. I would put 2012's DOMINION in front of WK7 and that's less than a year ago. Maybe if I rewatch things later this year I'll feel differently about feeling confident that it really could/should end the year as SOTY. If nothing else WK7 certainly put forward an early front-runner for MOTY. An actual legit candidate, not just a placeholder since we are so early into the year in Sakuraba/Nakamura.

It's interesting you compare this to Dominion because I did the exact same thing, I honestly think besides the main event WK7 was better in pretty much every way.

suzuki/Makabe, and both main events were all 4 stars plus.

Different people have given both the juniors match and Makabe/Shibata 4 stars as well. (my own opinion withstanding)

Maybe it was just me, but I really think the Tag Title match wasn't too far off from 4 either.

The dream tag, while certainly not a classic, had the crowd going nuts.

That's 7 matches that are at least very good, and up to five that many could legitimately call 'great.' For me, Dominion had two great matches, and maybe 2 more that were good. Dominion had a better undercard, but to me, solid little undercards aren't nearly as memorable as putting together as many incredible matches as I feel WK7 had. I'm not even dissing Dominion, its probably my favorite from last year, but this was outstanding.

I really need to rewatch Sakurba/Nakamura. I though it was okay due to Nakamura but I don' get the booking behind them fighting each other. I know he's an MMA guy but he didn't look like a threat imo.

I did enjoy the Jr's match a lot. ***1/2 is still a rather good rating. Just not the style I can get into these days as much as I used to. The spots were good and there were some brilliant sequences, but overall it just felt like a match to show off three guys doing their moves (in a similar vein as the TNA Unbreakable 05 3-way match which I don't care for anywhere near as much as I used to), which isn't really a bad thing when it's done right like this one was. Just wasn't enough in it to warrant a higher rating for me. Ki wrestling as Hitman was fucking awesome though. Came off as a character straight out of a John Woo movie or something.
