Appreciate that. I've seen only three matches of them. Heard nothing blow away from DDT4 but can't wait to see three Young Buck's matches on one card.

Cena vs. Punk from RAW 2/25. MOTY to this point for me.

My MotY list is in my signature (shameless plug). Each match in the post links to its write-up so you can see what I thought on it. I also don't think I've missed anything (DDT4 didn't do anything for me), if it isn't on the list then I didn't think it worthy. I do have a couple Mid-Atlantic Indy matches to go through, though.

3-Way tag match [probably will rewatch this before I give it a rating]

Lethal Lockdown was a blithering mess. I loved how Taz would play up the fact they had a man advantage yet it took A&8's so long to get into the ring they had already lost at least half their time. Add in taking turns in beating their opponent, instead of pack-mauling (I'm looking at you Knox), and this match was just illogical. Wrestling was okayish, otherwise. The massive superplex was death.

Bully/Hardy was average-good, too. I had to watch it late into the early morning so I was half-asleep for it, though. The shenanigans I hated, frankly. Why not let Bully win clean before the reveal? He's worked his ass off for this spot, give it to him properly. It just felt so Hogan'ish at the end of the day and I'm not sure if the fans were angry at the stupidity or because they got worked well. I'd say the latter because the swerve was pretty obvious (especially since Hogan made him #1 contender). By the by, that isn't a dig at TNA but rather having experience in knowing how wrestling stories usually go. A heel Bully is phenomenal so I'm anticipating his reign, however.

3-way Tag Title match was pretty great. Bad Influence/Champs had some awesome sequences and Hernandez did his shtick right. It was all about playing to the Texas crowd.

As for the X-Div match; yeah, worst match I've seen all year. Fucking abysmal. Reks 2.0 has no business anywhere near a ring. MINUS STARS.


Aside: anyone else notice the lack of blood? I don't think I've seen anyone complain about it on this website. Hopefully we can get past the mentality that "blood = everything", especially when Lockdown is meant to be TNA's most dangerous PPV.

Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, Jado & Gedo vs Minoru Suzuki, Davey Boy Smith Jr., Kengo Mashimo & TAKA Michinoku - ****1/4

Brillant match with great drama. The Ishii/Kengo exchange was fantastic. I will watch the rest of the show later.

EDIT: Hiroshai Tanahashi vs Prince Devitt - ***3/4

Really fun with more than enough greatness thrown in to make this a MOTYC for me. Juniors shtick is great. It's always great with them 3. TAKA bumping when Archer or Smith bodyslam someone and he's standing on the apron is the greatest spot ever. It's almost better when the camera barely catches it and you just see TAKA bump off the apron to the floor when it happens. Need more multi mans with TAKA and Taichi tagging with Archer and/or Smith so they can recreate the greatest spot ever when they both bump off the apron like total lunatics over and over again when the big men do consecutive bodyslams. Goon TAKA isn't far behind M-Pro TAKA and that TAKA was the fucking best. Match really picks up into great territory when Ishii gets his run and does what Ishii does best. Okada/Suzuki final run was good and I dug the finish. If I was nitpicking I'd fault Mashimo for being pretty bad and Okada for looking lost at times. I guess I just did. Nitpicking though. I can't remember the last time I actually watched Okada do his rainmaker pose. Everytime he does I immediately look for Gedo doing his version of it.

****

Nakamura/Archer was kinda bad I thought. Ref bump nonsense just killed the match flat as soon as they were building momentum. Match was very so so before that though. Devitt/Tanahashi I liked and thought was good but just below MOTYC status.
THIS. ****

CHAOS vs Suzuki-Gun & Tanahashi vs Devitt were must see matches from the 3/2 show.

Nakamura vs Archer seems to have earned a bit of a mixed reaction thanks to the wild booking involved. I felt it was pretty awesome for the majority. Worth a watch too.

Speaking of DDT4, I have to watch it myself. Don't know why it's been getting put off so long by me. Generico's final PWG matches. Should have been watched asap.

Yoshinobu Kanemaru vs Shuji Kondo (AJPW 23/2): *** 3/4

Loved this match for the time it got, finishing stretch was very dramatic. Kondo continues to put on great performances this year.

Kazuchika Okada vs Lance Archer - NJPW 11.03.2013
LANCE VANCE. This was great and largely down to Archer rather than Okada. Chuffed he got to have this showing after the Nakamura match didn't reach this level. Archer's moveset is really great and this was him plowing through his highlight reel in the best way possible. Benefits a ton from Okada not feeling the need to get his own moves in every other minute so Archer gets to just kill Okada continuously and it all pays off at the climax. Peak was Archer just squatting Okada's dropkick away. Loved the little size touches in the match with Archer not selling any of Okada's strikes and dominating any strike battles and just laughing off Okada's tombstone attempt. Finish fell flat because a) Okada's submission finish isn't very good and b) he hasn't used it enough yet to get it over. Other than thought this ruled for the time it got.

3-way Tag team match was Lockdown's MOTN. ***1/2 for the match. PPV was fun and entertaining, but nothing special. Main event was solid but I didn't really liked it.
