Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Some quickie live star ratings/recaps from AAW's EPIC event.

Prince Ali vs. Juntai Miller
Rating: ***1/2
Recap: Not a MOTYC but I'm including it anyway, since that's the way I do things. Solid 14-minute contest between these two relative no-names. Crowd was dead but these guys poured out their hearts and souls for them anyway. Ali's offense is dangerous-but-crisp in a way the Briscoes are when they're on, and some of the stuff he attempts falls into borderline Teddy Hart territory. My heart stopped twice in this one (figuratively, of course) -- once when Ali went for a reverse 450 and missed it, again when he attempted a reverse hurricanrana to the apron, botched it (obviously, how could he not), and ended up tossing Miller to the floor hard. Won't spoil the winner, for those who even care, but it's a neat little sleeper for those who do.

Shane Hollister vs. Jimmy Jacobs
Rating: ****1/4-****1/2
Recap: Some are calling this Jacobs' (and Shane's) best match of 2013, some of his career. Can't really argue with some of those claims, though I dispute others. In either respect, this is Jimmy's match, and it's one structured around the Undertaker/Michaels match at WrestleMania 25. With Jimmy playing Taker, strange as it sounds. This particular match also featured a gruesome dive to the outside, although this one busted the man open. The two played off Jacobs' bleeding and head trauma, and there were several suplexes from Shane that looked too brutal not to have been done out of spite. They laid waste to each other for over 20 minutes, and this will long be remembered as the match where Jacobs made Hollister, at least for AAW. Oh, and SUPER BONUS? Scarlett's outfit. HOLY SHIT indeed. Google it. Match of the night, surprisingly.

Davey Richards vs. ACH
Rating: ***3/4-****
Recap: These two mesh up well, and with Davey playing the ultimate cocky shithead heel, the dynamic here is clear-cut and fantastic. It plays like a new vet/old rookie kind of thing, with Richards at first not respecting ACH and just taking liberties with him during his control segment(s). Seriously, watching Davey stretch the kid into bodily positions I never imagined possible, going a little stiff with him, playing up the fact that he's the real Best in the World and his title match with Elgin next month, it was great. He did the Davey Thrust. My favorite spot of the match, no joke, was when he had ACH on the outside and hunched over a little. Boom, kicks him hard as fuck in the chest, ACH flies backward into the steel guard rail at a hundred miles an hour, nearly breaks the rail and a fan or two (the same fans he incidentally posed with earlier)... that was tight. But then my section, the camera side, starts chanting "over here." Davey hears us, he obliges. "Over there?" Big pop. He brings over ACH, jibes with the fans a little more, then says nope. Smiles. Rolls back into the ring. Fans go nuts. Won't spoil who wins, though the results are out there. It's a good half-hour of ACH's selling being put on display. Davey's offense + ACH's selling = gravy train a mile long, partner. But the finishing stretch was long, leading to what I thought was an obvious finish. Still good to great action and incredible drama in between, hoooly balls.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Yes I'll def check out these matches. Heard great stuff about Hollister vs Jacobs on Twitter, really liked Hollister from what I've seen and hopefully he'll show up at SCOH like I think he would. Jacobs having another awesome match this year is great news after last year that he basically did nothing thanks to Cornette.

Davey vs ACH in a 30 minutes match screams overkill to me but I have exceptions for this one after reading that Davey was a heel.

It seems like Prince Ali is very good. Looking forward to watch his match with ACH last month.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Ya, I like Hollister too. Always hyped to hear of a great Jacobs match too. If ROH had any sense he'd be the one to take the belt off Steen and not Elgin. About time he got a reign, belt should of been put on him when AOTF were shit hot. That's just my opinion though.

Love me some dick head Davey and ACH continues to shine so I'll defo check this out. AAW does really have some gems that are usually overlooked. Thankfully Last Chancery pimps them.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Rush vs El Terrible - ***3/4
Well, it's the first time I watched CMLL/Lucha Libra in general. Honestly I'm not a fan of the crowd reactions and these weird commercials during the match. Anyway, the firts minutes of the match were really strange, I mean Rush pinned Terrible two minutes in the match and after a minute or whatever Terrible got the pin. But thankfully after this the match really picked up, so far from what I've seen from Rush in NJPW he seemed to me like a good wrestler that is bland but he was awesome heel. With his look he looks like a perfect cocky heel. Very good match here and I loved the ending. I need to see more of CMLL's Rush, recommendation please?

Jun Akiyama/Go Shiozaki vs. Manabu Soya/Takao Omori - ****1/2
Totally loved it. I'm not a follower of AJPW and I believe that this was the first time I saw Get Wild, but whoever it was he played a great FIP in the control segment of Akiyama who btw looked like a complete motherfucker in this match. Shozaki looked awesome as well, he looks much different than I rememberd (in his ROH days) and better in-ring. The last 10 minutes were insane with some amazing near-falls. Overall awesome match, is Funaki/Suwama from the same show worth watching too? it looks like a long-ass match..

Yano vs. Okada
****

Yano isn't for everyone. I think he is freaking incredible at what he does. Great same-stable drama from the beginning with Yano's style being somehting Okada clearly doesn't deal with much considering he mostly wrestles babyfaces. It caused Okada to make adjustments into an incredible finishing stretch.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Davey and ACH had an awesome match in St. Louis Anarchy in 2011 so I can buy that match being great.

When you've seen the lead up to that tag match, Soya's role in there makes so much sense; especially when Akiyama told him that he had heart at the end.

Funaki vs. Suwama is not for everyone. I thought that they worked a four star match. Funaki's strikes are great these days, and Suwama is still a BAMF. There was, however, 15 minutes of matwork, which is not for everyone. Until the last minutes, it was a chess match more than a war.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Kazuchika Okada & Shinsuke Nakamura vs Minoru Suzuki & Kengo Mashimo - NJPW 11.02.2013
Really good tag. Nothing particularly deep to it but it's these 4 and duh it's really good when all 4 are on and just doing their thing. There's the most hilarious spot ever when Taichi's doing his shtick with his crutch (I just love how he took the injury as another form of heel shtick) and Suzuzki throws the rail but it hits Taichi and Taichi just does the greatest flop to the floor off it in an instant. Suzuki doesn't give a single fuck that he took Taichi out either. Okada's drumming up an insane list of great matches already this year.
