Ángel de Oro, La Sombra, Máscara Dorada vs Mr. Águila, Psicosis, Volador Jr. - ***3/4-****



Really good match in my opinion, I'm just amazed seeing these guys doing unbelievable moves that I have never seen before with absolutely zero screw-ups. DAT Hurricanrana from outside was unreal, how the he did it? lol. Loved the Volador/Sombra exchanges, I assume they are feuding? a match between them sounds very good based on what I saw from both. Finish felt a little flat but still really great match. Oh, and of course, THIS thing happend during the match:



EDIT: After watching the Volador/Sombra match I love this match even more because this match had a lot of throwback spots between them. Awesome stuff.

CMLL Reyes del Aire Final: La Sombra vs Volador Jr. - ****



Really great match, everything you'd expect from such an awesome wrestlers like Volador and Sombra. Volador played a really good Rudo here, loved his antics in the match. I really wish that the finish means a future mask vs mask match which would be insane. Great match.

But I'm glad there's someone giving Lucha a try.
I have Titan vs Polvora at ***3/4 these days. I like it despite not claiming it to be the best Lucha match of the year.

Default Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Here's some more puro I've pimped out, a lot that's already been talked about but I might as well throw my two cents in:

Junior Stars (Koji Kanemoto & Minoru Tanaka) © vs. Jonetsu Hentai Baka (Hiroshi Yamato & Hikaru Sato) (AJPW 1/26):***3/4

Junior Stars have been the tag team of 2013 thus far and there is no doubt in my mind. They've been consistently great as of late and this another very good match to add to their 2013 collection. Thoroughly deserve the run they are on.

Alexander Otsuka, Fujita Hayato & Jinsei Shinzaki vs Asura & GAINA (Michinoku Pro 3/3): ***3/4

I can't remember who it was who recommended this match but I wouldn't be surprised if it was Rah. Anyway, super match from Michinoku Pro. A really really fun 6 man tag with a lot of goodness right here. My only slight complaint is I felt this match overstayed its welcome a bit too long and would have benefited from finishing sooner. It would have been even better in mind with a conclusive finish about 5 mins or so before it actually did. Doesn't effect the rating much though, tonnes of fun.

Junior Stars (Koji Kanemoto & Minoru Tanaka) © vs. Kotaro Suzuki & Atsushi Aoki (AJPW 3/17): ****+

Burning for me stole the show at AJPW's last big show (which was great btw so check it out if some reason you've neglected it) and this is one of the matches where this is shown. Add in some Junior Stars greatness and it would be hard not to get a great match of this. This was fantastic.

Get Wild (Manabu Soya & Takao Omori) (c) vs. Burning (Go Shiozaki & Jun Akiyama) (AJPW 3/17): ****1/2

Speaking of greatness. Oh my god. This was an all out war from the get go. This was my match of the night for the AJPW show and a match of the year contender easily. The finishing stretch of this match was one of the most dramatic this year. This match built up perfectly and produced a few really believable near falls. It put over Get Wild and especially Soya in a huge way whilst putting the belts on Burning who I feel deserve it. This was amazing.

Masakatsu Funaki (c) vs. Suwama (AJPW 3/17): ****1/4

Finally the main event of the show that's been talked about a lot here. This was an excellent match and a pretty unique one I feel as I haven't seen a match like this in a long while. As some people have already said, this had a real old school feel to it and was like a game of chess. Both men trying to out think and work each other targetting body parts in order to wear the other one down. This had very few big spots but it benefited from not having too many big spots as it told a brilliant story of the war of attrition these two put each other through. Very worthy main event.

I need to watch more Lucha myself.

And the apparent goodness of AJPW continues to pile up. I see it getting good praise, yet whenever I watch it hardly ever clicks for me. Although I've yet to witness the Burning matches like I said I would. I'll get on those soon enough. I have 8 months left in the year.

All Japan vs Burning is well worth your time. I had each of those 17/3 matches 1/4* lower than Crusade, but I completely echo his sentiments.

Can't say the same for Volador vs. Sombra, though. However spectacular some of the moves were, they basically spent 20 mins taking turns, which took me right out of the match. Maybe ***.

The All Japan juniors matches aren't for me. If you're not crazy about modern day Juniors matches then you won't love them either Cody. Still to watch the Jun/Go Tag but I'm sceptical.

Yeah not the biggest fan of the Jr's matches either. The Go/Akiyama tag is great though and a MOTYC. Still want to see Suwama/Funaki.

Goto vs. Okada
***3/4

This was weird. the crowd was so hot for the whole show and just totally shut down here. Usually when Okada does his top rope dropkick the crowd loses its shit, but here, they were out of it. I blame the black hole of blah known as Goto, of course, but that's just me. They got the crowd back a little bit after Okada hit his regular big dropkick and then went for the Red Mist. The whole spot when Goto was fighting for the ropes while Okada was trying to apply the Mist was awesome. But then Goto got a counter, grabbed his armbar...........and completely lost the crowd again. It was really disappointing.

To give proper credit, everything following that hold slowly won the crowd back, and Goto deserves credit for that, for sure. Okada just sells so damn well every single time. All of Goto's neck/back stuff near the end looked excruciating due to Okada's facials. Crowd loved Okada's counter of the Gotoshiki and loved Goto's headbutt out of the rainmaker even more. Good little finish but the crowd just wasn't into most of this.

Burning vs. Get wild
****

I mean, the finishing stuff is awesome, for sure. I love dueling superkicks in japan. Americans need to accept that they just aren't finishers over there. The headbutts were awesome, the double teams were great. The last 10 minutes were a lot of fun.

But there are too many problems for me to push this into MOTY territory. Most of it is the fact that Get wild is just boring when in control. Omori seriously added absolutely fucking nothing to this. I also would have liked some semblance of selling from Soya after that huge workover. Hated the moonsault, too. This was a very exciting match with a lot of flaws. A low 4 stars, I guess.

My MOTY list on page 1 has also been updated.

I'll probably take the pass on the juniors matches then. I watch one of them and found it completely average. So, it was already leaning into the territory that wasn't my cup of tea.

All of the Burning matches have been met with great praise. At least some of the six mans and this recent tag have. Heard the singles matches were all solid affairs.

Funaki vs. Suwama
****1/4

I am truly shocked how much I enjoyed this. I'm usually not a fan of Suwama (at all) but damn it if Funaki doesn't bring out the very best in him. All the early mat work was so awesome it made me miss Danielson in ROH. Suwama sold his neck pretty well until the last rush by Funaki. Funaki's arm selling was fantastic, especially the way his blocking posture changed through the match. I loved the callbacks to their last match and the finish was freaking great.
