Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread
Jay Lethal vs Michael Elgin (ROH 4/5): ***3/4
Kevin Steen vs Jay Briscoe (ROH 4/5): ****1/4
Loved the main event, the story behind it, the involvement of SCUM and the ROH roster coming out and fighting them to make sure they wouldn't get involved. The work of Jay's arm and his selling was great, the backstory of Jay always being the bridesmaid in the past. All the little things such as Veda Scott stopping Compton from getting involved playing off the recent TV taping where Compton grabbed a hold of her. Hardy getting involved trying to twist of fate Jay with Steen throwing him out wanting to win fairly by himself. All of these things added to a really excellent and dramatic match. Maybe the ROH match of the year thus far.
Yuji Nagata & Hirooki Goto Vs Kazushi Sakuraba & Katsuyori Shibata (NJPW 4/7): ***3/4
Shame that it ended the way it did because this could have been an amazing match overall. It was still awesome for the time it got.
Shinsuke Nakamura vs Davey Boy Smith Jr . (NJPW 4/7): ***3/4+
Kazuchika Okada Vs Hiroshi Tanahashi (NJPW 4/7): *****
Match of the Year so far without a doubt for me, incredible from start to finish. No reason in my mind why this isn't a 5 star match.
