I read the edit job. It's all square now.

As for the compromise, I tend to post reviews in the Non-Spoiler thread for Puro. While occasionally coming in here for a pimp job, brief or moderate level. This is the thread I use to gush about recent matches. That's where I like to separate my thought process at. Beats only posting snowflakes and not leaving any comment with 'em.

Ah, looks like I'm in the minority for a good few things this week. The extended high-quality of product throughout Wrestlemania, the greatness of the latter half of Xtravaganza (Aries/Joe!) and now this.

I really should watch NJPW's show. Actually, I'll do that now considering how pumped all these posts have made me. I'll follow suit of the lazy Honours graduand meme for today and just not go to Uni. Okada > everything.

I don't get the spoiler thing, to be honest. This is a 2013 MotY thread. Go ahead and review matches because that's kind of how this thread works. If you honestly don't wish to be spoilered then why come into the thread? Many people do write-ups the night of/day after the PPV. Of course a bolded title for the review is necessary so if I do come into the thread I can skip the post, but I'm not sure why, within a review, that we can't write-about a match.

Unless I've completely missed how the spoiler was done? Like a signature post, yeah, that I agree with. Signatures are visible in every post, so you're going to get spoilered. I completely avoid the forum if I really want to watch a PPV, now, as signatures and the top post of each section always end up spoiling a show for me.

It's mostly an issue with big puro shows that take maybe up to a week to become available for everyone to see. If you're writing a review for a match and it's pretty clear what you're talking about then there's gonna be spoilers so you'd have to be a fuckwit to read the review and not want to know the outcome. Stuff like spoiling a result without any warning when you're talking about something else or in a signature sucks because nobody can avoid that or know to avoid that. It's all kinda common sense. If the show isn't on XWT yet then don't make the outcomes obvious. Either use spoiler tags, use the spoilers thread or make it clear you're writing a review for a match which people are avoiding spoilers for. New Japan iPPVs are the big one to be wary of. There's nothing wrong in posting something like "Tanahashi vs Okada 4/7 - ****1/2". Just don't start talking about Okada/Goto NJ Cup Final for example and then randomly drop the result of the title match in there. Or post a picture which clearly gives away the outcome. If in doubt spoiler tag it and give people a week to watch it unspoiled after it's hit XWT.

I just want to point out again that I'm in no way discouraging posting reviews or even ratings for matches that have only just happened and not everyone has seen yet. Quite the opposite. Just be wary of writing something like XX beat YY for the title without appropriate warning that reading on might spoil the result if you're avoiding it.

Clear? If in doubt spoiler tag your reviews up if you know it gives the result away.

you can also turn signatures off. that is why i was not spoiled for the match. signatures are completely retarded for the most part.

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.

William Regal vs Kassius Ohno, NXT (4/11/13)

Absolutely brilliant match with a great performance by Ohno but an absolute demonstration by Regal that he is still one of the best workers going today when he puts on his boots and steps into the ring. Match is the definition out of working very basic but letting the story and selling of both men add so much more into each exchange and smartly pacing between each transition and into the finish, which is absolutely stellar. Regal smartly decimates Ohno's hand and fingers throughout in such a beautifully violent and sadistic manner and the payoff is wonderful with Ohno later struggling twice to lock on a cravate with his left hand and later Regal being able to transition out of the cravate because Ohno can't control him in the hold. There's also a great close up of Ohno looking in shock at his fingers and trying to pop them back into place in the corner and he sells being continually grounded by Regal and slowly tortured really well. Sadly the brunt of Hero's control segment goes missing in the commercial break, but the setup is great with a stiff baseball slide to Regal's skull & whilst Ohno is relegated mainly to strikes we have Regal amazingly teasing a possible concussion after Ohno kicks him in the head whilst he's against the ringpost out of revenge for Regal's finger manipulation.

Regal's facial expressions from here on out as well as his body mannerisms just get over Ohno's strikes wonderfully. He nearly collapses the minute he starts to move in a forward motion, struggles to turn his body full circle on the mat as Ohno circles him in motion, has this brilliant almost dead eyed expression after a stiff Ohno boot and there's one inspired bit of selling where Regal tries to move forward before pausing mid motion and nearly tumbling to the mat. In between all of this Regal also busts out a truly wonderful half nelson escape by using his leg for leverage and they really play up how he uses his veteran instincts and ring awareness to keep ahead of Ohno despite Ohno being younger & fitter. Mule kicks in the corner right in Ohno's face as Regal casually chats with the ref about the count was such a subtle but brilliant spot that showcased Regal's intelligence and the final couple of minutes are incredible. Ohno hits this great boot that Regal bumps brilliantly for to the extent you think he's legit concussed before a desperation counter and immediate strike for the win.

Spoiler for finish:
Ohno goes for the rolling elbow but Regal despite staggering catches him plum with a desperation elbow before composing himself long enough to hit the knee trembler and literally collapse aimlessly onto Ohno's prone body and eventually roll him over for the pin.


Hard to compare it to Punk/Taker in terms of WWE MOTYCs, but I'd say it surpasses Del Rio/Show LMS from Smackdown and I'd probably call it a better bell to bell match than Punk/Taker, but wouldn't begrudge anyone who thinks the opposite. Christ on a rewatch I might prefer Punk/Taker. Regal's performance was brilliant though.

Can't wait to see that. Not watched much of Ohno since he started on NXT, but I'm guessing this is the best thing he's done there so far. Always been a huge Hero fan so I'm looking forward to seeing him pull out something great in a different environment.
