Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Yeah shep's said he's been largely subdued in NXT and not really done much and definitely not taken to the sub 10 minute TV format as well as Cesaro has. Still, he was really good in the match. Used mainly strikes but between his execution and Regal's bumping and selling for each one it really put over the work from Ohno and he sold the frustration and anger in Regal torturing him on the mat superbly. His subtle but long term committment in selling the damaged fingers was also one of the best things about the match.

Really disappointed by Okada-Tanahashi. The armwork killed it for me. Worst Okada's looked since his return.

You can't be serious? If anything the armwork made the match and added so much more drama to it. Oh well, opinions...

I'm sure that will happen haha.

But I'm a huge NJPW fan and gave the match 5 stars too so

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Regal vs Hero was worked under ten minutes? I was hoping it would have gotten enough time the level of Regal vs Ambrose. Just to capture the vicious juxtaposition that is Regal's villainous ways while picking apart Hero. Suppose I can't complain considering some of Regal's best matches have been in a sub-10 minute format. (vs Finlay x3, Goldust, etc)

Well, I have their Dome match at *****, and people say this one's even better, so I can easily see myself enjoying the match immensely.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

At first I didn't like the armwork. Then came the awesome double elbow pad spot followed by a "botched" pose and I thought they might turn it around. They didn't. Okada's arm hurts. Then it's fine. Then it hurts again. Then it's fine and then it hurts again and then it heals but then it starts hurting again and then it magically heals and by the end it was just a big clusterfuck. That's not good selling. I liked their ideas, but the way they realised them was not satisfying. I'd give it, like, ***3/4, so I don't think it was a bad match, I just couldn't get into the finishing stretch because of bad selling that made the armwork pointless. I just hope they give up on the obligatory limbwork formula because this match would've been SO much better without it.
