Not exactly a MOTYC but it's a match I feel more people need to see so I'm pimping it in here.
Alberto Del Rio v Jack Swagger - Smackdown (4/19/13)
Wow. I loved this. Story of the match is built around Swagger's injured arm and his ankle lock, and Del Rio's injured leg and his cross-armbreaker. They work it brilliantly with constant limb work, great selling, neat counters and sequences involving the injured body parts, and a good pace. They both know each other's weakness and look for openings to take advantage of that over and over again. Some of the spots are really great too. One that stuck out to me was Swagger clattering into Del Rio's bad leg when ADR went airborne. The ankle lock/armbreaker transitions were smooth and the finish was good. Despite all the limb work neither man was able to gain control and apply the killer hold so a roll up was an appropriate end. I liked their Wrestlemania match but this was on a completely different level. Great match.
