Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

AAW Epic:

Shane Hollister vs Jimmy Jacobs - ****1/4 (Awesome match, kinda reminds me of the old Morishima/Danielson matches only with more flashy moves, Shane was fantastic here and worked over Jimmy's early bleeding greatly)

ACH vs Davey Richards - ***1/2 (Good match but went way too long, loved Davey's heel work)

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

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.

2CW - Living on the Edge VIII


Matt Hardy vs. Sami Callihan - ****

Oh yeah, this was damn good. Structured almost perfectly with Sami not going to let Hardy waltz into his house & get all his usual shit in, so he just beats the piss out of him and INSISTS on winning by countout, which in turn gives us some seriously close calls from both guys getting counted. Hardy plays a great underdog babyface & really doesn't get all that much offense in but makes it count when he does. Sami puts a couple really awesome touches on things throughout the match like spitting on his hand and watching it drip off when going for a chop & then completely removing Hardy's boot and stomping the shit out of his ankle late in the match. Matt's selling is on point throughout the entire match & the finish legitimately surprised me. Really, really great stuff.

There's also a really good main event in Kevin Steen vs. John Morrison, but the above match stole the show for sure.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I watched Davey Richards vs Kyle O'Reilly from the 5/4/13 ROH TV episode after hearing all the love it got, and all I can say is, man, some people are gonna HATE it when it eventually airs next weekend.

Spoiler for Thoughts:
So in the early going Davey actually sells the leg work pretty well. O'Reilly's strikes look like shit, but his holds are pretty good, and he does a good job of focusing on Richard's legs. Fine. Down the line, Davey's selling becomes sporadic, which I can maybe forgive...but then fuck me, not only does he apply a hanging arm bar to Kyle (with his legs wrapped over the top rope taking all the pressure), he follows that up with a top rope double stomp to Kyle through a table on the outside. He holds his knee in pain afterwards but I'm sorry, that's ridiculous. And then in the finishing stretch he hits his usual quick-fire kicks and all of a sudden the knee is miraculously healed. FML.

Couple that with Kyle completely whiffing a few strikes on numerous occasions, and I ended up being pretty disappointed. I think Davey is still capable of great matches, so it's not like I actively dislike him at all. But after all the praise that had been heaped upon the match thus far, I thought I was guaranteed somewhat of a classic. No such luck.

Absolutely loved this match, great story behind it, tremendous psychology throughout. Really surprisingly strong babyface performance by Hardy, by far his best match in the indies.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Loved the first half of Callihan vs. Hardy. The table spot setting up a significant control segment was refreshing & the repeated countout attempts were really effective, but they wound up going into standard indie back-and-forth mode & the finish only reinforced how meaningless the last few minutes of big moves had been. ***1/2

Thoroughly enjoyed Steen vs. Hennigan. Steen's envious assault on the abs made perfect sense & the finishing sequence was really well put together. ***3/4

Completely underwhelmed by Jacobs vs. Hollister. Just loads of fancy moves in front of a disinterested crowd. First time I've seen Hollister & he's might as well have 'Vanilla Midget' embroidered on his trunks - a flabby Gargano with low charisma & scant connection with the audience. ***

I love how he sells the knee well when the match is at a lul yet during the action his kicks are not affected nor are any of his moves. You'd think a leg that you can barely walk on would give out if you're using only that as a crutch while delivering a dime-a-dozen knees in the corner. Throw in him no-selling a vicious Sliced Bread DDT and scooping O'Reilly into a Falcon Arrow-Crossbreaker combo and this match is already laughably ridiculous from Davey's side alone not even 10 minutes in.

I honestly didn't mind the double stomp through the table as it was a fine desperation move. O'Reilly taking a tombstone early in the match and Richards taking a brainbuster over the ropes to the outside (~!), both to no end, grated me immensely, though. O'Reilly is a shoe-in for worst elbows in wrestling (I'm sure I gave this award to someone earlier this year but Kyle's got it beat).

The Anderson match gives me something to look out for.
Here's the link. ~16minutes, so it didn't go 19 minutes and, by your own words, you must now be happy.

Matt Hardy vs. Sami Callihan: YES!
I'm not actually going to rate it since I was there live and haven't gotten around to watching the replay but I absolutely loved Sami trying to get the countout victory by taking Hardy to planet Voltron. So awesome.

I can't get this to work. Is it just me?

EDIT - There we go. Got it.
