Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

MOTY so far for me is Nakamura/Sakuraba which I rate as 4 1/4 stars (I may bump it up to 1/2 on further analysis). I can't think of anything that matches it, perhaps maybe Ishii/Goto and Ishii/Tanako. Haven't watched much Lucha in 2013, but then again I've been told there's nothing of note so far.

People should make time to see Cesaro/Neville from NXT. Quality quality match. They work like a Cesaro/PAC match on the Indies and end before it turns into an Indy match. Plenty of the spots you'd want from these 2. Finish is great with Cesaro making himself an opening and being clinical enough to capitalise on it for the win. Perfect finish actually. Main roster champ comes to developmental, takes a ton of offence from developmental guy but finds a way somehow to get out. Makes the developmental guy look so legit and it doesn't hurt Cesaro to give up as much as he did in this context. Not on the level of Regal/Ohno but it's a super sprint with these two doing exactly what you want them to do.
Invasion Attack

Plan on watching Cesaro vs Neville today. If I get a callback to one of their matches from the indies I'll go ape.

That was my pick for number one until something finally gave it a run for its money in Tanahashi/Okada. Two completely different types of singles encounters though. Can say love differs on which style worked you dug more. Both are the two best of the year, imo. Without a doubt. Regal vs Ohno & Undertaker vs Punk aren't far behind in their own right.

Nouvelle Vague.

This is my current MOTY aswell, loved this match, but going over some of Punks work, have Cena vs Punk as number 2, and Punk vs taker as number 3, I have a lot more New japan to watch thou, really starting to get into Puro this year

Marking the f*ck out for:
Akira Tozawa, Shinsuke Nakamura, Dolph Ziggler, AJ Styles, Chris Jericho, Daniel Bryan, Kassius Ohno, YAMATO, El Generico.

Never really cared for either Tanahashi nor Okada, and certainly not when they're working together. Their 4 series of match are good at best with some outings being painfully average, the Invasion Attack match is probably their best (but I'd only give it ***1/2 at the most).
Ohno/Regal was also good, but I felt they were massively constrained by the WWE style, however, Regal did very good in proving some brutality in such a restricting environment. My only problem with it was that there wasn't a lot of participation with Ohno, it just felt like Regal was purely the one guiding the match.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Grudge Match: Sami Callihan vs. Shane Hollister (with Markus Crane and Scarlett)
AAW Point of No Return
Rating: ****3/4

This one blew my mind out of my skull when I caught it live two weeks ago and it did the same on DVD just now. Everything in this one is crisp as it could be, which you would expect from a guy about to head to WWE and someone considered by many AAW's next Heavyweight Champ. You could feel the hatred, the heat, the, shit, I don't know, but these two have put on one of the best blowoffs to a lengthy feud I've seen in some time. The feud wasn't too good but it ultimately elevated Hollister back into one-on-one title contention. He had a shot last December against Elgin and Sami but no person to person shots in a while.

Hot crowd, very stiff, unprotected strikes, bumps aplenty, and story! There's a little overbooking at the very end, in the last maybe two minutes, but it's well-placed if you've followed everything up to this point. If you do not like Sami Callihan before this match, I have a feeling you will after it. Ditto Hollister, who is just getting better and better each and every time out there.

This show, by the way, is my show of the year from any promotion. Top to bottom fantastic.

Whoever told you that really isn't investing their time into Lucha.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

The Chaos vs. Suzuki-gun 8-man from Road to Dontaku did a great job of setting up the ppv title matches without giving too much away. Like Nervosa mentioned, Benjamin really upped his game here, and I loved Ishii's role as his team's enforcer, letting Suzuki know that Okada has some serious backup. Taka & Taichi were ace too - like a junior Yano & Iizuka. ***3/4

Check my sig. Might also want to add the Villano IV "retirement" match to that, too, as others seemingly liked it. The Namajague aspuestas tag is another I've yet to do a write-up for that should be worth a watch.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Really enjoyed Cesaro/Neville from NXT 4/25. Cesaro using the old Castagnoli 'Heeeeeey!' gimmick was fab, and it caught on so well with the Full Sail crowd. He should totally replace the yodelling gimmick with it, I could see it being as big as the Yes chant.

Loved the pacing of the match; we saw quite a few highspots from Neville, but they were all spaced out and it felt like they built to them. Hopefully this is a blueprint for how Neville matches could look like when Pac's called up to the main roster. Finish was AWESOME, Cesaro deadlifting Neville from the turnbuckle into the Neutralizer just looked so cool.

It's a low-end MOTYC for me, but well worth checking out. And it's just another notch on the 'Cesaro vs high-flyer = greatness' bedpost.
