Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I watched it, wasn't a personal fan of it but I've seen people praise it enough to consider I'm just being a numpty.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I honestly don't hate the move itself. Its a little boring, and I think all three DID variations are more believable 'finisher' submissions, but Red Ink is fine in itself.

My only objection is how he insists on setting it up. There are like 3 ways I can think of that would be easier to set up that move than how he chooses every single time. They aren't as flashy as his way, but at least it would keep him from butchering it every single time.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

Yeah it's the set up that's ridiculous. If the move gets over as a finisher I'm absolutely fine with the move itself, he needs to just stop pissing around with that set up. It's super pretentious and I usually like Okada's flashy set ups and submissions because they fit his style and character. He uses about three submissions that look just as good and the set ups are far better too.

Re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I just rewatched Smith Jr. vs. Nakamura, and I am bumping it up to ****1/2. The crowd is just molten for it, especially at the end, and Smith's heel stuff just makes Nakamura's comebacks even more amazing. I like Okada/Tanahashi much more, but if I'm honest, I think the crowd was way more into this match's finishing stretch.

$5 Wrestling: Straight Out of Compton

Falls Count Anywhere Street Fight:

Big Donnie vs. "Mr. 1859" Cliff Compton

This was amazing. There was some serious heat between these two. Cliff starts the match out by just straight up bitch slapping Big Donnie as hard as he could. In fact the opening portion of this match was just Compton just beating the shit out of Burke County's own Big Donnie. Seriously he just beat the shit out of him for about 4 minutes. He whipped him with his belt, kicked him in the gunt (figure out what that means) insanely hard, and just did his best to kill him.

However one wrong move from Compton sent him flying into the wall, which someone cut open his head. And he bled buckets. Seriously he was wearing the Crimson Mask and he was at the mercy of Big Donnie. Donnie had some issues reentering the ring, they really need to raise that bottom rope, but once he got back into the ring we saw one of the most magical comebacks in wrestling history. Compton was trapped in a Bear Hug so he took out a pair of brass knucks and legit punched Donnie in the face with them. Then he went back to the gunt shots. However the proved to have no effect on the Burke County Behemoth. He got pissed and flipped Compton off in the ring.

What followed is a moment that I will never forget. The crowd was hushed as they realized their hero was outmatched. However Compton still had something up his sleeves. He took a step back and hit one of the most amazing moves I've ever seen. He did a Karate Kid style Crane Kick to the gunt of Big Donnie. The magic doesn't end there though. Compton wasn't finished just yet. He regained his composure and delivered an awe inspiring chokeslam to Big Donnie. The crowd erupted as Cliff Compton was victorious in the fight of his life.

I don't see how anything this year will top this match. It had everything. Compton is a mad man and he nearly sacrificed his life to get the win. Big Donnie is one of the best monster heels I've ever seen. Everything clicked and they delivered a match that was truly a classic.
****3/4

I was there for it. Aside from Ziggler winning the title I marked out more for that match than just about anything that weekend.
