If handled correctly it can be a good way to add drama to a nearfall, BUT the problem is I don't think it's ever really handled correctly. It's either a normal 1 and 2 count, then the ref takes a coffee break before coming down for the 3, which just looks like shit and is a tip off of what's going on. Or the ref takes 12 seconds to count to 3 and it just looks kinda goofy. Slightly slower, but consistent counts are the key imo. Be subtle, you goons.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

One random occasion I liked the slow ref counts in Mexico was during Mysterio vs Myzteziz TripleMania. Maybe it's because I loved the match as a whole, but those lingering dramatic counts were working.

Probably watch the Tokyo Joshi Pro or NOAH show today. Depends which I'm in the mood for, but I'm longing for that Satomura vs Saiki match.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

I give a YES to Gallus vs British Strong Style on the NXT UK (1/9/19) episode.

I gave that great match a 9/10

Adam Cole v. EC3, NXT TV 01/09/2019 - **** (YES !)

On a second watch I actually really enjoyed this, in around the 8 minutes they were given they told a really good story in Cole working EC3's arm & neck. I love that Cole is expanding his moveset, went for the basement dropkick, backstabber & an armbar in this match. EC3 worked really well here too as he always looks his best when he can utilize his power against smaller guys. Cole was the perfect smaller guy for him in this case as Cole bumped around like a madman for him. Overall just a real enjoyable match for me to watch and analyze.

Yaffa: Over/under on Marky nominating Ethan Carter the THIRD vs Adam Cole on the MOTY thread?

Me: It'll be at least ***3/4, strong chance he nominates it.
