Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Bit late on this but:

AEW Double or Nothing

Cody vs Dustin *****

Honestly the whole show was great, the Bucks versus Lucha Bros, the Joshi match, Kong's debut, Alpha vs Omega, Orange Cassidy in the battle royale, the sledgehammer vs throne match (LOL), everything was fun

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

I give a No, but strongly recommended to Akira Tozawa vs Oney Lorcan vs Humberto Carrillo vs Drew Gulak on the 205 Live (6/11/19) episode.

I gave that good match a 7/10

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Dragon Gate King Of Gate 2019 - Day 16 06/06

No But Recommend: KAI vs Eita ***3/4

Am I turning a corner of KAI? His run in DG has given him so much needed seasoning personality/emotion wise. A fun 12 minute match with some good wrestling and great heel mannerisms from Eita. Can't go wrong with this at all.

TJP Tokyo Princess Cup 2019 - Day 2 01/06

No But Recommend: Miyu Yamashita vs Mizuki ***3/4

Great contrast of styles between two of the best wrestlers in TJP. Some crafty little sequences built around Miyu's strikes in this.



All Time Favourites:
Kazuchika Okada, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Eddie Guerrero, Toshiaki Kawada, Daniel Bryan, Kensuke Sasaki & Shinya Hashimoto

I write things sometimes. Always Wrestling related, obviously.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

I give a No, but strongly recommended to British Strong Style vs Imperium on the NXT UK (6/12/19) episode.

I gave that very good match a 7.5/10

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Doing a monster catch up on everything I've missed in recent months. Some rather surprising nominations I must say.

Jay White vs. Hirooki Goto (NJPW Wrestling Hinokuni) **** (YES!)

I looked back and I'm pretty sure there wasn't a single mention of this match in this thread, right? Color me shocked but for a match that meant next to nothing I REALLY enjoyed this. Goto can be one lazy formulaic fucker but when he's motivated like he was here I love watching his matches with the right opponent. Great back and forth stuff here shuffling between White's usual antics of playing defense & being smart and Goto flat out overpowering him half the time to try and keep him down and keep Gedo at bay. I always mark hard when I get to see the Kaiten and the reversals late in the match were thrilling. I obviously knew Goto wasn't winning but they did a really good job of still making him look strong enough to where it felt like White only escaped with a victory despite it being a clean win. Great match!... even though it didn't draw very well.

IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship: Dragon Lee (c) vs. Taiji Ishimori (NJPW Wrestling Dontaku 5/3) **** 1/4 (YES!!)

This was fucking fantastic. They made everything look SO smooth without it looking overly-choreographed or "fake" and it ended up feeling like a total war by the end. I really enjoyed Ishimori's work on top and that long submission sequence he had where it looked like he was gonna win it. Crowd really came alive by the end and I thought the match was a tremendous highlight reel without ever feeling over the top. Big thumbs up.

NO But Highly Recommended: Ishii vs. EVIL (Wrestling Dontaku 5/4) ****

----------------

I'm sure as shit not watching Okada/SANADA and I'm honestly afraid to even touch that Gargano/Cole rematch. I did watch that NXT Tag Title Ladder Match and that was a hell of a lot of fun. NXT is just not really grabbing my interest right now, idk.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

NXT 6/12
Drew Gulak vs KUSHIDA ***1/2 - A very good submission match.

NXT UK 6/12
Imperium vs British Strong Style ***1/2 - This felt like Takeover match up level but inring it was not that hot. It was good action with good build up but nothing great. What I don't like is Walter in NXT UK ring. I don't know I feel like he lost his charm. Even he don't look so brutal how he looked before. Bate gave him a punch and he flew away like Bate was Roman Reigns or someone bigger than him...

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

NOAH 6/9 Misawa memorial show in Tokyo

Naomichi Marufuji vs Go Shiozaki ****1/4 - No but highly recommended

Go's selling was a masterpiece act. Tremendous storytelling through the whole match. I didn't have any expectation at all but I was nicely surprised. I would like to say the same things about main event but it didn't feel intersting at all IMO.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

@DELITE Thanks for the heads-up on Marufuji/Shiozaki - I'm terrible at keeping up with NOAH, didn't even know this happened.

Go Shiozaki vs Naomichi Marufuji - NOAH June 9th - ****

HEROIC sell-job from Shiozaki, that was inspired, particularly him selling the agony after hoisting Marufuji up for the Go Flasher. Marufuji didn't do much for me in this, but Shiozaki looked incredible. Loved them rolling around in desperation as Marufji tried to lock in the kimura, Shiozaki trying to avoid it at all costs.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Won't nominate either match, but from 205 Live this week both Gable vs. Gallagher and the Fatal Four Way main event were both very really awesome matches.

Gable got to show his full repertoire and the 4 Way was super fun. There's one combo spot in particular there that was great. Hopefully the arrival of Gable can make 205 a show worth keeping up with again.
