Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

YES to:

- Ibushi/Naito at Dominion
(I tried watching this in real time and just wasn't having it; I was too burned out on these two after two SUPER EPICS in like a month. Coming back to it now, it's as good as either of their other matches from this year, but I don't advise watching them in quick succession.)

- Okada/Suzuki at Royal Quest

- Lynch/Banks, Hell in a Cell

- Tanahashi/ZSJ, Destruction in Beppu

- Riddle/Gulak, Evolve 131

My Ratings System

DUD/No Stars = I hated it.

★ = I didn't like it.

★★ = Eh. It was there.

★★★ = I liked it.

★★★★ = I loved it.

★★★★★ = This is as good as wrestling gets.

Dragon Gate The Gate Of Victory 2019 - Day 5 08/10

Yes To: Ben-K vs. Masaaki Mochizuki ****1/4

Am really fond of their great match last year and this was a little different, maybe a bit better, actually. Loved the arm vs back battle they implemented early in the match, with Ben-K looking to hit the powerbomb and Mochizuki trying to go for the arm to prevent it. The striking was pretty good as well near the closing stretch with Ben-K hitting a nasty headbutt for the KO win and Mochizuki hitting his kicks with way more stiffness than usual. Some great stuff. Yet another great Ben-K Dream Gate title defence. Go Samurai!

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Have to do it, sorry guys:

WWE Hell In A Cell

Seth Rollins vs "The Fiend" Bray Wyatt

-*** 3/4

Honestly one of the most bizarre, stupid, and pointless matches I've watched in a long time. I've seen some pretty fucking stupid ones in my life, too. I don't need to go over everything as you can click around this forum and see more than enough criticism of this match. That being said: for some reason, someone (Vince) thought it would be a cool idea to have the entire match in a red light. Bray Wyatt no sells all of Rollins' offense but gets in little of his own other than a few signature moves. Rollins then starts spamming signature/finishing moves. Several jumping knees, several curb stomps, and a pedigree later and Wyatt is still kicking out at one. Rollins gets a chair from below and brains a prone Wyatt. Wyatt kicks out again. It's important to note that up to this point, Rollins' moves are having little to no effect on Wyatt. Rollins gets a ladder and hits Wyatt again; Wyatt kicks out again. Rollins puts the chair in the ladder as though that's some sort of force multiplier and hits Wyatt with a tool chest. Rollins then puts the tool chest on the pile and gets a sledgehammer (more on that below) and hits the pile where Wyatt is laying. Apparently this is too much for the referee in a HELL IN A CELL MATCH, and the referee calls for the bell. Fans immediately start chanting "bullshit" because that's what this match was. As the paramedics come in to make it look like Wyatt is dead, Wyatt no sells it and makes the decision by the referee (i.e. Vince) look even more stupid.

21 years ago, Mick Foley nearly died in Hell in a Cell. Triple H has done far worse things in HIAC. By no means am I advocating for anything that over the top, but to stop the match for hitting a pile of weapons with a hammer is asinine. If he got up that quickly from that attack, why even stop the match? If you're going to make Wyatt look unstoppable, why not book Wyatt with ANYONE other than the guy you want to push to the moon and make Wyatt look like a sadistic bad ass? I quit watching WWE in 2012 and have recently started watching it again because I travel a lot for work and it's something to have on in the background. I think I'm going to go back to not watching it.

I'd like to think that this company will be better after Vince McMahon is dead, but it's just going to get taken over by his idiotic daughter and his doofus son in law and the rest of his stupid family.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

YES to Private Party vs The Young Bucks - AEW: Dynamite 10/9/19

Private Party really are better than I expected them to be. These two were great in this match, matching the athleticism of the Bucks easily, and special credit to Kassidy for selling his back really well following the powerbomb onto the ramp. Bucks were, well, the Bucks as per normal, but they did a really good job of putting over Private Party as a legit team, especially with the huge upset win that had the crowd going crazy. An electric opener this was.


Oh and Royal's Quest was much fun! Shame it took me months to sit down and actually properly watch it.

NO but Recommended - Birds Of Prey (Robbie Eagles & Will Ospreay) vs. El Phantasmo & Taiji Ishimori - NJPW: Royal Quest ***3/4

NO to Tomohiro Ishii vs KENTA - NJPW: Royal Quest

This was great initially, with KENTA being a tremendous bad guy and just heeling it up to the crowd. However, he did suffer a concussion following that german, and a lot of the match is just difficult to watch and enjoy in any aspect because of it. A shame because this probably would have ended up being a tremendous match, you could see it with some of the sequences following the german (Ishii’s near fall after GOD ran in was top). I hope they get the chance to do a proper match one day, and I hope KENTA is okay, he looked in real ROUGH shape.


YES to Hiroshi Tanahashi vs Zack Sabre Jr.

Not their best match, but I really never get tired of them grappling one another and the fantastic chemistry they always seem to have. We got all of their trademark spots, some real nice near falls, and to my surprise Tanahashi won! Good match!


YES to Kazuchika Okada vs Minoru Suzuki

An absolute treat this was! First off, this crowd was amazing, eating up everything these two were doing and going batshit crazy at points and it just made the match so much better. In particular, their reactions during those long striking segments was so goddamn great, as was the segments themselves. I was giggling when Suzuki was just flooring Okada to the awe of the crowd. Really, the last 2/3rds of this match was insanely fun, full of great counters and great slugfests, and the aura they had the entire match was something else. The only negative is that it took a good 10 min to really get going for me, although I did like cocky Suzuki early on. This was one of the best matches these two have had, and I wish I was in that crowd.

Bucks vs Private Party **** 1/2 AEW Dynamite 9/10/19

Great star making match from PP, Bucks made them look a million bucks (pardon the pun). Crowd ate it up. AEW Dynamite was great but this was MOTN on the show and of Dynamite's short run so far.

I give a No, but strongly recommended to Young Bucks vs Private Party on the Dynamite (10/9/19) episode.

I gave that good match a 7/10

I give a No, but strongly recommended to Kushida vs WALTER on the NXT (10/9/19) episode.

I gave that very good match a 7.5/10
