Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

I give a No, but strongly recommended to Jamie Hayter/Emi Sakura vs Shanna/Riho on the Dynamite (11/6/19) episode.

I gave that good match a 7/10

I give a No, but strongly recommended to Pete Dunne vs Damian Priest on the NXT (11/6/19) episode.

I gave that very good match a 7.5/10

I give a No, but strongly recommended to O.C vs Matt Riddle/Keith Lee/Tommaso Ciampa on the NXT (11/6/19) episode.

I gave that good match a 7/10

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

BJW Ryogokutan 2019 04/11/2019

No but Recommend: Strong Hearts (El Lindaman, Shigehiro Irie & T-Hawk) vs. Astronauts (Fuminori Abe & Takuya Nomura) & Hideyoshi Kamitani ***1/2

Strong Hearts invade Big Japan! This is a high tempo match with tons of double, triple team moves with little tags, but thatís okay, this was balls to the wall action. Seeing Abe and Lindaman battle it out was great. Both have great chemistry and commend each other perfectly. Irie was great as the bruiser compared to Kamitani who did nothing. His headbutt to Nomura was sickening and his beast bomb on Abe for the finish was real violent. T-Hawk was good as well. Threw some of his nice chops and interacted with Nomura and Abe well.


No But Highly Recommend: Daisuke Sekimoto & WALTER vs. Yuji Hino & Yuji Okabayashi ***3/4

The opening exchanges between WALTER and Okabayashi were great. Loved the commentators going nuts for a simple run the ropes/leapfrog spot. Every time these two were in the ring together, it was magic - the struggle for the suplex was great, especially. There was tons of chop exchanges in the match and some of them were so ill timed and disrupted the follow as a result. The first thing Sekimoto did when he got in the ring with Okabayashi was a chop battle when it didnít even call for it. It made me roll my eyes big time. They got better incorporating it later but early on it come off as contrived. Hino and Sekimoto running into each other was much better. The finishing stretch was nuts though. Great end to the match. Just wish the match wasnít filled with generic Kobashi/Sasaki tributes, at least add some personality to it like Hino did.

Yes To: Ryuji Ito & Takashi Sasaki vs. Jun Kasai & Toshiyuki Sakuda ****

This was great. It couldíve fell apart after Sakuda almost broke his tailbone early in the match but Kasai, to his credit, took the match by the scruff and made it work while Sakuda recovered. The match was gruesome with tons of nasty, spiked weapons, tons of violent spots and great wrestling. Loved the needle through the check spot. I can watch it all day. Sakuda gutting it through and trying to prove himself was great as well. He was put over big time as well. Ito took so much punishment in this.

Yes To: Isami Kodaka (c) vs. Yuko Miyamoto ****
A very good main event between two friends. Wasnít about gore or violence, it was more about the creativity in the spots. Which was done very well. Some good wrestling early on which transitioned nicely into the death match elements of the match. A great crescendo.

TRENT? vs PAC ***1/2
Rough ending aside, this was killer match from start to finish. PAC is a brutal cunt, and TRENT? is a wonderful babyface. Rematch, please

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

***3/4 for Pac/Trent.

EASILY 4* without the botched finish. Those two have a great synergy.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

So AEW's PPV was a wonderful show top to bottom, with a little bit of something for everybody. I enjoyed the hell out of it, as you can easily see

YES to Proud and Powerful (Santana & Ortiz) vs The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson)

When they want to, the Bucks are tremendous at selling. We saw it in a lot of matches last year with Matt’s back, and this time Nick got to sell his leg after kicking the post, and did a hell of a job. I adored when he couldn’t jump off the ropes for the finish because his leg buckled, that spot ruled. Ortiz and Santana were great here too, they’ve had a ton of good matches this year and worked wonderfully as heels, going after Nick’s leg a ton and being huge dicks towards RNR Express too. Loved that they picked up the big win, and this was a fun opener!

****

NO but Recommended - Adam Page vs PAC

For the most part, I thought this was real good. PAC works wonderfully as a heel, just methodically brutalizing Page and playing up to the crowd as he does it. Eventually this turned into a real fun back and forth match with Page getting some nice spots. I really loved the counter PAC did from the deadeye into his submission finish, which I actually wanted to finish the match. They went too long I think in the end, and Page isn’t the best babyface in peril so the beginning was a bit subdued. Still enjoyed a lot of it though.

***3/4

YES to Riho vs Emi Sakura

I was real happy to see them get the video package before the match to showcase the story, although I wish they did it on TV. Still, these two worked a fabulous match. Sakura was the elder teacher, and her heel work is real fun with how she almost is so endearing with her gimmick it becomes incredibly annoying. Riho continues to be a real great babyface in peril as she got knocked around here. The surfboards was great, I loved all those quick rollups and counters near the end too, and the finish was real nice. A great student vs teacher match!

****

YES to Chris Jericho vs Cody


A wonderful yet simple story told, built up amazingly from all the promos and videos we've seen. Cody put it all on the line, that ramp dive was just nasty, and he had to fight back for most of the match as Jericho just beat him and heeled it up like he’s done so well now, with the added blood being a nice touch. This was much slower paced too, a nice contrast from most of the rest of the show, and it just kept building as it went on. We got the drama of Cody’s parents involved, Hager’s ejection, and some of those near falls were tremendous and some of the best they’ve had in the company so far. The finish I actually really did like given the storyline, and it factored into the turn MJF did too. So the match and post match were both tremendous, and this exceeded the hell out of my expectations. Bravo you two.

****1/2

YES to Kenny Omega vs Jon Moxley

Well then, easily the most violent televised match since Killshot and Dante Fox tried to kill each other through glass off a balcony. Props to these two going through a ridiculous, entertaining, and brutal war full of just insane spots, like all the barbed wire shots, the glass shards (Moxley crawling through them like a goddamn lunatic), Moxley actually being hung on with a chain, Omega faceplanting onto a exposed ring, and of course that suplex into the barbed wire web. They went all out and then some, and it was wildly thrilling to watch, although if anything they went a big long and kinda had some odd pacing at points. Still, props to both dudes for going through this, and I would not have expected Omega to work this kind of match, what a surprise this was!

****1/4

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Yes to:

AEW Full Gear: Cody vs. Chris Jericho

Took a bit to really get going but everything after Cody's face bump on the stage was very well worked. Jericho really worked over Cody, Cody made a great comeback, Cody's mom getting involved was great, had some good near falls, etc. And the finish is something that will have big implications for awhile, even if I don't agree with MJF turning now.

AEW Full Gear: Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley

OK, I won't say I'm a big fan of hardcore type matches like this. But, this was my dream match going in. And the amount of punishment these guys wen threw.....barbwire boards, tables, broken glass, the exposed ring..... I mean my God. Mox literally dragged himself through broken glass at one point.

Again, this wasn't the vision I had of these 2 eventually wrestling each other and I didn't even love all of this match. It kind of lost itself in the middle. But for everything they did to each other, I can't not love this match.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Mox vs Omega ***3/4
Very happy to see a deathmatch make it to the mainstream, even if it wasn't AS violent and fun as a real one. Respect to Kenneth for taking some disgusting bumps and to Mox for ripping his neck open. Went a bit too long for my tastes, but that's current wrestling in a nutshell. Good times nonetheless
