Kento Miyahara vs KAI Jan 03 - ****1/4

Superb Kento banger to start the year off. Love the opening and the middle with the heel shtick from Kento. Pulls off the arrogance better than so many.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Oh BABY. It didn't take for 2019 to start busting out the BANGERS

Liger & Tiger Mask vs. Ren Narita & Yuya Uemura from the Fanfest gets a YES.

I love me some young lion vs. established wrestlers matches, and this one delivered in SPADES. Right from the get go during introductions when Liger threw his mighty cape at Narita, I knew this was gonna be GOOD. The two have some neat technical exchanges to start the match off - Narita gets some time to shine, but it's mostly Liger, and it's goddamn awesome. Liger still wrestles on the mat with such sense of REALNESS & tightness it's amazing. He just stretches the poor young lad, and after a while of that, Tiger & Uemura get the tags, and fucking TIGER JUST STARTS KICKING THE CRAP OUT OF UEMURA. Uemura has some great young lion-fire & some really well timed I-AM-FIRED-UP-roars, but even though he keeps trying to fight back, TIGER JUST KEEPS ON GODDAMN KICKING & SLAPPING HIM. It's SO great. Uemura gets a little comeback in, but that is shut down pretty quickly as TIGER DELIVERS A GODDAMN DEVASTATING KICK TO THE LIVER. Uemura sells it amazingly, and Tiger delivers another one just for the fun of it before tagging in Liger. Liger comes in & immediately throws Uemura out of the ring so he can start whipping him into the guardrail. It looks brutal as hell & Uemura's selling is really great, once again. When they're back inside the ring, Uemura gets to make the hot tag to Narita - Narita runs wild for a sec, and then puts Liger on the young lion classic, the Boston Crab. Liger's selling of this is so outstanding - he gave Narita so much and made it look like he barely survived by reaching the ropes. Bless that man. Liger then tags to Tiger, still selling his back like the legend he is, and Tiger comes & starts SLAPPING the taste out of Narita's mouth. Narita makes the tag to Uemura, who looks pretty rough during the hot tag, but those elbows he delivered to grounded Tiger Mask were AWESOME. The youngsters run wild on the grumpy old veterans for a while, but then Tiger catches Uemura w/ a leglock, and it looks like he is really trying to rip his leg off, aka exactly how submission holds should look like! Tiger kicks the soul out of Uemura some more, and there's some great facial expressions by him as it goes on; in particular the look he had on his face after Uemura kicked out of his big headkick was amazing - "this piece of shit youngster just kicked out of THAT? What the fuck?" & then he goes & delivers the Tiger Driver for the pinfall victory, and his facial expression was so great as he does that; he's like "can't believe this goddamn teenager made me use THIS to finish him". If you love GRUMPY OLD MEN, and I mean who doesn't, this is a must watch. Liger & Tiger for tag champs 2k19.

SO GOOD. Gonna be hard for anything tomorrow to top it.

@Donnie YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR TASK IS.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Good shout, @NastyYaffa ;

No but recommended: Jushin 'Thunder' Liger & Tiger Mask vs. Ren Narita & Yuya Uemura ***3/4

Tiger Mask slapping the taste out of Uemura's mouth was pure joy .

Great fire shown by the Young Lions too. . Promising stuff. And grumpy old men wrestling is always a treat too.

Jushin 'Thunder' Liger & Tiger Mask vs. Ren Narita & Yuya Uemura

**3/4

Liger is FIFTY FOUR years old, and he still rules. GOAT. I enjoyed this, but it didn't blow me away at all. Watching the old men kick the snot out of the kids was good fun, especially Uemura, who kind of sucks. Really bad elbows and forearms from him, hopefully over time he gets better. Fun finishing run, and it great to see Uemura get murdered.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Liger's mannerisms big leaguing the rookies are the best, but Tiger Mask legit always wants to murder them in every match. God dammit, I love it. Young Lions were having great matches peppered throughout last year, the same type of trend should continue.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

I don't usually watch much Young Lion stuff, but I did check out this one.

NO but Recommended - Jushin Thunder Liger & Tiger Mask vs. Ren Narita & Yuya Uemura - NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 13 Fanfest

I don't know what kind of mood Tiger Mask woke up in, but jesus he was all sorts of pissed off in this match. He beat the holy hell out of Uemura, it felt like he was laying into some of those kicks at times. After that, all four of them defintely started to have beef with one another, even Liger got in on Tiger Mask's hate train with how he was whipping Uemura into the guardrails. Both Narita and Uemura looked very promising, especially with some of their selling. But yeah, this was fun as hell, and I'm totally on board with Yaffa's idea of having the grumpy old men go for the tag titles.

***3/4

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

Triple Crown Championship: Kento Miyahara (c) vs. KAI (AJPW 1/3) **** (YES!)
https://www.bilibili.com/video/av39864539

Hell yes, the effort and intensity here were great. Both guys looked super motivated and Korakuen was rockin. Kento's leg selling is subpar (per usual tbh) and that's the only downfall but man the finishing stretch was amazing and honestly the whole match held my attention. The finish itself is a tremendous visual. Welcome to 2019!!

Prediction is the Meltz gives minimum 5 stars to Ibushi/Ospreay, Ishii/Zack and Kenny/Tana.

Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread

About to watch the Triple Crown match. Super sigh at terrible limb selling though. That could totally kibosh the match for being worth a damn because you know, why work a limb for any part of the match if you just want to do a bunch of flashy moves? Kento please.
