Re: The 2019 MOTYC Thread
Rocky vs. Ospreay deserves some love, indeed. I was dreading the concept of them going 25 minutes, but goddamn they actually killed it. The match built pretty well throughout the whole duration of it, and then in the finishing stretch of the last 5-7 minutes of it, it all clicked big time w/ Rocky getting a few TREMENDOUS nearfalls, fantastic counters, the crowd going crazy, the one last armbar by Rocky.. So much good stuff there. Also hats off to Caprice Coleman who added a lot with his pure passion on commentary regarding Rocky almost pulling off the upset. It's definitely gonna be remembered as one of the highlights of the 2019 BOSJ and rightfully so.
***1/2 so not quite getting a nomination from me, but it's the best match of the tourney so far w/ Tiger Mask's matches vs. Kanemaru & TAKA rounding up the top-3.
