WMOTYC: Cesaro vs. Jinder, WWE Fastlane, 3/5

Nominating this for how it killed the crowd, and was the first time I've heard that much negative reaction for a Cesaro match, and we should've gotten Cesaro/Rusev and Jinder getting smashed into dust by Big Show.

It was a perfectly fine match and it wasn't either of their faults that they were put in that position, so I don't second

I'd second KO vs Goldberg for wmotyc because it was poo poo, boring and a bad wrestling match.

I agree with this, I'm just baffled as to why essentially the same match with Lesnar got a bunch of MOTY nominations. I guess people were really sick of Lesnar's poo poo.

plus what else are you gonna do with Goldberg? If you're that committed to putting him on TV/PPV that's about all you can do at this point. Dude's 50 years old.

If he's not capable of doing more than 20 second matches, maybe just let him squash nobodies and not put the title on him. How many more network subscriptions will Goldberg/Lesnar for the Universal title do vs. just Goldberg/Lesnar, anyway?

Lesnar was built as a monster and so seeing him get squashed was loving rad as hell and totally new, plus he's essentially a part timer so it didn't really matter. Owens getting squashed AND losing the belt was basically a massive wet fart that stole the belt for literally no reason for a fued that in no way needed it, destroyed a main event full time dude AND was the same match AGAIN.

Frankly I would go MOTYC because no match where BRAUN attempts a Superfly Splash should go below a MOTYC but I think HM is more likely.

I've updated the second post with February's nominations as far as I can tell. I haven't counted where people have just talked in general about the match without saying if they think it is Match of the year/Worst of the Year, an HM etc - if I've missed or miscounted anything let me know.

I think you missed Naito/Elgin. It got four nominations, I think that's the minimum?

owens/goldberg wmoty. it made no sense for the ref to wait 10 years for the perfect conditions to ring the bell, and then only actually ring the bell once someone's music has hit and they've started walking toward the ring. distraction finishes suck and distraction finishes abetted by the referee are worse. they could have achieved the same result in any number of more creative ways

WMOTYC: Yuji Nagata vs. Tanga Roa, New Japan Cup 1st Round, 03/11

Roa is just not good at singles matches, and it didn't help that Nagata is kinda past his prime. Also, it dragged on for those 11 minutes. Kinda like Cesaro/Jinder from Fastlane. Really bad match.

HM: Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Evil, New Japan Cup 1st Round, 03/11

Made both of them look strong, didn't bury LIJ at all. Lovely middle with the chairs, and a pretty good gently caress finish too.

I don't see what Ishii added that couldn't be seen in basically any of his other matches and Kenny has at least two well discussed in this thread that was better than this and I think maybe the early morning is to blame for such a high appraisal but on the other hand, I must say emphatically that I love cum.

In what other matches has Ishii done a top-rope frankensteiner? This is a serious inquiry. I wanna see him do more stuff like that.
