CheeZe: Well I had absolutely no idea Hikaru Shida had such an intriguing and interesting backstory. I had no clue she got into wrestling after being training to be in a wrestling movie so that was super cool to learn. Without being able to use voiceovers I thought you did a tremendous job of using some text subtitles and the song to tell the story of her journey to AEW. Another fantastic piece of work my friend I think you just ran into a juggernaut.
Rev: I think I gave you more than enough feedback on this thing throughout it`s process but damn man you really outdid yourself with this one. I told you right away I think this is the modern day Her69Eyes GenNext MV and while not quite matching it`s length I think it`s a pretty damn close comparison and I`m glad you embraced it. Loved the song selections, loved the story-telling, and I`ve told you may times but the AJ section is perfect and it was my favorite of the entire video. Phenomenal work my friend!
Winner: You are both winners in this series. It’s honestly amazing the work both of you put into the three match in one event series and I hope you both are proud of the work and dedication you`ve put int because you deserve it. My winner in this match is Rev.
CheeZe Man first off before anything what a cool story that is! And second off what a video this is! As someone who uses a shit ton of V.O. to tell there story and to capture the emotion, I always find it so impressive when someone can come in and use next to none of that and still tell there story so well and make it so easy to follow. Showing her journey from Japan to AEW was quite wonderful, wonderful song selection. And those transitions throughout especially during the title match of her training with actual wrestling footage was wonderful. Fuck me you guys can make bad videos huh? Just another great piece of work bud.
Frank Ocean Thief Man on fucking man, where do I even begin with this absolute masterpiece? Well first off, this is the best MV of the competition and I don't state that as a opinion but as a fact. I mean come on, a Bullet Club video centered around Kanye West Tracks and Frank Ocean sprinkled on top?! How in the absolute hell am I not supposed to fucking love this!! It reminds me of Harmonious Legions PWG The Beattles video. The intro of this video with No Church in the Wild gave me fucking chills. But that Diamonds section absolutely kicked so much fucking ass. Man you really picked the best Ye songs for this video, NEW GOD FLOW COME ON?!?! Love that "Fuck Em" V.O. sync. You also perfectly captured the story and history of Bullet Club, in a 10 minute video that feels like 5. Also loved whats now Franks Track little section with the Tungas. But man that Clique section, the way that came in, the way each new section and song comes in, just like Kanye songs its epic and makes you feel like a fly bad ass, which is what Bullet Club is all about being fly badasses causing havock. Incredible fucking video man, seriously you did your thing on this one. And that ending doe.
Seriously you guys, you both made so many videos for this competition, you all really went all out for the 15th anniversary show and I cant thank you both enough. Fantastic work you guys, both should be incredibly proud for the art you guys created this competition.
Cheeze: Dude I've said this before but I love this video and I've said this before when you like a wrestler a lot it shows so much in your video. The concept itself was cool and I learned something about Shida which was like another layer in that way ddevils videos hits you like not only are you watching a cool music video but your learning at the same time and do that with minimal voice over work is impressive I loved how you linked her training with her wrestling and the dropkick segment to mei over the years was a cool way to highlight her progression, and that knee segment around 2:14 was beautiful my favorite part had to be the links in the title match using her training was so cool there and I'm glad the footage was right for you to do it, it was such a cool full circle type of moment all her training paying off the lessons learned leading her to her world title win.
Rev: Man I've told you how good this is but this is one of the coolest videos I've ever seen initially I was put off by the length but you held my attention the entire time the intros for each member excuse the pun are fire the text work in general was on point especially loved that black and white gradient look you were doing and the red and yellow on the businessman part. it's honestly hard to pick a favorite part at first I wanted to go with AJ like J-Roc but after more watches I really love how you handled Kenny showing the signs toward the end of AJ which also kinda set up the switch to Jay White highlighting Kenny's weak spot for Ibushi and I loved the Bullet Club civil war segment within the Kenny part it had a lot going for it the "Fuck'em" sync had me dyin. I think in the end Jay's section ended up my favorite really dug the flashback to him dropping Kenny helped get a sense of his character like he wanted to be Bullet Club but not Kenny's Bullet Club and the roll call was perfect MR JUICEH makes me chuckle each time needed more pieter tho jk lol. That bit in the outro was hilarious "Who the fuck is david meltzer"
Vote - Rev, Both of these videos are the best videos you could show someone if they asked who is Shida or what is the Bullet Club you highlighted everything that made them, them. And I honestly wish I didn't have to pick between you magnificent work guys.

Cheeze: This video was astonishing, holy shit, I'm not surprised because you always kill it my man but damn what a modafookin ride. The whole beginning with with the TV effect and channel changes to some of her moments like her youtube channel were really neat, especially how you ended it with the interview of that kid asking "why did you decide to become a wrestler?". And then those texts with Sakura(?) effect was such fitting effect for a joshi like Shida. The editing througout is soo hella smooth, and that dropkick sequence to Emi was really slick. Loved how you incorporated her training from that movie "Three Count" and associated them to her wrestling career adding much more to the moves and everything. Man I knew nothing about her this gave such great information thanks to how easy this was to follow, you did a phenomenal job on that, her knee strike on Marufuji and Kana made me so pumped since I know for a those two are damn ass kickers and that makes Shida as big as them. Man I loved how you transitioned her Japan career to AEW with the the entrances. Man, she had to go through a lot to finally bear Nyla Rose and honestly when I thought the video was just already fantastic you added way more with the training scenes and really portayed this David vs Goliath aspect so well with her losing and Nyla being all confident and then you added those clips like it was a Rocky movie or smth at else it gave me that vibe. That was probably my favorite part and damn this is not only a great showcase of her career as as a wrestler, but also how passionate she is for puroresu. This video deserves a lot of praise as for me who doesn't watch AEW or even joshi puro, it made invested and it was incredibly easy to follow and be invested. One of the best MV's of the year IMO.
Rev: Man, your font work is the best I swear. You always use the most fitting letters for everything. That candle/ smoke effect was had such smooth execution. The video started quite in a way and it was the perfect way of introducing BC. Loved the sequence "What's a mob to a king, what's a king to a god, what's a god to a non-believer?" and then you showed White with the IWGP Title. That section was really great and the black and white CC looked beautiful. Loved the Devitt section and Styles sections especially the transition between them, "I got it from here, PRINCE" with once again great looking font. "I'm not a business man I'm a BUSINESS. man" really fits Styles man. Also gotta point out awesome those masks in introduction of the members looked in that fire overlay, fantastic stuff right there. Then..... Omega who I fucking despise the most you gave what was my favorite part.... man that part alone would be been like such a masterpiece to be talked about..... everything from that is simply a masterpiece of work. What made it the most epic part IMO were the fantastic clip selections and lyrical syncs you got going... man I kinda am wondering if Bullet Club is inspired by Kanye or wtv tf ahah. Just gonna point the moments from that because damn there too many subtle things. 5:17, 5:29 (write it in bold letters THE ELITE), 5:42, 6:26, 6:29, Fuck em lyric sync, 6:55, 7:00 and 7:06. Loved how you did the turn in that beautiful white CC and honestly after listening to the song, that voiceover of Tama saying "We are G.O.D" hit different. As for White I thought everybody did a fantastic job but won't talk too much about that. Overall, this is one of my favorite MV of the year.
Vote: Man it took me so long to decide but honestly, even though I thought Rev's video was magnificent and superbly edited, cheeze's was as well and gave me a lesson, so I will go with Cheeze on this one. Magnificent match guys.
First I want to thank you guys for your effort, you made this entire competition so much more fun! Your matches truly feel like a celebration of editing and I am a bit sad this is your last match of the competition lol.
Cheeze: Just the amount of love and care put into this is incredible! This just felt like a beautiful documentary about Shida. How she got into pro wrestling, trained and learned in her path to being a champion. I just really love that subtle progression and how you gave time to every aspect you introduced. Sync is on point and in many ways creative like light changing during her entrance. Overall before this video I didn't watch too much of Shida but not only you made me interested but you also introduced me to her so well that I feel already like I know already I should know to just enjoy her matches! Ending was just beautiful and I love how you made it come full circle with her promo about wanting to face everyone. Really enjoyable and just majestic video!
Rev: Finally a Bullet Club music video with personality! Not only with personality but with a ton of it! Man just the length you went to showcase every phase of the group and personality of everyone is admirable. Really love the intro with smoke, it's so beautiful with seamless transitions and transition between personalities of leaders were just spot on! Song choices were just perfect and every different phase of Bullet Club just felt unique! You didn't miss any single important moment in history of the club which is just insane considering how long they have been around and what all they have done! Also that Cody voiceover was so creepy, I love it! This is the video that people should watch if they want to learn about the club without a doubt! This is like I already said a masterpiece!
Both of you created just extraordinary videos and this IMO is your best match out of 3, absolutely incredible considering how many videos you have made. Again thank you for creating art, I watched your videos a dozen times already and I for sure will watch them more! No matter who wins this match, both of you guys are winners and you should be proud!
CheeZe: Pretty sure I told you this already, but this is my favorite video from you. Your Overdose video will always be your best edited video, and the Nightmare video is probably your most creative work, but this feels so different from all your videos. I feel like it's a lot more ambitious, and if someone was to tell me who edited this, I would've never guessed it was you. And I don't mean that in a offensive way, but most of your edits consist of spectacular effects and just innovative way of editing, while this feels more relaxed, yet so fun to watch over and over again! Can't tell you how many times I've watched this since you uploaded it! I think I watched this just as many times as I watched Reed's MMV. Speaking of MMV's, this can honestly pass of as one lol. It includes various clips from the films Shida was in. I found the combination of adding her acting work to this very unique. I honestly didn't even know she was an actress before her wrestling career. So that's very interesting and it's a fun fact about her. But yeah, those film clips added a lot to this since it's always a breath of fresh air when wrestling MV's step outside the wrestling world in some kind of way. The whole video is flawless IMO. The intro with the TV effect was a fun and exciting way to start this off. Kind of showing a small recap of what the video will be about. And the voice overs from her interview were perfect. All the clips from the film were perfectly placed. As Shida continues to train as a wrestler, the viewer starts realizing how much she enjoys it, and it eventually follows with the "you really love pro wrestling, don't you?" line which is perfect way to get into her wrestling career. One of my favorite things that you did with these film clips is that you kind of used them as flashbacks or ways she was progressing as a wrestler - with her doing a wrestling move in a wrestling match inspired by something she did in her training from the film. With no effects, nor any crazy or spontaneous editing, this kind of reminded me of a short documentary. Especially since the camera work from some of these clips and the facial expressions you chose look very beautiful. This whole video has such a different aesthetic to it, that I haven't seen in any video. It kind of feels nostalgic, probably cause of the old footage, and the song too, This song was outstanding btw. The fast paced editing in the AEW section was really pumping me up. Especially when you cover her match with Nyla, the flashbacks to her training were incredible. I love it so much! Really goes to show how far she's come! And the last clip with her getting teary and screaming about how much she looks forward to continue her wrestling career was too perfect and emotional! Superb work CheeZe. Thanks for the hard work and outstanding videos you put out for this event.
Rev: Like everyone's said, this is a goddamn masterpiece! Probably the greatest wrestling MV I've seen. The structure is just unbelievable. The way every act transitions from one to the other is smooth AF. And all 3 acts have such a different vibe to them, with the songs perfectly fitting that vibe. The first one has such an epic ambient to it, which characterizes that era of BC very well. BC looked so damn cool when it first started out. They really looked like a damn mob, especially since it started with 4 members and then ended up being with like 12 members in the AJ era. With the 2nd act it felt more dark and depressing matching the conflict and civil wars going on from 2016-2018. I guess you can consider it to be the dark times of BC, even though I honestly found it to be more fun lol. Loved how you smoothly incorporated Omega and Cody's rivalry into that act. Using the Okada V Omega 2 match to introduce that feud was brilliant! Then going straight to Ibushi's involvement in to the feud was neat. Same goes for the transition to the hatred OG BC had against The Elite. The way you just kept going back and forth with the BC conflicts is on another level of editing. The 2nd act was probably my favorite act from the 3. However, the 3rd act is so damn fun, and it's so enjoyable to watch a ton of times. Once again BC has no conflict inside the group, bringing more happy and party vibes from the clique. Including clips from Pieter brought this video to another level hehe. But yeah, those clips of her were phenomenal. And even the editing was a lot more fun in this act. It had various of zoom in/out and swish pan transitions, as well as white flashes that were pretty looking! Big fan of a lot of the voice overs used throughout the video, with each one serving a purpose for transitions, to explain conflicts, and to introduce newer members of the group. That voice over with Jay White naming all the members was lovely as it shows how he's more of a better team leader than the last ones from the 2nd act. It also shows that every member is important to the group. I also appreciate how you showcased almost every member of BC, and not just focusing on the main members of the group. Man, I really love how out of the box this is. Incorporating other editors into this project was wonderful. Love how my bois Storm and Stylopz were a part of this. Really shows how much trust you have for the editors on the board, and you gave them a chance to showcase their editing skills in this big epic video of yours. This is a damn film man hehe. This is highly influential just like all of your videos, and I'm definitely going to be ripping off some of the stuff you did in here into my future projects lol. Hoping to see a EVIL vid in the future! Thanks to you too for dedicating your time to create many beautiful videos for our enjoyment!
Yep, this is the best Main Event that I've seen and one of my favorite matches ever. Both videos were so mesmerizing and all three matches were epic. Thanks to the both of you for going all out for this event. And thanks to you guys, Paroxysm, beej, and anyone else who worked hard to put this event together full of a variety of things that were fun like the Zone V retrospective, Rev's essays on some of the lovely editors from the past 15 years, and this 4 week competition. Favorite MVZone event I've been a part of!

Cheeze: Watching a successful edit of a successful woman was really fun. You recapped pretty much her whole career in an amazing way and it was only 4 minutes long, which is really impressive. I also really liked the transition at 1:10, it was the perfect way to switch to her wrestling career. Overall this was a really great video, I loved it!
Rev: This is one of the best music videos I have ever seen, I still can't believe it's 10 minutes long. First of all, the smoke overlay and text in the intro was amazing, it looks incredibly professional. The fire overlay and the amazing text you used to introduce a member was a really nice touch. The editing was insanely good, also I loved how you decided to make the last part a MEP. This was perfect man, 10 minutes of flawless editing.
CheeZe: This was some next level creativity from you, and I loved every second! The TV/VHS effect looked wonderful, and more importantly was completely appropriate. There has been so much Japanese music in this competition, and I love it. The editing was great of course, and the visual storytelling was perfect. I loved the transitions between the film and her matches (i.e. Shida running in the Nyla match). And closing out the video with that particular dialogue from her film was a wonderful touch. Great work!
Rev: I'm not sure what the ethics are behind having guest editors contributing to a singles video, but since your opponent was apparently one of the guests, I'd imagine he was okay with it. That being said, LONG LIVE THE EMBASSY! I appreciated a Bullet Club history lesson - once it became such a phenomenon, I think people forgot that they had a pretty storied history prior to The Elite guys. So the storytelling aspects of this were fantastic! All of it was really fantastic actually. My favorite thing about the whole video were the lyric syncs though. There were so many of them, and each one was so precise! It's hard to pick a favorite among those, but the "Human beings in a mob. What's a mob to a king? What's a king to a god? What's a god to a nonbeliever?" set up everything you were about to present in the most perfect way possible. Even if you stripped away every other storytelling aspect of the video, that part right there was enough to say it all. Job well done sir!
You both should be very proud of this Best of Three series. You did something special, and it ranks as one of the greatest matches in the site's history!
Cheeze - Loved it. Structurally, this was just about perfect. Had no idea about Shida's backstory, and you covered in a great manner. From the intro, ending on the "why did you decide to become a wrestler" cliffhanger. The tv effect was cool, and really liked the title card as well. Her movie career and the wrestling movie was covered very well, and I loved how you transitioned from her learning and hitting basic moves in the movie, to her hitting the same moves in the ring. Also liked that you focused exclusively on her hitting these basic movies first as a novice, then later expanding her moveset with her current signature spots. Lovely. Great job introducing her style and then covering her AEW run. And the song is so damn catchy. City Pop forever!
rev - First off, I'm so happy that we are already writing Marty Scurll out of the history books. Secondly, I'm so mad at you for making me watch a 10 minute Bullet Club video and loving it because you're just so damn good at what you do. This was all the hallmarks of a classic rev video. Lovely text, great song choice, super pretty effects, super polished editing. And this definitely is an epic undertaking, spanning I don't even know how many years, and succinctly telling the story of the entire BC run, without any downtime, any fat that could be trimmed, and all edited on the same incredibly high level. The fire text is beautiful, lots of great lyric synches (Jay White as the non-believer, I got it from here, the clips of GOD perfectly cut to Kanye's grunts and whatnot). Great song choices. Basically, you could easily have entered this as four separate MVs, over the span of a year or whatever, and they all would have gotten rave reviews. Lovely smoke effect too. The Jay White voice over clips just namedropping all the BC members were integrated so well into the song that it took me until the sixth name to figure out it wasn't part of the song! And again, highest of praise for making me feel stoked about a ten minute BC video. Nobody else could pull that off.
Winner - THis is so damn tough. Incredible match, both brought their A games, resulting in two very different, but equally great videos. Cheeze's video just connected with me more and is the one I'll probably be rewatching countless times
Cheeze: This was great, super creative stuff. The seamless transitions from film to her actual wrestling footage was so smooth. I'm actually really glad you left out any CC because it really wasn't needed so props to you for that. This is what I really expect from you, something super clean and an idea that most wouldn't touch or really think of. The ending of the video was the perfect climax and really came full circle. Great work.
Rev: Jesus, I'ma just get it out of the way now and say this is my favorite video to release in the last 5 years or so and really gets me excited for editing again. The way you were able to transition from section to section and connect everything is incredible. So many incredible moments such as the "FUCK EM" part, the grunting from GOD, all of the lyrical syncs. Something that you never really did in your previous videos is really go in on the effects but this right here was so clean, that's something you noticeably improved on recently. The way you were able to introduce a new character into the mix was really something else. The fact that you even took the extra step to add in the EVIL part at the end is something other people wouldn't have done. Really perfect execution here, I really don't think this could have been any better.
Props to the both of you for editing so many incredible videos for this competition! I really don't understand how you guys did it.
Cheeze - This was super cool and unique. A topic that I'm sure very few actually knew about--including myself. The intro made perfect sense with the TV. Effects weren't really needed much in this one, so I don't disagree with the choice to leave them out. It wasn't anything flashy, over-edited, or even crazy concept-wise. It was just a unique look into a topic and creatively simplifying it into a video. So great job on that. I really loved how smooth the transition was from acting to wrestling--by going back and forth with the movies and her early days as a wrestler and then just going into her career. Really nice stuff.
Rev - Alright, Chris Jericho, calm down. We get you had a lot of down time because of the lock down but jesus, Bert. This is your master piece. When I first watched it and saw it was 10 minutes I was about to slap you for making it so long, and after it was over I questioned why it was done so early. That intro was so perfect--what's with you and making such great intros? I think the Devitt and Styles sections were definitely the best. They blended so beautifully, and the lyrical syncs in the Styles section were so smooth. I think the last three sections seemed a little forced together--like three seperate videos, but as a whole video, it was still fantastic. Your editing is getting better the older you get, and your effects are starting to get stronger (Did that one time hray said you suck at effects 5 years ago hurt your feelings?). Any way, I'm excited to see what more you bring once you hit 50. That's where you'll truly shine.
Vote - A really fantastic three matches you guys had this competition. I truly feel like Cheeze decided to just have fun and stay simple, while Bert said we can all go fuck ourselves and he's taking the site over. Well done, guys. Vote goes to Bertimax.
What an insane series. It goes without saying you two are two of the very best editors here on the board. Well done, I've been blown away by your videos and this was a perfect way to cap off an excellent series. I'm tired as shit, so if my feedback's not substantial I apologize.
Rev - "WHO THE FUCK IS DAVEY MELTZER?". I'm blown away by the way you captured the history of BC well and I'm a big Kanye fan. My entertainment of BC kind of dwindled when they split into two factions, but this video helped my view on it. Giving the later members like ELP and KENTA only a mention was fine by me, as you highlighted the major players. Not much else to say really, awesome effects and the story told was fantastic. That EVIL tease at the end got me giddy.
CheeZe - Very cool intro! I forget the kid interviewer's name but that little dude's been all over the place, surprised he made it into an MV! Had no idea Shida was originally an actress, and I thought it was pretty cool how you showed she used her moves on the big screen to the squared circle. Not a lot of effects but I figure that's help not blend the movies and wrestling together too much. Very fun video!
