Default Brushless upgrade on Madspeed.

I bought a Hobbywing Brushless motor and a new no name 120 ESC for my Madspeed Drift King.
It said the ESC was for a Hobbywing. I probably should have gone with the more expensive Hobbywing brand.
So, it does not work. The motor just shakes back and forth.
I have noticed the wiring color code is backward on the ESC from the Motor. The motor is A=blue B=yellow and C=orange.
The ESC is A=orange B=yellow and C=Blue.
I hate to experiment and ruin something.
Question is: Do all the Brushless motors and ESC have a common color code? Do I have a bad one? Is it important to match brand names?
Thank you.
