Right, so I haven't followed Lucha religiously since the epic Casas/Panther match (for shame, I know) but something about this caught my eye. It could possibly be due to myself being an over-zealous Mascarita fan but I'll rather side with an explanation that keeps my fanboyism secret and say it's because of Cubsfan that I watched this.

Now I can't go out on record, like he did, and say "not only is this one of the best minis matches but also one of the best trios matches all year" due to my inexperience with Lucha as of late but I cannot overstate how great the work here is.

On the one hand you have an excellent rudo dynamic peppering the majority of the match with just the right amount of técnico brilliance to help push the feud over. As always, Mascarita bumped like a Mexican Dolph Ziggler in this match due to the size concession he gives the other minis. The way he's manhandled and just ragdolls around from simple moves is just lolworthy. Dinastía, however, once again stole the spotlight despite still being so young. His plethora of new yet crazy moves never seems to end.

If you're going to watch any lucha (especially any minis action) this year, I cannot see why this shouldn't be one of your first go-to's. Almost as balls-crazy and immersive as anything else this year. It's just how a minis match should be.
