Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews
I'm currently trying to get myself to watch more lucha and I think RudoReels' Lucha Sampler is the obvious place to start.

Rey Mysterio Jr, Super Calo, & Winners vs Psicosis, Heavy Metal, & Picudo - AAA 1/29/1993
Heavy Metal was great in this. He cuts off the ring and stops the babyface from making the tag. Mysterio was Mysterio and you get what you always would out of him here. I did find myself somewhat bored in the first 10-15 minutes and the lucha matwork still hasn't full grown on me yet. I'm not sure what I don't like about it, but I think my distaste for it is slowly fading away. Anyways, the match gets going in the final 10 minutes and it's good stuff. I love the dive exchanges at the end of each fall and it never looked too coo-operated or anything.
La Parka vs Cibernetico - Mask vs Mask - AAA TripleMania XII 6/20/2004
What in the actual fuck was this? You get about 5 minutes of abysmal in-ring brawling before a huge clusterfuck ensures. A bunch of heels run down to attack La Parka before some faces come to the save and they all wind up in the street in a high-speed chase before one bastard ends up driving into the ringside arena on a motorcycle. Add in some fireball spots and that sums up this carnage. Makes '98 WWF look like World of Sport in comparison. Shit wrestling, but quite fun to sit through.
