Re: Must Watch Lucha Libre Matches?
There's a 10 minute 'lightning' match on youtube from January, pretty much just a teaser of what they could do without going too long compared to the Hair vs Hair match. Panther adds one of the most unique touches to an ankle lock I can ever recall seeing.
FWIW, that Hair vs Hair match is pretty much the opposite of what you associate a good hair vs hair match to be. Usually its a bloody brawl that looks like its straight out of Memphis or Mid South, but I really dug how they took their feud of one upsmanship and placed into the biggest match of the feud and made it all about being bested by the other, but losing so much more than if it was just a regular match.
Casas/La Sombra from February is another classy Casas performance, this time in a title match.
Santo/Villano IV vs Solitario/Angel Blanco TXT 2/25 is still the Lucha MOTY imo. So much hate filled brawling, hot crowd, Santo and Villano being the most spectacular babyface asskickers, Solitario and Blanco being straight up ruthless rudos and a tremendous finish.
