Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews
The only criticisms that I've read thrown at IWRG is that it might be "too technical" and I don't know if I agree. Some of the best matches from them have incredible heat and brawling in it.
I have to repeat myself once more, lucha brawls are the best in my opinion. I think they keep to the old school method of keeping them brutal and short. When I mean brutal, I don't mean CZW or Big Japan type stuff but what would look like a barroom brawl. I think a lot of promotions these days get the brawls wrong as they [ROH and others as a big example] have overly long brawls and it takes away the realism. I've never heard of a brawl being 20+ minutes long and being any good. Memphis also got it right.
