Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

So I watched Negro Casas/El Dandy from July 92 last night and man alive was that amazing. It's a shame that wrestling fans seem to picture lucha as this mindless spotfest thing that's a couple notches below Dragon Gate when it's really quite the opposite. This match only had a couple missile drop kicks from Casas and El Dandy climbed the top rope to land on Casas on the outside and that was around the half hour mark. The rest of the match was some of the best mat work int he history of wrestling.

What I love about lucha mat work is that they are scientifically very sound, have some of the most innovative submissions and counters and are able to keep it incredibly entertaining and not dull at all whereas in the U.S. a lot of wrestlers struggle to keep the mat sections of their matches entertaining.
