I know right? It's b/c the only real luchadores they decided to push was Mysterio & Guerrera. I know Eddie & Konnan were there, but they were there before the major influx and rose up the ranks. More so for Eddie since he was actually involved with the Cruiserweights.

All the rest were there purely for the fun filler matches. Psychosis got a championship reign. Lasted like 3 days.

Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

It does suck that La Parka never got it, but he was pretty big for a cruiserweight. El Dandy never got it either!

Long live Psicosis' 3 day reign!

Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

I thought I was gonna have to bust out the EL DANDY mention here. Appears not. EL DANDY.

Best thing to do is get super high and watch all of the lucha trios and atomicos matches within WCW. You'll see them fly around and all that good shit. You'll be blown away x100. For example this is one I watched when I did it:



The part when El Dandy splats on the outside was the funniest moment of my life. EL DANDY.

I can't think of El Dandy without thinking about this promo:



Who are you to doubt El Dandy?

Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?

I like how that promo is meant to slam El Dandy only I'm sure Bret was actually putting him over. Maybe.

Either way that was the best Bret Hart promo I've ever seen. Dissing DEAN owned too.

Re: WCW Discussion Thread because people get asshurt about JUST RUSSO

I kid you not, La Parka was always my favorite Cruiserweight (just trying to prove I'm not jumping on the bandwagon). I loved his costume and that guy could put on a wicked show. And he played guitar with a steel chair.

I dunno about you guys, but as great as the Cruiserweights were, I always felt they...botched a lot. Especially Super Calo. I can't remember ever seeing a match where he didn't fuck up at least once.

My favorite cruiserweight feuds in WCW were Rey/Psychosis and Rey/Kidman. Best title run ever was Chris Jericho in '98, though.

Bandwagon or not it's all good. La Parka is the man.

I don't remember too many botches with the good ones. I know they happened from time to time. Nothing no wrestler is immune from. The latter years, yeah, they were there. Kids were young though so I wasn't surprised.
