The WWC match isn't anything special at all. Definitely don't think it flows real well, in fact I thought it was way choppier than I remembered. I honestly don't recall anything about it that'd put it on par with the fifteenth best El Dandy match from 1990. No offense, but "it gets hate because it's famous" is a pretty bullshit talking point. It "gets hate" because it's just not that good.
Negro Navarro & Black Terry v Los Traumas (UWE, 8/27/11)
- This is only the third match I've seen from these guys this year, and I think the last one was way back in April, but the Traumas (particularly II) are still two of my favourite guys in wrestling. Thought the II/Terry opening mat section was a bit too exhibitiony, but there's a few great moments, like II condescendingly patting Terry on the back after he beats him in an exchange, Terry looking at Navarro like "is your kid mocking me?" and Navarro just shrugging like "eh, you've got sons too, you know how they are." Then Navarro and Trauma I get in there and T1 just slaps the fucking TASTE out of his old boy's mouth. Trauma II is a total shitkicker and even he seems taken aback by this, and Terry is great coming in like "hey hey hey...that's your old man, kid. Was that really necessary?" Navarro's dazed, stumbling sell of it is totally spectacular; Fujiwara-ish, even. The way he tries to rip his son's arm out the socket for his bullshit is why Navarro >*. Not on the level of Virus/Maya Jr. (which is a legit worldwide MOTYC, not just limited to lucha), but this was still some really good shit.
