Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews
The segunda caida blog in the original post is one of the best wrestling blogs on the net, btw.
IWRG has by far been my favourite promotion this year, and Black Terry Jr's handheld footage is awesome since you actually get to hear the crowd. There's never been any point where I think AAA was all that good, and current day CMLL does nothing for me, either. The only current lucha I can be bothered with is the indy stuff like IWRG and spot shows in scummy ghetto arenas with Navarro and pals. Black Terry is also the best in the world right now. Shameless plug, but I've talked about a bunch of 2010 IWRG in my own blog (link's in my sig), too.
Check out some 1990 and 1997 CMLL. Two of the best years any promotion has ever had. 1990 El Dandy is particularly outstanding. Dude doesn't get much praise at all on here but he's legit a top 5 ever guy for me.
