Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews
Anyone claiming to love Attitude Era wrestling should be watching the AAA product. It has all the same elements that made the AE great with arguably better wrestling, it's totally over-the-top but 'feels' serious despite the silliness of it all. I enjoy the CMLL product as well, don't get me wrong, but the level of drama and excitement doesn't seem to compare. It's like CMLL is plain vanilla icecream while AAA is Caramel Chocolate Crunch. You know it's too sweet and bad for you but you love eating it anyway cuz it's so fuckin good.
It kinda sucks that here in Canada we don't have access to the Mexican product through regular television, although the internet has made following international/independent wrestling much easier than it was in the 80s & 90s.
I love professional-wrestling.
