MS-1 is what I like to call a beautiful wrestler. Watching some of his matches is like watching a movie. Its so beautiful and something that can only be capture in old school lucha.

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.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

At first, people was turned off by AAA Attitude era stuff because hardcore matches and lots of dirty finishes and never ending stable wars but somehow some way AAA started to work out the kinks and now its a really good product. I still prefer Pena over the top gimmicks,family friendly product over the Konnan Attitude/ECW version.

CMLL is just a wrestling show with no flow. Nobody in the company knows how to put together a storyline.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Has anyone seen El Zorro vs Jeff Jarrett from TripleMania XIX? Fuck, that's one boring ass match. Jarrett has some good heel antics, but my god it's sooo slow and so boring.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

For the most part I honestly have been very disappointed with the IW boys performances but Jarrett's rank among the top, I can't think of one exciting match he's had since the IW Invasion. Rob Van Dam was pretty good, as was the Beautiful People. Big Rob Terry has been getting a lot of positive feedback for his work and attitude down there.

Double boring considering the 'high octane' intesity of the AAA product. Zorro also looked horrible in that match, a little bloated and totally off his game.
Granted, all these things may have been purposeful in trying to garner heat for JJ, but that doesn't make the match any easier to watch.

In general I don't mind the Impact wrestlers being used as its pretty sparse (usually just the big yearly shows) and makes for some interesting matchups, i.e. Mesias vs AJ and Robby T back to back at Guerra de Titanes.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Meh TNA wreslers in Mexico.

The only thing that matters is that Negro Casas and Blue Panther will have a Hair vs Hair match this weekend and i can't wait to see it.

Also There is a Casas vs La Sombra awesome match 1 or 2 weeks ago, best La Sombra performance in his life.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I really should spend the next week tracking down the whole Negro v Panther feud of 2011/2012. A hair match between the two sounds like a MOTDC and I feel like I should see everything leading to it.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Right now I'm watching Dr. Wagner Jr. vs RVD from TripleMania XIX, much better then Jarrett's match. A couple RVD botches here and there but it's a pretty decent match so far.
