Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Lucha for me go back to the early 90's, than we started to see luchadores in ECW,WCW and WWE that it was hard to miss. But I didn't become a hardcore fan until around 2004 when I stumble across an indy lucha match featuring Abismo Negro,La Park or La Parka forgot which one,and two other guys in a cage match. It wasn't an awesome match but I was intrigue by everything around it. Mistico/UG rivalry, Billy Boy/Gran Apache, Mistico/Perro rivalry just blew me away. The rest is history.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

It was the WCW/AAA collaboration When Worlds Collide in 94 that really introduced me to lucha libre. Octagon/Santo vs Barr/Guerrero stands out as a great match but the entire show was enjoyable. I remember being fascinated with a completely new avenue to explore as a pro wrestling fan.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I hate Hijo Del Santo as a person who trying to hurt his father name but he is still a great wrestler and performer. Angel Blanco Jr./El Hijo del Solitario vs. El Hijo Del Santo/Villano IV, TXT 2/25/12 is a great lucha brawl and classic Hijo Del Santo.

This was the first time, when lucha libre was introduced to American audience.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

A huge fan of the annual Rey de Reyes tournament. Been enjoying the matches this year immensly, AAA has a pretty deep roster and the four-ways are a great way to start new feuds leading into Triplemania. I kinda like how the last couple of years the tourney has been aired on television over several weeks as opposed to the one big event.

From any time and any wrestler???

Negro Casas vs Hijo del Santo from 1987 and Villano IV vs Atlantis from 2000 are easy recomendations they are in youtube. Both of them are two of the greatest matches from all time.

But if you say wich luchadores you like if you have seem some lucha, maybe I could recomend more.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

*Ugh, I can't believe that AAA is trying for yet another Psicosis after the fail that was Psicosis III. Whatever, II ain't bad but the original is still the best and I doubt they let him take the mask again.

*I'm" so glad to see Teddy Hart back in AAA, it looks like he resolved his problems with Konnan and The Penas so that's good.

*Man Argenis is lucky to be Mistico's cousin, not saying he is bad because he's not but those blood ties are definitely helping his push.

*Not surprised in the slightest that my boy Perro Jr. won Rey De Reyes this year he's been the MVP of AAA other than Evans and possibly Wagner.

*I wouldn't mind it if Perro Jr. won the AAA Heavyweight Title; I don't really care El Mesias that much anymore so his title win did nothing for me but it's a step up from Jarrett I guess as he really didn't do anything exciting with the belt.
