El Hijo Del Santo vs Negro Casas
EMLL; 1997/09/09


My first taste of lucha and I enjoyed it for the most part. There are parts of lucha that I can't say I'm a fan of, such as the uncooperative matwork and execution of moves. It just made the beginning mat sequences quite dull and some of the moves looked sloppy. Guess I'm going to have to get use to that if I want to get into lucha.

The stiffness and intensity of the strikes from both men really made the match. Even before they lock-up for the first time, Negro kicks away at Santo's leg and he sells it like death (possibly even over-doing it but it made it clear that Santo has a major weakness, so I guess it's okay). Santo tries to keep Negro grounded but he's not having this and viciously goes for Santo's leg. Negro was great at this and got a lot of heat from the crowd for not only ruthlessly attacking the babyface hero, but also for his great facial expressions and how he carried himself in general. He looked like a real dickhead.

Santo eventually says 'fuck this' to his plan to keep his opponent grounded and unleashes stiff punches and kicks on Negro and things are now more even. The crowd goes nuts as this and proves Santo's comeback a success. A few of Santo's aerial attacks felt a tad unnecessary though.

I'm too high on the finish. Santo goes for a camel clutch but Negro struggles and Santo just switches to the armbar and gets the win. The struggle seemed quite pointless and add on top of that a lack of near-falls and I'd say the finish felt out of place.

A good introduction to lucha, overall.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Spent the better part of the day listening to Konnan and Court Bauer on MLW Radio. Looks like it's going to be another big year for LA Park and I'm interested to see if Teddy Hart can keep his shit together and put on some decent matches in his feud with Evans. With the current roster and direction in AAA, I have no doubts that this year's Triplemania will have stacked card and be a phenomenal show.

Really enjoying Octagon as a rudo. Feels fresh and he seems reinvigorated visibly putting effort into heel antics, whereas his technico routine had become second nature.

Agreed, I remember saying some months back that after being a technico for his entire run I wasn't sure if he could be able to pull it off but he has done very well in his role and is seemingly motivated to be a believable and effective rudo.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I haven't watched any new lucha show for a month now. Does anybody know where can I download new CMLL shows? Or maybe AAA or Perros del Mal, or any other lucha libre show? Please.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I just watch on Youtube most of the time. WarriorsX2000 is pretty good about uploading the weeklies quickly. Can find AAA, PDM, CMLL and Todo X El Todo on that channel.

When I post here, I try to relate one or two of my most poignant observations with the current product. This week I found myself thinking what a great character Nicho Millianario has become, much more flexible story-wise than the original Psicosis gimmick.

Also, I've seen several posters on the forum mention how much they've been enjoying Rush and I gotta admit the kid has a look and works at an acceptable level, he's just not a character you'd ever catch me cheering for personally. I don't like Adonis archetypes myself, but I understand their appeal.

Yeah. Rush is my favourite current luchador. He is big, muscular, yet can still work highflying lucha libre style. And he's very young
