Sting vs Mesias last year was OK from a North American fan perspective, but it was definitely one of Mesias' weaker matches. I would be inclined to agree that the inclusion of TNA talent is more about reaching out to fans across the border than appealing to the Mexican audience.

Angle vs Park could be fantastic work-wise though.

The things La Park and Angle could do would be crazy.

From what I understand, they try to get Angle before but the price was high. TNA must charge more for Angle than Sting.

I feel like they really trying to pull out all the stops this year. New Arena, 20th Triplemania. Two of the biggest names in lucha in the main event(maybe the biggest since Mistico is in the WWE and Hijo Del Santo fell off). I know this will probably end of the biggest grossing event in company history due to high ticket prices but it's TRIPLEMANIA, people will pay. There's Wrestlemania,NJPW annual January Tokyo Dome show and then Triplemania.

Thumbs up, two blue-chippers and potential superstars in a hard hitting affair for a major title. I liked it better than Devitt/Volador despite being spot-heavy and story-light (pretty simple power/strength vs speed/agility). Very quick pace but manages to come off as very clean and technically sound. Rojo's multiple powerbomb variations really made this match for me, I hope to see him featured very prominently heading forward.

Tried watching this match, was a real struggle and I just couldn't do it, everything felt so light and floaty, cool powerbombs but nothing really had any impact. Just felt weak.

Fair enough, I suppose it would depend on what one was comparing it with. Within the realm of CMLL and their presentation it was a nice tidy match, hard hitting as oppose to most trios action, but nowhere near the level of say Casas/Panther. There seems to be a tradeoff in lucha where upping the impact can add to the excitement but detracts from the stylized approach. Finding a good balance isn't a particularly easy feat.

Yeah, I never watched much Lucha..... At all. Figured I'd give it a try, that style just isn't for me I guess. I think it it's not going to be hard hitting, then it should be some wild spot fest.

Will have to try and get onto some more.

Any recommendations, isn't much to go off, but maybe a match that isn't like that one? I feel like that is more of a match for a real Lucha fan, not someone trying to get into it.

For years, I've been touting AAA product to anyone who'll give me the time of day. It has an Attitude Era/ECW feel/approach with very gimmicky booking/writing. The in-ring product is also a lot more aggressive but there's a trade-off in that it becomes clustered or sloppy looking at times.

At present the roster consists of some of the best workers in Mexico, particularly if you're looking for a puro/lucha hybrid. I'd recommend matches featuring Dr. Wagner Jr., LA Park or El Mesias. Their matches tend to have a 'big match' atmosphere, a combination of mat work and high risk, great psychology and plenty of spots.

Oh yeah, from hat I hve seen I think I would be WAY more into AAA, just more familiar with the roster as they get around in other companies a hell of a lot more. I remember enjoying the stuff with D-Genertion Mex & Hart Foundation 2.0

Might have to check out more AAA now that I am thinking about it.
