Leaving this here.

Máscara Dorada, Mistico, Titán Vs Averno, Ephesto, Mephisto
CMLL on CadenaTres: 2013-01-12



I may not have watched this yet but, going by who is in it, I don't think this should be a waste of anyone's time while we wait for FastasticaMania to be uploaded. NJPW has Ki as Hitman, CMLL has Mephisto as Bane. Oh, and Máscara Dorada.

SMOOTH~!

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Yep, I'm pretty interested in the Nakamura/Sombra bout. Styles clash right there. Wonder how it turned out. Got to check those events out when they're uploaded. Hopefully on youtube or dailymotion. Or XWT. That works too of course.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Just joined this glorious forum today and saw this place actually has entire thread dedicated to lucha libre! Viva! Just got my custom mask in the mail yesterday (hand crafted in El Salvador). Anyone else here have their own mask?

I forgot to mention earlier I watched a vid of Titan working out alongside a couple other tecnicos headed by Atlantis and all I can say is "Holy guacamole, Titan is a beast". It was also kind of funny cuz they weren't letting Dragon Lee try any of the exercises for some reason...probably because he was the CMLL golden boy or something.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Anyone here going to Luchamania USA? It has some HUGE names participating. If anyone is going and could snag some video I would love you forever, seeing as I'm on the frigid east coast.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I just watched a couple of old CMLL matches (Villano III vs Atlantis - mask vs mask and Emilio Charles Jr. vs Silver King - hair vs hair) and both had blood. Why doesn't CMLL have blood today? Are they the Mexican WWE?

I accept rep.

I may be wrong, but title matches are governed by the sporting commission (much like territory wrestling was in the 1980s) and thus cannot have blood in their matches. As for the rest of their matches, blood is kept to a bare minimum not, afaik, due to PG elements but rather as to not over-saturate their product.

It makes sense. Look at the feuds that do get blood such as Casas/Panther from last year. When they happen they're bloodbaths. The feud's culminated into such a boiling point that the men involved want to kill each other. For me, the very fact that it's a novelty element within the promotion adds depth to the match/feud when its used because it's not simply thrown around so loosely.

Besides, is Lucha even a style of wrestling that befits the use of blood in its matches? I wouldn't say so. It's more of a "purer" art-form than other styles in that it's about finesse, agility and perfected acrobatics over smash-mouth, ground and pound wrasslin'.
