Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

If anyone sees a bloody lucha brawl this year, post it ASAP. I missed the Black Terry vs. Chico Che Hair vs. Hair match and the bloody TXT tag(s?) and I feel terrible an incomplete.

Did anyone catch footage of the Luchamania 2013 show in LA?

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I now umderstand why CMLL has no blood, but then why AAA has plenty of blood? Just watch Lider/Psicosis feud from last year.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

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'.
Great point. I don't often expect blood from Lucha matches like I do from something more along the lines of a gritty, southern style booked program. Lucha's heart isn't in that granted there are exceptions to the rule. Doesn't hurt CMLL to make the sign of blood noteworthy and a big deal when AAA has so much random blood in various matches that it means little or nothing at all. So many Mesias matches are flying through my head.

LuchaMania - Wait, I had a chance to see Mascarita Sagrada in person a few days ago? ahhhhhhhhhhh.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Does anyone here actually watch AAA? Is it any good? I've looked around, and I can't seem to find a good source for any of the matches/events/shows/whatever.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

If you like constant botches, mindfuckery type finishes, and egos running wild then AAA might be for you.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

It seems like a mexican abridged version of TNA in 2009 from an outside look.

Yeah, La Parka was the main reason I was interested.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

AAA minis > CMLL minis, though. Dinastía

Cubsfan usually posts the shows up on his blog via Sendspace, and every now and again to Youtube. This guy seems to upload entire shows.
