Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Dinastia, LA Park, Cibernetico and minis are the only reasons why some people still watch AAA. I always thought of AAA like of lucha version of TNA and CMLL as of lucha version of WWE.

I accept Hayley Williams rep.

I still like watching Dr. Wagner Jr (and LA Park needs to stop wearing white)

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

AAA is kinda like WCW. They aren't making many new stars (Daga is probably the only star AAA made in 2012, I may be wrong, though) and are using veterans (like LA Park, Dr. Wagner Jr.).

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

It seems to alternate from a six sided to four sided ring often. That's odd

If I get it right, six-sided rings are only used for PPV's and weekly shows use four-sided rings.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I also enjoy how embedded into society lucha libre has become in Mexico. Statues of wrestlers, vendors selling masks on street corners and even political-activists dressed as luchadors (Super Barrio being the big name I think of....He's even met Subcommandante Marcos of the Zapatista movement!! )

Touche. I've seem to focus on it like that too. Especially with the TNA/AAA relationship. (I know TNA has done some with CMLL too, but that's neither here or there for the sake of the comparison)

Damn you. How dare you besmirch my favorite promotion, LOL.
The description is accurate though, however I don't necessarily view these as a negative and find the product thoroughly entertaining. Character and story wise they're probably the best promotion in the world IMO.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews



Only in AAA can you see LA Park teaming up with La Parka, so they have that going for them. Plus, I'm so familiar with their roster that despite all the flaws, I do manage to get a kick out of it. More so when I've learned to turn my brain off and have to deal with the crap that can go down. Aka - The TNA approach.

Wow, the comparison really does go hand in hand.

As far as characters go - AAA has a fun bunch. I'm still a sucker for Chikara in that retrospect, however.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I'm always thrown off by the multiple personalities who typically share the same or somewhat similar name, particularly LA Park. LA Park is the ORIGINAL, correct? And some legal trouble occured and he had to change names? Speaking spanish would help me so much right now.
