Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Volador Jr. vs Rey Escorpion for the light heavyweight strap is worth a watch. Don't know if they're turning Volador for the long haul but he was certainly technico for the night.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I was gonna ask around if that's any good. I've never been high on Volador so that's why I was skeptical. I'll give it a chance.

Seems like that & the Rush vs Terrible matches are the only two highlighted Lucha bouts I've yet to see from the year.

I was wondering about whether to watch this or not, tbh.

I'm trying to keep the number of matches I watch down to a minimum due to my Honours degree having to take preference, but if it's worth a watch I can definitely find time for this. Ta.

Tomorrow I'll give it time if I can.

Watched the Pequeno Reyes del Aire Match. Was solid. Nothing more, nothing less imo. Thought it went on a little too long.

Wouldn't put it on a level with Terrible/Rush, but it did have some nice high-spots.

You have awakened Condescending Casas from the confines of meme-land!

I kid. Watch it when you're free so you don't have to rush the enjoyment. It's worth the wait.

Those matches usually go a lengthy period - the standard Reyes Del Aire from last year was even longer (the video is an hour long).

But, yeah, shitty match for what it has been in the past - purely indicative of just how lacking CMLL's mini division is/has become. The entire opening sequence with Olimpico/Fantasy was bullshit with the usual "what do you bring to the table" story only being highlighted by Violencia's impressive work (which is something I should not be saying). Acero's selling is fucking abysmal and as each wrestler tired it just became so obviously co-operative.

The only good moments here was Pequeno Nitro's spear and the nice dynamic between Aero and Olimpico in the final moments. I'd have liked a longer sequence between the two but Olimpico was tired and we weren't going to get anything longer. Still, the desperation submission move did seem slightly out-of-place (like midmove they were told to end things) but it at least made sense.

It also didn't help that the one commentator's accent morphs Bam Bam's name so a certain spot with Fantasy ended up being describe, with great excitement, as "Bum Bum Fantasy es muy grande".

Titan is a great young talent, my only problem being the disassociation between his name and his short stature.
