Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I don't watch a ton of Lucha but I like that this thread seems to be getting used a lot more than last year. At least it seems that way to me. Greatness

Seems a bit much, wouldn't you say? It's not meant to be literal. If so (El) Terrible wouldn't get any praise.

Jokey finish. idk, sets the tone of my point.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Every time I hear the word I automatically associate it with someone/something of immense stature. I subsequently can't help but notice how small the guy really is. Kinda like the biggest guy in the jailhouse being named Tiny, but in reverse.


I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Maybe that was a basis behind the name. An ironic yet complimentary moniker to embrace his skills being titanic, not his size.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

If the idea was to get me to think on the issue, then it was an ingenious ploy. As oppose to being an anonymous young technico.

Lucha bookers were looking for a new way to keep fans engrossed. We cracked their code.

Great show, too bad I don't understand Spanish.

I accept rep.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Just wanted to take the time to point out that El Santo, one of the biggest names in lucha libre, passed away almost exactly 29 years ago, on February 5th. Viva El Santo! Viva lucha libre!

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Why was a hardcore spot the #1 moment?

Unless I read the title wrong and that isn't "top 100 moments in Lucha Libre".
