Spoiler for Reyes Del Aire:

I told you so. Though it was pretty obvious, considering it now puts Sombra one up/tied in their best-of/all-time series.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Lucha round-up for the week:

La Sombra Vs Mr Niebla: *** 1/4 (Tirantes you geriatric referee, you!)

Dragon Rojo Jr. Vs Titan: *** 1/4+ (nothing lower than good but every big move was seemingly covered by the CMLL Arena graphic and I still loathe Titan's handstand shtick )

Polvora Vs Valiente: *** 1/2 (had to watch this in fast forward due to time constraints but it looked better than Titan/Rojo, regardless)

Las Traumas Vs Diluvio Negro I y Silver Star: *** 3/4 (No stop signs, speed limit, nobody's gonna slow me doooowwwnnnnnn!)

Negro Casas Vs Valiente: **** 1/4 ()


Still need to watch the Apaches/Traumas inter-gender match from PDM 01/01/2013. Anyone managed to find the full match, by any chance? After seeing their work here, I've realised how much I've sorely missed the Traumas and their exceptional matwork for the past year.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Looks like I got some catching up to do. Good thing I got the Rush vs Terrible match out of the way.

Oh, and Titan's handstand stuff OWNS. It's my favorite trademark about him.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Could only give Negro Casas Vs Valiente *** 1/4. Good match but felt like something was lacking. I'm gonna watch the other links you've sent Rah later

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

What did you dislike about it, out of interest's sake?

I'll grant that it's a "simple" Casas-esque match, but that's just how it was wrestled and something I doubt I could ever hate. Valiente's selling was second to none here and Casas changing his game plan from outwrestling Valiente to going for the knee was great. It really played up to Casas' attitude of him being the best in the world yet here's Valiente disproving that by outworking him.

As for the others, go ahead. They're good but if you didn't think Casas/Valiente was special, from my perspective, I don't think you'll find any of the others that spectacular, either. Well, aside from the Traumas/Silver Star matwork. No one could possible dislike that, surely.

Except for perhaps the really quick second fall (I get why it was done though) there was nothing I disliked about the match per se. It just didn't really blow me away or anything.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Just watched Negro Casas vs Valiente and I gotta say that it was nothing really THAT special for me. But that's just my opinion.

I accept rep.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

The legwork wasn't special? Valiente's selling wasn't great? The way they covered their botches, transforming them rather into struggle spots, wasn't something noteworthy and something other wrestlers usually don't do?

Bleh.

I understand it was two great workers putting on a great match, but I personally didn't enjoy it and I wasn't that excited watching it, that I was, for example, during matches involving Mascara Dorada or Volador Jr.
