I love professional-wrestling.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I want to treat myself to classic Atlantis matches. Guy is one of many old vets who should hang it up today but decides he'll wrestle till he's dead. And then he'll probably wrestle some more while entering to a song by LMFAO. At least he had a linage behind him that makes it ok. I just won't watch his current work.

Fuerza Guerrera vs. Rocky Star - Mask vs. Mask Dec. 89
El Hijo Del Santo vs. All Star - Mask vs. Mask Dec. 89

^^ These are continuations of the confusing-ish tag you watched. Other than that + Villano/Atlantis I don't remember watching anything else there.


Actually I'm CERTAIN I've seen "Mascara Sagrada vs. La Parka vs. Fishman vs. Shu El Guerrero - Mask vs. Mask vs. Mask vs. Mask 8/26/00", but I thought it happened in 1995 or so. It's on youtube.

Eh, I'd rather not put that kinda money into something I know I'll NEVER get around to watching all of, plus it looks like a lot of tag matches (I prefer singles & a wider range of years on a comp). Appreciate the rec though.

I have a feeling the singles bouts would be MUCH easier to follow and I'd enjoy them more than that weird tag match. I'll probably just end up ordering this (only $15) along with the Best of Lucha in the 90s set from IVP. Certainly has to be a good introductory into the sport.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Just made my first Lucha order from IVP, looks to be 12 discs. I once again wanna thank Yeah and WOOLCOCK for all the lists and suggestions, really helped narrow down what I wanted to get. Here's my order:

Classic Lucha From the 80s Vol. 2-5 (http://new.ivpvideos2.com/advanced_s...ic+80s&x=0&y=0)
Best of Luchas Apuestas (http://new.ivpvideos2.com/product_in...ducts_id=10255)
Best of Lucha Libre in the 1990s (http://new.ivpvideos2.com/product_in...oducts_id=4302)

---------------------------------

On a different note, watched a tag match tonight from 1984. El Hijo Del Santo & Atlantis vs. Fuerza Guerrera & Lobo Rubio. The first fall just had some ridiculously cool shit going on for it to be 1984. You know that spot where two guys interlock their legs, get in a dual headstand and precede to slap each other (seen Dannielson, Hero, & Quack utilize it)? THEY DID THAT! In 1984! Plus there was this armdrag Del Santo would do where he would completely jump over his standing opponent and come down with the armdrag like it was effortless. So fuckin pretty. Stuff likes this makes me so excited to dive into so much more wrestling I haven't seen.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

I just watched Groon XXX wrestle Joe Lider with Shocker as ref only to end with a botched finish and a Gronda run in (to Warrior's theme). Post-match promo then has cheap 80s effects and 16bit music.

Can wrestling be any worse than this?

EDIT: that's a genuine question. Can anyone recommend/nominate the worst AAA in existence, please?

I actually did a google search of 'worst AAA matches' and it took me to a 411Mania post listing the top 5 worst gimmick matches of all time. This was on the list:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QNsVU...layer_embedded

5. AAA: Cinthia Moreno, Fabi Apache, Mari Apache Vs. Jennifer Blake, Sexy Star, Velvet Sky: "Lucha a Oscuras" - Whenever someone labels AAA founder Antonio Peña a genius, I tend to look back at this creation. Mind you, the concept is silly at best, but some versions of this match have been watchable, if not enjoyable. The concept is simple, turn off all the lights except for some neon lights, and have the luchadores put on a match in outfits that glow in the dark. In my opinion the worst of these matches occurred at Heroes Inmortales V. The match was a 3 on 3 females match, Cinthia Moreno, Fabi Apache, and Mari Apache faced Jennifer Blake, Sexy Star, and Velvet Sky. The gimmick adds absolutely nothing to the match. Sexy Star is the only one with an outfit that truly stands out visually, and the match itself is nothing special, maybe because it was hard to keep up. Mind you, the Apache sisters, who can keep up with males, don't believe me look up their match with Los Traumas, are on here. It isn't a total catastrophe, it can be a sight to see when someone like Aerostar dons full glow in the dark gear, and is flying all over the place, but this is the perfect example of a gimmick that adds nothing
