Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews
 
Does anyone here actively watch Lucha?

During my search for great hidden gems in wrestling, I've been digging deep into lucha and have come back with some of the best matches that I've ever seen. I'm eagerly awaiting for the Best of the 90s Lucha Set from IVP Videos.

Since my interest in the U.S. indy promotions and puro this year has really gone down because of lack of quality and my near refusal to watch anything from TNA and some WWE, lucha has been my last refuge.

Thankfully there are blogs out there that exclusively cover lucha on a regular basis and put up links for matches and shows. This one is probably the best one that I've found:

I watched this year's Triplemania and I have to say it was an awesome show. That's all the Lucha Libre I watched this year.

I haven't seen that yet. I've heard good and bad things about L.A. Park vs. La Parka. But hearing how the atmosphere and everything going into it, makes me want to track it down.

Everybody knows am a lucha junkie. The Cubs Fan have the best lucha site.

There so many matches you can choose from.

Triplemania, was a good show. La Parka vs. La Park is my match of the year, I love the atmosphere and hate between the two. Not about respect, it's about hate. No shaking the hands or none of that bs.

Ignore Lucha Libre USA if you want to talk real lucha libre. Lucha Libre USA is ok at times but it's nothing like wrestling in Mexico.

Do you know anywhere where I can watch the match? No one here uploads any lucha. I saw something on Youtube but it was incomplete and some used a camera to tape to the TV screen which is horrible.

I haven't heard anything good about Lucha Libre USA.

I found one page where the match is uploaded with the aftermath, but if you don't speak spanish you won't understand anything. If you want and it's not considered spam I can post the vids here or PM ya...

I found the links to TripleMania. Can't wait to watch it tonight.

Need to catch up on CMLL and IWRG.

TripleMania was probably the funnest show I've seen all year. Miles better than WrestleMania. Even the less than great matches were fun except for the tag title match as that was too slow and unorganized in my opinion. The main event is a legit MOTYC. What great heat and drama in that one.

I now think IWRG will get promotion of the year from me.

I was watching 2010 VDE part 1 today and Aerostar hit some amazing spots that has to be seen to believe. I actually enjoy Silver King vs. Vampiro vs. Wagner.

IWRG and AAA relationship has been great this year. Imagine if TNA and ROH did shows together.
