Dinastía, Mascarita Dorada, Octagoncito vs Mini Charly Manson, Mini Histeria, Mini Psicosis
AAA on Televisa (Regional): 2012-08-12



Right, so I haven't followed Lucha religiously since the epic Casas/Panther match (for shame, I know) but something about this caught my eye. It could possibly be due to myself being an over-zealous Mascarita fan but I'll rather side with an explanation that keeps my fanboyism secret and say it's because of Cubsfan that I watched this.

Now I can't go out on record, like he did, and say "not only is this one of the best minis matches but also one of the best trios matches all year" due to my inexperience with Lucha as of late but I cannot overstate how great the work here is.

On the one hand you have an excellent rudo dynamic peppering the majority of the match with just the right amount of técnico brilliance to help push the feud over. As always, Mascarita bumped like a Mexican Dolph Ziggler in this match due to the size concession he gives the other minis. The way he's manhandled and just ragdolls around from simple moves is just lolworthy. Dinastía, however, once again stole the spotlight despite still being so young. His plethora of new yet crazy moves never seems to end.

If you're going to watch any lucha (especially any minis action) this year, I cannot see why this shouldn't be one of your first go-to's. Almost as balls-crazy and immersive as anything else this year. It's just how a minis match should be.

Wow that minis match. Everyone go watch that. Thanks for bringing it to my attention, that was honestly a great match. I've never seen Dinastia before so that was quite a treat. I don't think I've ever seen a pin broken up with the running shooting star, but even if I have it was never that smooth.

Totally agree. Its a shame they didn't think its wise to leave the belt on him for a while. It looks like boring title matches until Wrestle Kingdom.

Tanashi vs Okada - Fantastic match, I'd say it is match of the year (with Lesnar vs Cena contending with it, but I'll give this match the nod for now). Okada plays a great character, kind of reminds me of Gilgamesh from Fate Zero (random anime reference!), Tanashi is pretty hype too. Very dynamic match, and the way they teased their spots were great, I thought. At a certain point toward the end, it really feels like every move was going to matter, and I was actually in suspense in what was going to happen which doesn't really happen in Pro Wrestling very often.


Ibushi vs Omega - I thought it would have been cool if it had more kung fu sequences like at the start of this match. After a while it goes from a nice spot fest to just plain bad in my opinion. I mean really, the guy does a back flip off a balcony and it doesn't mean anything. The selling was terrible, and when I say selling I don't mean the lack of it (ie no selling), but I legitimately think the acting was just bland and uncharismatic. Might have been a bit more entertaining if it was shorter at the very least.


Psicosis, Manson, Histeria vs Dinastia, Dorada, Octagon - Very nice display of acrobats. A good match worth a watch. I think if the guys didn't constantly do kip ups and curt wheels it would have made their spots better. What I mean by that is literally even when the guys are waiting to fight, they're doing a bunch of kip ups. Save that stuff for when you're actually in combat.

Anyone who saw him in the NOAH feud in 09' knew he had "it". His two Dome matches were underwhelming as hell but the chances of him still being awesome were higher than him completely forgetting how to work a crowd and be great at this wrestling stuff.

Completely agreed. I found the match exciting to watch but it doesn't deserve to be anywhere near a MOTYC list.

If pandering to the crowd's pleasures and SPOTZ~! gets you that accolade then we may as well throw in every Dragon Gate, Michinoku, CMLL and Jack Evans match this year.

Worst Kenny Omega match I've seen so far (ratings wise).

But on the topic of Michinoku...
Kenou Vs Hayato "Jr" Fujita ( M-Pro 03.06.2012)
Youtube


Sweet jeez was this a war with chest kicks delivered with the power of a thousand Bryan Danielsons. Fujita had split skin, ffs.

A great heel/face dynamic styled match with the struggle for control taking precedence throughout the match's body. Some truly phenomenal transitions that cannot help but make you wince especially when babyface Hayato slowly gains leverage midmatch only for Kenou to level him with a vicious punch to the gut. Not every transition worked, though, and I'm not sure if the brilliance of most over-shadowed these moments (and they'd be negligible in another context) or they were truly flat - most notably the finish and a flying stomp looking weak comparatively to the rest of the beating these men delivered.

Otherwise, the rest of the match portrayed their hatred to a tee and their viciousness felt organic with the match seemingly feeling like a shoot-fight at times thanks to Hayato's brilliant selling. Add in a hot crowd, a fitting title change and (if you can ignore the let-down finishing knee strike) a finishing stretch that will have you wincing in pain even more and you're left with quite easily one of my favourite matches this year. I think I've given a lot of this specific rating out lately but if any deserves it this match does. Hayato "Jr" Fujita is slowly creeping up my list of favourite young prospects. Stop playing with yourself and go watch this now.
