Negro Casas vs Blue Panther - CMLL 3/2/12
This is hair vs hair, and it is awesome. Negro Casas looks like the best wrestler in the world here. Every time he would do something to Panther he would get this huge grin on his face. And he was violently tearing Panther apart. A lot of it was really stiff too, especially for lucha standards. Panther took it all really well too. His facial expressions were also great, he really sold the beatings he was taking with a look excruciating pain etched across his face. I can't really think of any criticism for this match. I could see somebody watching and complaining about the first two falls being short, but they made sense. Flash finishes are pretty great, especially flash armbars after you have had your ass handed to you by Negro Casas. The third fall is lengthy segment of the match where most of the meat is. And damn if that meat isn't tender, succulent, and juicy as fuck. The fujiwara armbar to floor was awesome, probably spot of the match, month, and maybe year. A whole lot of goodness here.
CMLL continues their roll as best promotion in the world by riding the coattails of the Casas/Panther feud. And Negro Casas is the best wrestler in the world right now.
