Casas vs Panther is currently the Feud of the year and if the result of the Hair Match is a build up to a decisive title match that really could be a MOTD candidate and make explode all the fucking universe

Yeah, I've been meaning to watch that match. If it's actually better than Casas/Panther hair vs hair, I am in for a treat.

Jerry Lawler, Derrick King & Frankie Tucker vs Pokerface & LA Hustlers - MCW 03.03.2012
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCagk72y6m4

This was really fucking great. It's easy to look and think it's the Jerry Lawler show with 5 other local guys and in a way it is but the locals are really great in their own right too. Lawler steals the show and he's crazy good in it. King is a super babyface worker. Tucker is the outlier but he's basically a non factor in the match anyway. Then the heel team are really great and they're the ones that really make this more than the Lawler show. Faces get a long shine segment to start off and it's great. King looks good on offence and the heels are super stooges for them. Then Lawler comes in and the match really lifts off. Lawler's every bit as super as you'd expect him to be and the heels bump really well of his great punches. So much fun when Lawler was just throwing punches everywhere. They do the whole "I'm a good guy really, shake my hand" shtick once and it almost backfires on Lawler but he's JERRY LAWLER so he turns it back around. Then the other Hustler tries and gives him a fair shake. They follow that up with him giving Lawler a slow but clean break in the corner and Lawler gives him this great slap and has the happiest reaction to a slap ever. King plays FIP and he's really brilliant in that role. Heels lay a great beating on him too. No super limb work based control segment but they do a great job just pummelling on him and King's selling makes it really great. The audio's great on the video and you can hear everything Lawler says on the apron which is super because Lawler talking on the apron is better than most of the stuff that most modern workers do IN the ring. Lawler comes in off the hot tag and is super once again. Finish is super when Lawler goes for the piledriver on one of the Hustlers only for Pokerface to come in and make the save so Lawler just shrugs and sets Pokerface up for the pilerdriver anyway. Super spot to finish on and summed the match up nicely. Well worked and tons of fun. Felt like a really great old school Memphis 6 man. Post match stuff with Pokerface's retirement was the cherry on the cake. US MOTY right now for me.

Watched it a few days ago.

This match is possibly the best example to use in the defence against the use of excessive video cuts/editing. It totally killed the match for me and seemed to somehow make the heels come off cornier than they were. LA Hustlers were a great backdrop to Pokerface's lead heel role, though, and I must admit I didn't expect them to be decent, let alone good The faces were fine, but aside from Lawler, it's only the heel trio that I can still remember a few days later.

This isn't great technical wrestling, but it was never meant to be. This is Mid-South Rasslin' at some of its best - a very enjoyable, fun match with a lot on the line for Pokerface. It's a pity the crowd were more interested in heckling and getting themselves on camera than they were for Pokerface's final moments in a wrestling ring, but so be it. He's a tremendously sound worker and definitely befitting of a proper send-off on a bigger stage in front of a more respecting audience. He really has that "appeal" that would fit into any major promotion and its a pity it went mostly unnoticed.

If this was pro-shot I'm not sure how close my rating would have been to Seabs but because of the shoddy editing I didn't feel as involved as I'd have liked and settled on a 3.5+. If it was in full and sans poor camera work I'd probably go just shy of **** for what it did achieve, though. None of these guys' fault at all, so I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt and make an exception here. Pokerface deserves it, dammit!

I agree with Rah, I tried to watch it because I love Jerry Lawler. I had to shut it off about ten minutes into it. The cuts were driving me mad.

Since I've seen very little new wrestling last year, I finally decided I wanted to give this year a shot but unfortunately since MU has been shutdown and looks like Seabs is no longer uploading, I guess I'll just stick to WWE and lucha this year or whatever Dean posts on the DVDVR board.

Dailymotion and Youtube are your friend. Everything I've watched is there.

Virus/Arkangel De La Muerte vs Fuego/Valiente - CMLL 2/21/12


I'm not sure if I'm as enthusiastic for this match as others but this did have some very good moments dispersed in it. Outside of the Arkangel/Fuego sequence, at the onset, this match didn't fall from it's perching with Virus/Valiente making up for the slightly off start with their great chemistry.

The finishing sequences to each fall worked fine and, outside of a few gripes in the second, the caidas came across as wholly sound. The Rudo shenanigans were a nice touch, and a great platform for the Valiente comeback at the end of the match. Good platform for all men involved and especially for the seemingly slower and lethargic Arkangel who countered his inability to keep up with the high-flying offence by, well, knocking the crud out of the faces and just simply keeping them grounded.

El Hijo del Santo y Villano IV Vs El Hijo del Solitario y Ángel Blanco Jr. (TXT 25/02/2012)
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3


If you're wanting less humanity and co-operation then this is the Lucha match you need to watch - forget the Terry/Che match from the same month, too. This was a nasty, blood-filled brawl with as much disregard for having an aesthetically pleasing match as the wrestlers did for passing on Hepatitis-C to each other.

The heel work was great, with the Rudos really stepping into their own in this match serving a viciously sadistic beating onto Santo and Villano for most of the match - with Villano returning the favour with a sickening repeat chairspot. Just some amazing Topes and selling from the faces and a very, very well timed finishing spot.

That spot, damn. I loved how they just countered Santo's classic rolling senton (/Tope) with a brutal chairshot. Someone is going to die in the next iteration of this feud, mark my words. Jeez.

Not as good as the Casas/Panther Aspuestas bout but an easy second for Lucha MotY.
