I just watched this and it was a great match. The first two falls were both short, but the first was very technically sound. The whole match was crazy non stop action. There wasn't much of a story to it from what I saw, except for Titan showing off a bit and mocking Polvora a little. This is still high up on my list so far. I'd give it ****. Might give this a rewatch soon.

Favorited Titan vs Polvora. Any backstory to the match I should know before heading in? I'd like to appreciate as much nuances to the story as I can. Unless it's a pretty straight forward Lucha bout.

I didn't know about any history, and I don't regular watch Lucha. It was still great.

So it's only me that had an issue with none of their moves having an end to the means (the submission onto Polvora's left leg not being sold or factored in later) or bored to shit by the "middle" part of the match?

Perhaps I'll rewatch this, but Fantastica Mania is looking rather too promising in delivering better matches than what I got from this.

They have a tiny bit of history that I am aware of (I'm probably missing a good portion to this). Titan went on to win the En Busca de un Ídolo tourney in 2011, capturing the National Welterweight Championship from Polvora. Having now captured the World Welterweight title, Polvora was set not to let the National champion one-up him again.

I'm sure someone more in the know on their lucha could shed some light.

Titan vs Polvora was a really great match. I'd give it ***3/4.

I'm one of those people, WK7 was the first full NJPW Show I've watched. Shinsuke Nakamura is probably my favourite wrestler right now. I am getting my brother hooked into it and I've recommended WK7 to a couple of friends, just waiting on the feedback. I found the Low-Ki/Devitt/Ibushi match is a good way to pull in people who aren't in familiar with NJPW. That's how I got my brother interested, then hit him with the brilliance of the Nakamura/Sakuraba match. Having known Gaijins in the card was another way I got to keep his attention, as proven when I got him to watch some of WK5. I'm trying to check out as much as I can, will be keeping an eye on this and the Puro thread so I can get the latest.

At least I got some bit of backstory behind their history.

You're a wise man, headless ponch.

I got my brother to view the PPV too. I'm always marking out about NJPW and he's always lost pardon the Gaijins, so giving him a brief history lesson + witnessing the event has actually made him aware of what NJPW is all about. Finally nice to have someone know what Nakamura SWAG is when I do it around my house and on the town. SWAG.

Titan vs Polvora for the CMLL World Welterweight Championship 1.01.13
Very fun match here. Started off with a nice pace and for the most part they kept that exciting pace throughout the match. They pretty much hit everything to near perfection, as I don't recall any screw ups, which is impressive considering some of the stuff these two were busting out. Hot crowd for this too. The ref is awful, though. Took forever to count and sucked all the drama out of any near falls. Still a great match.

Benham Ali & Zack Sabre Jr. vs Owen Phoenix & Prince Devitt
Insane Michinoku-Pro flavored tag epic with plenty of sick matwork. I was a tad disappointed at ZSJ not working babyface but he's absolutely fantastic at keeping a control segment entertaining with the slick WOS-style stretching he does. The match turns into an all-out war when Devitt finally gets hot tagged in. My only complaints here were I wish the Devitt/ZSJ interactions were more predominant and that the finish felt a bit weak in comparison to the rest of the match.
★★★★
