Mike Cruz vs. Vordell Walker-Vintage Wrestling(1/19/13):***3/4
This was the powerful Vordell Walker versus the tinier Mike Cruz. Watched a few matches of Vordell in 2012 and I enjoyed the heck out of those primarily his matches with 2 Cold Scorpio and Jon Davis, throw in Cruz which I've heard some good things about and I was thoroughly intrigued when this popped up on my YouTube page. It was with reason. They both play their roles to a tee here. Vordell throws Cruz around like a rag doll and itís awesome. Cruz is for the majority of the match finding himself getting destroyed but when he finds an opening he goes for Vordellís leg with loud kicks and itís great. Cruzís short bursts of attacking the leg play a large part into the match such as when Vordell catches Cruz off a springboard, it looks like Cruz is about to be thrown in the air again but NAY Vordellís leg gives out for a little bit so when he goes for another move Cruz is not as caught off guard and can counter it.I feel like I should say though I came out of this match liking Vordell's selling of the leg more than Cruz's attacking of it. Really liked this match. For me everything made sense which you donít seem to get a ton of in the world and I got a solid ending to 11 minutes of action which is a real joy.

I've had a pretty deep seeded hate for Vordell Walker since 2005. Guy sucks. I'm willing to give him one more chance. Maybe 8 years later he'll have a match I enjoy.

If you hate it then fuck you I guess :P But its only 11 minutes so you're not wasting that much time if that's the case.

I'll get it done later. Along with the Hayashi/Kondo vs Tanaka/Kanemoto tag, & two lucha matches posted by Rah.

Still have Main Event on tap (lol no MOTYC I know) and whenever I can find that damn link to watch ROH 1/19.

Because Cruz started targeting the wrong knee with his drop-kicks before being prompted by Vordell, amirite?

I kid. Vordell's not particularly proficient in selling his own offence, but I stopped giving a shit once that leg came into play. His selling was pretty much perfect here, and I loved how it made this match work. I had no belief at all that Cruz stood a chance in beating Vordell (and I still don't) but the dynamic of Cruz knowing this, working in "hope" pins after even the most basic of his moves, and the piranha-like relentlessness on Vordell's knee made the outcome so believable.
Rating: 3.75+

Quick note, I've watched them and my expectations outweighed my final thoughts. The trio-tag is a pretty fun, solid match that certainly is a good time killer but that Pequenos Del Aires is definitely proof of just how advanced AAA's minis are ahead of CMLL.

I wrote a pretty lengthy write-up but scrapped it, as I'm thinking of rewatching this match, as well as Polvora/Titan, come the end of February. I have a feeling that my lower ratings are more inherently related to myself than the matches as I've been slightly jaded by wrestling for the past few months. Cubsfan should have his recaps up by then, too, and I'll read through them to see what he particularly liked about each match, first.

Anyway, 3.75 for the Pequeno Reyes del Aire match is about right, for now. The dynamic between the last two wrestlers was psychologically sound and there were a few good moments, nonetheless. Pequeno Universo just should not have been in this. What a clunky performance.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

I'm still going to give them a look for the fun of it. I've decided to make you the unofficial Lucha guy for me to keep up with it on a decent level for 2013. So chances are whatever you pimp or give notice too, I'll check out. Whenever I seem to do it, I always witness GARBAGE from AAA and don't ever want to bother with current Lucha. So...I'll let you weed out the good gems.

Good match between two solid talents there. If you don't mind me asking why do you have a deep seeded hatred for Vordell Walker?

Boring, slow, clunky, dead crowd. ** 1/4 at most. Sorry,

Yeah, Vordell is every bit as bad as he was in 2005. Nothing exciting about him at all.

re: The 2013 MOTYC Thread

(AJPW 1/3) Asia Tag Championship Match: “Junior Stars” Minoru Tanaka & Koji Kanemoto vs.“Team 246″ Kaz Hayashi & Shuji Kondo: **** 1/4

Awesome match, great story told throughout the match, a lot of great spots and drama especially at the end of the match. I would do a full review but I'm not really in the mood for it. But definitely one of the best matches so far this year. And probably the best tag match of the year thus far.
