I just received the Top 20 Lucha Libre Matches of the 90s DVD from IVP today for my birthday and I'm loving every bit of it.

El Felino vs. Ciclon Ramirez [CMLL 5/23/93]
Great match with fantastic mat work and then later on even greater high spots. The tope from Ramirez into the crowd was mark out worthy. I don't understand the ending of the match as I don't know the storyline between Felino and Negro Casas but it was all good either way.

Rey Mysterio Jr./Super Calo/Winners vs. Psicosis/Heavy Metal/Picudo [AAA 1/29/93]
This is a spectacular match even with the nutty finish although I'm more forgiving to a match that has a bad finish but it awesome in the rest. Psicosis is a bumping machine. All the rudos were amazing in this. I also marked for Heavy Metal's Testament shirt.

they're cool 2 but last time i watched cmll there was a few other guys who had basically the same style as any of the three men. it gets repetitive.

16-Man Cibernetico Match [CMLL 11/26/99]
If this wasn't so clipped, this would have probably been an amazing match. But what was there, it was a lot of fun. The last couple eliminations were great too such as Ultimo Guerrero doing a top rope inverted suplex to Tarzan Boy and then the spring between Guerrero and Santo.

I prefer the real thing.

Mr. Niebla vs. Dr. Wagner Jr. [CMLL 9/3/97]
I really liked this one. You could just feel the hate between these two and it really helped as they threw everything but the kitchen sink at each other in terms of maneuvers but it didn't feel like overkill or moves for the sake of moves.

I totally forgot about that match, I have to re-watch it one day.

Electro Shock vs. Dr. Wagner Jr. [AAA - 6/6/10 TripleMania]
I was excited for this match as it was finally one of the main events and especially after a terrible mid card. My excitement soon turned into disappointment as this was a very sluggish and sloppy match. There were so many dead spots to this match that it felt twice as long. It almost seemed like neither man really gave a shit out there in the ring and just hastily threw together a match.

L.A. Park vs. La Parka [AAA - 6/6/10 TripleMania]
Now we're talking! Fantastic match with tons of heat, hate and great brawling. It's great to see La Parka continue being a great bumper. Although the finish isn't amazing, it still doesn't take away from the greatness of what transpired before. Chair shots and table spots galore and given a lot of time.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

The segunda caida blog in the original post is one of the best wrestling blogs on the net, btw.

IWRG has by far been my favourite promotion this year, and Black Terry Jr's handheld footage is awesome since you actually get to hear the crowd. There's never been any point where I think AAA was all that good, and current day CMLL does nothing for me, either. The only current lucha I can be bothered with is the indy stuff like IWRG and spot shows in scummy ghetto arenas with Navarro and pals. Black Terry is also the best in the world right now. Shameless plug, but I've talked about a bunch of 2010 IWRG in my own blog (link's in my sig), too.

Check out some 1990 and 1997 CMLL. Two of the best years any promotion has ever had. 1990 El Dandy is particularly outstanding. Dude doesn't get much praise at all on here but he's legit a top 5 ever guy for me.

Black Terry/Negro Navarro/Dr. Cerebro vs. Solar I/Zatura/Suicida [IWRG - 1/28/10]
Wow! This was phenomenal! Some of the best lucha mat wrestling that I've seen in quite some time. The Solar/Navarro and Terry/Zatura parts are amazing as everything they do builds off each other in each fall and some really nifty submission work. Cerebro/Suicida do some great acrobatic work in there too to bring in a different flavor to the match. This is a definite runner as a MOTYC. It's too bad no one here except for a couple of us even know and talk about this promotion and these luchadores (or lucha libre in general). This is also not for the casual wrestling fan but for the serious wrestling fan.

Suicida/Zatura vs. Traumas [IWRG - 1/14]
Holy heated lucha tag match Batman! Trauma II is one stiff bastard as he takes out Suicida and just grinds him to dust in the first caida. That reverse figure four was really nifty as well. The second caida was especially fun as it breaks down into a brawl on the outside but unfortunately it was too short. By the third caida, they were doing some really great traditional lucha flying with some ground work with a fun double pin/restart of the match until we got a winner. I'm having so much fun watching these matches. This promotion is continuing to surprise the hell out of me just like the weekly free WWE TV is on occasion.
