The La Parka vs. Villaņo IV match I saw on Nitro the other day had both of those things too.

tons more great ones I've seen plus dozens I haven't. IWRG have produced some awesomeness this year too.
I don't get Lucha much in my country, so that's the only one i've seen. I'll probably watch the rest one time but anyone who hasn't seen that match really should.

Viva La Lucha - eXtreme Rebellion - 27/8/2010

1. Scorpio Sky vs TJP - **1/2
2. #1 Contender for the PWR Minis Title - Pequeno Pierroth vs Mini Dragon - *1/2
3. Diabolic, Thunderwolf & Golden Scorpion vs Cyanide, Vintage Dragon & Bionico - **
4. Phoenix Star & Zokre vs The Young Bucks - **1/2
5. Steel Cage Match for the PWR Tag Team Titles - The Border Patrol vs El Hijo De Rey Misterio & Super Crazy - **3/4
6. Vaquero Fantasma vs Blue Demon Jr - **1/2

Very average shit. I think the longest match being the main event was around 14 minutes long. They really didn't give any time to the show and just show some awful shit. I'd hate to think people actually bought this.

Looked through my list and I forgot Villano III/Atlantis 17/3/00. Match of the decade contender right there.

I need to hunt down the MS-1 vs. Sangre Chicana matches from the 80s.

I can't wait for the DVDVR 80s Lucha set to come out in the next year. There's going to be a lot of goodness. Hopefully with that, it'll make some classic lucha more available in the community.

One of my complaints about wrestling forums is that there are a lot of puro available but not as much lucha available. People are missing out on some legitimately great stuff.

Thanks to the Segunda Caida blog, I found this ultra rare bloody chain match from Brazil in the 80s.

This is a chain match from Brazil and is a gritty, violent, blood drenched masterpiece. This has the really great Taxi Driver feel that the best late 70's/early 80's matches have, dark and grimy with two guys trying to murder each other. The match actually begins with some cool leglock based mat wrestling, before devolving into both guys punching and biting each other in open wounds. Aquiles is a really stiff worker and there are points where he is justing tearing Mr. Argentina's leg up with chain shots. He also does a Pirata Morgan level blade job at the end of this match where it looks like parts of his scalp were falling off. By the end they need to be separated by the cops, and it felt like a match that required a police stoppage. Awesome, I need to watch more Brazilian wrestling.

This is a classic match here in Brazil, although wrestling isn't over here like it used to be, every wrestling fan praises this match as one of the stiffest matches of all time.

You guys have 100% Lucha in Argentina down south. That's all I know. I have no idea about Brazil wrestling.

Re: Lucha Libre Match/Show Discussion/Reviews

Anyone has seen the last two IWRG shows? I don't know, I expected to see good lucha matches, but the shows let me down big time.
