from now on you have to use commas periods and all other forms of punctuation in all of your posts

Cibernetico 4/18/97
Kohsaka vs Yamamoto 4/4/97
Tenryu vs Fujiwara 11/24/97
Han vs Tamura 1/22/97
Eddy vs Rey from Halloween Havoc
why (?)

good choices (haven't watched Yamamoto/Kohsaka though).

1997 was an excellent year, wrestling wise. Agreed?
Positively.

Blue Panther/Negro Navarro v Solar/El Satanico (FMLL 5/3/11)
--Just awesome. Everyone here is well over 45 years old and they still work the mat better than 95% of wrestlers do in their peaks. Only goes two falls because of the demented finishes (which I won't bother touching on), but all up they get almost 30 minutes to work with and I adored every bit of it. There's a whole lot of arguing going on before the bell even starts and we open with Panther vs. Satanico which obv. leads to Navarro vs. Solar. There's only a certian amount of things those two can do after being filmed a billion times but I haven't gotten tired of it and I suspect I never will. There was one really awkwardly painful looking submission from Solar I don't recall ever seeing before though and it looked tremendous. They keep with the "both partners tag out simultaneously" trend through the whole thing, and, for whatever reason, it doesn't bother me a bit. Not here, not in WWE, not in WCW, not anywhere, and it really seems liek the kind of stupid thing that should bother my picky nerves. They swap things over come second fall and we get Solar vs. Panther, which, no joke, was the best part, like better than Navarro vs. Solar. They were moving stupidly fast for 50+ year olds and the counters and everyhing were executed better than any moves you'll see anywhere else. Satanico vs. Navarro was great as well obviously but Solar vs. Panther rocked my world sideways. I hate seeing Panther without his mask but he does some really good facial expressions. Like I said weirdly booked finish but just a great, great match and these four should be worshipped like giant island stone heads.

Solar I & Trauma I vs Negro Navarro & Trauma II-4/2/11 GLC. This is has been my favorite lucha match this year. Navarro is just a technical wizard and he and Solar go thru their usual move set but it's just amazing each time I watch it. Traumas added to the match as well as it's a technical classic watching Navarro work against his student Trauma I. This match is worth going out of your way to see. I have posted a link to this match in the 2011 match of the year thread.

AAA - Sin Limite - 4/2/11 (taped)

1. Charly Manson, Cibernetico & Escoria vs Jack Evans, La Parka & Nicho El Millionario
DUD

Seriously this was just plain awful... AAA seemed to have commercial breaks at the most inconvenient times and the finish just seemed so out of no where all of the sudden. I had to rewind to actually see it. The match as a whole just seemed to be a mess.

I agree that AAA is pretty bad at times. Every once in a while they pull out something really cool. I need to rewatch Mesias vs. L.A. Park from last year but that was quite something.

The more I think about it, Comando Negro vs. Pollo from IWRG might be my favorite match from 2010. It has everything that I love from wrestling nowadays: the spectacle, hot crowds, brawling, blood, a guy in a chicken suit chucking chairs at his opponent's head, a midget in a chicken suit getting abused. If a wrestling fan can't love that then I don't know why they watch wrestling.

AAA been pretty good this year especially La Park, he is just awesome. Everything you want in a lucha libre wrestler from workrate,comedy,charisma,toughness all roll into one. One of his best years.

So far IWRG has been on fire this year, as is par, but people really need to check out the Negro Navarro/Black Terry vs Apache/Angel Imortal tags from January.

Watching (or in some cases re-watching) some AAA on Goodhelmet's 1993 yearbook, and Konnan might have a case for the worst wrestler ever. Not talking about wrestlers that were around for one match, clearly sucked and were never heard from again (because they sucked THAT bad); I'm talking in terms of guys that've had long (or semi-long) and/or successful (or semi-successful) careers, and Konnan is pretty much the bottom of the barrel in that category for me. Literally can't think of anything he does well. Actually he gets kicked in the dick by Cien Caras a lot so there's that, at least.

This. Discovered the gods that are Black Terry and Negro Navarro in early 2010 and they've provided great entertainment ever since. Terry in particular is just an amazing brawler as well as his bumping and slick matwork and the Navarro/Solar exchanges just never tire despite them locking up on a weekly basis lol.

**** for the 09/01/11 and 16/01/11 tags as well

Damiancito El Guerrero v Cicloncito Ramirez, CMLL 01/07/1997

FUCKING MINI's MAN!! These guys are like no bigger than 5"3 but some of the stuff they do would shame men of normal height. Sensational matwork, slick counters, a breathtaking pace with all the moves executed crisply and no room for error. All the fancy stuff was built up to superbly well and these two have most likely become one of my favourite match-ups in wrestling. There's probably a few more matches I might put ahead of this as 'a better match' but I don't think any match will top this as a personal favourite. *****

Pierrotito/El Fierito/Damiancito El Guerrero v Cicloncito Ramirez/Bracito De Oro/Mascarita Magica, CMLL 03/10/1997

Probably up there with the Misawa/Kawada/Kobashi v Jumbo/Taue/Fauchi 6 mans from All Japan. At present I may only put Misawa/Kobashi v Taue/Kawada 9/6/95 and Misawa/Akiyama v Taue/Kawada 6/12/96 ahead of this in terms of tags. Like the above match the matwork is sensational, some innovative counters I've never seen before, Damiancito and Cicloncito tear it up once again. The dives are all built up to and the third caida is brilliant. ****/3/4

That trios is probably my #2 trios/six-man of all time. I'd take the 4/91 All Japan six-man over it, but I can't think of anything else.

I think Damiancito/Cicloncito is the best match ever, period.

Yeah I wouldn't argue with anyone who puts it as the best match ever, I'm half and half between that and Misawa/Kawada 3/6/1994 at present. Just an insane match.

Props to you on the blog btw, one of the best reads I've had over the past few months :eek:
