Very VERY casual CMLL fan here. Who are the best 5 in ring workers in CMLL right now?
That's a tough question because their roster is massive and diverse, but here are five that most will agree are great:
Rush
Dragon Lee
Volador Jr
Stuka Jr
Ultimo Guerrero (he's old but he's still great)

Remove Dragon Lee with El Soberano Jr. + Barbaro Cavernario and that's an ideal popular list.

Also, obviously Negro Casas & La Parka, when there, are a given.

Nobody mentioning Hechicero hurts my soul.

Final, for now, Gran Prix teams:


Still no idea who Dark Magic is, Flip Gordon can fuck off and I'm not a big fan of Okamura either. But other than that lineup looks pretty fucking good.

Noteworthy thing, Taven was not supposed to be on this card, but probably CMLL realized that Volador/Taven is something that people want to see. I'm sure that few months later we are bound to get Volador/Tave hair vs hair match.

I have a lot of fun with Okumura; kind of wish he was in Japan more often than the Fantasticamania tour each year.

Elgin & Finlay are interesting additions. It's like this weird blend of ROH and New Japan guys on loan together. Taven in CMLL really is picking up steam. I know he was a champion for a spell, then found his way into the main event of the Aniversario show, but it's kind of starting to really stick out.

Lining up Caristico next to Flip Gordon, good lord. That's a train-wreck.

Saw this earlier; cool stuff. Elgin vs Ultimo Guerrero here. Now that's something I'm totally in for.

Who knew Elgin would possibly thrive in Mexico? But I'll support it.

Please someone...Psycho Clown, explain the popularity?

Been watching some Luchas again,

It's been a while since my local cable picked up AAA or CMLL, but the last time I was watching regularly the Circus team, Zombie (Monster), Murder, and Psycho were getting a huge trios push.

Next thing I know Psycho Clown is headlining cards and taking the mask of Dr Wagner Jr? WTH?

I know he is a part of the Alvarado wrestling family but that can't be all. How did he get so over? Is he really that over?

Someone who is keeping up with luchas fill me in....please.

IWA PUERTO RICO returning in January with 3 events. With the Puerto rico scene being horrible and no promotion can barely draw a thousand,this looks intriguing.

Greetings!

As Alexa Bliss's Topless became viral. I reminded when Perros del Mal (on its promoter's age) made a bras and panties match. Loser was Sexy Star and you know the remaining story.

Aaa first 2019 show on twitch was trash but had a few bright spots. The Pepsi building looks great.

Viking,Myzteziz Jr and Parka Negra did well , great future ahead. Murder clown performed well.

La Parka son was introduced, no muscles or tone like his dad.

The next few cards looks great on paper.

Tonight twitch show has been really fun.

Aaa officially announced they left televisa. But the underlying big news is that they regain rights to sell the show in the US. Dorian really have no reason for lucha underground. They can go to El Rey and be like we can offer you a new show every week at a much cheaper price.

He did okay, nothing spectacular, but it doesn't feel like he is shitting up the place. I just hope that CMLL doesn't overpush him while he is still learning.

From AAA's point of view, isn't entire purpose of LU now to keep certain contracted wrestler from working promotions they don't want them to work?
