  1. El Hijo del Santo is great in this. The main from the IWC Legacy show in Denver.
  2. I had the honor of seeing El Hijo del Santo live on Sunday and filmed the match. This shot I thought was amazing. https://twitter.com/i/status/1177705271717531648
  3. Two lucha promotions ran within half an hour away from each other last night. One show had a bunch of AAA stars (Texano Jr, Pagano, Golden Magic, Faby Apache, Lady Shani, etc.) and the other had motherfucking El Hijo del Santo~! (I've always wanted to use that since I originally started reading the Road Reports 20 years ago... Fuck, I'm old). But the show also had Lance Archer, El Hijo de LA Park, Rocky Star JR., and Andrew Everett. And it was so worth it just to see how over El Hijo del Santo is with this crowd. Everett opened the show with a local kid Logan Austin who has improved greatly over the last year and I would say is one of the top guys currently in Colorado although my main local viewing consists of lucha and deathmatch wrestling so I might be missing people in some of the other promotions. ANYWAYS, I'm going to post some of the other matches later but here is Logan Austin Vs. Andrew Everett:
  4. Watching the Grand Prix show and digging Rey Bucanero's grumpy Raven look.
  5. I thought I'd post some matches I filmed a few months ago. Septimo Dragon and Delta Jr. Vs. Mick Moretti and Sol Azteca - IWC Legacy Mick Moretti is not only a workhorse in the ring but a guy doing everything he can to make a name for himself. He flew out on short notice and got himself booked on this show shortly after wrestling Mania weekend. Septimo Dragon is also great in this and hits some great spots. Low Ki Vs. Volador Jr. - IWC Legacy Low Ki ran a training seminar earlier in the day which was fun and while nobody got to do squats with filing cabinets, everyone found out why he is in such amazing shape. He was originally supposed to wrestle Laredo Kid but his flight was delayed so they subbed in Volador Jr. The match was alright, a short sprint. Phil Schneider talked about it in Segunda Caida and I just now got around to uploading the match. I'm going to upload some other fun goodies from the last few months like a great Puma King and Black Taurus Vs. Psycho Clown and a local luchador match. I've also got some older matches like Bandido Vs. Flamita Vs. Fenix Vs Matt Sydal and Zumbido wrestling in a granite factory lurking in my channel if it is of interest.
  6. I’ve been getting really into Lucha since TripleMania. That Blue Demon Jr. main was shockingly good with the bloodbath and the fan reaction were insane. I’ve also discovered the CMLL Live YouTube shows which have been great including the recent six-man that saw Místico/Caristico square off and get the crowd out of their seats at the standoff. One thing I don’t get though is the hype around Volador Jr. I’ve seen him a few times this year and he feels like he is a step behind or maybe he just mails it in for the smaller shows.
  7. I picked up my WrestleKingdom tickets a few weeks ago and got my ringside~! New Years Dash seats this morning, I'm so excited for these shows. I agree on Ishii/Goto taking the tag league, what else do they have for Goto to do at this point? You could move him and Sanada into a feud I guess but if he doesn't have something on the bigger end of the card, it will just be shitting all over him and their attempts to get him over for the past year. I really want to see Shibata in a singles honestly, my original hope was him Vs. Nakajima or Shiozaki but with Nakajima winning the NOAH title along with NOAH getting bought out, I'm not sure either of those is an option. A lot of people are throwing Cody Rhodes' name around and while his showing at BOLA wasn't that bad, it isn't a match I want to see unless it is Shibata's professional soccer tryout.
  8. But does Ahmed getting hurt open up the spot for the Rock? I could see them not putting Ahmed back into a "serious" angle because they worry about him getting hurt again. If Rock doesn't join the Nation and just goes heel by himself, does he reach the level of success without having a group to play off of and eventually lead? I mean, I assume he does but it is interesting to think about the way he rises to the top without being part of the Nation.
  9. Here is a question that has probably been done to death but I cannot recall the answer: Was Rock joining the Nation something that was planned or a knee-jerk reaction to Ahmed getting hurt for the umpteenth time? If Ahmed didn't go down, would Rock still have joined as they wouldn't have needed the fourth?
  10. Thanks for the advice guys, I got right in and snagged tickets for all three nights! Sounds like the whole shindig sold out in 4 minutes, after I bought my tickets, I went back in and everything was gone.
  11. I'm really hoping it isn't. Myself and my friend from the UK are planning to make a trip out of this and the idea of a quick sellout is scaring us shitless. For people who have went through the PWG panic attack before, what is the process of buying online? Do you get an "Add to Cart" option for the event and then you check out via their order form? Can you buy 2 tickets in the same order? Would it make sense to purchase Night 1 and then purchase Night 2? Sorry, like I said, scared shitless haha.
  12. What is the deal with Jigsaw and Chikara? He hasn't been around in over a year but pops up here, I assume he is either under a different gimmick or this is one of those "it is for a storyline and I won't use you for two years but you better be available the second I need you" Quackenbush logics.
  13. Nah, you're right. It is essentially like someone calls cut. My favorite commercial break I've ever seen live is a Sheamus/Randy Orton match where Orton realizes they went to commercial, asks someone at ringside for a water and then stands there and drinks it while Sheamus sits outside selling a throw into the barrier. The second the light goes red again, Orton tosses the water bottle and rushes outside to get Sheamus.
  14. Did you end up making it to the show? I'd love to hear feedback on what you thought overall of the venue and the show.
  15. That Wrestling Diary is a great read and definitely a lot of help, thanks so much! I would be looking to get there the Sunday before the show and would hope (and it sounds like it is a possibility) to do a show every night or multiple shows if I can swing it. I did the Rumble in Orlando this year and did 8 shows in 7 days and then did a Mania trip last month that also included Jersey/NY/Philly and did about 13-14 shows during that time period so I make sure to get as much wrestling as possible. But so doing Sunday, I would likely pick up all of my tickets that day but definitely want to try and online shop for NJPW just based on what I've heard from year's past of the good seats for WK being gone and the ticket sales the next night. I usually have a big group I travel with for Mania but the Japan trip will likely be me and one or two other people so I am so grateful to you guys for providing me with this info.
