  1. Laredo Kid & Hijo Del Vikingo had the Mexico MOTY tonight. My personal MOTY as well. Absolutely fantastic match that people would be raving about if it weren't on an AAA twitch show few outside Mexico actually watch. I'm assuming it will make the rounds in the next couple days. Hopefully AAA capitalizes on it themselves before someone else does.
  2. Everyone go watch Dragon Bane vs Fly Warrior from tonight: https://t.co/SwEzbLNC08 It's the semi-main before the Penta main event. The trios match right before it was also very good with Aramis/Eterno killing it as usual. But the singles above is just out of control insanity you won't even believe until you see it. Especially the finish.
  3. True. I was refering to only CMLL. He's had a couple good indy ones (vs Avisman, vs Aramis) recently. The last CMLL one I recall in Arena Mexico was vs Dragon Lee in late 2015 which was excellent.
  4. Yeah it'll probably be a match loved by some, hated by others. Was certainly nothing like the current Arena Mexico style at all. But surprisingly crowd was super into it - I think because tonight they drew many more hardcore fans rather than the tourists who would have boo'ed the slower paced style with two somewhat bland guys to the average fan. It's a shame Virus only gets 1 singles match per 3.5 years. I thought it was very good and exceeded all expectaions.
  5. Don't overanalyze random CMLL feuds. Someone wants a favor and/or has the right friend - that's your explanation most of the time. Why is Vangelis programmed with the second/third match guys but randomly finds his way into main events while nobody else from that group does? Because he's a COMPA of the Munoz family. Why did Universo 2000 Jr. get to skip opening matches even though he's clearly not ready for his midcard level? Because he's part of the power family. There's probably a similar explanation to Metalico suddenly getting booked to do stuff. Maybe he took Tirantes' role as backstage official.
  6. The referee was wrestler Black Terry who was in no shape or form qualified to do anything even if immediate help was required. Plus he comes from the old school mentality where you don't break kayfabe no matter what, even in the case of serious injuries. Even post-match as people are working on Silver King you can see Terry trying to motion that they just roll him out of the ring in order to get him to the back. The actual time between Silver King going down & someone qualified hitting the ring to help was a good 6-7 minutes which seems unacceptable. I was told not only was there no ambulance present, there was also no paramedic on hand remotely prepared to deal with anything serious. The wrestlers were all trying to figure out what to do themselves. Please don't take this as me throwing Black Terry under the bus. He was there because the organizers of the tour (Santo & Cassandro) brought him along & I'd be stunned if the promoters in London were even aware he was not a qualified referee. That's an issue for someone else to dig into. He never made it to the hospital, he was pronounced dead inside that very ring. All indications are it was a massive heart attack so had help been right there immediatly it's unlikely anything could have been done but the video is pretty damning to anyone associated with what went down. It should also be noted this was his second match of the day within a ~5 hour span. May not have had anything to do with the end result but certainly worth noting.
  7. This will probably blow up once the Nacho Libre people get wind of it. The fallout should certainly be interesting with the video out there & the obvious questions that arise from how everything was handled. Really tragic situation all around.
  8. CMLL tag final & AAA main from last night/very early this morning well worth checking out! Probably neither a workrate masterpiece for the star ratings folks but tons of drama in the former & chaos in the latter. Definitely two matches that should things are still very different in Mexico which is a good thing. AAA had a 4 way that's also worth checking between Flamita/Vikingo/Golden Magic/Villano III Jr. + CMLL had Valiente vs Hechicero which was as fun as a lightning match gets.
  9. Vangelis is a close friend of the Munoz mafi... erm... family. That's how he got into CMLL & moved into a near top spot.
  10. CMLL shows only exist live via YouTube because Julio Cesar Rivera wants his voice heard. If he ever fell out of favor or left the company (haha), those streams would be gone in a heartbeat. Mas Lucha streamed a pretty fun Gen XXI show from Queretaro tonight. The Indystrongtibles & Bandido 3 way were fun watches and if an LA Park/Wagner/Demon Jr. house show match is your thing I heard the main was okay.
  11. Vamp was a very lonely guy at Wrestlecon - did little business, wasn't booked on any shows. He dressed up in his Guardian Angel outfit and took his friends around taking pics with wrestlers who were actually working, all the while telling them all how much he loved them. Lucha Underground is all but dead. Basically what I'm saying is Vamp needs a reason to be relevant these days & has never been one to tell a story for attention. Let's see how this one plays out.
  12. They were always gonna be in the opener, we just made a special note since for some reason people were doubting they would appear with MLW happening at the same time. Which is odd since we booked them before anyone & actually helped MLW out by agreeing to put them on early Thursday & late Friday so they could do both events each day. No point being dicks and depriving wrestlers of paydays if there's an easy work around. But the point stands - don't be late! Starting off HOT! Hope everyone has a good time this weekend, come say hi if you see me at the Hilton!
  13. Season 4 was REALLY BAD. It was sad to watch the few fans left who were so attached they would actually defend it. "Nah man this Jack Swagger thing is great! Let's see how it plays out!" I got so much heat for dare pointing out how many friends of friends were suddenly getting on the show to get that El Rey money before it disappeared. Good times.
  14. You'd think so but the legal system is weird & it seems people who AAA wants to torture/blackmail are not going to be given any easy way out. AAA wants to keep control of them.
