General thoughts about the lucha set


Recommended Posts

 

I probably could have put 1-10, and 11-20 through a randomizer, and I still would have been just as satisfied, albeit less frustrated calculating the final result.

1. MS-1 vs. Sangre Chicana (9/23/83)

2. Gran Cochise vs. Satanico (9/14/84)

3. Espanto Jr. vs El Hijo Del Santo (Mask vs. Mask) (8/31/86)

4. El Hijo del Santo vs. Negro Casas (Mask vs. Hair) (7/18/87)

5. Emilio Charles, Fabuloso Blondy y Pirata Morgan vs. El Dandy, Atlantis & El Faraón (7/21/89)

6. Solar, Ultraman y Super Astro vs. Sergio El Hermoso, Bello Greco y Rudy Reyna (2/26/84)

7. Tony Salazar vs. Herodes (3/2/84)

8. Pirata Morgan vs. El Dandy (Hair vs. Hair) (9/23/88)

9. La Fiera vs. Babyface (8/15/86)

10. Atlantis y Satanico vs. MS-1 y Tierra Viento y Fuego (Hair/Mask vs. Hair/Mask) (9/22/89)

11. Satanico vs. Shiro Koshinaka (Hair vs. Hair) (7/30/84)

12. Blue Panther/Sergio El Hermosa v. Super Astro/Solar (10/17/87)

13. Sangre Chicana vs. Satanico (5/26/89)

14. El Brazo, Brazo Del Oro y Brazo Del Plata vs. Hombre Bala, Pirata Morgan y El Verdugo (Super Libre) (11/10/89)

15. Emilio Charles vs. El Dandy (Hair v. Hair) (7/28/89)

16. Atlantis vs. El Satanico (1984)

17. El Hijo Del Santo vs. Espanto Jr. (4/10/88)

18. Babyface, Cien Caras y Mascara Ano 2000 vs. Lizmark, Rayo De Jalisco y La Fiera (September 1986)

19. Sangre Chicana vs. Perro Aguayo (Hair vs. Hair) (2/28/86)

20. Pirata Morgan, BabyFace y Cien Caras vs. La Fiera, Lizmark y Rayo De Jalisco Jr. (September 1986)

 

And the bottom 5. Disc 9 was a real chore to get through the second half of, and that really shows with this.

 

96. Blue Demon Jr., Super Astro y Mascara Sagrada vs. El Supremo, Espectro Jr. y Blue Panther (10/6/89)

97. Jerry Estrada, Ary Romero y Rick Patterson vs. Javier Cruz, Eddy Guerrero y El Dandy (10/6/89)

98. All Star, El Dandy y El Texano vs. Espectro Jr., Jerry Estrada y Rocky Star (10/13/89)

99. Jerry Estrada vs. Javier Cruz (Hair vs. Hair) (10/20/89)

100. Chavo Guerrero, Cien Caras y Mascara Ano Dos Mil vs. Lizmark, El Satanico y Rayo De Jalisco Jr. (10/20/89)

I've sent in my ballot.  I can't say that beyond the top 10 - 20 I'm hugely happy with it.

 

Is the next set coming soon?

Not happy with the set or your ballot? I think the general rule for people who've been thru the ballot process before is that after the top 25 it's really not worth stressing yourself over the difference between 46 & 47.

My ballot.  This is 8th set I've sent a ballot for so I know what its like past a certain point.  I think the problem was that I really like lucha but generally prefer single rather than trios (or even tags for that matter) so this set was always going to be mixed.

While there was a lot on the set I didn't really care for, I was introduced to so much stuff that I otherwise would have never discovered, it was totally worth it. I can't wait for the next set. Are we still looking at a top 100 for 80s Portland as the next set?

hanks to everyone who has seen in a ballot thus far. We still have less than a dozen, so I would love to see more! IT'S NOT TOO LATE!

Still some people at PWO working on their ballots also.

Finally finished the set and sent in my ballot. This was the hardest set to get through, but the most rewarding. When we finish the 80's project, there will be a lot of these matches and wrestlers in the top tier of 1980's professional wrestling.

DJ Spectro wrote about that much about six months ago and claimed Altantis won in straight falls (the first fall via excessive violence and the second fall ending in a foul) -- https://www.facebook.com/LuchaLibreDeAyerdeHoyYSiempre/photos/a.461505387230535.102143.454597374588003/715819081799163/ I thought it must be another match since Satanico wins the bout on the set. 

 

SuperLuchas probably have it right since they have other results from the card, but man is lucha research frustrating.

I finally finished my ballot.  Thanks to Will, Ohtani's Jacket, and everyone else who made this a great learning experience, and a lot of fun.  Now I know why Phil is so crazy for lucha.  This was a challenge to get through, but totally worth it in the end.  Here are my top 20 matches.  I favored singles and stipulation matches, apparently:

 

1.   Sangre Chicana vs. Villano III (12/7/84)

2.   Satanico vs. Super Astro (10/26/84)

3.   Tony Salazar vs. Herodes (3/2/84)

4.   MS-1 vs. Sangre Chicana (9/23/83)

5.   Espanto Jr. vs El Hijo Del Santo (Mask vs. Mask) (8/31/86)

6.   Sangre Chicana vs. Perro Aguayo (Hair vs. Hair) (2/28/86)

7.   Arandu vs. Guerrero Negro (Hair vs. Hair) (1988)

Every time DJ Spectro writes about an old show, I add it to my database. I went to do that with a show a few weeks ago, and noticed he'd previously posted about a show the same day but with a different lineup. He seems to have a lot of information but may not be the best organized. If I didn't have a database, I don't know how I'd keep anything straight either - but the guy doing the recent pieces for SuperLuchas (indy referee Teddy) appears to have a huge collection of lineups/results which aren't available anywhere elsewhere else. Glad we're at least getting a What Happened On This Date post from him.

 

(This is crazy nerd stuff, sorry.)

Sooo any update on this and when the next set is supposed to come out? I mean we're like 2 months past the extended deadline of January 1st and still haven't really had any official announcement.
