I know Mexican wrestling has been hit harder than American and Japanese by covid but if anyone has a rundown of their favourite lucha matches of 2020 that would be appreciated.

I am keeping track of my favorite stuff here but keep in mind the empty arena stuff is not really my thing. Wrestling without fans is not pro wrestling to me.

You're probably tuned in but I updated the NFF Master List. I can't imagine anyone in the world would be better served watching a bunch of COVID 2020 lucha  opposed to all of the old lucha that's been unearthed this year:

Oh for sure I love checking out the old stuff you lads unearth.

Triplemania was largely what you'd expect. Kenny Omega-Laredo Kid was excellent and had some good selling from Kenny. Crazy finish. 

Pagano-Chessman belongs in the BLOOD SUCKING FREAKS thread. Chessman diving from the ring head first into an open chair was nasty, a lot of nasty bumps in this. Hugo Savinovich bled!

L.A. Park pretty much saved Monster Clown’s life on that dive. Lots of bad ideas on this show.

That said, I enjoyed it from top to bottom. I’m maybe turning the corner on Omega. I’ve never really *disliked* him, but never saw what everyone else saw. The last few matches I’ve watched, though, have been pretty great.

Hugo Savinovich occasionally switching to English to keep the gringos up to speed on the rules, customs, and other happenings throughout the show was the best English commentary pro wrestling has heard in years.

That main event was fuckin’ GNARLY for all the right reasons. Finesse shouldn’t be a big part of grudge matches IMO, and two dudes beating the mortal shit out of each other and recklessly tossing themselves at each other is high quality lucha libre.

Also; I half expected Randy Savage to show up during that Marvel promo match.

I found Triplemania via surreptitious means and Pagano/Chessman is pretty wild. Pagano destroying the tiny ladder, Chessman destroying his braincells on the chairs, Hugo getting wrecked with the guitar out of nowhere, it's all fun stuff. I realize that not only does Pagano have an LA Park tattoo but he has Jesus Malverde on his trunks, thus I suppose making his gimmick that of a Juggalo who works for the cartel. Them continuing to work with the tiny ladder was a dumb decision; I thought someone might've ended up puncturing a lung or something.

In case you don't wanna watch the match, Solar kicks MiSu right in the balls and his reaction is one of the worst I've seen from a low blow in an MMA ring as he is laying there dry heaving. Wear a cup, kids.
