Re: TNA: It still exists, kind of!

There's a strong irony in the news of TNA being up for sale being followed by a junk-sale spambot.

Re: Negro Casas vs. Blue Panther (CMLL 3/2/2012)

What I loved about these two is that they've taken the annoying short-fall concept and integrated it into a meaningful aspect to the match. For instance, the first fall came in around two minutes, but it made sense. Casas knew an early fall wouldn't be as detrimental to him as fighting the Fujiwara ...

Re: Negro Casas vs. Rush (CMLL 8/1/2014)

This is like something you'd see on WorldStarHipHop.com. It's just 20 minutes of a punk kid delivering a world of hurt to a broken down old man. Two years ago Casas was delivering a world of hurt to Panther, not looking a day over thirty. In the space of the last year, the booking has slowly built t...

Re: El Generico vs. Jigsaw vs. Kota Ibushi vs. Nick Jackson (CHIKARA 3/28/09)

Considering the talent involved (and I hope that doesn't come across as accusatory/elitist), this could have easily devolved into something mindless. It didn't. It's not going to make my list, and I don't even think this is the best spotfest involving either Generico nor a Young Buck, but it's high ...

Not even Vader/Tamura? I thought that was pretty much perfect the (all of one time!) I've seen it.

Re: Sangre Chicana vs. El Satanico (EMLL 5/26/1989)

Traversed back in time after seeing a 65 year old Satanico take it to Blue Panther; guy is just ageless. Brilliant build of hatred between these two, with Chicana getting into Satanico's head from the opening handshake and slowly driving the devil mad. Meat of the brawl comes in the third fall, when...

Re: Mexico indies

Not a co-promoted event, and Reza is just a new entity? Fighters NICE did a helluva lot of joint promotions with FILL years back and are pretty much a Monterrey staple. Lots of shows would be marked as "FILL/Fighters NICE: [show name]". That or I'm seriously confused. So, Sergio Reza used to run Fi...

Re: Mexico indies

Any idea if Hechicero/Cerebro will be found in full, anywhere? I usually mesh together the Estrellas del Ring and RUDO VISION recordings to get a full match but neither have the start. Slightly annoying, because it's a pairing I'd love to see.

Re: Nominations

Surprised that match hadn't been nominated yet. One of the best of the decade. Guess we're slacking.

Re: Keiji Muto vs. Toshiaki Kawada (AJPW 04/14/01)

SHINING WIZARD~! While Ditch regards this as Muto’s breakout match for his new persona, I cannot help but think that Kawada is mostly responsible for that. Everything Muto brought to the table, Kawada did or made better. This was, quite frankly, a hell of a performance by Kawada (more so than his us...

Re: Daniel Bryan vs. Randy Orton (WWE 12/16/13)

I barely remember this one, so I'm not sure it's going to be placing. What I do recall is that Bryan deviated from his formula and Orton was rather good (!). Load of time and some vicious limbwork made for a pretty darn good TV match.
